Description

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

- 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.

BICA, nice views over the river, nice location

Ich war im Monat November mit 3 weiteren Personen für 5 Tage in Lissabon und habe mir dieses Apartment gebucht. Insgesamt waren Wir mit der Sauberkeit, Standortlage und Service sehr zufrieden.

Ein Stern Abzug gibt es für die Küche da diese nicht zu 100% (Herdplatte) funktionsfähig ist.

BICA, nice views over the river, nice location

Appartement très agréable avec une vue incroyable sur le Tage et la ville!
Les clés sont remise rapidement après un coups de téléphone.On accède à l appartement par un escalier très pente qui peux s avérer délicat si vous voyagez avec des enfants en bas âge. L appartement est bien décoré. le linge de maison est fourni (serviette de toilette très agréable et même un torchon pour la cuisine). Un petit bémol concernant l équipement, le four ne fonctionne pas et nous avons eu du mal à faire fonctionner le gaz. Le quartier est très agréable (commerces à quelques pas) et plutôt calme.
Bonne location!

Morgadinha 2 in Alfama

Die Unterkunft in der wir waren in der Largo de Sao Rafael 2 war echt super. Total zentral gelegen. Es ist fast alles in 5 Minuten zu erreichen. Mitten in der Alfama. Unten gibt es gleich ein Restaurant mit Fado und gegenüber eine Wein und Tapas Bar. Die Zimmer sind zwar enfach aber hell und sauber. Wir würden gern wieder kommen.

COSTA DO CASTELO - Blue haven next to the Castle

The flat has a lot of positive but also some negative things:
Positive: easy to deal with the agency who manages the flat, good and mostly quiet Location, big and clean beds (for 2 People), easy to get to (once you found the two elevadores going up the hill Close by), plenty of hot water for showers.
Negative: The Pictures make the flat look new - it isnt. The mold in the bathroom is only paintet over with White paint, doorhadles just stay in your Hands when you use them (happened with 3 different handles), there was a huge cacroach, cooking just takes Ages (30 min. for boiling water, one of the two hot fields is broken and cant be regulated), taking a shower floods half of the bathroom which cant be locked.
An ok flat, but dont expect too much. I wouldnt recommend staying there with more than two People, even if you are okay with a place that is in Need of complete Restauration.

PAZ, quiet next to Bairro Alto

Logement très bien sauf odeur d'humidité et d'égout surtout dans la salle de bain mais je pense que c'est souvent comme ça dans les immeubles du bairro alto.
Le rapport qualité/prix est comme il faut.
Rue calme et à 2 min de la Rua Bento, très facile pour le taxi ou le tram 28 !

VICENTE VARANDA - charm in old typical Alfama

eine wunderschöne Wohnung, sehr zentral gelegen. Das Bett war sehr bequem, Handtücher waren vorhanden, die Dusche war sehr kraftvoll, die Ausstattung des Appartements war völlig ausreichend und sehr schön war die kleine Terasse.
Ein "kleiner" Nachteil: ohne Ohropax konnten wir nicht schlafen, denn die süße Straßenbahn fährt bis 00:00 Uhr und ab 6:00 Uhr Direkt vor dem Schlafzimmer und das ist leider ziemlich laut.
Ansonsten können wir die Wohnung wirklich weiterempfehlen und hatten eine schöne Zeit in Lissabon.
