"Good for the young"
Friendly place. Good location but the shower in the bathroom has painted walls and lots of mildew. They no longer include breakfast. The room was clean and the sheets and towels were good quality but the mildew really got to me.

Wonderful place but the people walking by talking loudly all night made it impossible to sleep. Won't be going back.

"Hotel staff should test new keys"
The day of my arrival the hotel staff copied several keys, but did not test the ones they gave me. Since this is a small hotel, the hotel's staff is not 24 hours. All doors lock from the inside with a key. I was locked into the hotel so I could not join my friends for dinner and drinks. When I called the 24 hour number, the hotel staff refused to come in to let me out. They were completely unsympathetic the next day.

"Still a work in progress."
Was concerned about location, but after initial shock it worked for one night stay on weekend. Morning buffet included and met several airline attendants and crew who also stayed there, which was encouraging. Staff were friendly, but didn't speak good English. Only four rooms so don't expect much service. But the biggest problem was several small bed bugs we found in the morning. Bought it to the attention of the staff who appeared to be shocked and concerned. Would not stay there again based on this one main factor

"Very disappointed."
I have travelled to Lisbon often and have stayed in many different parts. The hotel name implies a central location, however, this is not the case. You are very high up and on the opposite side of town. I stayed in Room 1. This hotel is absolutely not 4*. I could see there were mixed reviews on this hotel. I made the unfortunate mistake of believing the image that the hotel website had created. The room was freezing. We had to ask for additional heating. The bathroom has no heater at all, and makes the towels feel constantly damp. Selecting a ‘city view’ room essentially means looking directly at a concrete building. The staff were very polite and did the best they could, however, major attention is needed to make this hotel worth paying for. I couldn’t wait to get home to somewhere clean and warm. I never write reviews. But I had booked this as a surprise for NYE and was left feeling very embarrassed. I have stayed in actual 4* hotels in Lisbon which have been more central, cleaner, warmer and cheaper!

"Bairro Alto Rooms"
This is more of a hostel than a hotel, but it suited us perfectly. There is no food on offer but there are many bars and restaurants nearby. There are 4 rooms on the ground floor of the house which is in a small road which is blocked at one end to traffic, therefore it's nice and quiet at night.

"Nice location, unique style, but could improve"
Staying at Bairro Alto is a nice experience. It is a lively area, but the windows reduced the outside noise nicely. The bedroom was nice, decorated in a funky way and with a very comfortable bed. The downside was the bathroom, which was in between some renovation, and considerably dirty. Dirty as in your fingers would get black if you were to touch the tiles in the shower, for example. There was also some loose sand on the floor; it simply was in the middle of some renovation work and not really fit for guests. The hotel staff simply pointed this out and didn't seem to consider it a big problem, though, which is a shame, because nearly everything else about this place was quite alright. Don't expect a lot of service, though; there are only four rooms, and there is no one available at the reception most of the time (they do come if you call, though).

Très bonne situation, à l'entrée du Barrio Alto, juste en haut de l'arrivée du funiculaire. l'hôtel est dans une rue au calme ce qui est préférable dans ce quartier très animé la nuit. Hôtel sympa de seulement 4 chambres, décorées dans un style recup. personnel peu nombreux mais sympathique. un petit bémol sur le petit dej : peu copieux et facturer en plus le café nespresso un peu mesquin

"Not Recommend"
12/28/15 Robert A
We arrived at the room in the morning, prearranged with Flavio and no one answered. After ringing the bell many times and calling many times we left. So much for planning ahead with Falvio. He is not a reliable person so becareful! Also there was lots of graffiti on the outside of the hotel so if you don't like graffiti don't stay here. However, if you like graffiti all over the outside of your hotel, then maybe this is the place for you. In any event, everyone else in Portugal has been nice. Enjoy your trip!

"Lovely part of Lisbon"
02/03/15 Alison C London, United Kingdom
My husband and i stayed here for 3 nights in January. It is in a lovely part of Lisbon that has cobbled streets, lots of local bars, restaurants and bakeries nearby. The hotel only has 4 rooms, all of them have en-suites. Our bedroom and bathroom were large with a mix of old and new decor. We had just a shower with no bath which was very warm and powerful. Flavio (think that is how it is spelt), the man in charge was very polite and helpful during our stay. The hotel, although close to lively bars was very quiet. I would recommend this hotel if you like places small and friendly that have a very personal feel.

I have bookedhouse4 because it was apparently very design and a luxury place to stay. I am totally dispointed! For lisbon, it's expensive (95€ incl. Breakfast). The room we had was very small and without windows… (not pleasant AT ALL!) The bathroom is also very tiny and the separation with the bedroom is ridiculous (you hear everthing and steam comes from the bathroom to the bedroom). The breakfast is not very good and light is the common room is low. Good points are the situation, in the heart of barrio alto, multicolor lights in the room which are funny the first 15min. Maybe we were not lucky with our room but I would not recommend it.

I loved this hotel because it was very charming. It feels like if you were at home. I went with my wife to Lisbon to celebrate our honeymoon and it was wonderful. We loved Lisbon and the Barrio Alto. The hotel is in a perfect location. At just 300 meters of the hotel you have El mirador which is a nice place where you can see excellent views of the city. Also the staff of the hotel was very friendly and helpful, they will help you with any questions you may have. If you are visiting Lisbon and you are looking for a romantic getaway, pleasure trip or any other kind of trip House4ba is the hotel to stay.

House4 is the best place i ever stayed in. A beautiful boutique hotel situated in the best place in the city, bairro alto where you can go from a walking distance to the best restaurants and bars in Lisbon. The staff is very friendly and attends to every single need.Quiet hotel, very clean and the beds are superbly comfortable. A beautiful breakfast until 12 or 1 pm if you need to rest... Not a conventional hotel which is great. I felt like i was home. I travel a lot and i do recommend this place to everybody. young, older or with kids. The perfect escape... Catia UK

"Hard to find and not worth the search"
05/03/12 PortiaLancs London, United Kingdom
Anyone who has read any of my previous reviews will know that I am very fair in my report of properties and very rarely have anything to complain about. This is the exception to that rule. This was an awful place to stay - if its a home from home for some people, then I do wonder what their homes must be like. My first and main complaint is about the bathroom. I was horrified to see that the shower was in fact a Hoselock garden hose - I have photographs to prove this. There were no bath taps so taking a bath after a hard days sight seeing was out of the question. Whilst showering, it was impossible for me to stand upright under the 'shower' - I am 5'6" and the shower would go no further than about 5'3" which meant having to crouch to wash my hair. The water was so slow to drain away that it was still in the bath several minutes later. There was some kind of leak as well which meant that the water flooded the bathroom. There was only one lamp in the bathroom which meant it was virtually impossible to see yourself in the mirror in the evenings. The walls of the bathroom were very badly stained as well. Breakfast - orange squash (not even fresh) no water, coffee that was warmed in the microwave when we advise them that the coffee pot contents were cold. Couple of bits of bread with cheese and ham and jam (with a hair in mine on the first morning :( ) The 'designer' furniture was not at all conducive to a comfortable breakfast, one plastic stool and one chair that was too low for the table. We found that we could not face this breakfast and ate elsewhere. The only plus side was the location, but for 120 euros per night I would have expected a lot more than this. I booked with a company called Splendia and I contacted them on my return to raise my concerns about this place. They contacted me today to say that the hotel state that it is as advertised on their website and that 91% of people like it!! - which is utter rubbish. They also said that there was a bar and 24 hour reception. Well the bar was a shelf with some wine on it and the 24 hr reception was a cupboard which was not manned all the time. If you like to pay over the odds for poor quality accommodation then by all means go ahead and book it. To me this should have been no more than 50 euros per night. I will not be using Splendia again and will, in future, look carefully at any property described as 'Boutique' I would say it was more like Primark. I doubt that they will put my review on their website -there do not appear to be any 'bad ones' which is par for the course with these types of company. Ah well, lesson learned and hopefully not to be repeated. Apart from all that, Lisbon is a wonderful place to visit - good value for money for food and drink and very pleasant people.
