Having a perfect location in Alfama, right in the best viewpoint (Largo das Portas do Sol), near great sights and attractions, the studio flat has a great and modern design. It is suitable for up to 2 persons, with an open space which combines living room, bedroom (sofabed) and kitchenette into a single room, and bathroom. It has free internet wifi access, heaters for winter and fans for the summer. Rossio, Bairro Alto, Baixa, Chiado and the Castle are all within walking distance.
At 15 minutes walking, you'll be in Lisbon's nightlife at Bairro Alto. Within 800 meters distance, all public transportations (Metro station, many buses, trams, train) and cafes, restaurants. Lisbon’s beaches are 30 minutes away by train! The location is Largo das Portas do Sol, the major tourist viewpoint of Alfama.
It is a ground floor apartment, with the door giving direct access to the street ... very typical and really great if you rent a bike!
CAUTION: the apartment is at a pedestrian street, and - like everywhere else at Alfama - only accessible via some stairs in the street & alley, as visible in the photos.
Check-in after 8pm has an additional cost of 20€.

Perfect location, very convenient. Close to the underground station (10-15 minutes) , just a few steps up to the tram 28 stop and the famous view points. Neighbourhood full of local restaurants and bars with fado. Must see that at night. If you like walking it's close enough to walk to the very centre of Lisbon. But remember, Alfama is on the hill so steps, steps, steps up and down. Also as a very touristy place it might be noisy a bit.
The apartment is tiny but really cosy. It has everything you need and if there is something wrong Olivier - the landlord is ready to help, so don't hesitate to ask.
Of course nothing is really perfect so there are some things to improve. I gave Olivier some tips which can make the place better. I'm sure he will do it. And if you are offered to have a lift from the airport - take it. Marta the driver is really helpful and nice girl.
All in all, I recommend the place in the heart of Alfama.
Olivier's apartment is a very cosy place!
Our stay was prepared in every detail. We received valuable quidances include a range of issues.
Olivier is a very kindly and helpful person. He answered on all our questions and help in any matter.
I think that everyone who will choose this place will be very satisfied from that choice.
I recommenig Olivier's apartment very much!
In the morning we want to leave our apartment. Dutch tourist are enjoining the beautiful historic center with a lot of narrow streets and stairs decorated with flower pots. My husband open the idyllic green door and say also in Dutch: ' 'Good morning!' The Dutch people were totally overwhelmed and said to us, we didn't expected someone from Holland from a apartment like this! What a beautiful place to stay your days in Lisbon!'
And we agree! It is a beautiful place to stay, the apartment was a little bit smaller than we expected, but the nice location compensate everything. When you love to walk (specially stairs), this is a nice location to walk to the city center, the Tajo (river) and Castelo de Sao Jorge. For the other things you can walk to the train and bus station.
Enjoy your stay!
Olivier is very organized in the exchange of information on the apartment and Lisbon. We found no problems with housing and its indications we arrived by subway without any worries too. The apartment is very clean and match the photos. With Mickaël we had a great stay in Lisbon ;-) It is strongly recommended!
Olivier est très organisé dans l'échange d'informations relatives à l'appartement et à Lisbonne. Nous avons trouvé sans aucun problème le logement et grâce à ses indications nous sommes arrivés en métro sans aucun soucis aussi. L'appartement est très propre et correspond aux photos. Avec Mickaël nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Lisbonne ;-) On recommande vivement !
In the first instance, it was our apartment and offered that was not the same as we had booked. However, in the same street. After an e-mail, we could choose whether we wanted to stay here or 2 doors could stay later in the booked apartment. The apartment is small, but we knew that already. The bed is a drama, a bit grubby too, is not tasty. Location of the apartment is ideal, right in the old center.
In de eerste instantie werd ons en appartement aangeboden dat niet hetzelfde was als we hadden geboekt. Wel in dezelfde straat. Na een mailtje konden we kiezen of we hier wilden blijven of 2 deuren verderop konden verblijven in het geboekte appartement. Het appartement is klein, maar dat wisten we al. Het bed is een drama, beetje smoezelig ook, ligt niet lekker. Ligging van het appartement is ideaal, midden in het oude centrum.
Small apartment, but great location, very presentable, and equipped with everything a single person or couple might need for a short stay.
Very good stay at Olivier.
Very good support from him, and an exemplary communication. Feel free to contact him to arrange your stay in Lisbon
We will be back

The truth is that I loved the apartment, which is just like the photos:
Bright, with touches of color that blend space making you feel cómodo.Por other hand despite not being very spacious for two people and is perfect when cooking or perform some task you have no problem.
The apartment is located in a charming neighborhood and allows you to visit a lot of sites on foot and enjoying both his cultura.Tan seen as well it is close to a supermarket and pharmacy something important.
I hope you enjoy !!!
Hola a todos ;)
La verdad es que el apartamento me encantó, es tal cual como en las fotos:
Luminoso, con toques de color que armonizan el espacio haciendo que te sientas cómodo.Por otro lado a pesar de no ser muy amplio para dos personas esta perfecto y a la hora de cocinar o realizar alguna tarea no tienes ningún problema.
El apartamento esta localizado en una zona con encanto y te permite poder visitar un montón de sitios andando y disfrutando tanto de vistas como de su cultura.Tan bien esta cerca de un supermercado y farmacia algo importante.
Espero que lo disfrutéis!!!
The studio is well located in the old quarter of the city and only 15 minutes walk from my conference venue. It is a pedestrian zone so the taxi dropped me off some distance away and it was a struggle to find it on the first day.
The studio is pleasant and well equipped. Unfortunately the sofa bed was not very comfortable and I suffered with my back. The neighbourhood was extremely noisy, with crowds of children playing and screaming outside my door until late, then adults until 2am. There is a restaurant a few doors away where much of the noise came from. It would be good if next time I could bring my own bed or mattress.
Olivier is a very approachable host. From the time of booking, he made contact by e-mail, and he foresaw our useful information about the studio, how to get there, useful places in the immediate area (shops and eateries), museums etc, all illustrated with Google Maps images.
The studio is indeed not large, but extremely well equipped and comfortable. The location is fantastic, right in the old Alfama, entrance directly to an alley. All in all a great place for a couple that loves each other very much. Two more advice based on his own experience: beware of pickpockets on tram 28 (sigh) and go once food and listen to Fado tavern A Baiuca, Rua de S. Miguel 20, few stairs away downwards, few minutes walk.

Olivier is een zeer benaderbare gastheer. Vanaf het moment van de boeking maakte hij contact per email, en voorzag hij onze van nuttige informatie over de studio, hoe er te komen, nuttige plekken in de directe omgeving (winkeltjes en eethuisjes), musea enz, alles geïllustreerd met Google Maps plaatjes.
De studio is inderdaad niet groot, maar buitengewoon compleet ingericht en geriefelijk. De ligging is fantastisch, midden in het oude Alfama, ingang direct aan een steegje. Alles bij elkaar een aanrader voor een stelletje dat erg veel van elkaar houdt. Nog twee adviezen gebaseerd op eigen ervaring: pas op voor zakkenrollers in tram 28 (zucht) en ga een keer eten en Fado luisteren in taveerne A Baiuca, Rua de S. Miguel 20, paar trappetjes af naar beneden, paar minuutjes lopen.
