Set on the absolute waterfront of Cascais’s dramatic Atlantic coastline, Farol Hotel reflects the unique charm of the township. Delightful old-world houses and cobbled streets frame a graceful bay on Portugal’s spectacular Estoril Coast to tell the story of a bygone era. The capital, Lisbon and the international airport are an easy 35-minute drive along excellent roads. A local train also runs between the city and Cascais. Lisbon is served by full service and budget airlines from all the major European hubs, which include Frankfurt, Paris, London and Zurich plus Stockholm, and Moscow. Arrive fuss-free and in style at Lisbon International Airport with a pre-arranged Farol Hotel limousine to meet you and transfer the short scenic trip to Cascais. As a proud member of prestigious Design Hotels, Farol Hotel is a wonderfully eclectic composition of adventurous architecture that embraces a remodeled 19th century private mansion that was once owned by the Count of Cabral, together with unique contemporary additions. The result is an inspire union of the old and the new. The Farol Hotel has a non-smoking policy in all its areas.

The staff are just wonderful here. The location and views are beautiful. The facilities, bedroom, bathroom were very nice if a little small. It was tight for us and our 1 year old in a top floor room. But without a child it would have been perfect. The breakfast was delicious wit

The Farol Hotel is just a beautiful design hotel with a beautiful decoration, from the lobby, restaurant and rooms.
Big room with comfortable beds. Expensive restaurant for an average food.
Close to Cascais Museum District.

Stylish and great location (especially for the sunset), but the service was poor and indifferent. After ordering drinks we were kicked off the terrace along with other guests without any real reason and an apathetic shrug. Poor.

Hello Do all Seaview rooms have useable balconies please? Many thanks
No they don't all have usable balconies, some of them are 'Juliette balcony', ring the hotel to ensure you have one of the room above the pool with the balconies that have table and chairs. They are the best.

Hi, we are coming to visit lisbon to see the sights for three nights and were looking at your hotel. How close is it to the tourist areas of lisbon and whats the best way to get there and back?
We are staying here next month, so we did a little research. There are several local trains and I think they run about 2-3E each way. It's about 45 minutes to Lisbon from Cascais. But it's like a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel to/from the train station.

Certains commentaires disent qu'il y a mieux a cascais que cet hotel. Alors justement pouvez vous nous dire lesquels? Nous recherchons un hotel luxueux un peu design ( pas de deco ancienne) avec un petit spa si possible, pas trop loin du centre. Merci de vos conseils!
No tiene spa pero es un hotel de diseño muy recomendable
