This review is so long overdue! Myself and my husband stayed at the Memmo Alfama for 3 nights at the end of February. From the minute we arrived we were so impressed. We received such a warm welcome from the front desk staff. The hotel itself is beautiful. It is really modern but also cosy and welcoming. They have really thought of everything to make your stay a memorable one. As many have mentioned, the views from the fabulous outside terrace are amazing. In one direction you can see the old town of Alfama and in the other you have the Tagus River. The location is perfect. Alfama itself is charming with many bars and restaurants and just lovely to stroll around. It's also really close - very short walk - to Commerce Square and many other tourist sites. The hotel breakfast is so delicious! I would say the best I've had in a long time! What makes the Memmo Alfama extra special is it's fantastic staff! They really are so helpful and always smiling. I have to give a special mention to front desk staff Antonio and Nuno (hope I've spelled names correctly). They gave so many good recommendations for excellent places to eat, and places to visit, along with the best way to get there etc. All in all, I cannot wait to get the opportunity to return to this wonderful hotel!

Hotel's Favorite
This hotel is a true gem and we were SO happy we stayed here. It's a beautiful boutique hotel tucked down a cobblestone street in the stunning Alfama district. The location is ideal, we walked everywhere from here! Our room was comfortable, spacious, and full of light, and we could step outside and take in the glorious views. Speaking of views, the rooftop terrace was one of our favorite places to hang out! After a long day of exploring Lisbon, we loved having a glass of wine and some olives on the terrace. Daily breakfast was full of options and can also be enjoyed from the terrace. The staff was wonderful and very helpful whenever we had a question - excellent customer service. I would highly recommend this hotel and can't imagine staying anywhere else on our next visit.

The service was excellent. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly.everything was very familar. The room was small, nicely decorated and very cozy. The view from the roof terrace is unique and the location is very central in the old town of Lisbon. I liked the good treatment and the dream look the most.

This was a wonderful, soft landing spot for our first visit to Lisboa and Portugal. After a long flight from the US, it's nice to have an easy, friendly and comfortable welcome. Would highly recommend this hotel and location for folks interested in seeing an older part of the city that's within a close walk of other trendy neighborhoods. We chose to have the Memmo Alfama arrange pick-up at the airport and are glad we did. Our driver was friendly and informative and our ride was safe and clean. After that we walked everywhere, and the staff was helpful in providing information and recommendations. We participated in the free tour guide walk around Alfama the next morning and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our guide, "Fred," was funny and entertaining... we gave him a big tip! The Alfama neighborhood is hilly (even compared to the rest of Lisboa which is hilly in general), so this hotel would not be a great choice for someone who is unsteady on their feet. With so many places to choose from, hunting for hotels in Lisboa is a pain. Save yourself the trouble and stay at Memmo Alfama. It's even more adorable than shown in the photographs. Breakfast is casual and fresh. Simple, clean, quiet and comfortable with a terrace view that other tourists and locals come to take advantage of!
