The location is perfect. In the lower part of Alfama, so no steep hills to go back home. Only 1 min walk to the main road where you can easily get a taxi at any time of the day or night and also very short walk to the main area of down town Lisbon. Very close to public transport, Metro, Trains, Buses and also the famous 28 electric tram is just a short walk away.
Several convenience shops just around the corner and a larger supermarket 5-6 mins walk.
Being in the heart of Lisbon, public transportation is very easy to get. The popular bus 28 that runs Lisbon from north to south (including Belem) is at your doorstep. There are two subway stations nearby, Terreiro do Paço (8 min walking) and Sta. Apolónia (9 min walking).
A very central apartment inserted in the old part of Lisbon, Alfama, but in the lower part of the Alfama neighbourhood. No street climbing required. Easy access to public transport, main road and car park.

Other Things to Note

These last until 2am from thursdays to sundays and the streets are filled with stalls selling Grilled Sardines, Sangria, Wine & Beer.
If you like a good street party you could not be in a better location. If you are looking for a quite holiday this is not the place to stay during the month of June.
No smoking allowed.
Pets are not allowed.
Just look after the apartment as you would look after your own house, After all is your home in Lisbon....
Pedro was there on time to welcome if and quickly and evidently explained us how it all worked. His flat was the nicest and cleanest if all three we visited in Portugal. Its location next to a restaurant gave us live fado every evening, yet closing the window immediately silenced it. The square is also one of nicest in the old town.
The flat descprition was perfectly accurate. It's located in the heart of Alfama. It's a lovely flat correctly decorated with a really nice bathroom and all what we need for several days in lisbon. It's just near different restaurant with good ambiance. We can listen fado music directly from appartement (btw, if we close the window, it's perfect to sleep as well :) ). It was very comfy after a "tourist day" :)
The location is ideal to visit lisbon and close to different transport, restaurant, coffee, etc...
Alexandra & Pedro give really relevant information to reach the flat from the airport (avoid taxi at arrival but go at departure). When we landed, it's really comfy to have such info to get quickly on the good road.
The welcome was great, Alexandra waited us at the flat and explained all we need to know about the flat and the neighborood.
The flat is perfect and it's location is truly breathtaking. The host is very friendly and helpfull (even if you arrive in the middle of the night!). I couldn't have chosen better. Thank you for the lovely stay 3
Très bon accueil par alexandra qui nous donnes tout les renseignements possible sur lisbonne.
L'appartement est fidèle au photo, il est très bien situé en plein coeur du magnifique quartier de l'Alfama.
Nous avons même sympathisé avec la gérante du restaurant situé en dessous de l'appartement ou il y a du fado tout les soirs.
Nous recommandons fortement l'appartement ou nous avons passez un merveilleux moment.
We stayed at this fabulous studio for one week at the end of June. The studio is decorated and furnished very stylishly and is beautifully clean and easy to keep that way.
The bathroom is spacious,very modern and well equipped with a super shower every bit as good as you would find in a top hotel.
It is situated in the heart of the historic district of Alfama, a lovely neighbourhood with some excellent small cafes and Fado restaurants. Perfectly situated for wondering round the winding streets and walking to downtown or connecting with bus/train/tram.
We arrived late at night and it was very reassuring to be met by Pedro our host. He showed us round the studio and gave us lots of information about the neighbourhood, places to eat, sights to see etc.
He had previously emailed all the info needed to successfully reach the studio by taxi including tips on which taxi to take.
A great guy! Thank you Pedro. Joyce and Trevor.
We had a fantastic stay in Lisbon and in the appartment. Alexandra and Pedro made us feel welcome from the first minute. The appartment is super nice and cozy. The location is very central and Alfama in June is an experience. We hope to be back soon and we'll definitely stay again in this appartement.
Studio identique aux photos, propre et accueillant, très bien situé au cœur de l'Alfama. Les nuits bruyantes du quartier fêtant la Ste Antoine ne nous ont pas pour autant perturbées : dépaysement garanti, nous avons adoré !
