Location and Surroundings

The apartment is situated right in the middle of Alfama, just 2 minutes walk down some steps from the marvellous "Portas do Sol" viewpoint, one of the best known areas of Alfama due to its wonderful view of the area towards the river.

From this area it is just a 5 minutes walk to the "Sé", which is Lisbon's Cathedral and 10 minutes to the Castle of São Jorge.

The Beco do Garcês street is pedestrian only, but we offer cheap parking only for our guests at the Alfama car park accessible from the "Largo das Portas do Sol" street.

The area contains many traditional cafeterias, bars and restaurants, as well as the small village-type shops typical of Alfama.

The Portas do Sol is a magnificent viewpoint, looking out over the rooftops of Alfama and towards the River Tagus.


Additional information

- This is a non-smoking apartment and no pets are allowed.
- There is a 150 euros damage deposit, which will be refunded in full as long as no damage is done to the apartments (this amount will be increased to 250 euros for stays of longer than 4 weeks, and to 600 euros for stays of more than 2 months)
- Standard check-in from 3pm (15h00) and check-out before 12pm (12h00); however, you can almost always leave your bags, or if there are no other guests arriving/departing on the same day we will do our best to arrange an earlier check-in or later check-out at no extra cost, please just ask.
- Surcharge for late check-in after 10pm (22h00): 25 euros, but there is no additional cleaning fee.
- There is no lift or elevator in the building, making accessibility very difficult for wheelchair users, the physically impaired or those with mobility problems. Please note that in the historic centre of Lisbon, there are virtually no residential buildings with lifts. In Alfama it is practically impossible. Only the very new buildings in the historic centre of Lisbon have lifts, and normally these new buildings don't have apartments for tourists.

Please note that from the 1st of January 2016, Lisbon City Council will be charging a city tax of EUR 1 per person per night which is not included in the total price and should be paid during check-in. This tax is charged to guests aged 13 and older. It is subject to a maximum amount of EUR 7 per guest.

The apartment was exactly as advertised. Roger was very good at communicating and provided me with extensive documentation in advance on the apartment and places of interest (grocery story, restaurants, etc) in the area. The detailed instructions on how to get to the apartment were not only extremely accurate but also very welcome! I would love to stay here again.

Charming experiment in this charming flat. Everything was perfect, the place was really the same as on the pictures and no bad surprise at all. Informations provided and Mauro's welcome allowed us to feel really comfortable as we were beginning our discovery of the city. This flat is worth a try.

I stayed last week in this apartment in Lisboa and it was a pleasant place to stay and know Lisbon. Everything was ready when we arrived and we did not have any problem during our stay. At first it was a bit difficult to go up all those stairs but we got used to them quickly. It was near the Castelo area and you could go walking to Bairro Alto, Baixa, just around 20 minutes, and of course Alfama. The location is great and just in 1 minute you can see one of the best views of Lisbon.

Charming, mystic and modern apartment in the middle of old Lisbon. If you want to see Lisbon from the eyes of the locals, learn and experience their culture and way of living go no further, you have found the right place to stay! The neighbours are very friendly and helpful and the old part of the town is full of narrow streets and winding stairs. The apartment was tastefully decorated, extremely clean, very quite and serene. The rooftop window gives you the most magnificent of views. Experience 5 star accommodation without the price tag.
