My fiancee and I arrived and were instantly greeted by the porters who opened the car doors and took our suitcases. We checked in and were escorted up to our beautiful garden/pool view room. Joanne was extremely helpful and attentive. The room was beautiful, the photos do not do it justice. We have high standards for hotels and this room... More

My boyfriend brought me here as a surprise for our first night in Portugal. I was utterly blown away. Every single thing about this hotel is impeccable, from the service, to the rooms, the incredible buffet breakfast, the cocktails by the pool! The architecture is very oppulant and extravagent, marble floors and every piece of furniture has been picked with... More

The seniority, well appointed outdoor areas and the odd layout of the Palace, signals to the grandeur of another area. A delight to still find linen towels, so European. The concierge service at its best, the porter greets you with pride and elegance. Great location. A must for cruisers.

We stayed as a party of 4 in two rooms in late June. The fact that the Lapa Palace is a 5-star property is immediately obvious as you arrive. Manicured gardens out front, and plenty of staff were there to greet us, and remembered our names throughout our 3 night stay. The entrance hall is impressive and beautifully appointed. The... More

I stayed here only because a friend of mine could not stop talking about how great it was. And I completely agree, what a great stay. The rooms are large and they all have amazing balconies with beautiful views. This is defiantly number One in Lisbon!

Booked a three nights stay (to celebrate our 8-year anniversary) based on the reviews. Even though the interior feels a bit dated, the service and atmosphere is flawless and five star all the way. The pool area is really nice ( but the prices in the pool bar a bit beyond acceptable), and the gym is good. Taxis are cheap,... More

Nice hotel in a not so convenient location. Rooms were spacious and nicely appointed. Large bathroom with huge walk in shower and separate tub. Staff was exceptional. Nice pool area as well. Downside is not in a great location. Cab ride required to get downtown. As much as we enjoyed this hotel, we would stay downtown next time.

We have recently stayed here for the third time. It is like an oasis in the middle of an old residential area of Lisbon. The service is superb, the rooms are spacious and well appointed the gardens and pool are very relaxing and breakfast is in an old courtyard which is very relaxing. This is a proper 5 star hotel...

This hotel is an oasis in Lisbon, it is a little far way some attractions, but Lisbon taxi service is very good and inexpensive, usually it will take 10' journey to any important place and 5,00 euros. The service granted in this hotel is second to none! Everyone in the hotel is friendly and very professional, but with a touch... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in the 19th-century, this luxurious palace is nestled on a hilltop overlooking the Tagus River and presents guests with the ideal base for an unforgettable stay in Lisbon. Tucked away in the city's diplomatic quarter, Lapa Palace is set in a beautiful sub-tropical garden. Sunbathe on a lounger in the pool area or pay a visit to the Spa, where you can treat yourself to hours of relaxation in the sauna. Traditional decor and elegant designs make each of the rooms a haven after a day of work or sightseeing. Marvel at panoramic views from the comfort of your balcony or enjoy a long bath in your marble bathroom. Thanks to the palace's convenient location, central Lisbon is only a short drive away. Park your car for free on site and indulge in fresh seafood at the restaurant. In the meantime, the concierge is happy to arrange various services for you, including the use of the VIP room facilities. ... more   less
