ALFAMA NÁDIA is a one bedroom duplex apartment located on the first floor of a typical building and it comprises a lounge area with a comfortable double sofa bed, a toilet and a bathroom and kitchen. The apartment's location is extremely privileged, and is located less than 10 minutes walk from the Metro station Santa Apolonia (blue line). The city center – Praça do Comércio - is 10 minutes away on foot, a distance easily covered when it is to landscape the Alfama district. The Castelo de São Jorge one of Lisbon's most famous landmarks is also less than 10 minutes up the hill. Learn more about this authentic neighbourhood in the text bellow!
The Alfama Quarter is the oldest one in Lisbon, and it was founded by the Arabs who named it “Al-hama” (the fountains). It is difficult to believe that this humble neighbourhood was once the most desirable quarter of Lisbon. For the Moors, the tightly packed alleyways around the fortified castle comprised the whole city.
The buildings survived the 1755 earthquake and although there are no Moorish houses still standing, the quarter retains its kashbah-like-layout. The true charm of these quarters lies in its narrow steep streets ending in sunny squares from which there are stairways leading to typical streets and flowery alleys and fountains. This is where you can find the most genuine traditional commerce, far away from the big hypermarkets, with neighbourhood groceries, fruit stands, modest restaurants, and all purpose stores. The only way to get to know these quarters is to stroll through them. Embark on this adventure, let your intuition guide you and get lost in these streets and alleys to the sound of Fado.local.
Above Alfama the imposing, majestic and sober Castelo de São Jorge (Castle of Saint Jorge), crowns Lisbon´s most important eastern hill. This natural vantage point, was a defensive stronghold and royal palace until the end of the 16th century.
Other Attractions are a few steps away. You will need to climb just a few streets to find yourself in front of the Pantheon, or at the Flea Market (If you are interested in antique stuff and second hand bargains you can find almost everything at the Feira da Ladra flea Market every Saturday and Tuesday in Campo de Santa Clara). To eat there are quite a few cheap typical Portuguese tascas around, but if you are more into sophisticated stuff don´t miss the Bica do Sapato restaurant (co-owned by the actor John Malkovich), Lisbon´s hippest and trendiest restaurant, or the Faz Figura restaurant featuring Portuguese specialties and an impressive city and river views. Here, the visitor will be also close to the most recent and trendiest nightlife routes, beginning in the new Alfama fado parlours and ending up in Clube Ferroviário or at the famous and trendy Lux nightclub. The city center (Praça do Comércio) is about 10 minutes away on foot, a distance easily covered when it is to landscape the Alfama district. The Castelo de São Jorge one of Lisbon's most famous landmarks is less than 9 minutes.

very large apartment - centrally located - very friendly and reliable agency - all the best - clean and tidy - not brand new but for a few days completely ok
sehr große Wohnung - zentral gelegen - sehr freundliche und zuverlässige Agentur - alles bestens - sauber und ordentlich - nicht mehr ganz neu aber für ein paar tage völlig ok
We had wonderful days in her apartment! The view is stunning! Not only the river but from all the windows (too bad they were not very clean). Everything worked flawlessly (kitchen, bathroom, wifi super fast, plenty of dishes, clean linen). The location is also good, with bus 714 you can easily reach all major port locations.
We enjoyed the day very much! Thank you for everything!
Wir hatten wunderbare Tage in ihrer Wohnung! Die Aussicht ist umwerfend! Nicht nur auf den Fluss sondern aus allen Fenstern (schade waren sie nicht ganz sauber). Alles funktionierte einwandfrei (Küche, Bad, wifi super schnell, genügend Geschirr, saubere Wäsche). Auch die Lage ist gut, mit Bus 714 erreicht man schnell alle wichtigen Anschlussorte.
Wir haben die Tage sehr genossen! Danke für alles!
Very nice, newly decorated, spacious and quiet apartment.
Everything is there, whether in the kitchen, bedroom or bathroom.
Ideal for two people but can also accommodate three or four people.
Suggestion --- a second access to the bathroom., As the third person must through the bedroom. Sorry!
The apartment is good, bus lines and shopping facilities are just around the corner.
It's worth it, we felt very comfortable, every time again.
Thanks ... Heinz, Doris and Theresa
Sehr schöne, neu eingerichtete, geräumige und ruhige Wohnung.
Alles da, ob in der Küche, Schlafzimmer oder im Bad.
Ideal für zwei Personen, aber auch Platz für drei oder vier Personen.
Verbesserungsvorschlag---einen zweiten Zugang zum Bad., denn die dritte Person muss durchs Schlafzimmer. Leider!
Die Wohnung liegt gut, Busslinien und Einkaufsmöglichkeit sind direkt um die Ecke.
Es lohnt sich, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, jeder Zeit wieder.
Danke...Heinz, Doris und Theresa
Lovely apartment! It was clean and spacious.
Small point for improvement: there was a dishwasher, but there were no dishwasher. This would be handy.
Heerlijk appartement! Het was schoon en lekker ruim.
Klein puntje voor verbetering: er was wel een vaatwasmachine, maar er lagen geen vaatwastabletten. Dit zou wel handig zijn.
Positives: the housing situation, the size of the apartment is well maintained
The downside: the bathroom door to the kitchen and no light in the portal, we had to come up with the mobile light because there's nothing there.
Lo positivo: la situación del alojamiento, el tamaño del apartamento, está bien cuidado
Lo negativo: la puerta del baño da a la cocina y no hay luz en el portal, teníamos que subir con la luz del móvil porque no se ve nada.
Beautifully apartment with stunning views over river and city. Very nice and friendly minibar / mini market just around the corner, authentic Portuguese, like the whole neighborhood.
Disadvantage kits: little tight in terms of crockery when you are with the four. No closing some interior door in the apartment.
Fraai appartement met prachtige uitzichten over rivier en stad. Erg leuke en vriendelijke minibar/ minimarkt direct om de hoek, authentiek Portugees, net als de hele buurt.
Nadeeltjes: beetje krap qua serviesgoed als je met zijn vieren bent. Geen enkele binnendeur in het appartement sluit.
the apartment is centrally located and well groomed the views are breathtaking But the major flaw is the inability to get close to the door to unload luggage also have to climb to fourth without elevator that looks like a floor 11 and to finish the bathroom has a Main unbearable smells unfortunately we repeat this apartment
el apartamento es céntrico y está bien arreglado las vistas son impresionantes Pero el gran defecto es la imposibilidad de poder acercarse hasta la puerta para descargar el equipaje además hay que subir a un cuarto sin ascensor que parece un piso 11 y para rematar el baño tiene unos olores a cañería insoportables lamentablemente en este apartamento nos repetimos
A beautiful apartment. Very bright, very quiet, nicely designed, centrally located, great view from the balcony and the windows over the roofs of Bairro Alto and the river. Key and apartment handover uncomplicated and fix. Kitchen facilities so-so, but the basic equipment is okay. Small problem: the hot water thermal baths we have not got to work, but this was not as critical in the future of our stay. The stairs to the apartment is long and steep, so nothing for people with knee problems. But that has not affected us thank God, everything was cool and my daughter and I are satisfied.
Eine schöne Wohnung. Sehr hell, sehr leise, freundlich gestaltet, zentral gelegen, super Aussicht vom Balkon und den Fenstern über die Dächer von Bairro Alto und über den Fluß. Schlüssel- und Wohnungsübergabe unkompliziert und fix. Kücheneinrichtung so làlà, aber die Grundausstattung ist okay. Kleines Problem: die Warmwassertherme haben wir nicht zum Laufen gekriegt, was allerdings bei der Kürze unseres Aufenthaltes nicht so entscheidend war. Die Treppe zur Wohnung ist lang und steil, also nix für Leute mit Knieproblemen. Aber da uns das gottseidank nicht betroffen hat, war alles cool und meine Tochter und ich sind zufrieden.
easy arrival and departure, typical old house with enough space for 4 people, nice view of the Tagus River and the old town, central, interior of the accommodation in order, but only 2 of 4 hobs available.
unkomplizierte An-und Abreise,typischer Altbau mit ausreichend Platz für 4 Personen, schöner Blick auf den Fluss Tejo und die Altstadt, zentral gelegen, Einrichtung der Wohnung in Ordnung, jedoch nur 2 von 4 Herdplatten verfügbar.
We had a stay with three People and we enjoyed a lot. The flat was absolutely great, clean, quiet and nevertheless central. The correspondence was trouble free. We have even got 2 Keys and there was a Hairdryer actually. Next time we would like book it again. Big thank you!
