At the Belmonte there is no crowd, no noise, no chocolate on the pillow, no television, just fresh air, space, light, your own laughter and music. For an experience beyond compare, far back to our roots, to our childhood, to fantasy, let Palacio Belmonte be your house while discovering the wonderland of Portugal. Palacio Belmonte offers 10 suites, all different, all unique, some with terraces, winter garden or built in a Roman tower with 360º view or in a Muslim one on top of a 40 meters high rock, all equipped with fully modern bathrooms, natural ventilation, a Mediterranean garden and black marble swimming pool to relax, read or dream. House of the Earl of Belmonte, Cabral and the Marquis of Atalaia for the past 500 years, the Belmonte is a stunning sculpture, a 2197 years synthesis of Portuguese history. It became a few years ago the House of a Landscape Collector. He then decided to open his house to a very few for whom luxury is synonymous of encountering one's emotions. Palacio Belmonte prides itself on delivering memorable unique customized experiences for those who choose to stay with us. For this reason Palacio Belmonte suggest experiences that can be personalized for you, whether it be a fabulous sunset in a yacht on the Tejo River, a private tour to unique architectural features of old Lisbon, your own private Fado singer, a special day out with wine, olive oil tastings and Lusitano horses in the Alentejo or maybe a dinner at the unique local "Tascas" in which you will experience the real authentic Portuguese hospitality. The Belmonte is the most veiled secret in Lisbon... And definitely a place to experience! History, Architecture, Culture, Sustainable Development... Here you will not find a standard accommodation but a single life option! While receiving the highest level of service, you will be merged by this deep philosophy of well being, exclusivity, simplicity, natural comfort, intimacy and introspection. Palacio Belmonte is a real alternative way of life... Come join us!

We actually did not know what will expect us : we thought it will be a standard 5 stars hotel as promoted ... It is not For example there is no actual parking there and using a rented car becomes an adventure. The hotel does really impress by style : there are a lot of spaces where one may spend time relaxing reading ,etc We had a suite with a bedroom located in a tower wherefrom there has been a panoramic, terrific view of the surrounding area including the Tagus river estuary. But to get there we had to step over a narrow , winding, strait stairs. The way up started , strangely from the bathroom which was large but with no walls whatsoever . On the other hand there has been the nice possibility to have breakfast on a terrace overlooking the river The most important advantage of the hotel's location is its proximity to the St George castle and the old Alfama quarter Finally : most of the negatives are compensated by the extraordinary kindness of the the few people who attend the front desk combining the functions of reception, concierge , bellboy ,etcetc

The Palacio Belmonte trades mainly on its beauty and a promise to make your stay as unbusiness-like as possible. On both counts it is wholly successful. Unfortunately if you're not a hotel you're a house, and this is not a well-run house. Now on the second day of our stay, the mishaps keep coming: our airport transfer was not arranged, noone knows whether our laundry has been done, our breakfast table was moved without warning to a dark corner, noone is ever entirely sure what the reservation status of our restaurants is, the shaving kit was not sent, the gin bottle in the bar is empty, etc. etc. What is sad is that so much of this is fixable. The staff are without fail utterly charming and with the right training are obviously capable of doing wonders. The house is beautiful but the often questionable decorative choices could be put right with the right eye. The balance between charm and efficiency is never easy. The Belmonte seems to have decided that because it offers the former, it can eschew the latter, and charge through the nose for it.

The hotels is in desperate need of reconstruction and management change. We left after one night, even though we paid for two. What a waste of great view and perfect position. We got "family suit" with very low ceilings. Ceiling in on of the bathroom did not allow my sons to stand while using the toilet. In general I can say that this place seems to be reconstructed about 40 years ago and no work was done since. Our breakfast table was set up not on one of the sunny terrace but in the corridor next to the door other guests used to access their rooms. The 4 of us got each one egg (sunny side up instead of ordered scrambled eggs) and each got one piece of bread. We eat while others pass by, including the, probably, owner smoking a cigar. He asked my sons if they got pancakes already. I have no idea what he was talking about, while smoking a cigar...

See a world without the weight of personal self-importance--the reflection is of the beauty around you. From the rooftop terraces, the River Tejo and the City of Lights is glowing below this magical fortress built in the 15th century.

For those wanting a truly special, very exclusive, blissful holiday experience in the heart of Lisbon’s Alfama Castle district, then a stay in one of the Palacio Belmonte’s beautifully restored, multi roomed suites, is just for you. This exclusive, courtyard palace hotel, just steps away from St Jorge’s Castle has it all, and more. Amazing privacy and exclusivity, the feel that you are a guest and have free reign in a Portuguese nobleman’s Palace, with it’s breath taking rooms, patios and views. A private garden and pool, an incredible sense of history, a public courtyard and wonderful coffee shop, a Michelin Star quality restaurant ( Leopold) and amazing breakfasts served on your private patio every morning ! If budget is not of concern, then book into one of the Palacio’s amazing suites and let this Palace, its many libraries, patios, Roman and moorish towers , late night honesty bar, many amazing lounges and games rooms, it’s quirky art collection and it’s tranquil garden, be your base to explore the best of Lisbon. This is no ordinary five star hotel experience, what a privilege, what a spoil, what a fantastic few days !!!
