We loved Lisbon and especially the Alfama area. This hotel had spectacular views of the city and it was definitely worth paying more for the patio. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff were very helpful.

We booked this hotel for our city break mainly because it had a nice private terrace. We arrived early and our room was ready so we were able to go straight up. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and Inish provided us with a map and some tips about how to get about (she was spot on). The...

The room was spacious, with an amazing view overlooking the city. Each day staff were polite, ready to...

This is a small boutique hotel that made us feel welcome in every way. WiFi worked great and we liked the buffet breakfast. If you like big lobbies, gyms and pools, this...

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.
