This hotel sits at the top of a the hill, next to the castle and is accessed by a network of narrow winding cobbled streets. The location is perfect, with commanding views of Lisbon (from our room) and a real feeling of serenity despite being in the heart of the city and next to a major (and extremely impressive) tourist...

This hotel was wonderful and special in so many ways. The location is in a beautiful setting, was easy to find, and was within walking distance of restaurants and Fado bars in the Alfama. It was a quiet and relaxing place to return to after touring the sites in Lisbon. And, the breakfast spread was fabulous. I will definitely stay...

I cannot say enough about how much I loved this hotel. It was charming and tastefully decorated with old world flair. We found a great deal for a couples package, and received champagne, chocolates and port in our room. The views were great, and being next to a Castle felt very romantic (without having to give up modern luxuries). I've...

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...

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.
