“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

A wonderful stay at the Chafariz Del ReiHotel : everything was perfect.
It was as beautiful as in a James Ivory 's movy.
It a former palace perfectly removed with a very good taste. The owners and the team were so nice and did avrything to be pleasant. The hotel is perfectly located to see all the town.
Thanks to the team...and see you soon!
Claire and André-Noël from Paris

Room Tip: We choose the Tower room : the view was amazing! You see the Taje and the old town all around.

The Palacete was home away from home!

We stayed at the stunning Palacete Chafariz for our honeymoon (only two nights) but the staff welcomed us with open arms and made out stay feel more like 4 days! Everyone from Evan, Rui to Maria went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed at all times. We were able to check into our room early and they provided us with breakfast on our roof.
The hotel is beautiful and has such charm. A definite breath of fresh air from all the standard hotel chains you could stay at. If you appreciate decor, history and charm this is the place for you.
We splurged and got the nicest room which had its own private staircase and patios. The room had the most beautiful shower, living room and sitting room just up a few spiral stairs.
There's free wifi that works consistently. The staff even did our wash, for free, one night!

We truly highly recommend the hotel and staying in the Alfama area. Palacete is in a great location with walking distance to all major sites. There are friendly artists and elders around every corner you walk.

Can't wait to visit Palacete again someday on a wedding anniversary.

Room Tip: splurge and get the suite with the private entrance and (2) patios!

The entire place is better seen "live" as the beautiful online pictures don't quite render the majesty of the building. Room Paula is as seen: large, comfortable, carefully assembled in every detail.
The staff is extremely kind and ready to suggest how to best enjoy Lisbon.
Amazing breakfast. The little garden facing the river is a little jem.
Worth the staying if you are looking for a luxury escape. Fabulous!

This is our first visit to Lisbon. We had no time to search for hotels therefore with only comment we read, we decided to book for one night at Palacete Chafariz hotel. When we arrived, i just shocked by the beauty of the hotel and kindness of the crew. I stayed at different hotels with different styles ln Europe but This hotel has the Magic that take you in it. I hope next time i will stay longer.

The best way to travel in a new country is when you manage to live “with” the people of that country rather than simply “next” to them. Entering their lives, sharing their time, joys and worries, is what makes a trip an unforgetable deep experience and helps you to understand the world where you are spending your holidays.
If you decide to spend your time in Lisbon in Palacete Chafariz del Rei you will get this feeling and much more. Indeed if you book one of the six rooms\suites in this century old palace you will find yourself sorrounded by a silent, professional, young and devoted team that belong to the house and is attached to it as much as you are to yours. You do not see anyone when you want to be alone – so that you feel you have a three-storey villa for yourself !- but whenever you need, they are there for you. They will surprise you from the arrival by accomodating with flexibility your needs, in the morning with a rich buffet which differs slightly every day in some special way. Very healthy and tasty at the same time, with juices that are mix of different fruits everyday, excellent yogurt and chocolate cake, and probably the tastiest scrambled eggs ever, and more than that. You can decide where you want to have breakfast, whether in one of the sittings rooms, or in the garden facing the river and of course in one of the suites.
You can also have a break during the day with excellent snaks or enjoy a cocktail in the library.
No furniture in the house is fake or built in series. All items, from the piano to the furniture, is kind of a unique piece and is testimony of the Portugal that has seen better days. In a museum you would not get such a strong feeling of history, architecture, culture and discovery. Though the house is a century old, it is very comfortable as it has been very well restored.
Moreover the hotel is situated in the ancient Alfama district which is strategically located both at few minutes walking distance from the old castle and from the wonderful square Praca do Comerco and the Chiado district with his shopping streets.
Difficult to find better.

Room Tip: Spend a little bit more and go for the big rooms facing the river. They also have the best bathroom...
