Great experience staying here...all facilities excellent,even the included breakfast. You need to be fit to stay here though as it hilltop location is a hard walk. Staff amazing. We breakfasted in courtyard in nov!! Tip...buy 6e travel pass from metro and tram/bus everywhere.
I stayed at the Olissippo Castelo for 4 nights in November with my husband and daughter for a birthday celebration. We booked two rooms and I emailed in advance to ask if we could have adjoining rooms if possible, preferably with a view. Although I did not get a reply to this email the hotel staff had received it and a copy was printed off with our reservation details. They accommodated my request and we had two lovely, clean and spacious rooms next to each other with a beautiful view of the city & the local parish church.
The hotel staff were all excellent, very friendly & helpful & nothing was too much trouble. Particular mention must go to Rui who was more than happy help and enthusiastically recommended things to see and do in Lisbon even when we checked in quite late in the evening.
Breakfast was included with our booking & this was very good value. There was fresh coffee & juices every morning along with fresh breads, pastries & fruit. Not to mention meats, cheeses & a selection of eggs, bacon & sausages.
The only drawback to the hotel (and it's not really a drawback) is the location. The hotel is located at the top of a very steep hill with extremely narrow, cobbled streets leading up to it which could prove difficult for some people and parking would be a nightmare if you hired a car. Walking wasn't really an issue for us as the weather was very pleasant but I imagine in high summer or in rain it would become much more difficult.
Overall we had a great stay.
This apartment was gorgeous (we had a studio penthouse)! Close to small shops, eateries, the tram stop and the Castle! Our apartment was cleaned each day we were there. The bed was very comfy and we had everything that we needed. A lovely bonus was the free fresh fruit and water that was waiting for us when we arrived. The (cheap) mini bar was great as well. The best thing for us, was the 3 (!) little balconies which were a sun-trap and had brilliant views out to the Tagus. I really would highly recommend these apartments.
This is truly an amazing hotel. I have stayed in many luxury hotels, but never one that treats service with such passion and natural sense of service. Everything is of the highest quality. The hotel itself is beautifully restored and has the comfort of any modern hotel. The staff though makes everything special. Everything they do is first rate and done with ease; including providing the breakfast to us at 3:45 am to accommodate our early flight. I could not give any hotel a higher recommendation.

In the heart of a district which is home to fashion designers and famous singers, this superb example of 19th century …More
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
I chose this hotel because I need to take the rain from the Santa Apolonia station the next day and wanted to be able to walk there. Was very pleasantly surprised by the size of the hotel, which has a nice kitchenette, living room and bedroom.
Everything was very clean and there was even a basket of fruit on the table to greet me! Would definitely come back for a longer stay as the kitchen is a great practical feature.
"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.
