What a great hotel! From the moment we arrived to the day we left the staff couldn't be more welcoming, friendly and helpful and this initial level of service makes this an ideal hotel before you even get to your room. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived (we arrived early) however they still took all our details, kept our suitcases safe, gave us a tour of the hotel, informed us of their free tour guide (worth doing by the way!) and recommended restaurants. The location of the hotel is perfect, its only 30 mins max from the airport (dependent on traffic) and walking distance (both up and down hill) to any of the visitor attractions and an array of restaurants. The hotel in itself is very clean as are the rooms. We had the Mansard Room (up in the rooftop), great room, very clean, everything you need (towels, face cloths, toiletries, hairdryer, 3 pillows each, complimentary water, minibar, kettle, safe) and the room was freshened up frequently. For the view, you just need to take one step out of the doors and you won't be disappointed. The breakfast is fabulous, plenty of choice and you can order hot food (scrambled eggs, poached eggs etc). We only had lunch once at the hotel and it was delicious (burger) and pretty sure anything else on the menu would be great too. The top roof terrace area is a must, you catch the sun all day and you can order your drinks / food and the great staff will bring it to you (you have the option to pay there and then or you can add to your bill and pay on departure). There is a mid terrace where the pool is (its a small pool however adequate enough to cool down in) and plenty of seating areas. As we were leaving very early in the morning, they kindly organised transport to pick us up to take us to the airport and they also supplied us both with a breakfast box (water, fruit juice and roll with cheese & ham) - this was perfect to eat at the airport before we went through security.

By far the best hotel in Lisbon. You’ll come for the views and stay for the excellent service, beautiful rooms and superb food and drinks. Nuno at the rooftop bar will make you the best sangria of your life. Trust me. The beds are so comfortable and the bathrooms are inspiration for my next home.

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful hotel during a recent road trip around Portugal. The hotel provides valet parking which is very useful in the Alfama district. The hotel is very modern and immaculately clean. It has great views of the Alfama district and river. Great breakfast included. But best of all were the staff, who were brilliant. Upon learning it was our wedding anniversary they provided us with a little gift which helped to make our day extra special.

The Memmo Alfama is a lovely hotel. As you walk into reception a feeling of calm surrounds you and you are always greeted with a smile. There is an amazing rooftop bar area with views over the old city and the river, you can take your breakfast up there. There’s a very small pool too. The breakfast is very good and the rooms very comfortable, the location is excellent. Above all, the staff couldn’t be more helpful and friendly - we loved it.

A really warm and friendly staff in a beautiful boutique hotel. Peaceful room with a cozy design and a wonderful breakfast on the roof . Take a cocktail with a view at the sunshine, side by side to the roof pool, just before a gourmet dinner and enjoy the best secret panorma over the city. Unforgettable

We spent 4 nights at the Memmo Alfama and they were absolutely lovely. The staff was friendly and helpful both at the front desk and the pool. The room was immaculately clean. The common areas stylish and comfortable. Breathtaking views of the Tagus and Alfama from both our room and the pool area, which is truly special. We loved everything about this hotel and absolutely would love to return. Obrigado!!!
