Every year in June, the streets of all three quarters come alive with the feasts in honour of the popular saints. The Graça quarter and the churches of São Vicente de Fora and Santa Engrácia are within walking distance of this area. Radiant skies brighten the monumental city, with its typical tile covered building façades and narrow.

In the heart of Alfama

  • 3 of 5
The apartment is very central, really near many view points, shops and museums the famous touristic tram 28 is some meters around the corner you can see and hear it any time. From the window you have river view and the streets are really historic around. You can visit a nice flee market on Saturday and Tuesday that is some streets from the apartment. The metro is in walking distance very good to move quickly to the north of the city, but consider, that if you arrive from the airport with the metro or with the train you have to walk with heavy luggage the streets with plenty of stairs all the way up, so rather take a taxi from the airport, this cost around 10 and 15 euros.
The apartment itself is small but you have all you need for few days staying. Scissors, pans, knives, coffee and coffee machine, some teas, salt, t.v., guides to read, etc. and if something is missing you can buy it in one of the small shops directly on the corner or beside the building.
As the apartment has only windows in the front, you need to open them often to leave fresh air in, unfortunately when the window is open the noise and also the smoke that comes from the guys smoking and drinking exactly under the window is really too much. This was quite annoying.
As we arrive the woman who gave us the key was very punctual, nevertheless the day after as we notice the toaster was not working and there were some problems with the principal door we try to catch her at the mobile phone but she never answer. After 2 days I decide to contact the agent who rent the apartment and he arranges the problematic immediately. The last day the light in the bathroom was going out of order, so we try to call the woman again and also no response, so we light the bathroom with small candles who were available in the apartment. For the last day was too late to contact the agent.
On balance the apartment is ok for the price.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the review.

In fact I confirm that the guest email me after trying to contact the housekeeper directly without success complaining about the toaster and the street door that wasn't closing properly.
We immediately provided a new toaster and the door lock was fixed too.

We're really sorry about the difficulty to receive feedback from the housekeeper and the inconvenience caused. Were are seriously taking in account this complain and we've already proceed with some measures to avoid this to happen again.
Nevertheless, all the guests have access before arrival to a second alternative mobile contact number (directly to the property owners) just in case.
If that phone contact had been used the annoying problem in the bathroom light could have been solved immediately as the others were.

Thanks again.

perfect nice litte apartment

  • 5 of 5
Das kleine, aber feine Apartment ist, wie schon vom Vermieter betitelt, mitten im Herzen des alten Lissabons. In der Wohnung ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht um sich wohlzufühlen. Im Wohnzimmer kann man gemütlich sitzen, an der Küchenzeile gut kochen, im Schlafzimmer gut schlafen und das innenliegende Bad hat einen super funktionierden Abzug. Die Lage des Apartments ist sehr zentral. In einigen Minuten ist man unten in der Stadt, zu Fuß oder auch mit den Strassenbahnen, die keine 50 m entfernt ihre Haltestellen haben. Restaurants, Pastelarias, Padarias und Läden sind alle in der Nähe. Zwei kleine Lebensmittelläden sind direkt vor der Tür. Drei meiner Lieblings-Miradouros sind in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen.
Hier bekommt man das Leben in der Altstadt (Grenze Graca/ Alfama) hautnah mit.
Der Kontakt zum Vermieter ist sehr nett und unkompliziert. Er und die Senhora, die einem den Schlüsssel übergibt, sind im Notfall immer erreichbar und stehen einem hilfreich zur Seite.
Wir haben schöne Tage in Lissabon in diesem Apartment verlebt. Ich kann es nur empfehlen.

Fantastic Alfama flat!

  • 5 of 5
We simply loved our stay at the ‘Salvador House’..!
The flat is absolutely gorgeous and its location is perfect to visit the old parts of the city. The flat itself was very cleaned and comfortable and its closeness to local shops and the old tram line was a real bonus. The owner was also very friendly and helpful. I would most definitely recommend this flat to others that wish to visit Lisbon.
We’ll certainly be back soon!
