Description

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:

Ottima posizione nel quartiere più caratteristico di Lisbona. La consegna delle chiavi è stata puntuale e precisa. La casa era abbastanza pulita, ma il divano letto molto scomodo per due adulti. Le lenzuola e gli asciugamani puliti.

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.

VICENTE VARANDA - charm in old typical Alfama

El recibimiento muy bien, la persona que nos recibió muy amable y dispuesta a informarnos de todo.
El alojamiento cumplía con lo esperado pero la limpieza podría haber sido mejor. No tenía aspecto de haberse limpiado recientemente.
Por lo demaas la ubicación perfecta, es cierto que el tranvía 28 pasa justo por la puerta y hace ruido pero eso ya lo sabíamos y le daba encanto. En general muy recomendable exceptuando el tema de la limpieza.

QUINTINHA TERRACE - Sunny apartment next to bairro alto

We gingen met 4 meiden van 21 jaar op vakantie. We waren al om 9 uur in de ochtend geland. Iegelijk konden we pas het appartement in om 3 uur maar we mochten van de eigenaar onze koffers al naar het appartement brengen. Alles was keurig schoon gemaakt toen we er in mochten. Er waren zelf rolluiken. Het appartement bevindt zich in een mooie wijk. Om de hoek zit een straatje met 2 kleine supermarkten, een bakker een slager en een grote supermarkt. Ook zijn er leuke restaurantjes in de buurt. Het station is ongeveer 20 minuten lopen. Het centrum ongeveer 10 en de uitgaansstraat pinkstreet is 15 min lopen ongeveer. taxi naar huis kost vaak 4.50.
Bij problemen handelt de eigenaar van het appartement heel goed. Een keer had heel het gebouw geen water meer. Wij hebben toen contact opgenomen en binnen een uur hadden wij weer water. Ook hebben we een hele dag zonder stroom gezeten samen met alle andere mensen in het gebouw. Dit waarschijnlijk door dat er bouwwerkzaamheden waren ernaast. De eigenaar betaalde toen uiteten voor ons in een best lux restaurant.
Waar het appartement ligt wonen vooral Portugezen. Dus je moet het wel rustiger aan doen buiten op het terras na 10 uur. Anders gaan de buren klagen.

Maar top appartement!

Combro 2 - 7pax flat in Bairro Alto

Excellent location and space!

We were a group of five friends and this apartment was ideal for our stay in Lisbon. There was loads of seating, enough beds for seven, two showers (which made getting ready to go out much quicker!) and a large, fully equipped kitchen. The outdoor seating area was also perfect for breakfast or a late drink.

The apartment is situated on a busy street - the famous tram 28 stops on it, and the Bica funicular is two minutes away - but with the windows closed it was perfectly quiet at night. It's really easy to find your way to the main tourist sites and areas of town, and there were loads of cafes, bars, restaurants and a mini market a short walk from the front door. There's also a cool bar on the roof of a multi-storey car park across the street that is worth checking out.

The owners were there to greet us when we arrived and left their number in case we had any problems. The only suggestion I'd make is for more towels to be provided as there was one bath towel per person but no hand towels, and perhaps a few more drinking/wine glasses. Everything else was great and I'd definitely recommend it to a friend. Thanks very much!

ALFAMA S. RAFAEL 4 - low budget and great location

Apartment very well located in the heart of the Alfama in a renovated typical building overlooking a busy square.
Very pleasant stay, a little flat for the kitchen equipment (no rag, a pod machine without pods, no coffee or tea, sugar etc ...) and the smell of the bathroom (due to a bung evacuation we had to cover to avoid bad smell).
