Travelers' Choice
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.

A gorgeous hotel with fabulous service and great views. We had a lovely room with garden views that looked out at the sea. The room itself was very nice and comfortable with a large and beautiful bathroom. The staff and service throughout our stay were impeccable, always giving the extra effort. The dinner at Lapa restaurant was also one of our favorite on our entire trip to Portugal. Be aware that most of the sights in Lisbon are a cab ride away, as there's not too much within walking distance. But it's worth the extra effort.

This hotel, the staff, the location the rooms do not disappoint. I was totally surprised. This hotel provides amazing views, luxurious traditional rooms that are spacious and bathrooms are well supplied. I cannot say enough about the warm, helpful, and professional staff. You are greeted by smiling helpful reception and concierge staff when you check in. I have stayed in many world class hotels and this is definitely one of the best. This was my first visit to Lisbon and absolutely loved it. I will be back. Thank you for a wonderful stay and a very happy customer. A++++++

This is a wonderful hotel. We stayed for 2 weeks in September and had a fabulous experience. The rooms are comfortable, quiet, elegant, and well-appointed. The staff are friendly and eager to help. The concierge staff were so accommodating, helping us with travel suggestions and restaurant reservations, and even managing to get back a jacket we had left behind at a restaurant (not a close restaurant, either). The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, but within walking or short uber distance of restaurants and many sites. We loved the outdoor pool, which allowed us relaxation time if we didn't feel like sightseeing. The spa was also great.

The Lapa Palace is a mix of old world charm and modern amenities. The front desk staff is incredible and knowledgeable. It's the little touches that make this a five-star hotel. The bottles of water provided on your way out for a day of sightseeing. The custom eggs cooked at breakfast exactly how you want them. The wonderful spa has skilled masseuses and a heated indoor pool. The regular rooms come with a lovely balcony overlooking the outdoor pool. Our room had a king size bed, plenty of closet space, a desk, a safe, mini fridge, and a spacious bathroom with a separate tub and separate walk in shower. The rooms are decorated in an old-fashioned luxury style with lots of marble, sconces and old world touches integrated with a modern coffee machine, adaptable plugs for US phone chargers, etc. The hotel is not within walking distance of much being located up on a hill, so get breakfast included when you book a room as it's well worth it. There is a fabulous restaurant near by - Come Prima - that is possibly the best Italian food in Lisbon. You can walk there but note it's downhill meaning it's all uphill on the way back! This is a full service resort with all of the amenities and services of same. If you are looking for luxury in an old world ambiance in Lisbon, this is the place.

The hotel is a short Taxi ride from all major attractions. Lisbon has UBER so its good and cheap rides. All the rooms are quiet. The rooms in this Palace Hotel are huge compared to other hotels. Staff is very well trained and welcoming. Breakfast has lots of options and a menu to choose from and the pool is stunning. Concierge very efficient. I will stay there again and this hotel is recommended to all.

We stayed here for 5 nights for our 3 year wedding anniversary. We'll come back to Lisbon purely just to stay at this amazing hotel again. The staff made the holiday even more special for us. At the concierge Rui, Hugo and Fillipe were absolutely amazing, so helpful and knowledgeble, they gave us so many good recommendations both for sightseeing and places to eat. They went above and beyond to book us some of the best restaurants in the city. The hotel has a great poolbar with incredible attentive staff especially Erik, Bruno and Fransisco. Carina at reception was super nice and Ines was the fastest room service staff I've ever seen. The hotel bar was really nice especially when the incredible pianist was playing, with a very knowledgable barman, Paulo, who made us some spectacular drinks. Thanks to you all.

As soon as we arrived the staff couldn’t do enough for us. Beautiful building and lovely grounds and pool. Our room had a stunning view over the gardens out to the old town and river. We really enjoyed the pianist in the bar one night. This is definitely now our go to hotel in Lisbon. The hotel surprised us with a cake and fizz for my birthday which exceeded our expectations. Special mention to the pool waiter who went above and beyond to get us drinks when they were closing and the doormen for great interaction with our two children. Beautifully decorated , old school style which we love and very appropriate for the building. Hotel bar/restaurant quite expensive (often the case in 5* hotels) but we will definitely be back .

mostly i liked the pool area,very relaxing and calm and green.Sun beds are very comfy with pillows .There were always free sun beds in the pool.Other guest are also very intelligent people and they were very quiet.Overal perfect for relax.No music ,which i love it. Room was also very nice.I don’t like the style of the hotel and prefer more modern style but this hotel was so charming.There were marble everywhere and i love marble.Staff was so so kind.I felt like home.Breakfast was very good,with enough fruits like mango ,pineapple and etc,they had soya ,almond and different kind of milk. Room service was fast.Bed in the room was comfortable. i didn’t like the noise from machine cutting the grass in the morning and the machine with which they clean the leaves.I believe there is a much cheaper ,faster and less noise way to clean the leaves from the tiles.Just ask one of your cleaning ladies to sweep.Also i didn’t like we had so much mosquitos in the room and we had to sleep with closed windows in the night,also on the pool there were so many fly and bee,maybe they need to spray from time to time .Food choices on the pool was limited .Overall we liked the hotel very much ,just these are some details which maybe are not important for everyone but overall beautiful hotel and amazing service

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Lapa Palace from July 19 - July 24 on our first visit to Lisbon. The beauty of the property is matched by the excellence and good-natured attentiveness of the entire staff. Our special thanks to Hugo (the day concierge) and Rui (the evening concierge): both gentlemen went above & beyond in helping us plan our daily itineraries, securing difficult-to-get dinner reservations ('SEEN Lisboa by Olivier' knocked our socks off) and much more. Thanks also to Daniel, the top-notch driver recommended by the hotel who provided us with a Wiki's worth of history & anecdotes during our day trip to beautiful Sintra. Lisboans are a very engaging and friendly people, we miss them already! The property itself is one of a kind; it is indeed a palace. Beautiful marble everywhere. The outdoor pool is a perfectly-heated gem completely surrounded by high-quality, carefully -manicured grass, with good strong sun until quite late in the day. Michelin-starred restaurant on-site. The beautiful bar and terrace area are expertly overseen. Our room (king bed with terrace, 6th floor) offered a full view of the pool, fish pond and Tagus river. The property is whisper quiet, chill as can be. As an example of the attentiveness to detail we experienced, the hotel surprised us with champagne and a beautiful cake for my wife's birthday. We found that graceful flourishes such as this are typical of the Lapa Palace, which more than lives up to its 5-star billing. Our sincere thanks to the wonderful staff members who made our stay so enjoyable, we can't wait to visit again!
