Top 5 Lisbon Guesthouses

Lisbon, PortugalCombining centuries of history with a young, lively atmosphere, Lisbon is a vibrant and modern capital with a small-town feel. Bright yellow trams run up and down cobbled streets which are sprinkled liberally with an eclectic mix of cathedrals, monasteries, museums, shops, bars and restaurants.

A position on the banks of the River Tagus, which opens out onto the Atlantic Ocean, made Lisbon a key trading post for millennia. Nowadays, that same location makes for an ideal holiday destination, with excellent beaches, picturesque fishing villages and beautiful hillside scenery waiting just outside the city.

For a small city, Lisbon has an enjoyably diverse mix of neighbourhoods; every visitor to Portugal’s capital will find something to please them, be it dancing the night away in the lively bars of Bairro Alto, splashing the cash in sophisticated Chiado or simply wandering the charming backstreets of Alfama, stumbling across a leafy square and enjoying a glass of wine while soaking up the atmosphere of traditional Portugal.

Looking for Lisbon accommodation? Here are’s top 5 recommendations for Lisbon guesthouses…
