This small hotel is located along a narrow cobbled street on the top of one of Lisbon's seven hills. We had a lovely experience staying in a spacious, beautifully furnished suite with an outside terrace that overlooked other scenic parts of Lisbon. All the amenities and comforts were here in room and bathroom; the desk staff was superb. Our room... More

Super friendly staff and extremely helpful.Very clean and comfortable. We got upgraded to a suite, it was huge. Breakfast was included and was very good. Hotel is in the old section of town, with steep hills. We would stay at this hotel again without hesitation. Great Boutique hotel.

We loved everything about this hotel. The staff was wonderful, welcoming and helpful and our room was very comfortable and spacious. We loved the neighborhood-it felt as if we were living in a small town. The street in front of the hotel is only open to local traffic and taxis, so it is very quiet at night. We were leaving...

This hotel was a mixed bag. The location near the castle is great, affording nice views of the city while walking to and from the hotel. We had a view of the opposite hillside from our balcony but the hotel is undergoing some construction in front and a giant crane obscured our view and towered above our balcony. (Recommend you...

This is a beautiful hotel in a great location not far from the castle. We had requested a room on a high floor with a view and that is exactly what we got - a lovely, spacious room with wall to wall windows and a superb outlook over the city. We stayed for 4 nights and slept very well -... More

Beautiful large room with panoramic view of Castle area (not of Castle). Staff is friendly and helpful. Our bathroom has a bathtub/shower (I love baths). We were gifted a bottle of port as a welcome gift. Quiet. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. (Buy cork - a renewable resource. Bracelets make great gifts.) Wifi works well; breakfast is delicious; linens... 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.
