*** IMPORTANT INFO: In June, Lisbon has it's typical popular festivities of Santo Antonio. The central neighborhoods such as Bairro Alto, Santa Catarina, Graca, and Alfama (where this apartment is located) have month long daily fests. I you want peace and quiet during your visit to Lisbon in June, you shouldn't book these neighborhoods. If you want to be in the middle of the action and really live it like a local, there is no better place to be. Be advised that there is noise and music, starting in the afternoon all through the night***
Typical apartment in the heart of the traditional neighborhood of Alfama, with a single bed, a couch that sleeps one person, TV and wireless internet, a kitchenette with microwave, toaster and a coffee machine and a bathroom with shower and deck-style floor.
This is a very small apartment ideal for one to two guests as an alternative to the cold and crowded hostels. In Stay Like Us in Alfama II you will have privacy and your own bathroom with fresh towels and linens.
Located in Sao Miguel Square, this house is surrounded by restaurants, "Fado" houses, grocery stores, century-old churches and monuments, all within walking distance from downtown Lisbon.
In addition to being in the middle of Alfama's action, by walking 1 minute there are buses to all Lisbon's neighborhoods. You can also walk the 10 minutes that separate the apartment from Terreiro do Paço in downtown Lisbon. Also 10 minutes away there is the Santa Apolonia train and subway station.
During your stay, the guests can expect all the support and dedication from the hosts who will help you enjoy the city and make the visit to Lisbon unforgettable!
We really enjoyed our stay in Lisbonne at Sebastiao and Joao's place. We didn't have the chance to meet them though but we kept in touch by mail and we knew they was available if we needed. The hosts are nice and helpful. For example our flight was late and they allowed us to stay even if the check out was usually at noon. About the place : it is really small and suits better for one person. We also were surprised to see twins bed because, based on the pictures, we thought there was a double bed (for a romantic stay, it's a little disappointing !). The bathroom is also really small and not convenient (the shower is "on" the toilet). But the place is quiet and clean. We recommend this place for the kindness of the hosts and the very very good location (in the old historical part of the city)
Thanks for your review Parham! I am sorry you thought it was a double bed. Our studio has one twin bed and one extra sofa bed. It is set up like that in the pictures and also in the description. It is the best we can do with the space available. It is the best deal for two people in the middle of Alfama with a private bathroom you will get ;) but you already know that :p
We had a very nice stay in Lisboa. The location is perfect and the apartement was very clean. The communication was no problem at all and everything worked fine.
Tiny but lovely and efficient room/flat in the best neighborhood in Lisbon. Super value for money and great, responsive hosts. Highly recommend if you're looking for an affordable place in a great neighborhood but want to spend most of your time out and about.
it is a cozy tiny room, for winter times rather suboptimal, since the windows are not entirely closable so that the whole room gets quite wet. for the rest, the location is really nice, right in the middle of Alfama, the historical centre of lisbon.
Great trip! Sebastião & João are very nice ! Their appartement is perfect for some nights for couple or for friends! It is very little but very practical ! Lisbon is really beautiful, it is worthing the travel :)!
The appartement was small (ok enough for a short stay), but its situation was ideal in the heart of Alfama, very close to transportation and a lot of exciting things by feet.
Thanks to the host who were ready to help me. I strongly recomend this flat.
We stayed at Joao's studio for one night.
Good communication and good location. The area is full of restaurants and fado shows that you can hear from the apartment. The apartment is very small, but clean and good value if you are only looking for a place to sleep.
Thank you both!
