A central Lisbon hotel in an 18th-century Pombaline building on the famous Rossio Square, including breakfast and a bottle of wine

With a view over the expansive Rossio Square in central Lisbon, the boutique My Story Hotel Rossio describes itself as ‘four floors of history’. Its classic, 18th-century Pombaline building has been refreshingly converted with 21st-century flair and imagination - think creative industrial chic, with decorative touches like white plaster doves flying up slate-grey walls sitting comfortably with glass-drop chandeliers. Guest rooms have stripped-back wooden beams and quirky pieces, like bell jar bedside lamps.

It's hard to improve on this city location, being surrounded by the many elegant buildings that sprang up after the notorious 1755 earthquake. You’ll find large, tree-lined squares with bars and cafés frequented by writers and artists. From here, you can easily explore the rest of Lisbon on foot. Check out the boutiques and designer shops of Avenida de Liberdade, and climb up to Castelo de São Jorge for magnificent city views. Make sure you leave some energy for experiencing the legendary nightlife in Bairro Alto.

The hotel is right on Rossio Square (also known as Praca de Dom Pedro IV). It's hard to improve on this city location, being surrounded by the many elegant buildings that sprang up after the notorious 1755 earthquake. You’ll find large, tree-lined squares with bars and cafés frequented by writers and artists, such as Café Nicola - the meeting place of many a Portuguese politician. Other noteworthy attractions include the D. Maria II National Theatre for art exhibitions and plays, and the delightfully overgrown Jardim Botanico close by.

From here, you can easily explore the rest of Lisbon on foot. Check out the boutiques and designer shops of Avenida de Liberdade, and climb up to Castelo de São Jorge for magnificent city views. Make sure you leave some energy for experiencing the legendary nightlife in Bairro Alto. For trips out of town - especially to Sintra with its fairy-tale villa and palaces up in the hills - you'll find metro, taxis, buses and trams within easy reach.
