About the property

Cozy 3 Bedroom Apartment for 9 guests in the old town.

This wonderful flat is located on the 3rd floor of a building from the 18th century, at Alfama one of the oldest parts of Lisbon.

It is decorated with a mixture of modern and ancient, and it is full of sunlight that you can enjoy from inside or relaxing in one of the 2 terraces, wile having a glance of the river, or seing the cats sleeping on the roofs of the medieval neighborhood.

This apartment is at Alfama, the medieval Moorish neighborhood where an emerging cosmopolitanism mixes with the “natives” day-to-day life. It is a village in the heart of the city, due to the fact that most of Alfama’s residents have lived here their entire lives and retain a strong sense of community.

The apartment has 110 square meters, and it has been recently renovated to include the following:

- Two bedrooms with double beds (140 cm wide), one of them with access to one of the terraces.

- One bedroom with two bunk beds.

- A living room with sofa with satellite TV and Hi-Fi and access to one of the terraces.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best place I have been staing. About 25 min walk to the center. Taxi is about 3,5€ to the center. Beach is not so near about 30 min walk and 40 min in train. Really good for friends having a good time. But I think it's even better for couples and families. Good restaurants right at the downstairs. No clubs nearby, so you can sleep your nights in peace. Also there is a small grocery store, about 5 min walk, almost on the other side of the fado museum.

Great location in an active neighborhood of Alfama.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location and layout of this apartment, and used the balcony for meals and to enjoy the views. Apartment was clean and bright, but amenities could be updated a little better, especially in the kitchen. The person who met us was helpful and gave great suggestions.

Alfama third floor walk up

  • 5 of 5

This is the real deal; narrow street with non descript door. A key unlocks the door and stairs lead up and up and up to the third floor.

When you arrive at the top to of the stairs, the apartment opens up to a living room with three sets of French doors to three different terraces facing the street. You are on the roof tops of Lisbon and are free to let your mind fly across to the other side of the river, up to the Miradouro at Santa Lucia, and take it all in - the famous light of Lisbon.

Windows off the kitchen and in the bathroom and three bedrooms, very spacious and open. What a gem this setting is.

Just the two of us, we had the windows open and took in the sound of the street below. Portugeuse, French, other languages spoken on the street below from tour groups from the cruise ships; dogs barking, children playing, women calling, dishes rattling from the restaurant at the corner. But we cannot call it a corner where two straight lines intersect, there are no corners in Alfama, every alley winds in a curve.

We were so tired at the end of each day walking up and down the hills of Lisbon, we did not care about the firmness of the mattress on the bed or how comfortable the furniture was, we were happy to be so close to the rail way stations, the Metro, the ferry boat landing and the trams. Happy to be in Alfama.

Every day we were on foot, on an adventure discovering the city of Lisbon, touring, walking, climbing, eating, drinking and enjoying this magical city. We dis this all on our own, no tour guide.

Upon our arrival, our apartment did not have a drip coffee maker and the property manager sent out for one to be purchased that day. The hot water was wonderful. The dishwasher was good to have and use. The washing machine was difficult to operate, but we figured it out. The close were hung on a line with clothespins to dry in the air. Refrigerator, freezer all clean and large. Shower with plenty of hot water.

We would recommend staying in this apartment. definitely.

  • 5 of 5

Appartment was really nice, well situated next (100mtrs) to the Fado museum. Easy acces to everything and service of Pedro and Alexandra wonderfull. Nice to have a washer/dryer you go home and within 10 minutes you are unpacked with everything clean.

The view is great especially from bedroom 1.

Next time surely travelling to lisbon again.

Muito muito obrigado!!

Este fin de año del 2006,...

  • 5 of 5

Este fin de año del 2006, hemos estado un grupo de amigos en el apartamento 37. La relación calidad-precio del apartamento es muy buena, asi como la limpieza y comodidad. Los propietarios han sido muy amables y han estado atentos por nuestro bienestar en todo momento. Total confianza para proximos viajes y recomendación por nuestra parte a nuestroa amigos. Un posible inconveniente que encontramos es que la mesa de la barra de la cocina no es suficientemente grande para comer todos los huespedes alli. No estaria nada mal equipar la casa con una mesa grande y sillas. See you!!
