Fantastic apartment in a good location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this spacious apartment for 4 nights at the beginning of the month. There were three of us and so separate bedrooms were all clean and very comfortable. The apartment was at the top of very steep stairs but we soon got use to that. The Alfama district is also steep but a great base for exploring Lisbon. We had a welcome pack and the kitchen was very well equipped, and although we were a little late arriving we received a warm welcome. There is a lot to see and do in Lisbon, but beware when on the trolley tram which stops outside the apartment as we had money and a phone stolen from a rucksack. We would definitely return to Carla's apartment.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying in your apartment. Close proximity to some great restaurants (would highly recommend Restaurante Refugio do Ciclista), and major attractions. Only down side was the back bedroom bed needs to be upgraded. Would definitely stay again!

An oasis of calm in the bustling Alfama district of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

A well equipped apartment over two floors; we felt very comfortable there during our stay. There was air conditioning in two of the three bedrooms as well as in the main living area; vital when we were there, as temperatures were in the mid-30s centigrade (mid 90s Fahrenheit) when we were there in the high of summer. The kitchen was well equipped and the outdoor dining area was ideal (though we could have eaten meals inside had the need arisen). The steps to the (second storey) flat are very steep - possibly an issue for some. The front door opens onto the narrow pavement and the trams race up and down vary close to the flat - something to bear in mid if you're trying to manage small children. We had a hire car and found free parking nearby, at the Campo Santa Clara (some restrictions on market days). The Alfama is a great central location for exploring the heart of Lisbon, but expect to get lost at some point - it's a real maze.

Very nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to Lisbon and were happy with our choice in apartments. The apartment was very well appointed and a great value. There was construction underway in the neighboring apartment which was loud but certainly not Carla's fault. Also, we were visiting during a cold, rainy spell and the apartment was quite cold. There were extra blankets there to keep us warm but I think stone houses are not made to hold in the heat.

Overall, we enjoyed the apartment and found Carla to be professional and helpful. Our flight got into Lisbon very early in the morning and Carla arranged for a neighbor to meet us at the apartment so that we didn't have to walk around with our bags. We were very grateful. We would absolutely recommend the apartment.

Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this apartment to celebrate her 60th birthday. The apartment is in the Alfama area of Lisbon on the second floor of an old traditional building and overlooks the famous 28 trolly, which passes by the window. You climb a steep set of stairs, whereupon you enter a three bedroomed apartment, with two bathrooms and living room. The kitchen is galley style, very well equipped with all the necessary facilities. The apartment was very well cleaned and prepared for our arrival.

The apartment was excellent and after a day felt very much like home. We enjoyed the local neighbourhood with its cafes and restaurants which helped to make our experience of Lisbon so enjoyable.

I would like to thank our host for making the booking and email exchanges so straight forward.

Charming apartment in Alfama

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our stay in Afalma. The apartment is absolutely beautiful, sparkling clean, and a nice size. We would definitely rent it again if we ever find ourselves in Lisbon. Those with physical ailments who find it hard to take stairs or walk should note that Afalma is exceedingly hilly and this apartment has very steep, narrow steps that go up to the second floor where it's located. You do a lot of walking but it's a great neighborhood and only a 10 minute walk to the train/metro station. One of our favorite restaurants was right around the corner - Pateo 13. Outside dining, great grilled sardines, sea bass, chorizo, and wine!

Thanks for everything Carla and Mrs. Olinda!
