“Breathtaking views from the historic area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

One must visit the BA, it takes one back in time! My third visit to Lisbon, and always want to return. If you love a sense of history, being in a well preserved historic area, this is the place for you.

“Busy back streets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Lots of bars and restaurants to visit, especially on a Saturday evening. Make sure you visit the Old Pharmacy Wine bar, their house red is delicious.

“Buzzing and crowded nightlife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Come to Bairro Alto during the weekdays it is a normal neighborhood with bars that have few visitors, come to Bairro Alto friday or saturday you can't even walk there, it will be completely packed and the ambience is great. Highly recommended for nightlife lovers.

“Stay here, great neighborhood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

I stayed here and loved it. There are hidden restaurants and bars on all the little streets and it has a great neighborhoody feel. Next time I'm back, I'll stay here again. I was lucky enough to have a 4th floor apartment with great views looking down on all the red rooftops. A bit of a workout, but it's worth it. It helps you take it slow and appreciate what's around you.

“Stay Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Great area to stay during your visit. Central and lots to see and do. This area is very "happening" with many options to eat and drink, not to mention great views of the rest of the city from the overlook.
