We stayed here for a long weekend at the beginning of April and couldn't have picked a better hotel. From our arrival, to the moment we left the staff looked after us as if we were the only guests, such personal attention. The hotel itself is lovely and has incredible views from the roof terrace restaurant. The breakfast was very... More

Definition of boutique hotel. Glass doors, shiny elevator, silver fixtures, built right into a centuries old building. The highlight is the breakfast on the roof deck. Surrounded by glass and a 360 view of the bridge, city and water. The orange juice is amazing. The spread they had put out was perfect. Meats, cheeses and pastries all great. One of... More

We stayed in this hotel during a rainy weekend. In spite of the weather having spoiled a bit our holidays, the wonderful time spent in the hotel made up for that. The hotel is clean, beautiful, with character and with views. The staff are very friendly, caring and helpful. They even provide, every morning, a little plan on places to... More

This was my first time in Lisbon and I'm so delighted with the hotel we chose. The rooms were extremely clean, the food lovely, and the staff so super helpful! Even when on one of our evenings it bucketed down with rain one of the staff helped us out with a lend of an umbrella, little things like this go... More

Lovely hotel with wonderful receptionists who include a full briefing in their welcome. Modern rooms in older but well kept house. Terrific views from top terrace/restaurant. Located in nice area with really good eateries nearby. Happily recommended to all.

Fantastic views from rooftop restaurant, both in the daytime and at night. Very popular, so need to book. Lovely bedroom: small, but beautifully decorated. Staff really made you feel looked after. They were very knowledgeable about the area and could give suggestions about places to visit, and places to eat. I'm a very independent traveller, and usually don't want any... More

The hostal is in a great location, overlooking the city and the river. It is at walking distance to most places of interest in Lisbon's historic downtown. The staff service is great and very attentive. For any leisure trip the place is perfect. I would definitely stay here again when in Lisbon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Some say it has the best view of Lisbon! From our panoramic restaurant where breakfast is served every morning for our guests, you will not be indifferent to the Cristo Rei embracing Lisbon, the river Tagus [Tejo], the 25th of April Bridge with lights showing where the Atlantic Ocean begins and also the Basilica da Estrela that stands out between the rooftops of Lapa… However, the main feature of Monte Belvedere by Shiadu is not simply its amazing view! Its 13 rooms, some of which with a magnificent view of the river Tagus , have all the comfort you need for an unforgettable stay and our dedicated staff will welcome you, making you feel as if you were at home. Every day you will enjoy our delicious home-made breakfast prepared just for you! Near Monte Belvedere by Shiadu you will find the Northwind Statue [Estatua do Adamastor] (fictional character created by Luis de Camoes, in his master works The Lusiadas). The higher part of Santa Catarina is one of the most beautiful places of Lisbon and only two steps away from the city buzz. With views over the river Tagus it is said that since the 17th Century this plateau, once known as Monte do Pico or Monte Belvedere, is famous because of its lookout point. According to legend throughout the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, from here one could see the moving ships: this is why still today there is a proverbial saying that is: “Ver navios no Alto de Santa Catarina” [“Watching the ships from the top of Santa Catarina”). Follow your instinct and we will be waiting…. ... more   less
