Four night long weekend, garden wing, river view. From an early check-in to a late check-out, nothing was too much trouble for the staff of this hotel. 5th floor bedroom, spectacular balcony view of the Tagus, luxurious bathroom and a bed so large we slept in separate post codes! Public areas reflect the hotel’s past as a Palace; gardens are...

It is an old fashioned hotel, so if you are looking for modern comforts, not the place for you. Beautiful gardens, delicious food, nice outdoor spots for breakfast and lunch and outside the old fashioned bar. A trip back in time, very relaxing and friendly staff.Service is exceptional and though rooms maybe lacking in modern comforts, luxury is abundant.

My partner and I stayed here for three nights. We were thrilled to have a river / pool view and on a high floor (tip: ask for both at check-in). Beds are really comfortable and the bathroom is luxurious with marble everywhere and azulejos as well. The doormen wear traditional top hats and tails and treat you very professionally. Breakfast...

This beautiful hotel, in the midst of a neighborhood of Embassies, transports the guest back to a time where elegance and service couldn’t be improved. Located at the highest point of the Lapa neighborhood, Lapa Palace commands excellent views of the Tagus as well as Lisbon. Stay in a room with a pool/garden view, and enjoy tranquility amidst the bustle...

We stayed for three nights at this hotel and enjoyed it very much. The location is peaceful and elevated a little from the city centre. No more than 5 euros by taxi. Also close to the many sites in Belem. The gardens are beautiful and I can imagine that the pool would be a huge asset in the summer months....

This hotel is excellent. Friendly and efficient staff, lovely rooms set in a beautiful building. The service was perfect, the bar delightful and the breakfast terrace lovely. Everywhere was spotlessly clean as well. We were there before the season started but the pool was open heated and sunbeds laid out when the weather turned unexpectedly hot. This hotel really understands...

Being a regular visitor to Lisbon on business I have tried all 5 star Hotels in the City, except for the modern glass caged aquariums with no balcony and sometimes not even a window that fully opens. Unfortunately it seems to be trendy now and it's not for me. About a year ago I elected Lapa Palace as MY Lisbon...

It's a beautiful and nice hotel in Lisbon which is situated in a renovated and elite part of the city where all the high class hotels and embassies are. It has a pool and a nice personnel which serves you at the pool cafe, room service is also nice, otherwise the staff are arrogant and unfriendly. Sometimes they even behave...

Classic, well appointed, well maintained hotel in a former palace is unbeatable. The property and rooms are in excellent condition with rich wood tones. Staff is very gracious and helpful, including the Bell Person who greeted me by name when I walked downstairs for the first time 12 hours after I arrived at the hotel. Impressive. The bar is comfortable...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in the 19th-century, this luxurious palace is nestled on a hilltop overlooking the Tagus River and presents guests with the ideal base for an unforgettable stay in Lisbon. Tucked away in the city's diplomatic quarter, Lapa Palace is set in a beautiful sub-tropical garden. Sunbathe on a lounger in the pool area or pay a visit to the Spa, where you can treat yourself to hours of relaxation in the sauna. Traditional decor and elegant designs make each of the rooms a haven after a day of work or sightseeing. Marvel at panoramic views from the comfort of your balcony or enjoy a long bath in your marble bathroom. Thanks to the palace's convenient location, central Lisbon is only a short drive away.
