The 3 best hotels in Lapa and Madragoa

LapaFlickr user pedrosimoes7

Lapa and Madragoa are set in the west of the city and are historically some of Lisbon's smartest neighbourhoods. Steep roads are lined with beautifully coloured mansions which now house some of the best hotels in Lapa and Madragoa, as well as a number of embassies. These districts are mostly residential areas so this is a great spot to stay if you want some peace and quiet yet with easy access to the city centre. However, the Museum Nacional de Arte Antique is within walking distance and has a superb collection including works by Rodin and Cranach and there is plenty of beautiful Portuguese tilework to be admired on the streets.
