Best hotels near Praça do Comércio

Praca do ComercioFlickr user Davey6585

Praça do Comércio is Lisbon's grandest square. Overlooking the Tagus River and flanked by impressive canary yellow buildings it is a good place to start any trip to Lisbon. A statue of King Jose I stands in the centre of the square and two towers sit at each end, a feature which nods to the royal palace that used to be situated on this site before the 1755 earthquake. Centrally located the surrounding districts house superb restaurants, cafes and bars making this one of Lisbon's most sought after areas. The best hotels near Praça do Comércio lie in the Bairro Alto, Alfama and Chiado districts.
