Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We picked Carlo's apartment because it was in the middle of the Alfama, and it's close proximity to the port. Carlos was so helpful by picking us up at the airport, as it was dark by the time our flight arrived and we have never been to Lisbon before.

The apartment had everything we needed, along with a few unexpected extras such as bottles of water and a bottle of wine. It was a perfect place to recuperate from a long flight from the U.S., and explore Lisbon for a few days before our cruise.

The guide books are correct, maps and internet directions are not always accurate in the maze of Alfama. Getting lost is part of the charm. Enjoy! You can always head downhill to reach the river and port.

Thank you so much for your hospitality, Carlos! Muite Obrigada!

Live like a local

  • 4 of 5

Living on this narrow pedestrian street in Alfama was a great experience. We waved to our neighbour and hung our washing out to dry. The narrow winding streets were fun to explore and it was easy to get down to the water or up to the Castle. We did not actually ride the No. 28 Tram but it is very easy to get to using the public elevator a few doors along the street. The kitchen is well equipped and we made use of the clothes washer and dishwasher.

Great apartment, perfect location in Lisbon and the best host you can imagine

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Lisbon was perfect. Apartment is lovely, clean, and fully equipped (including a bottle of Portuguese wine!), location perfect (we could listen to Fado through the window), and host just beyond the words! He treated us like friends or family. He drove us from the airport, shared with us all important facts about neighborhood (groceries, restaurants, elevator, etc.) and was in touch all the time. He even offered and took us back to the airport since, as he said, he was driving the same direction. Carlos, thank you so much! We really hope to visit Lisbon and stay at your apartment again.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely, and Carlos couldn't be nicer. Everything was provided, and the apartment was extremely well equipped. We only stayed a couple of days, but wish it was longer. The area is fantastic, so much to see. Very central, and close to many restaurants and of course the Fado bars. Ca't recommend enough. I will certainly return. Thanks, Carlos.

Fabulous Location and delightful owner

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed in delightful Carlos's lovely apartment. It was a wonderful to be in a neighborhood instead of tourist hotels. It is just a short hill climb to all the magnificent views, the castle and the infamous tram 28 which was a highlight to us. Great kitchen, good internet, nice small bathroom. It is only up one flight from the street but steep stairs. (very doable for me at 70 years old). We hung our wash out the window along with the rest of the neighbours. It is a pedestrian only street so also hanging out the window seeing people and dogs go by let you peek in at Lisbon's normal life. Make sure you find the little elevator that takes you to street level. When you leave the apartment, turning left and than soon there is a doorway left to the elevator. I highly recommend, the owner was so courteous and felt like a friend.
