Lisbon is a hidden gem of a city, uniquely spread over seven hills that overlook the Tegus River. Here, magnificent monasteries and charming castles sit alongside modern museums and cutting-edge art, while a lively shopping scene and vibrant nightlife complete the urban tableau. All this is intersected by tramways, cobblestone lanes and tree-lined streets, making for an attractive and captivating destination that’s quickly topping traveler’s wish lists.
Among the busy streets and charming buildings, you’ll find the four-star Vincci Baixa. Designed to blend old with new, the classic, traditional facade belies a stylish, contemporary interior, accented by pieces of the original architecture. Striking archways dress the entrance to the lounge bar, adding character to the understated décor. Its distinctive aesthetic extends to the bedrooms – cozy spaces perfect for relaxing in after a day of sightseeing or shopping. And don’t forget about the hotel’s restaurant, where you can sample tapas, petiscos and other gourmet fare paired with a glass of wine.
Good to know
Please note that a city tax of €1 per person, per night is payable directly to the hotel.
Modern design meets boutique character in the hotel’s airy rooms. The clean lines and chic, neutral color scheme add to the sense of space and tranquility. Hidden behind a sleek floor-to-ceiling mirror is the bathroom, complete with a large shower space and dressed with forest-green tiles. The bright space, coupled with a luxurious bed, is just the antidote for a long day out exploring the city.
The hotel’s restaurant offers a buffet breakfast every morning and is otherwise open to offer you a taste of local specialties. The restaurant serves up Portuguese petisco snacks and Spanish tapas, perfect for light bites and sharing. If you’re looking for a drink, the hotel’s lounge bar is the place to go. Enjoy the comfort of the plush seats in this cozy and inviting space while sipping on some of the finest wines and spirits.
Vincci Baixa is situated in the best part of the city. There are plenty of historical buildings to explore and lovely restaurants to discover around the area. Meanwhile, just a few steps away lies Rua Augusta, Lisbon’s central shopping and entertainment street.
How to Get There
Stayed here as a couple for 3 nights in December 2018.
We arrived well before check-in time but were welcomed by the reception staff and given a room immediately. Our room was quite narrow but no smaller than the average city centre hotel room and we had a lovely view from the window out on to the main street. It was clean and comfortable which is all we require.
The location is the best selling point of this hotel, 10 minutes from the main square of Rossio but literally across from the beautiful Commercial Square. Everywhere felt like it was on our doorstep (if up a hill!)
Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Lisbon for a short city break.
Hotel is in a great area just 2 blocks from the river and center square and within 3 blocks away from center. Awesome location, excellent breakfast but very, very small rooms . But anyhow I will still recommend this hotel.
This hotel has a very good location, a really nice breakfast and very decent prices. Personally I would have preferred a slightly bigger room, but you get what you pay for. I could have gotten bigger rooms and a gym if I had wanted to spend Euro 300 a night. For the price, I thought this hotel was perfect - and the staff were extremely nice.
Stayed here for a city break. Modern /contemporary style hotel that is close to the centre and the promenade. Room was very comfortable and quiet despite being on the first floor and close to the lift.
The rooms are best described as "compact" but fine for a short break. We stayed on a room only basis as there are plenty of cafe's close by where you can get a local breakfast.
Staff were very helpful in providing local travel advice and tourist information.
The rooms are small but very clean and quiet. The location is perfect for getting anywhere around the restaurant district, the Cathedral, the Commercial square, tour buses, trolley, churches, you name it. Th staff was delightful
