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.
I do not want to impose rules for your vacation stay, but still would like to make some notes.
The apartment is in a residential area and we have an excellent relationship with our neighbors, and so we would like to continue.
Please respect the neighbors.
Is always nice to find the apartment estimated.
The flat is lovely, cosy and perfectly situated in the middle of Alfama, but still within walking distance to Praca de Comercio. Easy to reach by the subway blue line when coming from the airport. Wooden interior details and decorations make you feel at home. The place is well equipped and even had a washing machine. Susana was very welcoming and gave us many tipps on what to do and where to go.
Only thing one has to consider is the narrow stairway up to the third floor where you have to lift your luggage up to. But you're rewarded by view and sunshine :-)
Overall easy and enjoyable experience. Susana couldn't have been any nicer and more helpful. She gave me great recommendations for sites and restaurants! Fun neighborhood to stay in which made the experience that much better.
We had a really nice stay at Susanna ´s home. Very nice and comfortable, close to everything and in the Alfama center. Susanna and her friend were very kind to meet us, we really loved this place and will go back next time
I'm afraid that my trip did not go to plan due to personal circumstances so I cannot review my holiday, however, I can review Susana and would say that she was helpful and I was touched by her concern given I was a complete stranger.
I am sorry that I never got to meet Susana but I hope to be able to soon to experience Alfama as I had originally planned.
We had a great stay in the alfama in Susana's apartment, it is a great location for exploring the old town and the fado restuarants. Our stay was made more enjoyable by Susana's restaurant recommendations! A great first experience of airbnb and easy check in/out.
Susana was a fantastic host- full of brilliant information and very kind and attentive to ensure all was good for the stay.
The flat is really well equipped and the views re stunning-plus a superb location- highly highly recommended
Susana was very nice and friendly. The apartment was just as in the photos. There were some maintainence works but all in one everything was ok.

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
