Cozy stay in the most interesting part of Lisbon
Left on 01/21/2014 for a stay in December 2013 | Carlos and Su
Tucked away on the Escadinhas de Sao Estevao in alfama, this duplex apartment places you right in the heart of Lisbon. Cobblestones, stairs, azulejos (tiles) and glimpses of the sea from a nearby lookout point. In the evening, strains of fado waft around. A mix of tourists and locals are in the streets, enjoying alfama and the authenticity of old Lisbon.
The apartment itself is thoughtfully equipped, there is nothing that is missing - from the blender in the kitchen to the hairdryer in the bathroom and the portable heaters in case the balmy Lisbon weather turns chilly.
It actually sleeps up to six, as the very comfortable double bed has two other sofa beds for company.
The service was friendly, unobtrusive and conveniently just a phone call away. We had to have the wireless router reset a couple of times and as it is not in the unit itself, a smiling member of the Heart & Soul would pop around the corner from their office to sort things out.
So don't miss this chance to stay in alfama, the most interesting part of Lisbon, and you are safe in the hands of the Heart and Soul team who really put...well, heart and soul...into making your stay just perfect.
Charming, Clean, Comfortable, Cozy and Central

The service was first class. We felt welcome among friends and right at home. A special request for extra bedding was handled within the hour.
The hosts have a helpful book listing popular eateries and helpful information about visiting popular sights.
The apartment is wonderfully appointed with a large-flat screen TV with full cable, washer-dryer, stove, microwave, coffee machine etc all in excellent condition. There is a half bath up and a full bath with a shower down. There is a sleeper sofa on the first floor (top) floor and a very comfortable bed and sofa in the bedroom downstairs. A cute spiral staircase accesses the bedroom and master bath downstairs. The bedroom is roomy but there are only two small closets so not enough space to unload your suitcases. A dresser on the wall by the stairway would be nice. It is good for 2 or maybe 3 people but I would not have more. Only for this I gave 4 instead of 5 stars.
The location is only about a hundred yards up the hill from the Fado Museum and square where you can catch a taxi at almost any time. You are also within 10 minutes walking of Rossio station where you can catch a train to Sintra (recommended) and other outlying areas. All around the neighborhood within five minutes are many wonderful little Fado restaurants, Pasteleria, little bars and convenience stores. This charming neighborhood has many terraces and views. St Georges Castle (Castello Sao Jorges) is very close - about 15 minute walk up the hill.
We loved the artwork in the churches, the historical sights, the wines, the Ginginghua, and local food and the helpful friendly taxi drivers. We did not like so much the cod cakes which are noted as a local dish although we did have a cod-bake at the restaurant at Pena Palace that was yummy.
I would recommend this if you are more concerned about the experience of being in Lisboa and spending money on making memories than you are about amenities like a pool or spa at a hotel.
Comfortable stay in the best neighborhood of Lisbon

I stayed in the Estevao apartment together with a friend and we had a terrific time!
We arrived earlier than the official check-inn time, but it was no problem and we received a warm welcome. The apartment looks exactly like on the pictures and provides the comfort which is wished for in hot Lisbon. Everything was very clean and all practical accessories like towels, internet, herbs and oil to cook, a hairdryer, a flatiron, etc. were provided.
Also, we wanted to check-out 5 hours later than the official check-out time, which was no problem. Felipe (out contact) made sure we had everything we needed and made our stay as relaxing as possible.
The apartment is located in to my opinion the nicest area of Lisbon and the streets around the apartment in particular know good restaurants and peace and quite at night. I would strongly recommend this apartment to people that like to stay in Lisbon for some days.
Lovely apartment, great owners

Se é verdade o que diz a sabedoria popular, O apartamento da Calçadinha Santo Estevão, na alfama, fez com que nos apaixonássemos por Lisboa de novo e de uma forma muito familiar.
Recomendamos com muita certeza a experiencia.
Um apartamentinho muito acolhedor.
Tudo muito à mão e aconchegante.
No coração da alfama, com acessos muito faceis e junto aos bares de fado autentico.

Nous avons apprécié l'acceuil, la situation dans la quartier d'Alfama, la décoration et les équipements de l'appartement. L'ensemble était vraiment très agréable.
Pour être complet, je précise qu'il manque quelques couverts (petites cuillères) et que l'étagère de la TV est cassée.

Cosy appartment, a perfect spot to discover the city and enjoy the old alfama district.
It was surprisingly quiet during the night, not many people had to take our small street

Very homey! Having a member of the Heart and Soul team meet us at the apartment, then assist information and pointers for seeing Lisbon was more than expected.

Cosy appartment in heart of alfalma; very nice atmosphere. Nearby streat with local pastery shops to have nice breakfast, coffeebars etc. In the street (which is actually a flight of stairs, so be aware if you have any physical inabilities) is a (old fashioned) bathing house for those not fortunate enough to have a shower at home. Neighbours on average senior citizens; which may sound dull, but actually gives a very nice feel for the 'traditional' life. One warm evening (in november) we hear a tape recorder playing Fado, when we turned the corner we saw a neighbourhood barbeque and people (the senior citizens I was referring to) dancing in the streets... I don't recall seeing anything similar ever in amsterdam (where we live)..
the appartment is comfortable, with bathroom, kitchen, washing machine etc!
For nice diners and drinks at night we recommend different neighborhoods (like Bairro alto). Many of the bars and restaurants in alfalma (The ones with the Fado programs) places com across as tourist "traps". A nice eating street in the neighbourhood: Rua de São João da Praça!
if your wife is happy then i think holiday is great.

A friend and I stayed at the appartment. It was clean, beautifully decorated, and Fatima and friends were extremely helpful when making arrangements to do the booking and later to meet. The location is good for me (not apt for persons with walking difficulties, though), and the price-value ratio is very good. Friendly, cosy and nice. I'd go back, no doubt.
