- SQM 50
Alfama Views Apartment is a newly renovated, air-conditioned property for up to 4 guests in the heart of the charming old town Alfama district, in central Lisbon. It is located on the third floor of a historic but completely renovated building, with no lift, and has one bedroom with a double bed, a double sofa-bed in the living room, a kitchenette, and a separate bathroom with shower. It offers truly magnificent views of the River Tagus and the traditional Alfama rooftops.
The front door opens out into the bright living room, with two windows that allow the natural sunlight to stream in and which also offer wonderful river views, over the red-tiled rooftops of this historic district called Alfama. There is a comfortable sofa which folds out into a double bed, allowing two more guests to sleep here if necessary. Seated here on the sofa, it is possible to enjoy the privileged view of the river via one of the windows or relax while watching the flatscreen TV. There is a small dining table with two chairs, and also a bench seat for 2 more, should you wish to cook for yourself, and another large window affording more great views of the churches and nearby cruise terminal. The air-conditioning unit can cool and also provide heat.
In one corner of this living and dining area, there is a small but functional kitchen, which is fully equipped with microwave, oven, hotplate, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, and all the necessary pots and pans, cutlery and crockery and other kitchen utensils for a self-catering stay in Lisbon.
The corridor by the front door leads to the bathroom and double bedroom. The bedroom itself is bright and has a window with a tiny balcony offering more river views. This side of the house also catches the sun which makes sitting at this balcony a pleasant and relaxing experience. There are a double bed and some extra seating, and this room is also air-conditioned.
The bathroom is clean and modern. It has a wide mirror above the wash-basin and a spacious shower cubicle, as well as a WC. The storage space here houses the washing machine.
This cozy apartment is located in the heart of the old town historical area of Lisbon's city center, called Alfama. This area of central Lisbon is one of the oldest and has dozens of traditional cafés and Fado restaurants scattered about the maze of narrow, cobbled streets. From the apartment, it is just a short walk to the Portas do Sol and Santa Luzia viewpoints, which provide marvelous photo opportunities and great views of the old rooftops, and the wide estuary of the River Tagus.
The São Jorge Castle and Cathedral are also within easy walking distance, as well as other notable sights such as the Fado Museum, The National Pantheon or the Feira da Ladra Flea Market held on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
The Santa Apolonia train and metro station is also just 10 minutes walk away, and inside the station, there is a good supermarket called Pingo Doce, although there are also many smaller shops in the area.
Parking is not easy here since this is the center of a large city, but just 3 minutes away there is a public carpark at the Largo das Portas do Sol, while another possibility is to use the cheaper open-air carpark near the Santa Apolonia ferry terminal, which costs around 6€ per day.
Several buses and trams stop at the Portas do Sol, including the famous Number 28 Tram, which we recommend our guests take for a unique travel experience.
