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

Solar do Castelo is a charming hotel option when staying in Lisbon. Only 1 km walking distance from the center of town (granted directly down or up hill), it also boasts some spectacular views. You definitely feel the personal touch here as there are just a few very unique rooms. We opted for a Mansarda room, which was at the... More

Perfect stay, hotel is wonderful and the staff could not have been better. The hotel location is excellent, with very interesting building which has been brought up to contemporary standards in a very clever way. It very much felt like a great home for the weekend.

Lovely hotel in the heart of the gorgeous cobbled Castelo district, right next to the castle. Very pretty and comfortable room. Lovely courtyard to enjoy the sun. Excellent varied breakfast, available until 12pm. Staff were brilliant, all really friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations, bookings etc. Honesty bar, tea and coffee and pastries available in the afternoon/evening and complimentary port...

A historic quiet hotel! We liked the location nearby Castelo De Sao Jorge. Good service, and nice clean rooms. It was nice to sit outside in the backyard. We would like to come back! We really enjoyed our stay!

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
