About Olissippo Lapa Palace
This lavish 109-room hotel overlooks the Tagus River in a quiet residential-embassy district, 10 minutes from downtown. The luxuriously restored 1870 mansion offers ornate salons and a refined Mediterranean restaurant. The original palace contains 21 rooms decorated in styles ranging from neoclassical to art deco, with Portuguese-made furnishings, fabrics and porcelain, and most feature balconies. We recommend requesting a garden room if available. Giving the property a distinct sense of history, mirrors and furniture recovered from the original palace fill the Royal Suite on the fifth floor. A modern tiered wing fronts lovely grounds with an outdoor heated pool and a seasonal tented café serving light lunch fare. Other amenities include a health club-spa that also provides an indoor pool and gym, plus a Turkish bath is available as well.
