Lx Boutique

Why it made the list

A funky four-star at the heart of downtown Lisbon, LX Boutique is within easy reach of pretty much everything you might want to see in this scenic city. (LX is street-savvy shorthand for Lisbon...).

The hotel also faces the transport hub that is is the starting point for excursions to historic Belem and out to Cascais and Estoril. Party people can join the hipster hordes at Rua do Carvalho 'Pink Street', the nearby nightlife strip that has become Lisbon's hottest nocturnal hangout.
