Hotel is equiped with good coffee machine, very clean, good service and breakfast.

A quiet area yet close to everything. it was an enjoyable visit

Nice hotel, comfortable, very welcoming staff - quiet on a secluded street. The only downside is that it is a bit of a climb to get to the hotel but it's downhill from the hotel to elsewhere! That said beautiful view of the city and Igreja Grasia from the room

Great view from our room. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Quiet street. Brought a complimentary bottle of port and peanuts.

Personnel at hotel are very hepful.you have to pay for breakfast.and safe in room you have to put a deposit of 50 euros to get to use it.but I will stay again at this hotel.

Beautifully appointed hotel with beautiful views overlooking the city. Located in the Alfama district, it is within walking distance to many sights. Just beware that streets are steep and uneven in the old part of Lisbon. We were upgraded to a gorgeous suite with a good sized terrace. It was a delight to stay in our comfortable room. We were compelled to order room service to take advantage of the pretty terrace. The breakfast served was very good. Their pastries were particularly fresh an delicious.

We wanted to visit a place in Lisbon that offered the real "feel" of the ancient city, a sampling of good food, and touring of nearby historical sites. Luckily, we found the Olissippo Castelo. This gem of great quality, snuggled into an intimate part of the historic Amalfa section near the Castelo de Sao Jorge, fit our plans perfectly. Moreover, the neighborhood contained great art (Colorida Gallery), distinctive jewelry, Portuguese crafts of all kinds, and authentic Fado. in addition, our delightful, week-long stay at the hotel was crowned by excellent accommodations and service; among the best we have ever experienced.

The hotel is located just below the walls of the Castelo de Sao Jorge and the rooms located on levels 2 and 3 (for Americans that's floors 3 and 4) have patios with 2 lawn chairs and a table. We had a week long stay on level 3, our room was lovely with a seating area and sleeping area, plus the patio. The view was great! The hotel staff was helpful and great to talk to. They could make dinner recommendations, sightseeing recommendations, and important to my husband and me, how to get tickets to the Portugal v Turkey soccer game! They all spoke English very well. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, the Castelo which is near Alfama and is a 7 minute walk down to the Baixa (downtown) where there are plenty of restaurants and a few train stations. We enjoyed the location, close to the action but not in it. I would caution that the hotel is up a hill, so the quickest way up and down is via stairs. We didn't mind, and the stairs are manageable for all shapes and sizes. However, I would suggest for people with a lot of luggage taking a taxi to/from the airport. We had a wonderful trip - I would highly recommend this hotel.

This is a lovely small boutique hotel. My room was on the top floor (4th) with a wall of windows facing the beautiful view of Lisbon to the sea. The room was large with a sitting room and marble bathroom. Lovely furnishings and immaculate. Great breakfast, but only bar food - sandwiches and omlettes. Nearest restaurant is not close, but interesting location just below the old castle in old town. I would stay there again.

Accommodating. Upgraded items. Professional. Relaxing.
