Alfama Property

  • 2 of 5

The property is charming, however it is impossible to sleep in the front bedroom with the bunk beds as the extremely loud tram goes by right underneath the window every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day. The place really has space for no more than 3 people who can use the two back bedrooms. The water heater is housed in a tiny kitchen cabinet and holds no more than 3-4 gallons of hot water so be prepared for very cold showers. Basic sleeping and bathing arrangements are not comfortable and up to standard unfortunately.

Owner's Response: Dear future Guests, evaluations follow a certain logic. Many aspects play into it, aspects which have little to do with objective criteria. We are hosting guests with high standards for quite some time now. The average of more than 30 evaluations is close to 5 stars. This is the first one ever with only 2 stars, with only one other of only 3 stars. The majority goes with 5 and some other with 4. Every Host is once confronted with this kind of a grumpy shot which has little to do with factual standards of the Holiday Home and more with a general mood of the travellers and how happy they had been with their trip/holiday, in general (overnight transatlantic flights, mood among the travellering group, weather/heat/rain, probably a pocket thief, delayed flights, illness, etc etc.). When considering our apartment for your holidays, please just ask us in detail about all facilities and conditions mentioned in this evaluation, facilities which are also highlighted in other guests' evaluations - but with an exact opposed opinion :-). Every host also makes the experience at least once there are guests for Whom you simply cannot make it right, no matter your efforts and kindness. The intensity of previous correspondence, demands for extra offers, discounts & efforts, and adhoc booking alteration: we made it all possible. Above all, we had described conditions and facilities in detail, expressing our doubts before they decided to book our 3-bedroom appartment for 8 grown-up people (we recommend max 6 grown-up people, the max number of 8 is for 2 couples with small children, unless its for students and their very limited budgets). As experienced hosts we can only conclude that this group of guests was not ready to book a 4-5 bedroom appartment albeit a 3-bedroom does not meet your needs.

In the heart of the Alfama with many hills to climb!

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband, 10 and 13 year old boys, mom (78) and Father-in-law (80)) had a nice week in the apartment. Centrally located-near many restaurants and small bodegas. Beware, however, it is in an exceptionally hilly area, but there are taxis (cheap), tuk-tuks and the historic tram runs right under the windows of the apartment. Initially, the walking was difficult for the older folks, but we had it all figured out by the end. It was Fun to watch the tram run by when you are in the apartment. The apartment is well-appointed, although the showers are crazy. One day you would be forced to have a freezing shower- the next it would be super hot. I suppose this is a historic district and should be expected. There was plenty of room for us all. There is a washer AND dryer which is surprising in Europe and an added plus. I would recommend this apartment and think it was an exceptional value.

Family vacation in Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

My family (myself, husband, two kids ages 5 and 7 as well as my parents-in-law) enjoyed a great long weekend in the apartment in Lisbon. It was well appointed and comfortable for everyone. We appreciated the 3 bedrooms and the large kitchen and living room. My son especially loved the piano. The location is fantastic!

Relaxing for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

We booked the appartment accordingly to the needs and wishes of our family, as we went to Lisbon with three generations. The descriptions and pictures really match with the reality!

Albeit at the first floor, we were glad to be able counting on an elevator, as my parents are already a bit older. For the children (3 and 6 years old), we had found a true paradise, as the hosts have installed a cosy outdoor space for them to play.

The app is very clean, generously equipped and has a great atmosphere in the middle of an old part of town.

The hosts were extremely friendly, reliable and provided us with many hints.

The little restaurant "gato pardo" became our favorite place for dinners and we were amazed of the immediate surrounding, including the panorama cafes, the flee market, the famous Castle and the near-by playground.

We will certianly return, next time during summer!

Romantic and highly comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in Lisbon's historical part of town and very nicely decorated. The hosts are very kind and were extremely helpful.

The app is spacy (we had been 3 couples), very well taken care off, clean and perfectly equipped.

After long walking tours up-and-down the hills we really appreciated the living room and its sofas. And albeit travelling in January, we enjoyed the little terrace as well.

We can recommend the Rosa Residence unconditionally!

Perfect place to stay to really feel you are a part of Lisbon life

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights at this property, and if we had been in Lisbon longer, would have loved to have stayed here for a longer time. Travelling as a family with a 22 month old and 4 year old, this was absolutely the perfect place for us. The apartment was very comfortable and lovingly decorated, the beds were very comfortable, and there were plenty of toys for our children to enjoy. The location was so fantastic, we loved being in 'Old Portugal' and really felt like we were living like locals. The nearby places to eat were great and even let us take our coffees up to our apartment if we promised to return the glasses to them later! We walked all around the area and explored all kinds of quaint cobblestone streets. Coming home each day to this large, spacious apartment was the perfect way to live. Having a washer and dryer was so useful, and the water pressure in the shower was great(always important to me!). Our hosts were readily available via text whenever we needed anything, and so pleasant and friendly. Really truly we could not have picked a better place to stay for our time in Lisbon. Loved Lisbon, and loved this apartment. Perfect when travelling with children.
