BessaHotel is a bright, modern, and colorful 4-star hotel situated on the southern end of Avenida Liberdade. This location places it within walking distance to Lisbon highlights like Baixa and Alfama, while also being more or less equidistant from the Principe Real and Bairro Alto gayborhoods (just under 15 minutes to either). There’s also a gay-owned cafe, Tribo Tapiocaria, just around the corner.
The hotel has brand-new facilities and modern rooms, all decorated in a neutral and tasteful style. All rooms feature an integrated Bluetooth sound system and comfortable beds – check out the Superior Room with two double beds if you’re traveling with friends.
There is an in-house restaurant and bar, Tabik, which serves creative dishes and inventive cocktails in a laid-back contemporary setting. The terrace is particularly lovely, with a large vertical garden overlooking it. It is adjacent to the pool, which is indoors but glass-fronted, making it a pleasant space any time of year.
In addition to the pool, BessaHotel has a sauna, Turkish bath, and a gym available for guests. The gym is small but airy and well-appointed, with cardio equipment and free weights.
