Sometimes it happens: you make a booking and when you show up, everything turns out to be perfect. That's the case with Belvedere: a warm welcome, informal and proactive staff, appealing and clean rooms, a roof terrace with a great view over the river.

Can't say enough about this great spot. Funky (in a good way) eclectic and so very friendly! We had a great time exploring Lisbon from this wonderful place. We were treated like family from the moment we arrived. It was a great location to explore the old part of town. Breakfast on the rooftop was a wonderful way to start...

we knew the staff was nice and helpfull but we did not realise it is such an exception to have this! they were calling the airport to look after our lost luggage, they gave us directions for visiting the city, they were looking for rent a car, they booked us a taxi at 50% of the price that we had...

From the moment we arrived Nidia was a great host. We were made to feel very welcome and were given lots of advice and helpful tips for exploring Lisbon. We were able to leave our bags at the hotel until check in. We paid extra for a room with a view of the River Tagus. Wow!!! It was definitely worth...

When walking out of the hotel for the first time there are two options: to walk down or to walk up. If the aim is to walk into town one should walk up passing the terrace with the great view over the Tagus. But there is reward walking in the other direction too. We found a jewel of an art...

The hotel is in the centre of Lisbon and close walking distance to so many bars, restaurants, shops, and the River Tagus. The staff were very friendly and informative, however they aren't always around. We needed to check out at 7:30am and no one was there no one there so we had to leave the key with the restaurant. While...

our room was lovely, with a view of the river. Breakfast was served on the roof top restaurant, with a view of the river and the city. The staff was terrific -- very helpful. It was in a great location as well. We were very happy to stay there.

This is an excellent hotel which defies its 2 star status. Very nice bedrooms and rooftop restaurant that doubles for breakfast in the morning and tapas location at night but with a fabulous view over the River Tejus. Tapas incidentally are excellent and the atmosphere was really nice. Staff extremely helpful and very keen to impart their extensive knowledge of...

Start with the positives! Good location, friendly staff, great views. Otherwise the hotel is just one more in a chain. The room was clean, but the bedlinen didn't fit properly. Breakfast was the most disappointing thing - terrible coffee, looked like the buffet had been there since the day before and we weren't offered any freshly cooked eggs like a...

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
