About the property

Cosy and spacious living room, one bedroom, kitchenette. Sleeps 4.

This cosy apartment is located in a quiet, pedestrian street of Alfama. The historic building has been completely rebuilt (2012) and, although the façade has been preserved, the interior is completely new: one spacious living room with kitchenette and river view, one bedroom and one bathroom. The apartment offers all modern facilities and is fully equipped. Free Internet, towels and bed linen are also provided.

Only a few steps away you can take the popular tram 28 that rides the scenic tour of Lisbon hills. Check the miradouros nearby and enjoy the dazzling views: Lisbon’s rooftops, church towers and the Tagus. There are Fado restaurants, cafés and tradicional shops, all in the area.

The area is also well served with public transports (Bus, Taxis, Metro and Train). You can explore the rest of the city and return easily!

During your stay, we will do our best to make you feel our apartment as your Lisbon home.

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely modern, well kept apartment in a great area of Alfama. It's close to the Portas Do Sol stop for the 28 Tram which is handy when coming back up from the town, (this spot is also a great place for a beer on the terrace overlooking Alfama for note!). Only slight flaw we found was there is no air-conditioning in the apartment, and we had a couple of particularly hot days/nights so we struggled slightly, though there was a portable fan we could use.

Joao was great, he was waiting at the apartment for us even though is was quite late, and had provided some lovely biscuits and wine!

Thanks for a nice stay Joao!

Lovely Apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Situated in the heart of Alfama, the apartment is cozy, bright, very clean and well equipped. We were met by the owner at the agreed upon time and he was very welcoming. The on line photos are exactly what you get.

We were able to walk to many restaurants and shops including the St. Jorge Castle, a must see, as well as further afield without any problem. Lisbon is a fantastic city to explore on foot. Don't miss taking the famous Tram 28 as well as Tram 12. A great experience.

We would definitely return to this rental and indeed hope to do so in the fall.

Great apartment, great location, wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location, we came to know the city well while we were there and the Alfama district is the most interesting place to be in Lisbon. The apartment itself was wonderful. Very, very clean, modern and up to date and equipped with all necessary conveniences. Joao, the owner was great to deal with from beginning to end I wholeheartedly recommend this to one and all.

We had a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Joao's apartment in the quaint Alfama neighborhood! The apartment was perfect for our stay in Lisbon and Joao made us feel right at home. Everything was impeccably clean and the entire building is up-dated and modern. Joao was readily available to answer any questions we had that came up during the week (no matter how weird they were!). We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Lisbon!

Fabulous apartment - Wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

Finding and staying in this apartment made our stay in Lisbon much more than just a typical tourist stop. We felt like we were living with "locals." The apartment was modern, clean, and comfortable. Fruit, wine, and biscuits were left for us to enjoy. After walking all over Lisbon, we also decided that the apartment's location was in our favorite area - Alfama. Very friendly people, narrow cobblestone alleyways and streets, hills and stairs, small shops, restaurants, fado, great architecture, no hotels (at least none we noticed), all describe this neighborhood. Public transportation is nearby if you prefer to ride instead of walk to other areas of Lisbon, or if you want to explore beyond the city limits.

Joao was extremely helpful both before and during our stay. We would highly recommend this location and apartment to anyone visiting Lisbon. If you are traveling with heavy luggage, the only suggestion I would make would be to ask for walking directions to the apartment that do not include stairs. It would be a bit longer, but easier rolling the luggage. Again, this apartment was perfect for us. And, best of all, the price was very, very reasonable.

Owner's Response: Thank you Michele. We are currently working on an Alfama Map. Next time we would be able to provide you with a detailed map of all Alfama streets and alleys. So that you can take the most out of your walks in the area. We will also provide details on how the transportation system works, tickets, prices, etc. Hope you come back again next year, we will be happy to have you as our guest. All the best.

The apartment is located in a pedestrian street in the heart of historic Alfama, one of Lisbon’s oldest and most typical quarters, between the Castle and the Tagus River.

Only a few minutes’ walk from the popular tram no. 28 that rides the scenic tour of Lisbon hills. Don’t miss the viewpoint of Portas do sol, only 5 minutes’ walk and enjoy the dazzling views: Lisbon’s rooftops, church towers and the Tagus. The apartment is also near fado restaurants, cafés and traditional shops.

Besides walking through medieval Alfama, you can easily reach on foot the lower city (the Baixa), the Cathedral, the Castle, São Vicente Monastery, the domed National Pantheon, the Decorative Arts Museum, the Fado Museum, and the popular Feira da Ladra (flea market).

If you enjoy nightlife you can’t skip the fashionable disco “Lux”, by the river, only 10 minutes away.
