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. Well kept and maintained for an older building in this landmark type area... More

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. Service was immaculate from the moment we arrived to the... More

Wow. Having frequented the Tripadvisor website and read many reviews that helped me steer our vacation decisions in the past, I very rarely (if ever) post about a place. The Bairro Alto Hotel is an exception. This was an exceptional experience, every step of the way. First of all... Lisbon is a fantastic destination. Very beautiful in every way a... More

This is a wonderful hotel, with a location that cannot be beat. You are literally a 10-15 minute walk from basically anywhere you would want to go, and the Bairro Alto is a gorgeous, immaculate and classy place to stay. Rooms are spacious with great amenities and the staff was warm, helpful and completely attentive -- they really seem to... More

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! So many hills, tiny one way streets, traffic, etc. We do not recommend driving! Luckily there is a parking garage right by the hotel, or the hotel will park your car for... More

We decided to spend a couple of nights in Lisbon before going on to Cascais. This was a present from my daughter who was traveling with me. This hotel had a great reputation and it did not disappoint, from the moment we arrived to the time we left, everyone was so helpful. The room was on the side street and... More

This is a very nice hotel in a good location. Our room was a good size, but not large and certainly not small with a nice bathroom. It was quiet although we faced the street. The staff was helpful and the breakfast excellent. The roof top bar is recommended in almost every review for its view and indeed is busy,... More

This is a good hotel primarily for its very good location at the intersection of the barrio alto and chiado areas and its panoramic rooftop bar. But I don't believe it is a five star hotel...more like 4 stars. It is getting a little dated and could use some freshening up I think. We were there five nights and were... More
