Lisbonaire Lisbon, Portugal


Tucked away, yet centrally located in downtown Lisbon
Herb garden in the rooftop terrace
Quirky, bespoke details available in the gift shop



In this vibrant port city of cafes, hills, and pulsating Fado music, it's only fitting that a property who adopted its title also reflect its colorful dynamic. Enter Lisbonaire: a swinging '60s building refashioned in 2011 under the aesthetic helm of native design firm Experimenta, whose artistic mentality is playfully evident throughout, from the swaths of type-set poetry adorning the ceilings down to the synthetic polishings upon bespoke furniture from visionary duo Pedrita.

Queen rooms start at $168

Intoxicated by the room scents filling the rooms? The customized fragrances, designed by Portuguese brand Castelbel, are available for takeaway in the gift shop.


  • Vibe and atmosphere

    There's a sense of unforced relaxation here, as many guests choose to spend extended periods of time within Lisbonaire's welcoming walls. After long days, guests toast to the city quite literally at their doorstep with BYO port in the charming rooftop terrace.
  • Overall look and feel of the rooms

    Each of the 19 rooms exudes its own unique personality, with whimsical elements scattered throughout: whirls of color and bold scrawls, complimentary copies of art magazines. True to apartment-style, each features its own fully-equipped kitchenette, including a dishwasher and fridge, and additional amenities include LCD televisions and washing machines.
  • Service style

    Staffers embody a decidedly affable ethos; they'll happily recommend their favorite cobblestoned corner, or help you navigate the hotel's own guest-friendly iPhone app. The hotel also works with external services to arrange out-of-city tours—enquire at the front desk to customize your own tour to sun-drenched Nazaré or fairytale-worthy Sintra.
  • Preferred room type

    Larger groups should request a split-level room—Apartment C boasts dual sofa beds in the living room, ideal for an impromptu social convening.
  • Unique property features

    Snooker, anyone? It's a question you're likely to hear if you pop by the Lisbonaire's basement, which has been converted into a sociable "cave" for its guests. The hip space is outfitted with a book and video library, movie lounge, and ongoing exhibitions that frequently chronicle regional architecture and culture.
