Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.

  • Costa de caprica is a nice beach With plenty of eats near by head south in Portugal for the better beaches..  more »
  • After Brighton (UK) beach, this is probably the worst beach I've ever seen. If you are into surfing, then you'd love this place. If you are not into swimming in -10 degrees water, then stay away.  more »
