Situated near Rua dos Remedios in Alfama, in a quiet and calm street without traffic, this apartament is full of charm and a mix between old and modern.
The apartment is on the ground floor of an ancient building that was renovated recently . The recovering works... tried to preserve the most typical and traditional materials, like old tiles, wood structure and stone walls, and the result is a charming apartment where it was added a mezzannine (1,85 m height) with a third room!
The apartment even has part of a cannon that was found in the area, used as table leg's (you can see it on the living room photo, with a yellow lamp on top). Here was the site of the Artillery Factory since the 16th century!
On the main floor it has:
* 1 bedroom, with private bathroom, with double bed
* 1 bedroom with double bed (can be prepared as twin beds)
* 1 bathroom
* kitchen fully equipped
* living/dinning room
Upstairs, in the mezzanine, (just attention that the ceilling height is 1,85 m) there is:
* a small working area , where you can put your laptop if needed;
* TV room with a double sofa-bed
* and 1 bedroom with 1 double bed + 2 twin beds (or another double bed) + toilete.
The bedrooms are interior(no windows) but they are very confortable as it is an "old construction" with thick walls that keep the temperature inside almost always constant either in winter or summer.

What a great flat! Right in a quiet travessa (alley) in the alfama that was incredibly quiet. You can walk everywhere easily and it is just far enough out of the main tourist drag to make you feel like you live in a real neighborhood. They have very tastefully redone this ancient building and the mix of modern and ancient is beautiful. The beds are very comfortable and if we ever return to Lisbon, this is where we will stay.
O top of that, everyone from heart and Soul Lisbon was great to deal with. They were responsive, flexible and friendly. Plus very punctual, which is important for weary travelers. Great value, especially considering location and number of people who can comfortably sleep here.

We had another great time in Lisbon, and the appartment was in such a wonderful position. The area had such a good friendly feel to it with all you wanted on the door step. Good resturants and shops for all your daily needs at your fingertips.
Thank you to to heart and soul for a warm welcome and tips on where to eat and how to get around. Taxis were organised and arrived on time, we will certainly be using then again and would record them to our friends and family.
As a 6' 4" man the upstairs with its low ceiling was a challenge but down stairs was so bright and the renovations down to a high standard while staying true to the age of the building.

Nice apartment. Clean. Cosy. You have to be short if you want to stay on the second floor, because you will hit the ceiling.
The location is perfect. Alfama is nice and the rest of town is in walking distance or by tramp.
If you look for a supermarket it is at the railway station near by. There is a bakery just a few meters away from the apartment.

This place was wonderful! Located in a beautiful neighborhood away from the tourist areas yet perfectly situated to get to all the wonderful site seeing spots of Lisbon. We loved the charm of the old building yet filled with all the modern conveniences. The apartment was perfectly appointed with all the needed items. It was inviting and roomy enough for two families. Goncalo and Philip were incredibly helpful and answered all our questions. It was a short distance to the metro and to many lovely shops and cafes. We loved exploring the cooble stone streets and alleys. We especially loved Ricardo the owner at arcaz Velho Tapas and Wine Bar and Gabriella and her wonderful scarf shop. We felt like we were a part of the family and neighborhood. We can't wait to return to Lisbon. Obrigada!
Four friends stayed for three nights so we had a double bed each. I don't think it can comfortably accomodate more unless you are happy to share a bed or have someone sleep on a fold out couch. Two separate bedrooms (one ensuite) downstairs - no windows! Showers good in ensuite and main bathroom. Upstairs is really a mezzanine level as anyone over 5ft 10in would hit their head on the ceiling! There is one bedroom with two double beds and a small bathroom (no shower). The greeter was very nice and spent 20 mins going through a map in detail with notes she had written. The wi-fi is terrible! The area is the old town which means a 20 minute walk to the city centre. Overall we were happy with our stay but were glad there was not more than four in our group for a confortable stay.
Modern funky apartment - perfect for our pre teen family of 5.

We visited in the winter was pleased there was heating for every room. Nice touches such as fluffy towels, bottled water, tea coffee salt pepper etc
My husband could just stand upright in the the mezzanine floor but the kids loved it up there in their own private area. Apartment was very clean and freshly painted. The metro station just down the road, buses and taxis all nearby. Small convenience store and bakery 1 min walk away. Visit the Taberna Moderna for Portuguese and Spanish tapas. Modern and funky. Rua dos Bacalhoeiros, 18, Lisbon 1100-070, Portugal The street had a few nice looking eateries. Check in service was great very helpful and they have a great guide of things to do and places to eat in a folder inside the apartment.

We visited Lisbon in December 2011 and stayed at these lovely apartments. Our group had 5 people, but to stay in these apartments can be 8-10.
Very good location in old town, there's the beauty of the history around you. Nearby are many small cafes with fado, this is not for tourists and for those who appreciate local traditions.
At the same time, not far from the apartment is located railway station, there is a metro station, there is a good supermarket.
The apartment is beautiful, it has everything for a good rest after walking in Lisbon. Historical reasons are organically combined in the design of the apartment. It is very clean, cozy, comfortable.
Owners of the apartment were very kind, all wishes were fulfilled. Also, we have received from them many valuable and useful information about Lisbon, entertainment, public transport.
I will recommend this apartment to my friends. And also look forward to meeting again with the Lisbon and be sure to stop in these apartments.

The owners of the apartment were extremely helpful and friendly, and went out of their way to make our stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. Eduardo welcomed us to the apartment upon our arrival and gave us lots of of useful information about the city - as well as a number of restaurant and bar recommendations which turned out to be fantastic.
The apartment itself was incredible - really beautiful and extremely well designed. The photos reflect it accurately. It was a really special place to stay - with the restored original brickwork and lots of great features.
The location was great too - the bus stop just a couple of minute's walk away took you straight into the centre of town, and also to the station where trains take you to Belem. Plus it is located in the heart of alfama, with great walks, bars and restaurants on your doorstep.
We had a fantastic stay in this apartment, and I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

This apartment was fabulous for our stay. We are a family from London who visit Lisbon at least once a year, we stayed in the apartment with the other half of our family from New York. The house comfortably slept the 7 of us and it was nice because the children had the TV upstairs while the adults had a room to socialize downstairs. The quirky features of the apartment were particularly impressive, the living room and kitchen were bright and airy. The apartment has lots of individual features that made it unique but it also made it feel like home. It was located in an amazing area, slightly set back from the main road so it was quiet but with less than a 2minute walk you're surrounded by life. We would definitely stay again, hopefully soon.

The apartment was absolutely wonderful. Beautifully decorated and appointed with all the equipment one could want. Especially loved the hoist for getting heavy luggage to the second level. The owners had thought of everything! Their prompt respons to issues (there was a blackout one night) was much appreciated.
Would recommend this apartment without hesitation and hope to stay there again someday.

This apartment is exactly what we needed! The apartment is completely refurbished but kept the charm of an historical building.It is very comfortable and a lot of space (2 floors) for our child to run around...
We spent only one night but we will certainly stay there when we come back to lisbon!
