Pestana Palace Lisboa Hotel & National Monument
Housed in a restored 19th century palace, this classic 5 star hotel is surrounded by its own private garden, which means you can’t get a more romantic and quiet setting in Lisbon. The pool is amazing, and the views are stunning with the River Tejo unfolding before your eyes. The hotel is a bit outside of the tourist spots, though no more than a few minutes by public transport or taxi.
The Torel Palace is a true oasis to be discovered in the middle of Lisbon. Unlike any ordinary guesthouse, it is composed of two 19th century mansions with beautiful high ceilings and huge floor to ceiling windows overlooking the city. The romance allure is everywhere in the surrounding gardens and the beautiful pool.
Overlooking the castle walls and the Baixa district, this 4 star hotel is in a magical location. Some rooms have a private terrace. The castle is just a few minutes away, and the Baixa is easily reachable. Note that climbing back the steep and cobbled streets round the hotel may not be easy for people with mobility problems.
