    Location 8.0 /10

    As its name suggests, the Solar Do Castelo is actually located inside the Lisbon castle grounds. It is also close to lots of restaurants and not far from the Se Cathedral and the district of Alfama. The airport is a 30 minute bus ride away.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The hotel has a grand total of 14 guest rooms (standard or superior category), each bearing the name of a king. Four of the standard rooms (16, 17, 18, and 19) have a balcony and their decor is all identical, with a colour scheme based on shades of grey, beige, ochre, and black. The end result is just as stylish as in the superior rooms; the only difference is that the latter are adorned with more decorative features. Fitted with parquet flooring, the rooms are equipped with a television, DVD player, free Wifi access, a telephone, and air conditioning. The bathrooms are decorated in a traditional style featuring azulejo tilework and marble and they all have a bathtub, except rooms 20 and 21, which have just a shower. The superior rooms are decorated in a traditional but refined manner, with parquet flooring, a wicker headboard, and antique furniture. They too have a television, a DVD player, free Wifi access, a hair dryer, and air conditioning. A free bottle of Port is offered in each of the rooms. It may be handy to know that 2 of the double rooms can be converted to sleep 3.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The building housing the Solar Do Castelo dates back to the 18th century, although a newer extension was added as recently as 2002. The owners have also bought a neighbouring building in which they plan to add 6 more guest rooms. The Solar do Castelo is sure to win you over. Its combination of authentic charm and refined, sophisticated decor makes it one of the most appealing places to stay for a few days in Lisbon. The owners have done a tasteful job of converting the premises, managing to hold onto the old while adding touches of modernity. Exposed stonework can be seen in the walls, while the furniture takes inspiration from Asia, the United Kingdom, and North Africa. Outside, there is a patio adorned with olive trees, plants, and ponds, providing a bit of respite from the summer heat. A few peacocks have even elected to live here. A room originally used for storing water has been adapted to house a little museum containing a few archaeological artefacts found in the house.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The breakfast room on the ground floor opens directly onto the garden patio, so you can choose to eat outside if you so wish. The room is furnished with various little tables and big leather sofas, as well as leather cushions to rest your feet on. There is also a small bar where wood and leather are the main decorative elements. At breakfast you will be served tea or coffee, and orange juice. There is a little restaurant nearby where you can go for dinner.

    To know

    The Solar do Castelo is the only hotel inside the castle grounds. A little golf buggy can come and collect you and your luggage and take you to the entrance. The Solar do Castelo hotel is classed as a historical monument.

        Hôtel très agréable grâce à son nombre de chambre (une quinzaine) et à l'accueil du personnel. Situé à côté du Château San José tout en haut, ça grimpe à Lisbonne. La porte ouverte on se retrouve dans un autre monde calme avec quelques vestiges. Le personnel très agréable fait son rôle d'office de tourisme très bien avec des bonnes adresses. La chambre certes petite possède tout le nécessaire avec une pièce très propre ainsi que la salle de bain et une bouteille de Porto ?

      The Mundial hotel is ideally located in the very heart of Lisbon. This large establishment (350 rooms) is the perfect place for groups or conferences, but there is not much in the way of family facilities or equipment.

      This three-star hotel has the advantage of being ideally located at the heart of Lisbon, just a stone's throw from the old town and with a metro station nearby. The rooms here are traditional but a great deal of effort has gone into the decor of the communal areas, namely the restaurant and the lobby bar. The 61 guest rooms offer a high level of amenities and there is even one room designed especially for allergy-sufferers.

      The Borges is the perfect pied-a-terre for those seeking to make the most of the Lisbon nightlife. Those looking for a little peace and quiet, on the other hand, had better look elsewhere, this hotel being more of a small boarding house where it's nice to rest and unwind after a hectic day.

      The Metropole is a small, charming and rather discrete hotel. It is ideally located on Rossio Square, which makes it easy to explore the city without wasting time getting around on public transport. If art deco is your thing, then you will probably find this establishment to your liking. If it isn't, however, you might find certain elements of the interior to be rather kitsch. It's a matter of taste!

      What better way to spend a holiday in Lisbon than finding yourself bang in the middle of the historic district of Chiado? If this sounds like your cup of tea, the Lisboa Regency Chiado is for you, but bear in mind that it does not have a restaurant or any facilities other than a bar. It is, nevertheless, the ideal place for a weekend in the Portuguese capital.

      An intimate and contemporary city boutique hotel with period Lisbon charm, the LX Boutique is great all-rounder.

A perfect option for couples and small groups of friends looking for a pleasant base to explore the rest of the city from without breaking the bank.

      The Tivoli Lisboa is one of the best five-star hotels we've had the pleasure of visiting in this city. For starters, it enjoys a prime location at the heart of the city on one of the most prestigious avenues in Lisbon, the Avenida da Liberdade. It really does have so many assets, including an outdoor pool set amid a very pleasant little botanical garden, not to mention a panoramic restaurant which offers exceptional views across the city. Welcome to a world of luxury where every last detail counts!

      This beautiful 17th century building used to be a convent and when staying at this hotel you will be able to feel its peculiar atmosphere. The owner, however, managed to subtly combine a simple and contemporary style with tokens of this building's religious past. If you are looking for some peace and quiet and hoping to spend a weekend in Lisbon reconnecting with yourself, then this is the place for you.

      Part of the local luxury hotel and restaurant group, Lagrimas, the Hotel da Estrela, is a small boutique hotel of 19 rooms located in a converted private home deep within Lisbon's narrow winding streets. Contemporary and pleasant, the highlight here, aside from the school themed décor, is the restaurant, where we sampled some of the best squid we have ever had the privilege of tasting on our travels across the world. A member of the Small Leading Hotels label, the hotel is indeed fully deserving of its reputation. An ideal place to stay for a wide-ranging clientele, from families to couples and due to its central location, most sights are within walking distance.
