Top notch service, lovely room, excellent staff. It is literally next the Castle of St george and convenient to al the Almafa neighborhood. The room was very nicely appointed, including a...

Stayed here three nights with my daughter and would highly recommend although only for people who are prepared to walk up the hill ! Our room was very nice, comfy beds, small well-equipped bathroom with lots of hot water, molton brown toiletries etc. We had breakfast there each morning which had pretty much everything you could want, in the summer...

A wonderfully cozy and atmospheric hotel. The location within the castle area, the neighborhood, with narrow cobblestone streets, it's all very picturesque. I would have hoped that the hotel guests had access, inside the castle gates, directly from the hotel, even outside opening hours, since the building is part of the castle complex and is adjacent to it. The hotel...

We had a beautiful time at the hotel. The staff was very courteous, and extremely helpful with all our requests. It's a magical place to stay, if you really want to get the feel of Lisbon. The breakfast was something to look forward to every morning.

We were on a family vacation with our grown girls. The hotel was perfect. Friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms and very nicely decorated. We returned every afternoon and relaxed and played cards in the lobby area which was perfect. Great vacation and would definitely stay again!!!

Booked this for my husband's birthday on the back of other trip advisor reviews and it certainly lived up to expectations. Great location and we could walk to the key sites. The decor is outstanding and the courtyard is a lovely oasis. Good views and close proximity to the castle so handy for dinner and to beat the queues in...

We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel at the very top of the mountain and next to the castle. A lovely courtyard, discreet entrance, big bathroom, fountains and birds chirping. Helpful staff, soft beds, quiet streets and free coffee 24/7 together with a help yourself selection of alcoholic beverages. Will highly recommend to everyone!

This was a very comfortable and charming accommodation within the medieval walls of the city. Hidden among small, winding (and steep) streets, the area was very walkable -- even at night. The hotel staff was friendly and welcoming. The rooms were not large, but were very comfortable. The hotel itself, with its beautiful, interior courtyard, felt very relaxing, and it...

We just finished our fantastic stay at this beautiful hotel, and very sad to be leaving! The staff were all great, very helpful and really friendly. The room we got was very nice and quite a big size with a very high wooden ceiling. The Molten Brown toiletries, bathrobe and slippers are included and a very nice touch. Also complimentary...

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.
