Stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. Really nice experience. Because of a special occasion for Our visit in Lissabon we where opgraded to suites upon arrival. All the staff where very helpfull. We would like to thank the receptionist Rui. Very good breakfast. The view from the room was outstanding.

It says it has view over the old castle but thats not true, the view is not the best. And, there is no terass like they say in the website but a few rooms on 3rd floor have terasses, thats it. Else it was a decent standard and nice staff. Breakfast was not the best but ok, a bit to... More

The room design is tasteful- in a traditional sense. I like the wallpaper & patterned carpeting. Good matching of faux- classical furniture. The lobby design is nothing to write home about. Very slow internet- would not even allow viewing of website photos. Largely clean, except shower curtain. When I requested a fresh curtain- without strong bacterial odor- housekeeping obligingly complied.... More

This hotel definitely made our trip to Lisbon very memorable. The hotel service attendant (Rui) took the time to explain the main attractions as well as the surrounding area- he was friendly, polite and suggested attractions that were worth visiting. Throughout the entire stay the service was impeccable. One of the drawbacks of rooms in Europe is usually hotel rooms... More

We stayed for a few nights in a superior double with terrace, hoping to get a similar experience to that depicted in the beautiful photographs on the hotel website. However we were disappointed by the reality, and found this hotel only average. Our room was on the second floor (room 205), and the view from the terrace was obstructed by... More

Ok hotel in alfama, clean, beige room. We booked the room because of the recommended view from the balcony, however there was no view from the second floor... Breakfast was okay but they kept running out of the most popular pastries (white rolls and croissants).

This hotel goes above and beyond personal service. I find the front staff amazingly helpful and friendly. I am currently here and the view is spectacular. They were nice enough to give me a view room. The room has a king size, comfortable bed and nice bedding. The a/c works great. The room is big as well as the bathroom.... More

The Olissipo Castelo looked very good on the website and I booked a four night stay in a suite with terrace as a honeymoon gift for my son and his wife. When they checked in on the first evening they found the room had furry white mould on one wall and the champagne I had ordered was cava in an... More

Decent place in convenient location. Clean and well maintained, helpful staff, good breakfast. But beware the "standard" rooms, which are far from 4-star quality despite the hotel's official rating. They're on the first floor with no views, not very comfortable bed (we had 2 twins pushed together), and nothing very special. Had we known, we would have sprung for one... More
