Casa Balthazar was a wonderful guesthouse for our stay in Lisbon. The breakfast was outstanding and the people in the office were extremely helpful with suggestions for activities and reservations. Casa Balthazar is in walking distance of most of the areas that we wanted to visit. We would definitely choose to stay at Casa Balthazar again, highly recommended.

Wow - what an amazing oasis in the heart of Lisbon! After spending some time in Madrid and Seville we were so happy to arrive at this idyllic and peaceful hotel. Our taxi driver from the airport had a bit of trouble finding the street and ended up dropping us off at the top so we had to walk down...

My husband and I just had a wonderful stay in Casa Balthazar. In the heart of the city, close to (almost) everything, incredible view, amazing breakfast. Don't look for anything else; the price worse it!!

The service and room were divine. We checked in and were glad that we got a room with a view. The breakfast was served in our room and it was perfect. The bed was comfortable and the room had plenty of space.

We had the best stay at Casa Balthazar. It is right in the heart of the historic downtown Lisbon and you can walk everywhere. When we arrived, you didn't even know it was a hotel as it's in the middle of a street with homes, restaurants, etc ... a hidden gem! The receptionist made all of our reservations for dinner...

Casa Balthazar is a luxuriously appointed hotel in the midst of a beautiful city. It is a rambling old white washed house surrounding a cute courtyard and swimming pool. The staff were exceptionally welcoming, and the antique room was very spacious, stylish and very comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful (may be too much!) and served in the room every day....

With a great location a short walk from the Rossio station Casa Balthazar is a good choice for exploring Lisbon. The reception and service staff are both friendly and very helpful. The building has many nice historical and decorating touches but the room we had seemed tired particularly the bathroom which needed up dating particularly when you consider the price.

If you are looking for personalised service and something friednly and relaxed this is perfect. Hidden behind a door in a street not far from cafes and restaurants, this hotel is a gem. We stayed in a suite, tucked away at the top of the building (lots of stairs), which was comfortable and spacious. The service was exceptional (with the...

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighbourhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
