One thing we all have in common as we travel to Lisbon is that we need a place to stay during our visit. But, maybe you wonder where you should stay in Lisbon? Or maybe you wonder which are the best hotels in town? Or where you will get the best value for your money? Here you will get some advises related to picking your hotel in Lisbon and some tips from us concerning some hotels with fantastic quality and great value for your money!
First let us start with some things that are useful to know as you pick your hotel in Lisbon.
- There are no hotels in Lisbon that will help you do everything on foot. Since the attractions and activities in Lisbon are spread out you will for sure need to use transportation anyway, at least if you want to experience activities such as the funicular and the Oceanarium and/or visit the Jeronimos monastary and the Belem tower.
- The most central area in Lisbon still is in the vicinity of Rua Augusta, the main shopping street of the city. The ideal is therefore a hotel not so far from this area.
- If you are willing to use public transportation you can save a lot of money booking a hotel a bit outside the city center, just make sure that the hotel is located close to a metro station that will take you downtown in a few minutes.
- During the warmest summer days make sure not to go on very low budget hotels in which no air condition can be found! It is worth those extra Euros to get yourself a better hotel with air condition included!
