“The beautiful yellow ochre façade of the Bairro Alto Hotel stands on one of Lisbon’s most charming squares, named after a famous 16th-century poet. Inside, smallish rooms have whitewashed walls painted with frescoes of birds; floors are wooden, and beds supremely comfortable. Downstairs are a popular bar and a corner restaurant serving modern Portuguese fare. But best is the roof terrace with its unforgettable view over Lisbon and the Tagus river.”

“Capturing Lisbon's spirit of discovery the renovated Bairro Alto Hotel, dated 1845, is in the privileged location of Bairro Alto, which means literally 'Upper District'. This vibrantly chic and in-vogue district of Lisbon is traditionally the heart of intellectuals, artists and revolutionaries. It remains today the creative hub of Culture, Art, Fashion and Design.”
"On the fringes of the Bairro Alto neighbourhood, with its cobbled lanes and lively bars, this cool, stylish Lisbon hotel combines period and modern features and offers an excellent dining experience in its ground-floor Flores Restaurant."
