6 nice and excellent rooms at this 19th century palace. Very clean and comfortable rooms with good bed. Super breakfast. Close to city centre in Alfama near the castle. You can reach almost everything by walking or by tram. Excellent service.

We loved this little secret palace--it lived up to all our expectations, and was an amazing respite. The quirky mansion is intelligently and imaginatively restored, and the hosts are rightly proud of it. From the moment Maria peeked out of the beautiful hidden door, which astonishingly opens from a bleak tiny alley--(entering is kind of like going through Alice's looking...

Was recommended this place by a friend and i was more than surprised at just how beautiful it was! It really is a special place to stay, fuelled with a beauty, decadence and a personal touch. Special mention to Maria and Rui, they could not have been more friendly and helpful. Maria has a special sparkle which makes you feel...

This is more like the guest house you never dared imagine than an anonymous hotel. There are only six rooms, along with beautiful public rooms and terrace. Everyone is treated like a welcome guest, and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are wonderful and remove any need for lunch – even with Lisbon's late dining to hold out for....

If you're looking for a very special place to stay in Lisbon, then stay at the Palacete Chafariz D'El Rei. This is a small boutique hotel, and is beautifully appointed throughout, with much attention to detail. It feels like walking into the set of a period film, or inhabiting the pages of a luxury lifestyle magazine. The attentive and discrete...

The hotel is a masterpiece, but when adding the exceptional service of the staff, no other hotel in Lisbon even warrants consideration. Anything you could possibly want or need will be taken care of. The courtesy, professionalism, and hospitality extended by Rui, Maria and Helosia are unlike any I've experienced in Europe (daily Helosia bakes a cake for morning breakfast...

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
