Bairro Alto Hotel is a 5-star boutique hotel in central Lisbon. A member of Leading Hotels of the World, the property is in the city's historic downtown area, between the Bairro Alto and Chiado districts.

Bairro Alto Hotel is on Praça Luís de Camões, where you can explore Baroque churches and some of the city’s best after-dark dens. Many of the city's top attractions, including the São Carlos and São Luís theatres, the Chiado Museum, the MUDE Design and Fashion Museum, and the churches of Basília dos Martires and Igreja da Encarnação, are a short walk away. Tram 28 departs from outside the hotel if you want to explore further afield.

The hotel blends old and new, with the striking yellow exterior of this 18th-century mansion housing spacious, contemporary rooms. The main lobby and the bedrooms feature sculptures, photography and paintings by local artists.

The property has 55 rooms, including four suites. Rooms overlook the Bairro Alto, the quiet Rua das Flores or the sunny Rua do Alecrim, and all have double glazing to ensure a good night's sleep despite the lively location. Rooms feature hardwood floors, marble bathrooms, DVD players, Wi-Fi and a complimentary bottle of port.

The relaxed Flores do Bairro restaurant specialises in traditional Portuguese sharing dishes, while the Café-Bar BA offers snacks and an extensive drinks menu, plus DJs and live bands. You can also have a drink on the BA Terrace on the top floor, and look out on the Rio Tejo and the city's rooftops. The hotel also has a fitness centre, which is open from 6am-11pm daily.
