The Space

House of Crows: Located in the heart of Alfama, right in the historic city centre of Lisbon, the House of Crows is a small, carefully restored house where you will find comfort and an unforgettable experience of living for a few days in the most ancient, traditional and typical quarter of Lisbon.
This charming house is only a few steps away from the famous 28 tram, and within walking distance of the central railway and underground station of Santa Apolónia. Its location on the street steps of Alfama allows the guests to get up close and personal with the ways of the Lisboners and discover a place where people still live in a tightly-knit community, where you can still find a typical grocery shop, a vibrant residents association and restaurants that conceal unique flavours.
The pleasant House of Crows has private access to the outside, one bedroom with a double bed and capacity for two guests. It has a small, fully-equipped kitchen for your daily meals and all the modern amenities. The captivating and charming decoration of the House of Crows, where local materials are used abundantly, was designed to make you feel at home in Lisbon.

  • The 'House of Crows' was just perfect in every sense! A fabulous location right in the heart of Alfama: (& in our opinion the 'best' district of Lisboa) very clean, modern, stylish and well equipped. The hosts: Nuno & Goncalo could not have been more friendly, helpful and generous with their local knowledge and recommendations. This was particularly welcome as we only had four days to cram in as much as possible of this wonderful city ... but we will return!
    We were very impressed & delighted that Goncalo took time out to collect us from the airport - this was a very much appreciated extra touch. Just fabulous - you should go & see for yourselves!

  • Our stay at the house in Alfama was a beautiful experience! They picked us up at the airport and told us what we really should see in Lisboa, while they considered our budget and interests.
    The house was exactly what we needed! Small, but ideal for two!
    It was very modern, clean and the bed was really nice :)
    The location is also beautiful. Tram and railway is really close! And last bot not least you see a authentic part of Lisboa in Alfama!
    It made our first stay in Lisboa a great experience!

    Thank you Nuno And Conçalo!

  • We were picked up at theairport by Nuno and driven to his and Goncalo's apartment. Bearing in mind the
    Location kn Alfama this was just as well as we would have difficulty in finding it even with (website hidden) maps directions. Anyway Nuno gave us an interesting and precise introduction to Lisbon.
    We liked the apartment as it was clean and had everything we needed.
    The temperatures got to 25 degrees or so and it did get quite warm as ventilation is limited.
    Other than that it was fine.
    Bear in mind the bathroom is down some steps so you had to be careful.

  • Les hôtes ont été très accueillants et sont venus nous chercher à la sortie du métro pour nous emmener au logement en plein coeur du quartier de l'Alfama où se déroulait la fête de la Sant antonio. Ils nous ont indiqué des endroits très sympas pour manger et visiter Lisbonne.
    Le logement était idéalement situé et nous avons apprécier les commodités (douche, chambre, cuisine...).

  • Nos hôtes furent parfaits et très attentionnés du début à la fin du séjour. Nuno est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport car nous sommes arrivées un jour férié. Il a même pris le temps de nous conseiller pleins de lieux typiques à voir (avec explication sur carte ! ). L'appartement est très bien situé et permet d'avoir un séjour typique en plein cœur du quartier graca alfama proche du magnifique castello Sao Jorge.

  • We hebben een prachtige tijd in het huisje van Nuno en Gonzales gehad. Alles was erg schoon en zag er netjes uit. Goncalo heeft ons zelfs van het vliegveld opgehaald. Dat was super, verder diverse goeie tips gehad voor te eten. De eigenaren waren altijd bereikbaar. Was gewoon super.
    Zeker aan te raden voor een verblijf in het Fado district

  • Very friendly hosts, Goncalo picked us up from the train station which saved us a lot of walking and time. Nuno & Goncalo gave us a lot of very helpful tips for the city as well as for Portugal overall. The house has a very good location right in the middle of Alfama. The house has all what you need including cooking gear, plates etc. and was very clean. Certainly a very good place to stay when you visit Lisboa.

  • Nuno and Goncalo are nice and quite helpful host:) Thank you for giving us great tips how to explore and indulge Lisbon, its sightseeing, food, Fado....We mnaged almost everything;)
    House of Crowns is situated in very nice and quite authentic block in Lisbon. We were lucky to have very typical Portuguese restaurants just in 5 minutes walking. Downtown is within 20 minutes walking distance, the Castle is in 5 minutes and there is convenient transportation, tram 28 and other buses.
    We loved the apartment, cosy and sufficient for two people.
    We recommend this house and hope we'll be back again in this lovely city:)

  • Nuno and Goncalo were brilliant! Thanks you so much! So friendly and had great tips for our very short stay. The flat was very cute and so clean and exactly like the pictures. Wish I could have stayed longer. The location was also great - Alfama was a lovely area to stay in and easy to get to anywhere in Lisbon using either trams or the Metro. And finally Lisbon we will be back, if only just to eat more great food!
