Fit for visiting royalty!

Reviewed 3 november, 2021

I felt like royalty during our stay at the Olissippo Lapa Palace . It is a true old world European luxury hotel. The service is impeccable; The hotel is immaculate. The staff were warm and welcoming, and very responsive. The lobby and public rooms actually looked like a palace with frescoes, hand painted tiles, and lush decor. We had a gorgeous room with a balcony overlooking the water. Sweet! I wasn’t expecting the stunning outdoor pool and gorgeous patio. And lo and behold there was even an indoor pool! Don’t forget to bring your bathing suit! The only drawback is that the hotel is not particularly centrally located. There are some very steep cobblestone streets in the surrounding area, but that’s Portugal. The hotel makes it exceptionally easy to get cabs and the cabs are very reasonably priced. In spite of this I would still recommend a stay there. I only wish we could’ve spent more time there. I’ll be back if it kills me.

Fantastic Hotel with incredible staff. Great value for money!

Reviewed 29 october, 2021

I have been staying in many top class hotels in the world, including "real" Palaces but this one really stands out. I write "real" Palaces because this one though name "palace" is only ranked 4 stars but should be granted with 5 if you consider the quality or the hotel, its facilities and the service. We stayed there for 4 nights with two children in a connecting room. The rooms are large and comfortable. We had a superb view on the River and the beautiful garden. Everything was working to perfection in the rooms, nothing to report, which is rare nowadays. Everything was top, from towels quality to shower, bath, balcony, bed, space, organisation of the room, etc. everything just where it has to be as it has to be in a top class hotel. The hotel facilities are great with a very good restaurant in house and a nice terrace for the breakfast. If I could only make one suggestion, is to have the breakfast terrace on the inner side of the hotel, overlooking at the garden. Breakfast choice was complete with a large choice of quality and fresh products. The hotel has an absolutely beautiful peaceful garden with lots of trees, fontains, river, birds and a beautiful swimming pool and poolhouse. We spent a lot of time visiting the city but had we know from the start, maybe we would have spent much more time at the pool. moreover, the pool is situated in a niche, protected by the trees, offering little openings to the wind, so it is a warm place, even in the mid-seasons. In summer, the trees will offer a nice shadow. We did not use the other facilities of the hotel such as the gym and spa but I trust they are in line with the rest! Last but not least: the staff is the nicest we have met in Portugal (who are as a standard already very polite and nice people!). They are outstandingly polite and ready to help, increadibly efficient in dealing with your requests and welcome you like your family! Tow last (but not least again) things that come to my mind as I write it: price is what it is and may be seen as expensive for many people but compared to other hotels in Lisbon, it is definitively a great value for the price if you consider the quality of the hotel. It becomes an unbeatable value for the price if you consider on top of that the location of the hotel: it is not right in the "hot" spots of the city but it is around 10mns walking distance from it. You have beautiful sights on the River AND it is in a quite spot with little trafic. On a Saturday we heard music coming from a discotheque nearby but that was the only noise that sligthly disrupted our sleep. You can not say the same for other hotels who are right in the hot spots. Its location is really interesting because you are very close to many good spots and that is really a value rather than being located in one defined place. A big big thanks for this wonderful stay.

Absolutely fantastic hotel!

Reviewed 18 october, 2021

We loved the Lapa Palace. Second time there. We were upgraded to a large room with a beautiful pool and river view. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. Beautiful Palace! Our breakfast was included, and we ate breakfast every day outside overlooking the pool and it was delicious and every day we arrived back from touring and went straight to the outside bar where we had either drinks or tea and snacks. The staff were all truly terrific. They provided us with great recommendations for sightseeing, shopping and our dinner reservations. One night we asked them to tell us where they ate instead of where all the tourists eat, and the concierge showed us where he eats with his friends. It looked great to us, we took 20-minute taxi ride to it and it truly was terrific and very authentic. We loved it. The location of the hotel was great. Easy walking, taxi, etc. The hotel has a ton of character, which is complimented perfectly by the staff, all of whom were friendly, funny, and warm. Best thing about the Lapa is their staff. Each one of them are terrific. We highly recommend Lapa Palace, and we very much look forward to our return visit. Thank you for all you did to make our trip such a memorable one! You have an amazing place! Donna & George from NYC

Perfect Lisbon Oasis

Reviewed 9 october, 2021

We loved the Lapa Palace. The front desk staff is exceptional. The man on the front desk who looks a bit like Stanley Tucci was spot on every recommendation. He got us situated day one for seeing the sites and how to structure our day. His dinner recommendation of an Italian restaurant near the hotel (once it was clear we didn’t want to dine at the hotel) was one of the best meals I have had. Breakfast buffet is plentiful. Our room was spectacular — facing the water with a terrace, with a big King sized bed. The hotel is located outside the main touristy area and it does require a decent walk uphill or a tram back. But it was perfect way to end your day overlooking the garden sipping a mojito. We would return in a flash. We appreciated the pay for 2, stay for 3 night deal as well.

Nice hotel well placed for exploring Lisbon

Reviewed 24 september, 2021

We had a lovely 3 night stay in a palace room on the 6th floor. The staff were very welcoming. Room was spacious and clean albeit the balcony was tiny. We had a lovely view of the garden and city. Bed was super comfy. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. Hotel is located about 35 min walk to the centre. The hotel has free car parking which was key for us.
