    I stayed one night at the hotel. The hotel itself is very beautiful, the top floor terrace overlooking the river is also beautiful but it is small and gets crowded at times. Also, my room was exactly facing a service door. After 6 am I could not sleep because the door made so much noise closing ( it is a thick fire door).
    The real problem with the hotel is that it seems that in order to save money the space is divided with fake walls, the plywood kind. I found it very uncomfortable. You can knock at your room´s "wall" and you can hear and feel that the wall is hollow; gives you the feeling your are in a shack.
    I also noticed that the toilet walls were very thin and i remember leaning against the bathtub wall and it shaking like it was going to go down.
    To sum up: it is a shame the architect decided to use plywood instead of mortar and brick walls ( this alone is serious enough to take the hotel out of the 1st class range). The restaurant is excellent but its clientele has too many suits. I liked the bar on the ground floor, very good cocktails. Excellent service and very friendly police staff. Pretty too. I will go back, because it is so well located if your are into the Lisbon nightlife which I am, but I will see to it that I will not stay in the same room opposite the service door.

    Five stars are not enough to describe the beauty this hotel brings to your life for the time that you choose to spend there. Three nights of the beginning of our honeymoon were spent in Lisbon and the splendid Bairro Alto Hotel. We couldnt have chosen a better place to stay at. Everything was absolutely PERFECT. Room, Service, Location, Food, EVERYTHING!!! You will not be dissapointed! Now I know why it was ranked to be 9th best hotel in south Europe and 31st best hotel in the World. If you want a REAL FIVE STAR HOTEL in Lisbon, then Bairro Alto is the ONLY NAME you have to remember.

    Located in the most exciting part of Lisboa, the Bairro Alto Hotel is a perfect place to stay. The mélange of luxury and upfront kindness is amazing - and the terasse on the roof is the cherry on the cake. I can highly recommend this hotel - but don't book the 'standard' class rooms on 5th floor because they have extremely small windows! And w-lan internet is too expensive (€ 20 a day!!).

    Do not expect a the luxury of a five star hotel. Rooms are comfortable, but not superb. The hotel is part of the Small Leading Hotels of the World chain.
    Do expect great service and a personal attention. The hotel does not have many facilities. It has a cozy (very small, always full) bar at the last floor's terrace, with a good view.
    The hotel's restaurant is very good. I would certainly place it among the best of Lisbon.
    The Location of the hotel is great, specially for those who like the atmosphere of an old and vibrant neighborhood. Bairro Alto is the Lisbon equivalent to the Paris "Rive Gauche" or the Roma "Trastevere".
    Bairro Alto Hotel is definitely my choice in Lisbon.
