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

We loved our stay at Solar Do Castelo. The accommodation was superb with a lovely relaxed calm atmosphere. Staff were friendly and helpful at all times. Breakfast fantastic. A brilliant location too, a quiet sanctuary amongst the hubbub of visitors to the neighbouring castle. Would definitely stay here again.

Great service and charming facilities are the hallmark of this Heritage Hotels boutique find in the Alfama area of Lisbon. An early arrival needlessly concerned us. Like may European trips, we arrived mid morning at our destination hotel. We were surprised and delighted to be given a room key and the offer of fabulous coffee ( Nespresso) and a seat... More

Spent 5 nights here with my wife. It is a small, quiet hotel but very comfortable - not showy luxury but getting the important things right. Goes to the top of the class for the quietest air conditioning I have experienced; with 30C outside during the day it was welcome and it could be left on quiet setting all night... More
