Expert Review

Solar do Castelo is one of the hotels operated by the family-run Heritage group, which operates a small chain of charming hotels in old houses and small homes around Lisbon. Solar is located in an historic 18th-century mansion within the walls of São Jorge Castle. The inn retains several original medieval features, like the cistern and a plaque that reads “1765,” as well as a lovely courtyard and garden. The 14 rooms are at once modern and old-fashioned, with cozy furnishings and contemporary amenities like Molton Brown products and free wireless internet access (available throughout the property).

“Avoid refueling your rental car at gas stations too close the airport. You'll find better gas prices a few exits away and still be able to return the car with a full tank.”
