The Lapa Palace Hotel is located in the diplomatic district of Lisbon, close to a number of embassies. Although in a nice area, it's a little bit far from sightseeing and dining spots, a 15 min / EUR 8 taxi ride one way.
The hotel itself has the aura of a classical grand hotel. The interior is decorated with classical furniture. The staff offers formal, old school service on a very high level. The rooms reflect the style of the hotel and are nice, large and clean, with everything in good condition. Only the free W-LAN service is somewhat spotty and requires login each time you disconnect. The higher floors offer a nice river view, whereas the rooms on lower floors have a view of the garden and pool area, which by itself is very nice as well.
Breakfast is ok, but doesn't match the otherwise high quality of food and services provided. Drinks, food and service in the piano bar are very good, and food in the restaurant is excellent too.
The downside of all is that it's not really a bargain. You get what you pay for, not less, but also not more.
