My family and I stayed at Lapa Palace during our trip to Lisbon in 2014. It was a stunning hotel with a beautiful interior and grounds, a fantastic gem, in the embassy district, which was very quiet. Not too far a walk, although with some hills, was the center of the neighborhood, with a beautiful park and more, and with...

A great place to relax, this place is quiet, has a beautiful garden and pool, a nice spa and gym with an indoor pool, extraordinary food and spacious rooms. It's not too near Barrio Alto, which makes it very peaceful at high. The staff is both helpful and friendly!

Just spent a weekend at this outstanding hotel. With classic traditional attention to detail, it's hard to fault the Lapa. How anyone can question its location beats me. In the elegant, quiet consular district it's a 7 euro taxi ride to both downtown Lisbon and the Belem area.....the two must visit districts. The gardens are beautifully maintained as well.

I stayed with my family of four including two young adults in two rooms on two different floors. Rooms were nice and perfectly agreeable. Breakfast was good but didn't vary much from day to day, but it was easy to get specialty coffees etc.. We were there the week before Christmas so it was very quiet and that may explain...

This hotel is very beautiful it, was once the palace of a count.It has very elegant rooms and public areas. It is located in a very hilly district which can be a problem for less mobile guests getting around. I think it is quite a distance from the main tourist locations but taxis are reasonable. Service is good and the...

Very comfortable hotel in a quiet area bit to far from the centre but taxis are very cheap and available. The piano bar service is excellent but drinks and food are very overpriced. Having said that they make amazing cocktails. We took breakfast in our room and it was basic at best. Our suite overlooking the gardens and pool had...

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.
