The Space

Beautifully restored 2-bedroom modern apartment in Alfama, Lisbon's Old Town district.

This apartment enjoys rustic decor with original wooden beams and traditional azulejos (typical Portuguese blue tiles), combined with modern functionality.

There are 2 bedrooms, each with a double bed, plus 1 comfortable double sofa-bed in the living room, allowing up to 6 guests to stay here.

We offer free Internet (both wi-fi and cable) and cable TV channels, and the large French windows in the living room afford interesting views to the streets of Alfama.

This building is centrally located just 200 metres from the Santa Apolonia Underground & Train station for excellent transport facilities.

Our price for this apartment is all-inclusive and covers: initial cleaning, sheets & towels, water & electricity, and free broadband Internet via wi-fi.

The apartment is fully-equipped with washing machine, dish-washer, oven, ceramic hob & microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle, etc. The apartments are also equipped with heating & air-conditioning.

It is often possible to park right outside the apartment or on the nearby streets, but this depends on if other vehicles are already parked there. If there is no space, there is a public carpark just 3-5 minutes walk away and which costs just 5€ per day!

  • We had a great stay at this apartment last week. The location was great (very close to Santa Apolonia train station, so easy if you're taking taxis anywhere - to pick one up or to be dropped off), in Alfama right at the end of Rua dos Remedios. The apartment was cute, well kept, and comfortable, and in a quiet part of town, without being far from everything. our only complaint (which could be fixed in about 15 minutes) was that the shower needs a good cleaning, but this is a minor thing. Key pick up and drop off was simple and punctual. We would highly recommend this location. Don't judge the location based on the facade of the building, which is a little tired looking but typical of Alfama. Walking distance to train station: 2-3 minutes. Walking to Baixa shopping area 25 minutes. Walking to St. Jorge's Castle: 40 minutes but if it takes longer, you're probably taking a less direct, more interesting route through amazing little streets and stairs.

    Response from Roger:

    Dear Gerry,

    Thanks very much for your review and the feedback regarding the shower, which we will certainly take care of this week. 40 minutes to the Castle would certainly be a "more interesting" route because it should normally take 20 minutes at the most :-)

    Thanks again, and hope to welcome you back one day!
    Roger.

  • We spent two nights at this apartment and enjoyed it immensely. The apartment is beautiful and had all the amenities we needed. It was also located in an amazing position in the old part of the city, we were in walking distance to great restaurants and the metro/train station which when you have a back pack on it is highly appreciated. Roger was very helpful before we even got to the apartment gave us some great tips and if i had any questions would answer me very promptly, I would recommend this apartment to my friends.

  • Roger's apartment is wonderful, clean, and well-equipped. The description that it is made on the website is really fair. We spent there a very good stay. Roger sent us all the information we needed before our arrival and the person of the agency who welcomed us was very nice. We recommend this flat.

  • We were very happy with our apartment provided by Roger Warwick. . It was clean, quiet very well-located and charming. Roger obviously has taken genuine care in the overall aesthetics and very nice furnishings. Another plus, and of great importance to me, is that the beds were comfortable. Also Roger was very responsive to our needs. When we arrived both fans were broken. We reported it to him and he made sure they were replaced immediately with new ones. We would love to stay there again if we ever return to Lisbon, which we hope we do as we loved it!

  • The Alfama apartment was so conveniently located, we could even hear Fado from the restaurant downstairs! Roger was a great help before we arrived, providing us with all the necessary information to find the apartment. Once we arrived in Lisbon, the local agents also were very friendly and informative. The apartment had all the maps, guides and tips to make our stay memorable.

  • The apartment is amazing. It's beautifully restored, situated in an incredible neighborhood which we might well have not explored if not for it being right out our front door. The hole in the wall restaurants and bars all along the tiny, winding side streets of the Alfama deserve second looks. Roger arranged everything for our stay. He communicated effectively, and made sure everything worked out for us. I would most certainly work with him again.
