In 2019, TimeOut.com declared “The multicultural Lisbon parish of Arroios is the world’s coolest neighbourhood right now.” Known for its art galleries, hip and traditional restaurants mashed side-by-side and historical institutions like the neoclassical São Lázaro Municipal Library, it’s right outside your front door.
Once you’ve stepped out, you’re also near Figueira Square and a 10-minute walk to downtown Lisbon. If you walk five minutes uphill on Sao Lázaro street, you’ll reach Campo Mártires da Patria, which used to be a bullfighting area and is now quite the opposite: a quiet park, save for the chirps of birds and chickens. You might even spot a roaming peacock. While you’re here, stop into Gelato Mu for a creamy treat.
Downhill from the hotel and a short walk away is Vida Portuguesa, featuring the best Portuguese arts and crafts.
Zé da Mouraria is another wonderful neighborhood to stroll through. Replete with tradition and authenticity, it’s full of locals.
Meanwhile, various vantages around the city compete for the best miradouro (viewpoint). A lesser-known favorite is Jardim do Torel in central Lisbon. Take the Lavra funicular to Santana hill’s top and catch glimpses of Avenida Liberdade, the city center and river.
