Bottom Line

The 55-room Internacional Design Hotel is a stylish, trendy boutique right in the heart of the city center. Rooms are divided into four different categories -- Zen, Urban, Pop, Tribe -- all with distinct decor styles and vibes, but with the same wonderful amenities, including Nespresso coffeemakers, Sony flat-screen TVs, Ritual toiletries, and jetted shower/tub combos. But Zen Rooms feel more generic than zen, and Cocoon and Small rooms are, well, small. Hotel features include a solid organic restaurant, a multi-purpose space that doubles as a business center, and a wine bar with workshops. But what really sets this hotel apart is the innovative design and concept, and its central location on Rossio Square.

On Rossio Square, walking distance to most major attractions and public transportation

Map of Internacional Design Hotel

The Internacional Design Hotel has a great location right on Rossio, one of the city’s main squares since the 13th century. The square is lined with restaurants and local stores, and is one of the must-sees in the city center. This central location is great for exploring the sights on foot, and most of the major attractions are within walking distance, including the Bairro Alto, the Praca do Comercio, and even St. George’s Castle and Alfama neighborhood.

There are many tourist-y places and restaurants tend to be more expensive than in other parts of town, but other less crowded areas with more variety are just a short walk away. For longer distances, the Rossio metro station and several bus and tram lines can be found less than a block away.
