This place does everything it says it does on the box. It has seen better days and needs a tidy up here and there but there is nothing to complain about. Indeed the service is excellent from beginning to end. Breakfast on the sun sheltered terrace is relaxing and easy. A light lunch can be arranged by the pool and...

The hotel doesnt match the level of five-star hotel and the name "luxury". Unfortunately, staying in this hotel a week, my husband and I were faced many unpleasant moments. The hotel staff are inhospitable, rude and they behave like a snobs. The only people who were always willing to help and always smiling and greeting guests - are concierge and...

We have just got back from a fantastic four and half days in Lisbon staying here. It is just an amazing hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are lovely (we paid slightly more for a river view room), the breakfast on our own private balcony bought in by room service everyday was so special and the...

This hotel was extremely comfortable and elegant. Although updated with all the modern conveniences it has retained it's old world charm. I can't say enough about the staff either. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and taken care of. Since the hotel is not in the city center we had to use a cab for traveling, however it...

We chose the hotel after reading the Trip advisor reviews and were prepared to take a taxi to get to the main touristic places. The cost is from 5 to 7 euro. The hotel is wonderful. The slight distance from the city center makes it a little oasis. The territory around the swimming pool is fantastic. The pool and the...

Just want to put in a good word for Ricardo Monteiro. Even though Ricardo was just doing his job, his help with opening up my safe, which I goofed up, was immediate and calming. I was meeting a tour so time was very important. Thank you Ricardo.

Enjoyed a six night holiday based in this hotel. Super room in 'older wing' with large balcony, the service from all staff was outstanding including recommendations for local restaurants that were 1st rate. Concierge service just the right balance of humor , knowledge & interest to guide us gently to seeing the best of Lisbon. Hotel is a little off...

The Lapa Palace is an outstanding older style luxury hotel with style and excellent service. It is expensive but is also very exclusive and everything is of the highest quality. The pool and gardens are really beautiful as are all the public areas. The bar and restaurant offer very friendly and yet impeccable service with food and drink of the...

Took the GF for a surprise trip which culminated in our stay here. Right from the beginning we were enamored with the classic feel of the hotel and the typical Portuguese good service. The staff were more than very helpful and the rooms were absolutely perfect for us. There was more than enough for us to choose from food-wise and...

The Lapa Palace hotel is high on one of the seven hills of Lisbon in embassy-land. It was sad that we worked non-stop for three days; even so it was good to look out on the gardens with waterfalls, pools and mature trees, with the sea beyond. I arrived in the evening and had a room-service meal as I prepared...

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.

In the meantime, the concierge is happy to arrange various services for you, including the use of the VIP room facilities. ... more   less
