This was our last stop in Europe, touring mostly Spain. We only had a few days in Lisbon but the staff, especially Ine's at the front desk helped us make the most of it with advice on eating where locals eat and short cuts to get around the hills, like where the hidden elevators are in town and where to...

This is deep in atmospheric Alfama, a stone's throw from the Castello. Rooms are spacious and impeccably clean. Reception are hugely helpful and knowledgeable. They directed us to great local restaurants, advised us on trams, provided parking, all with a smile. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. Recommended.

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel, lovely rooms and a great breakfast. It could appear that this hotel is a little away from the centre, but in reality it is pretty close either walking or by tram (12 or 28). Do not be tempted to take the Aerobus from the airport, it does not stop close, the taxi was...

After 6 nights I was sad to leave. This is a well run hotel, elegant rooms, friendly service and the best view imaginable. Breath taking day or night.

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.
