Fun on your doorstep

In 2005, the 18th century Hotel d’Europe was transformed into the Hotel do Bairro Alto. The result is a unique combination of aristocratic charm, modern comfort and superb location.

After checking in, you can relax on the top floor terrace and enjoy the fantastic view of the Tagus river. Once you walk out, ready to explore the city, you’re seconds away from Lisbon’s most famous café, A Brasileira, and two minutes from Santini‘s fabulous artisan gelato. You can shop for porcelain to your heart’s content at Vista Alegre or choose beautiful cutlery at Cutipol. You can walk to Bairro Alto, enjoy the view of St. Jorge’s castle, stop for a drink at the port-wine institute, listen to some fado, and check out the avant-garde scene at Galeria Zé dos Bois. Or you can go downtown to stroll on Rossio and Terreiro do Paço. Where else in the world, dear reader, can you find so much fun on your doorstep?

  1. We just got back from Lisbon. We rented a flat across the Praca from Hotel Barrio Alto. Great neighborhood.

    But the Vista Alegre store is being renovated and is not currently open. We did go to Cutipol on Rua Alecrim which is a great store with lots of beautifully designed pieces (not just cutlery, but glassware, serving pieces, etc.). Next door is a high end shop selling beautiful silver pieces including some lovely jewelry.

    Lisbon is a wonderful city, filled with some of the most interesting “local” shops with unusual and well designed merchandise. As well as some of the best food and wine we’ve ever eaten (and that includes France, Italy, Spain, etc.)
