Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, maximum capacity 4 people in the Alfama Center

The building is historical and kept all the original design. It is located on a pedestrian street in the heart of Alfama, one of the oldest districts of Lisbon, between the Castle of S. Jorge and the Tagus River, a village within the city, live and still breathes a charming and timeless Lisbon, having survived the 1755 earthquake fully intact.

Discovering between medieval streets and alleys, narrow alleys, with sound singers enliven the neighborhood every day, is small squares, churches, traditional shops, grocery stores, crafts and typical restaurants where we sing the "Fado".

From Alfama you can easily walk easily to other historical areas of Lisbon, as the Baixa, the Castle, the Cathedral, the Monastery of São Vicente de Fora, the Pantheon, the Fado Museum and the popular flea market. The trendy Lux Nightclub near the Tagus river is only 10 minutes away. '

 Enjoy and make an unforgettable journey aboard the tram 28 (right next to the house) by the historic Lisbon.

Perfect retreat for a couple

  • 5 of 5

Maria's apartment is cozy and quite tiny, but a perfect place for a couple's get away. It is located in beautiful Alfama about 10 mins north of the metro station Santa Apolónia with many, many local restaurants and mini markets to choose from. It was clean and well equipped for our stay. Though there is no A/C, the nights are quite comfortable with the windows open. Please note: the apartment requires quite a steep walk up hilly cobble stone streets. If you have mobility restrictions, it may not be the best fit for you. It was a perfect start to our 3 week European get-away to celebrate our 10 year anniversary!

Lovely little apartment is a good location

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment. Small size would personally advise it best suits

1-2 people. The location is good, right next to the trams, in the old part of Lisbon with plenty of restaurants, cafe, bars etc. I walked in to the centre of Lisbon in about 15-20 mins. Liked being in the old part with easy access to the city centre. Comfy bed and good shower. Lots of English TV channels to choose from which is unusual. Overall, good stay, good host and would stay again.

Very central location.

  • 4 of 5

This is a very compact apartment, ideal for a couple however we were a family (2 adults and 2 children), it was a bit tight for us but is manageable if you use it only as a base to explore Lisbon.

The location is perfect to explore the old town and María was always in contact answering our questions.

Certainly we can recommend the owner and the place.

Nel cuore della Lisbona che pulsa!

  • 5 of 5

Un piccolo appartamento nel quartiere Alfama, dove si respira la Lisbona fuori dagli schemi turistici, dotato di ogni comfort e molto accogliente. La posizione è perfetta per visitare la città a piedi oppure girarla in lungo e largo con il mitico tram 28, la cui fermata è a pochi metri da qui. L'appartamento è ideale per due persone anche se in realtà dispone di quattro posti letto. L'accoglienza e la pazienza di Margarida sono da sottolineare, così come l'assistenza di Maria, la proprietaria. Lo consiglio a chi voglia assaporare e calarsi nella magica atmosfera lisboeta, e portarsi a casa un pezzo di questa cultura.
