Sure, the entrance is hard to find the first time, so I recommend you ask the hotel to arrange a private transfer. We did, it was 25 euros and worth every penny to be driven straight there and have our bags taken straight to our room. The hotel is just gorgeous. Its location is perfect - you can literally walk...

The entrance to this lovely hotel dating back to 1909 is slightly tucked away from the main street and not easy vehicle access, but be assured that the effort to find it is worth while.It is in the Alfama district (Old Town) nearly opposite the cruise ship terminal. As you step through the front door you see ornate floorings, stained...

This hotel was the gem of a long trip filled with great hotels. The property is beautiful with a convenient location within the old part of the city. The staff was friendly, knowledgable and welcoming, making it feel like staying with friends in a gorgeous home. I cannot recommend this hotel enough.

We loved this gorgeous old palace, located in the Alfama district with a view of the water, and a garden balcony. The service was warm and welcoming, our room a fantastic mix of old and modern, and the breakfast was the best we had in Portugal. We wish we could have stayed for a month.

This hotel was like a fairytale-the building, the decor, the unique rooms, the location.Not to mention the decadent daily breakfast! But the service is really next level.

We loved our stay- everything was great but the best part was Magda and crew- wish we could have taken the staff out with us at night. Such nice and friendly people and treated us like friends. We got the penthouse suite which was bigger than my entire NYC apartment and really funky/cool decorations. Also came with our own private...

We lived a few blocks from this charming boutique hotel. On certain evenings they allow outside guests to eat or drink. We took them up on it. It's a former home of a Portuguese merchant that was turned into a hotel. The staff are hospitable and helpful. The wine and small dishes we ordered in the lounge area was just...

This is small boutique hotel in the Alfama district. The interior is decorated in late 19th century style and feels comfortably luxurious. The staff are extremely attentive and helpful. The breakfast was lovely, full of fresh local produce. Our suite included 2 balconies with sweeping views over the Alfama, with space to lounge and dine. The hotel is centrally located...

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
