Lisboa Carmo Hotel Review

This low-key boutique charmer, located in the upscale, hilltop Chiado neighborhood, features a historic setting and Lisbon city views, plus a team that endeavors to be "hotel tailors" who "fit" each guest with a unique experience. The five-story, 45-room property sits on Carmo Square, where, in 1974, the then-premier's resignation brought decades of dictatorship to an end. Rooms have square, Old Town, or Tagus River views, along with a bright, simple decor and amenities like free Wi-Fi, LED TVs, pillow menus, and satin-cotton bedding. A couple of single and family-sized rooms are available (the former are the most affordable), and some of the top categories have freestanding tubs. Designed to evoke a traditional tavern, with plenty of square-side seating, the Maria do Carmo restaurant highlights Portuguese wines, and serves a tapas menu heavy on regional products like olive oil, stuffed sausage, smoked ham, and artisanal cheeses.
