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.

Room was very clean, but both the bathroom and balcony were small. I do not recommend the food via the room service as it was not good. Dinner at the restaurant in the hotel, we had the entire restaurant to ourselves as we were the only guests but the food was good. Spa service was very nice.

For those who love this kind of hotels is the best place. The most important thing is that you can sleep in peace away from the noise of the town. Of course during Corona all is different, but the quality of sleep is really appreciated. Breakfast a la carte because of covid, but it is fine anyway. We enjoyed our time here.

We didn’t stay here but my in-laws did and we spent some time with them and visited the bar, pool and spa. This isn’t our type of place but it was very nice. The hotel is clean and nicely decorated. The staff were extremely helpful and we had a nice time chatting with the bartender. The bar serves up some old school vibes which we loved along with delicious albeit it expensive cocktails. We also had a meal in the bar which tasted really good and they accommodated our young child as well. The mother-in-law and I enjoyed some lovely massages while the rest of the family swam, the facilities were great and again the staff were lovely.

The hotel is in an excellent location and all the staff were extremely pleasant. The food at breakfast and the range and choice is superb but one does find one's self constantly interrupted by staff who are cleaning plates as you are taking your last mouthful. The indoor pool area is small but adequate. The steam bath and sauna are small but fit for purpose. The gymnasium is reasonably well kitted out. The shiatsu massage in the Wellness Centre is one of the best that I have had. The rooms are fine and the bathroom is of a good size. The views from the hotel to the Tagus are beautiful. The gardens are well-tended. I would return against if on business in Lisbon. Because the property is 5* graded and listed in "The Leading Hotels of the World" one is obliged to pick out the smallest items for consideration. As follows: 1. Ashtrays in the Smoking Room are not regularly attended to 2. Ashtray on the room balcony is not emptied on a daily basis 3. The room safe is too small for a 5* property 4. The complimentary water bottles should be placed in the fridge and not in full sunlight on the room desk 5. The in-room fruit basket contained spoiled fruit on consecutive days and was not removed until it was pointed out 6. The bar service ceases at 1730 on certain days with no alternatives 7. The reception area is freezing cold and if one is working during early morning or late evening the open doors adversely affect the temperature no matter where one sits in 8. Soundproofing in rooms needs significant improvement, standard chat and noise from the neighbouring room was clearly and annoyingly audible at all times 9. The noise from the piano bar is clearly audible in the room even some distance from the piano bar and late into the night 10. There is a consistent noise of rave music on the docks clearly audible in the room 11. There is congestion at the entrance to the property for both cars and arrival in taxis 12. The flagstone steps around the pool area are very poorly designed and dangerous 13. The room service menu is somewhat limited
