Very lovely hotel, with stunning view from the restaurant on the rooftop, and very well located. The rooms are very clean, and modern, bathed with sun and quiet. Fantastic service from the staff who did whatever they could to make you feel comfortable and accommodate you. We had a delicious "tapas" lunch at the restaurant madame Petisca (though a bit...

I usually choose 3-4 star hotels and had booked this 2-star hotel unwittingly, but as soon as we arrived, the night manager Raquel greeted us personally and made us feel extremely welcome. The room and all facilities are very clean and well kept and all the furnishings are modern. The bathroom is a bit basic and the shower was designed...

My brother and I stayed at the Monte Belvedere for 3 nights. From the moment our taxi pulled up to the hotel, we were treated like royalty. Raquel (one of the managers) welcomed us with a huge smile, and sat us down with a detailed map of Lisbon, explaining the various neighborhoods and making excellent recommendations for where to eat,...

From the very start it was obvious that this hotel has received great reviews for very good reason. All communication prior to our stay was really helpful and the booking process simple. From the moment we arrived the attention to detail was excellent. The local area was explained to us and the map we were given showing where to find...

We booked this hotel for 3 nights over New Year, based on location and on positive reviews - and all of the comments are totally correct. The hotel is small and quirky - it used to be an old factory - and I had upgraded us to a Superior room with a view of the river. Light, airy and with...

Lovely hotel in a great location, close to restaurants, bars and the centre of Lisbon. Everything you could possibly want from a hotel with a great breakfast spread, exceptionally helpful staff and lovely rooms. Superb value for money - I would highly recommend this hotel

This is a very small and cosy hotel on a perfect location. Good breakfast with a great view over the city and the river. Very helpful staff, always willing to give you some advise on your visit. On walking distance of most of the best sites. I would most certainly stay here again on my next visit to Lissabon.

The Monte Belvedere is a fantastic little hotel. The view from the rooftop restaurant is not to be missed, you have a choice of sitting in the glass-enclosed room, or outside. The best part is the staff, especially Joanna (I hope I'm spelling this right). They went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our visit, from making...

I stayed here for a couple of nights looking for a change from the normal work hotels (Sheraton, Marriott, Hilton etc). I wasn't disappointed. I think officially this is a 2* hotel but it felt more like a 3.5*. The room was small and the internet was not great however it was clean and felt new (apparently the hotel opened...

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
