Sweet place that lives up to its name

Sweet sweet place that lives up to its name. we had a gorgeous view of the river Tagus from our window, wonderful breakfasts, and interesting other guests. Hosts Anna and Helena were really welcoming. The location at the bottom of the Alfama 5 minutes up the hill from the Santa Appalonia train station can't be beat--we walked almost everywhere including the lovely Fado places Fado Morganha and Senior Fado and when we didn't it was a great place for transit.. Can't imagine a better place to stay. Also near the Fado Museum, the Cathedral and the amazing new museum, the Aljube, about the history of the dictatorship and the resistance, which is not to be missed. Only one minor quibble, When we went to Sintra, which Helena lives near, she could have helped us better navigate all the people trying to sell us transport. But overall a great place and we'll stay there or recommend to friends any future time. But otherwise

Home away from home

I felt like I was back at home and I am glad I felt that way. Lisbon was our final destination but once I got there even though I was excited to be there I was getting to that feeling where I would be happy to go back home. However coming to stay at this nice place helped me to just continue to enjoy and feel relaxed while in Lisbon

Wonderfully hospitable!

The hostess, Anna, is lovely. She was wonderfully accommodating and helpful, and we enjoyed our stay because of her hospitality. The location is excellent, easy walking to sights and just around the corner from the train station. The room was adequate, although the construction next door was a distraction from the river view. (Noise was not an issue, but it was also cool so windows were not open. Might be different in summer.). Although the rooms are older and very basic, the bed was comfortable. For us it was a pleasant stay and good value. We found Alfama interesting, and we were glad we stayed there. Be aware that you need a code to enter the building. Contact them before arrival!

Stayed 2 nights in Nov 2019


    The property was uniquely unwelcoming upon arrival but that paled into insignificance in comparison with the extensive and noisy building site which is going on outside. In this instance, directly outside our room. The noise was horrendous and upon pointing this out we were told that other guests ‘stay out all day’. When I pointed out my health problems meaning I need to rest during the day I was told that I should have informed them of my needs beforehand! We were not warned about the noise, dust and view beforehand and the guest house was full so they were unable to move us. We were offered a 10% refund which we have not received and had to find alternative accommodation on the 2nd night. Very unhappy.
