Located in the historic center of Alfama and Saint George Castle, this apartment that dates back to the eighteenth century, is a survivor of the great 1755 earthquake, which was modern and harmoniously refurbished, allows you to enjoy this unique experience, which is to know Lisbon . From its windows you can marvel at one of the most stunning views: Alfama and the Tagus River! (check pictures!!)
Moving in the city couldn't be easier. Just exit the building and hop into the typical 28 tram that passes at your doorstep or simply cross the street and experience all the city's splendor from Santa Luzia's belvedere in front of the apartment or Portas do Sol (30m left) or venture down to the streets of Alfama. This apartment is a 3 minute walk from the "Sé" Cathedral, 5min. from downtown and 10 minutes from the legendary open air market (Feira da Ladra), or the Graça and the Mouraria neighborhoods, not to mention that it's just 20 minutes away from Chiado / Bairro Alto.
Lots of shops and services in the surrounding area! This apartment is located in the area of the Fado houses, typical restaurants and panoramic terraces par excellence.
What we propose is simple: come, not to know, but to live Lisbon, with all its charm, tradition and history, while comfortably staying in an apartment with a splendid view and marked by good taste.
We had a great time in Lisbon in large part due to the generous hospitality of André (and later, his brothers). The apartment is really nice, small, and completely functional. It's location is great and is close enough to walk everywhere but not too close that you feel like a tourist. We spent a night dining at the family restaurant right below the apartment (highly recommended). Overall, we had a wonderful time and would definitely rent again.
Thanks to the apartment and the wonderful hosts, we had a wonderful time in Lisbon. This has been one of my best airbnb experiences. The apartment is very clean and charming perched as the penthouse of an old yet renovated building in the heart of Alfama, the picturesque historical center of lovely Lisboa. It is tastefully furnished to the extent that I asked the hosts about the professional interior decorator who chose the furniture and colors and was surprised that they did it. The apartment is within walking distance of many tourist sites. It is a walk up of about five floors (no elevators). For us that added to the charm and the exercise of carrying the luggage. The hosts are the nicest most helpful I have come across on airbnb, The were very warm and friendly and helped with what amounts to top rate concierge service. They work at their father's restaurant downstairs so at least one of them is always available. The restaurant is the best I have come across during a week stay in Lisbon. The view from the apartment is superb. I couldn't have asked for more in terms of a beautiful accommodation that made us feel as residents of Lisboa.
We had a great time in the Lisbon Apartment. It was situated in a great spot , able to walk to the main areas of the city. The veiw was stunning. The apartment had everything we needed and was modern and tastefully decorated. The help from Andre really topped off our stay. Directing us to all areas worth a look as well as how to catch trams, where to eat, what to pay taxis or anything you want to know. Making himself available when you wanted a question answered. Having the great restaurant downstairs was a bonus. We wanted to thank Andre and his family for their warmth and kindness. We would recommend this apartment highly.
This apartment, location, view, and its wonderful hosts might ruin you for any other AirBnB experience! Everything was fantastic, and they really pay attention to helpful details (magazines and maps, breakfast items, hair dryer) and will give you great recommendations of the best things to see, most of which are walkable from the apartment. We spent a lovely Thanksgiving holiday dinner at the restaurant below the apartment (which the family owns, too) and only regret we had such a small amount of time in Lisbon! What a beautiful city - we hope to be back soon. Obrigadíssimo, A, L and R!
Amazing place! Clean, cozy,Nice hosts and perfect equipment....
Exactly what you need to enjoy the city!
The accommodation was as advertised clean ,modern, well equipped with fantastic views and in a good location. My wife and and greatly enjoyed our trip ,the only down side was the number of stairs to climb, but worth the effort.Andre was most helpful with his guidance and we will recommend this apartment to our family and friends.
The apartment is on the 4th and top floor of a very old building and has magnificent views over the harbour. It's bright and sunny and fully modernised with every amenity required. The area is safe and well located to explore Lisbon. What was important to us was that it was spotlessly clean with very good bedding and linen.
Andre and his family are very nice people who were extremely helpful and attentive to our needs.
We had a fabulous stay at Tram 28. Greeted by Andre with lots of helpful advice, breakfast supplies and fresh coffee in the kitchen! The apartment was just as described and photographed on the site. Thanks. Highly recommended for an experience in "old" Lisbon.
We met Andre as we got out of the taxi in front of the apartment and we knew we were in good hands - everything was absolutely great from the start. The apartment is lovely, in an excellent location, and very comfortable - our stay could not have been better and we'd recommend this to everyone! Andre was super helpful in everything (including giving us tips on excellent restaurants, travel, getting a taxi back to the airport and warning us for taxi drivers trying to rip you off.. which was utterly true). Lisbon is a wonderful city and I hope to be back soon. Guys, thanks very much for everything and we hope to see you again one day! J&W
Have you ever had the experience of visiting a city, finding a beautiful spot and thinking "I'd wish I lived there"? Thanks to André, Luís and Ricardo we just lived exactly there - at our dream spot beneath the Lisbon sky and with the most incredible view. Not to mention the brothers' great help and kindness. We will definately come back!
