• Rooms
    Painstakingly restored by French owner Frederic Coustols, the 11 suites at Palacio Belmonte contain remnants of Roman towers and regional blue-and-white tiles; some have terraces with views over the city to the river. Many of the rooms have en-suite verandas looking out over the River Tagus and the hotel's pool. The ceilings of the suites are 17th-century and one suite uses the staircase of a Moorish Tower. The suites range in size from 29 sq metres to more than 162 sq metres and many enjoy magnificent sunrises and sunsets with unique views of the old quarter of Lisbon. All provide the perfect level of understated luxury decorated with silks and each suite is named after a Portuguese writer, artist, philosopher, traveller, inventor or ecologist.

    Palacio Belmonte is one of Christian Louboutin's favourite luxury hotels in the world. This Chic Retreat is one of Lisbon's best-kept boutique hotel secrets surrounded by medieval streets located on the edge of the Castelo São Jorge district. Palacio Belmonte is an historic and wonderfully luxurious boutique hotel that was built on both Roman and Moorish fortifications. With 11 stunning suites and a beautiful black slate swimming pool, Palacio Belmonte was named one of the "coolest 21 hotels in the world" by Condé Nast Traveler. Guests have been known to arrive and depart without having left this magical place.

    This small luxury hotel is the oldest building of its kind in the city, the residence of the Earls of Belmonte for over 500 years. Antiques and oil paintings from the 15th to 18th century blend together with African and Japanese artefacts, amidst ultra-modern sculptures and contemporary furniture which reflect the taste and vision of the Palacio's owners. Palacio Belmonte lies at the top of one of Lisbon's seven hills, tucked inside the ramparts of the Castelo de São Jorge, behind plum-red portals in a narrow cobbled passage. After an extensive renovatio,n the result is a peaceful, authentic & luxurious hotel with terraces of stunning views, sitting rooms, libraries and an organic garden. While receiving the highest level of service, guests will be emersed in the Palacio's philosophy of well being, exclusivity, simplicity, natural comfort & intimacy.


    "One of the most beautiful suites in the world" (Condé Nast Traveller), your attention will be caught by stunning views, tiled rooms, frescos, fabulous terraces, libraries, a black marble infinity pool and the organic Mediterranean garden that overlooks the city and the Tagus river. The Palacio provides a secluded base from which to explore the city of Lisbon, its architecture and its vibrant cultural life.
