Alfama Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Sunny holiday rental apartment in the heart of Alfama, the oldest most picturesque neighborhoods in the center of Lisbon. Owned by a New York City Artist. It is on the third floor of an 18th century typical Alfama house with lots of sun in the day and cool for sleeping in the night in summer. Sleeps three adults, there is also a baby crib. Newly renovated with old Portuguese style. A small balcony looks out on the tiny streets of this old neighborhood.

This is a 100% Non-Smoking apartment.

(This apartment is in the same house as my other Listing #250892 and can be rented together if you are 2 couples or two families traveling together. They are completely separate, each with same amenities.)

It is only a 5 minutes to walk to the Castelo Sao Jorge and 3 minute walk to the famous Feira da Ladra (flea market), and a 3 minute walk to the River Tejo, with restaurants with terraces on the river. And, you can travel around Lisbon on the delightful, picturesque electric tram # 28 which is a 1 minute walk from the apartment. It is a 5 minute walk to the new Metro Station in Sta. Apolonia Train Station. (Lisbon's main terminal) In the station is a Pingo Doce supermarket open until 11PM, very convenient!

The neighborhood is filled with many authentic Fado houses, cafes and restaurants. Alfama is the oldest part of the city with tiny streets to discover.

The apartment has a separate bedroom with a double bed, ( for 2 people) a sunny living room with a sofa bed (for one person), and dining table. A complete kitchen with gas stove, microwave, fridge, toaster, washing machine. The apt. is equipped with cable TV (English + French, CNN, BBC, Portuguese and other languages), stereo, radio, iPod doc. Free Wi-Fi. A full bathroom with shower. Hair dryer.

From the windows you have a nice view over the small square Largo de Santo Estevão In winter time the apartments are heated with electric heaters and there are fans for summer cooling. If I am not in Lisbon I have a very responsible manager who is there to help if there are any problems or questions.

Includes cleaning, towels and sheets. Minimum of 3 nights preferred.

Price includes everything, there are NO EXTRA CHARGES.

Check in after 12 noon / Check out 11 AM

If you are arriving earlier, you can still go to the apt., leave your bags, check in, and then go out so the cleaner can come. The apt. will be cleaned and prepared by 3PM.

I am a woman artist. I live in New York and Lisbon.

ellie ali purchased this apartment in 2006

Lisbon is a very charming old world city, not on the regular tourist trail. It has lots of outdoor cafes on every street. The art, music and food of Portugal is found in abundance in Lisbon, the capital. I chose the Alfama neighborhood because of it's ancient feel, tiny streets with very few cars, people who have lived there for many generations keeping their old traditions. You are in the city and at the same time in a tiny village with an atmosphere of another time. I am a painter and find the city beautiful and inspiring.

The apartment is a 3 minute walk to the River Tejo, the large river that runs through Lisbon to the Atlantic. It is a short trip to Estoril beaches by public transport. The famous TRAM #28 which is 1 minute walk from the door, takes you on an enchanting ride through the tiny streets and hills across Lisbon. You don't need a car in Lisbon, public transport and taxis are very abundant and not expensive. Lisbon is a 'secret' city that lives on it's own time. Portuguese people revere their quality of life, which I have found emphasizes eating good fresh food (excellent fish) and drinking the wines of the country, which is another wonderful discovery.

Charming and perfect for experiencing life in the Alfama

My partner and I booked this apartment for a week in July. It was our first visit to Lisbon & we wanted to experience life in the Alfama, with its history, narrow streets, cobble stones and unique culture. This is the perfect apartment for a couple to experience this. The amenities are comfortable, including two fans which were useful as it is was very hot. There was a stove top but no oven, but a useful microwave, although we didn't cook much as the locale eateries are so tempting and reasonably priced. The washing machine was useful and the water hot for clothes/dish washing and showers. We loved exploring the locale - Sao Vincente Monastery is just up the hill (as is the "thieves" flea market - fascinating second hand stuff for sale), the 28 tram a block away, cafes, restaurants and fado houses within walking distance, handy shops close by, and an opportunity to interact with the local people - who spend alot of time outside talking, singing and the kids playing during the summer. There is even a funky surrealist gallery just opened opposite for art lovers. (And interesting images on the walls of the apartment too) It is only 10 mins from Sao Apollo station which was handy for the metro to the airport, and other connections. And easy to walk into the commercial area. Ellie was a very helpful owner and the booking was very straight forward. Her agents were easy to contact, spoke English and reliable. Great value and recommended. We love Lisbon and will be back!

Hi Ellie,
We want to thank you for having us again in your apartment. I think it was in 2009 we came the first time and stayed in your 2nd floor apartment which was wonderful. My husband and I had such sweet memories of Alfama wanted to return to Lisbon so we could discover more about the city and travel a little around Portugal this time. So, of course we wanted to come to Alfama and stay in your apartment again. We were delighted that now you have the third floor apartment as well, so we chose that one for this trip, and it was just lovely. It had everything we could want in the apartment, comfortable well appointed, high ceilings and that nice large shower. Very bright with lots of light, even on cloudy days. And we must say that it's a very good price for such a nice apartment.

This time we explored the neighborhood much more - it is such a maze of charming tiny beautiful streets. We discovered our favorite little cafes and restaurants - some we remembered and some are new. And not expensive… It is such a short walk to the Flea Market and the center of town. Really all the sights are so easy to get to from your apt. We walked every where!! Oh, the hills in Lisbon gave us new leg muscles!! We appreciate all the help you give us in sending the great directions to things and advising what to do in Lisbon and for some of those excellent restaurant recommendations.
After renting a car at the airport ( again your recommendation) , we drove to Alentejo and around the south of the country - Altogether a wonderful time.
Thank you, Ellie, for letting us stay in your apartment, we will tell our friends.

Wonderful Apartment in the Best Location

We could not have been happier. This apartment is perfectly located in the most charming neighborhood in old Alfama. All the sites are within a short walk and literally hundreds of quaint cafes are along the way. (One warning: WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES!) There are some shops just outside the apartment with very helpful shopkeepers. This is a real residential street and the locals are really nice - amazing how many speak English! The architecture in the neighborhood is so very interesting, including the building housing the apartment, which must be hundreds of years old. The apartment is roomy and has everything you need - even a washer. The free Wi-Fi worked perfectly. The photos in the ad are accurate.

Comfortable Apartment on Lively Street

We rented this apartment for four nights in July 2013. It was spacious, well equipped and easy to reach by public transit. Owner and local management were well organized, responsive, informative and pleasant. I liked the apartment, but it is located across the way from a social club that was open late and was louder than I would have liked.

nice apartment, but near loud bar

We rented this apartment for four nights in July 2013. It was spacious, well equipped and easy to reach by public transit. Owner and local management were well organized, responsive, informative and pleasant. I wish I could give a higher recommendation for this rental, but the apartment is located across the way from a bar (social club) that was extremely loud. People were out in the street until 2am every night (and our our stay was a non-festival Mon-Thurs) drinking, shouting, and fighting. Although it was nice to be in an authentic Alfama neighborhood and be part of the local scene, I would not recommend this apartment during the summer months when the windows stay open.
Owner's Response: I must respond because this is the first time a guest was not happy here. The week you were here was one of the hottest in a long time and I understand that the neighbors were letting off a little steam (literally!) when it finally cooled off at night.
I am sorry for that - but in every other respect the apt. was up to your expectations.
I work very, very, hard for my guests, before and after their stay. I have had so many positive reviews, that I am a bit sad that you judge your stay in my apt. negatively because of the colorful neighbors just trying to cool off after 100 degree days. I apologize for that.

The Alfama neighborhood is famous for it's special architecture and atmosphere, labyrinth of old streets, good restaurants and authentic Fado Music houses. Even being a 10 minute walk to the center of Lisbon, you enjoy feeling like you are living in a medieval town. We are a 3 minute walk to the famous flea market and lovely churches, musems, shopping, bars and great little restaurants. The Miradoro in Graça - a 5 minute walk, you can have a beautiful view over the city while enjoying a wine or coffee. And very important, English is now spoken widely in Lisbon in almost every shop and restaurant.
