We had a wonderful experience at the Lapa Palace. Room was spacious and clean and beautifully furnished. The staff is efficient and offers great hospitality. Everyone had a smile and always took care of our needs. Concierge was great for sight seeing and suggestions for restaurants, but most importantly they helped us out as we left something important at the... More

Two of us stayed for a week over the Christmas period. Everybody in the hotel was very friendly and very professional. The food in the restaurant is excellent leading to a very enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.

We had a group stay at this hotel for two nights and everyone raved about the hotel. My room had a balcony that overlooked the pool and garden area and also the river. The staff at this hotel were very friendly and efficient. We used the concierge to hire a private car and driver for the day and they did... More

We wish we could just live in this beauty in the hills, set in the embassy district and overlooking the Tagus. We stayed four nights in a spacious, 6th-floor room with a balcony, overlooking both the pool and the river. The king bed was comfortable.The bathroom was a little tight and had limited counter space, but was still adequate.The breakfast... More

Spent a few days here with my husband for our wedding vow renewal. It's a bit hard to find, but just follow signs to the American Embassy, it's around the corner from it. The room was large with a very large balcony overlooking the gardens and pool. We hired a private driver to escort us around town and give us... More

I stayed at the Lapa Palace twice and was impressed both times. It is a beautiful, charming property with comfortable rooms and beautiful views of the Rio Tejo. The gardens are lovely and the swimming area is a welcome retreat after a long day of sightseeing. While the hotel is not walkable to other parts of Lisbon, it is located... More

The Lapa Palace hotel is a slightly old fashioned, but still very likable grand hotel on Lapa hill, some 20 - 25 min. on foot from the town center and 10 min. on foot from the Estrela Basilica, where the nearest tram (E 28) stop is. The area around the hotel is scattered with palaces and embassy buildings, so is... More

Yes, the Lapa Palace is a little bit away from the sights downtown, but it is only two long blocks from one of the main 100-year-old tram lines, a wonderful way to get downtown if you don't want to use one of the friendly, inexpensive cabs. Our comfortable room had a great view of the river. We only ate dinner... More

Lapa Palace lives up to its name. Opulent entrance lobby and big rooms with big bathrooms. Fine dining dinner food was excellent and the sommelier was very helpful in suggesting good Portugese wines. Its location is a bit out of town, so you need to get a taxi everywhere, but these are cheap in Lisbon. The hotel wasn't too busy... More
