My husband and I stayed here for just one night, and there were lots of things I loved and a couple of things you should know if you're thinking about making a reservation.
The hotel is a gorgeous home - absolutely lovely. A beautiful pool and patio area (which we didn't take advantage of), well-appointed rooms, and just a wonderful, authentic Portuguese home, which is exactly what I wanted.
The staff are outstanding - friendly, helpful, good recommendations. Laura is an absolute delight. They also arranged for an early (delicious, gourmet) breakfast for us so that we could get to the airport.
On the downside, our room faced Rua Janelas Verdes, which was loud (cars). Normally, I don't care about noise that much, but it seemed like there were cars all night long driving along that cobbled road, and it was just loud, even with the window & shutters closed. I had a pretty restless night. Not a big deal, but people who are sensitive to noise should avoid one of these rooms. It's very possible that rooms facing the back are quiet.
Also, it's about a half hour walk to the heart of everything (although you can catch a bus right in front of the hotel). We walked everywhere in Lisbon and the weather was wonderful, so we didn't mind the walk. But just know that this place is a little bit away from the center of action.
All in all, I would definitely recommend Palacio Ramalhete, and I cannot say enough about how nice the staff are, but request a room that does not overlook Janelas Verdes.
