Description
CASA DOS FADOS apartment is a typical apartment in the oldest district of Lisbon, the Alfama District! This fully equipped apartment in the heart of the city will give you an unforgettable stay.
CASA DOS FADOS apartment is a one bedroom apartment located on the first floor of a typical building and it comprises a bedroom with a double bed, a lounge area with a comfortable double sofa bed, a complete bathroom and kitchen. The apartment is located in a quiet street in the heart of Alfama district. The apartment's location is extremely privileged, and is located less than 10 minutes walk from the Metro station Santa Apolonia (blue line). The city centre – Praça do Comércio - is 10 minutes away on foot, a distance easily covered when it is to landscape the Alfama district. The "Castelo de São Jorge" (Saint Jorge Castle) one of Lisbon's most famous landmarks is also less than 10 minutes up the hill.
NEIGHBOURHOOD:
- Local Grocery Stores, ATM Machines, Pharmacies: just around the corner
- Authentic Restaurants, Cafés, Pastry Shops and Bakeries
- Fado Restaurantes/Venues such as the Casa da Morgadinha, just next to the the building.
- 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 neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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 specialities 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.

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).

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.

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

We were very pleased with the accommodation. The location has allowed us in the center of everything to reach on foot. The view was fantastic and the rooms were just like the pictures had promised us.
We will also book tours Other cities with Wimdu.

JARDIM BOTÂNICO - a large terrace in Principe Real

Great for the general.
The apartment is very nice and spacious placement is fine and calm.
The team that manages the accommodation on site is 2 steps and very responsive when you have a problem of any kind.
Only complaint is the quality of facilities for some HS (coffee maker) and other small problem (washing machine and water heater). That said minor concern which I think will be resolved and n have for my part not affected my stay.
Happy travels.

ALFAMA S. RAFAEL 4 - low budget and great location

Great location in the middle of the old part of town, the old city wall where many guides show turrist companies this place.
Central to the whole entire city.
The apartment was good, with two bedrooms and bath a staircase up.
At night it becomes the square outside our front door to an outdoor restaurant
"Fado / Restaurante" with classical Portugese gitarspil and singing. A great experience.
