The hotel is in a great location within the castle walls. It is full of character. The staff were very friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Our room rather small but perfectly formed. The breakfast was great with lots of choice and was being replenished constantly. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone who prefers the personal touch with character.

The hotel is located next to St. George's Castle. It's in a near perfect location that is an easy walk to many of the standard tourist destinations as well as the main transit hub which makes it easy to catch a tram or train to places like Sintra or even just other parts of Lisbon. The staff was super friendly and the breakfast was great.

This hotel is a special gem. The location may be a bit tricky to get to but the taxi drivers have no problem. The staff go out of their way to make sure that you're comfortable, asking if you need anything if you slept well. They have an honor system for a bar which is open 24 hours a day and they also provide a beautiful breakfast along with drinks and snacks all day long. The decor is beautiful as it is part of the Old Castle and you certainly get that feeling. The small quaint courtyard is a ... Read more

No traffic to waken you, but the peacocks at the castle wiull waken you as early as 6.30 AM. Centrally located within walking distance of bus-stop. View onto the castle garden.

Our family of four had an excellent stay at Solar Do Castelo. Great location right next to the Castelo in the charming Castelo district. Rooms are nice and staff is friendly and helpful. Only occasional drawback are early morning serenades from the local peacock population (!). If you have a car, plan to park it somewhere else and taxi the last stretch to the hotel.

We stayed before four years ago and it was an obvious choice for a return trip to Lisbon. With its shady and comfortable courtyard, well furnished rooms and pleasant staff it's a lovely place to be away from the bustle but convenient to the city (along as you don't mind hills). The peaceful ambience is slightly spoiled by the screech of peacocks from the castle next door which are running a bit wild, but that apart it's perfect.

Lovely hotel with atmosphere and style which made our introduction to Lisbon an unforgettable one. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Our room was beautiful (it had a view of the river and the complimentary port was refilled every day). The peacocks from the castle gardens visited the courtyard for breakfast, which comprised a great selection of food and included bubbles and good coffee. The laneways, cafes and wine bars in the area are really excellent and the accommodation is walking dis... Read more

We really enjoyed our last nights in Portugal at this historic hotel with its own museum collection to view. Although hard to reach initially, we soon worked out the route to and from and enjoyed the 'exercise opportunity' provided by being at the top. Rooms were pristine, breakfast excellent and service high standard. The lounge and patio with complimentary tea and coffee and an honesty bar were a great way to relax on returning 'home'.

Alongside the castle, up narrow cobbled lanes high above Lisbon, this hotel provides modern facilities in a historic setting. Even a small museum in the former cistern. Peacocks to provide extra sound and colour. Breakfast available all morning - great for slow starts to the day.

Great location and beautiful hotel! Friendly and helpful staff! Only complaint was that there are beautiful but loud peacocks that will wake you each morning. And no fan in the bathroom. Otherwise would recommend this hotel.

The hotel is nice and relaxing. However, things nearby close at 7 pm. Alfama isn't still a distance away. If you're looking for a central location, I would stay elsewhere. The rooms are small, and not resort level amenities. The lobby area is nice with coffee and an honor bar. Also a great courtyard.

Really cute spot in an interesting area, neat being connected to the castle. Just be prepared to walk up the hill as it is a bit out of downtown, so made for a good work out going up and down that hill. However being up and just outside of the bustle of the city also made for a quiet location.

This hotel is really special. Secluded location within the Castle walls makes Solar an oasis of calm in the midst of bustling Lisbon. Lots of restaurants within 15 minute (steep) walk and central Lisbon a 10 minute bus ride away. Our superior room was spacious, comfortable, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Service is impeccable and nothing is too much trouble. Small and intimate with an ambience of tranquillity, it was just perfect!

The Solar da Castile, the castle kitchen, dates back to the 11th century, the original cistern survived the 1755 earthquake which destroyed most of the rest. It is a delightful rambling small hotel which is informal and efficient at the same time. The bar runs on an honour system. The roads her are narrow and unevenly cobbled and they are steep, you are entering an ancient fortress. The 737 bus starts near the castle gate and goes to Pl Figueira every 10 minutes.

Although a touristic neighborhood, it does not bother beacause the hotel is situated in a corner in a dead end street. Limited number of rooms, very cosy.

This hotel has a terrific location atop the Alfama district and under the great castle, whose entrance is a five-minute walk away. The area is very hilly, which is both charming and a challenge to the infirm. If you are in semi-decent shape, you will enjoy the narrow steep streets both coming and going to the hotel. Before you go, request the map provided by the hotel to guide taxi drivers, some of whom seem to find the location of the hotel a mystery. Our taxi driver from the airport dropped us... Read more

Solar Do Castelo is in the heart of old Lisbon Portugal. It provides excellent accommodation, a very generous breakfast and friendly service. It is located within minutes of the Sao Jorge Castle and archeological dig. Both must "sees". It has a generous courtyard where you can enjoy your breakfast or coffee.

We loved the breakfast and attention to customer service. Everyone was calm and it was very relaxing, even in the common area. The location was way better than I expected, up on the top of the hill just beside the best view we found in Lisbon, from the castle. Walking around the cobble stone streets and alleys surrounding the hotel was magical and we were sad to miss the opportunity to ride on the trolleys that are close by.

Beautiful intimate hotel set in a quiet street behind the queues of tourists awaiting entry to the castle. This really is a haven of peace and tranquility. The rooms are nicely furnished and include Molton Brown toiletries (always a bonus!) and the courtyard with its free roaming peacocks and day bed is a great place to escape and have a nice G and T from the honesty bar or a complimentary tea or coffee and pastry.

Given it's location inside the castle walls in the Alfama district - this hotel can be a little tricky to find at first but once you do it provides a wonderful refuge from busy Lisbon while still being walking distance to everything. I highly recommend it. My two pieces of advice are: - If you are arriving by taxi, contact the hotel before your stay and get directions to give to the cab driver - we didn't and ended up having to walk a bit to find the hotel. - Become familiar with the 28 trolley...

My daughter and I spent an excellent 5 days in Lisbon. If you like an area with great character, narrow, windy streets and walking up hill the Solar Do Castello will be a perfect hotel for you!

The hotel is quite remote from the centre of Lisbon but it is perfectly walkable, which we did every day.
