Alfama River Views Apartment has 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and can accommodate up to 6 guests if the double sofa-bed in the living room is also used.

The bedroom on this floor has 2 single beds and a very spacious wardrobe with plenty of room for clothes, suitcases and other belongings.

The apartment building is easily accessible by public transport and cars or taxis can stop right outside the front door, although only to drop off bags or suitcases. Parking here isn't easy, but just 5 minutes walk away there is a public car park by the riverfront which costs less than 8 euros per day.
The Santa Apolonia metro and train station is just 5 minutes walk away for those who wish to take public transport, and inside this station, there is a convenient "Pingo Doce" supermarket open 7 days a week, from 9 am to 9 pm. The famous Feira da Ladra is a local flea market held on Tuesdays & Saturdays just 300 meters up the street, and the magnificent dome of the National Pantheon looms large 2 minutes away. Almost next to the apartment building, there is a quality restaurant called Faz Figura, and there are small cafés and restaurants wherever your feet take you in this area.
There are plenty of small cobbled streets to discover, with sights like the Fado Museum almost around every corner - we recommend you discover the area on foot and walk up to the castle which is just 15 minutes away, or all the way to the center of Lisbon which is reachable in less than 20 minutes. Taxis and buses are available everywhere, and it's just a short walk to the stops of the famous 28 tram.
