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...

The location is away from the center of activities but taxi price are so reasonable and readily available that being away from all the hustle bustle is rather good. For 5 to 6 Euros you are where you want to be. taxi to and from the airport is around 10 euros. Hotel staff will recommend good places for dinner. One...

The Olissippo Lapa Palace is an outstanding grand hotel with the right blend of old style courtesy and service together with the most modern amenities. The rooms, restaurants and bars are first class and the service is second to none. My stay was a wonderful experience and I am looking forward to my next visit when back in Lisbon.

This is a beautiful hotel that is a 15 blocks off the beaten path which means you will have a great walk to a variety of lovely places. This hotel was nothing if not excellent and a super experience. They staff was very accommodating and helpful.

Stayed here for 3 night pre-cruise package. Beautiful hotel in the old city. Breakfast was excellent, although didn't realize until the last day that you can also order ala carte. Service is excellent. We did not not realize it was a michelin starred restaurant and was told by others that the food was excellent. The pools were closed due to...

One of the best hotel experiences I have had: loved the rooms, the amenities, the staff and the pool. If I did not want to leave the hotel and go explore Lisbon, I could have stayed the whole time. Only side is its location is a bit far from all the city sights. You will need to take taxi.

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. Park your car for free on site and indulge in fresh seafood at the restaurant. In the meantime, the concierge is happy to arrange various services for you, including the use of the VIP room facilities. ... more   less
