Portugal's rugged coast, fishing villages, and beautiful countryside offer
ample attractions for an enjoyable vacation, and travelers will find an abundance
of options for Portugal hotels. Whether exploring historic Lisbon
or soaking up sun at the beaches in Lagos, hotels
in Portugal can be found for both big spenders in search of elegant Portugal
accommodation and budget travelers in search of cheap hotels in Portugal and
simpler places to rest their heads.
In the capital port city of Lisbon, visitors can choose from hotels, hostels, and guesthouses. In general, Lisbon Portugal accommodation isn't as pricey as in other major European cities. For cheap Lisbon hotels, look for deals on the Internet. Or, for a rock-bottom deal, book a few nights at one of the Lisbon hostels, which are a very affordable way to room. Look for hotels in a centrally located neighborhood—unlike some other major European cities, you won't have to pay much more for hotels in Portugal in such neighborhoods than for those in less-convenient ones. The centrally located Hotel Borges in the historical district is a good pick. For a bargain, try a budget hotel like the Hotel Miraparque. For a luxurious experience, stay at the Palacio Belmonte Hotel, an exclusive renovated palace.
Northwest of Lisbon is Fatima, well-known for the Basilica of Fatima. Most visit Fatima briefly, but if you want to stay the night there are plenty of clean and hospitable hotels to stay at, and many are very close to the Basilica. The Best Western Hotel Dom Goncalo, Hotel Cinquentenario, and Fatima Hotel are all centrally located and suit many travelers seeking hotels in Portugal in that area.
If you visit the Algarve region you'll find that Algarve hotels range from grand luxury hotels, beachfront hotels, and beautiful villas. The Algarve region includes several popular destinations, including Albufeira, Faro, and Lagos. In Faro, Algarve's capital, travelers should have no trouble finding lodging that suits them among these Portugal hotels, from the Hotel Monaco near the beach, to the quiet and centrally located Casa de Estoi, to the luxurious Monte Do Casal.
Albufeira is another city in the Algarve region, and a major tourist holiday
hotspot, meaning there are plenty of options for those seeking lodging in Portugal.
Golfers may want to book a hotel
near a golf course—consider the Sheraton Algarve, which has a 9-hole course.
For rejuvenation and relaxation, look for Portugal accommodation here with spa
services such as the Real Bellavista Hotel and Spa. Of course, many people come
to Albufeira specifically for sun-time on the beautiful beaches, so why not
book a hotel as close to the sand as possible? There are many beachfront hotels
in Portugal and in Albufeira specifically, including the Falesia Hotel.
Once the capital of the Algarve region, Lagos had a past life as a vibrant
fishing village. The sea still plays a major role in the city's vitality today
as scores of visitors flock to the city to enjoy sun and water at Lagos beaches
and to go fishing, swimming, and diving. While some Portugal
hotels in Lagos are practically on the beach, such as the Solar de Mos hotel,
others are a walk or an easy shuttle ride away. The options for Portugal accommodation
in Lagos include the Protea Hotel Victoria Island and the Tivoli.
