Here are some of the best hotels for Lisbon New Year’s Eve fireworks. These four and five-star hotels have prime locations, and some rooms offer incredible views over Lisbon and the River Tejo.
Even if you don’t get a room with a window looking out onto the action, you can be in a prime position at the hotel’s terrace or restaurant watching Lisbon’s night sky lit up.
Hotel do Chiado
With stunning views of Lisbon’s Moorish Castle and the River Tejo, Hotel do Chiado’s rooftop terrace is the perfect place to celebrate the New Year, and a vantage point to watch Lisbon fireworks on the riverfront. Rooms are bright and some have spacious terraces.
Pousada de Lisboa – Small Luxury Hotels Of The World
Located on the northwest corner of Terreiro do Paço, Lisbon’s most important riverside square, Pousada de Lisboa offers accommodation right in the centre of the action. Tradition and modernity are perfectly blended in this hotel, which has an indoor pool and rooms overlooking the square.
Don’t expect to get much sleep until the early hours of the first day of the year. The big event in Terreiro do Paço is free, and gathers thousands listening to Portuguese bands before and after the fireworks display at midnight.

Epic Sana is preparing a new year’s package that includes a sophisticated gala evening with dinner buffet and a brunch on the first day of the new year. This five-star hotel has rooms that offer striking views of Lisbon – make sure you choose a room with a river view. Also, don’t miss out on the rooftop infinity pool, if not for a swim, at least for the views
