|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
The perfect place for your short break in the city. Here you will live in a genuine typical Lisbon quarter, with its' more than 30 Fado restaurants. But also you will be near the Center City, the extravagant "Bairro Alto" and near to the main public transports (Metro, train, bus, and the typical tramway). You will be five minutes walk from Santa Apolónia railway station (Porto, Coimbra, Algarve) and 10 minutes from Cais do Sodré railway station (that accesses to the fabulous Cascais/ Estoril beaches).
This is the perfect option if you want to get passionate by Lisbon's typical way of living: its' charming corners, the Tagus river, its' "miradouros", its' unique light, its' iconic shops.The apartment is located in the centre of this typical quarter but in a very quiet place. Be aware that Alfama being an historical quarter is closed to private car so we do not advise renting a car.
This apartment is the ideal choice to accommodate four persons with complete intimacy because these two charming rooms are separated by a cozy dinning room and the apartment has two separated bathrooms. It must be enhanced that there are two similar apartments in the same building (first and second floor).As such a group of eight people (ex. four couples) can be together in these charming apartments in completely independent rooms with intimacy in “their own hotel”.
The apartment is well equipped (kitchen with Nespresso machine, refrigerator, microwave), Led TV with over 100 channels, Internet WiFi etc.

What a great stay in Lisbon we had!
We had a warm welcome by Nuno, who picked us up at the metro station for a walk to the apartment. Situated in the heart of Alfama, this place is perfect for your stay. Alfama is a lovely, unique and authentic neighborhood. The apartment's clean, stylish, cosy, with everything you need, incl good working wifi and a well equipped kitchen.
Nuno gave us a quick orientation of the area and a short guided tour of the neighborhood. But then anyway, when you visit Alfama, you WILL get lost for some time, but that's part of the fun. Nuno was always reachable if something was needed.
Until 2 at night, the neighborhood was quite noisy, but mostly charming noise: fado singers, applause, talking outside… If you don't want to hear that, you can close the windows, of course.
The apartment is very well located to visit the other Lisbon areas. The famous tram 28 is a few steps away and will take you through Lisbon. Or you can take a tour with a Tuktuk, all very close by. Or you can walk, what we mostly did. All thumbs up from us!!!
We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment in Alfama. It was a great location, close enough to walk to the local square without being right in the middle of everything. We did notice that the listing said it was in a quiet area, but both nights we had people talking pretty loudly right outside our window until about 1am. We had to leave the windows open at night because there is no A/C, so we were tossing and turning trying to get to sleep with all the noise. After 1am it calmed down a bit, though!
The other thing is that you need to make sure, if you're getting a taxi from the airport or train station, that you have both cross-streets. We only had the address, and our taxi driver wasn't familiar with the old city. He dropped us off at the top of the hill with all our luggage and said he wasn't driving any further. He pointed us in a general direction, but we ended up having to walk up and down the big hills with all our luggage. No one we asked knew the tiny street the apartment was on. We finally found it when my husband found wifi and could pull up Google Maps, but it really would have helped to have both cross streets so our taxi could have made it all the way there, or at least someone would have know how to point us in the right direction.
But all in all, the apartment is nice and clean, and in a good location.
We stayed in this comfortable apartment for our stay in Lisbon. The location in the Alfama neighborhood with its winding streets, beautiful views and good restaurants was perfect for us. The apartment's owner was a gracious host, offering excellent recommendations on where to eat and how to enjoy the neighborhood and Lisbon. The apartment was well outfitted, quiet and centrally located within Alfama. Easy to get around on public transportation and on foot. We would definitely return.
Appartement proposé pour 4 personnes avec 2 chambres et 2 salles de bains .
Equipement de la cuisine nettement insuffisant pour 4 personnes . A notre arrivée , le samedi, pas de machine à café , seulement 2 grandes tasses , 1 mini casserolle , pas de saladier ... Impossible de prendre le petit déjeuner et le dîner à l'appartement .
Cependant , NINO, courtois, s'est démontré très réactif et nous a apporté ,le lundi , le nécessaire pour déjeuner tous les quatre !
Une des chambres est vraiment très petite , sans lampe de chevet avec un placard pas du tout aménagé pour ranger les vêtements . (Placard négligé servant de débarras pour aspirateur, escabeau, planches et le tout désordonné ...)
Une des salles d'eau est très exigue et dans l'autre les WC étaient en panne . NINO est aussi intervenu , le mardi, pour procéder à la réparation .
La puissance électrique est nettement insuffisante entrainant dijonction très fréquente lors de l'utilisation de cafetière , plaque de cuisson ou sèche-cheveux !
Sommes déçus de cette location et nous pouvons signifier que l'état des lieux et le ménage ne sont pas réalisés minutieusement après chaque location .
Nous ne conseillons pas ce logement insuffisamment aménagé pour 4 personnes .
La casa è situata nel cuore dell'Alfama fornendo la possibilità di raggiungere Piazza del commercio a piedi o approfittare del tram 28 e della stazione di S. Apollonia; per lo stesso motivo, essendo in un vicoletto caratteristico, è un po'complicato da trovare la prima volta, fortunatamente il padrone di casa è molto disponibile se contattato e vi aiuterà (fornendovi inoltre moltissime informazioni utili sugli spostamenti, le attrazioni principali e i locali). La casa è molto carina e caratteristica, dotata di due stanze e due bagni, cucina e sala da pranzo. Pur essendo in una zona molto vissuta non c'è molto caos la notte; provvista di tutto l'occorrente, è da consigliare per chi vuole soggiornare nel cuore della vera Lisbona.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour à Lisbonne et dans cet appartement situé au coeur de l'ALFAMA : De nombreux petits restos autour et le tram 28 à deux pas. Nous avons ainsi pu profiter des soirées dans la ville. L'appartement est très lumineux. La literie est confortable. Le propriétaire est très sympathique et nous a donné de nombreuses informations sur les visites et les transports. Nous conseillons cette location sans problème.
