About Bairro Alto Hotel
Located in the heart of the upcoming Bairro Alto area, in the center of Lisbon’s Shopping and Theatre District, with its eyes set on Luís de Camões Square and close to the São Carlos National Theatre, the luxurious and cosmopolitan Bairro Alto Hotel is implanted into the former Grand Hotel de l’Europe, where many renowned European artists stayed during the 19th and 20th centuries.
In 2001, almost 20 years after its closure, the successful restoration project was initiated with the aim of repositioning the Hotel into the international panorama in accordance with the quality and prestige commanded by its rich history.
The building underwent an intense and brilliant architectural intervention in order to maintain its attractive aesthetic heritage. The interior design materials with French, English and Italian inspiration were used with refinement, comfort and exquisite design and harmoniously blended into the atmosphere of Lisbon and its history.
The design of the 55 Rooms and Suites has a contemporary approach of classic Portuguese style with the latest hi-tech features (wi-fi Internet access, in-room LCD–DVD). In the cozy and sophisticated Rooms and Suites, as in all the hotel spaces, contemporary touches were combined with details from the thirties to the fifties. The wood floors, the walnut furniture, the woolen rugs and the varied linen and silk fabrics are all of special note and perfectly accompanied by frescoes on the walls.
Among the facilities of the Hotel, a street-access Restaurant with Esplanade, trendy Bar, mezzanine Lounge, private Boardroom, Fitness Center with Massage and a Panoramic Terrace overlooking the Tagus River for special events. Underground car park, plus tram 28 and metro facing the Hotel door.
When in Lisbon visit the Sé (Cathedral), and take in a view of the city and the Tagus River from the Santa Luzia Belvedere. Climb up to the Castelo de São Jorge (St. George's Castle). Take a taxi or bus to Belém to see the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos (Jerónimos Monastery) and the Torre de Belém (Belém Tower). While in Belém, explore one of the major sights of Lisbon, the Museu Nacional dos Coches (National Coach Museum).
