Reviewed 18 April 2013

It was our first time in Lisbon and you always worry about getting the hotel right so that you're in a good location etc. It is a very nice hotel, stylish and comfortable with great staff and superb location. The suites are wonderfully placed (ours on a corner) and very spacious but the standard rooms were slightly smaller than expected. They charge 15euros for wifi which I think is unreasonable for a hotel of this standard - but even more you have to log in every time you use it even if you have been off the wifi for a few minutes. They really need to sort this out!
But except for that - it was great - great rooms, maids, staff, roof top bar, gym, food and the boys in the bar make a wicked drink too.

Everything ,from the welcoming concierge to the informed reception staff,made this an anniversary weekend to remember.Bairro Alto is a bustling and noisy district but the hotel is an oasis of calm and efficiency.The room was beautifully thought out and minimally designed.....nothing left to chance.Great bathroom and secondary glazing that actually worked!The noise in the square never permeated into the room;the air conditioning was the quietest I have come across.The terrace bar has a great view to enjoy at the end of the day and the service was really charming(as it was in the dining room at the excellent breakfast.) For a hotel of this standard we were impressed by the reasonable prices and will definitely return!

A fine hotel with professional, courteous staff always ready to make a recommendation or provide assistance. As another reviewer stated, the interior is elegant without being over the top. The hotel's central location is a bit of a blessing and a curse. You are close to a lot of the sights and experiences Lisbon has to offer: Bairro Alto and Chido are right out the front door and getting around is eash given that a metro stop is right around the corner. The rooftop bar gives a great view of the water. My only criticism also concerns the location, however. Facing Praca Luis de Camoes puts you close to a vibrant nighlife but, for those rooms facing the Praca, it can get noisy until quite late in the morning.

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.

Room Tip: dont know what the standard rooms are like but the superior room on the 3rd floor was very spacious...

We had two memorable days in this top Hotel. The staff was excellent and always helpful and kind. The room was small but with lots of flair and the bed more than heavenly. You can walk to all major places and the area fills the cup of excellence. It you are to go to Lisbon it is hard to find a better place. Thanks Bairro Alto Hotel, we see us again!!

When in Lisbon, it really pays off to be centrally located. Bairro Alto Hotel's location simply beats all other competitors. Situated in Luis de Camoes Square, on the verge of the Bairro Alto bar and restaurant district, and walking distance from the main attractions.
To this you have to add true 5 star elegance and service, but none of the silly exuberance in other hotels. This is simple but rather effective luxury and charm.
Simply cannot recommend it more fervently. This is a stay you will remember.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the square are best.

The people who work here could not be nicer and more helpful. The hotel is newly done with a great breakfast and right in the middle of all the action. Rooms are not large but they are very comfortable.
