We were in Europe for 3 weeks and stayed at multiple hotels. Our stay at Barrio Alto was our favorite and it was mainly because of the amazing customer service of two of the employees. I would specifically like to compliment Nuno Teixeira at the front desk and David. They both went above and beyond to make our stay memorable... More

Terrific contemporary, upscale property in the heart of the Chiado district in Lisbon -- lots going on nearby; bustling street life at night. In addition to the location, the staff and service were outstanding. Great rooftop bar....marred only by the gigantic construction crane operating right next door! The entire city seems to be under construcition at present. If you can... More

Despite being in the heart of all the action, the rooms (even on the first floor) are quiet and tranquil. Be sure to have a drink at the Terrace, the rooftop bar with sweeping views of the river. Heaven. There are a ton of excellent restaurants and wine shops nearby. The staff was friendly and welcoming, and the rooms were... More

I can be fussy when checking into a hotel but I have to say from the minute I walked into the Bairro Alto hotel I was impressed. The service that the staff give is second to none.

This was our second trip to Lisbon, and our second stay at the Bairro Alto Hotel. We booked unexpectedly, literally an hour before checking in, after realizing we would need to stay in the city an extra day to wait for our lost luggage to arrive from Frankfurt. And the Bairro Alto absolutely nailed it from the moment of arrival.... More

This is a perfect hotel for a visit to Lisbon. The staff is very friendly and welcoming (we were greated by 4 staff members with pastry and choice of a glass of champagne or port). Located a short walk to the river and the Rua do Ouro, yet located in a quiet area. Everything is in reach. The rooms were... More

We were only there for two days but very much enjoyed our stay. Excellent staff - very knowledgeable, professional and courteous. The hotel is located, not surprisingly in the Barrio Alto, which is very convenient to public transit, restaurants and places of interest. The hotel is a bit old but and is currently undergoing some work. Notwithstanding that, the rooms... More
