Description
Description
In the heart of the most typical Lisbon district, this duplex apartment has one double bed room and one two single beds room. A double sofa bed in the lounge accepts two people to sleep comfortably.
Next to the building is a very typical restaurant with "fados" show, which owner offers a free drink and the show to the guests of this apartment.
Wifi internet, and all the amenities are available.
Next to the São Jorge Castle, one of Lisbon's most famous landmarks, this apartment is five minutes walking distance from Tram 28.

This apartment will comfortably welcome you into a contemporary design accommodation featuring many of the essential objects and furniture of 21th century such as the wireless internet connection and all the kitchenware and domestic appliances you can ask for! From here you can explore Lisbon´s oldest district with its small and narrow streets, stairways leading to cozy and romantic alleys, beautiful Moorish fountains, typical and family runned small restaurants purveyors of delicious Portuguese dishes and of course Fado taverns! Lisbon´s downtown area and the Santa Apolónia railway and metro station are just 10 minutes walking away connecting you to other parts of the city, Portugal and Europe!

NEIGHBOURHOOD:
- Local Grocery Stores, ATM Machines, Pharmacies: just around the corner
- Authentic Restaurants, Cafés, Pastry Shops and Bakeries
- Fado Restaurantes/Venues such as the Clube do Fado, Parreirinha de Alfama, A Baíuca just around the corner
- Night Bars and Clubs: Club Rubik and the famous and trendy Lux Club in Santa Apolónia
- Museums: Museu do Fado
- Beautiful Viewpoints of Portas do Sol and Santa Luzia
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.

TRANSPORTS:
City center is less than 10 minutes walking, so you will be able to enjoy most of Lisbon´s attractions by foot! You have however buses, trams and metro nearby running every minute:

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.

ALFAMA S. RAFAEL 4 - low budget and great location

Die Wohnung liegt sehr zentral im wunderschönen Stadtteil Alfama. Sie ist optimal mit Bus oder U-Bahn zu erreichen. Die Einrichtung ist zweckdienlich und entsprach unseren Erwartungen. Einzig die Küchenausstattung war sehr übersichtlich. Uns fehlten vor allem Topfdeckel und die eine oder andere Tasse mehr, wäre schön gewesen. Wir würden die Wohnung wieder buchen.

BICA, nice views over the river, nice location

Wir hatten wunderbare Tage in ihrer Wohnung! Die Aussicht ist umwerfend! Nicht nur auf den Fluss sondern aus allen Fenstern (schade waren sie nicht ganz sauber). Alles funktionierte einwandfrei (Küche, Bad, wifi super schnell, genügend Geschirr, saubere Wäsche). Auch die Lage ist gut, mit Bus 714 erreicht man schnell alle wichtigen Anschlussorte.
Wir haben die Tage sehr genossen! Danke für alles!

Casa Fresca

Sehr schöne, neu eingerichtete, geräumige und ruhige Wohnung.
Alles da, ob in der Küche, Schlafzimmer oder im Bad.
Ideal für zwei Personen, aber auch Platz für drei oder vier Personen.
Verbesserungsvorschlag---einen zweiten Zugang zum Bad., denn die dritte Person muss durchs Schlafzimmer. Leider!
Die Wohnung liegt gut, Busslinien und Einkaufsmöglichkeit sind direkt um die Ecke.
Es lohnt sich, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, jeder Zeit wieder.
Danke...Heinz, Doris und Theresa

Flores Terrace - 3 bedrooms, terrace, garage

Hemos estado 6 personas en el apartamento de Flores Terraza. Tiene tres habitaciones, dos baños y un salón que se ha hecho en parte de una gran terraza. Todo como en las fotos.Eestaba limpio y las camas muy cómodas (las habitaciones son muy amplias) y las toallas muy bien. La única deficiencia en el apartamento es que tenía pocos vasos y escaso instrumental de cocina.
Llevamos coche y la zona es de pago, aunque dispusimos de parking del apartemento, fue muy difícil meter el coche, de tal manera, que el último día tuvimos que dejarle fuera antes de intentar volver a meter el coche en el garaje.
El apartamento está en una zona muy tranquila del barrio alto (grandes cuestas), y hay restaurantes y supermercados al lado -
Se llega andando en 20 minutos a la plaza del Rossio y no hay necesidad de utilizar metro ni autobús, aunque cuando llegamos nos dijeron que no estaba demasiado cerca, nosotros hemos ido siempre andando.
El anfitrión bien, no tengo una especial opinión de él, porque solo tuve la oportunidad de verle un momento.

Chiado Cultura 2 cafés theatres fun and nightlife!

Prima accomodatie in een oud kantoorgebouw. Locatie is uitstekend tussen alle bezienswaardigheden in en bij winkels en uitgaansgelegenheden. Ontbijten kan om de hoek. Interieur gedateerd maar wel schoon.
