“Great B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We stayed here in July. As mentioned in previous reviews, it's hard to find. Despite having the instructions from the website printed and giving them to the taxi driver, he still didn't seem to know where it was. Eventually got there - taxis in Lisbon are cheap. We were greeted by Magda who showed us our rooms and then sat us down to explain what we should do and see in Lisbon. We followed up on a lot of her recommendations.

We had two rooms which were individually decorated. Both rooms were a good size and very clean. The breakfast was adequate. We were usually down for breakfast towards the end of the sitting and found that we had to ask for plates or bowls and sometimes for food too as there wasn't much left some morning. Cakes were good.

Location wise, it's ok. Be aware that its at the bottom of quite a step hill. We found that we generally walked around the corner and got a tram up the hill. It was entertaining trying to buy the tram tickets from the shop around the corner because we spoke no Portuguese and they spoke no English.

Just returned from a lovely trip to Spain and Portugal. In Lisbon we stayed at Casa do Bairro for 5 nights and it became our home almost overnight! From the first meeting with Juao, Magda and Hugo to our last goodbye (when Magda lugged my heavy suitcase single handedly up the stairs), I I can only say good things about this gem of a B&B. We were initially booked into the Alfama room at the top of the stairs but after a casual conversation with Hugo about whether all the rooms had the same rate, he instantly called up his reservations and switched us to a roomier suite (203) with views of the sea (at the same rate we booked at). The perfect daily breakfast with homemade treats and the espresso on hand made it feel just like home. We would highly recommend Casa do Bairro to anyone looking for a good base in Lisbon to explore, eat and shop. (The only warning would be that you should be relatively mobile as it is at the base of a steep cobbled stone street that may prove difficult for some). Oh yes... and let me not forget the delicious meal by Zulmira at their other property Mount Belvedere down the road. It was the perfect introduction to fine Portugese cooking and a range of amazing wines. Thank you Magda, Joao and Hugo once again.. we will be back!!!

Room Tip: The rooms at the top are more private though the stairs with luggage take some maneuvering.

Our room was spacious and furnished to a very high standard. The bathroom was exquisite. The breakfast was satisfactory. This B&B was terribly difficult to find as the address is a a small lane which doesn't seem to be on street maps or the GPS. Even taxi drivers seem to be unable to find it. The directions should incorporate the relevant house number and street name of the nearest residence in the neighbouring street. It was a shame that this B&B had no one in attendance on the premises for the afternoon and evening during our stay. When there the young man was helpful.

Room Tip: Ring before arriving to clarify the exact location

...from the rooms (which are beautifully decorated), to the location (within walking distance to everything you want to see in Lisbon), to the breakfast (a wonderful variety of delicious homemade baked sweets and savories) and most importantly your host, Magna. For us, she truly made the trip special! She was a wealth of information and always greeted us with a smile. We left knowing that we had made a new friend. Being Bed & Breakfast owners ourselves, we highly recommend staying at Casa do Bairro!

Have just spent the last 4 days, 5 nights at Casa do Bairro in Lisbon. The team who look after you at this B&B are quite something. Without exception, they are all charming, polite, unbelievably helpful and friendly. We just returned to our room after having dinner on our last night here at their nearby property Belvedere ( a 5 minute stroll from Casa do Bairro) where Zulmira cooked us the most delicious 4 course meal and Daniel served the food and accompanying wines ( green, white, red and Port to finish.) We have eaten in several places in Lisbon in the days we have been here, but nothing could beat this wonderful, warm experience. Our stay in Lisbon has been made all the better by the team at this great B&B and we would like to thank them all. You must stay here and you MUST have dinner cooked by Zulmira on one of your evenings in Lisbon. One of life's lovely experiences!

Room Tip: We did originally have the room at the top of the property but the sloping ceilings were an issue fo...

Beautiful spot right next to Bairro Alto. Rooms are clean, modern, quiet, warm, and very comfortable. Our room had a beautiful view out to the water as well. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Can't recommend it enough.
