Overall nice place to be/stay and the staff are genuinely committed to you enjoying the experience. Nice rooms and lounge areas overlooking the water are wonderful. Few things about details/upkeep that would make them five star: the shower didn’t drain and then smelled, hot water went out and was repaired without them telling us, stain on the bed runner— things that cause them to just fall short of truly outstanding. But can’t say enough about the staff—everyone we encountered was first rate. We’d stay here again in a heartbeat.

This hidden away gem delivers, not with wonderful service but spectacular views from their pool deck. Clean and well appointed, the property offers a serene and relaxing environment from the bustle of the neighborhood. From complimentary breakfast to afternoon drinks, the patio/deck area offers sweeping views of the bay and picturesque hillside neighborhood. Only negative was that it appears that tourist from off the street have found this spot.

The welcome from the staff was excellent. Throughout our stay all staff were extremely helpful and were genuinely determined to help make our stay memorable. The rooftop bar is lovely with fantastic views over the river and surrounding areas. It is a lovely spot for drinks. Breakfast was good and food at the bar was really nice, good variety of tapas. Only minor issue was that the room was quite small. If you are walking from the station the climb up to the hotel is quite steep.

The hotel provided additional travel services from the hotel to tour the surrounding cities. I GO with Pedro M.. was fantastic.. He took us to all the hot spots in Lisbon.. Very safe driver and knowledgeable about the history in Lisbon.. Definitely select his for half day trips around Lisbon or Belem.. Help me find the elusive pressed penny machine in Belem

My husband and I stayed here for 7 days when visiting Lisbon. This place was amazing. It is kind of hidden in the Alfama neighborhood, which is the old city neighborhood. The Memmo Alfama is more than a hotel, It felt that I was home. While our room was "cozy", it had everything we needed. What made this place so special was the staff. These young men (most of the servers were male) were outstanding. I was struggling to stay sober in a place that everyone drinks the fabulous Portugal wine and the servers prepared for me delicious non alcoholic mojitos and Coke Zero with ice and lemon. I need to also mentioned the terrace. I wanted to sleep out there. You had the view of most of the city and the river. We watched the cruise ships going in and out. It has a small pool and plenty of chairs to enjoy the view. They also presented live Fado and a BossaNova singer at no additional cost in their cozy lounge. And most rooms also have a view and almost forgot they served tapas and other small plates that are also great. If you are going to Lisbon you must stay there.

I booked a room just for me after a work trip. My room had stunning views, the hotel is amazingly located in the heart of Alfama, it had a super comfy bed and very friendly and helpful staff. I enjoyed a yummy and healthy breakfast - overlooking the sea. This place is a wonderful find in Alfama. Next time i am coming with my husband. Thank you

Outstanding find in the Alfamma district. Hidden at the end of a well worn cobblestone alley, beautiful boutique hotel with outstanding service experience throughout our stay. Room were clean and spacious. Views from the terrace facing the cruise harbor were spectacular, especially when there were no cruise ship in the harbor. A winner

The stunning hotel is indeed hidden from the hustle and bustle of the city and it feels like an oasis of calm with one of this planet’s most impressive views. This hidden treasure in the heart of one of Lisbon’s most picturesque districts has mastered the art of local integration, offering a truly authentic Lisbon experience, excellent cocktails, perfect service, with unmatched views of Alfama and the Tagus River. Tapas can be served too on request. The interiors of the room are simple yet have all the modern amenities required for an excellent stay: a Marshall amp to connect your phone and listen to music, a large-screen TV, comfortable towels, robes and lovely well-being products for showering. The breakfast menu is simple yet delicious, and pasteis de nata are available ‘a vontade’. The morning and eating area downstairs is a perfect space for meeting new friends and enjoying conversations. Staff are friendly, speak perfect English and other languages and are very helpful. Memmo Alfama has a non-smoking policy and the pool is for guests only. There’s a gym in the lower ground floor of the hotel with all perfect installations. These colours contrast with the beautiful red-tile swimming pool and the heart of the hotel is both the gorgeous outside terrace and the cave-like dining room and breakfast / lounging interior area. So highly recommended! Book it now!
