Top 25 Boutique Hotels in Lisbon


A boutique hotel is a small hotel with few rooms and a unique or intimate atmosphere, usually with a themed décor. Many are also considered "design hotels" but are not necessarily luxury accommodation. Many of the centuries-old buildings in Lisbon's historic neighborhoods have been renovated to become boutique hotels in the last few years, and now combine traditional and modern design. There's a large variety to choose from, so here's the list of the 25 that stand out.
