The Hotel Borges, a basic three-star situated near the Largo do Chiado at the base of the hot Bairro Alto scene, offers rooms at moderate rates, with a dose of "grand hotel" nostalgia thrown in.

Having opened its doors in 1886, the Borges is one of Lisbon's oldest hotels. It still retains a few old-fashioned touches, most notably the gorgeous green fluorescent marquis. And the lobby sports a touch of '70s flair.

The hotel’s rooms are simple affairs, with green carpet, wooden furniture and recessed lighting. All 96 are equipped with air conditioning soundproof windows, a satellite television and telephone.

Old-fashioned hotels often feature generous-sized rooms, and the Borges is no exception—a couple rooms we saw were quite spacious, and some on the front have balconies overlooking the square (ask ahead). Baths come with bright tiled floors and new fixtures.

The hotel’s neighbor, the landmark Café Bernard, serves drinks to a trendy and touristy clientele at outdoor tables. And Lisbon’s Bairro Alto bar and restaurant scene gets bumping about a block away. If you’ll be taking advantage of Lisbon’s nightlife, the Borges would make a very convenient home base.

Wi-Fi is available in public areas for an additional charge. Breakfast is included in the room rate.

About the Hotel Borges Chiado neighborhood

West of Baixa, the Bairro Alto twists up a mountain. Its moody streets are bordered by steep stairways and winding alleys. The Bairro Alto is beautiful, with an organic mix of the hip, rustic, and picturesque. It's also crowded at night thanks to hot clubs, trendy bars and restaurants. Between the two 'hoods sits hilly Chiado; it's full of sophisticated cafes, museums, boutiques and theaters.
