Positive Reviews

Central, yet peaceful, location.

The Alfama District is a popular one; playing host to St George Castle, numerous cafes and restaurants, a bustling flea market and a lot else besides. The hotel has an enviable location within it and guests love that, while within easy reach of the City Centre and Old Town, it enjoys a peaceful setting.

Well-maintained throughout.

Common areas and rooms are modern, well-maintained, and kept meticulously clean. You should find the rooms to be spacious and light, with large beds and, if you opt to upgrade, stunning- with City views from a big terrace.

Knowledgable staff.

Staff at Olissippo Castelo are friendly and attentive, speak excellent English, and are knowledgable about the local area. You'll find they are more than happy to recommend the best spot to visit and give directions if required.

Negative Reviews

Perhaps not for the less mobile.

Lisbon is a hilly City and the hotel occupies a space on one of the larger hills. Those with less mobility may want to consider the steep hills and numerous steps nearby before booking, although, public elevators linking the area to Downtown Lisbon do run from nearby.

Wi-Fi inconsistent.

While Wi-Fi works well in some room, it is barely usable in others. Previous guests have expressed frustration with the log-in process too; describing it as unnecessarily complex.

A little rough around the edges.

Although some guests love the neighbourhood, others are less keen. There are some vacant buildings nearby and some graffiti daubed around(as there is in many parts of Lisbon) but, in general, guests feel safe here and love that the cafes are full of locals rather than tourists.
