The Alfama River Apartments consist of 4 apartments in the same building. The 2 described here are both two bedroom apartments, recently renovated and lovingly restored in 2010. They both form part of a traditional building in the historic Alfama district in the heart of central Lisbon, located next to the Santa Apolonia Metro/Train station for convenient transport facilities. Nestled amongst the cobbled streets, picturesque squares and traditional Fado restaurants of the charming Alfama district, ample natural light enters from the balconies, illuminating the wooden beams and historic azulejo Portuguese tiles, to create a fresh and clean and interior, which mixes both traditional and modern styles. Both apartments have spacious living rooms, double beds in each bedroom, and can comfortably sleep up to 6 guests. We offer free broadband Wifi Internet, and all mod-cons such as cable TV, washing machine, dish-washer and air-conditioning. Towels and sheets are provided.
Just a short walk to major sights such as the National Pantheon - where the famous fado singer Amalia Rodrigues is buried - and which is just round the corner, the Fado Museum, Lisbon Castle and Lisbon Cathedral, together with the central squares of Rossio and Praça do Comércio, and the wonderful 'miradouros' (viewpoints) of Alfama, like the Portas do Sol, and Miradouro Santa Luzia. This area has plenty of cafeterias, bars, traditional fado restaurants, as well as the small village-type shops typical of Alfama. In the Santa Apolonia station just 150 meters away there is a 'Pingo Doce' supermarket and just opposite the station there is a Chemist's (pharmacy). On the opposite side of the main road, next to the river, there is a large open-air car park which charges approx. 5 Euro per day.
