Palacete Chafariz D'El Rei
Ranked #5 of 254 Lisbon B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 November 2011

La Palacete was an experience of utter beauty. Rui and staff could not have been more wonderful. Rui has taken an abandoned property and restored it so lovingly and with such style and comfort and attention to detail. Paradise in Lisbon!

Room Tip: Rooms have names...we loved Lola! We faced the river...truly beautiful.

If you want to be happy in Lissabon with your partner, take this Hotel near the Center and Harbour . The Rooms are wonderfull and the Service too kind. Never ever had such an original Stay in a City.
The Start of the Day is a very nicely served breakfast in One of These wonderfull Rooms Looking Out on the tejo.

We had read great reviews about the Palacete and about Rui, the owner/host. We also saw beautiful pictures online -- but none of it compared to the actual experience when we go there. Rui greeted us when we arrived (9:30 am, after flying all night), and that was the beginning of a wonderfully memorable stay. He could not have been more gracious and helpful all through our visit - from recommending restaurants and making reservations for us, to just being his charming self!

We had a "junior" suite, but what a room it was! Just gorgeous, with fabulous furniture and wonderful amenities. The bedroom/bathroom setup was entirely unique! The entire setting was amazing -- Rui and his partner have restored this "Palace" wonderfully. Oh, and since it IS a B&B - the breakfast was suitably elegant and delicious, with table settings fit for a king and queen.

We'd highly recommend the Palacete to anyone visiting Lisbon, and we certainly would never stay anywhere else if we return that that most-charming city. The location is also perfect for sightseeing around the old historic district of the city.

Room Tip: Choose ANY room here!! We originally had asked for a "regular" suite - but they were book...

We have stayed for three nights at the Chafariz Del Rei and when we got there, we were welcome by the manager Rui that presented us a surprising upgrade for the Suite Lola that is astonishingly beautiful with an amazing light and a view overlooking the river ...wow....what a comfortable room ... we had to force ourselves out of the hotel to explore the city every morning!! Everything was so clean and the attention to details is incredible. This hotel goes beyond of the traditional Boutique Hotel concept, this is actually your home in Lisbon. I usually stay in Boutique Hotels all over the world because me and my wife love to travel and we hate the typical chain hotels. This is defnetely one of the best Hotels i have ever stayed! Thank you Chafariz Del Rei's Team an keep up the good work!
And let me say that Lisbon is such an incredible city and people are so nice and friendly everywhere you go, you feel at home from the very beginning.

If we are ever lucky enough to go back to Lisbon from Sydney, Palacete Chafariz D'El Rei will be the only place we will stay. The accommodation is outstanding, comfortable and beautiful with every possible amenity, but it is the service which makes this a stand out. It is the first B&B that I have stayed in where the staff have struck a perfect balance between assistance and privacy.

I am not sure about some of the information in the reviews below, but in addition to the exceptional bedrooms, there are a range of entertainment and sitting areas which are also available to guests. We used these on a number of occasions and were encouraged to do so. Drinks are available and the staff are more than willing to assist with these.

The B&B is magnificently decorated and the owners have been loyal to the original design.

The location on the edge of the Alfama is perfect and completely safe. The B&B is surrounded by fabulous restaurants in every price range.

We have stayed in four and five star hotels and B&B's around Europe and the rest of the world and I have no hesitation in saying that this accommodation is easily on a par with the best of them.

We did stay at another hotel in Lisbon after travelling around Portugal and I wished I had rebooked here.

Stay here if you want an authentic Lisbon experience.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms here would be excellent.

We agree with most of the positive comments about this spectacular and beautiful guest house: interesting yet convenient location, tremendous view over the river, lovely interiors to look at, friendly reception and service, comfortable room and shower etc. Do not be put off by the unpromising exterior by the entrance and steps!

So why only 4 stars, not 5, from us? Firstly there is a bit of a problem with interior noise transference. Late or early arrivals on the floor above, or in the hall below, are infrequent but loudly heard when they do occur. Secondly it would have been fun to use the public rooms for a coffee or
glass of wine instead of having to go out - maybe it was possible but we never saw anybody do it and there was no indication it was part of the offering. Thirdly, and this is trivial, but offered as constructive criticism, the accessories need reviewing through a more practical, dare I say female, pair of eyes. The bedroom for example is great with electronic gadgets, adapters and Wifi but lacks basics like a box of tissues or sanitary bags. The dining room offers an amusing combination of low seat and high cocktail glass for your fruit or cereal, with impractically small coffee cups and plates to follow.

But all in all a thoroughly recommendable place and experience, and we are delighted we stayed there and wish them the very best of luck with their venture.

This is one of the loveliest places I have ever stayed, its beautiful inside with the owner having kept original portugese touches. If you can stretch to the Deluxe suite as a treat - it is awesome. Set on 2 floors, huge room with the biggest shower I have ever seen, 2 balconies and the a fantastic private roof terrace with views across the city, perfect for pre dinner drinks! The staff are probably the best bit though, so smiley and helpful and the owner is always availble for great restaurant recommendations and ideas of what to do during your stay in Lisbon. Great location with the older part of the city right on your doorstep, I agree about the immediate surrounding area but dont let it put you off, I never felt unsafe. It doesnt feel like a hotel but your own home in a beautiful city. Personally cant wait to go back and am already organising my next trip to Palacete Chafraiz D'el Rei!
