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!

Perfect little oasis hidden up the cobbled streets at the top of the hill, the hotel is part of a former palace backing onto the castle walls. The hotel's finish is to a very high standard and a beautiful mix of old & modern. We stayed in room 2, overlooking the castle grounds and it was surprisingly quiet - the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst exploring Lisbon. The hotel was fantastic, lovely architecture, friendly staff, great rooms and a good breakfast. All in all made for a brilliant stay, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for something a bit different in Lisbon.

We stayed in room #8, overlooking the narrow cobblestone street. The room was perfect! So much charm, with the high wood ceiling and exposed beams. It was really a very romantic room. There is plenty of closet space, great wifi connection, and everything you need- including a lovely decanter of port wine with 2 glasses waiting! There was also a... More

The Location: Sited along the exterior wall of Castelo Sao Jorge (former Moorish castle), and located in one of the most traditional and vibrant Portuguese neighbourhoods in Lisboa; Solar do Castelo is about as ideal a location as you'll find in Lisboa. Its mix of romantic 17th century style and modern conveniences make it an ideal hotel for couples. The... More

Solar do Castelo is located within the castle walls - beautiful hotel-charming courtyard where in good weather you can take your breakfast. It is a very steep uphill climb to get there, but taxis can go right up to the front door, so that is not a problem. There is a peacock on premises that is beautiful but does sqwak... More

A perfect nice place, ideal for tourist to visit the old Lisboa. Good way to fit a hotel in a old building, It is in the centre of the old city next to the fort/castle which you should visit. The view is breath-taking

Beautiful hotel, my husband and I went here for a quick quiet holiday! The rooms are great, we had a king bed which was very comfortable! A little hard to find, but make sure you get a map printed out from the hotel before you go! The cost by taxi from the airport was $30 euros. Hotel staff are very... More

Its a unique B&B with a quirky design & very relaxed atmosphere. If you want something different from a chain then this is an ideal choice. After reading lots of reviews we got the hotel to organise a transfer from the airport for us. Cost was 40 Eur. I thought that this was expensive but as we arrived at midnight... More

If you are going to Lisbon, then this is the place to stay. A wonderful hotel, smack bang in the middle of everything. The room was beautiful with fluffy bathrobes and slipper, not to mention the magically refilling port decanter. Breakfast is a real smorgasbord and can be eaten out in the garden watching the peacocks hoping over the castle... More
