Places to stay in Portugal
Lisbon is Portugal’s star attraction with sun-kissed beaches, quaint restaurants, gothic cathedrals and picturesque outlooks. Lisbon makes a great holiday destination for romantics and families, with plenty to see and do. After resting up in a Lisbon hotel you’ll be free to explore all this city has to offer. Discovering Lisbon starts with a stroll through the narrow cobble stone streets or a day soaking up the sun on the beach.
Hotels are normally the most expensive option, but if you want to enjoy Lisbon like a king, Lisbon has wonderful hotels to match your expectations. You can easily find a hotel within your location where you would like to stay. When booking a hotel you should pay attention to some details that will help you to get the best price. The sooner you book, the lower the price, and the time of season will also affect prices. The lowest season in Portugal is from November to April.
One may think that staying in the "center of it all" may come at a price. But the truth is that many Lisbon hotel deals are located in the popular neighborhoods of Alfama, Baixa-Chiado, Barrio Alto and Rossio. These are the best places where to base yourself for sightseeing, almost never needing to use public transportation. The buildings in this part of the city tend to be old constructions, so you are not likely to find big hotel chains here. Those tend to be concentrated along Avenida da Liberdade and Marques do Pombal. Downtown, there are more hostels, guesthouses and boutique hotels.
