Earlier this year we spent 3 weeks traveling through Portugal to see more of this beautiful country. Our adventure started upon arrival in Lisbon after 16 hours of travel, so we were quite tired. Luckily for us, our first night in the country was spent in luxury at Hotel White Lisboa! Not specifically a budget hotel but definitely more affordable than the bigger chain hotels, Hotel White Lisboa is perfect for couples or business travelers.
About Hotel White Lisboa
Hotel White Lisboa is a rather trendy 4-star boutique hotel located in one of the best areas in Lisbon. Although the hotel has limited space, the decor and ambiance make up for this. The name “White” was chosen as the basis of the hotel’s identity, as it is a bright spot within the bustling city. The name is also a tribute to the bright light that is synonymous with Lisbon which is almost always sunny. There are 41 rooms, four duplex suites, a rooftop pool, and a terrace with stunning views.
Our check-in went smoothly and the staff members were all super friendly and accommodating. I must mention that both driving and parking in Lisbon can be overwhelming especially in a busy area like Saldanha where the hotel is situated. Therefore, speak to reception in advance about where to go for parking. There is underground parking available to Hotel White Lisboa guests in the building across the street for a minimal rate when compared to other places in the city.
Rooms at Hotel White Lisboa are specifically designed for a relaxing and comfortable experience. There is a peaceful energy that permeates the entire building and separates you from the busy chaos of the city outside. All rooms have been decorated stylishly with a white palette and a few splashes of neutral grey color, for a welcoming environment. Each room or suite is spacious with large beds, working spaces, TVs, and en-suite bathrooms.
We stayed in the gorgeous Sky Duplex Suite which is located on the top floor. The double-story suite had a living area downstairs with a couch, coffee table, tea & coffee making station, TV and a balcony. Waiting for us when we arrived was a plate with 2 delicious “pastel de natas” – the first of many for this trip. The spiral staircase took us up to the top floor and bedroom. The spacious bedroom also had a table, a working desk, TV, en-suite bathroom with amenities and 2 balconies. As we were so tired after our journey we indulged in a nap on the large, comfortable bed before heading out to explore.
Amenities & Facilities
The best feature by far of Hotel White Lisboa is the rooftop terrace which has a swimming pool that overlooks the city. Breakfast is served buffet style in the hotel lounge each morning. Complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel. Each room is stocked with all the basic necessities including toiletries, slippers and more in the bathroom. Besides this daily cleaning and room service is also available.
Located within the city center in the neighborhood of Saldanha, Hotel White Lisboa is conveniently situated to let you make the most of your time in Lisbon. Easy to find and get to, as it is on the main avenue that stretches from the airport all the way to downtown Lisbon. The area is lively and very vibey and there is always lots going on. It is close to attractions, restaurants, bars and most importantly the metro station. For more information on Lisbon check out my Travel Guides!
