Attractive, intimate and unpretentious (much like the ideal date), the Solar dos Mouros has 12 individually decorated rooms and amazing vistas: From some rooms you can see both the castle and the river. This six-story hotel has it all—well, except for an elevator. Expect a hike in rates (and stairs) for better views.
In general, rooms are spacious and airy with hardwood floors and large windows. Stereos, books and chic seating keep it stylish. All rooms are air conditioned and outfitted with television, phone and minibar. An attic room offers awesome bird's-eye views and an incredible bathroom, though the very low ceiling is better suited for shorter guests.
Four suites on the ground floor line a pretty garden. Decorated in bold colors, they have flat-panel televisions and wicker rockers. There's also an absurdly large apartment with a full kitchen and living room on the ground level.
Owned by painter Louis Lemos, the hotel sports a colorful, modern look. Abstract artwork, including much of the owner's, is on display throughout, and décor is a pleasant mix of contemporary design paired with older artifacts.
A hatch in the floor leads to an archeological dig. Apparently there are Roman ruins in the basement.
The Mouros isn't cheap, but it does offer promotions every now and again. Check the Web site.
Note: Make sure to call and confirm your reservation before arriving to avoid any overbooking mishaps.

About the Solar Dos Mouros 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.
