The International Design Hotel is perhaps not a typical member of the Small Luxury Hotel Group. They had also be found on Tablet, and that better describes what you'll find. The hotel is "hip" and modern, with the "luxury" being comfy beds, wonderful staff and nice amenities is a great location. Nothing we asked was too much trouble for them... More

We stayed there for 4 nights. From the arrival we were welcome by the friendly staff. I asked to change the room, because it was really tiny and next day we got a Zen room which was excellent. The hotel is small, but so nicely design. Every floor has a theme and a characteristic scent. Their breakfast is so good.... More

Perfect location, in the heart of the city a very cool hotel and with a young vibe. Perfect location for shopping and for discovering the old Lisbon. Nicely decorated and definitely recommend their restaurant on the first floor.

The staff at IDH is best in the world! They were so friendly, personable, and helpful.

The petite hotel is perfectly located in the center, with walking distance to most sights. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast was great. Our suite was small with comfortable beds, pillows and duvets. It was quiet eventhough the windows were facing the square where there was a continous flow of traffic. The menu in the restaurant was innovative... More

The family of four (incl. 2 teenagers) stayed here during a brief weekend i november, aiming to seek out as many of Lisbons beatiful places and tastes as possible. The pick-ut at the airport, welcoming at the reception, breakfasts at "Bastard" (the restaurant located at the 1st floor) was all encounters of the friendliest, yet professional, hospitality imaginable.

Stayed here for two nights in March. We chose the hotel because of the location and because it had parking available in the paarking house nearby. The staff is nice and helpful, the overall idea great. I loved the breakfast with champagne and gorgeous selection of cheese and hams. One of the best hotel breakfasts I've ever had. The rooms...
