In the heart of the artistic and bohemian district of the capital, the Bairro Alto (literally ‘upper quarter'), with its narrow and steep streets, is the ideal starting point for visiting the nearby Baroque churches.
Housed in an 18th-century building typical of the neighbourhood and recently restored, the hotel's 55 rooms overlook either the Tagus or the city. Each is attentively furnished with local furniture and objects in a refined decor. Even if you are not staying at the hotel, the terrace is worth a visit: it is one of the most romantic places in Lisbon and offers a breath-taking view.
If you want to close your day on an energetic note, head down to the BA Bar, where DJs and bands play to packed houses.
