    The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, especially the concierge-team. they were not just amazingly supportive in every way but did everything with joy and were even really funny. you always had the feeling that everybody does the best and even rushes to make you feel most comfortable. the garden/park with the pool are unique and make the whole place really amazing, you absolutely feel like in a palace. the view over the garden to the river is just breathtaking. we had a wonderful stay and could not have chosen better.

    Fabulous

    I very much enjoyed the pool area and the spa and i would like to give a special mention to the wonderful beauty therapist who was so welcoming ,informative and professional.She made my visit so memorable and relaxing.

    The location was not very suitable for walking as it was very hilly.

    Our stay at the Olissippo was absolutely wonderful. The minute we drove in we felt welcome. The staff at reception were friendly and accomadating. Even though we were very early to check in after a short wait we were allowed into our room which was much appreciated after a long and tiring flight. Throughout our 3 day stay we found ALL THE STAFF to be very helpful and friendly. Thank you to all!!!!

    Room fantastic. Staff excellent. Lovely pool .spa treatment excellent.

    I thought 28 euros for breakfast was too expensive. We took a taxi to a lovely bakery had great breakfast and it was still half that price.

    Very good

    The overwhelming courtesy and welcome. Concierge extremely helpful. Good, quiet location in the embassy district, yet only 5 minutes from main part of city. Swimming pool and spa both excellent. And great "home-made" ice cream/sorbets!

    An excellent overall stay. But a few pointers. Hotel is not quite up to 5 star standard. We had a few plumbing problems that were not attended to in our visit. Lisbon is a city of hills, so do not expect to walk too far around the hotel - unless you are superfit. Access to main city centre will always be by taxi. The hotel is a little "tired". Comfortable, certainly, but dated. This is particularly true of the furniture in the common parts, notably the restaurant and lounge areas, which were like a time warp back into the eighties. The price for the hotel room is too high, when combined with breakfast. The buffet there at 27 euros per person is seriously overpriced. Coffee awful and no egg chef. Best to get a deal on the room to include breakfast. But the hotel does provide superb old world charm, and is still to be recommended.

    i loved it all. from the moment i stepped from my taxi, was greeted by a friendly staff member, taken to my beautiful, beautiful room and more. fresh flowers, fresh linens, fresh air, beautiful view overlooking the pool, waterfall, and lush plantings. i will come again, and look forward to my next visit. thank you, staff of Lapa Palace.. it was a wonderful ending to my stay of 2 weeks in Portugal....5 star yes yes yes and then some!!!
