Our room with ensuite was charming And very comfortable with spotless linen and towels. We found all staff were friendly from those caring for our room to the reception staff making us feel very welcome and most helpful with any information we required. The breakfast included was very good with a variety of food to meet both our needs. Provision... More

This is a relatively cheap hotel compared with London prices. As you open the unbeguling front door you enter a courtyard that is cool and inviting. Our room is small but functional. The welcome treat was a decanter of port that we are eeking out as a nightcap each night. The bed is a bit hard but the hotel has... More

The location of this hotel is great. We were in Lisbon during a festival, so we had everything on our doorstep, but this was also a calm oasis to return to (especially the lovely courtyard). The staff were helpful, breakfast was huge and delicious, and the bedroom was really comfortable. My only complaint would be about the screeching peacocks -... More

Beautifully located just minutes walk (using 2 lifts pointed out by reception) from the centre of Lisbon, but on the hill by Castello Sao Jorge with views over the city and the Rio Tejo. This small hotel is tastefully decorated throughout with a relaxing courtyard space and large lounge. Drinks are available from a well-stocked honesty bar, while free help-yourself... More

Lovely small hotel, formerly part of castle kitchens. Perfect blend of old building and modern facilities. All day tea/coffee and pastries and an honesty bar complete the comfortable feel. Fantastic Moorish courtyard for taking breakfast and relaxing and you really do feel you can stay there all day. Just go and see for yourself, you won't regret it.

Good location near the castle and easy to roam the streets. Good restaurants nearby which the hotel recommended. Relaxed atmosphere, liked the honesty bar and breakfast outside. Bedroom small but quiet, good amenities and Molson Brown toiletries.

The hotel is very nice. Great rooms, Services are fine. No Restaurant. Just few and simple appetizers. Not all taxis go there. Impossible to get there in your own car. It is practically inside the Castle on top of the City. A bit far away from downtown. People are friendly and warm.

Dear Guest, Thank you for review and to give us the opportunity to precise some points. The Solar do Castelo is located in the cradle of Lisbon on the top of Alfama and provides a unique and authentic historic experience. Its location in the castle village, inside the outer walls of the castle, is not the easiest part of the... More

Solar Do Castelo is a very comfortable, friendly hotel in an ideal location. Tea, coffee and pastries in the lounge were a very welcome addition and the breakfasts were excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

Great location near the castle. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast gorgeous and lovely outside terrace. The bedroom was very comfortable and had a lovely balcony. Would definitely return. One small criticism is that there was no safe in the room.

This hotel was amazing. Quiet (aside from the peacocks) and totally set away from the City up on a hill in the castle. Rooms are amazingly beautiful, the service and staff and beyond helpful, the hotel is very clean and the wifi worked brilliantly. It is a hike and most cabs will not take you to the hotel doors but... More
