    Beautiful and Bright Apartment in Sunny Lisbon Historic Centre - Alfama



    Situated in the heart of Lisbon’s most characteristic Old Quarter, just 100 metres from the renowned Fado Museum, this modern 1 bedroom apartment at Alfama is located on the 1st floor of a building totally refurbished in 2012. Tastefully decorated …


      The apartment is clean, bright and well located in the heart of Alfama where alot of sights are within walking distance. It is well equipped and has everything you could want for a weekend stay or longer. There are local stores for essentials and a small supermarket close by at the station. However there are lots of small restaurants and bars in the street itself and in the locality. There was music in many of them. It has a good neighbourhood feeling to it although many visitors are also wandering round sight seeing the really interesting buildings and sights. Lisbon is very easy to walk around and to use the public transport system. Lots to see and enjoy whether galleries, buildings, parks or shops are your thing. Also very easy to get out of the city to places like Sintra and Cascais within 30 min trips. The owner not only collected us from the airport and arranged our lift back, he was also exceptionally helpful and full of really good local knowledge and hints. In the lead up to going and during our stay he was always available and went out of his way to answer questions and tell us about the things we were most interested in. This really added to the experience as he knew the city and the area so well. Would recommend this apartment.
      The apartment was as described, well equipped and maintained. The area is very convenient for trams and metro and also for walking. Paulo was extremely helpful and replied promptly to all queries. We can recommend a winter visit as the city is quiet and the weather mild and sunny. We had lunch outside at the Gulbenkian (one of Europe's great museums, our second visit). Would recommend the property to a couple for a city break.
      avons passé un séjour très agréable.L'appartement est tel qu'il est présenté, aménagé avec goût, il n'y manque rien !.Emplacement idéal , commerces et restaurants au pied de l'appartement.Lisbonne est une ville à ne pas rater. Le propriétaire est d'une très grande gentillesse,Vraiment ravis de nos quelques jours !!un grand merci .Alain et Béatrice . Nantes
      This was our first time in Portugal. Upon arriving in Lisbon we met with Paulo (at the airport) and taken to our lovely 2-room apartment on an old winding cobble stone street in the district of Alfama (the old city). The apartment is spacious, clean and the bed very comfortable. The first night there were many Fado (singing) performances in all of Alfama neighborhood. We went to sleep with live music and songs. Paulo was always available to us via e-mail, text or telephone and was able to help us with all our questions and guidance to the sites of Lisbon. Although we were only there a week, we had a wonderful vacation and would love to return for a more extended visit.
      Mit 2 Freundinnen bewohnte ich das gemütliche Apartment mitten in der Alfama. Vollständig renoviert, modern und mit allem Haushaltsequipment ausgestattet., sauber und gepflegt präsentierte sich unsere Unterkunft. Wenn wir das Haus über eine (steile) Treppe verließen, standen wir praktisch schon vor dem ersten Fado-Restaurant, von denen es mindestens 15 im Umkreis von 100 m gab. Näher am Fado und dem originären Leben in der Altstadt geht nicht. Unser sympathischer Vermieter hatte uns bereits im Vorfeld Besichtigungsvorschläge zukommen lassen und überraschte uns mit einem sehr leckeren Rotwein vor Ort. Er holte uns außerdem am Flughafen ab und brachte uns wieder hin. Dank seiner sehr guten Englischkenntnisse war die Kommunikation kein Problem. Wir können diese Unterkunft (trotz des kleinen Badezimmers) jedem empfehlen, der typische(n) Alltag(-nacht) in Lissabon`s Altstadt erleben möchte. Einzig der Park der Nationen (ehemaliges Weltausstellungsgelände) hat uns nicht so überzeugt (man braucht hierfür nicht unbedingt einen ganzen Tag einplanen), allerdings ist das Ozeanarium schon sehenswert. Es lohnt sich, ein Ticket zur Benutzung aller Verkehrsmittel zu kaufen, das auch Ermäßigungen bzw, freien Eintritt zu Sehenswürdigkeiten gewährt. Unbedingt sehen sollte man die Camera oscura im Castelo Sao Jorge.
      Everything was as expected and better. Paolo is amazing - nothing is too much trouble - not even when you blow the fuses or cannot unlock the door! Also picked us up and drove us to/from airport - never had such service before. And a wealth of information about Alfama, Lisboa and everything Portuguese in general. Great location, perfect for experiencing how locals live and work - very few tourists stay in this area although many visit. Recommend restaurant Arco - our neighbour and wonderful ladies in charge of the kitchen. Also a wine bar, Instinctus, near Castelo de S Jorge - tiny but great experience. Highly recommended! Obrigado Paolo
      Conforto, 5 estrelas, bom gosto, charme, simpatia, único, e, muitas mais palavras nos ajudariam a descrever este “delicioso” apartamento em Alfama. Viemos direitinhos do Algarve para uns belos dias na capital e sentimos que tínhamos acertado no sítio certo!!! Obrigado ao Paulo, o “Grande Anfitrião” que nos mimou desde o início com a sua simpatia, amizade e as suas belas dicas sobre Alfama e Lisboa…fez – nos sentir em casa. Voltaremos brevemente e aconselhamos a todos os interessados.
      This is a beautiful apartment located in the quaint district of Alfama. It is artistically decorated, bright and airy and is fully equipped, down to first aid kits! The owner Paulo is very welcoming and has provided great communication right from the beginning and he also picked us up from Santa Apolonia train station (within easy walking distance). We will definitely stay here again if we return, and recommend this place to anyone who wish to stay in Lisbon.
      Desde a fantástica recepção por parte do nosso anfitrião Paulo Leitão, até à estadia no centro do mais bonito bairro lisboeta, tudo foi óptimo! Gostámos muito do apartamento, muito clean e de bom gosto, funcional e agradável. Tivémos a sorte de a nossa estadia coincidir com os Santos Populares e conseguimos ficar no centro das comemorações, com direito a uma noite de descanso a uns passos da festa. Recomendamos vivamente, voltaremos com toda a certeza!
      Really good service from Paolo, including airport pick-up late evening. The location is in the very heart of Alfama,- cant be better! Note, that there is no car traffic in the lane, but some chat from vendors and by-passing tourists. The flat is small but charming and perfect for two adults! We will definitely be back some time!

      We loved this apartment--it has everything you need for your visit to Lisbon! The apartment is adorable--it is comfortably furnished and bright. The pictures portray it perfectly. It was immaculate and well maintained. It is located right in the heart of all the "goings on" of the Alfama so you can really feel like you're part of the neighborhood. But in spite of all the noise coming from the street (which we enjoyed) the windows are new and designed so that when you close them you can have peace and quiet. We arrived late and Paulo was waiting for us at the airport. He wants to make sure that you are happy and takes care of your every need. I would definitely recommend this apartment. The only drawback (and Paulo mentions this in his description) are the steep stairs. However, we only found them difficult when we arrived and left with our luggage--and Paulo gave us a hand with that!
      We arrived in the first week of October. We were picked up from the airport with a friendly smile, taken to the apartment, perfectly placed in the old town Alfama. Every convenience available and anything required just a phone call away. We would recommend it to anybody wanting to appreciated Lisboa. Everyone would love it!
      We stayed in this comfortable apartment in September 2013. We were warmly welcomed at Alfama 28. The apartment is very cosy and has everything you need. Besides, it is well located. Paulo is a very friendly host and always available if you need any help. We only can recommend this apartment to everybody who wants to experience the Lisbon style of life.
      We stayed at Alfama 28 in August 2013. First of all we must thank Paulo for his kindness and warm welcome. He is a very bright and friendly landlord. Not only did he pick us up from the airport when we arrived in Lisbon, but also dropped us off at the coach station on the day of departure! Paulo even gave us great tips for the remainder of our trip in Portugal as we were first heading south to Algarve and then north to Porto. The apartment is located in Alfama, the oldest remaining district in Lisbon after the catastrophic earthquake in 1755. This part of Lisbon gives you the pure and sincere feeling of authenticity with its narrow and (very) steep streets. You will most likely find everything you need for your stay in the apartment. The flat is clean and very well fitted. There were no issues whatsoever during our stay. The table is absolutely packed with flyers and maps of different tourist attractions which we found very helpful indeed. Restaurants are just a few minutes away and there's actually a very nice fado house right opposite the flat. Right next to it there's a small corner shop, which can prove handy at times. Underground stations are ~10 minutes away. We will definitely recommend Alfama 28 to our friends and family as we REALLY loved our stay at the apartment. Thank you for everything Paulo. Obrigado!
      It is a very cosy flat perfectly located. Everything you need is provided. The flat is brand new, very clean and comfortable. Paulo arrange everything perfectly: he picked us at the train station, gave us good addresses and place to see I. lisbonne and around. He speaks French very well and is really friendly. We can't wait to come back!
      The property was exactly as described in the listing. It wasn't large, but it didn't need to be. Everything one needed for a relaxing holiday, was well catered for. The owner was exemplary in as much as he picked us up from the station, and dropped us off at the airport, and was full of ideas on what to see and where to go. If any member is planning to visit Portugal, they should definitely spend some time in Lisbon, and there is no better place to stay than this property. We recommend it highly. We spent two weeks in Lisbon and still saw nowhere near everything Lisbon has to offer. On one wall of the apartment is a list of the ten things major things a visitor should do and see - you can't go wrong if you follow what is suggested. As to restaurants, there are six within minutes of the apartment. The one on the right near the square at the bottom of the hill, is excellent: order the sardine dish, you won't be disappointed. Truth be told, there wasn't much to dislike. Thanks to the owner, our stay in Lisbon was most gratifying.
      Le propriétaire, Paulo, est très sympathique et disponible pour répondre à toutes questions y compris en français (il nous attendait même à l'aéroport). L'appartement est très confortable (il y a tout ce qu'il faut: linge de maison, produits d'entretien, électroménagers gros et petits, café, thé...). Il est très bien situé dans un quartier animé (proche de tout: commerces, restaurants, centre historique, transports en commun...). Nous y reviendrions avec grand plaisir.
      This apartment has everything you need for a comfortable short stay for 1 or 2 persons. Furniture and decoration are very tasteful. The location is great in a very typical and lively neighbourhood of Lisbon. It is situated within a short walk of the centre and of a lot of means of public transport and very near the river Tagus. The apartment is very well maintained and clean. The bed is excellent. As a bonus the charming propiertor will give you a lot of tips and advice for visiting the city. Add to this that he will collect you from the airport. Just in front of the door of the building you have a little grocery where you can find all basic food stuff for your breakfast. For a cheap and real Portuguese dinner we recommend restaurant A Muralha, just around the corner. Try the fish and octopus dishes and the Vinho Verde of the house. We had a great stay. The city has really a lot of musea and other attractions that are worthwhile visiting. We had for example a great time at the Oceanario, at Belem, at the Gulbenkian museum, the maritime museum, ...
      I absolutely loved the Alfama apartment. It was very clean and in a great location. Close to everything. Doesn't take long to find your way around. Definitely gives you the feel of living in the heart of Lisbon. People are friendly especially the alley cats (all the lovely ladies that watch out for you). Paulo is a fantastic host arranging everything for a great stay, from the pick-up at the airport, setting up your wi-fi, directions, pre-ordering and picking up soccer tickets and great laughs and conversation. He should be a travel agent as well. I would stay there again if I ever get the chance to visit Lisbon again! The apartment has everything you need and is comfortable. remember to water the flowers! Hahahaha There is good fado at the restaurant just down the alley on the left going towards the square. Great Italian restaraunt at the train station. Great wine shop around the corner called Art d'Alfama. I would definitely recommend this apartment to my friends and family.
      An absolutely delightful apartment nestled in the heart of fabulous Alfama in beautiful Lisbon. This charming place is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. It is equipped with everything one would need for a comfortable stay and is thoughtfully stocked. It is an inspired creative space with perfect touches throughout. It lies in the heart of activity with restaurants, local grocers and public transportation readily accessible while you get to experience an authentic Portuguese neighborhood. Paulo is an exceptional host who made my parents' stay in Lisbon a lovely experience. He went above and beyond to offer our family wonderful tips and insights during our stay in Lisbon. He was always available and a delight to work with ~ a truly charming host and a truly wonderful apartment!
      Absolutamente maravilloso. El apartamento, muy confortable, diseñado con mucho gusto y estilo, en una ubicación inmejorable en pleno corazón de Alfama. Y el dueño, el señor Leitao, un perfecto anfitrión, que nos hizo sentir como si estuviéramos en nuestra propia casa desde el mismo momento en que nos recibió en el aeropuerto. ¡Volveremos!
      If you are looking for a great place to stay in Lisbon, then you can't go past this property. It is in a central position close to everything. My wife and I walked everywhere to see the major sites, other than Belem area which you have to catch a bus to. The apartment is fully equipped with everything you might need. We stayed there for 5 nights and loved it. The apartment is very clean and any groceries you might need during your stay would be available in the shop just outside your front door in the narrow street. There are lots of restaurants and Fado clubs to visit. The owner, Paulo, is just wonderful. He went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. He even picked us up from the airport and took us to the apartment. He showed us how everything worked and where things were situated in the area. He even helped to take us to the the car hire office at the end of our 5 day visit He is most helpful and we are very indebted to his kindness and service. If you want to experience Lisbon, then the narrow streets of Alfama is the way to go. You will not regret taking this apartment for a few days as the position is perfect and Paulo's service is great. We are in our early 60's and fit enough to go up the stairs to the apartment. J&L from Australia
      We had a short 4 night break in Lisbon - March 2013. We originally chose this apartment for the location and excellent reviews. IT DIDN'T DISSAPOINT IN ANY RESPECT. The apartment is well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. The location is in the heart of Alfama, close to all the main attractions and transport links. Paulo the owner is a fantastic host, he makes you feel at home immediately and cannot do enough to make your stay one you won't forget. We strongly recommend this apartment and more importantly Paulo for his warm welcome and incredible customer service. Thanks again Geoff and Elaine
      We had a wonderful week at Alfama 28. It was spotless clean and well equipped, also the internet access was great! The location is good, the nearest metro is at Sta Apolonia station, where you can also find a bigger store Pingo Doce to buy food etc (it´s open from 7.00 am to 23.00 pm every day). Just in front of the apartment there is a small shop to buy daily things. There are also a lot of restaurants nearby. We recommend Taverna D´el Rey where you can have excellent meals and hear good Fado! Having restaurants nearby means there may be some noise during night time. The owner Paulo is very polite and took really good care of us during our visit. He gave us many ideas what to do and where to visit. He was also available all the time. Thank you Paulo and all the best luck in growing the Christmas trees! Kind regards, Sari and Jouko Nieminen Finland
      The apartment was cozy and just perfect for two fit adults. Located in the atmospheric Alfama district, it is within walking distance of the cathedral, castle and Placa Commercial. Paulo, the owner, was enthusiastically helpful and communicative, both before and during our stay. He even picked us up from the airport! We absolutely recommend this apartment. Thank you for a wonderful visit.
      We very much loved our stay over Christmas - the location is very full of character with very easy walk to many different styles of restaurant and fado bars - in fact there are both just beside the apartment. The apartment is very well designed and furnished - such a comfortable bed and stylish wine glasses! A huge bonus is the helpfulness of the owner - he knows the area so well and is incredibly helpful in finding out all the details that you need to know to make the stay perfect. He suggested the perfect place for us to spend Christmas Day and went to a lot of trouble to make sure what was open during our stay - consequently we had the perfect Christmas!! A big thanks to Paulo and we hope to be back soon!!
      This was a wonderful apartment to stay in. Spotless clean, well maintained, great location in a charming, narrow street in Alfama, and it had everything we needed. Paulo, the owner, was incredibly nice, welcoming and helpful, even when he was going to get up outrageously early for airport transfer on a public holiday. The kind of guy who seemed genuinely happy to make sure we were having a good time. The apartment appeared at least as large in real life as on the photos here on the web site. I think that's the first time I have had that experience. The area is lively, with a lot of fado clubs around. That also means that there can be quite a party going on in the street below; if you are sensitive to noise at night, you might want to bring some earplugs, but don't let that keep you away from this truly great apartment; it's just local charm. It's a wonderful area to walk around and get lost in. There are many places nearby to eat and drink and it's a short walk to some of the viewpoints where you can enjoy the view of the rooftops and bell-towers of Alfama and the Tejo river behind. Lisbon is a lovely city - and this apartment was definitely a lovely place to stay.
      I cannot say enough about this apartment, great location, lovely condition and fantastic host Paulo who kindly collected us from the Airport. The apartment is located right in the Alfama area along the cobbled streets, the apartment is clean, has everything you'd want and really comfortable bed...!! The location is in easy reach of the other areas of the city especially if walking but you need to be fit for some of the hills. You can get around on the Metro easily too. There is so much to do in Lisbon that we're already planning our next visit next year. Having been to Porto a few years ago we found the people to be open and generally caring about tourists giving great service in restaurants and bars. If you need any advice then Paulo is always on hand and on the other end of the phone to assist as he did on the first day after arriving when I couldn't get back into the apartment, the issue being me and the odd key for the door. It was an odd key that extened to open the door but you'll soon find this out..!! Thank you Paulo for a great short break in Lisbon, really enjoyed the apartment and hope to see you again in 2013.
      The Alfama apartment is a very nice, modern and well equipped apartment in the heart of Lisbon's old town. Alfama is a neighbourhood with a lot of small alleys and where you can get in touch with pure portuguese life. All sights of Lisbon are easily reachable. Little shops and restaurants are in the direct surrounding. We absolutely recommend this apartment. Ina and Uli.
