Feature

Two years ago, an 18th-century palace in the center of Lisbon closed for construction — the building is ready to re-open as a luxury boutique hotel.

In occupying the space of a former royal palace, Hotel Barrio Alto exudes elegance from the original elements that were preserved and restored, such as the 18th-century architecture.

Situated between two of Lisbon’s most invigorating neighborhoods — Barrio Alto and Chiado — the best of Lisbon is right outside the hotel doors. However, the interior of Hotel Barrio Alto is accommodating and enticing enough to make it hard to rationalize leaving.

Classic rooms, junior suites and suites feature Le Labo bathroom amenities, a welcome drink upon arrival, pillow menus and laptop safes.

The hotel will feature the first Lisbon eatery from Portuguese chef Nuno Mendes, which will serve unique takes on local dishes. Grab a seat at BAHR, the rooftop terrace that rises high above Luis de Cameos to offer views of the square, the Tagus River and beyond.
