Best Hotels to Stay in Chiado, Lisbon

When people think of Portugal, they usually think of sun, sand, and sipping wine by the beach. And then, there are the main cities, Lisbon and Porto, which have been getting much attention from tourists in the last few years.

But if you are heading to Lisbon and fancy staying in the heart of the city, you might end up in Chiado.

If so, where should you be staying in?

In this post, we’ll show you some of our top choice hotels in Chiado, Lisbon. These are not only the best hotels in Chiado, but they’re also within some of the best city hotels in all of Europe.

Hotel Borges Chiado

  • One of the older buildings in Chiado.
  • Impressive breakfast room.
  • View of Largo do Chiado.
  • Small price to pay to be in the center of the city.

From the outside you can see that it is one of the oldest buildings in Chiado, but inside it leaves you open-mouthed. The breakfast room is impressive, with gilded ceilings, large chandeliers, and a classic, almost monastic atmosphere that, now that we think about it, doesn’t match well with the image we kept of the hotel’s entrance. The view, for those who choose one of the front rooms, is nothing less than Largo do Chiado, from the Warehouses to Praça Luís de Camões. It is not an extended panorama, which it is not, but it is a small price to pay to be installed in the center of the center.

Lisbon Carmo Hotel

  • The rooms, like the rest, follow the premise of “more is less”.
  • Friendly service and almost family atmosphere.
  • Warm welcome.

Surprisingly genuine in the way it presents itself to those who enter, it is contemporary, refined, and informal, with friendly service and an almost family atmosphere that welcomes you as if you were in a friend’s house. The rooms, like the rest of the hotel, follow the premise of more is less and only those on the top floor have an antique foot tub at the end of the bed and a view of the Tagus River – and these are the ones you should keep an eye on. If that is not possible, any of the balconies offer a nice postcard of Largo do Carmo.

9 Hotel Mercy

  • Calmness to one of the most bustling streets in Lisbon.
  • 47 rooms, some with a balcony or patio.
  • Ideally with a glass of wine and sunglasses.

Located between Chiado and Bairro Alto, it manages to be sunny and somber at the same time, classic and contemporary, without ever losing its neighborhood charm. It sounds like a complicated mix, but it isn’t. In the four-star 9 Hotel Mercy, the idea was only one: to bring a little bit of calm to one of the busiest streets in Lisbon. The hotel has 47 rooms, some with a balcony and patio, but it is only from the sixth floor terrace that you can see Lisbon all the way to the river, ideally with a glass of wine in hand and sunglasses at your side. 

Hotel do Chiado

  • Five minutes away from practically everything.
  • Unbeatable location for discovering the City.
  • Lisbon begs to be admired.
  • Perfect view point from the rooftop bar.
  • Worthwhile experience.

Five minutes away from practically everything you need to know in the historic center, with an unbeatable location for discovering the city. Lisbon begs to be admired, and the Hotel do Chiado is the perfect viewpoint to enjoy the panorama without interruptions – even more so from the terrace of the Entretanto Rooftop Bar, from where you can see everything up to the Arrábida Mountain on the other bank. On the top floor of the hotel, the space is exclusively dedicated to gastronomy, with the Mezzanine Castelo doing justice to the name and serving meals (including breakfast) with the walls in the background.

Martinhal Lisbon Chiado Family Suites

Hidden in a narrow street in Chiado, it is in the center of the itinerary of nightlife and the historic center and just a short walk (downhill) from  Mercado da Ribeira, where the best restaurants of the city’s chefs meet, it is a great starting point to discover Lisbon without having to make big plans – even if you come with your family.
