The Solar Do Castelo is the perfect place from which to explore Lisbon. Located in the Alfama, the Solar Do Castelo is an oasis of beauty and tranquility. The buffet breakfast is outstanding and the front desk is ready to assist and advise.

Just come back from Lisbon after 4 wonderful nights at the Solar do Castelo Hotel. The staff were attentive, friendly and helpful - even when we arrived at 11.30 pm on a late flight! The hotel and our room were comfortable and well equipped. The location was perfect - I much prefer to be woken in the morning by peacocks...

Great hotel located near the castle where we had dinner one of the nights. The hotel also found a driver Pedro Ramos 351927259723. He is knowledgeable and reasonable if you want a really good tour of Lisboa. The hotel staff was amazing

A lovely hotel, right next to the castle and surrounded by quaint little streets and restaurants. Very high quality rooms and service, great breakfasts and a very attentive front-desk guiding us through the city. It's at the top of the hill, so coming back is always a hike up hill - taxis and tuktuks reluctant to come all the way,...

An excellent location high above Lisbon - a great place to relax following our 7 days walking tour along the Rota Vincentina. Surrounded by the bustle of castle visitors during the day, but a quiet courtyard retreat from late afternoon. Attentive service throughout - great breakfast buffet.

A beautiful hotel tucked away under the Castelo de S. Jorge walls. Very convenient to the city center and major sites. The staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. A great place to stay for first-timers to the city.

It's what we all want on a break in a foreign city, isn't it? Access to the throbbing heart of the local metropolis, but not situated slap bang in it. Beautiful, relaxed surroundings. An attentive, but unobtrusive hotel staff. Comfortable room, bed and facilities with a balcony and a view of the sea. Yes? Welcome to Solar Do Castelo. A...

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
