Amazing views over the river, and in a perfect place in the Alfama for exploring the city. Close to Santa Apolonia metro station. Lots of local restaurants and bars - we had a great evening in the tapas jazz bar about 3 mins walk from the apartment. Also several convenient mini-markets for food shopping are very close by. We walked a great deal, and enjoyed exploring this fabulous district, and beyond. Castelo de Sao Jorge is close by and well worth a visit, even in the rain! Although the weather was rather mixed over our weekend stay, we would definitely recommend this apartment and stay again.

It is in the old Alfama district which is very atmospheric with winding streets and little resturants and bars tucked into corners. There is a bakery just 2 minutes away and a small store opposite which provides some basics. Paulo was very helpful and easy to communicate with prior to our stay and we were picked up from Lisbon airport by his son on our arrival which was a great help and he was full of really useful information about what to see in Lisbon. The apartment has absolutely everything you would need (including a great shower!) and feels very secure - but its worth noting that the street outside could get noisy on Friday and Saturday evenings. Lisbon is a wonderful place with so much character and I can highly recommend this apartment and the surroundings of Alfama.
