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 !!!

I don't understand the negative reviews. We spent 3 nights at the Palacio Belmonte. We generally stay in 5L hotels and resorts and the Palacio did not disappoint. The palace is beautiful. Our suite was large, very well appointed, immaculate, and authentic. The only minor complaint would be that the large, modern, marble bath did not have a shower (only a hand shower in the tub). The service was exceptional and efficient. The front desk staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and always available. This property is not for everyone; if you are looking for modern glitzy luxury do not stay here, But if you want to experience a fabulous restored palace with incredible views, amenities and service, we strongly recommend.

We spent a magical 6 nights at Palacio Belomonte in the Amadeo de Souza Cardoso suite. PB is way more than a boutique hotel - it is an experience that most hotels could only dream of offering. The building dates back to the 15th century, and it has been so perfectly preserved, that one almost feels if that's all the architecture / frescoes of original tiles one saw in Lisbon; it would be enough. The hotel features contemporary touches and interesting art, making for a truly tasteful aesthetic. The hotel features a lovely courtyard garden where one can have breakfast / a drink; although we were served most mornings on our beautiful bedroom terrace framed with an established bougainvillea bush. The service was so thoughtful, with the concierge service giving insider tips that made the trip all the more meaningful, and easier to navigate. Special thanks to Mohammed and Faissel for all they did for us - and in fact to the whole PB team! The hotel is central, but tucked away at the same time; so everything is easily accessible, but the hotel has a sense of complete privacy. If you are looking for a true gem in a remarkable boutique hotel; this is the stay for you!

Palácio Belmonte is not a hotel, it’s a cultural landmark, a refined experience and a luxury destination. It is one of the most prestigious spaces in Lisbon and probably one of the most exceptional places in the world where culture, architecture, heritage, art, style, and charm collide. Overlooking the Fundação Ricardo do Espírito Santo Silva and the Church of São Vicente of Fora, Palácio Belmonte is perched on the São Jorge Castle’s hills, facing the river, in the heart of the über charming fado district of Alfama. It's a magical place. Guests access it through a grand and discreet entrance which overlooks a private terrace and charming café (which belongs to Palácio Belmonte). Having breakfast on the garden or on the suite’s terraces, the very chic Aqua di Parma toiletry products in all the rooms including the swimming pool house, the impeccable, friendly yet discreet staff and private chauffeur will make your stay unforgettable.

I would not reccomend anyone to stay in this hotel. The hotel has a beautifuly designed website (the very reason I picked it) , but sadly aside from the web design there is nothing else positive to say about this place. In fact the website is very misleading. To start with it’s very difficult to find this hotel and impossible to use the car in the area as it’s strictly pedestrian area in a middle of the historical district . The hotel does NOT notify clients about this inconvenience in a timely manner. Finally upon arrival at the hotel I could not access the hotel as there is no one at entrance ( in addition hotel entrance is not indicated it’s just a blank red door) until the waiter from the cafe next door was nice enough to open the door for me with his key . There were NO ONE at the reception , despite me informing hotel about my arrival time. The next person I see after good 5-10 minutes ringing the front desk bell was one old guy , dressed like a slob, sporting a old jugging pants full of questionable stains that seen better days and can use a dry-cleaning or two . Turned out he was the owner , the only other person that works in a hotel was a bell boy that showed up after we brought our bags to the room . The owner’s opening line to me was not “hello” or “ welcome” , but instead it was “ you look mad , you should look at you self in a mirror “?! Upon my comment about the empty front desk despite my today’s email confirming my arrival time, the owner deadpaned that he does not read emails from the clients. Then the owner then barked that he can show me to my room and for me to carry the bags.???!!! My husband was still parking the car 3 blocks away , the closest spot from the hotel. Needless to say the rest of the checking in did not go well from that moment on. The owner was rude , hostile and obnoxious in addition to being a misogynist , he has no business being in a hospitality industry . Naturally after such an insulting greeting I was ready to cancel my reservation , but I was informed upon my inquiry that my only option for cancellation will be a “hotel credit “ valid for one year. As you can imagine I would not be ever rushing back to this place so it’s a mute point. For a hotel that charges its clients more than a thousands dollars per night , this hotel absolutely does not deliver quality of service and proper accommodation , to be put mildly . The room furnishings and bed linens were quite shabby and not in a good antique way and do not resemble the hotels website images . Food was beyond mediocre and there were no maid or room service. The owner clearly saves money on denying his guests proper service, it’s truly disgusting. Besides that we did not even a proper hello for $1000 a night!! Very disappointing
