LX Boutique Hotel
Just the fact that the LX Boutique hotel is located only a few minutes’ walk away from Lisbon’s emblematic Bairro Alto and Chiado districts, makes it a pretty good base for a Lisbon city break. That it is actually even nearer to the water’s edge by the river Tagus is an added bonus (from here you can easily get the train to visit Belem and the Cascais coast). You get the drift, it is well placed to help you give a feel of much of Lisbon’s culture and traditions, restaurants, bars and clubs (loads around, basically for all types and tastes), notwithstanding the fact that the hotel itself, as the name implies is design orientated.
Now that we’ve mentioned design, each of its five floors is dedicated to a theme, so you get the Tejo (Tagus) floor, the Bairro Alto floor, 7 Colinas (7 Hills) floor, Pessoa floor (Fernando Pessoa - Portugal’s greatest poet who frequented the area) and the Fado floor and the design does in accordance with the them. But what do they all have in common? All themes are dedicated to Lisbon itself – even the name LX is the short hand for Lisbon in Portugal.
Room types available:
Standard Double room: 14 m2 - Smallest of the room types and ideal for those who do not need that much space.
Superior Double Room: As the name implies, they are larger than the standard rooms (18m2) and are extremely comfortable and elegant in that simple vanguard design way with beautiful views.
Suite with river view: The crown in the jewels. A 45 m2 suite with superb views over the Tagus river. So all in all, the LX Boutique is a fantastic addition to Lisbon’s increasingly sophisticated portfolio of hotels, particularly so as staff are unfailingly courteous and professional.
As a final word of caution, we must mention that next door to the hotel there is a dilapidated building waiting to be done up. It may be off putting to some, but in our opinion, don’t let that put you off.
Also, it does not have a parking area, but seriously, it is so well located a car really isn’t necessary. There are so many pluses to the LX Boutique that these two small points can be easily overlooked.
