Awards & Accolades

2022 Historic Hotels Worldwide Awards of Excellence Winner
Set within the walls of Castelo de São Jorge, which crowns the heights of the historic Alfama district, Solar Do Castelo is a royal refuge in the heart of Lisbon. This romantic boutique hotel is located in an 18th-century mansion that was built on the site of the former kitchens of the Royal Palace. Rich in history, the mansion’s original architectural features have been lovingly restored while the location’s medieval heritage is demonstrated by a collection of archaeological finds proudly on display at the hotel. Each of the guestrooms is unique, but all reflect the grandeur of the past with rich textiles and curated antiques. The city center is only a quick stroll away through the narrow cobbled streets of the castle’s medieval village, where access is restricted to pedestrians and taxis. Guests can easily avoid the walk back up the hill thanks to the convenient golf cart provided by the hotel. After a long day out exploring the city, grab a drink from the well-stocked honesty bar and sink in the comfy leather sofas of the stylish lounge. Relax with the peacocks visiting from the adjacent castle in the beautiful courtyard framed by lush greenery and decorated with colorful Portuguese tiles. Experience the past and present at this historic heritage hotel.
