There is a wealth of places to stay in Lisbon and each budget is catered for. Whether you want to camp, stay in a hostel, a youth hostel, or live it up in a hotel – there is something to suit you an your budget – hotels for peanuts or ponsy boutique hotel.
For cheaper accommodation you can take advantage of the Orbitur Campsite Lisboa which is on an easy bus route and means you can get out of town a little. It’s a really beautiful and spacious campsite with a massive pool and onsite café and supermarket. Buses to and from the campsite are very regular, reliable and cheap. A taxi from the campsite to the centre of the city costs less than ten euros.
For guesthouse accommodation head towards Avenida a Liberdade and have a meander around the streets that run parallel. Both Rua das Protas e Santo Antao and Rua da Gloria have guesthouses.
Chiado and Alfama are the obvious choices for most tourists as they are central and atmospheric although the rooms in the former might be noisy and prices in both areas will tend to be higher than elsewhere.
If you are into hostels or are on a tight budget that forces you to be into hostels, then luckily there are some particularly splendid options in Lisbon. Home Hostels are generally very professionally run, friendly and colourful places with great communal areas and a wealth of local information.
There are two official youth hostels also, with a choice of either centrally located or Parque das Nacoes.
If your budget allows, then hotels are generally on the outskirts of the main touristic areas with many options on Rua da Liberdade, around Parque Eduardo VII and with a collection of hotels of all budgets in Lapa in the suburbs but with good links to the touristic centre.
Prices for every budget from camping and hostelling through to five-star boutique hotels will tend to vary from season to season, with the highest prices being charged during the summer months (particularly July to September) and around Christmas and New Year.
