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

Appartement très bien situé dans le coeur de l'alfama dans un immeuble typique rénové donnant sur une place animée.
Séjour très agréable, un petit bémol pour l'équipement de la cuisine (pas de torchon, une machine à dosette sans dosettes, pas de café ni thé, sucre etc...) et l'odeur de la salle de bain (due à une bonde d'évacuation que nous avons dû couvrir pour éviter la mauvaise odeur).

Principe Real II - Fantastic location

The apartment was well situated in the Bairro alta area. But the on the website pictures are nicer than in real life.
The chairs were loose and the table was defect. There was no tableclothe and a painting was leaning on the sofa. The pillows was smaller than showed in the picture. There were missing proper kitchen knifes.

The kitchen and the bathroom was good.

IMPRENSA POP low cost flat; 9 Pax; parking; views.

Lage der Wohnung ist gut, die Zimmer sind sehr schön,
Küche könnte etwas mehr Ausstattung ( nicht ausreichend für bis zu 9 Pers. ) vertragen...

Jorge ist sehr hilfreich und nett...

bis auf die kleinen Mängel in der Küche alles BESTENS.....

MANOR HOUSE - 4 bedrooms 9 people city center

Very nice and spacious Apartment right next to the Sé Cathedral! Had everything we need: fresh towels, kitchen utensils, fridge, freezer, tv, ironing board and very good wi-fi. It even had a washing machine which we didn't use because we just stayed 3 nights. Close to everything nearby. Important to leave open the window in the evening, otherwise It can become a Little bit hot in summer since it is on the top floor of the building. Very quiet neighbourhood in the evening, a Little bit busy during the day.

BICA, nice views over the river, nice location

Wir waren mit der Unterbringung sehr zufrieden. Die Lage hat es uns erlaubt im Zentrum alles zuFuß erreichen zu können. Die Aussicht war fantastisch und die Räumlichkeiten waren so wie die Bilder es uns versprochen hatten.
Wir werden auch weitere Städtetouren bei Wimdu buchen.
Da sind wir uns auch mit unseren Freunden einig.

JARDIM BOTÂNICO - a large terrace in Principe Real

Très bien pour le général.
L appartement est très sympas et spacieux le placement est très bien et calme.
L équipe qui gère le logement sur place est à 2 pas et très réactive lorsque vous avez un problème de quelque nature que ce soit.
Le seul bémol est la qualité des équipements pour certain HS (machine à café ) et d autre petit souci ( machine à laver et chauffe eau). Cela dit des souci mineur qui vont je pense se régler et qui n ont pour ma part pas altéré mon séjour .
Bon séjour à vous.
