Perfect Stay in Alfama

  • 5 of 5

Carlos was an absolutely fantastic host - he offered to pick us up from the airport, and when we told him that we were already going to be in Lisbon by the time that we needed the apartment, he picked us up from the hotel we were staying at. He showed us around the city on our way to the apartment, and gave us absolutely everything we needed. The apartment itself is lovely, a small little space smack in the middle of Alfama. We barely spent 5 euros on public transportation because we simply walked EVERYWHERE we wanted to go! Carlos gave us great recommendations on food and fun, and all in all our trip was made infinitely better by staying in this HomeAway. HIGHLY recommended - *when* we come back to Lisbon, we will certainly stay here again! Thank you, Carlos!!!

Charm, Romance, and Comfort in the Best Lisbon Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This flat is perfectly suited for a couple or 2 friends. If you are American, you may not realize that this is not a ground floor flat. Floor 1 in Europe is what Americans call the second floor. The other important caveat to the apartment's floor 1 location is that the street is merely a pedestrian path, so you need not be concerned about traffic noise or passersby at window level. The apartment can be made very dark and quiet by closing the heavy wooden shutters over the large windows, as shown in the Living Room photo. Also note in that photo the nook to the right of the window, where you can store your luggage out of the way. The bedroom is small but of adequate size to accommodate the double bed (with crisp, white linens), free-standing wardrobe with many wooden hangers, and small bedside table with lamp. The bedroom can be closed off from the main room (though there is no window in the bedroom, so doing that will make the bedroom hot.) If you don't think you will be comfortable in a double bed (I actually measured it because it seemed more spacious than the standard double that it is), you also have the option of the sleep sofa, which is much larger. There is ample lighting throughout the apartment. You can read in bed or while sitting on the sofa. The corridor kitchen is fully equipped, and the small table and chairs for dining are visible in the Living Room photo. I can't imagine cooking or dining in, however, considering the many authentic Portuguese restaurants in the Alfama neighborhood -- starting just a few steps from the building (try Tu E Eu, for example) -- a walk among which will treat you to wafts of Fado music. Aside from all of the expected, and some unexpected, major appliances, there is an electric coffee maker and an electric tea kettle, and some coffee and tea are provided. I made coffee the first couple of days, but later I just waited for the wonderful coffee in the neighborhood. The bathroom has everything you expect -- all new and well functioning -- but keep in mind that it is very tiny -- particularly the shower, so this is perhaps not the best rental for very large people. Also keep in mind that accessing the apartment requires climbing several stairs. Hopefully, you already realize that being able bodied is necessary for a successful stay in Alfama. Though Carlos stresses that there is no view from the apartment itself, you can see the river by just stepping outside, and the Miradouro is a short elevator ride away.

A Wonderful Stay in Lisbon!

  • 5 of 5

Carlos provided a warm and generous welcome by picking us up at the airport and providing many recommendations. The apartment was well stocked and very clean. The Internet connection and desktop computer were both very good. The Alfama neighbourhood proved to be a wonderful place to explore. If we find ourselves planning another trip to Lisbon, we will not hesitate to contact Carlos again!

Amazing reception!

  • 5 of 5

We were received like old friends! Carlos picked us up from the train station, helped us with the suitcases and after a brief orientation at the apt, he took the time to drive us around the area to help us get familiarized. The appartment is very well located - we walked almost everywhere.

It is not very big, but very functional and very clean. Carlos' attention to every detail made our stay very smooth and comfortable: a bottle of wine upon arrival, crispy-clean sheets, plenty of towels, even candles! Everything you need is there!

For our departure at 4 am, Carlos offered to book a taxi. As luck would have it, the taxi drivers went on strike the day before and it wasn't possible to book. So, Carlos actually drove us to the airport at 4 in the morning; what a generous person he is!!! Thank-you again, Carlos, for your amazing hospitality!!!

great location and host

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location for exploring Lisbon.

Carlos was a great host and was available to assist during our entire stay.

It was a big help to us when he picked us up at the airport and gave us a quick tour of the city before he dropped us off at the apartment.

Perfect Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

My teenage daughter and I had a great holiday in this wonderful apartment which was perfectly located in Alfama. The apartment is located within walking distance of many beautiful attractions, including Tram 28 which was a fun experience. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. It included all the necessary appliances. I actually realized that I had overpacked as I was able to easily launder my clothing throughout the week. Towels, bed linens and Wi-Fi were an extra bonus.

Carlos was an excellent host and was available to answer any questions I had. He went above and beyond my expectations with his customer service. I would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family. I felt very safe in my location and while travelling throughout Alfama with my daughter. We experienced great restaurants that Carlos recommended, enjoyed our ride on Tram 28 and found the transit system very easy to use. We enjoyed celebrating Portugal's EUFA victories during our stay! Looking forward to returning to Portugal and would love to stay at Carlos' place again.

The apartment is located at less than 100 meters from Portas do Sol and Santa Luzia viewpoints, where you can enjoy a magnificent view over Alfama and the Tagus river. At a distance of 300 meters it is possible to visit the Castle of São Jorge or, on the opposite direction, the Fado Museum. With a 10 min walk it is possible to reach the Baixa, passing by the Lisbon Cathedral. Restaurants with live fado (dinner) abound, but if you prefer to cook, you can find everything you need in one of the numerous grocery stores in Alfama.
