Why we choose Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon

The Four Seasons Hotel Ritz has found an unfailing recipe for making guests feel like superstars

  • Settle into the largest rooms in the city, most with private terraces
  • Marvel at the 600-piece, museum-caliber art collection
  • Private concierges called floor managers tend to guests’ every whim

Both public and private spaces have incredible park, river and city views. Throw in fantastic service and a location with great proximity to sights in and around the city, and it’s hard to make an argument for staying anywhere else.

What you need to know about the hotel

The hotel proudly infuses Portuguese culture into everything from the food to the décor

  • Grab your board! They offer surfing and kite surfing lessons so adults and kids can dive into this surfing haven
  • Hollywood’s most glamorous icons (Ingrid Bergman, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Audrey Hepburn) have slept here. Who will you run into?
  • Afternoon tea gets even loftier in the tapestry-lined Almada Negreiros Lounge, where guests sip to the sounds of a grand piano

The Four Seasons Hotel Ritz debuted in 1959 with modern architecture and spacious interiors that have stood up admirably over the past half century. Indeed, most people would name this the best luxury hotel in the capital city. The rooms are traditionally designed, and you can’t do better than the Presidential Suite, with 2,655 square feet of outrageous comfort and amenities. Peek your head out once in a while to enjoy an afternoon at the award-winning spa or Mediterranean cuisine at Varanda Restaurant.

Lisbon is an art lover’s paradise, and hotel guests can view over 600 museum-quality pieces without leaving the property. Not only were we blown away by these collections of mid-century Portuguese art, but by the hotel’s ability to arrange private viewings at venues like The Berardo Museum and Fronteira’s Palace.

Where is it and what's nearby

It’s the best of all worlds at this city-center luxury hotel with easy access to beaches, vineyards and the countryside

  • Jump aboard an iconic, century-old tram to visit the moorish Alfama quarter and listen to the distinctive fado music
  • We recommend a motor-sidecar tour of Lisbon hotspots for a “ground up” view courtesy of an experienced driver
  • Visit Portugal’s Douro Valley for an introduction (or reintroduction) to Port, the delightful dessert wine produced exclusively in this region

The Four Seasons Hotel Ritz is situated atop one of Lisbon’s seven hills right in the heart of the city. We love the amazing views over Eduardo VII Park, St. George’s Moorish Castle and the Tagus River—a proper introduction to a city that seems to thrive on contradictions (centuries-old art and architecture vs. a youthful vibe, traditional culture vs. forward-thinking). Another plus: short drive times to the coast of Cascais and historic Sintra.

Your first step in getting to know the city should be “Lisbon Through Four Seasons Eyes,” an exclusive hotel guidebook that gives you local insight, suggests unique experiences and provides a thorough list of where to go. Whatever your itinerary, make sure it includes Portugal’s stellar lineup of food and drink. Hit the biggies like azeitao e serra (cheese), presunto (smoked ham) and regional wines. 

How to enjoy Lisbon

With its red roofs, pink cascades of bougainvillea, green palms and walls of white and yellow, Lisbon is a colorful city with a Mediterranean sense of passion and an Atlantic sense of adventure

  • If only for its name alone, you must shop at Thieves’ Market in Graça; for fashion, discover Ana Salazar in Chiado
  • Spend a day at the beach at Cascais or Estoril and watch the sunset over the Atlantic as you savor garlic clams and sip chilled vinho verde
  • Cross the harbor on the timbered walkway to visit the ornate castle-like tower, the Torre de Belém

Lisbon’s oldest quarter is Alfama where cobbled medieval alleys wind around the ochre and burnt sienna walls to the 9th century castle, St George’s. One way to get to the castle is via Tram 28. This charming old pantograph-powered tram begins at Bairro Alto and rumbles its way through the city’s most picturesque suburbs, arriving at Alfama and Graça in preparation for the return journey.

A day trip must is Sintra. Perched close to Europe’s most western tip, Sintra is an architectural and historical jewel. The fanciful towers and domes of the many palaces here rise up from the huge granite block on which Sintra sits. Most glorious of these is the fantastical Palácio Nacional da Pena, the royal family’s former summer retreat, with its pink and yellow walls and onion domes.

    When to visit Lisbon

    Although Lisbon is a year round destination, during August many independent and smaller shops and restaurants close as their owners head off on their own vacations.

  • We say

    This is the best five-star hotel in Lisbon.

  • A word from the hotel

    After a day of exploring the city (it has seven hills), you’ve earned a well-deserved 10-year Port Flip at the Ritz Bar overlooking the Eduardo VII Park, while you enjoy the sunset.

    I suggest a private visit of the Palacio Marques da Fronteira a beautiful XVIIth century palace with gorgeous tiles still inhabited by the Marques himself.
    Guilherme Costa, General Manager

  • A word from the hotel

    Why not try a unique city tour through the cobbled streets of Lisbon in moto-sidecar followed in the evening by dinner at 100 Maneiras restaurant.
