Apartment, Private room - Lisboa, Portugal

Description

The house, where the room is located, is situated in the most traditional quarter of Lisbon, Alfama. The building was constructed just after the earthquake of Lisbon on 1755. The room has a magnificent view over the Tagus river. I live in the apartment with my boyfriend and we share the bathroom and the kitchen.

ALFAMA:
The oldest district of Lisbon, it spreads down the southern slope from the Castle of São Jorge to the Tagus river. Its name, derived from the Arabic Al-hamma, means fountains or baths. During the Islamic invasion of Iberia, the Alfama constituted the largest part of the city, extending west to the Baixa neighborhood. Increasingly, the Alfama became inhabited by fishermen and the poor: its fame as a poor neighborhood continues to this day. While the 1755 Lisbon Earthquake caused considerable damage throughout the capital, the Alfama survived with little damage, due to its compact labyrinth of narrow streets and small squares. It is a historical quarter of mixed-used buildings of homes with small shops, Fado bars and restaurants.

It's strategic location comes along with additional advantages;
- At two minute walk from the 'Santa Apolonia' metro station.
- Alfama is the oldest Quarter of the city with a good variety
of restaurants and cafes, and the best fado houses available.
- The house is conviniently located near by the Feira da Ladra (outdoor Flea market).
- Close to: National Panteão, Monastery of São Vicente,
Fado Museum and Military Museum.
- Lux Nightclub.
We welcome you!

    Besonders gefiel mir die freigelegte Holzkonstruktion (siehe Foto), die nach dem berühmten Erdbeben von Lissabon den neuerrichteten Wohnhäusern mehr Stabilität verliehen hat. Ausserdem sind die 100 Stufen in den 5. Sock ein gutes Training ;-) u. in der Wohnung hat man eine gute Aussicht über die Dächer der Alfama u. den Tejo. Gut Verkehrsanbindung zu Metro und Bahn, zu Fuß ist man sofort im Zentrum,

    Die Lage kann einfach nicht besser sein. In Alfama sicher dem schönsten Statdviertel in Lissabon.
    Die Wohnung ist sehr stilvoll eingerichtet und bietet einen wunderschönen ausblick über den rio tejo.
    150 m zur Metro, 100m zur Tram, 5m, 10m, 20, 50m zum nächsten Restaurant einfach ein sehr guter ausgangspunkt um Lissabon von seiner schönsten Seite her zu erkunden.
    Wir werden das nächste mal mit Sicherheit wieder dort unterkommen.

    Der Gastgeber ist sehr freundlich, unaufdringlich und gestaltet eine sehr entspannte, freundliche und coole Atmosphäre. Man kann die Küche mitbenutzen und bekommt gute Informationen über Lissabon.

The flat was very nice, perfect for a couple. We had everything we needed and the welcome package with Pasteis de Natta , Porto Wine and fresh fruits was a very nice gesture. The lovely Magdalena provided us with all the informations we needed to know about Lissbon. The neighborhood is charming, with a lot of good restaurants were is played also Fado music. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back :D. Thanks for everything Pedro!
