A boutique gem near the buzzing Bairro Alto, with welcome treats and an optional golf experience

The Lowdown

The vibrant, characterful Portuguese capital of Lisbon never fails to delight – from the maze of cobbled streets and pastel-coloured buildings in the old city, to the hilly charms of Bairro Alto and watery wonders of the River Tagus estuary. Perfectly positioned for access to all this and more, Lisboa Carmo Hotel is a boutique gem housed in a rebuilt historic building, whose classic exterior belies the sleek contemporary decor within. A polished lobby gives way to an equally attractive restaurant, where you’ll be treated to a splendid buffet breakfast spread which will more than set you up for a day out and about.
Ascend up a funicular into Bairro Alto for great views over the rooftops to get your bearings, or take one of the century-old trams which will whisk you on a circular route. Get blissfully lost amid the warren of alleys in the old city, discovering myriad bars and cafes along the way. Marvel at all the comings and goings on the nearby River Tagus, from the impressive Belem waterfront with its lavish monastery and grand statues gazing across the water. Return to freshen up and refuel with a tasty dinner in the hotel restaurant, before setting forth once more to explore to Lisbon’s legendary nightlife. Lisboa Carmo Hotel effortlessly received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

In the middle of the hippest part of Lisbon

Lovely little hotel with excellent service. Just around the corner from the most desireable cafes, bars and restaurants. Helpful with parking, arranging tours etc. Loved the fresh fruit bowl in the lobby.

Great Hotel in a perfect location!

We were very happy with our choice of the Carmo Hotel! The location, decor and most especially the staff are outstanding- A special shoutout to Sandro for his hospitality! The breakfast was delicious, the bed was comfortable and the Fado show was excellent!
Highly recommend this hotel!

Great base for exploring this wonderful city

We had three nights at the Lisboa Carmo for a city break and would thoroughly recommend it as a base. It's set on the corner of a historic square with fabulous restaurants and bars within a stone's throw, and a sort walk from the metro and tram systems. The staff were unfailingly helpful with all our enquiries and the room was spacious and comfortable with a small balcony looking out to the castle and the narrow streets that surround the hotel. It has a local rather than a cosmopolitan feel which was exactly what we were seeking but travellers looking for the kind of experience provided by the big international chains might want to research other options. We choose to walk and use public transport on trips like this and hence the location and district were ideal: travellers that prefer car hire should note that the Lisboa Carmo is surrounded by narrow streets and is set on one of the many hills that are a feature of Lisbon - navigation and parking might therefore present some interesting challenges
