History and passion in a romantic hotel!
At the top of the popular Bairro de Alfama district in Lisbon, a number of traditional Portuguese houses can be found within the walls of São Jorge Castle. Among them is the Romantik Hotel Solar Do Castelo, which fascinates thanks to its medieval architecture. The small 18th-century palace rises where the old kitchens of the Alcáçovas Palace used to be. In a place of legends and the "souls of princes", the gates open to the noble courtyard where the magnificent blue of peacocks prevails. A tranquil refuge framed by tile work from the "Pombaline" period, typical of Lisbon.
Three Portuguese families joined forces to develop a new hotel brand that could promote national heritage among their visitors. They started with 3 old buildings in the centre of Lisbon and their restoration: As Janelas Verdes, Hotel Britania and Lisboa Plaza. Only a few years later they invested in 2 more projects: Solar do Castelo in 2001 and Heritage Avenida Liberdade in 2007.
