We won't stay anywhere else in Lisbon!
Posted Jul 31, 2016
In July, 2016, we spent our second stay at Hello Lisbon’s serviced apartments in Bairro Alto, which opened in late 2014. Again, we were absolutely pleased. We highly recommend Hello Lisbon to all visitors because of the locations of their hotels, the condo-style housing and the features of the units.
The Hello Lisbon chain has quickly expanded to 7 hotels in the city. Bairro Alto, one of the old quarters, may not be the location for you. It is a very sleepy residential neighborhood by day, but at night the ground floor shutters open up into restaurants and many, many bars. This is Lisbon’s party area, but the double-glazed/paned windows and electric blinds keep out much of the noise and summer’s early sunrise. Although this review is about the Bairro Alto property, all their properties have similar qualities, décor and fittings.
Next year, we may choose to stay in Hello Lisbon’s Cais do Sodré location. This area is basically at the bottom of Bairro Alto, along the Tagus riverfront and a is a quick and easy walk to the trains to the beaches. The Cais do Sodré neighborhood, once the “red light district during Portugal’s sailing days,” is now an up and coming neighborhood of its own.
Regardless of which property we choose next year, it will be a Hello Lisbon property!
