A beautiful property with a professional staff off the beaten tourist path. The hotel is located in a hilltop neighborhood among the homes of diplomats. It's a short inexpensive taxi ride to central Lisbon. Fine food as well. Not for those who want to be where the action is.

I booked for a romantic weekend in Lisbon with my wife. We were not disappointed. Lovely room overlooking the river. Good catering although we only are breakfast mostly. Lisbon it's full of great places for lunch and dinner.

Spectacular river views, impeccable food and very helpful staff. Lovely breakfast buffet, served in a delightful courtyard. The only drawbaxk to this exquisite location is the proximaty to the center of Lisbon. I would prefer this hotel for a quiet respite from city noise.

We stayed here with our 2 children in an interconnecting room. It's in a lovely quiet area of Lisbon & some of the rooms have good views over the garden & onto the river. We chose it mainly for quiet location & because it had an indoor & outdoor pool (always fun for children). It has an old-world feeling. Lovely...

The staff were friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was varied and fresh, room service was great and we ate in the restaurant one evening and the food was first class. 15 minute stroll...

My family and I stayed at Lapa Palace during our trip to Lisbon in 2014. It was a stunning hotel with a beautiful interior and grounds, a fantastic gem, in the embassy district, which was very quiet. Not too far a walk, although with some hills, was the center of the neighborhood, with a beautiful park and more, and with...

A great place to relax, this place is quiet, has a beautiful garden and pool, a nice spa and gym with an indoor pool, extraordinary food and spacious rooms. It's not too near Barrio Alto, which makes it very peaceful at high. The staff is both helpful and friendly!

Just spent a weekend at this outstanding hotel. With classic traditional attention to detail, it's hard to fault the Lapa. How anyone can question its location beats me. In the elegant, quiet consular district it's a 7 euro taxi ride to both downtown Lisbon and the Belem area.....the two must visit districts. The gardens are beautifully maintained as well. Continental...

I stayed with my family of four including two young adults in two rooms on two different floors. Rooms were nice and perfectly agreeable. Breakfast was good but didn't vary much from day to day, but it was easy to get specialty coffees etc.. We were there the week before Christmas so it was very quiet and that may explain...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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.
