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.

This is a very basic hotel. It is very clean and the rooms are quite nice. The shared areas are quite good. Very centrally located and it was good to be able to be able to find restaurants and cafes all around it.

This very basic pension is a good place to stay to start the Camino. It’s located by the Cathedral, and the Camino passes right by the front door. However it’s a bit worn out, and the room was not entirely comfortable. While the room had a tiny shower and sink, the toilet was

The rooms are very simple and comfortable, and the location is excellent with the waterfront very close, and a number of great and affordable restaurants around. Could do with an extra pillow, perhaps slightly noisy at night, but very little to fault the establishment on!

"Some rooms are very high up so do not be afraid to ask for a lower floor if you are not great with steep stairs"
"Avoid room 207 by reception. The receptionist talks incessantly and her voice goes right through you"
"Even if it says double bed, you will probably be given two single beds"
"Room 201 may be quieter, though less of a view. To avoid stairs, you'll want to be on the second floor, not the third."
"Ask about the room before travelling as there are a couple of negatives here, I found the staff more than happy to help with a problem."
