When travelling, nothing is more important than having a place that I’m excited to relax at after a long day of exploring. A little home away from home where I can take a hot shower, get cosy under the covers, and catch some much-needed ZzZz’s.
That’s why, in the midst of the hustle and bustle of a big city like Lisbon, I was so excited to find my little oasis: Hotel White Lisboa.
ABOUT HOTEL WHITE LISBOA
Hotel White Lisboa is a boutique hotel located near the centre of Lisbon, offering 41 rooms, a rooftop pool, and amazing breakfast spread to help you fuel up for your Lisbon adventures. And it’s name is no coincidence – the hotel has a very minimalistic, modern design and is virtually all white.
GETTING TO HOTEL WHITE LISBOA
From Lisbon Airport: The location of the hotel is near Lisbon airport, roughly 15 minutes away by Uber or taxi. We opted to take an Uber to the airport, as this option was a much better value than taking a taxi (cost: ~7 euros).
From the Train Station: When arriving in Lisbon, we took the train to the ‘Entrecampos’ station, and then transferred to the metro system. The closest metro stop is ‘Saldana’ which is located literally right in front of the hotel.
HOTEL HIGHLIGHTS & AMENITIES
Hotel White Lisboa offers a ‘Bed & Breakfast’ rate, which includes a buffet-style breakfast served from 7 until 10 am. We indulged in the breakfast during our stay, which included a wide spread of options including a variety of bread, fruits, Portuguese pasteries (you can never eat enough pastel de natas), juices, coffee, tea, and yogurt. It was the perfect way to begin our day and saved us the hassle of finding a breakfast spot, so that we could get our day started.
Admittedly, this was my absolute favourite part about my stay at Hotel White Lisboa. The rooftop infinity pool felt so refreshing after a long, hot day wandering around Lisbon, and the lounge chairs offered the perfect vantage point to take in the most beautiful views.
If you’re looking for a hotel with a pool in Lisbon, this is your spot.
TIP: To avoid the crowds (and expensive drink prices) in the city centre, head up to the rooftop with your favourite drink at sunset and watch the planes glide across the skyline.

Front Desk Staff
The front desk staff was available 24/7, and offered us some great tips on how to make the most of our time in Lisbon. Additionally, they provided an all-day drink service that definitely came in handy (sometimes a girl just needs a pre-dinner espresso pick-me-up).
Spacious, Modern Rooms
I truly can’t saw enough about our hotel room at Hotel White Lisboa. It was incredibly chic and modern. Very spacious (which was so welcomed after staying at a string of small hotel rooms throughout Portugal). And most importantly, SO CLEAN.
It offered all the amenities that I typically look for in a hotel room including a large, modern shower, and toiletries including shampoo, soaps, and other vanity items.
For when you’re looking to unwind before bed, the room also featured a large TV that was mounted to the wall and disguised as a mirror.
And we loved our window views overlooking some of the most beautiful Portuguese architecture.
Our room was stocked with a large spring water bottle, chocolates, and fresh fruit. This hotel seriously thought of everything. And was so committed to making sure their guests have the best possible stay.
I can’t say enough about the location of this hotel. Located just north of the busy city centre, Hotel White Lisboa is located in the business district of Lisbon and right on the metro line. And I truly mean RIGHT on it – the ‘Saldana’ stop is located outside its front door.
During our time in Lisbon, which purchased 24 hour unlimited metro passes each day for only 6.40 euros, which meant getting virtually anywhere in the city was a breeze.
What I loved most about the location of this hotel was that even though it was on a main street near the city centre, the neighbourhood was away from the heart of the most touristy locations, and as a result was very quiet at night. It was the perfect escape from the busyness of Lisbon.
PRICES & BOOKING
Prices for a basic room begin at 102 euros a night, which is quite the bargain in a large city like Lisbon. I would recommend adding the ‘Bed and Breakfast’ option for grab and go convenience.
For the best rates, you can book on the Hotel White Lisboa website here.
And in case I haven’t convinced you to stay here yet (which I find incredibly hard to believe)…
Fodor’s Travel named Hotel White Lisboa the #4 hotel on their ‘9 Best Value Hotels in Lisbon’ list.
It’s no secret like Lisbon is a trendy travel destination. And for good reason – the city is so cool. But with trendiness comes rising hotel prices, and Hotel White Lisboa provides the perfectly affordable little home away from home oasis you’re looking for in Lisbon. I’m so thrilled that I was able to spend three nights here, and would urge you to book this hotel in Lisbon if you’re planning a trip to the city.
