About Lisbon

Click here for the best places to stay in Lisbon

Lisbon is a vibrant city of charm and colour, filled with melancholic fado music and the characteristic rattling of yellow trams as they trundle past decorative tiled façades. A capital since its conquest from the Moors in 1147, it suffered a devastating earthquake in 1755 which resulted in much of the centre being rebuilt and some of the best places to stay in Lisbon are found in this rebuilt section.

Built across seven hills, Lisbon is an easy city to explore, with plenty of treasures to discover. Take a stroll uphill from the river and you'll come upon grand Gothic cathedrals, niche little museums, pretty palaces and the odd monastery just as readily as you'll come upon charming cafes and restaurants.

It's also a relatively friendly place, with well used public baths and a whole district full of music venues, where you can hear everything from fado, to reggae to electronica.

This is also a city on the ocean, which keeps things balmy, and Lisbon is probably one of Europe's warmest Winter city break destinations. Summer is obviously very hot and busy and if you want to ensure a bed in one of the best places to stay in LIsbon, you'll need to plan well ahead.

On the highest of Lisbon's seven hills overlooking the Rio Tejo, sits the Castle of Saint George which rises from the old Moorish quarter of Alfama, a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets. This is a perfect spot for watching the sunset, but also probably one of Lisbon's highlights.

The neighbourhood of Belém, at the mouth of the Tagus river, is another, packed with monuments and must-sees. This is where famous Portuguese explorers, such as Vasco de Gama, set sail from. It is also where the Jerónimos Monastery stands as a reminder of Portugal's power and wealth during the Age of Discovery.

Lisbon is also home to a number of interesting museums, parks and gardens and monuments - including the twin bridge of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The Hotel Guru's pick of the best places to stay in Lisbon vary from excellent value B&Bs to top end luxury for those with deep pockets (for city centre apartments check out our online partner, booking.com)!
