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

The hotel is located in a very quiet area of Lisbon but a little bit far from the centre. It has beautiful gardens and pools. The rooms are huge (and I was in a standard one) but the bed is not very comfortable. My room was close to the fountain so I could hear the noise of it all night.... More

3 night stay. Paid a bit extra for a room with a view of the bay and well worth it. Our priority is quiet, clean, comfortable sleep. We had it. We ate in the restaurant and ordered room service and the food and service were excellent. Yes, a bit expensive, but not more than any other quality hotel. And yes,... More
