Concierge.com's insider take:
The International Design Hotel is a fun property smack-bang in the center of the city on Rossio Square. This 55-room boutique in two refurbished late 19th-century buildings has four floors offering different—rather disjointed—themes on each level. On the Urban floor, techno and house music is pumped through the corridors, which are lined with vinyl records and images of Bairro Alto's street art. The smell of the city is (relief) Chanel No. 5. The Tribal level is all wooden floors, fur rugs, earthy tones, tribal art, and the heady scent of cinnamon. If you opt for the Zen floor, expect a soothing brown-and-white color scheme, minimalist decor, and the aroma of green tea. The Pop Art floor is the least easy on the eye (and the nose), with Barbie pink and white decor and a bubble gum smell. All guest rooms have free Wi-Fi and range in size from 12 to 22 square feet. Some overlook a glass-interior atrium with funky lamps; others face the square. The hotel's Rossio Wine Bar, frequented by a young, hip crowd, is a good spot to sit back and take in the bustle of Rossio Square.—Anja Mutić
