5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2013

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.

Stayed at Bairro Alto Hotel for 6 days in February
Very pleasant experience!
Room (#311): large and totally equipped (including DVD player - DVD stock at front desk limited though to recent productions - would suggest getting older ones about Lisboa e.g. Wim Wenders' Lisbon Story (1994) among others...
Noise not really a factor - the adjacent square could be busy; close the bathroom door because window there not "soundproof" like the others in the room)
Restaurant in hotel (Flores) highly recommended; petit déjeuner served there
Very responsive staff all around: went as far as prepared petit déjeuner (cold variety) day of my departure at 4am!
Don't miss terrasse on 6th floor - great view on river!
Would have appreciated receiving English newspapers at room in the morning (did not ask however; have a selection at dining room

Room Tip: room 311 is a good choice - large and not quite on square; i imagine quieter...

I loved this hotel. It is certainly the BEST location in Lisbon...in the heart of Chiado and right off a popular square. The hotel is gorgeous, the rooms are luxurious, the rooftop has one of the BEST views of Lisbon and is a great place to have appetizers/drinks in the evening. We also LOVED the restaurant. Rates are not cheap, but breakfast is included in the rate, and its well worth it. This hotel is a bit on the pricey side, but you're guaranteed a wonderful experience. You might save a few dollars staying at another hotel, but if you stay at Bairro Alto, you're guaranteed no regrets. And the service is phenomenal - certainly some of the BEST service I've ever had in Europe. Well worth the extra money you might spend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking the square.

Near metro station and tramway 28, this hotel is a star in Lisboa. We were there only for three nights, it was heartbreaking to leave this beautiful place. Rooms very well equipped, hospitality, positivity and skills of the staff made a big difference. Flores restaurant offers a good concept of wining and dining, three bars offer a great range of drinks and cocktails. Roof terrace is a place to relax, drink and enjoy the panorama. Would certainly go back.

Just returned from a perfect city break in Lisbon. The hotel is refurbished and was recently reopened! You could tell that some improvements have been made. For example we discovered a beautiful vanity set in the bathroom which was very useful! The hotel was closed for two months but we haven't noticed any starting problems whatsoever. The staff was very helpful and were always willing to suggest some very tasty restaurants or walking routes. We suggest going to Alma restaurant, it was very nice and tasty (the best restaurant in Lisbon according to the staff) and we also informed that the chef used to be a chef at the hotel! Also we recommend drinking a mojito at the amazing roof top terrace of the hotel!! We had a great stay and we will definitely return.

I have stayed here twice in the past 2 yrs. If you love old buildings, style and architecture, you will love this place. The design is outstanding, classic and individual, rooms are spacious and the atmosphere is wonderful. I found the hotel quiet despite its location, the roof top bar is a great spot for drinks and to meet people. Despite many good hotels in Lisbon, probably my preferred choice.

We recently stayed at the Bairro Alto Hotel on a Leading Hotels of the World promotion. The staff made our three night stay great. They shared suggestions about siteseeing and restaurants. Our meal in the hotel dining room was one of the best we ate in Portugal. The hotel location worked well for Lisbon sightseeing. We had an upgraded room that gave us a view of the street and the river. Additionally we took a walking tour fo the neighborhood with a guide provided by the hotel which was one of the highlights of our Lisbon stay.

Room Tip: Our side facing view made it possible to see rooftops and the river.
