#20 of 310 hotels in Lisbon
Built in the 19th-century, this luxurious palace is nestled on a hilltop overlooking the Tagus River and presents guests with the ideal base for an unforgettable stay in Lisbon. Tucked away in the city's diplomatic quarter, Lapa Palace is set in a beautiful sub-tropical garden. Sunbathe on a lounger in the pool area or pay a visit to the Spa, where you can treat yourself to hours of relaxation in the sauna. Traditional decor and elegant designs make each of the rooms a haven after a day of work or sightseeing. Marvel at panoramic views from the comfort of your balcony or enjoy a long bath in your marble bathroom. Thanks to the palace's convenient location, central Lisbon is only a short drive away. Park your car for free on site and indulge in fresh seafood at the restaurant. In the meantime, the concierge is happy to arrange various services for you, including the use of the VIP room facilities.

We had a lovely 3 night stay in a palace room on the 6th floor. The staff were very welcoming. Room was spacious and clean albeit the balcony was tiny. We had a lovely view of the garden and city. Bed was super comfy. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. Hotel is located about 35 min walk to the centre. The hotel has free car parking which was key for us.

My family and I (a party of five adults) stayed at the Lapa for 11 nights in August 2021 during two separate stays. We had stayed at The Lapa several times in the past. All covid-19 safety measures are in place and the hotel is operating perfectly. The morning breakfast has been moved to the terrace overlooking the garden from where, thanks to some tactical pruning of a few branches on a majestic tree, one now has a panoramic view of the city toward the São Jorge Castle. Outstanding! The rooms are still excellent, bathrooms are marble (we do wish the all the rooms had stand alone showers in addition to tubs, but many do). If you enjoy staying in classic hotels that have been modernised up to the point that they don't lose their charm, this is the place. The service is genuine and from the heart. Employees take pride in their hotel and their roles in making it work. Special thanks to Filipa and her colleagues at Reception, Paulo and his pals in The Bar/Terrace, and the new general manager who has put the Lapa right where it belongs as Portugal shakes off the pandemic: The #1 Hotel in Portugal. Only one suggestion, as soon as you can please bring back the gentleman who plays the piano in the Bar in the evenings.

Room was very clean, but both the bathroom and balcony were small. I do not recommend the food via the room service as it was not good. Dinner at the restaurant in the hotel, we had the entire restaurant to ourselves as we were the only guests but the food was good. Spa service was very nice.

For those who love this kind of hotels is the best place. The most important thing is that you can sleep in peace away from the noise of the town. Of course during Corona all is different, but the quality of sleep is really appreciated. Breakfast a la carte because of covid, but it is fine anyway. We enjoyed our time here.
