Lisbon’s 4-star LX Boutique Hotel is centrally located, in the city’s Baixa district, a couple of minute’s walk from the Cais do Sodré railway and ferry station.
Even if you don’t enjoy walking, it’s barely worth jumping in a taxi to reach the city centre’s sights or to return after a night out in the busy bars of Bairro Alto.
The hotel has 44 rooms, sized from 15 to 22 square metres, and one suite, of 30 square metres. The suite’s windows provide a panoramic view over the river Tagus and the 25 April suspension bridge.
Boutique Hotel in Lisbon
The rooms are spread over five floors, themed after aspects defining Lisbon’s culture and character; Fado, Bairro Alto, Tejo, Pessoa and the sete Colinas (seven hills).
The rooms that I viewed were bright and comfortable, using whites and contemporary, neutral colours to enhance the sense of space. You’ll find a safe and plasma television in each room, and there’s also a sound system with iPod/iPhone docking station.
The receptionists speak flawless English and are helpful in offering tips as to nearby attractions. They made me wish my Portuguese was anywhere near as good as their English.
Lisbon restaurants and bars
There’s no shortage of decent places to eat and drink within a ten minute walk of the hotel. That said, if you don’t feel like heading out there’s an adjacent sushi bar, accessible through the hotel.
In case you’re wondering, the “LX” in the hotel name is said to suggest this is an ideal place to gain a ‘Lisbon Xperience.’
The LX Boutique Hotel is at Rua do Alcerim 12, 1200-017 Lisbon, Portugal. Find out more by calling +351 (0) 21 347 4394 or viewing the hotel website.
