The Solar do Castelo is a very attractive small hotel, housed in a converted 18th century mansion, with an excellent location in the grounds of the Castelo de São Jorge.
The hotel is reached via narrow, winding streets, overlooking the historic Alfama district, and is the only hotel within St. George's castle walls. There are just 14 bedrooms, which are all decorated in medieval contemporary style, and have a balcony overlooking the central courtyard.
A wonderful buffet breakfast, including freshly baked bread, is served in the hotel's courtyard. Although there is no restaurant at the hotel, there is collection of local restaurants just beyond the castle walls, and only a short distance from the hotel. Lisbon is a city of great cuisine so guest will be spoilt for choice wherever they go. Guests, can however, make use of the hotel's bar, which samples regional wine and is an ideal spot in the evenings for a pre dinner drink, whilst admiring the great views out across the city.
