This is a nice hotel but located in a difficult spot. Our taxi could only drive up steep, winding narrow cobblestone streets to a small plaza by an arch. Then the driver called the hotel and a woman drove down a large golf cart to pick up our luggage and bring us to the hotel, which was situated on the... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. Old town Lisboa is a brilliant location but carrying luggage there is tough due to steep uphill road leading to the entrance made of uneven tiles so send someone in first and the hotel will send a golf kart to collect your bags and fellow travellers. There is no mini fridge. Everything else... More

Last month we've stayed 3 nights at the Solar do Castelo. It was a really wonderful stay. The location is the most quiet and most beautiful of Lisbon. The little courtyard with fountain and peacocks is immaculate. Breakfast is the best ever, and our room ( Alfama ) was very comfortable and cozy. The staff is very descent and friendly,... More

We stayed four nights in this amazingly beautiful small hotel and really enjoyed our holiday there. The hotel is located on the top of the hill and walk there was not the easiest one - a taxi ride up costs only a couple of euros though. Staff of the hotel was extremely nice and helpful, every detail in the decoration... More

We stayed here for 5 days and the location was great to get away from the main crowds. Hotel staff were very pleasant and welcoming. Breakfast was served until 12 noon which is great for us as late starters! Lovely courtyard with noisy Peacocks but this was a very unique experience. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a little... More

Got upgraded to this hotel due an overbooking elsewhere. Amazing location. Taxi ride was a real experience. Exquisite interior. Good service. Lovely room. Steep walk to get anywhere but well worth it.

I stayed here for a weekend having booked through work so thought I knew what to expect, but yet we were still blown away by the beauty of the place the minute the huge doors opened and we stepped inside. The staff all so attentive and the breakfast fresh & varied. The hotel is so well designed into the castle... More

Lovely location despite the climb up the hill each night, although there are always buses and taxis available. Hotel had a very calming feeling as very few staff rushing around, but very helpful when needed. Great being able to sit outside in the peaceful courtyard for breakfasts. Would definitely stay again.

with surrounding moorish castle and peacocks wondering around, in the charming narrow streets of Alfama, this is a wonderful hotel. Nearby Fado places. The service is excellent. I will be happy to stay in this hotel again.

lovely people, lovely interiors, great breakfast. I dont think any more needs to be said but tripadvisor informs me otherwise - 200 minimum so I have to keep on typing until that number is reached or it isn't accepted - just gone over!
