Right in the alfama district!
We had a wonderful week! Rui is so efficient- the location was perfect for us. We were right on the bus and tram routes and walked to the train when we needed to. 2 bedrooms downstairs, 1 of the bathrooms was upstairs which worked well. Thanks Rui!
Great stay at Rui's in Alfama, Lisbon!
Rui picked us up from the airport on time, and with a very happy introduction. He took us to his unique and comfortable apt. in the old part of town. Rui was very informative and extremely organized. He told us about Lisbon, and gave us tips of what to see and how to go about our 3 day tour. He picked us up at the apartment and whisked us back to the airport where we were renting a car, showing us how to exit Lisbon, etc. I cannot thank him enough for his wonderful help and cheery attitude.
Rui has a wonderful clean place. His attention to every detail was impressive. Getting picked up and dropped off at the airport, the nice welcome basket and all of the extras were wonderful. His information about the area was truly helpful. Thanks for s great experience. Pam and Monrud
The apartment is really great, in a perfect location in Alfama. Rui is the best- he picked us up at the airport and made us feel welcome and oriented to the apartment and the area. The apartment has everything you need and is thoughtfully put together. Thank you for everything, Rui. Portugal is wonderful!
Great place to stay in Alfama
It was perfect size and arrangement for my wife and I and our grandchildren 12 and 14. Very good location in the Alfama area, short walk to the Tram 28 stop by St Vincent Church, a small market right around the corner. Rui picked us up and dropped us off at the airport and gave us an overview of the area and provided maps when we checked in. Very helpful and friendly!
Rui (the owner) was a pleasure to deal with. He was very friendly and helpful. The home was nicely equipped and worked well for our family of 5. Driving through the streets of Alfama and near by parking could be a challenge, but if you wish to stay in Alfama, this home is a great choice. Apartment does not have central A/C but is was a fan in each bedroom.
Alfama is the oldest and one of the most typical neighborhoods of Lisbon. The best way to know is to lose yourself in the narrow streets of cobblestone, and courtyards connected by numerous stairs going from the hill of the Castle of São Jorge to the Tagus River, where neighbors meet and talk from door to door.
There are typical grocery stores, patios, restaurants and taverns that line the streets in the summer with tables and cook sardines on the streets.
Near the National Pantheon, in the Campo de Santa Clara, lies the oldest market of Lisbon, the famous flea market. Every Tuesday and Saturday, from sunrise to sunrise, traders display their products on tables, tents or cloth over the floor, where they sell books, clothes, old records, shoes, photos and whatever your mind can imagine.
Just 20 meters from the apartment we find the electric stop 28 - the most typical transport of Lisbon. Come and enjoy a journey through the historical bairrros Lisbon.
You are also very close to the Fado and Portuguese guitar Museum: Situated at Largo do Chafariz de Dentro. It is a place where you can have a historical visit through the more traditionally Portuguese music Fado. There you can listen to songs of famous singers like Amalia Rodrigues, Carlos do Carmo and Mariza.
