Room with a view of the River Tagus in Alfama

Other, Private room - Lisbon, 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 in 1755. The room has a magnificent view over the Tagus river.

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 neighbourhood. Increasingly, the Alfama became inhabited by fishermen and the poor: its fame as a poor neighbourhood 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!

    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.

Bel appartement (tout est neuf et de bon goût), trés bien situé, facile d'accés avec le metro à deux pas. La location est gérée par un hôtel situé quelques maisons plus loin, ce qui rend bien des services (consigne pour les bagages à l'arrivée et au départ, renseignements divers etc...). Hôtes au petit soin et trés soucieux de la qualité du service rendu. Je recommande vivement ce logement .

Cute little apartment in a great location, walking distance to old town. The neighbourhood is not too touristy yet, small local shops and restaurants, but in 5 minutes you are in the tourist part. The only thing that was a bit unfortunate was the noise during the night from garbage trucks and cleaning crews. The motors and talk of the workers was extremely loud and woke us up several times on Saturday and Monday night. Sunday night was quiet though. This is of course no fault of Charles Emmanuel.

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,
