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
We stayed for 6 nights and the location was perfect to reach the main sights, and enabled us to walk to the various stations we needed to get to in order to catch the train to Sintra, Cascais, and even Porto ( although with our huge suitcases, we opted for a taxi). Access to buses, trams and the Metro was super easy. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was a bit small although given the location this was expected. Housekeeping could be improved in that the table out on the balcony had not been cleaned prior to our arrival and was filthy, and during our week stay, although the bed was nicely made and the towels replaced, the floor of the room never got properly vacuumed or mopped that by the last day of our stay, even using the slippers provided for, we were making black marks from the dust and grime on the floor when walking into and out of the bathroom.
We had a weeks holiday in Lisbon, and stayed in the Vincci Baixa. Reception staff were very polite, friendly and helpful at all times. We had a problem with the tap on our washbasin, which was fixed promptly. Maria in particular on reception was lovely and couldn't have been more helpful.
Recently stayed at the Vincci Baixa which we found to be an excellent choice both accommodation and location. Yes the rooms were smaller than what we would’ve liked but well appointed, clean and comfortable and really not an issue. We found the staff helpful and accommodating, the breakfasts great and the lounge and bar area a great place for that afternoon drink. The key to any hotel when travelling is the location and the Vincci Baixa ticked all the boxes for us. It was a five minute walk to the harbour front, and an equally short distance to an abundance of excellent restaurants.
I stayed there a month ago for two nights, and I have to say that the location is one of the best features of the hotel. However, the staff are also a positive side to mention! The receptionists who checked me in and out where very kind, friendly, knowledgeable and they made me feel like home. The balconies are very cute and to me they were the highlight of the otherwise comfy but small room. The windows are very good because the World Cup was being shown in the square nearby, but with the closed balcony door, you had no idea anything was happening. Comfortable bed and normal minibar amenities. I would stay there again. Thank you for your kind welcome!
Wonderful room and hotel. Fully air-conditioned, Nice perks with the room, we were treated with iced tea, cookies and candy when we got to the room, and a complimentary bottle of wine if we purchased dinner at the hotel. Bathrobe and slippers were included with the room. Every afternoon there was Moscatel wine with pastel de nata at the desk as we entered from a long day of sightseeing. Breakfast was a fabulous spread.
The staff was very helpful as well. Located one block from Praca do Commercio and a couple of blocks from Rua Augusta.
