The pioneer house…
The Casa do Bairro Bed and Breakfast by Shiadu, the first house of the Shiadu group, received its first guests in spring of 2009 giving new life to the small and picturesque Beco do Caldeira.
Located in the heart of the Santa Catarina neighborhood, two step from the portuguese parliament and from the Santos neighborhood, this Bed and Breakfast was the result of the recovery and restauration of a grand apartment that had once given place to a boarding house.
Between double, triple and family rooms, all the corners of this house were thought of thoroughly so that the guests would know the typical alfacinha hospitality, with the maximum comfort. As all details matter, the first breakfasts served where done so in the shadow of a blooming fig tree. Currently, it is still on the small terrace that most guests like to rest under the sun, to receive exclusive tips from our guest-relations or simply enjoy a glass of good Portuguese wine.
Casa do Bairro Bed & Breakfast was the starting point for defining in a clear and evident manner what characterizes our lodgings: serenity, excellent geographical location, differentiated and personalized decor, charm, elevated housekeeping standards, homemade breakfasts with fresh products and always a close and attentive service to every guest.
This is the ideal Bed and Breakfast for those who seek accommodations in the heart of Lisbon but away from the city bustle, guaranteeing a genuine experience in a traditional neighborhood. In an easy walking distance, you will find several points of interest: Chiado, Bairro Alto, Príncipe Real or the tram 28 wait for you… follow your instinct!
At Shiadu, each guest sees their stay complemented with a series of services already included in their room rate, as well as other services that can be solicited before or during their stay, at an additional cost. For added convenience, the payment of all services not included in the room rate must be made during check out, with our guest relations.
In addition to the services mentioned above, between 08h00 and 21h00 daily, there is a guest relations team available for personalized service and always attentive to every guest.
“Don’t be a tourist, be a traveller!”
“Romantic coblestone steets, sent of a lemon tree and warmest hospitality!”
To really understand what the above sentence means, you have to stay at the Casa do Bairro when you visit Lisbon. Located right in the heart of Lisbon’s old and lively neighbourhood, Bairro Alto, this gem of a boutique guesthouse makes you feel like you have stepped into an old friend’s house from the moment you enter. Make no mistake, it is not the easiest place to find, but then again so are most well kept secret pleasures of foreign cities.
Magda, Hugo, and Andreas are all incredibly helpful and give you the best tips to experience Lisbon like a local does – from the nicest classic Portuguese restaurants to chic lounges with breathtaking views of Lisbon sunset with a cooling drink, from best sightseeing spots in the city to great “fado” locations to enjoy Lisbon in the evening.
Being so close to one of the liveliest parts of town, you might think that noise might be an issue. Do not worry. Whether you decide to enjoy the view with the scent of a lemon tree by taking a break in the lovely terrace, or just want to relax a bit in the tranquility of your room, you will find that Casa do Bairro is so close yet so far from the heart of a beautiful city. .
Best wishes and kind regards.

We are just about to check out from our stay at Casa do Bairro. What a wonderful little hotel. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly. They went far out out their way to help us in any way they could. As for the room – it was immaculate, has the most comfortable beds and bedding, huge bathtub and separate shower. Decorations were first class and incredibly tasteful. The hotel (B&B) is located on a little street away from the hustle and bustle but convenient to all transportation. It is on a hill but was manageable. Thank you for all your help, recommendations to fabulous restaurants, and for a wonderful experience in Lisbon, despite the rain 🙂
