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

I stayed 3 nights while I was in a professional trip. Beautiful historic building with great gardens. Calm environment. Their service was excellent and I really loved the breakfast which was very rich in choices. Stay of high quality, unique and not a standardized experience. I definitely recommend it!

arriving in Lisbon with rain and for the next 3 days more rain to come, this hotel really made our stay. The beautiful surrounding, the spa and the spacious suite(we were upgraded to) were a place you enjoyed returning to after a wet and gray day. Breakfast in the morning was great, the quality of everything exquisite and the personal... More

Excellent Hotel on the banks of the Duoro River. We spent two nights here with a deluxe river view room. Super clean with a very good breakfast. The area surrounding the hotel is a very popular tourist spot. The staff were all very professional and friendly.

A splendid place to stay in Lisbon and very friendly staff. Many major monuments are close to the hotel and prefect if you are on a short tip. A remarkable to place to stay at a reasonable price. The room was very spacious, comfortable, quite and very clean. The dinner i had at the restaurant was one to remember, both... More

Friendly helpful staff, awesome rooms, delicious buffet breakfast fit for a King. The hotel is furnished with period pieces to add to the ambience of the Palace. The grounds are immaculate with a lovely pool. The hotel is approx 10-15 mins drive from the city but they do have a shuttle bus to certain attractions but it is a 7... More
