We stayed here for five nights in May with another couple and it was a great apartment to rent. Especially during the Champions soccer final - away from the crowds at the end of the day. The son of the owner picked us up at the airport - which was very helpful. The apartment came with wine, beer, water, fruit and honey which was a pleasant surprise. You just mark down what you eat and drink and leave cash at the end of your stay. Delicious honey! The washing machine was great! The owners leave a manual about the area with restaurant and food shopping recommendations. On the first night we went across the street for Fado and dinner - such a great experience. To get around, no need to rely on Tram 28, just walk to the right when leaving the apartment and head down the hill to the Apolonia station and take the metro anywhere. Get a pass for the number of days you are in town. The pass includes the tram and all buses too. The owners were great, dealt with a clogged shower drain quickly. If you have mobility issues, you may struggle with the Alfama area, and the stairs to the apartment, but otherwise a great deal for a lovely apartment. So nice to have a little terrace too.
A wonderfully modern , clean, and well equipped apartment in the heart of the Alfama District. Old world charm with narrow cobblestoned streets with lots of nearby sights.

Owner was most helpful both in helping with arrangements as well as advice on local transportation restaurants and sights.
