The Bairro Alto Hotel was great; clean, fabulous location, and knowledgeable staff. They also had an excellent breakfast buffet! My husband and I had a standard room and my parents had a suite. I would encourage anyone staying here to get the suite, because the standard room only had one window no larger than a port hole, if that. Probably... More

This place has had some great PR - so much that it was on my hit list of places to go. In reality, this hotel has cleverly made use of a small space on the 6th floor and turned it into a roof terrace. It's nice, but nothing to write home about. Even on the blowy and chilly afternoon we... More

Really enjoyed a comfortable and luxurious four night stay at this lovely hotel. We chose this hotel for a city break in Lisbon and were very glad we did so. There is lot of choice in Lisbon - flamboyant, modern, high rise and so on. We wanted something smaller and not high rise, with character but not too overstated. The... More

Just back from a fabulous city break in Lisbon. One of my holiday highlights is hunting down good cocktail bars and this easily makes the list. Good views from the 6th floor. No need to be a resident, just take the lift to the 6th floor. Good choice of cocktails. If you don't see what you want, you might be... More

We arrived very late at night, due to flight delays, and our first impression of our superior room, overlooking the square, was that it was small and rather spartan. However, when we saw it in daylight, we realised that everything in it from furniture to soft furnishings and bathrooms fittings was very good quality. The bed was exceptionally comfortable with...

Firstly, I have to say, I have no complaints about the staff. They were all very polite & friendly & helpful. We didn't feel this was a 5 star hotel! We booked it through Leading Hotels of the World. Of which this doesn't make it. It's a nice hotel, but not up to the standard of 5 star hotels we... More

We enjoyed this superlative hotel in the heart of energetic, pulsating, elegant Lisbon. Situated in a beautiful square so atypical of most European squares, the literary history of the area seeps through the carnival like atmosphere that often permeates at night. Whether you want to enjoy a quiet drink on the square during the early afternoon, enjoy the all encompassing... More

We stayed for a 3 night tourist break and had booked they lowest category room, the Mansard roof rooms. Although a bit small and the windows very narrow we were very pleased with the room and found it nice, cozy and well decorated. The bed was nice and comfortable although we still find it strange that a 5-star hotel does... More
