Stay at one of our
hotels to discover "the city of seven hills," which captivates with its pure Atlantic light, seafaring past and genuinely friendly locals. Get the most out of the Portuguese capital by strolling its streets - from Baixa's grand squares to the Alfama's alleys, where soulful fado music drifts from open windows.
Our hotels in makes it easy to get out and explore. Take in the major landmarks on the bee-yellow tram 28, which has been rattling through 's narrow streets for more than a century. It grinds to a halt near hilltop , with fine views over the city's red rooftops to the River Tagus. Our hotels are near the cavernous Oceanarium, where kids love the somersaulting sea otters. Belém is where gt Portuguese navigators set sail in the 16th century. The riches they brought back from distant lands built the UNESCO-listed Jerónimos Monastery, a fantasy of twirling turrets and web-like vaulting.
Your comfortable hotel is just a speedy Metro ride from Baixa's specialty shops, where you can pick up gifts from handpainted azulejos (tiles) to a decent bottle of Tawny port. Revive over a bica (espresso) and cinnamon-dusted custard tarts on the terrace of one of 's Art Nouveau patisseries. At our hotels in you're never far from Baixa's good-value restaurants, where grilled sardines are served with citrusy vinho verde wine. Party on in the Bairro Alto's bars, or book a table in one of Alfama's vaulted restaurants, where fado singers serenade you with songs of lost love and destiny.
Book a room at one of our Holiday Inn® hotels in February for samba-infused parades at carnival, or in June for the colorful street parties of the Festivals of the Popular Saints.
