“A lovely boutique hotel”
My friend and I stayed for one night in a twin room and timings of our flights meant we had almost 2 full days in Lisbon. We arrived at the hotel around 9.30am after an early flight from London and were greeted very warmly, checked in and immediately shown to our room which was a bonus to be able to unpack before doing some sightseeing.
The staff are great. From the reception team, to the restaurant staff, downstairs barman and Angela and her colleagues in the top floor terrace bar we couldn't have been better looked after.
The hotel is in a perfect location, close to the metro but near the main centre for shops and restaurants, the river and the old town.
I would thoroughly recomend it.

“Dream Hotel In a Dream Location”
 I stayed at the Bairro Alto Hotel to celebrate my 30th birthday with a friend.
A local from Lisbon recommended this hotel to me and despite other great options, after hours of research I took his advice.
It was the best decision I've ever made. The location is absolutely perfect and cannot be beat by any other hotel in the city.
The hotel itself, the restaurant, the rooms were exquisite. The rooftop terrace bar can't be missed. The beds were so comfortable that making it downstairs before the end of breakfast at 11am was a struggle.
The value for our money was excellent, the experience itself was priceless.
The staff was the best I've ever encountered. Everyone in the hotel called me by name and walking in the door felt like I was returning home to a sea of friendly faces, all smiles all the time. They were available to answer my questions and concerns via email even before I booked a room and were easily able to accommodate requests that other hotel staff would have scoffed at without a second thought.

I've stayed in many wonderful hotels all over the world, but this was by far the best hotel experience of my life. Lisbon is one of the most magical places on earth, and the Bairro Alto Hotel was nothing short of magic.
Cannot wait to book my next trip!!

“Absolutely A1”
This hotel is a dream in every way. The rooms are incredible, with lots of unexpected goodies to behold. The staff are amazing, at every step. The service is incredibly willing - and the staff make that extra effort to make your stay enjoyable. The views from the terrace bar on level 6 are incredible - even if it's not so warm, go up and enjoy a cocktail with a view under a blanket. Make sure you eat in the restaurant too, the service and cuisine is incredible. If you're even considering a city break, one night or one of the best views of Lisbon - choose this gem in the heart of Lisbon life in Bairro Alto. Enjoy :)

“Excellent on every way,rooms food staff situation”
Spend one week at Bairro and enjoyed every day. The room was beautiful, not a single noise even being above the "praca". The staff discret and helpfull. The rooftop amasing. A 5 stars room service. Very pleased,will be back.

“A great stay”
We recently stayed at Hotel Bairro Alto for 4 nights and had a wonderful time.
The boutique hotel of 55 rooms was in a wonderful location and the service from every area of the hotel was outstanding.
Our superior room overlooked the square and was nicely appointed and extremely well sound proofed from the traffic and tram noise outside.
Very good breakfast, a gorgeous outlook from the rooftop terrace where we enjoyed tapas and wonderful suggestions for wines and again great service and atmosphere from the downstairs bar.
Excellent advice on how to get around Lisbon and suggestions for places to eat other than their own fine restaurant.
Would go back anytime.

“Perfection. Really.”
My husband and I spent one night here and couldn't have been happier. A small but extremely well-appointed room, excellent location, helpful and resourceful staff who were friendly and well-informed. They gave us advice about local restaurants, answered our questions about how to find interesting fado and helped us wth a little pick-pocking problem. The hotel breakfast was delicious, and the dining room peaceful. I hope we have reason to's perfect.

“Wonderful service!”
I don't typically comment on hotel experiences. This hotel is, as other travelers have mentioned, in a great location with very comfortable rooms. However, the distinguishing feature of this hotel is the excellent service they deliver at every step: Excellent reception, excellent and invisible housekeeping, wonderful breakfast, terrific restaurant for dinner and relaxing rooftop terrace, courtesy at every step. I cannot think of anything they could have delivered better. We felt welcomed and embraced. The service received here was exceptional.

“A most worthy hotel in a great city”
We looked forward to seeing Lisbon prior to our cruise on Seabourn. We chose The Barrio Alto and it turned out to be a secret that needs to be shared for its joy and most friendly people, shops, attractions and especially varied restaurant choices.
Our Bairro Hotel a was equally excellent experience and we had no prior knowledge about it. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Its location was in downtown Lisbon.
The upstairs outdoor patio was lovely for cocktails, lunch etc.

“Great location, even better service”
My husband and I stayed at the Barrio Alto for 3 nights in October. It's not a luxurious place by any means but the service of this place really impressed me. From check-in to check-out, the staff were attentive and helpful. We received a complimentary bottle of wine with a personalized note, everyone remembered our names, and the pillow library saved my husband. I'm not a huge fan of Portuguese food so their breakfast spread saved me. They will cook eggs to order in addition to a spread of your typical European buffet spread. The location is great, near the BA and Chiado districts. Don't miss the rooftop bar!

“Don't stay anywhere else in Lisbon!!!!”
I loved my 4 night stay at this wonderful hotel. The room was nice but what really stood out was the location and the outstanding service we received from the concierge desk ! Being a complete foodie I arrived with names of restaurants I wanted to eat at and every morning before heading out for the day I left the lovely gentlemen on the concierge desk my preferred restaurants so they could make reservations for us. They worked tirelessly to please us and left a lovely bottle of wine in the room for us to enjoy. The breakfast is also very good.

“Fantastic boutique hotel with 5 star service”
I wasn't expecting to be impressed but impressed I was with the Bairro Alto Hotel. Every member of the young staff were friendly and eager to please. They will remember where you went for dinner last night (Ramiro for the best seafood ever!) and walk you to the door to give you directions when you are on your way out. Hotel was centrally located with a great bar in the basement as well as on the rooftop. Our room was impeccably clean and very chic. The bathroom is just beautiful with a standing bathtub. Maria at front desk said to me when we were checking out and leaving for our next destination- call us anytime if you get lost or need help. It's funny how these small details stay with you and cause you to remember a particular property fondly. Management must be proud to have such a great team of staff running the hotel!

“Great Hotel in Best Location”
Stayed here for 5 nights on a Relax package with my best friend. Breakfast was included as were our transfers from the airport. We also had a free massage each (1 hour) which was wonderful. Also a free evening meal - everything was included - aperitif, 3 courses and all the wine you could drink. Food was very good.
The staff were wonderful - very attentive and very friendly - always joking.
The rooftop bar was a real bonus - fab views and the food is very good especially the salads for lunch. We were told it is the 4th best rooftop bar in the world for views.
We were upgraded to a better room and, yes, it can be a bit noisy in the evenings because the square is very popular as a meeting place. We didn't really mind as we were so central for all the things to see.
Breakfast is excellent and you can order eggs cooked any which way, although they don't tell you that!


“The perfect location for the perfect weekend”
Newly renovated boutique hotel ideally located for the Bairro nighlife, the Chiado shopping heaven and those wonderful trams that can take you to the Castle and Alfama district. Helpful and enthusiastic young staff who dont get this attentive by chance; there's a brilliant organisation behind the facade. Superb basement bar. Lively and distinctive. Outstanding top floor terrace bar with breathtaking views over the harbour & River Tagus. Breakfast on the ground floor is personal and high quality. The bedroom has all the modern features you need with superb triple glazzing so the noise of the city never enters. Next time back in Lisbon we wont waste time looking around for where to stay. Its the Bairro Hotel for sure


“Superb boutique hotel”
Lovely hotel, friendly and helpful staff, great location. We look forward to our return to Lisbon at which time we will certainly stay at the Bairro Alto Hotel.


“Perfect hotel”
Great location, lovely room, we had one of the lager rooms & staff fantastic. They were all very helpfull and willing to go that bit further to make our stay perfect. And believe me we are seasoned travellers and are not easy to impress. We will be back.


“Perfect Location, great service”
Small and very nice boutique hotel in the middle of the town, the location is just perfect. Very friendly staff, the service was very good, rooms a bit small but nicely decorated and clean. The only little setback was that WiFi was not working, however I would always go back to this hotel when in Lisbon.


Love this hotel! its very nice, located in the center, heart of lisbon. Love the restaurant! they serve very good food, their bar in the ground floor, and another bar in the roof deck, which is better a good view of the city. Everything is perfect. Except for the wifi. Its pricey. if you purchase an internet card, its good for only 1 computer. they should do something about that. But overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel. Awesome!


“Excellent Overall”
Fantastic location which really gives you a taste of Bairro Alto and Chiado. The staff was superb and attentive to every need. The rooms were nice, clean and roomy.
This would be my first choice in going back to Lisbon.
