Tucked away on a cobbled street, this four-star hotel below the castle walls has won prizes from local conservationists and plaudits from foreign visitors. The rooms (and two suites) are plush and elegant, and some have balconies with fabulous views. Space elsewhere is at a premium – breakfast is included but there’s no restaurant, just a lobby bar.
The hotel is a steep walk up from the Baixa, but of the other Olissippo hotels in the city – at Saldanha, in Parque das Nações and in Lapa – only the latter can beat it for sheer charm, and it looks more and more of a bargain as nearby rivals hike their rates.
