Cosy and lightful flat sited in the oldest area of Lisbon, Alfama. An amazingly romantic place, perfect for a couple, with a wonderful river view, quietly located on the 4th floor, the top roof of an old building.

The space

Cosy and lightful flat sited in the oldest area of Lisbon, Alfama. An amazingly romantic place with a wonderful river view, located on the 4th floor of a very old building that, apparently, used to be a convent - I still have no confirmation of this fact, but let's believe that it used to be a beautiful convent ;)

The flat has one bedroom, one bathroom and one living room with kitchenette. It has been redecorated with reused materials and some second hand furniture. The house it’s ideal for two, with a double bed (2,0m x 1,6m) in the bedroom.

As the major part of Alfama's buildings, it has no elevator and you have to climb the stairs until the 4th floor.

(this is due the fact of this area being very old and its buildings, most of them with centuries, have no conditions in their old construction to have an elevator)

On your disposal in the flat, you'll have:

- Bedding and towels;
- Wi-FI;
- Small Hair dryer;
- Washing machine;
- Fridge (usually with a surprise for you inside)
- Pans and pots;
- Microwave;
- Electric stove;
- Toaster;
- Water boiler and some other cooking utensils!

You will be right in the middle of one the famous places to visit in Lisbon, and 5 minutes walking distance from the Feira da Ladra (flea market), many churches (Igreja de Sto Estevão, Igreja de São Vicente and Igreja de S. Miguel), the Panteão Nacional, Fado Museum (fado music is now Unesco patrimony!) and lots of fabulous viewpoints and gardens.

From the flat, you'll be also very close to (about 5 minutes walking):

- Santa Apolónia Station: where you can find the main public transport, like bus, train and metro (also, for example, the night train for Madrid!!);
- Escolas Gerais or Rua da Voz do Operário (closest streets where the famous tram 28 stops).

To get to the flat from the airport, you can:

- Take a taxi (about 20min drive);
- Take a metro to Santa Apolónia station (about 40 min ride)

Alfama has the most famous Fado restaurants in the city, where you can hear people singing and you can eat delicious Portuguese dishes. In the neighbourhood you can also find pubs and the famous club, Lux.

If you need further information, please don't hesitate in contacting me! I'll be glad to help you! :)

In that cases, check-out hour will be until 12.00 and check-in after 14.00. (of course that I'll manage things differently if guests arrive at night and/or guests leave early in the morning...)

- The apartment, as it says in the listing description, is in an old building (almost every houses in Alfama are inside old buildings!), its stairs and floor are made of wood, so I ask you to have atention to the noise you do.

Great location in historic Alfama district, very bohemium neighborhood, interesting, a little old and tired but that does add to the charm, a lot of walking up and down cobbled stone streets so be prepared for that, have good walking shoes. Apartment is a 4th floor walk up so you will be doing a lot of stairs, it was fine for us, with luggage a little challenge but if your luggage is light no problems at all, would recommend and stay again

Beautiful apartment in the heart of authentic Lisbon! Close to walk to anything one way may need and surrounded by local businesses. Everything was very clean. Apartment was beautiful with an incredible view of the Tagus River beyond the classic terra-cotta rooftops. Book quickly. Sure this apartment won't remain vacant for long!

Cristina was a great host, down to a chocolate surprise and wine in the fridge for our arrival. The apartment is cute, colourful, and amazingly located. Loads of stairs to get up, so you also get your workout for the day. Highly recommend staying here!

Cristina was a great host. She lives within the same building as the flat and makes herself available in case you need her for anything. We were arriving early and she offered to hold on to our luggage if the flat wasn't ready for check in. When we arrived the flat was vacant but not ready for check in but she allowed us to drop off our luggage in the flat and freshen up a bit to head out for a day of sightseeing while she cleaned up. When we returned the flat was nice and cleaned and Cristina left us a nice surprise of cake and a bottle of red wine. She responded quickly to all of our questions and had some maps and guide books available in the flat. The flat is quaint and the view is amazing. At night there's a nice breeze that comes in through the big windows. The area has plenty of places to eat and we even heard someone singing fado music as we relaxed in the living room. The area is hilly but very walkable. We really enjoyed our stay.

Cristina User ProfileCristina is a superhost.

I'm Cristina and I live in Alfama: Lisbon's oldest and most typical neighbourhood. For me, doing Airbnb is like a "three in one": I share the pleasure of living in beautiful Alfama, I meet great people and I earn money to pay my bills.
I love to read, to write and to listen music. I miss my dog and I love my cat. I love Lisbon and the secrets that the city reveals to me, in every walk, in every talk, in every look.
