Planning a city break to Lisbon? Then the Hotel Solar do Castelo Inn is not to be missed! The bed & breakfast hotel is situated in the famous Castle of São Jorge in the historic old town of Lisbon and offers the perfect combination of a great location, friendly service, excellent facilities and a romantic ambiance.
The city hotel Solar do Castelo Inn is part of the Castle of São Jorge, one of the landmarks of the city of Lisbon. High above the city, guests have wonderful views over the town within an historic ambiance behind thick walls. The building of this city hotel still today carries the name “Palacete das Cozinhas”, which roughly translates as “kitchen villa”, because it’s situated near to the former palace kitchen. It was built in the 18th century and is characterized by a suitably historic atmosphere: elegant floors, a stone courtyard, small statues, a water fountain and wooden roof constructions are reminiscent of the long history of this small hotel in Lisbon. It’s no wonder then that the Hotel Solar do Castelo Inn is a world heritage site!
The whole of the interior is very modern and offers all the mod cons you would expect from a modern hotel. Each of the 14 individually decorated rooms (the design of the bed & breakfast hotel is down to the well-known interior designer Graca Viterbo) has an LCD TV with DVD player, free wireless internet, a desk, a hairdryer and bath robes. Small details quickly make the city hotel Solar do Castelo Inn into a second home. For example you can borrow films for free from reception and every morning you’ll find a fresh apple in front of your door!
As the Castle of São Jorge is not accessible to cars, the Hotel Solar do Castelo Inn is very quiet despite its central location in the heart of Lisbon. At the same time it’s just a few minutes to the well-known sights of the city. It’s 500m to the banks of the River Tagus and the historic Alfama district, with its countless shopping opportunities, restaurants, cafés and boutiques, begins right behind the castle walls. Belém, the historic center with its countless sights, boutiques, restaurants and cafés is not much further away. Its proximity to and historic relationship with the city center make the Hotel Solar do Castelo Inn a great place to stay for a city break to Lisbon!
