4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

After staying three nights at Hotel Britannia, I wanted to move to a more central and lively part of Lisbon and was delighted to find Bairro Alto, which had been recommended to me by both a tour operation and restaurant owner in Lisbon earlier in the week. I couldn't have been more happy with their suggestion. From the moment I... More

Lovely hotel in a very good location for exploring Lisbon. Very helpful and pleasant staff, from house keeping to front desk. Comfortable rooms and beds. Only a couple of slightly negative points of view. Roof top bar is lovely but open to public so can be busy. Tables in restaurant are quite close together. I would not hesitate to stay... More

The Bairro Alto is a historic property. We stayed in what was possibly the best (or near best) room in the hotel: 406. It is a corner suite with a balcony--more for viewing than sitting. We had a great view of Luis de Camões square on the corner. Amazingly, despite being right on the square, it was perfectly quiet thanks... More

Although I did not stay in this charming boutique hotel; friends and I visited the rooftop terrace for brunch on our final day in Lisbon. The staff were most accommodating and looked after our luggage like we were residents of the hotel. The rooftop terrace is located on the sixth floor of the hotel and the view is beautifully breath... More

The hotel has a great location right in the heart of Bairro Alto. It faces a busy square and if your balcony overlooks this you really feel like you are right in the midst of the action. The general areas as well as the rooms are well appointed and have a luxurious feel. I was amazed at how well insulated... More

This is one of the best European hotels I have ever stayed at. The attention to detail, quality and location make it a great hotel. The rooms are very well decorated with thoughtful pieces, wonderful beds and separate washroom. Very spacious rooms! The hotel has a artsy feel mixing modern and old. The bar upstairs has a great terrace where... More

Do not read this with the wrong perception about Lisbon. Lisbon is well worth coming to. The city is beautiful, clean, secure and has a lot to offer for any type of traveller. The best of Lisbon is clearly the warmth and genuine hospitality of its people. But it is not at Bairro that you will find any of that.... More

This is the best rooftop bar I've ever been to. (In all honesty, I didn't stay at the hotel, but came specifically for the bar and view.) The view of the river and the city is incredible and the small setting and great service makes it a must see. I'll be back soon!

The location, the staff, decor, everything's utterly amazing! Sophisticated and supreme service but done so naturally that made me feel at home. The view at the bar terrace is overwhelming. Best hotel ever!
