Olissippo Lapa Palace: the most opulent of Lisbon's palace hotels

A sublime hotel nestled in lush greenery slightly off the city centre, it is famous for its family atmosphere.

Perched high above the city in the heart of the embassy quarter, the Olissippo Lapa Palace Hotel is a hotel benchmark. There are subtropical gardens and 100-year-old trees on the grounds of this former palace, which was built in the 19th century by the Marquis de Valencia. If you are sensitive to the historical dimension of places, choose one of 22 luxurious rooms decorated exactly as they were originally, with handcrafted copies of antique furniture and a natural colour palette accented with touches of gold. The view of the river from the terrace of Room 701 is breath-taking. Sip a cocktail under glittering chandeliers while ensconced in one of the red sofas of the Rio Tejo Bar before sampling the delicious Mediterranean cuisine at Lapa Restaurant - a parillada of fish and octopus with sweet potato purée, for example - or at the Pavillon Restaurant Bar if you are in the mood for something lighter. The outdoor pool is heated all year round.
