An introduction to Baixa House

How would you describe Baixa House in a nutshell?

Baixa House is a small boutique hotel in Lisbon, Portugal. It is like a cozy holiday home away from home. What we want to offer people is like being at a friend’s house. It’s not like a touristy apartment, but gives people a feeling that they’re in a home environment, only better, because we bring fresh bread to their door and really take care of their needs. They don’t have to care about anything. They can just relax.

Our staff is invisible, yet visible if the guests need anything. And they are very friendly and helpful, but give the guests their privacy.

What would you say is your philosophy?

It’s about providing individual, personal attention to each guest. We are not a standardized hotel. I once stayed in a hotel which had a horrible painting on the wall that they wouldn’t remove. Every morning, I had to request the olive oil for the bread at breakfast. There was no personal attention; I had to conform to their standards. This is the difference between Baixa House and regular hotels.

What was your inspiration to open Baixa House?

The owner was going to rent out a few of the apartments in the building to tourists and have permanent renters in the others. I knew the building, it’s very special, so I thought it would be interesting to do a project for the building since most other buildings here have lost their character. The location is very good too and makes you really feel like you’re in Lisbon.

How long would you recommend people to stay in Lisbon?

Three days is the minimum to get an idea of everything Lisbon has to offer. But if you really like to enjoy the feel of the city, I would recommend five. When people book and say they want to see a particular area outside of Lisbon, we recommend they stay in those areas for a little bit before staying here, as the day trips can be too time consuming to enjoy your stay at Baixa House.

What has been the biggest reward about running Baixa House as a small hotel?

In each apartment we have a classical Portuguese notebook that guests can write their comments in.

One was a note by a Dutch holiday guest who made a design of the discovery monument in Lisbon, but drawing my team instead of the conquerors. The way he drew it and the words he wrote around it was very special. It’s rewarding when people are happy and have enjoyed the place.

Baixa House rooms & rates

All floors have three apartments each, except the second and the fifth floors, which have two each.

Each apartment has been individually decorated and has its own unique character. I especially like apartment 4B, the Campo Grande. It has the best light in the building. I also like Jeronimos, apartment 2C. I love the furniture in there, and it has beautiful wallpaper in the kitchen.

The architecture of Baixa House is very impressive. When I think that that area was rebuilt in 30 years at the end of the 18th century with that quality of construction and the buildings are still there, it’s very special. They were modern designs for that time. I also love the design of the place, and all of the little details, from the flowers to the linen bag for the bread.

When you come to Baixa House, you are welcomed by us as a friend. We ask our guests what they like in terms of visiting the place, whether it’s food, museums, and so on, and personalize the stay for them.

We’re not a hotel in the sense that there is nothing standard at Baixa House. We offer more flexibility and privacy. It’s about providing individual, personal attention to each guest. When holiday guests stay a second time with us, we go over their previous paperwork to ensure we offer their preferences in terms of food, care, etc., so their stay is more personal. Also, if anyone needs advice and we aren’t in the office, they can call us anytime. There’s always someone available.

And since all the apartments are self-catering, if you want to organize a dinner with friends, you can cook, but have us clean up.

Things to do in Lisbon

  • Art / Culture
  • Shopping / Markets
  • Night life
  • Boat trips

The Ultramar Tropical Garden in front of the Jerónimos Monastery is my favorite garden in Lisbon, together with the unexplored ‘Tapada das Necessidades’. From there, walk along the river bank to the Museu da Electricidade, which often has contemporary art exhibitions happening. Then cross the line of the train to Alcantara and visit LX Factory, an old industrial area which is transforming into a cultural centre. From there, you can walk to the Madragoa area, which is a very charming but still unexplored area of Lisbon. Take the tram 25 back to Baixa House to relax a bit before having dinner at one of the restaurants nearby.

On Saturdays and Tuesdays I love the flea markets in the Graça area of Lisbon. It is my neighborhood, full of charm and life with the best views of the city from Miradouro da Senhora do Monte and a few simple local restaurants where you can enjoy the best of Portuguese cuisine.

The Gulbenkian Foundation is another must nobody should miss. And of course if you have time and love the sea, you should book a sailing trip on the Tejo river: you’ll have a perfect view of Lisbon from the water.

And if you want to have a real fado experience, don't book the first place you see: ask us for a non-touristic place so you feel the real soul of Lisbon.

We loved the location and the apartment at Baixa House! The apartment, very well designed with a relaxed mix of old and new, was comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen. Felt spacious for our group of 3. Delicious fresh bread, cheese, fruit and coffee/tea delivered each morning. Staff is friendly and helpful!

Baixa House was such a lovely stay. The building and apartment were clean and welcoming, spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts delivered every morning made our stay so homey and we’re delicious. The location was great for us, very close to public transport, sights and waterfront. The one drawback is it is located on a very busy street with cable cars going down all night. This did not bother us and we all (2 kids included) slept very well, but a very light sleeper may have a hard time with the noise.. Overall, highly recommend and would definitely come back next time in Lisbon.

Baixa House is extremely well located. The hospitality and customer dedication of its employees is excellent, the old substance of the house has been respected (it's not over-restored) and it is very agreeable to have the breakfast served and the cleaning made ever day. We recommend it for those who want to live in Lissabon like the inhabitants there were used to.

I would rate my stay as 5 (very good)! Baixa house is perfectly located in the bustling Baixa area and yet reasonably quiet at night due to the clever layout. The team were very attentive and able to provide us with information, beach towels and even an umbrella when we went to the beach. All in all a great stay - thank you to Sandra, Maria and Juan for a truly enjoyable visit to Lisboa.

The location of Baixa House

Baixa House is in a very good location. You can walk everywhere in Lisbon from here. It is five mins from the river, and there are a lot of traditional shops nearby. The main street does have a lot of new brands but there are also old shops from the ‘50s, like the family-owned tailor or hat shops. There is still some sense here to keep old traditions alive. Biaxa is a special heritage protection area and Lisbon has even won an award for the preservation of its heritage. Baixa House also won an award from the Gulbenkian Foundation for the preservation of Portuguese Heritage.

When is the best time to visit Lisbon?

From mid-July to mid-September I don’t like it at all. Lisbon is very touristy then. In August, you hardly hear Portuguese in the street.

End of October and November are perfect because it never rains and we tend to have lovely sunny autumns. I also love February and the beginning of March because it doesn’t rain much then either. I’d avoid Easter though because it’s full of people.

May and June are also great, with perfect weather and long days.
