100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
My 10 year old son and I stayed here for a few days and found it perfect. As noted in other reviews, it is small and with steep steers and low ceilings, but it works very well for 2 or 3. Great location, near sights and restaurants.
Thank you for the nice, short and informative review Faye! Glad you had a good time, Mario
Medieval charm in the big city!
This apartment was exactly as described. It has steep stairs, and low ceilings, but it is all worth it to feel like an inhabitant of the local village within a major city. The kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed plus more. Our host even arranged the drivers for us to and from the airport. Would stay here again!
Thank you Karen for such a nice and informative review! A pleasure hosting you, Mario
Très bon accueil de Mario, le lit est ferme et la localisation est excellente. Mais l'appartement est tellement petit que c'est très inconfortable même pour deux personnes. Le mobilier mal adapté aux pièces n'aide en rien.
Merci pour votre avis Pierre. Excusez-moi, mais si votre seul reproche (et la seul raison pour 2 étoiles seulement) est que l'appartement est petit, je pense que c'est un commentaire malheureux. Il est écrit partout, titre de l'annonce également, et dans la plupart des critiques, que l'appartement est petit. Même si vous avez choisi cet appartement. C'est comme si vous louiez une voiture "Smart" et que vous vous plaigniez de sa petite taille. Mario
The apartment was in a very interesting location with lots of shops and cafes nearby. We enjoyed the area surrounding the apartment very much and appreciated the information we were given. The apartment was smaller than we expected.
Thank you for your comment Edie. As addvertised, apartment is 35 square meters. Mario
Stay within the castle walls
The apartment is cosy and high on a hill within the walls of the castle.
Charming older area with nice shops and restaurants. Well equipped, but small spaces, and steep stairs. Bus nearby.
Thank you for your comment Beth. True, small spaces and steep stairs, just like advertised and pictures. Mario
Wonderful hospitality from Mario. Answered every email before we arrived and was on hand to answer queries while there . Loved this clean apartment. We were a party of three and it was a good size. Loved being up on hill amongst the locals. Big supermarket nearby and loads of places to eat. The stairs in apartment are steep as noted. Highly recommend. We would return again. Thank you Mario !
Thank you too Jacqueline! We followed your advice and equipped the kitchen with a toaster (thanks for the tip). Soon again? Mario
Alfama 3 is located at 1, Espirito Santo Street, inside the first walls of Saint george Castle in the Alfama neighbourhood.
Walking in this centuries years old neighbourhood is like diving in history: Lisbon was born here and grew along the centuries towards the river.
The area is mostly pedestrian, extremely picturesque, composed of cute narrow streets and tiny squares. During the day the quarter is usually crowded, as are the small grocery stores, local restaurants and fado houses. In the evening the human tide that visits the Castle vanish into other parts of town and the quarter turns to be very quiet and calm.
