FB Instagram Youtube The Best Lisbon Boutique Hotels – Making Lisbon Stay special!

The Portuguese capital has the unique magic of cities by the ocean, so boutique hotels in Lisbon are downright enchanting. We stayed in two gorgeous boutique hotels, both amazing but yet very different.

Hello Lisbon!

Behind Marquis of Pombal: H10 Duque de Loulé

In keeping with the H10 concept, H10 Duque de Loulé shines among Lisbon hotels. A design marvel hidden from plain sight that will steal your heart the minute you enter!

Design & Boutique Feeling

This gem among boutique hotels in Lisbon has luxury down to an art. With a beautiful 18th century façade, everything inside is totally new. The décor mixes modern functional with Portuguese traditional. The stylish lobby combines B&W floors with beautiful antique furniture!

Room & Other Facilities

Very Mediterranean vibe, with plenty of whites and blues but with a great mix of design and elements. The rooms are big, comfy and cozy. Some rooms have large windows overlooking the city, a perfect feature for places to stay in Lisbon!

The room was full of light from both the windows and the bright décor. Also really loved the very modern B&W bathroom and the big comfortable bed!

Food & Drinks

On the first flor you can find Azul e Branco Restaurant, a cozy, bistro-like eatery. It’s all whites and blues, with lovely wood elements. The B&W floor tiles and broad spaces are totally entrancing. Style is also important on the breakfast menu, which is delicious and beautifully presented. A classy gem among Lisbon hotels!

Setting this apart from other boutique hotels in Lisbon is the rooftop,  where you can see all 5 hills by the sea. Limão Rooftop Bar is the perfect spot to catch a sunset facing the city’s colorful houses.

Love the design of this roof top!


While friendly and professional service and the staff really made everything to make our stay perfect. Still a hotel chain, so the truly personal touch isn’t really there but this is just a minor remark!


The hotel’s only relative downside. Most places to stay in Lisbon are between Bairro Alto and Alfama, but H10 Duque de Loulé is located a bit farther up in the city, close to Marquise of Pompal Square. However, it is just a 20-30 minute walk down to Bairro Alto,  and taxis are easy to find.

Memmo Alfama Lisbon

An oasis of design in the busy Lisbon old town, Memmo Alfama Lisbon is a hidden gem. A truly cool place that makes its mark among boutique hotels in Lisbon! Located on a small hidden street of the busy Alfama streets, this gem will make you feel at home at ones!

Design & Boutique Feeling

A boutique superstar. With its cool, modern furniture and earthy palette, it feels more like an artist’s home. It’s a bit Scandinavian in its simplicity.

One of the first boutique places to stay in Lisbon, it’s cozy and home-like. Loved the living room with a library, couches and huge dining table, where breakfast is served.

Room & Other Facilities

The rooms are modern with a  simle décor, ones again a bit Scandinavian. Ask for a room with a view and wake up with the sea! However, as is the case with some boutique hotels, the rooms were a bit small for my taste and it was difficult to store 2 bags here in a good way! But when in Lisbon and in this hotel, you do not spend much time in the rooms…

The other facilities of the hotels are top notch and the roof top offers another breathtaking view of Lisbon. Here you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, relax in a sun bed or the lounge sofa and if the rain comes or you feel cold, move into the cozy upper floor living room with glass door, and you will still be able to enjoy the view.

Food & Drinks

Loved the small but sturdy breakfast buffet, and also the evening snacks! Magic happens at the terrace. Have some afternoon drinks while chilling at the infinity pool and soaking up the sun. A must visit even if you do not live here but remember to book in advance!

A bit early for breakfast!


One thing that sets this above Lisbon hotels is its professional and personal service. The girl at the front desk makes you feel at home upon entering. This hotel has the true authentic service that you can only get in small places like this!

A Great Welcome


Perfect. It’s in the middle of everything, but hidden enough in a backyard to be somewhat secret. Landmarks are a few minutes away on foot!

Check in at any of these two hotels or like we did… both and you will have and you will give your Lisbon stay a true silver lining!
