Europe Lisbon Portugal

Best Luxury Hotels in Lisbon

One of Europe’s top hipster hangouts, the Portuguese capital is one of the coolest places for a city break. Packed with pretty pastel-coloured buildings, great bars, interesting boutiques, funky street art, trendy nightclubs, live music, mouthwatering restaurants and laid back cafes, it provides plenty of pop culture. But the hilly city also has historic sites such as a Gothic monastery, Moorish castle and an iconic tower. The retro tram rides are also a must, accompanied by some local port and a pastel de nata. With temperatures averaging between the teens and twenties, Lisbon rarely becomes too hot or too cold (ideal for British visitors). 

Lumiares Hotel and Spa

This 5-star boutique hotel is located in the bohemian and vibrant area of Bairro Alto. What was once a former 18th century palace has now been converted into spacious apartment suites – all of which have been created in collaboration with local brands, makers and artists. The vibe is authentic Portugal. The Lumi Rooftop bar and restaurant boasts stunning panoramic views across the city and serves contemporary dishes sourced from local ingredients. The small but perfectly formed spa is a haven for guests in which to retreat, relax and rejuvenate. This is a hidden gem worth seeking out.
