Lisbon has grown a lot recently, and the city is vibrant and very competitive. Some people already call Lisbon “The New Barcelona”. But big changes happen also in the Hotels, where every month there’s a new hotel. There are several hotels in central Lisbon, where you can stay for less than 150EUR per night, as top luxury accomodation and resorts.
In fact, hotels in Lisbon are very affordable. Anywhere else to stay at a luxury hotel that once was a palace or a castle, you may pay 500, 700 or even 1000EUR per night. In Lisbon, that doesn’t happen, I can assure you.
Here’s a list of the Top 3 Best Hotels in Lisbon, where you can get a luxury 5-star accomodation for a price of a 3-star average hotel in any other european capital:
1) Pestana Palace Lisbon
This hotel is not exactly in downtown, but not far away. This 19th Century Palace is considered a National Monument and one of the most luxury hotels in Lisbon, with 193 rooms and 4 royal suites. The unbelieble cheap prices start at 150EUR per night
