Bairro Alto Hotel
Located between the shopping of Chiado and the nightlife and eateries of Bairro Alto, the Bairro Alto Hotel is housed in an ocher, 19th-century baroque building that overlooks the Luis de Camoes square.

The Flores restaurant serves Portuguese cuisine, while Cafe-Bar BA, with its geometric stained glass windows, has live music and light fare. The BA Terrace has views of Rio Tejo and the old Lisbon rooftops.
