Solar do Castelo

Rua das Cozinhas 2, Lisbon, Lisbon, 1100-181, Portugal

A member of the Historic Hotels of Europe, this boutique hideaway is located in an 18th-century mansion within the walls of Saint George's Castle. Original architectural features have been lovingly restored and archaeological finds put on display. Featuring classical furnishings and subtle color schemes, the standard rooms in the original building offer river views; rooms in the newer wing incorporate parts of the castle wall. A sun-drenched courtyard acts as a breakfast area and is home to a family of peacocks. Luxurious touches abound, including Molton Brown toiletries. There's no restaurant, but there are plenty nearby; the Solar also has 24-hour room service and a sociable free afternoon tea (or espresso). Vehicle access is restricted here, but a golf cart will fetch you from the nearest bus or streetcar stop.
