Built in 1870 as a private residence, this hotel has ornate decor "befitting a true palace," with finely detailed woodwork in public spaces and guest rooms and crystal chandeliers. The hilltop location in the embassy district places it a five-minute walk from the dock; Lapa Restaurant has live guitar music to accompany the Tagus River views and Mediterranean fare such as pork confit with lobster.
