For a view that you'll never forget, book a room at this hilltop albergaria
in the Graça neighborhood and enjoy breakfast on the terrace each morning.

grueling climb up cobblestoned streets and stone staircases when you return from
your day's outings.

As its name suggests, the highly-rated Hotel Botánico is near the Botanical

TV, private parking, and business amenities are strictly 20th Century. The hotel
is part of the Vip Inn group.

Marques de Pombal Square. (Its location isn't ideal for sightseeing on foot, but
on the plus side, it has an outdoor swimming pool and is near a Metro stop.)
