“Elegant Environment - Superb Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

Staying at Casa Balthazar with 11 friends to celebrate 20 years of friendship - best choice ever! The hotel is superstylish, all spacious (!) nine rooms have their own signature look. The location cannot be better - in the center of town, but no noise at night. But what is most memorable is the excellent service of the staff. Any request I had for our group, such as special welcome drinks and snacks, late breakfast, last minute changes in plans... Nothing was too much, and the staff was just so nice and helpful! Lastly, the courtyard with a small pool is great to chill out after a day of sightseeing, before going out.

Room Tip: There are a few rooms that have a private terrace, which have amazing views

In the middle of the crazy traffic and bustle of Lisbon, this property is a calm delightful place to recover after a busy day sightseeing. We had a Terrace Room looking across to the Castle, so you could have a 'Sundowner' before heading out for dinner with many great restaurants only a few minutes walk away.

The pool which is set in a small but pleasant garden, is great for cooling down.

The breakfasts are great, the amenities first class and the staff in particular Rita helpful and informative

Gaining paradise could be hard. To find it while driving could be hazardous, but the inner parking is waiting for you at the end of the trip.
A wonderful house in Chiadio: the former house of the founders of the most famous pastelleria in Lisbon.
A friendly welcome, wonderful large and well designed suite, charming breakfast, nice rate.
A wonderful peaceful place in the art of Chadio a walk away from everything
When you reach the place this is your house.

We stayed one week in this wonderful place, but by the end of our stay we wanted to move in permanently! It really is an oasis of calm in the middle of the city and is surrounded by good cafés and restaurants. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. It is the kind of place you always hope you will find but rarely do; we can't recommend it highly enough!

Casa Balthazar is an absolute gem. Situated right in the heart of Lisbon it provided us with an excellent base from which to explore the city and its many delights. Our room (Panoramic) had a stunning view across the city and seeing the illuminated castle from it every night was particularly special. Amidst the hubbub of a busy city, Case Balthazar is an oasis – wonderfully tranquil and very, very comfortable. The moment you enter, the noise of the city disappears. Our room was very spacious, clean and equipped with everything we needed. We certainly appreciated the mini-kitchen. Cast Balthazar’s staff are outstanding – helpful, well-informed and attentive – and the facilities and breakfasts exceeded our expectations. How can two people eat yogurt, fresh fruit, fresh orange juice, four rolls, cheese, ham, two pastel de nata and petit four? We couldn’t so packed up the remaining food and took it with us on our tours of the city. Having visited many cities across Europe and stayed in many different character hotels, we feel very lucky to have found Casa Balthazar. It is truly special and we will certainly return. We happily recommend it as a truly exceptional place to stay.

We stayed at Casa Balthazar end of march and had an amazing weekend. The view is superb and the owners are all really friendly. The room, Rossio Terrace, was amazing!
Thanks for making it a perfect birthday weekend.
