As one of the oldest cities in Europe, Lisbon's history is enough to make every culture aficionado faint from excitement. The city has so much to offer to its visitors including spectacular buildings adorned with quintessentially Portuguese tiles, narrow streets roofed in terracotta tile, neoclassical buildings painted in soft ice-cream colours and iconic architectural landmarks to dive deep into the European history.
Of course, the city is also known for its all-year-round sundrenched landscape, and high heat of the summer months that make staying in the city almost unbearable. That, of course, is unless you stay in a hotel like Hotel White Lisboa. Imagine yourself having your favorite cocktail on-hand, sunbathing on a rooftop pool in the midst of Lisbon while observing the gorgeous cityscape of red-tiled roofs and pastel-color buildings. This is the definition of the Hotel White Lisboa experience.
But, you must be wondering by now: what's that hotel all about? Let's find out!
What people say about Hotel White Lisboa

Staying in the heart of Lisbon
Reaching Hotel White Lisboa is pretty easy as it's right in front of Saldanha Metro Station. It only takes about 15 minutes to reach the city's downtown (Avenida de Liberdade) from the hotel via metro and taxi, but, in case you also want to explore the nearby villages and small towns, rent-a-car service is also available at the hotel.
Iconic Lisbon areas like Chiado, Rossio, Praca do Comercio and Bairro Alto are within reach via the Metro Station. Of course, there are plenty of restaurants and a couple of night venues at the hotel's doorstep to relax and enjoy a cozy dinner/cocktail within a walking distance.
Modern Rooms in the Lisbon's Center
Forty-one rooms and four suites were carefully designed to offer an atmosphere of comfort and tranquility to their guests. All rooms are painted in the hotel's characteristic white, featuring same-colour furniture with gray hues. Floor-to-ceiling windows adorned by white, see-through curtains allow sunlight in, offering a natural lighting to the room.
For top-notch panoramic views of the city, you should go for one of the two glorious Suites found at the hotel's top floor. More especially, the Sky Duplex Suite that spreads through two floors is currently the best room to stay. At the first floor, you will find the living room with a sofa bed, a small kitchenette, a working area and a guest bathroom. On the 2nd floor, you will find the bedroom alongside the best views of the city.
Start your day with a rich cold breakfast!
A rich breakfast is necessary when travelling and what's better than taking your breakfast at the place where you stay? Hotel White Lisboa has included a delicious breakfast enriched with various cold plates including cold cuts, pastries, boiled eggs, fresh fruits and cereals. There is also a toaster available to heat up your bread if you want so.
The breakfast might lack hot dishes, however, it makes up for it with its wide selection of beverages featuring a coffee machine that allows you to enjoy many types of coffee, alongside a rich selection of tea and juices.
Spend classy afternoons by the pool!
The hotel's pride and joy is by far its rooftop pool. It has a comfortable size that prevents kids from diving and causing a chorus while its shallow waters are ideal to sit in it while enjoying your favorite cocktail. During a hot summer day, this pool will be your savior!
