    Set around a beautiful sub-tropical garden on the most prestigious of Lisbon’s seven hills is a stately 19th Century palace that houses the gracious 5-star Lapa Palace Hotel.

    The original Palace, built in 1870, was completely renovated in 2003, with craftsmen recreating, by hand, furniture in the 18th century styles of the Portuguese monarchs João V, José and Maria I. Rich fabrics and superior furnishings contribute to the tasteful elegance of these palatial guest areas and rooms, each of which are individually decorated and furnished.

    The elegant rooms at the Lapa Palace are bright and airy. Most rooms have a balcony with magnificent views of the Tagus River or the pool and  garden.

    Restaurant Hotel Lapa serves fine Mediterranean cuisine and regional wines, while Le Pavillion, during summer time, serves cocktails, homemade iced teas and fruit juices around the pool. On warmer days, meals can be enjoyed on the terrace. In the evenings, the live music is featured.

    The Lapa Palace Spa features a sauna and a Turkish bath. The masseuses are also available to provide massages tailored to the individual client. There is also a modern gym equipped with cardiovascular equipment.
