Editorial review:

This 19th-century hilltop castle has an incredible staff that bends over backwards for the guests. The facilities are top-notch, there's a private garden, a great pool, and an amazing wellness center. The rooms have outstanding furnishings and the closets are the best. The restaurant was loved by the guests. It's a bit far to downtown Lisbon on foot, so going by limousine or taxi is recommended. There's no smoking in the hotel.

                              The spa and the comfortable beds.

                              What I disliked the most about this hotel is that fact that I felt it was overly priced in comparison to the other hotels that I saw. The room didn't even have a coffee machine and if you wanted coffee, you had to call room service and order coffee for 4 euros. When I asked them about this, they merely said that I should upgrade my room to a suite in order for me to have a coffee machine in my room. Half of the staff were very friendly while the other half seemed a bit rude and arrogant.

                              I liked everything about the hotel. The staff were very helpful, the room was just right with all the facilities I wanted, the restaurants and bars had good food and service and the pool area was a great place to relax. It lived up to or even exceeded my expectations. I hope to return next time I am in Lisbon.

                              Nothing - unusually!

                              Staff were the best yet, a proper hotel, clean freindly, good food, wonderful room. Bit of a mission to find it, but a real jem, well worth it.

                              The directions from where we were starting from to the hotel were imposssible to follow,by car. we hired a taxi and had him drive there while we followed behind.

                              From the time we arrived we were made to feel as though we were receiving a personal service; the staff were all very attentive and the attention to detail throughout the hotel was admirable. Breakfasts were excellent and the superb dinners on the hotel terrace memorable.

                              The location of the hotel in an elevated section of the city, within the embassy area is somewhat remote from the centre and we seemed to be the only couple to actually walk there although a tram service is available within a few minutes walk.

                              Excellent service, very nice rooms and swimming pool

                              Rather far away from downtown. A shuttle bus would have been perfect to overcome the distance

                              It's a palace and deserves all its stars in each of every single details. Deserts are gorgeous and are worth the temptations. Most beautiful bathroom we ever saw. (We had a suite with terrace on the garden view, top floor in the west wing.)

                              nice location, close to city center, stylish

                              there was a private party fot other hotel guests on saturday night at the pool. So the hotel changed from being great, quiet and stylish to a vulgar night club/ dance hall. Despite our many polite requests the music stayed absurdely loud and we could not sleep before 3:AM. We had to get up at 5:AM to go to the airport...

                              We were upgraded to better room which was really nice with gorgeous view on river

                              Sometimes we were feeling even "overtreated" - probably too much attention - but in fact everything was really good.

                              This hotel is truly lovely. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Diner in hotel was beautiful: service and food quality and presentation. Buffet breakfast also very good. On weddingday of our daughter a bottle of champagne and bowl of fresh cherries with cream. Very thoughtful!
