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.

No!! Drink lots at breakfast!! Ridiculous really considering prices but rooms are maybe too small to accommodate a Nespresso machine.

The rooms we had were for two and wouldn’t be big enough to have space for an extra bed.

Car hire near hotel ?
Hi, We are happy to help you hire a car, where the rent-a-car company will drop off and pick up the car in the hotel. Should you prefer to rent the car directly in a shop, you can go to the station near by as mentioned above. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need anything further. Thank you, Eduardo Pedroso
