Unique hotel in interesting location. Breakfast is very good. Rooms are nice, but small. The service is good. Overall, a great place to stay, but a little pricey. Difficult access for some taxis that will not take you to the hotel, but will drop you...More

Attentive staff, lovely garden, excellent breakfast and beautifully renovated historic buildings made this a great place to start our trip through Portugal. Only one small criticism: room was rather dark. Better reading lights needed!

About
Description
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 More 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. Less
