The Hotel Palácio Estoril is one of Europe¬ís great hotels which has been enchanting successive generations of guests from the four corners of the globe since 1930. Its long existence is intertwined with the history of Europe and the world and with changing attitudes. Now, in the 21st century, the Palácio is still grand but at the same time is a completely renovated, up-to-date hotel with modern facilities that manages to be welcoming and cosy despite its grandeur.

The hotel was the international Allied spy HQ during World War II. It was here that Ian Fleming witnessed a card game between enemy agents, which was the inspiration for the plot of his first novel Casino Royale.
The Hotel Palácio was James Bond’s hotel in the 1969 film On Her Majesty's Secret Service. You can find the hotel in the centre of Estoril, next to the Casino gardens. The exterior still looks exactly like it did when EON filmed there. The entrance of the hotel is easily recognizable. 007 parked his car here, only to discover Tracy’s Ford found its way to Estoril’s famous hotel, too.

The interior of the hotel has changed a bit since, although the marble corridors and floors still breathe the same majestic atmosphere. All the rooms offer the same view of the pool as 007’s suite did.
