Thinking of booking a trip to Lisbon? There’s no shortage of hotels to choose from in the city. In fact, 251 to be exact (according to TripAdvisor). I absolutely LOVE researching hotels. In fact, I feel like I was a travel agent in another life since I enjoy it so much! Before going on a trip, I spend hours (even days) combing through articles and photos and reading reviews before making a decision. When trying to figure out where to stay in Lisbon, Pestana Palace Hotel Lisboa was an easy choice.

The property is nothing short of magnificent! Pestana Palace Hotel is not only a beautiful place to stay, but it’s also a historic destination and national monument, since it’s a restored 19th century palace known as Valle-Flôr. One step foot into the gates and you’re instantly transported to another world. Surrounded by beautiful hand-painted tiles, paintings, marble and frescoes, the Palace makes you feel like royalty for a day! Move over Kate, there’s a new Duchess in town. Just kidding, just kidding.

CHECK-IN

Since our flight into Lisbon landed at 8:00am, we arrived early to the hotel. While we couldn’t check-in to the room immediately, the staff was incredibly welcoming and accommodating. They gave us a tour of the property and offered to host us at lunch or by the pool. If you plan to arrive early in Lisbon be prepared to get to the hotel no earlier than 3:00pm, especially in high season. Regardless, there is so much to explore in the city that’s it’s easy to pass the time! One quick side note: if you rent a car, there is plenty of street parking in the area. We found a spot across the street! Otherwise, the hotel does offer valet parking for a fee.

WHAT WE ATE

For dinner, we ordered room service. By that time, the jet lag had set in and we could barely move out of bed. The meal arrived hot, fresh, and even included the hot sauce I had requested. If memory serves me correctly, I ordered an omelette with a side salad. Strange, I know. But it was the perfect way to end the evening. The next morning, we had to skip breakfast in order to get on the road to Cascais. However, we did pop to see the incredible brunch. The variety was amazing – something for everyone! Also, the staff was wonderful to help us get two coffees to go!

WHAT ROOM WE STAYED IN

Since we only stayed on the property for a night, we chose to stay in the Classic City View King which is located in the new wing of the Palace. The new wing is much more modern, yet still has the sophisticated details and designs that you would expect from the property. The room is a decent size with a desk, side chair and beautiful view. Plus, there’s free wifi (always a must)! When we arrived in our room and started settling in, we received a knock at the door. They sent us a tray of sweets and chocolates. Such a thoughtful gesture! All in all, if you can splurge to stay in the old wing of the palace, DO IT. I can only imagine how cool it must be!
