Bairro Alto: a Lisbon hotspot

20 May

The Bairro Alto is housed in an 18th-century edifice with an interior which “reveals nothing but 21st-century style” and has a sophisticated atmosphere which draws “the occasional star or jewel-bedecked tourist”. Public areas are said to be “calm and comforting” with a discreet style and facilities include a contemporary restaurant which offers “intimate seating and inventive cuisine” as well as a bar which is popular with the city’s most beautiful people. It is noted that in warmer months the sixth-floor terrace is opened and offers panoramic city vistas.

In keeping with its “reserved luxury” the hotel offers accommodations that are done in mellow color schemes, combining understated modernity with an array of electronic gadgetry, dark leather and fine fabrics. Although it has a “primarily business guest list”, the Bairro Alto is considered not to be just another design-hotel but rather one which tops the list of happening hot spots. [Review]
