We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bairro Alto. The service was great and the rooms were very comfortable. The restaurant was a little on the small side but the view from the rooftop bar must be one of the best in Lisbon.

The hotel is centrally located, in the heart of the “what’s happening now” district with many small but excellent restaurants just a few minutes walk away. The staff is friendly, check in quick and efficient. My only gripe is that the rooms are really really dark. When I queried them about this they said it was necessary for “ambiance”, though... More

My husband and I had the privilege of staying at the Bairro Alto Hotel the night before we left on a cruise. It was a wonderful experience...the rooms are lovely, we enjoyed a delicious dinner and breakfast in their lobby restaurant, and the staff is topnotch. The hotel has a rooftop bar that is fun to sit and enjoy a... More

Bairro Alto was a great hotel - the roof top terrace bar, the hotel rooms, location and staff who were exceptional. They made the stay what it was. The hotel is near a metro station and looks out on a main thoroughfare, so it's so easy to get around and see the city. Views of Lisbon abound.

Bairro Alto has a great location in the centre of Lisbon - right next door to tram stops, restaurants, clubs and night life - everything you need really . . . . Efficient and super friendly staff - for example when we picked up hire car from the airport the day before we checked out they parked it in the... More

Our second time at Bairro Alto Hotel: we returned because we very much enjoyed our last stay five years ago, and I'm happy to report there has only been change for the better. We took a superior room which was large enough to absorb our luggage from a three-week holiday (although we do travel light). The room was dominated by... More

This is our second visit to this hotel. We stayed there last June when we visited and thought we would try a different hotel in Cascais. We were there less than 2 hours before we were on the phone with Barrio Alto trying to get a room. The hotel is centrally located and is walking distance to shopping and restaurants.... More

We took an agents recommendation to visit Bairro Alto and are thrilled that we did. The location is perfect for exploring most of what Lisbon has to offer - on foot! Important Note: Do not plan to wear heels, flip flops or leather soled shoes in Lisbon you MUST have sensible, comfortable walking shoes. Although gorgeous, the side walks are... More

This is a beautiful boutique-style hotel at the heart of the city with a very nice old charme. Great breakfast buffet. The hotel staff is young and dynamic and makes every effort to be of assistance. Very suitable accommodation for first time visitors to Lissabon.
