Stayed here for 3 nights in early October. Could not have been more pleased with the location, room, staff or food. Attention to detail and customer care are outstanding. A very relaxing and welcoming place - will definitely return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights at Solar Do Castelo. It is charming and feels like being in a lovely private home. Breakfast is served until noon, the honor bar system is so convenient and prices are low, the decor is beautiful, and staff are very helpful. We would return again in a minute!

This was one of the best hotels on my recent trip to Europe. The staff provided outstanding service. They happily held on to my luggage when I checked in as my room wasn't ready (I took the night train from Madrid and I knew it wouldn't be ready at 8AM). I guess I was clearly tired as the gentleman working... More

In the busiest tourist destination in Lisbon, Alfama, you find Solar do Castelo with excellent service and a lot of extras. Very well maintained, clean and welcoming hotel on the very top of Lisbon. If you are afraid of walking a lot, that's not the place for you. But we are happy we stayed there, because we got to explore... More

We had 3 wonderful nights in this lovely hotel- exact what we wanted! It asks for some physical condition to get there by feet up to the castles (Taxis know the way, too..). The staff is very nice and helpfull. It's quiet- only some birds and seldom a peacock. We had the nicest room (No. 21) with elegant enterieur, great... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback. We are very happy to hear that you liked our helpful staff as well as our property in general. We are terribly sorry that you were disturbed by the noise of the windows on the night of the strong wind. The windows should not make any noise at all and we... More

This lovely hotel is located within the castle grounds, and just outside the wall of the pay-to-enter part, of Castello St. Jorge. As the cab was winding its way through narrow, cobbled streets, I wondered whether he would make it. At one point the proximity alarm started beeping. The mirrors were that close to the houses on each side! The... More

We were very pleased with our 5 night stay at Solar Do Castelo. The breakfast and staff were excellent. The location of the hotel near the Castelo in Alfama was a great central point to start all our morning trips. The hotel is close to many of the key Trams 28, 12, Hop On/Off Tram and transit 737 which takes... More

Absolutely the most charming hotel in the most charming and romantic location in Lisbon. Located in the oldest section of the city, the Alfama district high up by Castello St. Jorge, this hotel lived up to all the other great reviews we had read. The service and staff were excellent, the bathrooms large, modern, and spotless. The neighborhood this hotel... More

There are peacocks at the Castelo. One perched itself on the balcony railing of the room next to ours. What a wonderful sight. But that's just one of the wonderful things at the Castelo. There are many others. You should come and check them out for yourself. You'll find a stylish decor, great ambiance, an excellent and very attentive staff,... More

We had a delightful stay at Solar Do Castelo. The bedroom & bath were both spacious and clean. Our room was very quiet even though we faced onto the street. The breakfasts were delicious and there was always coffee, tea, iced water and biscuits available throughout the day – not to mention a carafe of Port in the bedroom! The... More
