Lonely Planet review
Up the cobbled hill lies this bubblegum-pink hotel offering sweeping views and silent nights. The spacious rooms are classically elegant with huge windows, deep-pile carpets and sparkly marble bathrooms; pick one on the 3rd floor for a private veranda. Wi-fi and a hearty breakfast are other pluses.
Our independent authors have visited Olissippo Castelo and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Lisbon.
