With a hillside location overlooking Lisbon, the gleaming, five-star Dom Pedro Palace boasts unparalleled 360-degree views over Lisbon’s bustling streets – toward the Tejo river, São Jorge Castle and the shimmering sea beyond. Set in the Amoreiras neighborhood, it offers proximity to one of the biggest local shopping centers. And in its time, it’s attracted an illustrious roll call of past guests: Presidents Clinton and Putin, and now, you.
In true Dom Pedro style, relaxation is the name of the game at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning property, which has a full-service spa on hand to rejuvenate and prepare you for a day of exploring the city. As the sun sets, satisfy your post-sightseeing and -shopping appetites, with Italian and Portuguese fare at the hotel, or asksomeone on the friendly team to book you a table at a personally recommended restaurant, just like the presidents would do.
Spacious Tower Double rooms are located between the 15th and 19th floors, so expect fabulous views of the city and beyond.
On the ground floor, Il Gattopardo restaurant is elegant and refined, with an outdoor terrace for warmer days. Sicilian chef Michel Bono offers all that is best in beautifully prepared and presented Italian cuisine. You can also enjoy tasty Portuguese bites at the Bistrot Le Cafe.
The SPA Aquae is impressively well-equipped for a city hotel. There’s an indoor chromotherapy pool, as well as a sauna, Turkish bath, Jacuzzi and fitness center, plus massage and treatment rooms.
The Dom Pedro Palace is right opposite the Amoreiras shopping center, which, with 250 shops (including many well-known brands), cinemas and restaurants, is regarded as the best in the city. Even better, it’s open until 11pm. If this isn’t enough, El Corte Ingles shopping center is nearby. The famed Marques de Pombal Square is also close, as is Avenida da Liberdade, with its upscale boutiques.
How to Get There
This is an exceptional hotel with some character. The lobby is spacious with lots of comfy chairs and tables to sit and wait for your group or to just watch the comings and goings of the guests. The bar area is a great place to sit, relax, and enjoy a glass of wine or a beer. We had the turkey club sandwich 2 evenings, plated with French fries, and more than enough to share. Our dinner one evening was the most delious cod au gratin which was served pipping hot in a caaserole dish, creamy, tasty, just perfect. Yes it would have been easy to go to the food court across the street but after a long flight and touring, but what a better way to sit and enjoy the ambience of the hotel. Our room was spacious and decorated attractively. The bathroom was spacious. Our group had a hot/cold welcome reception with all of that food being of qualtiy. Our group had a separate dining area with a huge selection of hot and cold items, fresh fruits, crusty rolls, cheeses, and the famous Portugal tarts. The hotel offered a lot of value for the price paid.
The rooms were massive and beautifully presented, I loved the fact that they offered a universal power adapter and if you needed you could take it with you for a small fee (we had lost our aus—>Europe one earlier in the trip and had been looking everywhere for a new one). It’s a bit out of the way in Lisbon, but it is beside a massive shopping centre and a couple of restaurants
I have stayed here many times. The good rooms are very good. The ambience is classy but not snobbish. Staff extremely helpful and obliging. Food in the Italian restaurant not bad at all. My only reservations are (i) it is a bit of a walk to "central" Lisbon for normal tourists, especially with children, and so i advise always taking a taxi (about 6 euros); and (ii) the "spa" is a little bit on the gloomy side and needs updating, particularly the lighting. But the heated swimming pool is good. I was there the other day and the saunas (both dry and wet) were not working properly. Pity.
