Downtown Lisbon’s Baixa neighbourhood is the district for grand squares, impressive Art-Deco buildings and great places to grab lunch on a weekday. It’s also at the heart of the city centre. If you’re hoping to find Lisbon hotel deals within minutes of just about everything – from shopping in Chiado to Belém’s collection of World Heritage wonders – you couldn’t pick a better spot.
Nowhere else in the city has the mix of designer stores, chic cafés and upscale restaurants that you’ll find on Avenida de Liberdade. Cutting a swathe through Lisbon city centre like a colossus of consumerism, it’s often touted as the greatest shopping street in Portugal. You won’t find the cheapest Lisbon hotels on this bold and glossy boulevard, but it’s good for mid-range places to stay within easy walking distance of the city’s cooler quarters.
Speaking of cool, that would be Bairro Alto. This central, tightly packed district is famous for its rooftop bars, funky restaurants and late-night stores that are even cuter than the customers.
If you want clubs that open until dawn and don’t mind a bit of noise at night, Lisbon city hotels with great design credentials are here for the taking. It’s a surprisingly sleepy district by day, which is good news for party lovers who like a little nap in the afternoon.
Down on Lisbon’s waterfront, it’s all change. The seedy docklands have been swept clean and now make up the sleek and shiny Cais do Sodré riverside district, which is filled with smart bars and cafés, the city’s grand aquarium and the reimagined Mercado da Ribeira, now known as the Time Out Market and one of the city’s hippest new hangouts.
If you’ve set your sights on staying here, it’s worth shopping around. In between the great and glamorous, cheap Lisbon accommodation deals can still be found, and it’s also a good value district in high summer.
For medieval streets and mighty castles, quaint buildings and ancient cathedrals, it has to be Alfama. It’s the last place to look for Lisbon’s cheapest city hotels, but first choice for heritage guesthouses with secluded rooftop terraces, Moorish villas set in lush gardens and deliciously pretty boutique hotels. It’s a little too touristy for some, but it’s the only quarter in which true romantics can lay their heads in five-star Lisbon luxury.
Alternatively, make an escape and wake up to the Atlantic every morning on Costa da Caparica. Just half an hour from Lisbon, this seaside resort offers cheap hotel deals, even in summer.
