Knowing very well the city and a few hotels there this is certainly our favorite, No matter if in winter in its cosy piano bar, or in the summer in the astonishing swimming pool. We have been there a few times and this hotel has become part of our life. This is a classic luxury hotel, in style and service... in an emblematic neighborhood of the city

We returned in April for a long weekend, having visited previously during the height of Summer. The hotel was looking immaculate and the staff all around were first-rate. The team in the Bar are fantastic. No weak links at this Leading Hotel.

On arrival, we enjoyed a surprise up-grade to a River View room. The amenities were perfect and, when the weather improved, the minor adjustment needed to the air-con was carried out very promptly, without fuss. If you enjoy fine dining, the well-appointed Restaurant has an extensive, imaginative menu. If relaxed, informal dining and / or a slow cocktail is your thing, then head for the beautiful Bar with its adjoining terrace overlooking the river. The team in the Bar are just brilliant: so efficient, polite and charming. Why would we want to be anywhere else? The weather became warm enough for Breakfast al fresco, which was a real treat after a long, wet, UK winter.

The gardens are lovely, too, being terraced and featuring a beautiful outdoor pool. There is also a small paddling pool for tots. (I did not visit on this trip, but there is a Spa and indoor pool, too.)

Rooms with a pool and garden view are very nice. There is also a wonderful function room on the main level, which would be a gorgeous location for smaller weddings. This hotel is not in the city centre, but a taxi is readily available and the few minutes' trip to reach there costs about 5 Euros.

Am already working on the plan for our next visit. The staff guarantee that you will want to return!

Room Tip: Rooms with a pool and garden view are very pleasant indeed and have a private balcony with a table...

Stayed here for 2 nights, my wifes choice, after having stayed the first part of our holiday in my choice of a trendier hotel on the other side of Lisbon. I was expecting the Lapa Palace to be too glitzy for my tastes, overly attentive staff and stuffy dress code etc..... but how wrong I was, it's brilliant, a genuine piece of "riviera type" luxury, bliss after a day trudging the sights. The staff were all very good at their job but easy going, the guest room (we were 6th floor in the main building) was great, good views, spacious & well appointed. Yes the furniture and decor are a bit "1980's Dallas" style, and the grounds, pool & spa are similarly styled, but it all works and is very, very enjoyable. Any downsidses ? not really, it's a fair walk to the centre, but not too far, we walked to the centre each day, and the bar prices are a bit steep if you're planning to stay in the bar all night !

Have just returned from 2 night stay at this superb hotel. One of the few 5 star rated places that really warrants its rating. Lovely large room overlooking the garden and pool - unusual for a city centre hotel. Service was excellent. Worth every penny!

This hotel is quite outstanding! Rooms with river view (6th. floor preferrably) with fantastic views of the tropical garden with pool and the river (more like a wide fjord) in the background! The location is also best possible; some 20 minutes walk in carismatic narrow streets or the trams which passes just few minutes away! The personnel is very friendly and service minded! Breakfast buffet has everything you could wish; hot and cold dishes! Also an indoor pool and a well equipped fitness room is worth mentioning! My only concern is a rather weak wifi (free)! Quite unstable and a max downloading speed of less than 1 Mbs (room 622) is not quite in line with the hotel standard! Room for improvement here!

The Olisippo Lapa Palace is a classic and stylish 5 star hotel!

It works very well for business and private trips.

We enjoyed hospitality of Hotel personnel, large rooms plus the fantastic garden and can recommend this Hotel in a more remote city area of Lisboa.
