  • Miguel's place is in an area with a lot of character and old-world charm. It requires walking up hills (some fairly steep), but it's part of the experience, I felt. The unit is very functional. Miguel thought of all sorts of little details to ensure we were well accommodated for and safe (a fire blanket and extinguisher :-) ). It was a lovely experience.

  • Very good appartments 2 mins by foot from historical tram route in the one of the best districts with lots of local street life and other interesting things. The owner is also a cool man, who can show you secret places of Alfama. Best regards Miguel!

  • The apartment was beautiful!!. Two bedrooms and two baths, so each couple had complete privacy. Beautiful view of cathedral and fortress, enjoyed through french doors on two sides of the apartment. Location in the middle of everything, so no added expense for cabs. Could not have been more pleased! Would stay again, but would pack lighter as there is no elevator, and apartment is on 3rd floor. But positive was that there was no street noise.

    Sandy2017-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is beautiful, completely renovated with great taste. Appliances are state of the art. Both Joaos, one who picked us up from the airport and greeted us at the apartment were most kind and helpful . It is conveniently located, within walking distance to downtown and easy access to trams and buses . I fully recommend this apartment when you plan to come to Lisbon. The only thing you should keep in mind is that it is a third floor and the stairs are rather steep. Thank you for maki g our stay so pleasant! Maria

    Maria E2017-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment exceeded all expectations on all fronts. It was clean, open, modern and in a great location. Could not recommend it more. João was a fantastic co host and made our stay all the more welcome. Thank you very much to both and when I next come to Lisbon I will make sure to stay in this apartment again !

    Ludo2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Nice cozy flat -- very well located - perfect for a short break in Lisbon. A welcome bottle of wine was very thoughtful and Joao was very helpful.

    John2017-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with easy access to Alfama, Barrio Alto and Chiada. Beautifully and tastefully decorated.

    Paul2017-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is clean and spacious and is located very close to many major attractions. We did not have a car and did not need one. We were able to walk or take public transportation to the areas we wanted to see. I'd definitely recommend this apartment.

    Berit2017-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful third floor apartment situated in a fantastic location near the cathedral. It was a great base to explore wonderful Lisbon. The apartment was clean, stylish and had everything we needed for a city break. The 28 tram stop is right across the road if you want to explore the castle or Mirador de Graca (for great views of the city). We also found it easy to book an uber to and from the apartment. Joao who checked us in was extremely accommodating about our early arrival and late departure and made us feel very welcome. We would definitely stay here again.

    Sarah2017-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, clean (most important for us), nice, good location. Next to Se and stop of 28 tram. Take into account that there is no elevator. Recommend for everyone

    The apartment is in a great location in the heart of Alfama and very comfortable.
    This private house is inside of an excellent area in the main heart of Lisbon, Alfama, next to Rua Augusta and nearby the city's most charismatic neighborhoods (Bairro Alto, Castelo de São Jorge, Chiado, Mouraria).
    This quaint medieval district (once the Moorish and Jewish quarter before it became a fishing community) is the oldest neighborhood in Europe after El Pópulo in Cadiz. It's like a small village, standing as a time capsule to the years before Lisbon was destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, as it remained standing thanks to its rock-solid foundations. Put away your map and wander aimlessly through its "becos" (alleys) and "largos" (small squares), allowing your senses to be the guides. You'll see magnificent river views and laundry out to dry from balconies, smell fish being grilled in a corner, hear the sounds of Fado coming out of a restaurant, taste authentic traditional meals, and touch some dazzling tilework. Set in a visually stunning hill that extends to the neighborhood of Graça, this is Lisbon at its most picturesque and the very soul of the city. Life here continues much as it has for centuries, but walk down towards the river and you're once again in modern times: old warehouses have been renovated and turned into some of the city's coolest hotspots, from DeliDelux for brunch to Bica do Sapato for dinner, and Lux for drinks and dancing until sunrise.
  • Great location. I prefer Alfama over Bairro Alto as it feels a bit more quaint and it was easier to find great restaurants. I never met Kleber but he left the keys, though his directions were wrong which I did not discover until I arrived and panicked a bit. All was resolved after a quick text but the lack of clarity meant that Kleber was far removed from the apartment prep process (his housekeeper left the keys somewhere else rather than where he told me they would be). The wifi info in the AirBnB details section was also wrong. Again a quick text solved the issue but I'd rather have just met Kleber and dealt with it on our arrival or had accurate info. We had issues with bug bites while sleeping in this place. I suspect it was due to leaving the windows open for about and hour during our first evening and letting bugs in given that I have seen no other negative reviews related to this but the bugs remained for the remainder of our 3 night stay despite using the bug spray provided in the apartment. It's another thing I would have appreciated as a warning with suggestions on how to prevent this situation given that bugs seem to be common in the summer evenings, but since I didn't meet Kleber, I did not receive them. Average experience overall, though the location of the flat is still amazing. Would have appreciated more of a personalized touch and meeting a local as I am used to experiencing with AirBnB.

  • The house is located very centrally and in the heritage area , everything is nearby and at walk able distance/ climbable distance .. Yes in Lisbon most of the times you climb up or climb down ,especially in these old areas of Alfama. The house is well kept and very practical for two people. For foodies, you will find lot many genuine local restaurants, place is very conveniently locate for most of the tourist attractions and also for transport to anywhere in Lisbon and around.

    Deepak2016-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Kleber and Glaucia's apartment is lovely and cosy in a charming pedestrian street. A perfect place for a memorable stay in Lisbon. We'll certainly be back!

    Gabriele2016-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice time in Lisbon and the flat was one of the main reason! Lovely home very well located in Alfama, ideal to discover the area and enjoy an amazing view from the window directly. The flat is very convenient, a bit noisy but only during the day. We were allowed to store our luggage during the last day so we could enjoy more walks around the city. I would definitely recommend this place and would not hesitate to choose it again should I come back to Lisbon!

    Elisabeth2016-05-16T00:00:00Z

He was available to help us with anything we needed and truly made us feel at home. The apartment was very accurate to description and really well located. We highly recommend this place! Thank you Hugo for making our time in Lisbon so memorable.

    Amanda2016-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • A really nice place to stay - for us the best we could choose! Hugo goes beyond just providing a room, he made, with the time he spent with us and the places he showed us, our time very special! The appartment is great for exploring the city at night in Alfama by foot and has a nearby Metro- & train-station.

    Anja2017-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time in Lisbon, Hugo's flat was the perfect place for us: in walking distance of great restaurants and bars, next to a weekly flea market and with it's own little garden. The 3 bedrooms where super spacious and and the living room was comfy. Hugo was a great host, we hope we will get to meet him again!! :)

    Milou2016-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Hugo is a nice and interesting person to have a talk. He tried his best to show us around his area while he has a busy working schedule. The house is same as the photos. If you love cats, then there are about 10 cute alley cats behind the house. This area is super quiet at night ( It might be because of the timing, we were there in early Dec.). I enjoyed watching the sea and boats from the balcony in the living room every morning. We hope next time when we visit here again, he could play Chalo for us during our stay!

  • Really beautiful apartment and brilliantly located. Fabulous space for our visit. Everything was really easy and our host even provided some great recommendations of places to go. We'd love to go back and wouldn't hesitate booking again. My only little niggle was the shower heads weren't attached to the wall which made showering slightly awkward!!

The host was extremely conscientious with checking in and following up. The host even went out of his way to provide help when a member of our trip broke her finger and needed medical care. A+++

    Welcome to Alfama!
    Despite being an old building this apartment has been completely remodelled and redecorated in order to provide you a comfortable and pleasant stay. Located in a third floor apartment (no elevator) where you can find all the necessary utensils so you can feel as if you were in your own home. Such as: sheets, towels, refrigerator, microwave, blender, toaster, juicer, coffee maker, kettle, seasonings and spices for cooking... At home door will still have access to all kinds of trade (bakery, grocery store, ice cream parlour, outdoor cafes , souvenir shops ... ) , good restaurants and bars open late, and the city's best fado houses where you may listen to live fado while enjoying Portuguese cuisine.
    Alfama is one of the most typical neighborhoods in Lisbon! Its staircases and narrow streets, fado houses and traditional shops give Alfama a picturesque atmosphere as if the neighborhood had stopped in time. This apartment is located between the Museum of Fado and the belvedere Portas do Sol near the St. Michael church. This is a restricted area for cars that except in June is a quiet place, perfect for resting after a day of sightseeing the city of Lisbon.
  • We really enjoyed our stay in Lisbon. The apartment was perfect. Clean, good located, peaceful, well furnished and everything was there what you need. Inês was very helpful - she is definitely a super host. I can highly recommend this apartment!

    Stephan2017-04-29T00:00:00Z

    Luuk2017-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Inès is a great host who provides you everything you need. She made me a detailed list of where to eat and places to travel in Portugal. Also she is very flexible in terms of check in and out. The place is very charming in a very authentic neighborhood. Very easy to walk around the little streets as well. All the old town charm that has to offer. Clean and comfortable with great view. Ines prepared fruit and wine for the apt which is very sweet. It's definitely a great place to stay!

    Michelle2017-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in the beautiful Alfama. Ines, was a great host and provided great insight into what to see and (URL HIDDEN) well as a bottle of wine on arrival. The place itself was clean with all the amenities required for a few nights. The location of the flat is great, very close to lots of bars and restaurants. Would recommend staying.

    David2017-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely lovely time at Ines's apartment. You are bang in the middle of Alfama surrounded by beautiful orange rooftops and Swifts dancing in the sky. During the evening you can hear Fado music and the horn of the cruise ships waiting for their passengers. There are countless great places to go including the local cathedral, the castle and shopping within walking distance and places like Belem and its wonderful monastery easily accessible by transport. All in all its a pretty great place to be.

    David2017-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice apartment, the pictures reflect how it really is. Everything is present. The kitchenette is well equipped. Location is also very central in Alfama = the old town. Cozy restaurants nearby. Around the corner a bakery and grocery store. Metro and tram close by. Still quiet location. Very friendly welcome. Recommended !

    Wim2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and host. Ideally located near the Sao Bento metro station in the Riberia district. On meeting Eloi he gave us some really nice tips for places to visit and eat in the local area. Also Joana and Eloi communicated well before our trip. The apartment was tastefully decorated with all the amenities we needed for our short stay. It was a little noisy at times but this is understandable with such a great central location. All in all a great place to base yourself for a stay in wonderful Porto.

    Chris2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend Ines' place! Great location, within walking distance of lots of great restaurants, public transport, placa de comercio, and shops. We walked everywhere during our stay, and my legs are definitely more toned now - you need to be fairly active to stay in Alfama! The flat is exactly as described and it was perfect for 2 people. The ceiling is sloped in the bedroom but not a problem at all. Very clean and tidy. The kitchen is well equipped. Wifi works great. Ines met us outside the flat which was appreciated as Alfama is quite narrow streets. She took the time to explain the main things to do, and sites to see, and was very responsive over messages before our stay :)

    Milda2017-05-18T00:00:00Z

The room was clean and already equipped with everything we needed, though it was a new place. The communication with them was very easy and uncomplicated. Thanks again! See you next time :)

    Lisa Maria2017-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • It is a 3 bedroom apartment with 1 bathroom and a tiny kitchen. It has everything you need (towels, microwave, cutlery). Erik was very kind to wait for us on arrival and gave us some useful tips about the city. Amazing location in the old city part near the centre, you can walk everywhere. The only downside, the wifi stopped on the first night and we couldn't connect anymore. We didn't mind as we were coming to the apartment only to shower and sleep. Overall, perfect accommodation for a city break holiday.

    Lilyana2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • a lovely flat in the center of Alfama, with a awesome view towards the center of the neighborhood. The owners are a kind and lovely couple.

    Matteo2017-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice cozy room in Alfama district. There a lot of restaurants and souvenirs shops nearby. Jon is really attentive host. I really appreciated for his helps.

    The apartment is located at João do Outeiro street, in Lisbon, on the 3nd floor, without elevator, of a refurbished building on a small square, just a few steps from the Moorish Castle São Jorge, near Baixa and Alfama, but also where there is the first woman fado singer house (‘Severa’, 30 meters). It’s a pedestrian medieval street and nearby there are various forms of traditional Portuguese trading, and from there you can easily reach most of the popular sightseeing spots in Lisbon. The building, from 1786, has been restored in 2006, and the apartment in 2012, located in one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Lisbon: Mouraria. A mix of different cultures and traditional ways, Mouraria is the essence of Lisbon. The flat is close to Praça de Figueira and Rossio Square. It has a traditional Portuguese architecture with total modern comfort and amenities. The apartment has a fantastic view over the city, streching to São Pedro de Alcântara, Miradouro da Graça, São José and Martim Moniz. The views are even more beautiful at sunset. In the area: Bus stop: 80 m Subway: 80 m Electric tramways: 80 m (tramways 12 and 28, the most typical) Typical restaurants (‘tasquinhas’): less than 30 m Supermarket: 80 m Shops: 50 m Pharmacy: 90 m Toll parking: 80 m Police: 80 m Car hire Bike hire Rossio (Center): 2 minutes Martim Moniz big square: 80 m Next to St. George Castle Mouraria is the oldest district of Lisbon and its name refers to the Moors who lived there more than 9 centuries, until 1147, and Fado music was born.
  • We had a wonderful stay in Miguel's flat. It's right in the centre, in a typical Portuguese neighborhood. He really took the time to show us around, indicating the closest metro stop, pharmacy etc. There's a little supermarket (Spar) just around the corner. Don't miss out on Marcelino, a lovely little restaurant just 10 minutes away. The flat itself is gorgeous, modern and with lots of light. We would definitely stay here again if we ever come back. Thank you Miguel!

    Anna2013-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Miguel's flat was perfect for our stay in Lovely Lisbon. It's clean, fresh and spacious and had all we needed. It's located just out of the main touristy area (which we wanted) but so close to everything you want to see - including the 28 Tram route! There is also a small and delicious veggie restaurant opposite which we loved. Miguel was a great host, respectful of the other guests privacy as they vacated and very welcoming to us. He showed us into the centre on our first day and told us of all the must see spots! THANK YOU Miguel, hope we can return to Lisbon soon, we'd definitely stay again and would highly recommend your flat.

    Hannah and Diego 2014-07-09T00:00:00Z

    Christina2016-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Miguel was very helpful, friendly and easy to communicate with. Very modern and well-laid out apartment. Charming location. Would definitely recommend staying here!

    Jonathan2016-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Miguel was a great host, really nice guy and so friendly and helpful. The pictures of the apartment don't do it justice at all. It's really nice. There were only two of us so we had plenty of space. It might be a little cramped if there were 4 or more people staying. Miguel had lots of suggestions for what to do and see in the city and some great advice too. The bistro downstairs was also really great, €1.50 for a nice beer and the vegan place across the way was fab too but you need to make a reservation. All in all, we had a great trip and would definitely stay at Miguel's if we ever came back to Lisbon.

    Aoife2016-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Miguel is a very good host. He explained us how coming, he visited the district with us and gave a lot of informations. The appartement is beautiful, very clean and luminous. The place is typical and quiet. In the appartement, there are all the necessary to cook and more. In a nutshell we love !

    Laure2016-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Miguel's place was everything we hoped for. Great situation, and a very well-equipped apartment in the home of Fado. Miguel's friend met us and gave us all the information we needed. Thank you, Miguel for letting us stay at your place!

    Excellent fully equipped apartment, located within the walls of Castle of S. Jorge, one of the most important historical monuments of Lisbon. The apartment is higher than any "miradouro" sightseeing spot in town so it has unique breathtaking view. CHECK MY OTHER APARTMENT WON'T REGRET! Its has a snooker table... https://www.airbnb.pt/rooms/13213083
    Being the highest apartment inside that walls of the castle gives the apartment an exclusive view of the river. (From Panteão Nacional to Cristo Rei). Restaurants, supermarket and all facilities nearby. The decoration is a mix of influences. Mixing vintage and new design furniture

  • Pedro's apartment was great for our way-too-brief one-night stay in Lisbon. The location above all was absolutely perfect; you can't beat it. The views were breathtaking, the apartment itself was cozy and well decorated, and Pedro was very nice and accommodating - the bottle of white wine was a very nice touch! I will say that we would have appreciated a fan or some air conditioning - it got very hot, and we had some trouble sleeping.

    Stephanie2016-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely experience! Pedro made us feel very welcome, he even provided a bottle of wine we shared on the small balcony enjoying the stunning view over this beautiful town. Sadly we could only stay one night in Lisboa just before flying back home, but we will definitely visit again with more time on our hands :)

    carmel2016-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Pedro was great to deal with, and communicated well in English & Portuguese. He met us at the gate of the castle, as planned and walked us into the apartment. It's a 3 story walk-up and he even offered to carry our bags up -- that's notable because we were heading elsewhere from here and not travelling light. Everything was as expected. It's a small apartment, but that's very typical of the location. Ditto for the kitchen, and the shower. The kitchen was stocked with coffee & tea and basic cooking ingredients like seasonings (olive oil, vinegar, salt etc) .. enough if we had chosen to cook (we didn't!). There's a mini-market literally steps away, so one can buy fresh bread, milk, fruits & vegetables and anything you might forget at home. The castle served as a great home-base for going into the Alfama district, and into downtown. FYI there a bus stop right outside the gates and a bus ticket is 1.6 euro per person - we did that to get downtown and then did a "hop on hop off" to see the city before returning to specific places. We would gladly recommend Pedro and this place

    Luis2016-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent all round

    David2016-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Pedro was a wonderful host who went out of his way to make sure we had a good stay, even leaving us a bottle of wine upon arrival. He has a beautiful flat with what must be the best view in Lisbon. We had an incredible time there, and hope to come again in the future!

    Sam2016-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is small but comfortable and provides fantastic views of the old city from its location inside the castle walls. It feels really special to stay there amidst the labyrinth of cobblestoned streets which can be confusing but Pedro met us at the São Jorge castle gates and helped us with our bags as he led us the short distance to the apartment. The apartment is three floors up narrow stairs so we were happy not to have a lot of big luggage. It is very handy to a mini market and restaurants. Pedro had a cold bottle of rosé chilling in the fridge for us. We also appreciated that he arranged a taxi to pick us up at the door early the next morning to bring us to the airport. Wished we could have stayed longer!

    Nancy2016-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really nice stay in Pedro's apartment. The views across Lisbon were spectacular and there is plenty to see in the area.

    Michael2016-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Pedro was a very nice host, who gives us every information that we needed. We had a great stay in the appartement and the view form the windows and balcony was amazing. With the tram 28 its easy to get up to the Castle and to arrive other places. Definitly recommendable!

  • The apartment is small, but very, very cosy and comfortable. The view over the Tejo is fantastic and Ana and Rita are so lovely hosts. Thank you for a wonderful trip!

    Sophie2015-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Dear Rita, Dear Ana, Thank you for your warm welcome and giving us helpful tips. We fell in love with Lisbon during our stay at your flat. If someone is looking for a nice place to stay – here it is – your story flat. The view over the river when waking up in the morning or drinking wine in the evening is stunning. Besides you can easily reach the metro to get to all the lovely places like Belém or Sintra. We have a tip for you out there: Don´t miss the beach Guincho. We missed it when visiting Cascais and we regret it because people are saying it is beautiful. But I´m sure this is not our last stay in Lisbon and of course we can´t imagine a better place to stay. Altogether the story flat is located central, very clean and comfortable. We send you greetings from Hamburg, Germany. Janine & Sören

    Janine2014-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much! The apt is located in a perfect place, up the hill with a beautiful view. You'll find everything you need all around you, step away from Alfama. The apt is very clean and looks exactly as described. The email that we received before the trip from the owner was very helpful and provided us with some great local spots to have a drink or dinner. Thank you very much and we definitely recommend the apt for a lovely holiday!

    Fikret Hakan2015-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • The flat is very lovely and it is exactly like the photos. Rita greeted us on the day and gave us a warm welcome with lots of tips for visiting Lisbon. Couldn't ask for a better place!

    Anh2015-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Hello everyone I'd recommend the apartment, it is really great. The neighborhood is fine, it is the heart of Lisbon. There is parking at the door of the apartment and the area is quiet, safe. The views from the apartment are great, very romantic. Welcome the apartment is great, very friendly. You can ask them your questions about the city. I have reviewed many apartments in Lisbon and this is certainly one of the best. Do not lost more time and rent it :-) Hope you enjoy Lisboa, is amazing

    Roberto2014-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • A really lovely spot for exploring Alfama and the rest of Lisbon. We arrived by train from Porto and it was an easy 5min walk (although uphill) from the station. The apartment is made up for renting out (rather than where they live) but was very comfortable for 2 of us and had all the kitchen items you would need- including nice wine glasses to use whilst enjoying the view. Ana and Rita were really easy to communicate with and provided flexibility with our arrival time- they also provided a great set of suggestions for Lisbon!

    Rebecca2015-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • When we first arrived met us at the apartment and was very warm and friendly. The apartment was just as the pictures showed and was a perfect little getaway from the hustle and bustle of the bust shopping areas. We loved the beautiful view from the apartment not to mention being right next to Panteao Nacional and the Feira da Ladra. Almafa itself is a little quieter than the other areas in Lisbon but the apartment is only a few minutes away from the historic Tram 28 which will take you all over the city!

    Kathy2015-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay in a cute neighborhood and about a 20 minute walk to other neighborhoods like Bairro Alto. Thought the place was so cozy, clean, and great with an amazing view of the water. We arrived earlier than check-in and were greeted by our amazing host Rita who took our bags off our hands while we wandered around sightseeing. Overall loved the place but best of all Ana and Rita were nothing but friendly and so accommodating. Highly recommend the stay with great hosts!

    Story Flat Lisbon - Alfama
    198 reviews
    Charming cozy apartment in 65m on the 4th floor, whithout elevator(a good thing to keep fit), with two bedroom (double bed and single bed). The location is very luminous and quiet, one bathroom with shower, dining-living room with sofa bed, fully furnished kitchen (execpt dishwashing machine) and a terrace with a wonderful view of Panteão Nacional and Tagus River. One child's bed is available.
    This apartment, with real wooden floors has a perfect location including the neighborhoods of historic, artistic or picturesque interest. Is right in the historic Lisbon. Moreover, by opening the windows you will hear fado being sung in one of the many fado houses of Alfama and even the arriving cruise ships welcoming their passengers to the city.
    Another plus, you are very near from some facilities,such as a free car parking lot and and several market stores where you can find all kind of products. There is a police station in a very close distance. As the historical heart of Lisbon and therefore a touristic magnet Alfama has many restaurants and small shops of all the city and Portugal have to offer. Within less than 10-20 minutes walking you may: - Get lost down Alfama narrow roads and picturesque squares. - On Tuesdays and Saturdays in the morning Lisbon flee market (feira da ladra) is just 300 meters away, a great place for a less typical souvenir, at a bargain price. The Market is in the surrounding of the National Patheon and the Monastery of S„o Vicente, two outstanding landmarks. - Visit 3 of Lisbon vantage points and experience 3 of its most precious views at Miradouro das Portas do Sol (3min), Miradouro da Graça (5min) or Miradouro da Senhora do Monte (10min). - Walk and visit the Castle and its surroundings, Largo do Contador Mor, Rua de Santiago and use Largo dos Loios and Rua da Costa do Castelo to walk horizontaly around the Castle hill from Alfama, to the area of Castelo, Baixa and then Mouraria; each with its own richness. - Stroll gently down the hill passing by the Miradouro das Portas do Sol and Santa Luzia, the national Cathedral SÈ de Lisboa and end your short walk in Baixa or near the Tagus river at Praça do Comércio. - Walk to the newly renovated, hip and multicultural area of Martin Moniz and Intendente, passing through Mouraria and its cultural and physical heritage of dense urban settlement. - Hop on the typical Tram 28, just in front of our door, and let yourself be led through several of Lisbon neighbourhoods from Alfama, Baixa up and down from Graça all the way to Campo de Ourique. - You will find several means of transport from the indian inspired Tuk-Tuks to Segway rentals and hop-on-hop-off buses. Just make a pick! - If you enjoy nightlife, you can¥t miss the most famous Lisbon disco "Lux", which is just within 4 minutes walking (near Santa Apolonia station)
  • This is a spectacular place to stay. The location on the hill with a beautiful view to the water or the impressive Pantheon is unbeatable, two cute restaurants right underneath the apartment are perfect when you want to grab a bite or a drink. The flat is stylish and has its own cozy charme. I would come back anytime, Miguel is the perfect host.

    Maja2017-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place to stay in the heart of Alfama. Walking up the stairs is worth it when you get to the end. The terrace was a particular highlight and we loved drinks on it before going out to dinner. There's a great range of restaurants close at hand and the metro with supermarket were very handy, about 5 minutes walk. The apartment is well set up, very clean and a bit different. It's not a place for anyone not able to handle the stairs, but if you can then you get rewarded with a great apartment.

    Robert 2017-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Miguel & Madeline were perfect hosts! Our flight was very early and we met them outside the apartment at checking out time. Miguel kindly took our bags up to the apartment and we came back when they had cleaned it. They were very particular that they didn't want us to see the apartment until it was ready for us. They allowed us to check in early, and gave us information about what was going on in Lisbon. Then Miguel called the next day to check that everything was all right for us. The apartment is exactly as the photos show, but was immaculately clean. The terrace is wonderful - great for breakfast, too hot in the afternoon when we had exceptionally high temperatures, but lovely in the evening light with swifts flying round the buildings. A great place to relax with a glass of wine. There is a restaurant just outside the main door but we didn't go to it. The old town of Alfama, with its twisting, narrow streets is on the doorstep. Just wander - lots of hills! - but if you get lost, you know if you keep going down you will eventually come back to the area of the apartment. There are several small stores selling necessities on Rua dos Remedios, which starts just outside at the junction of the roads. The station for going to places in the east is at the bottom of the hill, as is the rank for the very cheap taxis. There are other stations - I don't know much about them and we didn't use the metro or buses or trams. But we did take a much more expensive tuktuk up to the castle - we had started walking up the hill but ti was so very hot that we took one that was passing. The castle wasn't great but the views from there were. We spent a day at the Gulbenkian Museum - it has art from the Egyptian era right up to the twentieth century. It was air conditioned, which was wonderful!!! Every restaurant we ate at - all different kinds - served wonderful food and everyone we met, apart from one mad, old, overtaking taxi driver, was welcoming and helpful and friendly. We just LOVED Lisbon and shall probably be back!

    Susan2017-06-15T00:00:00Z

  • Miguel and Madeline's place is amazing! My husband and I just spent a long weekend there and we loved it. The location of the apartment is perfect - away from the touristy hotels, and in a very cool neighbourhood with great restaurants and bars. We arrived quite late on Thursday and Miguel kindly met us and gave us some tips on where to go and things to see. He was also kind enough to check in on us throughout the weekend. The apartment itself is incredible! Very clean, modern and has a beautiful view from the balcony upstairs. The location is also perfect - safe neighbourhood with friendly people and close to some incredible sights. I'd highly recommend the Brazilian bar downstairs - amazing sangria! We will definitely be back and would stay at Miguel and Madeline's place again. Thanks both for the incredible accommodation! xx

    Mollie2017-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • The communication with Miguel and Madeline was good and we were met by Miguel as planned. He showed us the apartment and told us about the area. It is a very nice apartment that corresponds exactly to the description and photos. The apartment is very good and centrally located in Alfama within walking distance of the Metro. We will not hesitate to recommend the apartment and Miguel and Madeline and would surely like to rent the apartment the next time the trip goes to Lisbon

    Jørgen2017-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment. Perfect location. Lovely host. It did take us a while to get the shower temperature right. With this in mind, we would suggest to ask Miguel how to do this on your arrival. We couldn't fire up the oven, but it wasn't a major issue. We just used the microwave instead. Again, ask Miguel on your arrival to demonstrate if you think you will use it. Next time we go to Lisbon we will definitely stay there, and we will recommend it to everybody we know, who is going to Lisbon too.

    Our studio is located in the heart of Alfama, the ancientest and trendiest neighbourhood of Lisbon. It was recently renovated and it is close to the main attractions in the city. We offer free pocket internet!
    -------------------------- Pick up at airport ---------------------------- If we are available we'd pick you up in the airport. We would also provide you with some tips about what to visit and what to do in the city. The Apartment Our cosy studio is located in the heart of Alfama and has been fully renovated. You'd find a modern kitchen fully equipped, a living/bedroom, a walking closet and a modern bathroom with a shower cabin with jets Situated in the groundfloor, the apartment is just a few metres away from some of the city's most popular sites: the Castle, the 28-tram line, the Sé Church, the riverbank, the Portas do Sol Lookout, Feira da Ladra fleamarket, Baixa, Terreiro do Paço... Decoration details are important for us and we tried to merge a classical decor with modern and confortable amenities, preserving a feel of traditional Lisbon neighbourhoods!
    Alfama is the most picturesque district of Lisbon. From the Middle Age to modern times, the neighbourhood has had a special relationship with the river and fado, the world heritage song of Lisbon.

Here you can expect to come to a small square with a old church, patios and stairways with amazing shapes, lookouts where you can have a breathtaking view of the city. Do not miss Igreja de Santo Estevão terraces!
  • Very nice apartment and also a very nice welcome from Paulo! The apartment is located in a small (i.e. very cozy and lovely) alley in a nice part of town. Easy to walk from the trainstation also;)

Paulo and Malfada were great hosts. Appreciate Paulo's quick response with all my questions. Thanks to Malfada for meeting me at the Museum to walk to the apartment together. I hope I get back to Lisbon some day. Thanks for making my stay so enjoyable

    Jan2016-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Rute was very accommodating in working around some problems related to arrival that were not related to her in any way. She came late in the evening to open the apartment and was very kind and understanding. The apartment is in a great location, but it could be a bit challenging with more than a couple of suitcases. There is not direct automobile access, which is probably the reason why there is an offer for airport pickup. A taxi driver took a long time and circuitous route to find a reasonably close location. The accommodations were comfortable and gave a really good sense of what it would be like to live in the area. Everything was as expected. There is a GREAT restaurant with Fado music nearby and the subway/train station is an easy 10-15 minute walk for easy access to the rest of the city. I would definitely recommend this location.

    Maria 2016-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Paulo is a charming man, although our flight was an hour late he was as promised at the airport to pick us up, the studio apartment was also charming and absolutely as described, I would recommend Paulo's apartment for your city break in Lisbon

  • Pierre's place really is in the heart of the Alfama. Restaurants and shops are just outside the door. And it was​ a quick walk to other neighborhoods in Lisbon. Everything was as it should be at the apartment. Clean and comfortable. I had a great stay. My one recommendation... bring earplugs - they love to party at night!

    Dave2017-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • The location of Pierre's house is fantastic. So close to the different attractions in Alfama and to bus and metro stations. Pierre's friend Bertrand was very punctual when meeting us and checking us in, and was easily reachable by phone for any questions. Definitely great value, and the apartment is safe and has all the basics you would expect.

  • Very nice house in very nice area of Lisbon! Many great restaurants in the neighbourhood. The bed was a bit small for us (we are used to a bed of 1.80) but apart from that we would highly recommend to stay at Pierre's place!

  • We really loved our stay at Sweet Home Alfama. The apartment was spacious, sunny, quiet and warm. There is really nice vintage design which meets modern renovation so well. Location is great, everything in walking distance. Of you stay in Lisbon, I highly recommend staying in Alfama. The host even arranged baby crib for our daughter.

  • The flat is much bigger than we expected. We had a great stay.

  • I am very pleased with the stay at Pierre's apartment. The apartment is in a very good location in a beautiful neighborhood. Very close to the Fado Museum and the city center. Contact Head of House Bertrand also I think is very good. I spent a very nice time and drove away sadly.

  • Filipa is a great host! The apartment looked exactly like the pictures: it's cute, cosy and very clean. Location is perfect. Filipa was very responsive and accommodating. I would totally recommend this apartment.

    Jade2017-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Cute little apartment right in the middle of Alfama area! Very good place to stay in Lisboa. The area is quite quiet during night because there is no restaurants on that street. Only minus is that there is a bit hot in the apartment but I guess it is the same in all of the apartments on that area. The people of Alfama are really nice. Highly recommend this place!

    Heidi2016-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in Filipa's Apartment! It is indeed cosy and very comfortable and its position is perfect to live the real Portuguese spirit and feel the village-like atmosphere of Alfama. The description of the apartment is pretty accurate, and we found everything we needed in there! Mrs Tininha treated us in a lovely way, but unfortunately we didn't taste her typical Ginginha. Everything was worth the price, if we should ever return we will surely book Filipa's place again!

    Fabrizio2016-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay here! What a lovely place. Filipa is a really nice host: she gave us information about how te get there, nice places to visit or eat. She also helpt us by giving us information for the next part of our trip. And since the weather was really hot she even brought an fan along:-) The appartment had a really nice atmosphere and to us felt like home. The location is perfect since it's on walking distance to the centre, but also close to the public transport. Great for daytrips to Sintra for example. Wendy & Rick

    Vincent Carlo2017-06-06T00:00:00Z
  • Although we haven't met Filipa in person, she was extremely helpful and willing to give us advice. The location of the house is amazing and I would highly reccomend her as a host!

    Phanos2017-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • The small duplex apartment was ideally located in the heart of old Alfama near to the cathedral, the castle and all the nice typically Portuguese restaurants. Filipa made us very welcome, even leaving a bottle of wine as a gift, sending us recommendations of places to see and visit and was always very responsive in case we had any question. We had a very good stay thanks to her!

    Vanessa2017-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Location is great to explore Alfama though its on top of a steep climb among narrow streets. Its to be expected in Alfama. The apt. is cozy but really nice.

    The Alfama apartment is suitable for 3 people, despite having one room has 1 double bed, and a sofa bed, a bathroom, fully equipped kitchen. The Alfama neighborhood is the most touristic districts of Lisbon, its tiny houses and its typical restaurants where he sings Fado is what most attract tourists.
  • It was a very nice and clean appartement to stay. The location is perfect! A very cute district with lovely neighbours. There are a lot of restaurants in the neighbourhood, but no disco's. So the evenings are cost but not loud late in the evening. The location was nearby the centrum of Lissabon. We walked everything from the appartement. But there also is a Metro nearby (we never used it)

    Tessa2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great location in the heart of Alfama Well, that's all advantages. In bonus you get flat on the firs floor with no day light, problems with hot water and internet (fixed next day), bad soundproofing and a host, who's not respond your messages. Person who will give you a keys (neighbor) doesn't speaks English and will charge you for additional money (for a late check-in) contrary to your previous agreements with a host. Problem was solved only after appeal to Airbnb Resolution Center

  • Isabel est une hôtesse très accueillante et accommodante. Son appartement est très propre et très bien situé dans le quartier pittoresque d'Alfama. Nous avons beaucoup aimé!!

    Elizabeth2017-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • El apartamento cumple con su propósito: está limpio, cumple con los servicios mínimos y está cerca del centro, por lo que la estancia en él resulta digna. No obstante, hay inconvenientes como el Wi-Fi, que funcionaba en contadas ocasiones y, cuando lo hacía, era muy lento. El agua caliente funciona, aunque a veces había que hacer varios intentos con el calentador para ello. Nos pareció un poco caro para el tamaño del inmueble, pero también es cierto que reservamos con poca antelación en una semana de alta ocupación. Isabel, la dueña, nos esperó pacientemente a pesar de que llegamos tarde por problemas en el camino. Eso sí, cuidado con llegar después de las 20 horas, pues se cobra 20 € de recargo.

    Our cozy ground floor studio is located in one of the oldest Lisbon neighborhoods, 5 minutes walking distance from Baixa (city center) and 8 minutes from the Subway or Train station. This House is perfect to visit and experience Lisbon.
    Our brand new studio is located in XVII century building but it was renovated in 2015 with the intent to make it has comfortable and stylish has possible punting together the antiquate vibe of the building with a brand new stylish apartment. During the renovations we found a II A.C century Roman Fish-Salting Plant that we preserved and prepared for display with glass floors, this way you will be staying in a XVII century building sleeping on II A.C. century ruins having once in a life time experience!
    Staying in the city center and waking up to church bells or walking home at night listening to Fado in one of the many restaurants or bars is one of the best feeling in the world.
  • This listing exceeded all our expectations. The location was great, the apartment was clean and simply & beautifully decorated. We always looked forward to coning back home; and yes, we even called it home. Miguel was awesome! He was always so quick with responding to any questions or queries we had. He was also really accommodating and helpful. He helped us organise transport to and from the airport, gave us good tips on the city etc. When we first arrived, we were greeted by his dad, Aberto, he was so great! He welcomed us well and gave us great local advice. We ran into him a few times coming to /leaving the apartment and always had a friendly chat with him. Miguel and his dad are such nice people and the apartment was perfect. WHEN (not if) I come back to Lisbon, I'd definitely stay with them again.

    Nadine2015-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed with Miguel before, so won't repeat my earlier positive comments. Once again, my experience was very pleasant, in a quiet, well-located apartment that offers consistent quality.

    Luc2015-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

  • We had a great stay in Lisbon! The apartment is located in a very nice area with walking distance to restaurants, bars, tourist attractions and to the tram and the metro. When we booked the room we got an confirmation directly and Miguel also helped with transport, an electric taxi, from the airport. His father, who is very nice and helpful, met us when we arrived. He also gave us tips of sightseeings. Since we were two friends travelling together we wanted to use the sofa bed. Unfortunately it was broken. We contacted the host and got quick assistance with more linnen, so everything worked out fine. The electric plug went out, but we could manage to restart and Miguels father was again very helpful. Thanks for a very nice stay. Cathrine & Jessica

    Brooke2017-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great place to stay! The apartment is well equipped and we loved the loft and the ruins visible in the sitting area. It's in a great location, within walking distance to the big tourist attractions and shopping areas, but it`s on a quiet side-street. Just a few doors down are really great restaurants. Alberto was incredibly nice and helpful. He gave us tons of information on all the great things to find in Lisboa. Miguel was very helpful in arranging services like hiring a car from the airport to the apartment and was incredibly patient with all of my questions. The only minor problem was that the walls and windows are quite thin, so although the neighborhood is quiet the majority of the time, if there is any noise on the street you will hear it. So, if you are a light or late sleeper, bring earplugs. We will definitely look this place up if we return to Lisbon!

    LaRae2016-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was very nice in a wonderful neighbourhood. It looked exactly like the pictures. We had a very nice stay. Miguel perfectly arranged the airport pickup and the key transfer. It is in the centre so you hear some noises but just bring some earplugs and you will be fine.

  • Rui's apartment is really lovely and in a great area of Lisbon. It has everything you need for a relaxing stay and we spent a lot of time there. Rui is a great host and was always there to answer any questions we might have. He also made a big effort to come and see us and say hello and that was nice as well. The apartment is a five minute walk to Tram 28 which is a great route to see everything in Alfalma, Baixa and Chiado areas. It is also ten minutes walk from Santa Apolónia train station. There are lots of restaurants nearby also. There is a lovely little restaurant downstairs which does really lovely focaccia and great coffee as well. We really enjoyed our stay, it was our first time in Lisbon and we will definitely be back.

    Gerard2015-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyed our stay, lovely apartment in a lovely neighborhood! All as described, a bit on the small side, really best for a small family but nonetheless a great place. All very modern and clean, a nice touch with the nespresso machine - for the lover of a wake up espresso. Our host was very attentive and ensured we had a great stay. Lots of great small restaurant options in the neighborhood within walking distance.

    Alina2017-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Super well located apartment a bit off the beaten track which is a pleasure. More quite than being in the thick of things. Super AMAZING restaurant directly across the street Santa Clara Dos Cogumelos! Specializing in mushroom dishes. Great host and terrific views. Jim

    Jim2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • We slept in the apartment with five adults, it fits perfectly. Three stairs up, it's a beautify apartment. Rui was very friendly. I would recommend this place to everyone. The view is great, the old neighborhood is a great place to stay.

    Babet2016-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Rui was very helpful. The views from the apartment were great, just as advertised. The location is close to Alfalma and reasonably close to the Castle. The air conditioning worked well. The ikea-type furnishings were sharp and functional. Great little cafe next door. We would recommend to friends interested in this area of Lisbon. Good stay. Good host.

    Erik2016-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Rui's place is beautiful and in a fantastic location! We loved being able to look out onto the pantheon and the fair in the square, yet it was wonderful and quiet inside. Amazing location to walk around the city, with great places to eat nearby. Would stay here again!

    Caroline2017-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Located in the Eastern part of the Alfama neighbourhood, right opposite the magnificent National Pantheon, Rui's modern and stylish apartment offers breathtaking views across the river. Only a five-minute walk (downhill!) from Santa Apolonia railway and metro station, the location provides excellent access to public transport (e.g. take bus 728, which runs along the waterfront, connecting remote areas such as the Oceanario and Belém). If you're coming from the airport, the easiest way to get to the apartment is to buy a "viva viagem" top-up card at the ticket machine and top it up, then take the red metro to the final stop (S. Sebastiao) and change there for the blue one to Santa Apolonia; from there it's a 10-minute uphill walk (with stairs, not ideal if you carry heavy luggage - then it's better to take a taxi). There's a supermarket at the train station (open till 10pm) as well as some corner shops in the area. If you're into second-hand stuff, make sure not to miss the flea market on Saturdays and Tuesdays, which you will stumble right into when exiting the building. Rui was friendly and helpful and fast to respond from the very beginning and gave us an overview of some of the main sights and tips for restaurants in the area on arrival (if you like mushrooms, you have to try Santa Clara dos Cogumelos, in the old market building just across the road! There's also a really nice café just next door, ideal for a delicious breakfast in the sun, while enjoying the view towards the park opposite). The apartment itself is spacious (two bedrooms, living room, kitchen/dining area and large bathroom with double shower), yet cozy (heating and fireplace!), flooded with light all day, and clean and equipped with all the mod cons (good wifi, two big smart TV screens, dishwasher, Nespresso machine...). We couldn't wish for more. We had a fantastic time at Rui's place and would recommend it to any Lisbon traveller!

  • This apartment was very spacious and comfortable for our group of eight. It's in a great location and the management company was incredibly accessible at all times. The team was very friendly and helpful at a moment's notice, answering all our questions and even coming over to change a lightbulb that went out!

  • Amazing and beautiful apartment with tons of space for a big group (we were 7, but probably could have fit even more ppl). The neighborhood is also conveniently located for walking around Lisbon and visiting some of the excellent places nearby (like Gelato Therapy -- so good!). The one thing to keep in mind is that the front rooms (facing the church) can get a bit noisy at night and you'll want the windows open if it is peak summer. Shouldn't be an issue the rest of the year though.

    Daniel2016-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • we had a fantastic stay, 4 days/3 nights with 8 persons. There's enough single beds even for a large group like ours and many toilets and bathrooms, perfect location in the heart of Lisbon (Alfama), Yania was a very good host, explained everything and helped as to find restaurants, thank you, Yania!

    Marcel2015-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious apartment in the hart of the historic town of Lisboa. We were 7 people but it can easily sleep more people. The wooden floor (long massive timber pilings) was a bit dirty but I guess this is due to historic architecture of the house.

  • We had a lovely stay at the apartment. The location couldn't have been better for us, close to the main squares and transport, trams and buses. The apartment is beautifully decorated and spacious. A real home from home! With much needed air-con, and quiet at night. Close to lots of restaurants and little shops, and easy walking distance for exploring all over the lovely city! Would definitely recommend, we didn't want to leave!

  • I would highly recommend this stylish apartment in a good location.

    Bridget2017-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice Appartement in a good part of the town, right in the center. Very nice Host.

    Tobias2017-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • Joao and his wife welcomed us in the apartment and came to see us off. They were really friendly and hospitable and full of good advice. The apartment is beautifully restructured with all the commodities, and is excellent for 4 people. It's in a great location at the edge of Baixa, and close to nice restaurants in Alfama. We had a great time. I recommend both the apartment and the hosts fully.

    Yodan2017-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Joao's place is really beautiful and having the lift and A/C made things really comfortable since it was still almost 90 degrees in Lisbon in October! Check in was easy, Joao met us at the apartment and gave us a walk through. We arrived early but were able to leave our luggage in the apartment while they finished cleaning. We loved the design of the rooms and bathrooms and the cute little terrace (not much of a view but a lovely spot anyway!) It really was just as nice as it looks in the photos! There is construction next door but the windows are well insulated so we didn't hear any of it. Location is quite central for the Bairro Chiado and Alfama, pretty quiet at night. Highly recommend!

    Briana2017-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Joao's apartment is absolutely gorgeous! I stayed with my family for a week in late July. The apartment looks just like what you see in the pictures. Everything is new and comfortable. Just the perfect place to relax after a day of sightseeing. The location is perfect. It sits in the Baixa district within minutes to Chiado on one side and Alfama on the other. Just minutes from many iconic sites! Praca da Figueira is just around the corner with Praca D. Pedro IV just a couple of minutes further on. The world famous Tram 28 is just down the street! Praca do Comercio is a leisurely 10 min walk and Castelo S. Jorge is just 15 mins walk away up the hill! Restaurants are everywhere and access to the Rossio Metro is just a couple of minutes away. Joao was a great host who even organised our transport to and from the airport! I will certainly use this apartment again next time I'm in Lisboa!

  • The apartment is very nice and conveniently located . The breakfasts on the balcony with a view on Tagus were amazing. Becarefull, tourism tax of 10 euros not specified in the ad.

  • Really sweet apartment with amazing views. Easy communication with host.

    Gail2017-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, as in the photos. Beautiful view and very quiet area in the evenings so perfect for people who want to relax and be close to the Castelo. As others said, it is not suitable for people that have issues walking at least 200m in a very steep cobblestone street (as taxis do not enter in the neighbourhood) and climbing 3 floors of stairs. But if you don't have issues this place worth it! I would recommend this place and back again if I travel to Lisbon.

    Erica2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Susana's apartment was absolutely wonderful. Located inside the castle, it is lively during the day and quiet at night. It is close to many restaurants and shops. Everything was exactly as pictured/described. The best part is the balcony with an amazing view! I would not hesitate to stay here again--- I loved it!

    Amy2016-10-14T00:00:00Z

    David2017-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Neat and Nice, easy check in, practical kitschen, the best view in the city with a stort distance to everything one would like to se in Lisbon. The only downside is that the bed is a bit hard and a sardin-can size shower, but well worth It

    Hampus2017-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Although we only stayed one night (Not long enough!) Our stay was terrific! The apt was very clean and comfortable with amazing views! (Pics don't do it justice) Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet Susana personally but she was very accessible and made it very easy for us to check in/out, get taxi info, etc. Wonderful hospitality! Cosy Castle Apts will be our first choice when returning to Lisbon. Thanks again!

    Alfama Burgoternura Terrace is an amazing bright and sunny apartment with 180º river and city view! Indulge yourself with the best view of the river and the city that you can find in this area of Lisbon. This is a glamorous ground floor apartment strategically located right in the center of Lisbon historic area. Alfama Burgoternura terrace apartment is one of the few in one of the oldest and most typical neighbourhoods of Lisbon ( Alfama/Sé) with structure to receive groups or families.
    An exclusive apartment, of Pombaline architecture, located in the most nobel part of Alfama/ Sé neighbourhood, completely restored and decorated, with unique details, by its owners so that it has all the amenities of a modern apartment but without losing the charm of a secular apartment. Located in a building totally recovered, with an amazing terrace and car access, Alfama terrace apartment its a modern and spacious apartment, for up to 6 persons. With 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, one suite with 1 double bed (160cmx 200 cm) and a bathroom ensuite with tub bath with a fantastic view and terrace access +1 bedroom with 2 single beds (90cmx 200 cm), + 1 bedroom with 2 single beds * (80 cmx 200cm and possibility of put it together to make a double bed on requests) , another bathroom (with shower) and one more common bathroom, a spacious and fully equipped kitchen, and a beautiful and very comfortable dining and living room with a gorgeous 180º river and city view and terrace access !

This apartment is located within a Lisbon of hidden nooks, corners and narrow streets where here and there you can hear the sound of Fado, where sightseeing is worth every penny of your trip. Being a neighborhood full of palaces, churches, museums, antique shops, art galleries, viewpoints and gardens, it has, at the same time, the agitation of a neighborhood which is full of life and energy and which is in fashion. Lose yourself among the museums, beautiful shops, amazing restaurants, bars, esplanades, have a drink at one of the terraces cafés, feel the local soul, all this just a step away from home! I´m looking forward to welcoming you in Lisbon!
  • This place is as lovely (or more) as it looks in the photos. It is such a great combination of elegance (nice towels, luxurious shower/bathtub, inviting kitchen for cooking and sharing a drink) and absolute comfort ( super comfortable beds, kitchen fully equipped for any cooking you may get the urge to do, large laundry drying rack for larger groups or kids, sofa perfect for hanging out). The location is also ideal. You have everything within walking distance, including a little mercearia just up the steps and around the corner where you can get all the little essentials like bread, eggs, toilet paper, etc. The highlight of the apartment, though, is all the windows on the balcony side and the balcony itself. The lighting and the view are really spectacular! If this place is available, grab it. You'll love it!

    Diane2017-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was just as we expected it to be and the outside terrace space was lovely. We had never been to Lisbon and being based in Alfama was the right choice for our family - we loved the history and exploring the winding streets. We would choose to stay here again.

    Christine2017-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • A really lovely appartment in a charming and yet calm neighbourhood. We enjoyed the terrace with the wonderful view to the sea and over the city. The hosts Joao and ANA were most helpful and arranger for a pick up at the AirPort. We would love to come back!

    Merete2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant location. Fabulous apartment. Lovely terrace.

    Sam2017-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious and comfortable apartment. View from patio is breathtaking and it's hard to leave it to explore the city outside the door! Giant kitchen, living room with plenty of seating and nice bedrooms. Fast wifi. Really remarkable place to spend a few days or longer. Can't wait to return.

    Emily2017-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place to stay in Lisbon. Cosy roof terrace.

    Claudia2017-04-16T00:00:00Z

    Chris2017-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a most enjoyable time at Alfama apartment. We were greeted by the gorgeous Rita who was so very helpful and full of the best advice on how to get about, where to eat, what to see and all other information in between. She was brilliant. The apartment location was amazing...right in the heart of the old area, restaurants all around and close access to the 28 tram. Very comfortable with great facilities and quiet at night. Will definitely stay there again!

    8735/AL Situado no coração de Alfama, com o electrico 28 à porta, este apartamento permite-lhe disfrutar do mais genuíno ambiente de Lisboa, no conforto de uma casa calma e sem vizinhos, pois este apartamento triplex ocupa todo o pequeno e típico edifício. Ao entrar a porta deste apartamento, deixando lá fora a movimentada rua das Escolas Gerais, onde o electrico 28 passa há mais de um século, encontra à sua espera um acolhedor apartamento pensado ao mais ínfimo pormenor para lhe dar o máximo de conforto. Subindo um pequena escada, mesmo ao jeito das típicas casas de Alfama, tem o primeiro patamar deste triplex, um pequeno hall que lhe dá as boas-vindas. No patamar seguinte, vai encontrar a casa-de-banho e uma acolhedora sala com kitchenette, equipada com tudo aquilo que necessita para passar agradáveis dias em Lisboa. Da janela pode avistar o electrico, que o saúda e trás o espírito de Lísboa. No último piso, tem o acolhedor e romântico quarto nas águas furtadas e com uma grande janela aberta a Alfama e ao rio Tejo! Aqui sim, está em Lisboa! Na Lisboa secular, tradicional, histórica, do Tejo e do Fado. No que respeita ao bairro onde se insere, podemos dizer que Alfama é única! Não só por ser o bairro mais antigo de Lisboa, mas também por ser a zona das varinas, das sardinhas, do fado vadio cantado pelas ruas, da roupa estendida às janelas, das marchas populares... Alfama tem em si séculos de histórias e estórias que só quem cá passa consegue viver e sentir! - Não é permitido fumar no interior do apartamento - Não são permitidas crianças no apartamento
  • The apartment looks lovely and was very clean. Everything was in excellent shape. Ana and Fatima were the kindest hosts, communication was seemless. We really enjoyed it and recommend them wholeheartedly.

    David2016-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is a great size for two people and in a great location. The Alfama district is lovely with many historical sites and monuments as well as shops and cafes all nearby. We had a car but with Ana's help found some public parking for 10€ a day that was about 10-15 minutes from the apartment. There are a lots of steep hills in some places, so prepare to get some cardio workouts in and bring comfortable shoes and clothes! The castle is worth the entry fee to spend a few hours, and be sure to catch a Fado performance!

    Tony2017-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! The location is great and near great spots. Ana & Fatima were wonderful host and had SO MANY great suggestions. I do wish I had another day or two in Lisbon. I became addicated to the pastries that were left and had to find more throughout the city.

    Mary Beth2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Ana and Fatima have a wonderful apartment. The location, information, and amenities are perfect. This is a wonderful home base when in Lisbon.

    Matthew2016-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Ana & Fatima are very nice hosts. They reply very quickly to any kind of questions and have been very helpful all the time. We stayed 1 week in their apartement and we felt like home. The apartement is in the centre of Lisboa and very close to everything. The popular "Tram 28" stops directly in front of the house, which is very handy. The central station is also very close - 10 Min. by foot. We recommend to take a cab from the airport to the flat (it´s not expensive - around 12€) - there are everywhere cubblestones in Lisboa and the way to the flat is a bit steep - thus it´s not so easy with a suitcase ;-) During our stay there was a building lot next to the house, which was very loud and they started at 8am in the morning. That was the only thing, which wasn´t that good - but if you are not sensitive to noise or will leave the house every morning at around 8am to visit Lisboa, it will be fine! Anyway the building lot will not be there all the time... All in all the apartement is strongly recommended and we really enjoyed our stay! PS.: If you are going to Lisboa rent a bike and ride to Belém. It´s such a nice trip and worth it! Thanks Ana & Fatima, we had a great time! Kind regards Calotta & Sonja

    Sonja2015-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely apartment! The spaciousness and airy feel of the apartment created a great environment. The tram outside reminded us that we were in the heart of Alfama and was not noticeable at night. The air conditioning definitely came in handy during an unseasonably hot October weekend (90F!). We loved having so many great restaurants and pastry shops around the corner. The street itself was quiet but within a 5min walk to the bustling Portas do Sol and nearby shopping. Lastly- the touches from Ana & Fátima were perfect: pastries, local liqueur, a washer AND dryer, and a personal introduction to Alfama from Ana were amazing!

    Anna2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • the apartment is amazing, so comfort and cozy. The passing train could make some noise but it's ok for us. the owner is warm-hearted and provides us with egg tart and wine. high recommended this apartment!

    Tianjun2016-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay. The apartment is just as described and pictured- very clean, very beautiful. The neighborhood was charming and very safe and there was a beautiful Café five steps from the front door that served us a wonderful breakfast. We felt it close to transportation and local attractions. Comfortable bed and very clean. Host was prompt with responding to questions. Would visit again!

    Bright and spacious (75m2 or 807 ft2), fully renovated apartment in Alfama with a privileged view over the river and Alfama´s rooftops. The apartment is at street level, easily accessible. Alfama is Lisbon´s oldest district. It has kept its charm and authenticity, attracting visitors from all over. The apartment is set on two floors decorated with charm and taste. The bedroom sleeps 2 adults and the sofa bed in the living room can sleep 2 more. Both floors have bathrooms with showers. 55753/AL
    The apartment is a loft located in a fully renovated building maintaining the old charm of wooden structures and high ceilings. Unlike most apartments in Alfama, you only have a small flight of stairs to reach it, while having a fantastic view from both levels. The first floor has a living room divided in two separate areas. One has a comfortable sofa and the other has a comfortable sofa bed with an adjoining bathroom with shower and natural light. The open kitchen is equipped with main appliances, including a washing machine and Nespresso. On the second floor, you´ll find the double bedroom with a comfortable chaise longue to relax and a bathroom with shower. There´s a AC unit in the bedroom or a fan for those that prefer not to use air conditioning. The view from the ceiling window offers the river and Alfama´s rooftops to enjoy. There´s a full length mirror and plenty of hangers. You´ll find a writing desk. Wifi is available through out the apartment. Cable Tv with over 100 channels in the ground floor. A steam roll to press clothes and a hair drier is available. (AL27099)
    This apartment is set in the heart of Alfama, Lisbon´s most bewitching district. This is the city´s oldest quarter. You´ll be ideally located to explore its narrow streets and crooked lanes that make up the delightful maze stretching from the castle to the Tagus estuary. Alfama’s beguiling attractions include some of the city´s most important buildings such as the Castelo de São Jorge, the Sé Cathedral, the National Pantheon and Saint Anthony’s Church. The Tram 28 passes by and will take you up to neighbouring Graça, a mesmerising residential district with a colourful character.
  • Santi’s place is a beautifully stylish apartment right at the heart of Alfama with stunning views over the river from the bedroom window. Within easy walking distance there is an abundance of cafes and restaurants. Despite being located in such a lively area the apartment was really quiet at night, added to that, the extremely comfortable bed made for a very restful stay. Santi's check-in communication with us was very good and really helpful. We would have no hesitation recommending Santi’s apartment as a great base from which to explore Lisbon.

    Pat2017-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. Very comfortable and quiet. Very nicely decorated. Could be perfect if 20€ charge for check-in at 10:10pm was waived.

    Nicolas2017-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay ar Santi's apartment. There was someone waiting for us when we arrived, guided us through the house and even gave us extra tips for our stay in Lisbon. The apartment is exactly as the pictures and had all necessaries for our long weekend, including great wifi and even a sound system downstairs! Would definitely recommend :)

    Jan2017-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • My friend and I had a wonderful stay in Santi's Alfama River loft apartment! The location is great as it's in the centre of Alfama - the oldest part of Lisbon so it was surrounded by the most beautiful buildings and viewpoints, and was only a 10 min walk to the centre of town. Check in was hassle free and we were greeted by Santi's friend who was really lovely and helpful at showing us round and recommending us places to go. The apartment itself was clean, beautifully decorated and had no issues. Great stay would definitely recommend!! :)

    Anna2017-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had an awesome time. Natalia on the behalf of Santi was on time, she was welcoming and helped us a lot giving us tips where to go and what to do. Everything was perfect - we recommend it for sure :)

    Daniel2017-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • This flat was one of the best places we stayed out of all the Airbnb we stayed in the past. We loved the flat, the location and the neighborhood, and conveniences and access to many places. Santi was always available to reach out through (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or Airbnb messenger (there was one issue at the flat but Santi was able to get someone quickly to fix the problem). The place has a nice view of the beautiful city of Alfama and the river, is quite, and in the night time, you can also hear a live fado music (not loud but softly) from the window. There are many great restaurants, bars, supermarkets, and cafes near by. The tram station for Tram #28, which we most used, is just 2 minutes away (you have to climb up 50-steps to get there but in Alfama, you have to always climb up or down steep hills or stairs to go to anywhere). Uber can come to near by (right by top of the 50-steps stairs). Some taxi services can drop you off right in front of the flat (drivers need to have a special access to get into certain area of Alfama). The taxi company Santi recommended could access and drop us off in front of the flat so we didn't have to carry our luggages up and down the hills and stairs. Although we couldn't meet Santi, she made our stay very comfortable. We loved the place and would definitely want to stay again if we have a chance to come back to Lisboa.

  • We had a lovely stay in this beautiful, compact and well furnished apartment. It was in a fantastic location on a quiet street, which allowed us to walk everywhere. There were lots of lovely restaurants nearby, though we also cooked some fantastic meals in the super well equiped kitchen. The only slight issue we had with the apartment was the thin walls and front door, which meant we could hear our neighbours coming and going, as well as moving about in their own apartments. Only a small issue though, as there was no loud music or parties. We would recommend this beautiful apartment and city to everyone!

  • We had a fantastic stay at the apartment, which is located centrally and done up very tastefully. In addition to the aesthetics, the apartment was extremely clean and tidy. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and charming - they were timely in their replies and were available to offer their help and suggestions. We can't recommend this place more highly! Thank you for a memorable stay.

  • The apartment was very comfortable and equipped with all things you might need during your stay in Lisbon. The apartment is clean and modern too. Thanks to the good isolation the noise from the street could not be heard when you close the windows. Our host (Diana) was very helpful during our stay. Her recommendations for restaurants and other handy places were very helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Lisbon.

    Luuk2017-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • My mother and I spent a wonderful time in Lisbon! The communication with Diana as well as check-in and check-out was totally easy. We found a beautiful and recently renovated brand new apartment which includes everything we needed for a pleasant stay (incl. towels, bed linen, coffee, tea, saop, etc.). It is perfectly located in Alfma, one of the most beautiful districts of Lisbon, with very short distances to the river, restaurants and sightseeing. It's only 3 minutes to the next train station "Santa Apolonia" which is very useful if you want to continue your journey to Porto as we did. Besides of all these great things we would like to point out the best part of this apartment: the host! Diana provided us with a city map and took a lot of time to tell us all her hints and tips for restaurants, markets and best places to visit. All these information was extremely helpful for us and guarantied an unforgettable time in this beautiful city. Thanks a lot for everything Diana! We fell in love with Lisbon and really hope to come back in some time. All the best from Germany! Sophie

  • The place was fantastic. If you want to stay in an authentic Portuguese area then this place is excellent. Walking is necessary if you want to go to the main areas (train, beach, markets etc) so would recommend you consider this. The place itself was faultless - Diana was so helpful and really appreciated her help checking us in and recommending some great places to visit. Would definitely stay again. Thank you

  • This was our first Airbnb experience, and we're so happy we did this. Diana was very cheery, and greeted us with many restaurant and site recommendations, which supplemented the useful guide previously e-mailed to us. The location was absolutely perfect, inside the narrow streets of the old Alfama neighborhood, and very close to transportation (metro, buses, trams), particularly Sta. Apolonia station. Restaurants, bars, fado, cafes and mini markets were abundant. The apartment was very clean and modern, with air conditioning and a washing machine, which was useful. A Laundromat with drying machines was nearby. There was a little balcony which could be used to hang wet clothes, where you could also see the River Tejo. We loved the windows, which cut out every sound from outside. The door lock was a little tricky, giving us a problem only once getting in.

  • Perfect place to stay in Lisboa. Location is great – around the corner is metro station and train station. Flat is very comfortable, pretty and quiet. Diana as a host will tell you a lot of useful tips. I recommend this flat and hope to come back soon.

    Great apartment. Warm welcome any great information was given to us to orient us to Lisbon. Very central location. Compact kitchen - more suited to light meal prep by one person. Comfortable room.
