We were really pleased with our stay at this hotel. The fabulous internal courtyard replete with peacocks really set the tone for a lovely stay. The location is certainly out of the way, at the very top of the city, perched next to the castle walls. However, this didn't bother us, as we enjoyed being in the wonderful historical part... More

This hotel is one of the best places to stay at in Lisbon, even though reaching the hotel might be a bit challenging at first. The surrounding is phenomenal, and the hospitality they provide is amazing ! I Love it ! Definitely recommend it

We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Phenomenal location inside the wall of the beautiful old Castelo do Sao Jorge. High up on a hill with beautiful views from many of the rooms. Service was friendly, professional and impeccable. Beautiful terrace that is frequented by wild peacocks that live around the Castle. Classy, elegant decor.

Fantastic hotel built into the stone wall of the old castle. Peaceful location yet within easy walking distance to the shopping, attractions, tram and bus routes of Lisbon. The peacocks that roamed the grounds were a beautiful addition. Very pleasant and cosy guest lounge area. Many rooms had their own small balcony with views into the garden courtyard area.

My wife and I had the absolute pleasure of stopping here again over the weekend of the 7th of February for 3 nights. We were immediately recognized on our arrival and our greeting was a genuine one. Although a couple of hours early (we intended just to leave our bags and check in) our room was already waiting for us... More

Very charming hotel near the Castelo de São Jorge that is one of the most visited monuments of Lisbon. The mix between the new and the old was well designed, the rooms are clean and cozy and the crew is amazing. I do recommend!

We reserved what turned out to be the "penthouse" room with a lovely view of the Tagus (Tejo) River for a two night stay. We arrived on a crack of dawn flight from Newark, but fortuitously our room was ready and we were able to check in immediately. Be forewarned, many taxis won't drive up the narrow steep cobblestone street... More

The Solar do Castelo was a random pick among the so-called Heritage Hotels of Lisbon. The hotel's public spaces were beautiful, combining antique and modern art and decor. The room was equally beautiful and comfortable. For committed city walkers like ourselves, the Solar was convenient to sites we wanted to visit. The staff was friendly and professional. For our October... More

We spent 2 nights in this very pretty hotel, located next to St George’s castle, in the Alfama neighbourhood. Even though we had instructions, the taxi driver could not find the way to the hotel and left us on the street, where the staff picked us up in a golf cart. Our room was fairly large and well appointed. Breakfast... More
