Hotel Overview

Sense of place

This contemporary and luxurious hotel is set in a regal 18th-century building, and the sleek and modern decor contrasts with its traditional exterior. Occupying a central downtown position, its ideal location makes Bairro Alto Hotel a good base for exploring Lisbon.

Rooms at Bairro Alto Hotel

The rooms and suites combine a classic, historic style with a modern, contemporary feel. They all look out over Lisbon, with attractive city and waterfront vistas, and the bright blue and red interiors match the vibrant city, and enhance the sharp, modern furnishings, with touches such as plush king-sized beds, Ralph Lauren wallpaper, stylish photography and antique clawfoot tubs in the bathrooms for a relaxing soak.

The spacious suites offer even more space and luxury, alongside premium views over the River Tagus and Lisbon's historic sights. Opt for a Signature Suite on the top floor for the very best views.

Food & drink

The Bairro Alto Hotel Restaurant, or BAHR, is headed up by award-winning chef Nuno Mendes, and continues the contemporary theme of the hotel, reflecting the modern environment in the creative food. The innovative menu aims to create exceptional Portuguese cuisine - and it certainly doesn't disappoint - tuck into delicious Portuguese specialities including steak and ceviche, as well as irresistible desserts.

The restaurant opens up onto a stunning rooftop terrace, where you can enjoy your meal while watching over Lisbon’s skyline and the Tagus River - these are some of the best hotel views anywhere. This is the place to be at sunset while sipping a cocktail or two, and for enjoying breakfast in the morning sun.

In the evening, enjoy drinks and music in the bar. This local hotspot has nightly live music from hip DJs as well as both Portuguese and international bands, so you can chill out to the sounds of jazz or Blues.


A wellness and fitness centre can be found on the top floor - not just a state-of-the-art gym, complete with personal trainers and yoga sessions, it also has a sauna, a sensory shower and soothing treatments including facials and massages, where you can unwind after a busy day discovering the city.
