I had a wonderful experience at this hotel. The room was comfortable and exceptionally clean and spacious enough as I don't spend my holiday in a room. Yes and for those people worried about a bed it was comfortable. Plenty of transport options nearby, bus stop, taxis and tuc tucs. Helpful staff who supplied maps and information. I didn't partake...

We arrived early but we were made very welcome and our room was ready for us to use. It was exactly as described and the decanter of port was a very pleasant surprise, it was lovely to take it to the garden in the evening. The tea and coffee facilities etc were available in the guest area which was a...

We stayed at this charming hotel over New Year and found it a little haven of peace and tranquility, knoweldgable and very helpful staff, clean and with a unique history. However, you really do need to be aware that the hotel is right next to one of the major tourist attractions, on a hill with cobbled narrow roads, not in...

Normally the Website of the hotel exaggerates the features/luxury in their photos. Actually in the case of this hotel - the photos cannot capture the romance, beauty and fun of this hotel - so it is even nicer than the website. They know how to make great hotels in Portugal - and we have stayed in some fun Poussadas -...

I chose Solar do Costello because of it's location in the walls of Lisbon St George's castle in the Alfama district. This heritage inn, Alfama and the castle all lived up to all of our expectations. The Inn was quiet, friendly, clean and efficient. It is proud of it's history as part of the castle kitchens. It even has it's...

Our family used the 737 bus regularly to visit many sites in Lisbon. The hotel is well designed with the lounge a place to meet over a cuppa after a busy day out. Breakfast was always fresh . All staff were professional making our stay relaxing.

Solar do Castelo is on the grounds of the famous, breathtaking and beautiful Castle of Sao Jorge. Now, that would make is special enough, but behind the unassuming and huge red doors is a magnificent hotel that rivals any in the county. From the beautiful tiles and fountain and sculptures in the courtyard to every last detail in the rooms,...

My wife and I stayed here in December 2016. This hotel definitely warrants the high reviews that it has on trip advisor. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very courteous. Breakfast was excellent. There were typical meats and cheeses, eggs, ham, pastries, tarts, fresh squeezed orange juice, and even mimosas. Our room was very unique and had...

The Solar Do Castelo is just steps away from the entrance to the Castle and part of the oldest area of Lisbon. Winding, narrow streets, interesting little shops and cafe's plus you can walk down to the port area or to the Old Central District. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. They provide a very nice breakfast that runs late...

Please go to the REAL Fado bars, not the hotels, for the best music unique to Portugal. The hotel has all the advice you need. The area around El Famma, Castillo St Jiago is best. The Maritime Museum is one of the best in the world. Doig Simmonds

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.
