This was our second visit, and it hasn't changed at all. Traditional 5* excellence all round I'm pleased, and relieved, to say. Excellent reception staff, the place runs like clockwork. Very nice room, lovely balcony overlooking the excellent pool area. No problem getting loungers / towels etc. Expensive? Sure is, and whilst that's to be expected, I do think the...

We spent 2 weeks vacationing in different parts of Portuga for our honeymoon l,and The Lapa Palace was to be the crowning jewel of stay. It was not (that honor went to The Yeatman in Porto). I wanted to add this review so that others might have appropriate expectations where we did not. Unfortunately despite mostly excellent service, our expectations...

Booked the hotel for a short 3 night break (mini honeymoon). Upon arrival we were presented with a bottle of champagne and strawberries. The service was absolutely superb from start to finish and the room was excellent. The price of food and drink was extremely high, but you pay the price for staying at such an excellent hotel. Would definitely...

This place is unreal...from the moment we arrived to the moment we got into a cab to go to the airport, we were treated like royals, and that is what really makes this place - its staff. Everyone at the hotel is there to accommodate your every need (well, almost every need...you know..). While visiting Lisbon, my friend and I...

We really enjoyed the Lapa Palace. The service was outstanding and we had a room with a lovely river view in the older part of the hotel. The breakfast buffet was excellent as was our dinner on the terrace. I was developing a bad cold and Rui the concierge was incredibly helpful in getting medicine for me. We also had...

My fiancee and I arrived and were instantly greeted by the porters who opened the car doors and took our suitcases. We checked in and were escorted up to our beautiful garden/pool view room. Joanne was extremely helpful and attentive. The room was beautiful, the photos do not do it justice. We have high standards for hotels and this room...

The seniority, well appointed outdoor areas and the odd layout of the Palace, signals to the grandeur of another area. A delight to still find linen towels, so European. The concierge service at its best, the porter greets you with pride and elegance. Great location. A must for cruisers.

We stayed as a party of 4 in two rooms in late June. The fact that the Lapa Palace is a 5-star property is immediately obvious as you arrive. Manicured gardens out front, and plenty of staff were there to greet us, and remembered our names throughout our 3 night stay. The entrance hall is impressive and beautifully appointed. The...

I stayed here only because a friend of mine could not stop talking about how great it was. And I completely agree, what a great stay. The rooms are large and they all have amazing balconies with beautiful views. This is defiantly number One in Lisbon!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in the 19th-century, this luxurious palace is nestled on a hilltop overlooking the Tagus River and presents guests with the ideal base for an unforgettable stay in Lisbon. Tucked away in the city's diplomatic quarter, Lapa Palace is set in a beautiful sub-tropical garden. Sunbathe on a lounger in the pool area or pay a visit to the Spa, where you can treat yourself to hours of relaxation in the sauna. Traditional decor and elegant designs make each of the rooms a haven after a day of work or sightseeing. Marvel at panoramic views from the comfort of your balcony or enjoy a long bath in your marble bathroom. Thanks to the palace's convenient location, central Lisbon is only a short drive away. Park your car for free on site and indulge in fresh seafood at the restaurant. In the meantime, the concierge is happy to arrange various services for you, including the use of the VIP room facilities. ... more   less
