Situated in Alfama - the oldest and most typical district of Lisbon - you will find this charming apartment, embedded in a delicious typical street, near Fado Restaurants where the bohemians used to sing improvised Fado, all night long.

Rui and Elsa's apartment is even better than the photos. It's absolutely gorgeous and so central to everything in the wonderful area Alfama. We loved every minute. Highly recommend Rui and Elsa's apartment to other guests. Big thanks to Guilherme for picking us up from the airport and providing us with such great local information - it was very helpful. Our favourite place to eat was just around the corner from the apartment - Beco a Serio - thoroughly recommend! The Saturday market is also fabulous. Love love love Lisbon!

This was a cozy apartment in the historic district of Lisbon. The location is perfect - pretty quiet and at the same time very close to the central streets and to the metro/train station. I didn't have a chance to meet Elsa and Rui personally, but it was always easy to get in touch with them as they answer quickly enough. They always were very communicative and polite in our correspondence. Guys provide meet&greet service as a welcome gift, which really helped me a lot - their friend Carlos met me at the airport and took me to the apartment. He is a cheerful and a very nice person, he gave me lots of local tips, provided me with everything needed and also gave me a complimentary bottle of wine. It was a very warm welcome :) Besides that Elsa and Rui gave me a lot of information about Lisbon, its restaurants, sightseeings and excursions. And their ‘internet in the pocket’ was a real rescue for me :) Guys, thank you for everything, I would be more than happy to come back again and spend time in your nice apartment.

The flat is very well located close to a lot of good and varions restaurants. Pickup at the airport is a must, especially done in a Professional and frendly way. The appartement is nice and confortable. I fully recommend the place.

Can’t say enough great things about this place- great location in the quiet and charming Alfama- our favorite of the three old neighborhoods. Alfama feels more local and low-key than Bairro Alto or Baixa. My daughter and I loved coming back each evening after a busy day exploring the city. There was good communication throughout, and it is a clean and well-stocked apartment (looks just like the pics). Guilherme picked us up and was friendly and helpful- a warm welcome to Lisboa. Our favorite dinners were close by- Bistro Gato Pardo and Beco a Serio. We would definitely stay again. Obrigada Rui and Elsa and Guilherme!

From the very start of planning our trip, Elsa & Rui were always so quick to respond and were super helpful with my questions. Once we arrived in Lisbon, we were picked up from the airport by Carlos who was simply hilarious - we loved his humour and his tips on the city. Even though he was busy, he made sure we had everything we needed and even made a de-tour to one of the best viewing points in Lisbon. The apartment itself was great - it is up three flights of stairs so if you have trouble walking keep this in mind. We found it to be an extra workout to our steps of the day! We found the bed to be comfortable and the living area was our favourite room - it had a lovely view of the street which was always full of locals enjoying a coffee and good food. Perhaps the only thing which could be improved would be the shower/bathroom but given it is in an old apartment we think they did well with the space. In terms of the location, we found it perfect. It was close to the centre of Alfama but yet it felt like a good distance apart and as if we were staying in a local neighbourhood. We felt quite sad to leave but hopefully we will be back soon! This was our first AirBnB experience and we loved it. Thank you Elsa, Rui and Carlos - you guys are awesome!

I really enjoyed staying at Alfama place. Elsa was quick to respond to any question you have, and made sure my stay was memorable by giving through list of things to do, go, and eat from Local point of view. The flat was so charming and loved every single detail they thought of when decorating the place. Location was at the heart of Alfalma and I really enjoyed staying at town with locals. Place is super clean and quaint and charming. I can't wait to come back! Thank you Elsa!

We are Elsa and Rui, computer engineer and birthday parties organizer.

We love to travel but... we love our city very much too and so we would like to share a little of this feeling with you!

Our priority is to make you feel at home during your stay, so we decorated the apartments essentially with love and keeping in mind functionality.

Hope you enjoy Lisbon as much as we do. Have a nice stay in our/your home!
