Hidden behind a blue door, backing up to the castle walls, this is not the easiest place to find - our taxi driver insisted we walked the last 50 meters with our bags up the narrow cobbled street. Don't let that put you off though, as it was well worth the short hike (and other taxi drivers seemed to be... More

A hidden gem of a hotel, little tricky to find but worth it when you do. The room was well equipped and the complimentary port a nice touch. Buffet breakfast a great start to the day and a good variety of food to choose from. We did lots of walking in the three days we were there, best way to... More

Lovely, charming old world hotel. Spacious lounge / breakfast room with peacocks looking in through glass doors from the beautiful outdoor courtyard most mornings. Very friendly and helpful staff. Adequate hot and cold breakfast. Room and bathroom plenty big enough for a base with a complimentary decanter of excellent Port. The hotel is located within the outer castle walls up... More

Be warned that this is hard to get to by taxi and at the apex of a steep hill for walkers. The narrow streets are exciting with neighbours bird cages just brushing the sides of the vehicle. We were disappointed in the size of the main room (just right for the bed and not much else!), but the bathroom was... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. São Jorge Castle is the cradle of Lisbon and it stands in the highest of the 7 hills of Lisbon (on the top of Alfama). The Solar do Castelo is located in the small castle village where 400 people still live. If you don’t feel like walking, we will be glad to pick... More

This is a very old building located right outside the castle walls at the top of the hill. We chose the hotel for the unique location and were not disappointed. The hotel was charming and staff very friendly and helpful. However, we were a little disappointed in the room itself. While we expected it to be small as is often... More

Very nice and good hotel. Spacios reception and livingroom, beautiful outdoor courtyard. Very friendly and helpful staff, beautiful breakfast. The hotel is located by the Castelo - a steep climb from City center and is a little awquard for children and old people.

Excellent hotel with friendly staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. Great breakfast and the all day complementary hot drinks most welcome. Honesty bar is unusual in a city centre hotel. Room small but perfectly formed. Location central yet quiet during the evening and night with great restaurants on the doorstep.

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

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
