As you would expect of a major capital city, Lisbon has its fair share of five-star hotels to choose from. One of the most popular and established is the Bairro Alto hotel, located high above the city at the point where the Bairro Alto meets the sophisticated Chiado district.
The Bairro Alto Hotel offers some of the most exciting views of Lisbon from its entertaining terrace, and is also an evening entertainment destination in its own right for the Café-Bar BA.
Popular with locals and visitors alike, the Café-Bar BA has its own separate entrance on Alecrim Street and is a cosmopolitan and lively destination for eating, drinking and dancing to a wide variety of musical genres.
The Bairro Alto Hotel has won boundless awards from the hotel and travel industry including, but not limited to, Europe’s best small hotel at the International Hotel Awards 2012, Portugal’s best small hotel at the same event, Portugal’s leading boutique hotel at the World Travel Awards 2012 and a number of further awards from industry experts such as Conde Nast.
The hotel consists of 51 rooms of various sizes and styles, plus four suites. Views are out over the Praca Luis de Camoes, the Bairro Alto, the Rua das Flores, or Rua do Alecrim. Guests can expect to find a high quality of décor and comfort in keeping with the Bairro Alto Hotel’s five-star classification.
Additional facilities for guests include valet parking, 24-hour room service and concierge, laundry and dry cleaning service, a delicious pillow menu, a la carte massage and body treatment service, reading and TV room, fitness centre, business centre open 24 hours, in-hotel boutique, babysitting service and three dining and drinking locations.
In addition to the Café-Bar BA, the Flores do Bairro Restaurant is a popular dining location. The atmosphere is cosy and welcoming yet the food elegant and sophisticated. For some of the best views in Lisbon, Portugal and indeed the world, head to the top-floor Terrace BA.
This has been voted the fourth best hotel terrace view in the world, and it is easy to see why as you watch the sun set behind the bridge over the glistening waters of the river Tagus.
