LX Boutique Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Lisbon, Portugal

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Near the water, within walking distance of several sights
  • Rooms are bright and attractive with baby blue walls and upscale furniture
  • Flat-screen TVs (though they're small)
  • Hip sushi restaurant and bar
  • Small budget rooms are available
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • No fitness center or spa
  • Frosted bathroom walls aren't particularly family-friendly
  • Some rooms feature two twin beds pushed together (common in Lisbon)

Bottom Line

The 45-room LX is a cool boutique option often offering reasonable rates. It's located just south of Bairro Alto, within walking distance of the Tagus river and some major attractions. The hotel is known for its funky design; the hip sushi restaurant features bright furniture, rugs, and patterned wallpaper, and each floor of guest rooms has a different theme based on a neighborhood, place, or person in Lisbon history. They actually don't vary much aside from the themed wall murals, and all are impressive. With baby blue walls, plush bedding, upscale furniture, and small flat-screen TVs, the rooms feel cozy and high-end. Probably the coolest "funky" feature of the hotel is the graffiti-like mural on parts of the building that can be seen from some rooms. But the hotel does not have a fitness center or spa, and families may not love the frosted glass walls of the bathrooms.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

By the water south of Bairro Alto

The LX hotel is a short walk from the water and right next to a train station, in a neighborhood just south of Bairro Alto. Though this neighborhood has fewer attractions, the architecture is attractive and it is within walking distance of numerous sights and neighborhoods, including Bairro Alto.

Bairro Alto is a bustling area in Lisbon. Popular due to its lively nightlife spots, it is also home to vintage and antique shops. The cobblestone streets are often crowded with people, as are the area's bars and restaurants. Largely spared during the earthquake, Bairro Alto has some beautiful historic monuments and sights. Like in other areas of Lisbon, visitors should be careful in Bairro Alto at night, especially on the side streets; they have a reputation for loitering drug dealers. Baxia, the financial district, attracts mainly business travelers. But it does have good shopping, particularly for gold and silver. West of Baxia, Chiado is the main shopping district.

  • 19-minute drive to Lisbon Portela Airport, or 28 minutes via public transportation
  • 2-minute walk to the Cais do Sodre metro stop
  • 8-minute walk to Praca do Comercio, a beautiful plaza facing the river
  • 12-minute walk to Casa dos Bicos
  • 14-minute walk to Rossio, a main square
  • 19-minute walk to Alfama
  • 20-minute walk to the Santa Justa historic elevator, with great views, or 9 minutes via public transportation
  • 23-minute walk to the National Museum of Ancient Art, or 12 minutes via public transportation
  • 24-minute walk or a 7-minute drive to St. George's Castle
  • 11-minute drive to the Coach Museum, the largest museum of royal coaches in the world, or 22 minutes via public transportation
  • 13-minute drive to the Jeronimos Monastery, or 23 minutes via public transportation
  • 15-minute drive to the Belem Tower, or 27 minutes via public transportation
