This sleek 55 room five-star boutique hotel sits in an enviable position where the trendy and fashionable Chiado, meets the artsy and bohemian Bairro Alto district. Fine dining, bohemian bars, art gallery designer shops, and historical landmarks are all within a short walk of this historic building.
Erected in the 18th century, the hotel can be found listed in travel guides of the time as the Hotel de L’Europe. It was a world-class hotel, hosting artists and intellects from all over the continent, including famous French actress Sarah Bernhardt. In 2001, the hotel was bought by its current owners and transformed into the ultra-chic Hotel Bairro Alto.
This new hotel for the 21st century has modern rooms with high-technology amenities. The design is influenced by Portuguese hues of yellow, ivory, blue and terra cotta red. The floors are finished in Brazilian wood. Check out the attic (Mansard) rooms with their own design characteristic.
If you don’t go out for dinner in the Chiado, the stylish Flores restaurant offers a fusion of Portuguese and Mediterranean cuisine by Chef Luis Rodrigues. Grab a cocktail in the Café Bar, split on three levels, each with its own theme and ambiance.
But whatever you do, do not miss the lounge on the sixth floor roof terrace. The view over the Tagus River and Lisbon skyline is considered one of the best in the city. In fact, it is so remarkable, the terrace at Bairro Alto has been named by Trivago.com as the fourth most spectacular rooftop hotel view in the world. Bring a book for afternoon tea, or stop by after work to savor a glass of wine while enjoying a perfect sunset.
A fitness center with gymnasium and massage room is also available to round out your Hotel Bairro Alto experience.
