We had stayed in Olissippo Lapa Palace for the first time in July 2016 and definitely will be staying in this beautiful, luxury hotel again. Hotel located in the wealthy quiet neighborhood of Lisbon, Portugal, 5 walking minutes away from the American Embassy and 10-15 minutes from the downtown of Lisbon by a car. It has a beautiful garden, luxury... More

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Everything was first rate. The staff was extremely professional, courteous, friendly and helpful. They picked us up at the cruise port and dropped us off at the airport in a plush town car. The grounds were magnificent. Being a former palace, it had all the ambiance of one. It made you... More

There is not one outstanding aspect of this hotel. Every phase is done with such grace that one feels perfection is easy and normal. The site itself is lovely, set in the Lapa district-- with its circular drive --its marble entry, all is serene. The warm bar serves light lunches and dinners, the restaurant is blessed with a terrific chef.... More

The hotel is beautifully decorated, spacious, comfortable rooms, a great breakfast, but the my favourite is the magnificent garden! We arrived late in the evening, so we only laid eyes on it early the next morning, the palm trees and the pool looked amazing in the sunshine. The staff is very friendly, they really make an effort to take good... More

My husband and I have just returned from another 5 day stay at this wonderful hotel. It truly is one of the best city hotels we have ever stayed in. We were, again, upgraded to a fabulous suite over looking the gardens and pool area. Spotlessly clean and everything replaced on a daily basis. The staff, especially around the pool,... More

The Olissippo Lapa Palace is beautifully situated on the hill overlooking the harbour close to Ponte 25 de April. A wonderful old style building, a quiet area and impeccable service makes this our hotel of choice for Lisbon. There is nothing to add to the many 5-star reviews that Olissippo Lapa Palace already has.

The Lapa Palace is a charming, luxurious oasis in the embassy area of Lisbon. Service is old-style impeccable, public areas are elegant, bedrooms are very comfortable with terraces and gorgeous views over the beautiful garden and the Rio Tejo. The hotel's outdoor pool is especially lovely - large, deep and warm. A superb breakfast is served in a charming courtyard.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in the 19th-century, this luxurious palace is nestled on a hilltop overlooking the Tagus River and presents guests with the ideal base for an unforgettable stay in Lisbon. Tucked away in the city's diplomatic quarter, Lapa Palace is set in a beautiful sub-tropical garden. Sunbathe on a lounger in the pool area or pay a visit to the Spa, where you can treat yourself to hours of relaxation in the sauna. Traditional decor and elegant designs make each of the rooms a haven after a day of work or sightseeing. Marvel at panoramic views from the comfort of your balcony or enjoy a long bath in your marble bathroom. Thanks to the palace's convenient location, central Lisbon is only a short drive away. Park your car for free on site and indulge in fresh seafood at the restaurant. In the meantime, the concierge is happy to arrange various services for you, including the use of the VIP room facilities. ... more   less
