This hotel has a terrific location atop the Alfama district and under the great castle, whose entrance is a five-minute walk away. The area is very hilly, which is both charming and a challenge to the infirm. If you are in semi-decent shape, you will enjoy the narrow steep streets both coming and going to the hotel. Before you go,... More

We will return for sure to this gorgeous hotel abd nice service! It is exactly the place we are looking for. Location perfect and quite and historic. Situated near the castle and nice old streets. Although a touristic neighborhood, it does not bother beacause the hotel is situated in a corner in a dead end street. Limited number of rooms,... More

This hotel is just cool. It's right next to the castle. It has a very old castle feel to it. Very quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Location is the best if you want great views and to see the castle. Breakfast is really good. The Port wine was really nice on arrival. The only bad thing to say... More

The Solar da Castile, the castle kitchen, dates back to the 11th century, the original cistern survived the 1755 earthquake which destroyed most of the rest. It is a delightful rambling small hotel which is informal and efficient at the same time. The bar runs on an honour system. The roads her are narrow and unevenly cobbled and they are... More

This hotel is really special. Secluded location within the Castle walls makes Solar an oasis of calm in the midst of bustling Lisbon. Lots of restaurants within 15 minute (steep) walk and central Lisbon a 10 minute bus ride away. Our superior room was spacious, comfortable, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Service is impeccable and nothing is too much trouble.... More

Really cute spot in an interesting area, neat being connected to the castle. Just be prepared to walk up the hill as it is a bit out of downtown, so made for a good work out going up and down that hill. However being up and just outside of the bustle of the city also made for a quiet location.

The hotel is in a brilliant location close to the Castelo Sao Jorges and is an oasis of quiet and calm. An easy walk in to the main parts of Lisbon with some lovely restarounats close by. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The hotel is nice and relaxing. However, things nearby close at 7 pm. Alfama isn't still a distance away. If you're looking for a central location, I would stay elsewhere. The rooms are small, and not resort level amenities. The lobby area is nice with coffee and an honor bar. Also a great courtyard.

Great location and beautiful hotel! Friendly and helpful staff! Only complaint was that there are beautiful but loud peacocks that will wake you each morning. And no fan in the bathroom. Otherwise would recommend this hotel.

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for sharing your experience about your stay with us. We are happy that you found our hotel beautiful and that you particularly appreciated our helpful staff and our location in the castle village. The peacocks of S. Jorge Castle like to socialize with the residents but they are not the ideal companion (particularly during... More

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighborhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
