This hotel definitely made our trip to Lisbon very memorable. The hotel service attendant (Rui) took the time to explain the main attractions as well as the surrounding area- he was friendly, polite and suggested attractions that were worth visiting. Throughout the entire stay the service was impeccable.
One of the drawbacks of rooms in Europe is usually hotel rooms but we were pleasantly surprised with the size of the standard room at this hotel- much bigger than we expected. The views were amazing and speed of wifi was excellent.
The location of the hotel is great as there are many cafes, restaurants located within walking distance. If you are planning on staying at this hotel, please note it is on the hill so to get to central Lisbon, you may have to walk or take the tram (about 10 mins to walk).
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Lisbon. Thanks to all the staff at Olissippo Castelo for taking our trip very memorable!
P.S. I also recommend dining at Portas Do Sol if you stay at the hotel- great views and nice patio
