Lisbon is an amazing city in general. I just loved everything about it. The hotel itself I do recommend for those who are not afraid of climbing over the most high hill of the city every damn day))) specially it's getting hard when it's hot! But for me it's the opposite - I love hills and that was quite an... More

ABSOLUTELY wonderful. Make sure you live on the 4th/5th floor. Make sure you talk to staff. They are full of knowledge - especially Cyrill. And they help you whereever they can and you want them to. Loved you all.

We stayed in two different rooms in this hotel. The first night we had another adult with us so the double room with the river view was perfect for us. The lofted area had an extra bed perfect for our short friend (very low ceiling in the loft). We enjoyed a glass off port at check-in on the lovely patio.... More

We do enjoy hiking and so didn't mind the four-flight walk up. Worth it! The hallways are lined with interesting art, beckoning you up another flight, and our magnificent quasi-suite at the top was a great reward for the effort! Large, airy room with wooden shutters that open onto breathtaking views of the city and the river. Room itself was... More

Very helpful staff. Clean and well maintained. Great location and many rooms have a stunning view of the city. Great value. We stayed twice and would stay again. The continental breakfast was better than most.

My gf and I have been to Lisbon 5 times and stayed in hotels in the Baixa, Belem, and a different hotel in the Alfama. The Solar dos Mouros is our new favorite. Not only did our room (#2 - Suite River View) have a lovely view of the river, it was also incredibly spacious and well appointed. The price... More

My adult daughter and I spent three very enjoyable and comfortable nights at Solar dos Mouros, who provided a most welcome arrival gift of port and fresh fruit. The room was very spacious & well-furnished, and the quality of the bed was excellent. Although the view was facing houses and (higher up) the castle walls, rather than looking over the... More
