The first thing I loved about this hotel was how flexible they were and understanding - we had planned to go last year but due to a family emergency had to postpone and by time we got back this July it was actually over a year later but the lovely team at Solar Do Castelo did not quibble and allowed us to use our pre-paid amount in July. The location is amazing - within the castle walls - and one of the things we loved is that unlike other cities, the area around the hotel was a true neighbourhood with real people living their lives and was not some Disney-fied tourist precinct. Lisbon is a super cool city, albeit slightly shabby (which I think is part of the charm) and this area typifies that. Our room was very nice - not super trendy and slightly outdated decor but comfortable and nice touches like Molton Brown toiletries. I loved having breakfast in the courtyard and I loved the fact that pastel de natas, otherwise known as Portuegese custard tarts, we're part of the buffet. Dangerous! I will def stay here again when I comeback to Lisbon (which I hope is very soon).
