“Second time in Lisbon, second time in Alfama”

Could not be better! I love Alfama, the old town. Narrow streets, small bars and shops, quiet neighborhood. The apartment has all you need for living. Very happy with that!

“Wonderful apartment in perfect location”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016
4
people found this review helpful

Cristina's apartment is perfectly situated in the old part of Lisbon which means it is quiet at night but close to the metro station and tram stops. The area itself is a maze of steep steps, narrow lanes and pretty squares and has many restaurants and small shops for essentials. You can enjoy the benefits of staying in one of the most charming areas of the city, near to everything, but without the noise and clamour of being in the centre of town.

Inside, the apartment is beautifully finished - like staying in someone's home - with a view across the rooftops to the river where anything from small ferry boats to gigantic cruise ships can be seen. This is the real deal in terms of stylish and much-loved accommodation with proper shutters, beautiful floors, fully equipped kitchen and comfortable fixtures and fittings throughout..

Perhaps the best thing is Cristina herself, as she is a lovely person who genuinely wants people to enjoy their stay and provides her own map of interesting places to eat, café's and helpful information for visitors. She has great taste in pictures and furniture and it all makes for a very easy and relaxing stay.

“Perfect perfect and perfect!”

What a perfect apartment! Well appointed, amazing view, perfect service. Cristina was always available by email when you had a question. She also made a map which was indispensible for getting around the maze of the Alfama. (though we still managed to spend a lot of time getting lost.) (a lot!) (Don't lose the map). The kitchen is well appointed and even has some tea and a little pasta in it. (No guarantee for that - but it was nice to have something when we were too tired to shop or go out.) There are lots of places to lounge and even stretch out. Both the kitchen and the living room have a table and chairs. There are books and cool old postcards to look at. Cristina is a talented and very kind hostess.
I do recommend though that you pay more attention than we did about how to use the stove and the television!
If you are traveling with a baby (we weren't), note that there is also a crib and some other useful kid things.

“Lovely well-equipped bolt hole in Lisbon old town”
Reviewed 23 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

Lovely apartment in the heart of Alfama (old town) part of Lisbon. Extremely well-equipped and homely. It doesn't just have what we consider to be the essentials like a comfortable bed, a fridge and a decent shower but luxuries too including a welcoming bottle of wine, lovely views from the French balconies, a music centre, dishwasher, washing machine and every practical/potentially useful item you could think of including a detailed map of the local walkable area, guidebooks, cookery books, cork screw.....even a first aid kit and umbrella! We didn't cook but the kitchen seemed very well equipped and included those items that are irritating to have to buy like washing up liquid, cooking oil and salt. The tap water is perfectly drinkable (as it is throughout Portugal) but there was also a bottle of water chilling in the fridge. Because the apartment has lots of windows, its very well ventilated so no need for noisy air conditioning at night!

Christina the lovely 'landlady' very kindly arranged for a taxi to take us from and to the airport (fixed 15 euros per trip so no problems with getting ripped off by dodgy taxi drivers). She speaks excellent English.

Lots of restaurants in easy walking distance. Our favourite was Os Gazeteiros which have a different set meal every evening. Don't be put off by the lack of choice!

We didn't have or need a car for our 4 night stay. Trips to Sintra (bit expensive) and Cascais (cheap but lovely) were easy train rides away - the stations are an enjoyable 20-25 min walk away.

The appartement is perfect situated in the old heart of the Alfama, quiet and with a great view over the old part of Lisboa. Tram and taxi are only a few steps to walk, a lot of monuments - and important, a lot of restaurants - are in the neighbourhood.
Perfect is also the organisation of Cristina, the owner. From the very beginning, contacts by email, pick up at the airport and so on until the end of our week.
So there is nothing to propose to make it better ! Thank you , Cristina, to have the possibility to be guest for one week ! Until the next time !

“As wonderful as described”
Reviewed 13 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This apartment, and the owner, are as wonderful as previous reviewers have said. Cristina could not do enough for us, and we felt so at home. Lisbon is a wonderful city, and staying here made it complete.
