Beautiful location to explore the historic area. Nice helpful staff. Amazing view and good food. Pool nice as well. We enjoyed breakfast each day. And they even helped with a great place and rate for parking. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Lisbon.

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.

We booked this hotel through Expedia, we paid an additional $30/night in cancelation insurance just in case. I tested positive for COVID the day before our trip, making it impossible for us to go. The confirmation email stated "Free cancelation until September 12 at 9:00PM (GMT Standard Time)" We noted the time difference and canceled first thing in the morning on the 12th. Expedia said it notified the hotel and they would not be fully refunding our reservation. Which is too bad because we intended to rebook this place once I was allowed to travel again. NOT ANYMORE!!

We spent three nights at Memmo Alfama. The service and friendliness of the staff was exceptional. The breakfast on the rooftop was great and included different kinds of fresh fruits. In our view, the rooftop of the hotel has one of the best views in Lisboa.
