Great service - very polite and respectful staff who gave us a very warm welcome. Well presented public rooms for residents use, smart & comfortable bedrooms. The gardens are stunning with immaculate outdoor pool. Suitable for children. Well priced and good value in my view, I will certainly visit here again given the opportunity.

All you would expect from a 5 star hotel within a former palace building. Sumptuous public rooms - lounges / bar / breakfast room - all with what looks like original furniture and fittings and beautiful staircases. You're able to freely explore the whole palace and grounds, in which is located an outdoor pool and seasonal pool bar / café... More

The mainbuilding of the Hotel is a real palace evenso the garden is beautiful. The rooms itself is in a new build wing and are comfortable. The prices of the restaurant in the mainbuilding are much too high.

We had a fantastic New Years eve stay at Pestana Palace. The decor is incredible, so many lovely artefacts and art work to admire. Many thanks for the warm welcome particularly to Miguel in the hotel bar and Luisa at the concierge desk for all of their hard work.

PESTANA PALACE, While we do not ordinarily stay in such posh hotels this was a beautiful experience( we are more Rick Steves types). Just exploring the rooms and grounds made it worthwhile. The breakfast is in a very grand room and the selection of food is impressive. The location is quite good, a very reasonable taxi ride takes you to... More

I stayed at the breathtaking Pestana Palace & Hotel for two days. I loved it from the moment I laid eyes on the place. Located on a hill top of a peaceful tree lined street. Lovely views of The Tagus River and The 25th of April Bridge . I arrived very early,so my room was not yet ready. The front... More

Visiting Lisbon for a conference, I was going to stay somewhere cheaper, but that was full, so I ended up at the Pestana Palace and had a lovely stay. Staff were pleasant and welcoming from the outset. I arrived before my room was ready (they said it would be ready in about half an hour), so I asked if there... More

The cocoa baron (sorry, marquis) who built this at the end of the 19th century was heavily influenced by France - his other home was in Paris. Modern wings have been added so that one enjoys the luxury of the common parts and then has 21st century comfort a little walk away. Staff very friendly and efficient (apart from one... More

It would be worth staying her just to experience the magnificent building. We stayed in one of the new wings (as I guess most people do) but the reception areas were in the main building with its elegant décor and furnishings. The breakfast here is a real highlight and the bar service was also very good. The hotel is a... More
