Simply spectacular - the property, the staff, the localtion - you are not going to find a better hotel for a holiday in Lisbon. Solar do Castelo is a very small and intimate hotel (only 14 rooms) that was exactly right for our 4 day city break. If you are prepared to get to grips with the bus service (737 from just outside the castle entrance ) down to the Praca Figueira you can go from there to literally anywhere in Lisbon (or further !). The staff went out of their way to make this one of the best short breaks we have had.
We had room 3 which overlooked the courtyard and it was perfect in every way. Lovely comfy bed and efficient air con were much appreciated. The en suite had Moulton and Brown Toileteries, big fluffy towels and complimentary bathrobe and slippers which made it feel quite luxurious.
Breakfast was served in the courtyard and there was a good choice with some of the best scrambled eggs that I have had. Lots of fruit, cheese and cold meats and the opportunity to squeeze your own orange juice! The different types of bread were especially good.
The location and the Peacocks add that special something and made this hotel perfect for us. I didnt want to leave and would happily return.
