The Space

This cosy apartment is located on the second and third floor of a newly renovated building in the heart of the famous and historic Alfama district of Lisbon, and literally just 2 minutes walk from the magnificent Portas do Sol terrace, which provides breathtaking views of Alfama and the River Tagus.

Treat yourself to this beautiful apartment in Alfama, with a spectacular double round bed in the attic bedroom which makes your stay here particularly special. And the views really have to be seen to be believed!

The apartment is situated right in the middle of Alfama, just 2 minutes walk down some steps from the marvellous "Portas do Sol" viewpoint, one of the best known areas of Alfama due to its wonderful view of the area towards the river.

From this area it is just a 5 minutes walk to the "Sé", which is Lisbon's Cathedral and 10 minutes to the Castle of São Jorge.

The Beco do Garcês street is pedestrian only. Parking is sometimes possible on the nearby streets, after driving around a little to find a space, or 10 minutes walk away in the public carparks by the river. The Alfama carpark just 100 metres away is normally available but is currently not operational due to a mechanical problem.

The area contains many traditional cafeterias, bars and restaurants, as well as the small village-type shops typical of Alfama.

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, oven, ceramic hob & microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle, etc. The apartment is also equipped with heating & air-conditioning.

  • De retour d'un we sur Lisbonne où nous avons dormi dans ce superbe duplex, en plein coeur de l'Alfama. Idealment situé, avec vue sur le Tage et les toits de Alfama!

    Logement facile accès dans Alfama, un vrai plus! Taxi ou Tram28 à 200m ou metro!

    Emplacement idéal pr visiter Lisboa, on a tout fait à pied! Y compris Belem, le long du Tage (retour en Tram15!) Proche de 2 "cantines" portugaises (prix défiant toute concurrence Eurico et SantaRita)

    Et surtout, superbe accueil tardif! Arrivée prévue à 23h, finalement on a débarqué à 1h du matin, et Mauro nous attendait avec les clés!

    Et dernier point appréciable: réactivité +++ de Bernardo lors de la reservation!

    => Je recommande!

  • Located in a very nice and romantic area of lisbon with an outstanding view from the bedroom. Small but cozy apartment. Mouro, the guy who did the check-in, was very kind and flexible as we were 5 hours delayed. We would recommend this place to everyone!

  • Beautiful experience ! The flat is cosy and has a great location. Plus we have a 17 months old daughter and we had no problems at all ( she actually enjoyed climbing the stairs very much!) . Mauro was extremely helpful and to him go my warmest regards! Not to mention the flat is within a tenement where lovely ladies are living! If you want to enjoy Alfama and authentic people you can't miss this place!!

  • We had a great time in Roger's apartment!
    Unfortunately we did not get the chance to meet him but the communication with Roger since we booked has been both: personal and professional.
    Mauro who gave us the keys and showed us around the apartment did a fantastic job. He was very kind and spoke fantastic English - he also gave a few great restaurants insights that we took advantage of - great advice!

    The apartment itself is also great - especially the upstairs bedroom with the unbelievable view. Also the location of the apartment is super - you actually live in the centre but still have the charme of being surrounded by portugese people who actually live there. The only tiny, tiny little bit of criticism we have is that the bathroom was not as clean as it could have been ;-) nothing serious at all though.

    All in all we can only recommend this apartment and hope that you all have a great time in Lisboa and Portugal!

    Response from Roger:

    Hi Alexander,
    Thanks for your great review and just so we can make everything absolutely perfect for the next guests, we will certainly pass on your comments about the bathroom to our cleaning team.
    Thanks again, and please return whenever you wish!

  • The location of the apartment is great, only 2 minutes downstairs from the view point „Largo Porta de Sol“ where the tram No. 28 stops. Living in the middle of Alfama in one of the charming houses gave us the feeling of being real Lisboans for some days. From the bedroom upstairs you have a phantastic view over the roof tops of Alfama down to the Tejo. The apartment is ideal for 2 persons. It is not suited for handicapped people because the stairs are steep. The interior is stylish and everything is well-maintained. The bed was very comfortable. The only thing to criticize was a strange smell maybe coming from the drain pipes.

  • The apartment was exactly as advertised. Roger was very good at communicating and provided me with extensive documentation in advance on the apartment and places of interest (grocery story, restaurants, etc) in the area. The detailed instructions on how to get to the apartment were not only extremely accurate but also very welcome! I would love to stay here again.

  • Charming experiment in this charming flat. Everything was perfect, the place was really the same as on the pictures and no bad surprise at all. Informations provided and Mauro's welcome allowed us to feel really comfortable as we were beginning our discovery of the city. This flat is worth a try.

  • Apartment was wonderful, spectacular view! Superb intro to Portugal and Lisboa. Great location. We recommend this charming place in Alfama for absorbing the history and culture.

  • I stayed last week in this apartment in Lisboa and it was a pleasant place to stay and know Lisbon.

    Everything was ready when we arrived and we did not have any problem during our stay. At first it was a bit difficult to go up all those stairs but we got used to them quickly.

    It was near the Castelo area and you could go walking to Bairro Alto, Baixa, just around 20 minutes, and of course Alfama. The location is great and just in 1 minute you can see one of the best views of Lisbon.

  • Charming, mystic and modern apartment in the middle of old Lisbon. If you want to see Lisbon from the eyes of the locals, learn and experience their culture and way of living go no further, you have found the right place to stay! The neighbours are very friendly and helpful and the old part of the town is full of narrow streets and winding stairs. The apartment was tastefully decorated, extremely clean, very quite and serene. The rooftop window gives you the most magnificent of views. Experience 5 star accommodation without the price tag.
