Friendly and helpful owners. Complete equipped 2nd floor apartment. Very nice and tastefully decorated place to stay. Hidden away from the street at the inner side of the outside walls there is a little balcony to have breakfast in the sun. Quiet little streets around. Some cosy far away talking of people in the late evening. 1 step from train and metro station. We used the train to go to a conference in Oriente. Also located in the middle of the old alfama-quarter.
We both will surely consider return on this place when coming back to Lisbon.
If you are big you will surely meet the beautiful big old oak beam in one of the two the bathrooms.
Thank you for your lovely review. I hope you didn't hurt yourself on the oak beam. Portuguese people are not tall so we don't have that problem but I will make a mental note and start alerting tall people for it;). I wish you all the best and I hope to receive you again in one of our apartments.
"As advertised. ... this apartment in alfama allowed us to feel a"

It was just what we were looking for, walking distance to all the attractions and excellent restaurants close by. The neighbours were friendly especially Maria at the bottom of the stairs. The location would not be appropriate for anyone who cannot climb stairs or walk up hills. You cannot drive to the door if you have a car but a taxi can. However, you still have 2 flights to the apartment.
We loved it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartment.
Thank you for your kind review. I will put in the descriptions that the apartment is not reachable by car although if you have reduced mobility we can arrange for your car to take you to the front of the apartment. About the two flights of stairs there is really nothing we can do. Your review is really helpful for us to make sure the next guests have all the info the need. Thank you so much.

What a wonderful way to visit Portugal for the first time. Maria & Pedro were wonderful and made everything so easy from picking up at the airport to suggestions and tips for places to eat and visit. Wandering the streets of alfama we became familiar with many of the shopkeepers and neighbors.
We were 4 single women and this was perfect set up with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Highly recommend this property, only draw back was it is noisy on Saturday night. Parties went on to wee hours of morning, but it did sound like fun.
