We've stayed for 3 nights at Solar do Castelo - just beside the beatiful medieval castle Castelo Sao Jorge in the center of Lisbon. It is a perfect place to relax while visiting Lisbon. Althogh it is just above the Alfama, it is remarkably quiet and peaceful. Many sight, restaurants and Bars are in walking distance and a bus-stop to... More

We stayed three nights in the beautiful Solar do Castelo Hotel in June 2016. The property was charming and gorgeously decorated. Great location at the top of the hill within the castle walls. Our suite was comfortable and we had plenty of room to move around the space. Breakfast buffet was nice and we enjoyed the honesty bar one evening... More

Loved staying here. Fabulous location next to the castle, right at the top of the old town and above all the bustle of the city. Friendly and super-helpful staff, complimentary decanters of port in each room as well as 24/7 coffee and cakes. Buffet breakfast was a feast, and the beautiful courtyard one of the most relaxing places to chill... More

Situated within the walls of the castle, in what used to be the Royal kitchen, you will find this historic hotel. The architect artfully incorporated some of the castle walls and the cistern into the design of the hotel while featuring Windows, olive trees, and plenty of natural light.Solar is impeccably clean and tidy. The staff warm, welcoming, and knowledgable.... More

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

Perfect place to stay, lovely outlook and surroundings. Lots of restaurants and supermarket nearby. Staff were lovely and very helpful and nothing was too difficult. Breakfast was fantastic and the honesty bar was a great addition.

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

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.
