Solar Do Castelo is a quaint, very friendly and clean hotel. It is situated at the top of the hill within the walls of the castle. Right at the top of narrow, cobbled streets in the lively castle area. The hotel staff are friendly ,efficient and helpful. Breakfast is lovely, either on the court yard or dining room. The hotel...

I really can't fault this hotel. It is a peaceful haven situated right next to the castle grounds, but away from the crowds. We visited the castle early in the morning, it was so beautiful wandering around the grounds and the ramparts before the crowds arrived. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, and we had... More

This hotel is so beautiful that it feels magical. It is a mix of new and old. The new architecture mixed with the old castle kitchen was stunning. The courtyard and lobby are so lovely, you just want to relax in them and soak it all up. The rooms are spacious, well-appointed, and lovely. Okay, so enough about the stunning... More

Excellent, distinguished accommodations in a treasured site next to, almost adjoining the Castela Sao Jorge. There were peacocks resting on the rooftop as we looked out the window of our room. All staff were very kind, helpful and multilingual. We came as part of the Heritage Hotel system. Other hotels in this group were also very pleasant. Thank you! to... More

We had a little trouble finding this gem of a hotel but once we did, we realized it was worth the trouble! This boutique hotel is a little oasis in an area that is saturated with tourists. We were exhausted when we arrived but were greeted with two glasses and a bottle of port. What a lovely welcome...The staff was... More

Every evening, before my candle-lit bath, while enjoying a complimentary glass of Port wine, after a long day exploring the sights, tastes AND HILLS of Lisbon, I'd enjoy the solitude of the lobby after midnight while relaxing deep in thought on the couch... I'd play the tape of my day back in my mind, look around at the tasteful decor... More

We spent our last night in Portugal in Solar do Castelo, and it was a night well spent. The location of the hotel allowed for us to pack our last day in Lisbon full of activity as we explored the castle and wandered around the Alfama listening to Fado. The historic nature of the hotel was very cool. We could... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for staying with us and for your review. We are particularly pleased that you enjoyed seeing various artifacts, from the iron age until the 18th Century, when the house was built. The existing house was known as the Palacete das Cozinhas (Kitchen’s Little Palace) because it was built in the place where the Royal... More

This unique hotel was perfect for an overnight in Lisbon. We arrived before check-in, but the staff kept our luggage safe, and the invited us have tea & coffee & a snack. While our room was readied we were able to walk the few steps to the castle of Sao Jorge and enjoy wonderful views of the city, its lovely... More

The hotel is set in the Sao Jorge part of Lisbon and is a stones throw from the Castle. Very atmospheric and comfortable hotel with friendly and helpful staff- thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Belem is a must see. Watch out for pickpockets and taking taxis from the airport - we were ripped off to the tune of 30 euros to... More
