Rio is a wonderful man who was so very accommodating to my friend and me even guiding us to the airp
Very impressed and well equipped.
Great way to experience the unique Alfama neighborhood.
Quietest apartment you could find. The Route 28 trolley line is just a few steps away but with no noise. A short walk up the hill is a neighborhood filled with cafes and stores but patronized mostly by locals. Don't miss the views from the monastery and museum 2 blocks away (Sao Vincente da Fora). The Saturday and Tuesday flea market is just behind it as well.
Stayed here in February, some cool nights but heat worked great (many Lisbon apartments are not heated). Not sure if unit has air conditioning.
Would not recommend trying to reach the apartment by public transportation with luggage.
Host Rui is wonderful, incredibly responsive, helpful and concerned.
Location is feature deep in heat of alfama
Nice small apartment - building is quite new with both security doors building and front. The downside was no A/C.
Lovely Apartment, Amazing Host!
The apartment was wonderful, fully equipped just as the pictures indicate, with one exception, the one bedroom that looks like it has a twin bed actually has a king size bed in it, the host Ruyi, was amazing, so nice and thoughful, he even picked us up from the airport and helped us with our bags, he sat down with us and went over the local area map, how to run things at the apartment etc. then he drove us to the bus depot when we checked out to go to our next destination, I would definitely recommend this place and this host to everyone!
Thanks again Ruyi!!!
Stylish and wonderfully located apartment with a very attentive host.
We loved our stay and Rui was fantastic. He collected us from the airport and then, when we were stranded by Monarch, he gladly changed his plans to accommodate ours. The apartment is really well equipped with everything you could need for a short or even long stay.
Limpo, janelas a prova de som, bairro legal e tradicional. Vizinhança segura. Apartamento bem limpo.
Cozinha completa, bem decorado, excelente Recepçao pelo Rui. Pode reservar!
Fico feliz que tenha apreciado a sua estadia no apartamento e a visita a Lisboa. Rui.
Alfama is the oldest and one of the most typical neighborhoods of Lisbon. The best way to know is to lose yourself in the narrow streets of cobblestone, and courtyards connected by numerous stairs going from the hill of the Castle of São Jorge to the Tagus River, where neighbors meet and talk from door to door.
There are typical grocery stores, patios, restaurants and taverns that line the streets in the summer with tables and cook sardines on the streets.
Near the National Pantheon, in the Campo de Santa Clara, lies the oldest market of Lisbon, the famous flea market. Every Tuesday and Saturday, from sunrise to sunrise, traders display their products on tables, tents or cloth over the floor, where they sell books, clothes, old records, shoes, photos and whatever your mind can imagine.
Just 20 meters from the apartment we find the electric stop 28 - the most typical transport of Lisbon. Come and enjoy a journey through the historical bairrros Lisbon.
You are also very close to the Fado and Portuguese guitar Museum: Situated at Largo do Chafariz de Dentro. It is a place where you can have a historical visit through the more traditionally Portuguese music Fado. There you can listen to songs of famous singers like Amalia Rodrigues, Carlos do Carmo and Mariza.
