"Bairro Alto" is known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center. At night, this 17th century colorful district is transformed into the city's vibrant nightlife quarter. The main streets and narrow passageways are bustling with activity of dozens of excellent traditional restaurants, «fado singing houses», cafés, and a multitude of sleek clubs and bars that stay open until late. In recent years, «Bairro Alto» is also an alternative shopping destination, for those looking for trendy design shops, art galleries and bookshops.
Bairro Alto, one of the Lisbon hippest and coolest place.
There are several buses and trams, and subway, 5 minutes away, although one can easily walk to the main points of the city.Two minutes walking is the heart of the glamorous and cosmopolitan city can still be felt in the Chiado, a place where the "new" and "old" live in harmony. Characterized by casual-chic atmosphere, with streets full of shops, fine restaurants, beautiful cobblestone, beautiful churches and timeless cafes, Chiado makes any visitor feel real Lisbon.
Chiado is where Lisbon's history and urbanity meet. This tourist area of the capital begins at the Brasileira café, on Rua Garrett. Opened in 1905. It´s one of Lisbon's postcards. On the side walk café you will find the different urban tribes and a statue of poet Fernando Pessoa, who offers his lap for tourist photos.
Next to it, two churches remind the vanished towers of Santa Catarina Gate. The Church of Loreto, built in 1528 by Italians living in Lisbon, was partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, but later rebuilt and one of the places to visit on Chiado. The Church of Encarnação, inaugurated in 1708, was also hit in 1755 and rebuilt later. But Chiado has more than just two churches to see.
Luís de Camões square, which any Lisboner will call Largo Camões, is not just a passing place. Sit on the steps of the poet's monument and enjoy the bustle that Chiado has.
But do not leave Chiado without inquiring about the theatres. São Luiz Municipal Theatre was one of Lisbon's first cinemas. Today it is a municipal theatre with a rich and varied programming. Also glimpse the Teatro Trindade and the S. Carlos Opera House.
This is one of the city´s best shopping areas. You will find international brand shops (Hermès and Hugo Boss, for example) and great Portuguese designers like José António Tenente (Tv. Carmo, 8) StoryTailors (Cç. Do Ferragial, 8) or Atelier Alves/Gonçalves (Tv. Guilherme Cossul, 16).
It is not difficult to come across public figures, mainly artists. There are several art schools in the area, like the Fine Arts Faculty. Even if you are not an expert, venture into the Chiado Museum - National Museum of Contemporary Art (Rua Serpa Pinto, 4) besides well-cared exhibitions, it has a pleasant patio to have lunch or simply sip a coffee. There is also a big offer for meals: Café Royale, New Wok and Kaffee Hause are excellent choices.

Very nice apartment and clean, in the central area of the Barrio Alto. The hostess was very friendly and helpful and the night there was not too much confusion as I would expect ... all right then, recommended!
Appartamento molto carino e pulito, in zona centralissima del Barrio Alto.
La padrona di casa è stata molto gentile e disponibile e la notte non c'era nemmeno troppa confusione come mi sarei aspettato...
tutto bene quindi, consigliato!
PROS: 1 We were greeted by a nice lady giving us a lot of information and useful addresses. 2 The apartment is located in the heart of Bairro Alto, the typical area due to the presence of numerous clubs and restaurants CONS: 1 Could not sleep until 3-4 in the morning, because of the nightlife and the lack of double glazing in the apartment. 2 bathroom odors emanating tremendous unbreathable making the interior of the apartment. All 3 days to return from home (not having used during that time the taps and shower) and the bottom of the sink and the shower was full of flies and vermicelli that came from the pipes.
PRO: 1 Ci ha accolto una signora gentilissima dandoci molte informazione ed indirizzi utili.
2 L'appartamento è situato nel cuore di bairro alto, zona tipica grazie alla presenza di numerosi locali e ristoranti
CONTRO: 1 Impossibile dormire fino alle 3-4 del mattino, a causa della movida notturna e della mancanza dei doppi vetri nell'appartamento.
2 il bagno emanava odori tremendi rendendo irrespirabile l'interno dell'appartamento.
3 Tutti giorni al rientro da casa ( non avendo utilizzato in quell'arco temporale i rubinetti e la doccia) il lavandino e il fondo della doccia erano pieni di moscerini e vermicelli che uscivano dalle tubature.
Lovely apartment in the middle of it all, you should be aware that the moment can be a little chilly here in the winter months. It is not very big but very well equipped for 4 adults.
Dejlig lejlighed midt i det hele, man skal dog være opmærksom på at den p.t. kan være lidt kølig her i den kolde tid.
Den er heller ikke særlig stor men dog ganske godt indrettet til 4 voksne personer.
Wir waren zu viert in der Wohnung. Perfekte Lage, etwas hellhörig, aber seinen Preis absolut wert. Einfache und perfekte Abwicklung mit dem Vermieter.
Todo salió bien. En el apartamento teníamos indicaciones de donde ir y como. Todo lo que le preguntamos al anfitrion nos contestaba rápido.
Super Lage, gut für zwei Paare, da zwei Schlafzimmer! Bäcker und kleiner Supermarkt fußläufig erreichbar, leider sehr hellhörig. Perfekt für junge Leute, die einen Städtetrip machen! Außerdem super unkompliziert mit An- und Abreise. Wir können es nur weiterempfehlen.
It was a very nice landlord and the accommodation was spacious and well respected judge.
I hope i see you soon.
We spent some days in the studio and really enjoyed the nice view of the kitchen-window. It is no worth cooking in the apartment as going out for lunch is really cheap and the kitchen is just equipped to prepare a quick sandwich or pasta, not a hole meal. Clean bathroom and rooms, only the bed is, in my opinion, very uncomfortable and not like written "getting out of the bed will be difficult" in a positive sense. Communication with the host was very easy, friendly and cooperative!!
For the last days we had to move to another apartment as they started with some demolition works next door. But this may occur at any place and WIMDU really did a good job to solve this problem. Thanks a lot for this!
