Arrived early and tired from a long flight. Was provided a room to shower and complimentary beverage. A charming well lit room with balcony and bathroom view across the Tagus river. The terrace bar on the top floor is a perfect place has a wonderful view and was a perfect spot for a drink at sunset and an often quiet retreat during the day ( although popular with locals in the evening). Delightful buffet breakfast in a charming restaurant space. A fine dining experience in the evening. I extended my stay and when the room I had been in was no longer available I was upgraded to a beautiful larger room. Personal greetings from all staff from front door to house keeping. I was charmed by the helpful personal service. The hotel is on the edge of the restaurant/ nightlife ditrict of Bairro Alto and the adjoining smart shopping precinct of Chiado. A minutes walk to fashionable Rua Garrett and Rua do Carmo. Less to the metro.
The bijoux opera hose is a short walk. The popular tram 28 passes the front door. I was sad to leave. Early morning flight and the restaurant provided a 4.45am breakfast!! I loved Lisbon and The Bairro Alto Hotel and will be back!More
