    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
    The apartment is located in one of the oldest buildings in the neighbourhood of Alfama, its foundations date back to the twelfth century. It was partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake and later was rebuilt by the Count of Arcos, viceroy of Brazil, to its housing in the eighteenth century.
    This is a unique opportunity of staying in a charming apartment, refurbished in 2013 , in a building that is part of the history of Lisbon, Portugal and Brazil.
    Well situated in the district of Alfama, the oldest quarter of Lisbon, and probably the most authentic. Of Arab origin, its name means “fountains”. Ramble through and lose yourself in it's medieval narrow streets, its alleys, squares and patios. Also near the Santa Luzia viewpoint, and next to the Church of The Infant Jesus and beside the...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 23 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights. Juan was very welcoming and kindly gave us complementary 'pasteis de nata' on our arrival. The location was very good; in the heart of quaint Alfama. The flat, although small, was cosy and clean with a modern style whilst retaining the charming old windows and floorboards, with lovely portugese tiles lining the dining room wall.
We were very comfortable. The flat has a good shower. The television worked well however we couldn't work out how to use the DVD player.
As we stayed in January we used the electric heaters, which worked, although seemed to switch themselves off on a timer, but this wasn't a problem for us and we could easily switch them back on.
The kitchen is small although has the basics for what you need (with included coffee maker for morning esspresso!)
The only negative we would say is that there was a slight urine(y) smell just at the entrance to the bottom of the small flight of stairs. This was obviously not a...

E' la prima volto (da quando usiamo Trip Advisor) che andiamo in una struttura con praticamente nessun commento. Per cui mi fa piacere essere tra i primi a premiare Juan (il proprietario) con una segnalazione completamente positiva.
Siamo andati qui fondamentalmente perchè amici ci avevano detto che il quartiere ALFAMA è senza dubbio uno dei più caratteristici di Lisbona: e questo era esattamente nel centro di Alfama. L'arrivo è stato rocambolesco perchè il taxi faceva fatica ad entrare nelle viette del centro di Alfama e faceva confusione tra Largo do Salvador e Rua do Salvador: alla fine gli ho passato al telefono Juan e si è risolto. Per inciso vi consiglio all'aeoroporto di andare a prendere i taxi alle partenze (costa meno 10/12 euro). E poi usatelo tranquillamente il taxi che con 5/8 euro si va in tutti i posti che contano.
L'appartamento ha un accesso indipendente dalla piazzetta: si accede per una scala assai ripida di 12 scalini (sconsigliato a chi ha problemi di...
