About the property

2 bedroom apartment in old Moorish quarter with views over the river and the tow

Quality at low cost in a very picturesque neighbourhood!

Alfama 1 is located in the heart of old Lisbon, very close to the Castle and the Cathedral. It is the 4th and top floor of an old, no lift, narrow stairs building. The views of the town and the river are worth the climb, though!

The recently refurbished kitchen has a generous area and is well equipped, while the bedrooms and the living room (also refurbished) are small, yet comfortable, immaculate and cosy with their wooden ceilings and floors.

Alfama 1 is great quality for the price and perfect for travellers who are looking for an immersion into genuine, old Lisbon daily life.

Nice flat in great location

  • 4 of 5

This small flat is certainly adequate for a short stay in Lisbon. The location is perfect! The flat was very quiet and comfortable. Two reasons to not give it a "5" -- flat was very cold in February. Small space heaters were available, but only one worked. Also, the stairs would be a challenge for some. However, I would certainly stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan, I am glad you enjoyed your stay as it was a pleasure hosting you. I wish you had mentioned the heaters while you were at the flat so that we could solve it. Actually only one of the three heaters was not working. Mario

good flat in the historic centre of the city

  • 4 of 5

It is absolutely good flat for company or family of 3-4 persons. In winter it was little bit cold - we had to switch on the electric heaters. But I believe in the warm period it is not a problem. The kitchen is equiped enough. Very nice view from the both windows (to the river and to the city). It is not so good that in both bedrooms very small windows, but in general the flat is ok. Anyway staing there you have a chance to have a sensation of local resident of this part of the city.

Wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment! It is in an amazing location, right in the heart of the Alfama. Easy walking distance to stores, restaurants, cafes, and tourist sites (like the cathedral and castle). The best part about the location is just being in the Alfama and absorbing the lifestyle here. The apartment itself is clean, bright, and airy. One side has wonderful views of the river and the other side has great views of the Alfama quarter. Just be ready to walk up some steep stairs. Part of the charm!

Owner's Response: Thanks Joe! I am glad you enjoyed immersing in of the oldest and the most genuine quarter of Lisbon. Right, steep stairs, no cable TV, no hi-fi, but great price for a comfortable, clean, 2 bedroom flat with great views. Come back soon! Mario

Beste Lage in der Stadt, sauber, gemütlich

  • 5 of 5

Eine wirklich empfehlenswerte Wohnung! Sie liegt direkt im schönsten Stadtteil Lissabons (Alfama) und man kann jeden Abend die trad. Fado-Musik live, direkt um die Ecke miterleben. Kleine Supermärkte sind in der Nähe und die öffentl. Anbindung ist gut.

Es ist eine Dachgeschoßwohnung mit einer gut ausgestatteten Wohnküche, einem kleinen Bad, einem kleinen Aufenthalts-Durchgangsraum und zwei sehr kleinen Schlafzimmern (1xEtagenbett und 1xDoppelbett) mit winzigen Lüftungsfenstern, die ausreichend aber sind.

Die Sicht geht einmal direkt aufs Meer und bei der anderen Seite Richtung Castelo - wirklich schön. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältniss ist super und selbst unserer späte Anreise (22Uhr) sowie späte Abreise war überhaupt kein Problem. Gerne wieder!

Owner's Response: Thank you Dana! I am glad you enjoyed your stay and the apartment. No luxury, but for 4 people is cheaper then a hostel and it has everything you need (except wi-fi!) Soon again? Mario

Lisboa desde la Alfama

  • 4 of 5

Hemos pasado 4 días muy bonitos en Lisboa, el piso es muy cómodo, está muy bien equipado, y la ubicación es excelente.

No esta recomendado para personas que no puedan subir escaleras ya que esta en un atico sin ascensor.

Lo recomendamos ampliamente.

Estuvimos 8 dias en Lisboa y la ciudad muy bonita y muchos lugares interesantes para visitar, el barrio donde se encuentra el apartamento es muy pintoresco e interesante para visitar, muy cerca todo en general. En cuanto al apartamento muy completo en todo desde limpieza hasta utencilios de diario, se echa de menos más canales en la Tv y si fuera posible conexión a internet. Un gran inconveniente son las escaleras, pero se hace referencia a ello en la web. Pero en general muy bien. Su propietario una persona muy amable y atenta en todo momento.

Owner's Response: Muchas gracias Pepe por dejar su opinión y por sus amables palabras. Efectivamente, las escaleras (bien documentadas en las fotos!) son un aburrimiento, pero las vistas son un plus! La filosofía del piso es la de un piso low cost. Dos dormitorios por 50 euros en el centro de la ciudad no nos permiten poner TV por cable ni wi-fi. Pero, como dice, por lo demás el piso está bien equipado y ubicado en el barrio más pintoresco de Lisboa. Vuelva pronto, mario

The picturesque Alfama quarter is one of the oldest and most genuine districts of Lisbon.

The neighbourhood is as Portuguese as you can get but will remind you of a Kasbah (an inheritance of the Moorish presence in Lisbon, centuries ago), with its narrow streets and alleys full of life, local shops, restaurants, bars and authentic fado houses.
