The location is fantastic, the rooms were comfortable, the staff is friendly and the hotel is stylish. However, we had some of the same problems other travelers reported - loud peacocks (very cool, I loved that there were peacocks roaming around outside having face offs with the neighborhood cats) and a loud band playing nearby on Saturday night. It wouldn't... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for stay with us and share you feedback. We are very happy that you appreciated our friendly staff as well as our decoration and location.

Went with my boyfriend for a special night and it was perfect. Beautiful location, the hotel in itself has a magical twist and the room was simply amazing. Large, big windows, awesome view, huge comfortable bed. It had everything we needed and it was such a comfortable night. Breakfast was very good. I highly recommend this hotel and I hope... More

Small hotel in a great location (at top of the hill but there is a bus up to the castle!). Helpful staff able to give good restaurant recommendations, great breakfast, enjoyed seeing the peacocks which hopped over from the castle grounds!

Peacock patrolled courtyard.10min walk down through residential cobbled streets with caged birds singing to City centre, Cathedral and Waterfront/ferries. 15mins to Rossio station for trains to Sintra - good day trip to Summer Palace, Moors Castle, and good...

Lovely hotel , real attention to detail. Relaxing place to stay. Breakfast outside in small but charming courtyard. Great location next to the castle. Staff friendly and very helpful. Stayed for a long weekend, would have loved to stay longer.

Lovely hotel, beautiful grounds, attentive staff, great room. What more can I say? Particularly good for couples. A bit difficult to get to, but worth the effort (and isn't that what travel should be about anyway). Just give yourself plenty of time to get lost and let it transport you to the gentle part of Lisboa.

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
