Holidays in Lisbon will be successful, provided that you arrange a comfortable accommodation at a good price in the city center or on its outskirts in one of the popular districts. Everything depends on individual needs and preferences.
To help you choose the right place and location to look around for a hotel or apartment, we have some important information for you about where to book your stay in Lisbon.
Hotels and apartments in Lisbon
Accommodation in Lisbon: hotels, hostels and apartments
As befits any European capital, Lisbon has a wide base and accommodation offer. You will find expensive and luxurious four- and five-star hotels and completely inexpensive hostels. The latter, especially located in the center of Lisbon, do not enjoy a very good reputation. You can find, for example, poor quality premises, so it’s better to read reviews before booking on well-known portals with accommodation.
In addition to typical hotel accommodation, you can also rent private accommodation – rooms, apartments in the center of Lisbon and entire apartments. Most of them offer a European level of equipment, there are also fresh candles decorated with a modern designer touch.
In which area of Lisbon is best to book and look for accommodation?
Most people recommend the Baixa district. It is a tourist part of Lisbon, perfectly connected to the rest of the capital. A good place as a starting point for sightseeing, there are many hotels, apartments and guesthouses here. This is where the Pestana CR7 Lisboa hotel is located, signed by Cristiano Ronaldo.
The average price for 1 room for 2 adults in hotels in the Baixa district is 60 to 120 euro. As for apartments, it will be from 70 to 160 euro. You can find hostels in this district from 35 to 90 euro.
Bairro Alto, which is focused on night life, almost never falls asleep. An ideal place for party people and people hungry for entertainment.
It should be borne in mind, however, that it is not quiet here.
The average price for 1 room for 2 adults in hotels in the Bairro Alto district is about 160 euro. The apartment is from 70 to 140 euro and accommodation in a hostel in this district costs 16-60 euro.
If you are looking for a higher standard hostel, you have to check around Chiado with fashionable hotels and restaurants or at Avenida da Liberdade or near the Park of Nations at Oriente station, which is probably the most fashionable and modern part of Lisbon.
The average price for 1 room for 2 adults in hotels in the Chiada district will be similar to those in the Baixa district.
In turn, the Alfama district, which is actually very climatic and often recommended as a good starting point to explore, not only is it located on the hills, its narrow, dimly lit streets can be unsafe at night.
The average price for 1 room for 2 adults in hotels in the Alfama district is 90 euro, similar to hostels and apartments in this district.
Accommodation prices in Lisbon
As you can see, the price of accommodation in Lisbon depends on two main factors. The first is the district and the distance from the center and the main tourist attractions of Lisbon and the second factor determining the price of accommodation is the type of accommodation you choose. You can choose mainly hotels (the most expensive option), hostels (the cheapest option) and apartments.
The price is also influenced by the equipment of the premises, but when it comes to both apartments and hotels in Lisbon, the standard is rather high. The only thing you need to watch out for hostels, as we mentioned earlier.
It’s worth reading the reviews! Remember that.
Overnight at Lisbon airport
If you plan to get to or from Lisbon by plane, it is worth including accommodation near the airport. The choice of all kinds of hotels near the airport itself is great.
The price of accommodation in the area and near the Lisbon airport for 1 room for 2 adults ranges from 45 to 90 euro depending on the hotel standard you choose. Of course, you will also find premises for more than 200 euro per night … if you can afford them 🙂
Are cheap accommodation in Lisbon at all possible? It depends.
First, answer the question what does “cheap accommodation” mean to whom. For one it will be 30 euro and for another 160 euro per night. When choosing hostels, you have to consider a much lower standard. Heading towards hotels and apartments you are raising the standard of accommodation for the price of… price.
For bargain hunters certainly nothing is impossible so they also have the chance to get one of the many price promotions in Lisbon hostels.
