The space

Here, people call each other by their first names and you can hear fado (Portuguese traditional music) in every corner. Alfama is one of the most special neighborhoods in Europe and our apartment is here.
It is located in a building from the XVIII century, in the heart of Lisbon, north of Tagus River.With its alleys, narrow streets, stairways, tiny squares, churches, white houses with tile panels, Fado, grocery stores, our neighborhood is the authentic historical soul of Lisbon. Alfama is also known by the Popular Saints Festival, which occurs here, especially on the night of St. Anthony, on June 12.
Alfama is like a village within a big city where everybody knows each other. Even so, our building is not in the middle of Alfama, but at its entrance close to Santa Apolónia, where you can still feel its pulse but have some privacy.
The apartment, is small, has 30 squre meters, is on the 3rd floor, without lift, and its renovation works were completed by February 2013. We retained the majority of the features of the original house, adding a modern and practical décor. We included double-glazing that protects the house from any potential outside noise.
The apartment has natural light and a river view. It’s a cozy and charming apartment that includes one bedroom with a double bed, a kitchen, a bathroom and a living room with a single bed. The kitchen has all the usual appliances and utensils. Towels and bed linen are included.
Located next to the Fado museum, the Pantheon and the flea market (feira da ladra, in Portuguese), this house is within walking distance from downtown. You are a stroll away from Praça do Comércio, Castle of São Jorge, as well as the beautiful viewpoints of Portas do Sol, Graça and Senhora do Monte and the legendary tram nº 28.
Served by several buses and 5 minutes away from the subway/train station of Stª Apolónia, our house has a convenient location.

Goncalo is a great host! He always replied immediately, he had great tips for us and waited for us even though we arrived very late! I can definitely recommend his place since it's very good located near the metro and right at alfama which is really the most beautiful neighborhood and you have everything you need! :)

Gonçalo has been a great host. We checked in at 10:30 pm, which was absolutely no problem (as well as the check out at 6am). Gonçalo already waited for us at the apartment and helped us to carry our luggage up to the 3rd floor. The apartment is well located in the middle of Alfama with a great view on the river. It was very clean and Gonçalo put up a vent to beat the heat (~35 degrees celsius during the day), which helped us to cool down after a long day of walking around in the city. We can recommend a stay at Gonçalo's apartment at any time and would be glad to come back.

My wife and I had a lovely time staying at Gonçalo's apartment. It's very close to the Santa Apolonia metro, and the neighborhood has some great shops, pubs, bakeries, and restaurants. It's only about a 10-15 minutes walk to the centre of Lisbon, where all the hustle and bustle is. -- Gonçalo warmly greeted us on arrival, although we arrived later than expected. He was friendly, funny, helpful, and genuinely interested in our cultures and countries of residence. -- The apartment itself is well-decorated, clean, with all the amenities you would need, and a great view of the coastal river, which you can take in over breakfast. The place has character, and I have no hesitation in recommending it to visitors who don't want yet another cookie-cutter hotel experience. Live like one of the locals, stay in Gonçalo's apartment!

Great host and great location, lot of the sites are available by foot and several public transport lines are really close to the apartment. Nice area, silent enough to have a great time and take rest after a long day, but still close to the downtown. Goncalo was really helpful when we arrived, had good suggestions where to go or what to skip in the lack of time.
