We stayed at the Olissippo Castelo in 2008, and when we decided to visit Lisbon again this year we barely even considered any alternatives. The hotel is extremely well-maintained and presented, and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. We've stayed in both classes of room, and found them to be well-furnished and spotless. The buffet breakfast has an... More

Our room had a delightful big balcony, you were able to sleep with the balcony door open, lovely fresh air which we like. Staff were friendly and very very helpful. location is a mixture of... More

This hotel is elegant, offers great views and serves up an excellent breakfast. The location is perfect, close to historic sites and local color. Neighborhood is a bit rough around the edges, grafitti, and vacant structures, scant sidewalks and steep inclines (wear sensible shoes!) but has its charm. Check out the very informal cafe at the corner below which has... More

We recently stayed while celebrating our wedding anniversary and couldn't have asked for anything more. Very welcoming and helpful staff, we got great advice on what to visit within our time frame. We got upgraded to a suite and loved the balcony, especially when room service delivered a bottle of bubbles to enjoy! Breakfast was great, fresh produce, good quality... More

The staff are kind, the location is perfect, the room was perfectly fine. Call ahead if you're going to use their parking lot. The view outside the hotel is superb. You can walk to a lot of landmarks, buildings, restaurants, cafes. Not the hotel's fault, but if you're a sleep-with-windows-open type you might want to reconsider that here. The dogs... More

This is a friendly and clean hotel perfectly located for the Castelo area. One piece of advice is to take good flat walking shoes as the surrounding streets are cobbled. Breakfast is very nice with ample choice and the plus side is that is stays open until 11am. No early finishes here! Our room was clean and overlooked the city... More

Near the castle, perfect location for a tourist, despite you have to walk a bit uphill to reach it. Excellent rooms and breakfast service. Our room had a lovely balcony with an incredible view on the city of Lisbona. Very happy about this hotel. I strongly recommend it.

This hotel was beautiful and fun located in the Alfama district of Lisbon. It is the highest point of Lisbon so be prepared to do some walking up and down. We loved the challenge. The castle was right behind our hotel and we had great views of Lisbon from our room. They upgraded us to a suite that was very... More
