Interaction with Guests
We're of the neighborhood, local people. We are always available.
Susana is dedicated to guests the whole time.
We like to be with the guests in the evening with a cool drink, to share a bit of our country and get a bit of the country of origin of each guest.
This neighborhood beyond its charm has a very special thing - its authenticity. It's a neighborhood full of life with people who inhabit it and we have everything from the simplest to the fanciest. In a word - unique
We are in the city center. There is metro, bus and mythical electric 28 is in a few steps away.
The downtown is within walking distance.

Susanna nous a bien renseigné avant le voyage en nous donnant l'accès à son site afin de préparer au mieux notre séjour. Nous sommes arrivés dans la matinée et nous ne pensions pas récupérer les clés avant 15h mais tout était près. Susanna nous à proposer plusieurs itinéraires pour arriver à la maison des chats. Sa maman nous a accueilli, nous avons échangé ensemble au téléphone. Cette immersion dans le coeur même de l alfama restera un très bon souvenir avec l'envie même de revenir avec mes enfants plus tard. L'appartement était parfait pour 4 jours, nous n'avons manqué de rien. Encore merci Susanna!
Nossa viagem a Lisboa foi incrível! Susana foi atenciosa conosco durante toda a estadia, inclusive ajudando-nos a prolongá-la por mais alguns dias. Forneceu-nos diversas dicas sobre a cidade e respondeu-nos com presteza e atenção sempre que foi necessário contatá-lá! A Casa dos Gatos é aconchegante e nos permitiu viver como verdadeiros Lisboetas. Recomendamos a todos!
Appartement parfaitement équipé, très confortable, très calme. Conforme aux photos. Idéal pour un couple.
Accueil parfait, propreté impeccable...le tout dans un quartier magnifique!
La qualité de notre hébergement a contribué à la réussite de notre séjour.
Un grand merci à Susana!
The appt was small but very nice, stylish and cosy, you have everything you need. The bed is comfy, and everything is sparkly clean. The location is ideal. It might be cold in the mornings.Highly recommend!
Ein sehr süßes und gemütliches Appartement mitten in Alfama. Von hier aus kann man alles prima zu Fuß erreichen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt! Im Winter war es nur leider zu kalt. Die Heizung hat nicht ausgereicht.
Susana ci ha accolto calorosamente alla Casa dei Gatti e, nonostante fosse impegnata al momento, si è presa del tempo per darci il benvenuto e farci sentire subito a nostro agio. La casa è proprio come si presenta in foto: nonostante sia piccola, per una coppia è comoda e accogliente. La zona in cui si trova permette di entrare in sintonia con la vita quotidiana del quartiere storico dell'Alfama, è tranquilla e relativamente vicina al centro (Rossio) e alla stazione dei treni/metro di Santa Apolonia (nella quale c'è un piccolo supermercato utilissimo per la spesa).
L'esperienza è stata davvero positiva e Susana è un'host eccellente e premuroso. Cosigliamo vivamente di trascorrere del tempo a Lisbona in questo appartamento per immergersi appieno in questa favolosa e unica città.
Susana is an excellent host and made us feel very welcome. My second time to visit the apartment. The location is great and the apartment is small but has everything and feels 'bigger' than it is. The Alfama street where it is located is very picturesque and atmospheric. Susana was very helpful in responding to a small 'issue' we had. (Hot water in shower) and even offered us another accommodation if we wished! We were very happy to stay there for our 3 night mini holiday and would return if we visit Lisbon again,

We are a portuguese couple that at the beginning of our married life we have been fortunate to find a house in the center of Lisbon in a neighborhood that we only known the name - Alfama. We were welcomed with open arms by people who do not know us, but they treated us like family. The demonstrations of friendship and good neighborliness were daily ... were undoubtedly one of the best years of our lives. But the family was growing and the house no longer met the conditions for a biger family. We can't give away the house ... it's really special. Then came the idea, why do not provide this experience to others?
The reason why the house is called 'Cats House' is because when we lived there, we had five cats and lovingly to our neighbors and friends called it the House of Cats, and found it good to leave it with that name to remember the happy times live in Alfama and of course in memory of ours cats.
And the will to receive grew even more with this experience, and came "The Window of the World," and other people's homes and friends from a friends who give us their homes to receive the same love and care we receive in our house ... and thus also come to be our as well ...to receive with the same desire and taste as I have received in the Cats House I hope you like and welcome.
I sincerely hope to those who choose to come to stay in Alfama, which are as happy as we were ...
Susana and João
