"Great Hotel, Great Location"
After some tribulations finding the Memmo Alfama, everything was wonderful. We were welcomed with a tour of the hotel and escorted to our room. The room was very nice - clean and comfortable. There is a beautiful roof top terrrace where afternoon tappas and cocktails are available and where breakfast is served in the morning. The hotel does lean more […] toward adults - not necessarily the best place for families with small children. Location was perfect for people who like history and walking, but a bit off the beaten path if you want to be in the middle of everything. Only problem for our entire stay was that it was only two nights - wish we had been able to stay longer! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel. Not ideal for business travel"
The hotel is nice. It has an amazing terrace with a nice view. Rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. The hotel is located in the old city which is the touristic area. Not ideal for business travel since most business districts are 20 to 30 minutes by taxi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Very beautiful, stylish hotel but the rooms are VERY small, prepare yourself for not much space to move around. The small rooms are made up for with the gorgeous view and great location though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"We loved this Hotel"
The Hotel was one of the best we have ever stayed in - great location,amazing views and most of all top quality service and very friendly and helpful staff. Can't think of any negatives. I wish we were still there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for exploring Historical Centre"
Above expectations! Wishing I spent more than one night here. The hotel is intimate yet comfortable and the location is perfect for exploring the historical monuments of Lisbon by foot. A free walking tour is also offered daily so don't plan anything for 10am.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A quiet gem in a beautiful neighborhood"
This was one of the best hotel experiences I have EVER had. I travel a lot for work in search of the perfect boutique hotel. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make my stay perfect and easy. The hotel is simple and modern - very clean and the view of the river and Alfama is unbelievable. Alfama is the perfect […] neighborhood if you want old European beauty and quiet, but it is a short walk to the more bustling hip neighborhoods of Lisbon. One last thing...the breakfast every morning is delicious and you can eat it on the terrace. I would go back in a minute and secretly hope it doesn't get too popular or expensive.

"Über den Dächern der Altstadt..."
... haben wir zwei schöne Nächte im äußerst geschmackvoll hergerichteten Hotel verbracht. Herrlicher lässt es sich nicht auf die Alfama und den Tejo hinunterblicken.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great stay in the Memmo Alfama. The hotel is quite new, only 10 months since the opening - but placed in the building of an old shoe factory and a bakery. The owners have been clever in taking care of historical details, and combined them with wonderful design objects. The all over impression is fancy and comfortable! The rooms are light, simple […] and stylish with comfortable beds and spacious and nice bathrooms. Wonderful rain showers and big towels. The bar is located on a roof terrace that make you speechless - with a view over both Alfama and the river Tejo. Really tasteful design, beautiful in all ways. You can also enjoy your breakfast here. The hotel is a short walk away from both the castle and the old city Alfama. Recommended! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Ein wahres Juwel. Das Hotel liegt im Herzen von Alfama. Der Service ist ausgezeichnet, noch ganz selten habe ich so freundliche und hilfsbereite Hotelangestellte angetroffen.

"Petits détails à améliorer mais personnel charmant"
Le wi-fi n'arrivait pas jusqu'à notre chambre, et sa situation par rapport au bar faisait qu'elle était plutôt bruyante. Ces petits détails sont à améliorer. On leur pardonne car cet établissement vient juste d'ouvrir. En dehors de ça: Hôtel design et très confortable, personnel charmant et à l'écoute, petits déjeuners délicieux sur une terrasse qui […] domine le Tage et offre une vue sublime sur le quartier de l'Alfama. Et juste en face de la ruelle qui mène à l'hôtel, un petit resto populaire comme Lisbonne en a le secret qui sert des plats copieux et délicieux pour des prix incroyablement bas !

Vi är mycket nöjda med allt på detta mindre nyöppnade hotell som ligger i det mysiga stadsdelen Alfama. Var lite oroliga innan vi åkte. Hade inga recensioner att gå efter. Men vi blev inte besvikna.

"lovely location, great staff, but...."
07/29/14 CavKA Galway, Ireland
I am giving this hotel 5 stars because I think it merits it. However, when reading the reviews, you will find a bit of a mix between those, like me who love it, and a few (not many) of those who gave it a bad review, and some which liked but did not love it. There is one reason for the disparity, in my view, and that is the size of the rooms. So if room size matters to you above and beyond all else, then this is NOT your hotel. I stayed with a friend, not a partner, and we had an Alfama Superior room which was fine. But, having said that, if ours was the size of a Superior, I cannot imagine what the standard room would be. In the Superior room, there was enough room for the two beds and for one person to have their suitcase out, but not much more. The hotel is upfront about the room sizes but I think folks don't focus on what the square footage actually translates in to in terms of size. Be prepared. We were in room 6. The room itself was small, but adequate. There was a small safe (not big enough for a laptop), a fridge, a small desk (ish). We did, however, have a fabulous bathroom. A very large stone bath and a rain shower. The wi fi worked perfectly throughout the hotel. Okay, leaving aside the room--here is where there will be consensus, the location is fantastic. Alfama is by far, in my view, the best place to stay in Lisbon, but this is one of the only hotels here. There is another hotel-type (with 6 or so rooms) but is not a hotel. The interior of the hotel is modern with older touches inside (stone, etc). The roof terrace, however, is the winner. There is a small infinity pool for cooling down, not swimming and a sunken area with coaches and a fire. It is just lovely and the views are outstanding. Breakfast is both hot and cold, and adequate. You can have a meal at the hotel, it is more tapas but substantial enough and there is bar service until midnight or later if there are enough people. The staff is wonderful. It is on the right side of town to the airport and a taxi from the hotel to the airport was only about 12 Euro. We took the hotel arranged service because of all the folks who mentioned how hard it was to find. It really is not that hard. Tell the taxi driver to go to Se (which is a famous church) and from there, follow the tram line (28) toward the castle. It is the second right hand turn after you leave the front of Se. Not the first right hand turn is actually where the road splits (you stay to the left following the tram line). The road right after that on the right is the turn down for the hotel. You will know you are on the right road as when you look down, Memmo Alfama is sign posted at the end of that first turn, and then you a sharp left and at the end of that road is the hotel (it is one road, it just turns sharply to the left). Last but not least, the hotel offers a free walking tour of Alfama each morning at 10 a.m. Be sure to book in for your tour when you arrive and my strong suggestion is to do this at the beginning of the trip. The person who does this tour is Ines and she runs a small touring firm. The walking tour is free, but in mentioning that we might go to Sintra, she told me that she also has a company that could provide a 1/2 or full day tour. We went with her on this (we organized directly with her) and it was fab. She has such a great spirit and loves the country. So if you do the walking tour and want to go on a day trip outside of Lisbon, my very strong suggestion is to ask Ines for her card or arrange it there and then with her. She does not have a trip advisor site up and running yet so posting here in the interim. So back to the hotel--Enjoy and yes, do go!

We stayed four nights in this lovely hotel. The terrace with the view over the old town and the bay was just amazing. The staff were very friendly, and the breakfast was great. Definitely recommended.
"So glad I chose Memmo Alfama!"
07/18/14 arleneb73 Indianapolis, Indiana
After looking at many hotel choices, I finally settled on Memmo Alfama and was so happy with the choice! We stayed in an Alfama room with a beautiful view. The rooms are small, but well-designed and comfortable. It is all the extra touches that make this hotel special: the walking tour of the Alfama neighborhood (which we did immediately upon arriving and it was a great orientation to the neighborhood), the terrace and pool (great view and wonderful place to unwind), and the attentive staff. Even though we hadn't originally planned on it, we chose to go back to Memmo Alfama for an extra night at the end of our trip because we loved it so much.
07/15/14 Laura N
It's a very very beautiful hotel. We justed stayed one night, but we really wished we could stay longer. The outdoor sites have amazing views and the pool is amazing to relax in. The staff is very friendly and professional. The rooms are suprisingly big. The overall atmosfere is chill and cool! We'll definitly go back!!
"Great boutique hotel in Lisbon"
07/08/14 vatc5637 Virginia, USA
We stayed one night before embarking on our cruise. In hindsight, wish we had stayed in Lisbon a day or two longer. Although a bit challenging to find (we took public transportation, when you get off at Limiero on Tram 12, walk back up the hill, not down) the hotel itself was wonderful. The staff was very welcoming, the hotel charming and the neighborhood very interesting. The rooms was surprisingly large and the bed very comfortable, especially after a long flight in. Breakfast the following morning was very good. Will stay there again next time we visit Lisbon.
"Perfect hotel in a beautiful city"
07/07/14 Paul C
My wife and I stayed here for three nights in early July 2014. From the moment we arrived the hotel lived up to all our expectations. A lovely warm welcome, stunning room (number 22 - highly recommended), delicious cocktails & surely one of the best roof top terraces (and pools) in any European city. Without fail, every member of staff was helpful, friendly & courteous & we highly recommend joining the free 60 minute walking tour of fascinating Alfama, which the hotel offers each day at 10am (after a delicious breakfast). If you want beautiful views, luxury & tip-top service in wonderful Lisbon, Memmo Alfama is ideal.
"A Luxe Boutique Hotel in the Old City"
07/02/14 MarcDavid Brooklyn, New York
This new(ish) boutique property is tucked away in an historic building on an initially hard-to-find side street in the old-city Alfama neighborhood of Lisbon (the first hotel to open in this historic neighborhood - with more to follow, no doubt). Once you find it, though, you will find that it's actually a great, convenient location for exploring the city and you will be very well taken care of by a helpful, knowledgeable front desk staff. We loved the combination of old (the building itself, the neighborhood) and new (the hushed, modern decor, the simple but elegant minimalist rooms, the indoor/outdoor wine bar terrace, the small dipping pool). Do check if your room has a view, as its worth waking up to a view over the old city and the river (we had an Alfama Superior room which did have these views). We didn't use the small pool, but we did spend time almost every evening having a cocktail or a glass of wine and some snacks on the outdoor terrace before heading out for dinner. And the breakfast - a self-serve buffet aside from eggs/omelettes which they will make to order - is lovely and fresh. If you're looking for a cool, luxe, modern, full-service boutique hotel, we highly recommend the Memmo Alfama.
07/01/14 Tripandvisor Sydney, Australia
I stayed at Memmo Alfama for 4 nights in June. I really can't fault this great boutique hotel. - Location Alfama is a great neighbourhood and a 5 to 10 minute walk to central Lisbon. It's quaint, quiet and away from the tourist traps. - Staff Extremely helpful, they were able to recommend great local restaurants and gave us a walking tour of the neighbourhood. - Accommodation Extremely stylish, quiet, and very clean. - Facilities There's a number of decks with sun-beds and lounges offering amazing views of Alfama and the river. The restaurant offers delicious local food. The menu is diverse and reasonably priced. Breakfast buffet (inclusive) offers a wide range of tasty options. - Good value We stayed in a Patio room which is the standard rate and didn't feel the need to upgrade at all. Would 100% book again.
"Stylish, homely gem"
06/29/14 Marcus P
My wife took me here for my 40th and it lived up to every expectation. It was boutique without being pretentious, relaxed without sparing the frills, as charming as any hotel I have stayed in and there are lots to compare with. The receptionists were wonderful, surprised me with champagne and cake, the terrace an oasis of calm and style, the living room like home from home. The room was small but perfectly formed with a beautiful free standing shower. The neighbourhood will capture your hearts forever, with a free walking tour a nice touch courtesy of the hotel. I would recommend this to anybody who needs a few days to unwind in understated luxury...just leave the kids at home. Thanks for a wonderful stay, Memmo Alfama. We will miss you.
06/22/14 Dorothy47187048 Derby, United Kingdom
My husband booked this hotel as a surprise. We turned up before check in time, but were offered a tour of the hotel and drink followed by somewhere to freshen up before we had a walk around the city. We were welcomed by a lovely man called Pedro who was so friendly and helpful. The roof top terrace was gorgeous, furnished with leather sofas, sun loungers and chairs. You can sit and eat breakfast on the terrace over looking the river and rooftops below. It was a fantastic location, quiet but only a 5 minute walk to the main square and 10 minutes to the castle...you can get the team from right outside though too if you don't fancy the walk. We had a terrace room which was lovely, the only slight issue was that the room itself was abit small and the walls quite thin. But modern decor and the big barroom and terrace over compensated. We thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Lisbon. They offer a FREE walking tour too which is well worth it to get your bearings and learn about the traditions area of alfama. Oh and it was the best continental breakfast I have had, cheeses, cereals, breads, ham, fruit, salmon, pastries, as well as being able to order hot food such as eggs, bacon, beans and pancakes.
