Adorable little apartment close to the historic No. 28 tram route

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely three night stay at João’s apartment in picturesque Alfama neighbourhood. The place was lively, but not noisy, at night with traditional Fado entertainment, restaurants and cafes. We took the No.28 tram (a lovely experience in itself) into town very easily from the Port de Sol nearby. We were able to fit in loads of sightseeing as everywhere was accessible by public transport. Eating at The Teatro Mini Bar was one of the highlights of the trip, plus Torre de Belém, Time Out Market, Escher exhibition, Santa Justa Elevador, National Tile Museum and more. João greeted us with wine and biscuits and was the perfect host. Emma and Neil

Great location, nicely appointed, friendly and helpful host.

We were looking for somewhere in the old quarter, and were pleased with how the apartment was central there and, while being modern, in amongst the everyday residents.

The apartment is a nice size for two. Located on a quiet street in the pedestrian Alfama.

  • 4 of 5

Nice bright main room with nice window and balcony overlooking a quiet street in Alfama neighborhood. The bedroom is tucked away and stays dark for optimal sleeping. Bathroom was clean. Overall a very nice apartment. Half of the fun of staying in this neighborhood is getting lost in the winding pedestrian streets! Enjoy!

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!

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.
