Location: The location of this hotel was ideal. This was our first trip to Lisbon and from here we could easily walk to most of the tourist destinations. The hotel is perched on a hill near the Rossio Square. There are sidewalks and stairs to take you down this hill. It is also very close to the Elevador de Santa...

We found Casa Balthazar online when researching places to stay and the reviews and pictures were great so we decided to book a room. The location is right in the old town and within 5 minutes to 2 different Metrro stops. It's within walking distance to all of the various sections of Lisbon. The staff was so friendly and helpful....

Positively a lovely place to stay. Central location bus, train, restaurants & walking tours. This hotel/ B&B is situated on a hill overlooking the main train station. This is actually a plus. The trains slow and its the last stop train station, we did not notice any train noises.The view is of the tip of the station, the castle and...

We spent three nights in this wonderful place. It is not easy to find, behind a tall wall in a very narrow street, but when you enter, it gives you immediately the feeling of being at home. A hidden paradise with friendly and efficient stuff. Best choice - we will come back.

My fiancée and I recently stayed for 3 nights here in March/April 2016 and we loved it. The location is great, the hotel is modern and clean and the staff could not do enough to help.

When our taxi driver couldn't find the entrance to our hotel in Lisbon, I got very nervous. After circling the area many times and almost carrying our luggage up a city staircase to the small side street, we finally wiggled our way to the inconspicuous front door to this hidden gem in the heart of Lisbon. Enter a courtyard to...

My husband and I spent four nights at Casa Balthazar and had a truly wonderful experience. The staff is extremely polite and helpful.

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.
