This is in the castle area, reached by some very narrow streets (our incoming taxi stopped as the street narrowed, and a nearby restaurateur phoned the hotel who came and collected us and our luggage in a little golf cart); on our departure, the taxi was brave enough to come up the narrow streets right to the hotel door!
As others have noted, the surrounding area is quite busy with tourists during the day, but very quiet at night when the castle is shut.
Our room was right at the top of the hotel in the old building, with a very good view.
Neither the room nor bathroom were particularly large, but they were comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. The décor was traditional and very pleasant.
The breakfast buffet offered a very good selection considering the small size of the hotel.
There is no restaurant, but reception staff were very helpful and made suggestions for nearby restaurants.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Solar Do Castelo is truly a romantic shelter in the birthplace of Lisbon - within the walls of São Jorge Castle at the top of Alfama. It is a small 18-century mansion surrounding a noble patio, built on the site of the former kitchens of the Royal Palace. Apart from the genuine antiques, most part of the furniture was specially designed for the hotel in a medieval contemporary style. In this magical place you will find welcoming rooms offering complete modern day comfort. ... more less
