Best in Alfama
Submitted: May 11, 2013

If you are looking for a great place to stay in Lisbon, then you can't go past this property. It is in a central position close to everything. My wife and I walked everywhere to see the major sites, other than Belem area which you have to catch a bus to.
The apartment is fully equipped with everything you might need. We stayed there for 5 nights and loved it. The apartment is very clean and any groceries you might need during your stay would be available in the shop just outside your front door in the narrow street. There are lots of restaurants and Fado clubs to visit.
The owner, Paulo, is just wonderful. He went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. He even picked us up from the airport and took us to the apartment. He showed us how everything worked and where things were situated in the area. He even helped to take us to the the car hire office at the end of our 5 day visit He is most helpful and we are very indebted to his kindness and service.
If you want to experience Lisbon, then the narrow streets of Alfama is the way to go. You will not regret taking this apartment for a few days as the position is perfect and Paulo's service is great. We are in our early 60's and fit enough to go up the stairs to the apartment.

Owner's Response: I'm so happy to hear that you had such a great time in Lisboa and at our apartment. After 29 hours of travel from the very other side of the globe i'm delighted to know that Alfama paid the effort.
I'm the one that have to thank you for all the kindness, the gifts, the profund knowledge you put on the preparation of your trip to Portugal and the real interest in discover everything about our history and way of living. Sometimes, it was not easy to surprise you :-)
It was an honour to welcome you and i sincerely hope to meet you two again.
