The best areas to stay in Lisbon

There are many neighborhoods in Lisbon where is absolutely ok to look for accommodation. Each with its own personality and history. On the video below you will find an analysis of what we consider to be the first neighborhoods to stay in Lisbon for a first-time visitor to the city.

The video also contains a word of warning about two specific neighborhoods, Belém and the Parque das Nações. They are wonderful and you should definitely visit them during your stay in Lisbon, but they are far removed from the centre of the city and we would not recommend you to look for accommodation in either of them.

Going beyond the best areas to stay, we have selected 30 hotels recommendations we have decided to group in three basic categories:
