The hotel is situated inside the castle and is a converted traditional building full of character. The courtyard is lovely, you can spend hours reading your book. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is close to Alfama in the old part of Lisbon, but there may be a slight problem, if you have problems with walking because it requires lots of walking up and down hills.
There are some aspects concerning the apartment which make it very good rather than exceptional value for money. It is on the coast which I liked. It is obviously very new, and the apartment itself is HUGE - in fact I rattled around in it a little. The kitchen and bathroom are excellent facilities. Sadly, although it is new, the owners have clearly not paid for its upkeep and maintenance, and there is a state of disrepair apparent: the shower wand holder hanging off the wall; a ragged curled-up mat corner; a piece of veneer peeling off the TV unit; no handle on the toilet brush holder. The WiFi is non-existent. It did not work throughout my stay. I always bring an ethernet cable, and the wired internet only worked sporadically. As I said - spoiled by certain elements which could and should be fixed.
My wife and I loved our stay here. Very distinctive and charming. Their breakfast is made to order and the best I have ever experienced! The staff service is second to none and I have stayed at some great hotels. Avoid if you have walking issues...stairs could be a problem for some. The bed and pillows were a bit hard for my preference but everything else

"River-view rooms in the heart of historic Lisbon"
We were very happy with our stay in Sweet Lisbon. The rooms were very comfortable and had a great view of the river. The common kitchen was available for simple meal preparation. Breakfast is included. The bathrooms are shared, but both the men's and women's bathrooms have two shower stalls and two toilette stalls; so there were no line-ups.
Nice hotel for the price
Bit of a climb to the hotel - 2 flights of stairs but not too bad and located centrally too
Bathroom is shared but not usually a queue : )
Terrace is beautiful to sit and relax at night and views are great
Great value in central location inside Alfama
