About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4 (or 6 using the sofa in living room)

Located in the heart of the medieval Moorish and Jewish neighborhood of Alfama, the apartment has a stunning view over the wide River Tagus estuary. At walking distance of some of Lisbon’s leading museums and monuments, the apartment has a choice of typical grocers nearby as well as family-run restaurants, supermarkets, outdoors cafes, bars and other shops.

The apartment is in a building nestling the slope of a hill, 100 m above sea level, overlooking the river, so while its main, and private, entrance is on the ground-floor, you can enjoy the stunning river view from the second floor balconies on the other side of the building, without having to climb any stairs.

The building is facing south, the apartment is sunny and bright. You can sit in the living room and admire the beautiful light of the sunset over old town roofs and the amazing Tagus water's mirror.

Casa d’Alfama is duly registered in the Tourism Authority of Portugal (#986/AL) and respect Portuguese laws and regulations.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying in this bright, airy place. It was warm, but breezes off the river meant that we never used the fans supplied. Very convenient for walking and Cristina very helpful.

Great place to stay right in the middle of Alfama.

  • 5 of 5

It is the middle of Alfama walking distance to groceries, bakery, bus and tram stations. Christina was a wonderful help with a map of the area and information about nearby beaches.

Gelungener Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Zentrale Wohngelegenheit mitten in Alfama, das Leben und die Feierlichkeiten waren sehr gut mitzuerleben. Wohnungseinrichtung wie beschrieben vorgefunden. Viele Lokale sowie Lebensmittelgeschäfte fußläufig zu erreichen.

Der Kontakt mit der Vermieterin (Cristina) hat sehr gut funktioniert. Wir würden wieder dort wohnen.

Very convenient and nice place

  • 5 of 5

Clean and very well maintained place, fully equipped kitchen, very nice Wallpictures and paintings. The manager provided lots of interesting information what to do in Lissabon and organised everything well. Beautiful view on the river, shops and restaurant all around. Excellent place to go again!

a cute apartment

  • 4 of 5

on a narrow old cobble stone street with a nice view of the water, this enjoyable apartment was pleasant and well equipped. It was however hard to get to and from. No nearby bus or Metro, so be prepared to walk lots of hills. In fact Lisbon itself is not well serviced with public transport in my opinion, not just this apt. and I found no Tourist Information Helpers and the locals less than warm. And if they give you bread and olives and cheese before a meal at a restaurant, know that there is a hefty price associated with it. It's not free!

Owner's Response: Thank you for you review, although it's inaccurate. There are several public transport options close to the apartment: the subway station is located at 600 meters, there is a bus stop located at 400 meters and a tramway stop located at 100 meters. Of course in Lisbon you have to walk up and down the hills. It's the nature of the town — and its charm. If you wish to visit a flat town I recommend you Paris or Amsterdam. I know you had a bad experience with the taxi driver from the airport. Unfortunately it happens (I had recommended you a transfer, that you didn't want) but, in my opinion, this shouldn't influence the appreciation of the apartment.

Fantastic, beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay in Lisbon. The pictures are very accurate and reflect a home that is beautifully furnished and equipped and with stunning views. When we weren't out touring Lisbon, we just sat and watched the Tagus river and listened to the sound of Fado from a club that is a block away. The location is great, about 12 minute walk to the Santa Apolonia railway and metro station-there is also a good grocery store there--and a one minute walk to the 28 and 15 tram lines. The home is full of beautiful art and lots of great books about Portugal and Lisbon. There is a tiny extra room that has a hammock so if someone in your party needs some "time out" they can hang out there in peace. Neighborhood is busy with people but there are few cars because it is the Alfama neighborhood. Customer service was excellent-all of our questions were answered promptly. It was a very good value for the money because the views from the apartment meant we never forgot where we were, in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
