Room with a view of the River Tagus in Alfama

Other, Private room - Lisbon, Portugal

ID 53422

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.

    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 location is good. The apartment is ok. However, this does not have any value, since there were bed bugs in the apartment. I was covered by bites, which made me suffer in my holidays. Therefore, I cannot recommend this place...

This place was amazing, the picture do not do it justice! It's wonderfully decorated, close enough to enjoy the city and night life & conveniently just down the road from the train station. I booked the houe for 7 friends and there was more than enough room. Everybody was very impressed with the location and the house itself. The host was equally amazing! He was always around if we needed and offered a lot of valuable advice to enjoying our holiday. Quick to respond to emails prior to booking and happy to answer any questions. I definitely recommend Lisbon as a holiday destination & this house to stay in - you won't be disappointed!

Die Unterkunft war für uns drei eigentlich etwas zu klein, sonst aber in Ordnung. Für zwei Personen ist sie genau richtig. Von hier aus konnte man die meisten interessanten Punkte in Lissabon eigentlich, wenn man es wollte, zu Fuß erreichen.
