Alfama River Apartments, Lisbon
Tiny apartment
The unit did not even come close to the photos posted online. It was located on the fourth floor with stairs that were dangerously steep! The toaster did not work and the bathroom door knob was broken as the one bedroom. The positive side is that it has a great view and is very close to everything!

Poor Management & Backed Up Sewer Gasses in Apt.
The drain to the shower wasn't draining when we arrived, they took care of that, but then sewer gasses were backing up through the now open drain. We asked several times for them to handle it. They were very dismissive, saying it is normal in Lisbon.... Sewer gasses are dangerous and are not "normal" in residences. We had to have all the windows in the apartment open to vent the gasses the entire time we were there. They sent someone out once and they said they didn't smell the gas, so there must not be a problem. Well we had all the windows open, so you wouldn't smell it! The renting company was very dismissive and NEVER corrected the problem. I would not stay there, and would warn anyone else considering it to reflect upon whether you want to be breathing in sewer gasses from everyone else's apartment through your bathroom! Also, you should take note of how poorly we were treated when you make your decision.

Very Good8.0
A steep climb but worth the effort
Very traditional building very well located for transport and walking into the city centre. We were on 4th floor and there are no lifts and the stairs are very steep, however, the apartment was worth the climb. It has a small kitchen with everything you need (washing machine, oven, microwave, fridge etc) and great views. The windows all opened allowing a through breeze to keep the place cool in 30+ degrees. Will definitely go back if the opportunity arises.

We enjoyed our stay however, we initially had difficulty getting access to the room which was very frustrating. When you arrive to the address, there is no main office or any information about how to contact the host. The host did not answer the telephone number that was provided by, which required us to call several times to figure out how to contact the host. The location is good for the Alfama area.

Excellent location
The location was perfect, a short distance from the metro, in a lively neigbourhood, yet quiet at night. The apartment is beautiful and very well appointed. I would have given a five star rating if I had not had some difficulty contacting the owner when I needed to on a Saturday.
