“Beautiful hotel, nice staff, excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2011

Lapa Palace is a ...palace. With beautiful gardens and superb interiors, perched on top of a hill in the quiet (and slightly remote) diplomatic quarter of Lisbon, with a gorgeous view of the Tagus...

The staff is well trained and friendly, the facilities are excellent and the rooms large, comfortable and beautiful.

Not much else to say - one of the best hotels we ever stayed in, truly worthy of its 5 star rating and renown.

The Lapa Palace is a 5 star, grand hotel. Our rooms were spectacular, and the bathroom was filled up with very nice soaps and was spacious. Our deck was facing the breathtaking gardens. The service was helpful and friendly. It was near all of these nice shops and you could take long walks on the hill. We loved the Lapa Palace and hope to return.

Stayed here 3 nights over New Year and it proved to be the perfect choice. Got upgraded upon arrival to a room with amazing sea view. Service was flawless without being stiff or snobbish. Had 3 treatments at the spa, all of them great. Good food, breakfast and room service. Location is a little outside city center, but taxi's are cheap and there is absolutely no traffic noise on the property. Only minor downside was that you had to pay for wireless internet. Otherwise highly recommended.

This is a rare combination of a hotel equally suited for business travellers and families alike. It proved to be the ideal place to stay with a small child, despite clearly also being popular with the business traveller community.

The pool and (small) kids' playground were an ideal respite after a hot day of sightseeing in Lisbon, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the place very much had the feeling of an 'oasis' away from the big city. The location is possibly the only drawback, you'll need a 10 min taxi ride or 20 mins on the lovely tram to get to the city centre, but this is more then compensated by the quality of the hotel and its staff.

We ate several times at the main restaurant, which was quite sophisticated (and expensive), but all the staff were more than happy with a small girl amongst the guests.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for three nights and were very pleased with the whole experience. The room was lovely and the decor of the whole hotel was old world elegant. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood close to embassies and although it is not close to the downtown area of Lisbon, downtown is a short taxi ride away. What really stood out at the hotel was the food. We had one lunch and one dinner at the hotel and the food at both was remarkable. Saw many of the other top hotels in our journeys around town and saw that many of them such as the Four Seasons are in the characterless modern section of Lisbon. Would recommend the Lapa Palace over any of these.

We only had one night to spend in Lisbon, and this turned out to be the perfect place. Our room was beautiful, clean and quiet with a luxurious bathroom, the pool is very nice and the dinning is fabulous. We had the most amazing lunch overlooking the beautiful red roofs of Lisbon. Loved the food and the service. A great place to stay in Lisbon.
One thing: do not leave Lisbon without visiting Sintra. It's only a 30 minutes drive and it's fabulous!!
