Bairro Alto Hotel

Boutique comfort in the heart of Lisbon
Bairro Alto Hotel is a privately owned boutique property set in one of Lisbon’s most fashionable and lively areas. It has a quirky charm that is effortlessly luxurious and welcoming because of its small scale and personalized service.

Set on a corner of Camões Square, and with Lisbon’s famous yellow trams passing right by the lobby door, the hotel is on the doorstep of the vibrant Bairro Alto area that gives it its name.

The building itself goes back to the 1600s. In the 19th century, it was made into L’Europe Hotel, and many original features have been preserved to help create the treasure before you today.

Pritzker-winning Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto Moura oversaw a 2018 restoration that added 32 rooms, a fresh restaurant concept, an events space and a fully equipped gym.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• The location of the Bairro Alto Hotel is perhaps its greatest asset. It rests right in the heart of the action of Lisbon’s trendiest city center neighborhood, close to a number of must-experience attractions (see: famed 28 Tram and the Brasileira Café) and excellent high-end shopping options, including Hermès.

• Because of its scale, service at Bairro Alto is truly personal. The hotel’s team of staff quickly gets to know you and everyone does their utmost to cater to any specific needs.

The Rooms
  • The boutique hotel has 87 rooms that are broken down into four different categories, ranging from classic units starting at 269 square feet up to river-facing Signature Suites that measure over 700 square feet and come with their own chambermaid and airport transfers.

  • Like every room, Junior Suites feature complimentary pay-per-view movies and Le Labo bathroom toiletries. These units also spoil overnight guests with heated floors, daily afternoon tea and gratis minibar snacks.

  • The corner Suites up the high-end stakes even more with in-room check-in, two flat-screen TVs and daily-refreshed flowers.
The Restaurants
  • BAHR serves fine Portuguese cuisine and pours creative cocktails in a sexy, modern space.
  • A mezzanine above the lobby is a relaxing area for early arrivals to sit while waiting for rooms to be serviced, or to kick back and read a magazine after a spot of sightseeing.
  • Pastelaria is a friendly spot for overnight guests and locals to grab a coffee or a homemade pastry.
