The space

Discover Lisbon from this priviledged location penthouse duplex apartment in the most genuine and picturesque quarter of Lisbon - Alfama.

Considered the birth place of Fado, Alfama is Lisbon's Moorish time capsule: a medina-like district of narrow, winding streets and palm-shaded squares home of flea markets, original cafes, craft shops, tipical restaurants and fado clubs.

The apartment is just a few steps aways from popular attractions like São Jorge Castle, Sé Cathedral, National Pantheon, Fado Museum and in walking distance to neighborhood quarters of Baixa, Bairro Alto and Chiado.

The famous tram 28 and sigthseeing service buses are just arround the corner to help you explore the rest of the city and other Lisbon main sights.

Living room - sofa bed, puff seat, dining table for 4 people, flat cable tv and wireless internet free of charge.
Kitchen - fully equipped with stove, oven, microwave, fridge, kettle, toaster, washing machine and steam iron.
Bathroom - bathroom with shower and hair dryer.

Bedroom - Double size bed, guest hanging closet.

A pleasant stay at Rui's apartment on a very quaint little street. Clean and well equipped. A great location with everything in walking distance. Super kiosk at the top of the hill with a perfect view for sunset.

Rui's apartment is a perfect way to experience Lisbon like a local! Couldn't have asked for a better location in Alfama, great views and close to the tram line for getting around. The apartment is clean, an ideal size for a couple and the greeting by Rui's concierge João was very friendly (he met us at 1am due to a late flight). Unfortunately during the first night I was bitten from head to toe by bed bugs which I then discovered I was severely allergic to, making much of my time in Lisbon uncomfortable. Rui's solution to this was to offer us the sofa bed in the living room until he could get a professional in to resolve the problem which he said he would try to organise for the next day. After a sleepless night we were unsure of the plan so I contacted Rui to then discover he couldn't get a professional in for a further two nights which after visiting a pharmacist for medication I was advised was not an option as it would be dangerous for me to be bitten again. We ended up having to find last minute accommodation (in a completely different part of Lisbon) for the two nights until the problem was resolved. We returned back to Alfama and Rui's apartment two days later once the bugs had been treated and spent our last 4 nights here, enjoying Lisbon. I was adamant not to let the pain or worry ruin our holiday but it did add a lot of stress and we ended up out of pocket for medication and the expense of last minute accommodation. The apartment is a really lovely place and it's a shame that our experience was affected by the bugs. Bed bugs can happen in any home and it does not affect the cleanliness of the place although the way and the speed that it is handled can. Rui happily refunded the 2 nights that we had to stay elsewhere which we appreciated but we do feel like this was a problem that could have been avoided. Minus the bed bugs, our time in Rui's apartment was enjoyable.

We loved Rui's apartment- great value for money and in perfect location. It is small, but for two of us it was perfect. Rui also lets us check out later because of our flight time. Would recommend

Had an amazing time in Lisbon and really think that staying at Rui's flat in the heart of Alfama has a lot to do with that. A few issues with the Wi-Fi but other that we were very happy there. Absolutely recommend.

Response from Rui:
Hi Gavin, thank you for your review. After many hours on the phone with my internet support, they have pin-pointed the Wi-Fi issues to a defect in the router. The router has been changed and now everything is running smoothly as expected. Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

The apartment was very clean, spacious (for two persons), attractive and charming. Excellent facilities. Lovely views into the beautiful narrow streets. The host was very welcoming and we booked late but were able to check in and out very easily and were allowed to keep our bags there until our evening flight. I would highly reccomend this apartment for a stay in Lisbon.
