In 2008 I rated the Lapa Palace as the best in Lisbon and in the seven years in between it has barely changed. The tasteful elegance of the decor; the charm and caring attitude of all the staff, from the Front Desk to the gardeners; the quality of the services offered, from the restaurant and the bars to the pool...

We were originally supposed to stay at another hotel, but it was sold and we were booked at their new property. Lucky for us they were behind schedule, and would not be open during our stay in Lisbon. The location of the hotel is in the embassy district. It was quiet neighborhood and about a 5-10 minute cab ride to... More

I stayed in the property for four nights with my wife on a vacation to Lisbon. The hotel is superbly located, despite being 10 minutes away from city centre it is quiet and peaceful. Our check in was smooth and we stayed in garden room with a big balcony overlooking the garden and outdoor pool. True to its name the... More

We had a river facing room in the Garden Wing which was excellent. The hotel is superbly run in a quiet, efficient and friendly way. We were very pleasantly surprised at the excellent Dinners that we had. They hold Weddings here and the only possible downside to the hotel is if the Weddings intrude as one did slightly during our... More

I stayed here from 24th May to the 31st May 2015 with my wife Valerie. We had a fabulous week staying at a hotel that I would have to rate one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The weather in May was more like July and the service and food at the Lapa Palace was simply outstanding.... More

As part of my wife's birthday celebrations my wife and I spent five days at the Lapa Palace Hotel. My search criteria was 5 star, luxury and pool and the Lapa Palace Hotel was perfect. The location is a 5 minute and 5 Euro taxi drive to central Lisbon but well worth staying here as it is very quiet and... More

The location of the hotel is great, situated in the diplomatic quarter of the city. This gives the area a quiet relaxed feel, but it is still only 5-10 mins in a taxi to the city centre. The rooms are lovely and ours had a balcony overlooking the pool which was nice. The bathroom was great, separate bath and walk... More

We have just returned from a week in the Lapa Palace, Lisbon, Portugal during which this amazing hotel hosted our son’s Hindu / Christian wedding. We have stayed there previously enjoying its virtual old world elegance and superb comfort set within a unique pool side, landscaped garden and historic city location. This time it was, if anything, better although it... More

Went there for the perfect wedding. The location is great in the Lapa quarter of Lisbon. There is a garden at the back with pool and it all feel so quiet, even though you are in the City. The hotel staff is amazing and took so good care of us. We spent quite a few late nights at the bar...... More
