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.

Very important NOTE:
NO SMOKING HOUSE
In case it is found that smoked in the house we will remove the deposit an extra cleaning fee of 100€.
This is a serious matter, the Guest that will use the house then they can have serious health problems because of term smoked in the house, (as has happened with previous guest with asma). Not only in health and the fact that a house smelling of tobacco is VERY unpleasant and very uncomfortable.
The Cats House is really a little apartment. The location was really perfect for us and Susana is a wonderful host that will make sure that you have everything you need.
Above all I think that the neighbourhood is one of the best to eat in.
If this apartment caught your eye don't hesitate any longer.
We had a wonderful time at the Cats House! Really a special place and set right in the middle of the historic old town, 'Alfama'.
Everything went smoothly in terms if communication with Susana before, during, and after our stay. The flat is cozy and clean and beautifully decorated with everything one might need. It really felt like our home away!
I can recommend it without hesitation and will certainly be back when visiting stunning Lisbon again! Muito obrigada, Susana! :)
Ein sehr süßes Apartment in einer tollen Lage! Alles sieht genauso aus wie auf den Bildern. Wir wurden herzlich begrüßt und haben tolle Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt bekommen. Das Office ist direkt um die Ecke, sodass man immer jemanden erreichen konnte für Fragen. Insgesamt sehr empfehlenswert!
We had a lovely stay at the cats house! It is a very cozy flat and offers everything you need. A friend of Susana welcomed us very nice, she gave us a lot of tips for restaurants etc. in Lisbon and also for our whole trip trough portugal. Very nice!! We felt like home there and we'll come back next time :)
We had a great time in Cats house. Even if it was a little bit of hobbits house for my tall boyfriend, like Susanna said. The location was perfect. Center of idyllic Alfama, lots of restaurants surraund and walking distance to metro and city center. We saw Susanna when we arrived and left our luggages to their guesthouse. She was very helpful as was her husband who guide us to house and carried our bags every stairs.
Accueil très sympa!
Quartier très animé et pittoresque.
L'appartement est très propre, bien décoré et avec tout l'équipement nécessaire pour passer un bon séjour
Susana was a great host. She was very accommodating to us arriving quite late and was still willing to stay and chat with us for awhile. Her office is located close to the flat so if you have any questions about where to go in the city, she's always close by. The flat was more than enough for the three of us, in a great location with easy access to most of Lisbon. It is in a residential neighborhood, however, so as long as you keep it quiet at night you won't have any problems. Would recommend both the flat and Susana any day.

About the Host, Susana
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
