The elegant Hotel Olissippo Castelo sits atop Alfama, just in front of the castle, from where it looks out over the hills of Graça. The location is ideal for those more into scenery than a central location. Stately and serene, this hotel is certainly a splurge—though with these perks, the room rates are justified.
The Olissippo has 24 rooms and suites decorated in classic style with a pastel palette, attractive wallpaper and quality reproduction furniture. All rooms are non-smoking and come equipped with air conditioning, satellite TV and a safe. Private baths sparkle and are have a bathtub, hair dryer and toiletries.
Rooms on the first floor are the largest, though they lack views. Rooms on the second and third floors have large balconies with attractive patio furniture and fantastic views. (We could sit on that balcony all day.) Finally, rooms on the top (fourth) floor offer the best views, although they lack balconies.
A continental breakfast is included in the room rate. Wi-Fi is offered for free throughout the hotel.
The Olissippo has three other properties in Lisbon: the Olissippo Oriente in Parque Nações, the Olissippo Marquês de Sa and the five-star (gulp!) Olissippo Lapa Palace.

About the Olissippo Castelo neighborhood
To the East of Baixa, Alfama, Lisbon's castle district, sits perched above the Baixa. The Castelo de São Jorge is its crowning glory. Having survived the earthquake of 1755, the district is charmingly chaotic, with pockets of restaurants and shops, alleyways, little parks and broad views over the river.
