Second time we’ve stayed here (3 nights). The staff were very helpful in arranging pre-cruise covid tests for us, and were always charming and professional. Our bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was well appointed. There’s a limited breakfast buffet, but they also included eggs to order and other items on their breakfast menu, for no extra cost. I really enjoyed my omelettes. Carafes of coffee and hot milk were available, as were juices, water, etc. We really enjoyed relaxing on the back terrace, overlooking the river and the new cruise terminal — drink prices are reasonable, and they offer tapas and plates from their kitchen. We highly recommend.

This lovely hotel is situated in the heart of the historic neighborhood of Alfama. From the moment the attentive staff welcomed us at check-in, we enjoyed everything about our stay. Our room was comfortable, the breakfast buffet was excellent (particularly the local pasteis de nata), and the views from the hotel Terrace were astonishing. When we return to Lisbon someday, we will definitely look forward to visiting Memmo Alfama again.

Staying in Memmo Alfama was a great experience. From the moment we entered the staff made us feel welcome. The room was very comfortable with a great view. Mostly we enjoyed the terrace with a beautiful view over the river and old city. With a beautiful hotel like this you almost don't feel like going out!

This was my first time in Lisbon and I wanted an authentic but central experience. the hotel met my expectations on all counts. The staff is extremely forthcoming, helpful, friendly and efficient. They helped us with restaurant reservations and taxis seamlessly. Our room, though small, afforded a view of the river and the terrace with its sweeping panoramic view over the Tejo. This terrace, with its trendy yet cozy bar is really spectacular even on a windy day where it it would normally be too cold to stay outside. Breakfast was abundant and very good. The selection of fresh fruit was copious and delicious. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

We were there for a couple of nights. The hotel is great for a city trip and we enjoyed the atmosphere. The guided tour through Alfama was ver good and the Fado events in the evening very relaxed. The breakfast is very good, the bar food also. A clear recommendation!

We really enjoyed our stay at Memmo Alfama, which is quietly tucked away off a busy street in Lisbon. We had a lovely view over the Tagus River & beyond which we enjoyed from our own terrace. The best part about this place is the staff - every staff member was exceptional. They are helpful, friendly & do everything they can to make everyone's stay special. The breakfast was very good & there was plenty to choose from including breads, meats & cheeses, cereals, cooked options and of course Pastel de Nata! The small tables in the breakfast room are very uncomfortable for eating, but there is a long traditional dining table & other tables upstairs in the bar area for eating. Our room had a super comfy bed, outside seating and a decent shower. A few areas in the room looked a little 'tired', but we have just come out of a 2 year pandemic/lockdown, so its to be expected. Pretty much everything in Lisbon is within walking distance of the hotel and on this, our 3rd trip to Lisbon, we took a train across to the pretty seaside town of Cascais, which cost around 11 euro return per person, its a lovely day out if you fancy venturing out of Lisbon (although there's plenty to do in Lisbon itself).

Probably the best in Lisbon. Located in the old Alfama district. Very quiet as in a cul de sac. Excellent position to explore the city, also close to the cathedral where you can get picked up for booked tours. Only 42 rooms, very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is excellent and can be taken outside. Rooms are beautiful, well equipped with large showers. Icing on the cake are the large outside areas, great views over Lisbon whilst having breakfast or tapas with a drink.

Okay, so I booked this hotel because it was well reviewed in a couple of cool mags. And I booked it for the view of the Alfama. When we got there, we headed to the terrace immediately. And what did we see: two huge cruise ships right in front of us. Yes, the terrace is facing the Alfama AND the cruise ship terminal. When we got to our room (stupid me, just booked a standard room...but I thought for almost 300 Euros a night I would get something fairly decent): NO WINDOWS. Seriously, they have walls built in front of the windows (apparently its part of the architectural concept). Also, the rooms are so small you could hardly move...any budget chain hotel offers more space. And what's more: the room reeked of fried fish because the kitchen odors found our way there. Reception staff was friendly. Bar staff tried their best but managed not to serve us twice. Overall, a never-come-back experience.

This is a great hotel in a great location for exploring Alfalma! The facility and its staff are first class; easy access to the historic #28 tram. The free walking tour was also great. Overall, a very charming and professional operation. The breakfast was top notch. Don’t hesitate to ask for what you want. If it’s not on the buffet, they will likely make it for you!

We had an incredible stay at Memmo Alfama. The location is just perfect for visiting Lisbon. Situated in the gorgeous old town and a stones throw away from tourist locations, transport links and a myriad of restaurants. We had breakfast included in our stay, and in addition to a superb continental breakfast buffet there was a very decent selection of hot food on the menu too. The terrace was chilled. And had it been warmer, would definitely have made the most of that gorgeous infinity pool. Staff couldnt do enough. The view over the river and old town was incredible. Great for sunrises. We often think of our holidays as one and done. Wouldn’t ordinarily consider going back to the same country or location. But honestly, Memmo Alfama is the only place we have said we would return to should we need to come back to Lisbon. Thanks for an incredible time, guys.
