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.

We splurged on this 5 star hotel and Lisbon to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary, and I'm so glad we did. It's in a great location in lovely neighborhood in Lisbon. Close to everything.

My wife and I stayed here in late June on the front leg of our 10th anniversary trip based on the recommendation of a Portuguese friend, and we couldn't have been happier. We splurged on one of the four suites and it ended up being nicer then the pictures online, so upgrade if you can. Everything about this place is... More

This quaint hotel has the best location anyone could ask for. It is within walking distance of a million small shops and store chains, eateries, bars and so many things to do all within 15 minutes walk of the hotel. Very nice and spacious rooms and bathrooms.

The Bairro Alto is an excellent boutique-sized hotel in Lisbon that I would highly recommend and to which I would look forward to returning for a second visit. For me, the highlights were the extremely friendly, professional but also low-key/casual staff and the rooftop patio bar, which overlooks the water and is an amazing, low key place for late-afternoon drinks...

I stayed here with my partner in 2012 for a short 4 day break. We had what we thought was a small suite which turned out to be a wonderful 4 room suite with bedroom, lounge, changing room and bathroom. It was perfect, stylish and everything was fresh and new.

Background: We only stayed in this hotel for one night. We drove from Porto (less than 3 hours) and quickly found that driving in Lisboa is not fun!
