Loved the neighborhood— lots of restaurants, fado, shopping, views and museums. Would definitely stay here again. The owner was very helpful and greeted us warmly. Lisbon is a great city to visit!

Great location, very comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

The location couldn't be beat - a short walk to the metro line and just down the hill from the castle. Be warned though, it is a bit of a steep walk up to the apartment but that is typical of Alfama, a fascinating area of Lisbon. We did get used to it and it was convenient to restaurants and a lovely little coffee bar, Alfama Doce, for breakfast. Our host Nuno, met us at the Fado Museum and oriented us to the apartment and offered some excellent suggestions for activities and local restaurants. The apartment is spotless and the kitchen was well equipped for those that might be inspired to cook (although there were many good nearby restaurants).

Perfect location for experiencing Lisbon

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this apartment tucked into the heart of the oldest neighbourhood in Lisbon. It served as a great home base for heading out every day to explore the city. Each day was a new adventure. We would step out the front door and walk everywhere, returning in the afternoon to enjoy the peacefulness of a typical neighbourhood going about its regular business. The apartment is centrally located and only a short walk away from the metro, train station and a supermercado. The Portas do Sol viewpoint and the São Jorge Castle are just up the hill and we could be downtown in 15 minutes. Lots of restaurants and shops and cafes in Alfama. Definitely visit the Pastelaria Alfama Doce a few doors down the street for their delicious pastries.

We particularly appreciated the warm hospitality of Nuno, Helena and their family. Nuno provided us with suggestions for restaurants and places to visit, and they went out of their way to invite us to a traditional Portuguese Christmas Eve dinner at their home. A very special and enjoyable evening with very special hosts. Thank you!

The apartment was clean and the kitchen had all the basics for preparing breakfasts and light meals. We were there for three weeks over Christmas and there was ample room for two people. As noted by others, the bathroom is very small, but clean and functional.

We will always have fond memories of our stay in Alfama, and would definitely return to this apartment.

A wonderful choice for a stay in Lisbon!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment on a quiet, winding pedestrian street in Alfama -- a fabulous location! Nuno is a very helpful and attentive host. The apartment is small, but uses all space efficiently and is well equipped. Both bedrooms are comfortable. Would probably be hot in the summer, but that is the only caution we would note. Through the window come pealing church bells on Sunday morning, the echoing sounds of fado from the cafes in the evening. There are certainly tourists around but the area feels very authentic and "real." Little shops and restaurants are sprinkled throughout Alfama -- which one could wander in endlessly -- and transportation to all parts of the city is easily accessed. We are so glad that we chose 5 Steps House. Thank you, Nuno!

Nice property: everything as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Property was in a great location, had all the amenities that we needed. Plenty of restaurants in the area and not far from all forms of transportation. We explored the surrounding area mostly on foot and really enjoyed Lisbon and what it has to offer.

Nuno was a gracious host and went out of his way to make sure we had all the information we needed to explore Lisbon and the surrounding area. Communication via email and text was prompt.

The apartment layout was good for 2 people and the master bedroom was quiet and spacious. Others noted that the bathroom is small which is true but it was OK for us.

We do not hesitate to recommend this property.

Car: not necessary

You are just 5 minutes away from all that is important in the most historic part of Lisbon, on the hill of the São Jorge Castle, the birthplace of the beautiful city of Lisbon. Less than 5 minutes walk from the city center, a few meters from "Belvedere Portas do Sol ', the' Castle of St. George ', the' Pantheon ', the' Fado Museum ', the' Military Museum ', the' Flea Market ", all kinds of public transport, shops, cafes, typical restaurants, fado houses, bars, art galleries, craft shops ...

If you want to do a different program and 'escape' Lisbon do not forget that you have the magnificent beaches of Costa da Caparica, crossing the bridge on April 25 to the other side of the Tagus River, or the beaches of the picturesque village of Cascais or the indomitable Guincho beach, a favorite with surfers and any lover of water sports. Everything about 30 minutes by private car or even making use of public transport. Do not forget also the possibility to visit the magnificent town of Sintra, classified as World Heritage by UNESCO, all her magic and full of splendor - a romantic realm where majestic palaces, a castle of fairy tales, royal properties and fascinating mansions emerge in the middle hills and lush forests.

Alfama is a historic district que Maintains much of the character and neighborhood life it has had for centuries. Stroll around the narrow streets and alleys and find out for yourself. The house is right in the heart of it. Near lies St. Stephen's Church, with its beautiful viewpoint overlooking the river and the old city rooftops.

The streets around the house are dotted with small groceries where you can buy much of the food you need- cafes, small restaurants and, of course, some of the most famous Fado houses in town. The Fado Museum is Also nearby, as is the National Pantheon and Lisbon's flea market (Tuesdays and Saturdays).

This cozy apartment is 7 minutes walk from Lisbon's main railway station (Santa Apolonia) Which Also Has a subway station que connects to the airport Within less than 40 min. Coming from the airport by taxi shouldnt take no more than 15 min.

There are two secure car parks (one open air and one covered auto silo) Within a short walk from the house.

The house location makes it a perfect base for exploring Lisbon city center: 5 minutes walk from the famous 28 tram line; 10 minutes walk from downtown (Low); 15 minutes walk from the Castle; and 5 minutes walk from the subway station connecting to other city highlights
