Hi, what’s the best way to get from the airport to the hotel, Uber or a private transfer? And how much does it cost?
Hello from sunny Lisbon!
The Solar Do Castelo is located at the top of Alfama old district, in the castle village, inside the outer wall of S. Jorge Castle (the cradle of Lisbon), where traffic is restricted to residents.
Some larger taxis/ubers don’t feel comfortable driving inside this small area where streets are very narrow.
For your convenience we can arrange a transfer from the airport to our door. We also have a golf cart that can pick you up at the castle gate.
Please contact us for more details.
Warm regards :)
We did the transport organized by the hotel. It was a very friendly man with great driving skills. Which you need to get up there!
We also used the arranged transportation and we were very glad we did. I don't think just anyone could get up that narrow road.
Hi, we booked a airport transfer through the hotel , we just emailed them and they arranged someone to pick us up from airport. It was great as some taxis won’t take you up the very narrow streets to the top, and it is quite steep and cobblestoned I think it was 50 dollars well worth. Enjoy the hotel they are lovely and it is a beautiful spot.
We took Uber from another hotel we were staying at and found the rate to be less expensive then our taxi rides. Because the streets near Solar Do Castelo are very narrow, the Uber driver let us off several blocks away and called the hotel for us, where the hotel staff picked us up in a golf cart and took us the rest of the way. The hotel keeps the golf cart at the ready for this purpose. I wouldn't recommend having a car in that area.
When we stayed at Soar do Castelo we used neither Uber nor a private transfer. Whatever you do, use a small car with a driver super familiar with the tiny, narrow streets to take you right to the hotel entrance. Otherwise you will be dropped several blocks short and have to pull your roller luggage up steep, cobblestone walks and stairs.
We took a taxi from the train station so I cannot answer your question. I suggest contacting the hotel directly. They are very helpful.
A private transfer from the airport or the hotel was included in our package. After arriving at the castle gate one of the hotel staff was already waiting for us with their golf cart to take us to the front door of the hotel (most taxis will not come up all the way as the alley is too narrow). The transfer was a beautiful airconditioned mercedes. It was so comfortable and seamless that we decided to have the hotel arrange for the same servic back to the airport. Highly recommend and the staff is just the best!
We took a taxi after landing from NY on a morning flight and it was quite simple. The taxi went straight to the door and was 15 to 20 euros max— about 20 minutes. The hotel had given us a map to share with the driver but it was not needed. Good to have just in case. A wonderful hotel, btw.
Not sure but what's is very very important is to get directions from hotel and ensure that cab drops you literally at door. Some drivers seem to get lost and dump you anywhere pretending that they are. Lose to it when they are not
We arrived at midnight so organised private transfer
