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

Our rom, 303, was perfect. Besides being comfortable, it has a beautiful view that can be enjoyed from the room or terrace. The attentive staff enhanced our visit. 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...

This was our last stop in Europe, touring mostly Spain.

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.
