The Lapa Palace is a lovely luxury hotel that for me evoked the 80's. While the hotel is old and grand, most of it feels about as old as the mansion at turtle creek in Dallas—not a bad thing. My suite was in one of the more recently built wings and had a nice view of the pool and river.
When booking my hotel in Lisbon I had been torn between the Lapa Palace and the Four Seasons Ritz. I went to the Four Seasons for lunch and looked at their spa and a gust room. While the Lapa Palace felt soft and pink and 80's, the Four Seasons is wonderfully 50's/60's—thrilling if you enjoy Man Men. Both hotels have excellent service and food, although I'd say the Four Seasons has the edge. Are you looking for central 60's glamour or residential 80's lux? Both are wonderful--I can't wait to return to this wonderful city.

- 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.

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.
