Nice little apartment in a fabulous location
This is a great little jewel in a fantastic location. Tram 28 runs on the street below for those interested in taking it. We walked to the main part of town (Rossio Square) every day and although it would be a challenging walk for those with mobility issues, we enjoyed it. Lots of little gems of restaurants and bars close by the apartment . If arriving by bus or plane, a taxi will take you right there. There is also an elevator that will take you down several flights of stairs but it closes before 10pm. We lucked into a wonderful Fado show on our way back from Rossio Square one evening at La Chipita. There is a great little bakery down the street had tasty pastels, there was a port tasting spot also on that walk - we found great shortcuts and really enjoyed the street art. I can't say enough about the location.
The rooms were comfortable and the apartment has everything you need - washing machine/dishwasher/TV, etc. We cooked breakfast most mornings but with the variety of restaurants available and everything to see in the city, we weren't home much.
The owners answered all my questions before I came, usually by the next day due to time difference between Canada and Portugal and there was someone there to meet us when we arrived.
The only cons were that noise carries so we could hear the upstairs neighbours TV/walking and a dog barking at times. I'm very noise sensitive but still enjoyed the apartment. Also, the stairs up to the apartment are very, very steep. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who has trouble negotiating stairs (same with the location as you do have to navigate hills to get here - especially if you are relying on the metro).
All in all, if you want to experience what a gorgeous city this it, this is a hidden treasure.
Unfortunately we were robbed on the first day on the tram. This has spoilt the whole experience for us and we left a day early. Of course this had nothing to do with the owners or the apartment. We thought the old town area was lovely. The apartment needs some tlc. One the keys didn’t fit so we had to disturb the neighbour to let us in. Chair collapsing, tv stand bending, settee not very comfortable.
Great stay in modern apartment in historic Lisbon!
Modern, comfortable apartment located in historic and central location. Looking at the outside, one would not know of the modern apartment that lies up the stairs of this historic building. From this central location, we were able to easily access the sights of beautiful and historic Lisbon and Sintra. The sunsets at Portas Do Sol were breathtaking and also a quick walk from the apartment. The recommendations and bottle of wine were also appreciated!
Ideal centre to explore Lisbon from.
This well equipped flat had all that was required for a holiday in Lisbon. It was ideally located, in easy reach of the 12 & 28 trams and several nice restaurants. The dining recommendations from the owners could not be faulted. I had pre-arranged a pick-up from the airport with the owners, this worked well and provided a door to door service - good job as it was a very hot day (37c). We were met by Luis who showed us round the flat and explained the local places to go and what tickets were worth buying for sightseeing. Antonio and Fabiola were prompt in answering any queries both prior to us arriving and also during our stay. Overall, a nice venue to have as a base for staying in Lisbon.
Apartment by the Castle
We enjoyed our time here in Alfama in the heart of the historic district of Lisbon. It was easy to use the trams, metro and busses to get around to other places. The apartment is well equipped and tastefully furnished and decorated.
