“Paradise in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

We spent 5 days at this traditional five star hotel for our first stay in Lisbon. As this was both a business and leisure trip we sought a full service hotel with a business center, easy access to room wifi, and the amenities of a resort. We were not disappointed on any count. While all the services and amenities were true five star quality, we particularly appreciated the helpfulness of the concierges, the delicious buffet breakfast (with choice of indoor or outdoor seating), the pool and its surrounding tropical gardens, and the spa (very clean, excellent massages). The only slight downside is the location of the hotel, which is situated in a residential area and requires either a walk to the tramway, a taxi, or a car in order to get to the main attractions, cafés or shops. While the valet parking is free and rapid, we ended up returning the rental car earlier as driving in Lisbon was not a real pleasure (narrow sloping streets). Getting around by taxi was very inexpensive compared to other European cities and the cab drivers were friendly. This hotel is an excellent choice if you are seeking a quiet and elegant hotel with full five star amenities. We saw a number of families too with impressively well behaved children!

Room Tip: We had a third floor garden room which gave us a view to the pool and lush gardens and a bit of the...

Spent a night at Lapa Palace and could not have expected more. Had a large and luxurious room with beautiful view of Lisbon and huge marble bathroom. The location is perfect too. And price was not excessive.

Thanks to a friend who put me up in an apartment he owns I had a few pennies left to end the holiday on a high note. Although certainly not a cheap hotel - my room was 200 euro a night - it is a great way to round off a trip to Portugal if you economise in the first week. This hotel is so good that it is worth saving up for: The staff are wonderful, the interior of the hotel is beautiful and the garden and pool area are exquisite and great, great value even for the price paid. The hotel is like a magic portal: You can go in exhausted from a hard year and come out, just a few days later relaxed and re-invigorated. Definitely would recommend this to anyone and if the prices in summer are too steep consider going to Portugal in late March / early April when the weather is still pleasant and there is so much to see in the capital that you don't have to spend all day by the pool.

Good spacious room, huge bed, great staff, good food, couldn't have asked for more.
Probably not suited to young guests, perfect if you like peace and quiet.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked garden. Lovely view.

We spent three nights at this hotel by the beginning of Juli 2012 and in general we are satisfied.
Positive points are very nice and large garden with pool and with bar(very delicious calvados) , pleasant staff, hotel location, nice hotel interior/furniture except for restaurant, high-quality bed, good breakfast koffee and mango fruit, quiet hotel.
Nothing to be praised - unclean carpet in the corner in our room, hotel restaurant is unexciting and the food is nothing special , breakfast presentation is poor.
We have not seen SPA.
Positive dominate.

Room Tip: The room No. 607 has a nice view of the river but a little noisy in the morning. No balcony.
