We were welcomed gracefully by Nelson and later enjoyed breakfast outside. It was local, fresh and done exquisitely. The palace is gorgeous and there is an incredible attention to detail; it is impeccably decorated and thoughtfully restored. With the jet-lag, I was in a dream! The incredible honeymoon suite, "Padre Himalaya" was where we rested our heads. This three story...

Exellent place to stay in Lisbon for couples on a weekendtrip (with cash!). Choose a room with a roofterrace where you can have breakfast. Very nice views of the river and the old town. The small pool is geat in the afternoon. This is not a businesshotel. in order to enjoy this place you should be a slow traveller, then...

We visited Losbon at February 2013. The weather was fantastic. We enjoyed 3 sunny days. Palacio Belmonte is a very special place in Lisbon. Everything in the hotel reflects the personality of the owners. They are really special and unique people. During our stay we felt very comfortable. It was a home away of home experience. Every suite is different...

We just left Palacio Belmonte. This is not a typical high end hotel. You are staying in an impeccably restored mansion. The public areas are gorgeous and they are all available for your daily use. We chose to have breakfast every morning served in a large sitting room adorned with ancient Portuguese tiles. The breakfasts were perfect--eggs, ham, fresh fruit,...

Fantastic, Beautiful, Unique, Warm and Welcoming! This is up there with the best places i have ever stayed and is so much more than a 5star hotel. (it beggars belief that the four seasons is number 1 but given this has a smaller number of rooms I suppose it does not get the footfall) Back to the Palacio - you...

Sometimes in life, one just has to treat oneself to wonderful experiences! Staying for a week at Palacio Belmonte was such an experience. What a perfect way to experience Lisbon for the first time. The building and superb renovation by owner(Frederic) , speaks for itself. The staff( Maria,Nelson and Rita) were always pro-actively helpful and guided me to explore the...

This could be one of the most stunning destinations in Portugal. The Palacio sits near the top of the hill going up to the castle. It is almost secretive with a small doorway entrance from a courtyard which is also a thoroughfare. Inside it has been lovingly restored with great care and attention to detail. The rooms are magnificent, large...

Palacio Belmonte is a fabulous building with lovely views over Lisbon but it fell short of our expectations in so many ways. Although the staff were superficially very friendly and helpful they were very far from what one would expect from what we had thought would be a top class hotel. They seemed to treat the hotel like their own...

My husband and I spent 4 nights in the Richard Ruiz Suite at Palacio Belmonte in May of 2012 and were thoroughly delighted with our accommodations and the hotel itself.

If you are looking for an exclusive place, far from standardised hotels. Some kind of luxury bed and breakfast in a real palace with real classical furniture and with a wonderful crew, Palacio Belmonte is the place. Everything is perfect there !

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the Belmonte there is no crowd, no noise, no chocolate on the pillow, no television, just fresh air, space, light, your own laughter and music. For an experience beyond compare, far back to our roots, to our childhood, to fantasy, let Palacio Belmonte be your house while discovering the wonderland of Portugal. Palacio Belmonte offers 10 suites, all different, all unique, some with terraces, winter garden or built in a Roman tower with 360º view or in a Muslim one on top of a 40 meters high rock, all equipped with fully modern bathrooms, natural ventilation, a Mediterranean garden and black marble swimming pool to relax, read or dream. House of the Earl of Belmonte, Cabral and the Marquis of Atalaia for the past 500 years, the Belmonte is a stunning sculpture, a 2197 years synthesis of Portuguese history. It became a few years ago the House of a Landscape Collector. He then decided to open his house to a very few for whom luxury is synonymous of encountering one's emotions. Palacio Belmonte prides itself on delivering memorable unique customized experiences for those who choose to stay with us. For this reason Palacio Belmonte suggest experiences that can be personalized for you, whether it be a fabulous sunset in a yacht on the Tejo River, a private tour to unique architectural features of old Lisbon, your own private Fado singer, a special day out with wine, olive oil tastings and Lusitano horses in the Alentejo or maybe a dinner at the unique local "Tascas" in which you will experience the real authentic Portuguese hospitality. The Belmonte is the most veiled secret in Lisbon... And definitely a place to experience! History, Architecture, Culture, Sustainable Development... Here you will not find a standard accommodation but a single life option! While receiving the highest level of service, you will be merged by this deep philosophy of well being, exclusivity, simplicity, natural comfort, intimacy and introspection. Palacio Belmonte is a real alternative way of life... Come join us! ... more   less
