The Alfama Quarter is the oldest one in Lisbon, and it was founded by the Arabs who named it “Al-hama” (the fountains). It is difficult to believe that this humble neighborhood was once the most desirable quarter of Lisbon. For the Moors, the tightly packed alleyways around the fortified castle comprised the whole city.
The buildings survived the 1755 earthquake and although there are no Moorish houses still standing, the quarter retains its kashbah-like-layout. The true charm of these quarters lies in its narrow steep streets ending in sunny squares from which there are stairways leading to typical streets and flowery alleys and fountains. This is where you can find the most genuine traditional commerce, far away from the big hypermarkets, with neighborhood groceries, fruit stands, modest restaurants, and all purpose stores. The only way to get to know these quarters is to stroll through them. Embark on this adventure, let your intuition guide you and get lost in these streets and alleys to the sound of Fado.
Above Alfama the imposing, majestic and sober Castelo de São Jorge (Castle of Saint Jorge), crowns Lisbon´s most important eastern hill. This natural vantage point, was a defensive stronghold and royal palace until the end of the 16th century.
Other Attractions are a few steps away. You will need to climb just a few streets to find yourself in front of the Pantheon, or at the Flea Market (If you are interested in antique stuff and second hand bargains you can find almost everything at the Feira da Ladra flea Market every Saturday and Tuesday in Campo de Santa Clara). To eat there are quite a few cheap typical Portuguese tascas around, but if you are more into sophisticated stuff don´t miss the Bica do Sapato restaurant (co-owned by the actor John Malkovich), Lisbon´s hippest and trendiest restaurant, or the Faz Figura restaurant featuring Portuguese specialties and an impressive city and river views. Here, the visitor will be also close to the most recent and trendiest nightlife routes, beginning in the new Alfama fado parlours and ending up in Clube Ferroviário or at the famous and trendy Lux nightclub.

Our opinion will focus on another apartment in which we were upgraded. Located in Alfama apartment was ideal to go / come and discover Lisbon and our rythme.Tiago Francisco guests were charming, accommodating and available, however, we note some technical problems apart (a few bulbs or inter inops, TV inop, stairwell lighting inop, entry door lock inop and broken window etc ...) curiously these defects had not made an assessment of our stay and are OK to go.
Notre avis portera sur un autre appartement dans lequel nous avons été surclassés. Situé dans Alfama cet appartement était idéal pour aller/venir et découvrir Lisbonne à notre rythme.Tiago et Francisco nos hôtes ont été charmants, arrangeants et disponibles, on notera toutefois des petits problèmes techniques de l'appart (quelques ampoules ou inter inops, télé inop, éclairage cage d'escalier inop, serrure porte d'entrée inop, et fenêtre cassée etc...) curieusement ces défauts n'ont pas entaché l'appréciation de notre séjour et sommes OK pour repartir.
An excellent location to enjoy Lisboa. right in the middle of the centre. restaurants nearby. The apartment has all the necessary facilities. 2 large double bed bedrooms, bathroom, a living and kitchen. nice view over the town.
Das kleine Apartment in dem sympathischen Altstadtviertel Alfama, hat uns sehr überzeugt. Die Unterkunft war ausgezeichnet und die Lage ruhig. Man befindet sich direkt inmitten von verwinkelten Gässchen, die hinter jeder Ecke etwas neues zu bieten haben. Die Kommunikation hat auch immer recht schnell funktioniert und wenn es Probleme gab, wurden sie sofort am gleichen Tag behoben.
Kleine Lebensmittelshops in vielen Straßen, Bäcker, Fleischer, Supermarkt oder traditionelle Restaurants befinden sich nur wenige Minuten zu Fuß entfernt.
Es war ein gelungener Aufenthalt, vielen Dank!
Een heerlijk verblijf tussen de Portugezen.
Alles is aanwezig in het appartement en je loopt zo naar de meest mooie plekken.Dichtbij het charmante trammetje nr. 28!
Voor de keuken is het handig wat extra pannen te hebben.
hartelijke groet, we missen Lissabon nu al.
Dorien en Peter.
When I got to the apartment, I received a friendly and efficient manner. The apartment was all time and well equipped, although it probably was a bit shabby. View - in several directions - and the location is what makes the apartment special.
There were some deficiencies. A plate on the stove did not work. Neither did the oven. And the bath was partially working. Since it was a bit cold, it could also have been a bit more powerful ovens.
Da jeg kom til leiligheten ble jeg mottatt på en hyggelig og effektiv måte. Leiligheten var alle tiders og godt utstyrt, selv om den nok var litt nedslitt. Utsikten - i flere retninger - og beliggenheten er det som gjør leiligheten spesiell.
Det var en del mangler. En plate på komfyren virket ikke. Det gjorde heller ikke stekeovnen. Og badekaret var delvis i ustand. Siden det var litt kaldt, kunne det også vært litt kraftigere ovner.
apartment very well located in the alleys of the Alfama close to the tram No. 28, San Gorge du Chateau and Santa Apolina metro.
Accommodation own flat one shower a bit small
Be careful if you arrive after 22h you will be asked additional € 20
appartement très bien situé dans les ruelles de l'Alfama proche du tramway n°28, du Chateau San Gorge et du métro Santa Apolina.
Logement propre un seul bémol salle de douche un peu petite
Attention si vous arrivez après 22h il vous sera demandé 20€ supplémentaire
The apartment is lovely, very central. Ideal for people who like the bohemian areas. Jorge care was correct and very friendly.
el apartamento es precioso, está muy céntrico. Ideal para gente que le guste las zonas bohemias. la atención de Jorge fue correcta y muy amable.
Upon arrival at the airport we called, and we were told that we are already at 12.00h in the apartment could instead 15.00h. After a call to 12.00h man already came within 10 minutes on his moped to hand over the key.
The apartment is well on the 4th floor so it was every time lots of stairs. The apartment was good. nice view. The rooms and showers were clean.
Bij aankomst op het vliegveld hebben we gebeld, en we kregen te horen dat we al om 12.00u het appartement in konden i.p.v. 15.00u. na een belletje om 12.00u kwam de man al binnen 10 min op zijn brommertje om de sleutel te overhandigen.
het appartement zit wel op de 4e verdieping dus het was wel elke keer veel trappen lopen. Het appartement was goed. mooi uitzicht. de kamers en douche was netjes.
The apartment is spacious and light. It was delivered clean and with fresh towels and bed sheets. It's fully equipped. Tram 28 passes close, so you'll need earplugs if you're sensitive to noise. The bedroom has a wardrobe where you can hang clothes but no shelves. The biggest problem is that the wall behind the kitchen has a humidity problem, so there's a mouldy smell, especially if you open the kitchen closet. It didn't bother us too much though.
Excellent locstion and very nice and comfortable apt. We Had a wonderful time!
