  • Hotel Solar do Castelo

    Superbly located within the walls of St Jorge’s Castle in the heart of Lisbon, Portugal’s fascinating capital city

    Description

    Built on the site of the former Alcacova Palace and classified as an ‘historic building’, Solar do Castelo is located within St Jorge’s Castle walls. Beautifully located in a quiet, ‘hidden away’ oasis in the historic Alfama district, this delightful hotel benefits from superb views over the city. The hotel and location exude beauty and tranquility and feature gardens, terraces, a charming inner courtyard and, sometimes the occasional peacock.

    Solar do Castelo has been beautifully transformed into a stylish Hotel offering luxurious and comfortable accommodation. Throughout the décor is contemporary classic and facilities include an elegant lounge with the original stone walls, bar, elevator, 24 hour front desk, room service, concierge service and luggage storage. The hotel does not have a restaurant as there are many excellent restaurants and cafes within walking distance.

    The Hotel has a total of 14 bedrooms all have en-suite bathroom, air conditioning and double glazing, Satellite TV, free high speed wireless internet access, flat screen LCD television, DVD player, direct dial telephone, bathrobes and hair dryer.

    Cars are not recommended for guests of the hotel as no vehicles are allowed in the Castle. However, a taxi will bring you to within 100 metres of the hotel.

    There are so many places to visit in this wonderful city that they are too numerous to mention. However, the Monastery of Jeronimos and the Belem Tower are a must also, dining out in one of the many restaurants which feature the famous Fado, a style of singing unique to Portugal.

      • Guincho (35 kms): The magnificent sandy Atlantic beach of Guincho has some of the best rollers in Europe – it’s a true paradise for surfers.

      • Troia (15 minute car ferry trip from Setubal): A stunning peninsula with 18kms of clean, soft sandy beaches, some of the cleanest in Portugal. Although parts of the island are built up you can still find untouched, secluded sandy beaches. There is also an 18 hole Championship golf course and restaurants famous for their seafood.
