Try Hotel da Lapa.
Tel int.prefix + 351 + 21 395 00 05

This is in the ambassies area of Lisbon. Very selective atmosphere.

If you wish to move a little outside Lisbon, a good alternative is the Hotel Albatroz in Cascais, with telephone referred in another post.

There are lots of things to see outside Lisbon, these could be a bunch of them:

-Queluz Royal Palace

-Mafra huge monastery ( The portuguese Escorial, beautiful library )

-Sintra palaces(Da Pena, National )

-Viewpoints in Sintra (Castelo dos Mouros, Peninha. )

-Cabo de Roca rugged cliffs and Guincho wild beach.

There is also a palace just north of Lisbon called Dos Marqueses de Fronteira, where there are notable examples of blue tiles.

Further northwards: Obidos, Nazare, Tomar, Batalha, Alcobaša. Sto Antonio Cave, etc

Highly recommend Britania Hotel in Lisbon.
In Sintra, Pena Palace was a knock out. Neat little town. We even 2 adults even enjoyed the children's museum in town (includes Nazi WWII toys).
