Cheap hotels in Bairro Alto & Chiado, Lisbon

To the west of Baixa, the Bairro Alto twists up a mountain, Its moody, evocative streets are bordered by steep stairways and winding alleys. The Bairro Alto is desperately beautiful, with its organic mixture of the hip, rustic, and picturesque. Fairly recently reborn as a trendy 'hood, Bairro Alto is crowded at night thanks to hot clubs, bars, and restaurants.

Between Bairro Alto and Baixa is the sloping neighborhood of Chiado. Full of cafes, museums, pricey boutiques, and theatres, Chiado is the sophisticated older sibling of Bairro Alto. It's not quite as stunningly, edgily gorgeous as Bairro Alto, but it's still charming in its more ordered way.
