Very nice boutique hotel situated next to the Castle grounds but in a nice quiet part. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Loved the free tea and coffee and snacks they made available all day. Honesty bar was also a nice touch. Streets in this area are all cobbled so flat shoes highly recommended and there are some quite steep... More

Heaven In a boutique hotel in what used to be the Kings kitchen some 200 years ago. Higher than here you can`t go and right next to the castle, serenety and abience in a perfect setting. With live sound effects from the nearby Peacocks that still live in the Kings garden in and around the hotel. A quiet courtyard with... More

perfect location, beautiful room, terrific staff -- all in all excellent stay. staying on the hill near the castle is only a short (and cheap) cab ride to the other parts of town and is such a quaint and unique place to spend a weekend.

From the moment we stepped into this little gem we knew that we would love it! The hotel is tucked alongside the walls of St George's Castle high up in the historic Alfama district at the top of a maze of tiny cobbled lanes decorated with washing lines and cages of chirruping canaries, budgies and finches - the real Lisbon!...

Fantastic place! Great staff and the room small but perfectly formed. Location is stunning...shared walls with the castle and peacocks all around. Great breakfast and the honesty bar is a great idea. We will definitely be back.

....certainly book it if you love ancient stuff in a modern setting. The use of modern woods all over the hotel contributes to a very warm finish. Rooms had everything needed. I could see the castle from my window. All in all: Excellent. PS: Wifi was sporadic the first night but worked well after that.

We enjoyed this quiet, clean and comfortable hotel right in the part of Lisbon we wanted to visit. The staff were efficient, helpful and friendly. The peacocks were a nice surprise! We enjoyed the complimentary port in our room!!

My partner and I spent 4 nights here and were delighted with our choice. The location was perfect for us, quiet and picturesque, though a steep climb so not ideal for people less mobile. Our room was lovely, the buffet breakfast was extensive and top quality, setting us up nicely for our stomping round the City. Staff were charming and... More

Breakfast could be taken outside in the courtyard whilst you watched the peacocks roaming round.The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel... More

Not your usual city centre hotel...small, beautiful, friendly, quiet, comfortable... Lovely breakfast available until 12md, free tea and coffee thereafter and an honesty bar too. Staff very friendly, professional and helpful. Returned home fitter after all the walking up and down the hill needed to get anywhere, but that just provided a good excuse to have a pastry with coffee.... More
