Lonely Planet review

Honeymooners and hopeless romantics flock to this lemon-fronted mansion, sitting pretty next to hilltop Castelo de São Jorge. Unwind by the courtyard fountain, get some quality shut-eye in your plush room and be the first at the castle in the morning.

Sleek and intimate, this 18th-century mansion is the stuff of pure fairytale. The serene inner courtyard feels a zillion miles away from the castle's camera-toting masses with its gurgling fountain and clipped box hedges. Portuguese interior designer Graça Viterbo has put her funky stamp on the boutique hotel's 14 rooms, the result: country retreat meets 21st-century slicker, with earthy tones, antique furnishings and exposed stone. The hotel's diminutive size means the affable staff knows guests by name. When the sun shines, take a table in the courtyard for breakfast.

Our independent authors have visited Solar do Castelo and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Lisbon.

Description provided by property

Set around an inner courtyard of an 18th-century mansion, this eco-hotel is located within the walls of St. Jorge's Castle. It features rooms with free Wi-Fi in the historic Alfama neighbourhood.

All double-glazed rooms at the Castelo feature wood floors and a contemporary classic décor. They all come with satellite flat-screen TV and a DVD player. The bathroom has a bathtub and robes.

During evenings, Solar’s elegant lounge area with original stone walls is a pleasant place to retreat with a drink from the bar. In the daytime, guests can relax to the sound of splashing water by the courtyard’s fountain.

Solar do Castelo is just a 10-minute walk from the Lisbon city centre, with its many restaurants and access to the metro. Praça do Comercio riverfront square is less than 1 km away.
