The Baixa House is situated in one of the typical bustling streets of the Lower Town (Baixa) in the heart of Lisbon. The 18th century building was erected after the devastating earthquake of 1755. Many original features including wooden floors, tiles, window frames, doors or ceiling beams have been preserved in the award-winning renovation of the house. In the 13 apartments – named after Lisbon parks – the theme “garden“ runs like a red thread through the interior design: in the form of wallpaper with colourful flowers, paintings and photos or vintage outdoor furniture. The decor is a charming mix of lovingly restored furniture, traditional Portuguese handicrafts and original details. It doesn’t feel like staying in an anonymous hotel, but in a home. The difference being that at Baixa House you do not have to worry about cooking breakfast and cleaning!

Anabela Bartolo, the manager of Baixa House, is a curious and savvy traveller who knows Portugal inside out. She takes true pleasure in discovering Lisbon's trends, the old and the new, and is always available to share her insights. Speaking 5 languages makes it so easy. She personally is in charge of the small details: going to the local flower shop and choose your fresh flowers, buying the bread, making yoghurt or testing the new recipes for the homemade cake.
