Overview

About the property

1 Double Bed, 1 Double Sofa-Bed. Sleeps up to 4 people

COMPLIMENTARY PICK UP FROM LISBON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

Situated in the heart of Lisbon’s most characteristic Old Quarter, just 100 metres from the renowned Fado Museum, this modern 1 bedroom apartment at Alfama is located on the 1st floor of a building totally refurbished in 2012. Tastefully decorated, the apartment can comfortably accommodate 4 guests.

• LCD TV, national and international cable channels, free wireless internet.

• Bedroom with 1 double bed and 1 double sofa bed in the living room. Dining table with 4 seats.

• Kitchen fully equipped with smoke extractor, hob and oven, cooking utensils, washing machine, hot water cylinder, fridge, freezer, microwave, toaster, nespresso coffee machine, hair dryer, iron and board.

Alfama is the oldest and most traditional of Lisbon’s neighbourhoods. Its existence can be traced back to the period of Moorish domination from the 8th century onwards. Its name comes from the Arabic Al-hamma, meaning fountains or baths and referring to the numerous water sources that used to exist and feed various fountains.

Spreading along the south east slope that descends from the mediaeval São Jorge Castle, meeting with the River Tejo and just 10 minutes walking from the apartment, we are able to find some of the most important touristy sites and monuments that Lisbon has to offer. These include Sé Patriarcal de Lisboa, Lisbon’s Cathedral and oldest church dating back to 1147 and also seat of The Archdiocese, The Monastery of São Vicente de Fora which, is a 17th century, mannerist styled masterpiece, The National Pantheon, where some of Portugal’s most important historical characters are buried or The National Museum of Fado. Other notable places of interest are The Casa dos Bicos, famous for its Gothic Architecture from the 16th century and Nobel Prize winner José de Sousa Saramago’s Foundation Headquarters, Terreiro do Paço, the royal residence from the 16th century until the 18th or the flea market known as Feira da Ladra or 'Thieves' Market'.

Alfama is also one of the old neighbourhoods where Fado runs through the blood of its people. As the purest expression of the soul and the feelings of the Portuguese, Fado can and should be enjoyed in the many restaurants and bars everywhere or simply heard through an open window in a private house.

There are several ways to discover the secrets of Alfama. Walking calmly through its picturesque labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares or taking a ride on the famous number 28 tram are two of the most enjoyable. And the breathtaking views from Santa Luzia and Portas do Sol overlooking Lisbon and The Tejo River should not be missed.

Today, Alfama is a vibrant neighbourhood with its recovered architectural heritage that combines history with a cosmopolitan feel, offering a variety of restaurants, bars and craft shops that will delight those who visit us.

Welcome to Alfama.

What makes this apartment unique

COMPLIMENTARY PICK UP FROM LISBON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Really good service from Paolo, including airport pick-up late evening. The location is in the very heart of Alfama,- cant be better! Note, that there is no car traffic in the lane, but some chat from vendors and by-passing tourists. The flat is small but charming and perfect for two adults!



We will definitely be back some time!

Wonderful time in Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We (parents with one daughter) stayed for one week in the apartment of Paulo.

He picked us up from the airport, was very friendly and helpful. During our stay he asked if everything was okay and if we need something. The apartment was clean, it was well-maintained and the location of the apartment was perfect. We walked to the main attractions for a few minutes, but the Metro station was also near to reach parts of Lisbon which were too far away for walking. We would recommend this property to our friends or relatives and we hope we'll come back again some day. Thank you Paulo for all!

Attractive, conveniently located apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is ideally located in Lisbon's most charming and unique quarter -- Alfama. The apartment is exactly as depicted with everything a guest might need for an enjoyable holiday. Furthermore, it is ideally situated close to the city centre, numerous restaurants and clubs and a short walk to the railway station handy for day trips outside of Lisbon. Having previously rented apartments in other cities, we were amazed by Paulo, the owner of the apartment, who was by far the most attentive host. He picked us up at the airport, gave us a tour of the city, inspired us with his enthusiasm for all things Portuguese, and was available at all times to answer questions, make recommendations and to replenish any supplies we may need.

Owner's Response: I'm the one that have to thank you for all the kindness, simpathy and this amazing sweet words. It was indeed my great pleasure and honour to welcome you in Lisboa during your 4 weeks stay. And because a small part of it turned out to be already booked before, you were able to stay for 3 nights at another of my properties in a different historical downtown district. I have to also thank you for your flexibility on this, though it allowed you to experience two very different aspects of Lisboa. I was delighted to see that you'd put so much effort in the preparation of your trip to Lisboa and a real interest in discover the most about our history and art/architecture treasures but also a deep concern in knowing furthermore about our daily life, actual worries and future expectations as a country. Our chats were fantastic, the challenge was always delightful and i'll surely miss them. I sincerely hope to meet you two again. In Lisboa or Ottawa.

Très bon emplacement

  • 4 of 5

Très bon emplacement à deux pas du Musé Fado.

le propriétaire est très gentil, il parle français et il vient nous chercher à l'aéroport et il peut également nous reconduire.

L'appartement est conforme aux photos et à la description.

Seul inconvénient, il y a juste un peu de bruit le soir jusqu'à minuit.

Awesome stay at Alfama28

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 nights in late November at Alfama28 (ignore the January check-in date generated by the system) and I absolutely loved it! The owner, Paulo, picked me up at the airport and transferred me straight to the apartment for no charge which was much appreciated. The apartment is in the oldest part of Lisbon very near many shops, restaurants, and bars. I knew I was in the right place when I saw all the guided walking tours going by the apartment. The apartment is well maintained, modern, and very clean. I enjoyed the many nearby restaurants with traditional Fado music. Walking to other parts of downtown Lisbon was a breeze and not very far. Paulo had so many great suggestions about things to do that he sent in an email I would never had time to get to all of them. Paulo also sent me tons of recommendations for things to do and see in Porto! I can't say enough how much I enjoyed staying here and about all the great assistance I received from Paulo. It made my trip much more enjoyable than had I stayed at a big hotel. I would definitely recommend a stay here and I give it five stars.

Owner's Response: I'm delighted to know that you're keeping such a good memories about your stay in Lisboa but i also have to admit that i'm immensely happy to know that our Alfama apartment was such an important part of it. It was a true pleasure to have had the chance to receive you and tried to give you as much as possible information so you could take the most out of your stay, both in Lisboa and in the north, but everything's much more easy with guests like you that already have the sincere desire of going far beyond the mere tour guide. Thank you so much for choosing our apartment, tons of good vibs for 2018 and hope to meet you again soon, no matter if in Lisboa or in Washington.

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Terrific location in a narrow street in old Alfama. The stairs up to the flat are steep so not good for anyone with mobility isssues.

Paulo met us at the airport and was charming and full of useful information. A more congenial host I cannot imagine. We hope to visit Lisbon again and would hope to stay at Paulo’s apartment again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. I'm so happy that you'd love your stay at our apartment and in Lisboa. I'm sure that the fantastic blue sky and sunny weather you got in this early winter also contributed for your positive feelings and i'm really looking forward to welcome you again in a near future.

Situated in the heart of Lisbon’s most characteristic Old Quarter, just 100 metres from the renowned Fado Museum at Alfama, this modern 1 bedroom apartment is located on the 1st floor of a building totally refurbished in 2012. Tastefully decorated, the apartment can comfortably accommodate 4 guests.

The entrance stairs are a bit steepy, not suitable for people with reduced mobility.

By default, check-in is from 3pm and checkout by 10am but, if possible, we'll try to be flexible.
