The moment I walked into this hotel I knew it was going to be great. The hotel is very new and located in the Alfama area, which is lovely to walk around. To help you with this the hotel offers free walking tours, which are really worth it. Also, there's a tuktuk station - we had so much fun!

The rooms may be a bit small but super clean, tasteful and have a great view over the river. Also the terrace and the pool look very nice and you can have breakfast or a drink on the terrace.

The personnel is very nice, we especially liked the waiter who works during breakfast.
Highly recommended, I'd go there again definitely!

Breathtaking views and a charismatic building do make a match made in heaven. Impeccable staff, although relatively unexperienced. I have the best to say about the manager (Rita Peixoto) who was very kind to accommodate our last minute changes. Extremely comfortable bed and bedding blended with a gorgeous room decoration that make you not wanting to leave.... ever. The breakfast was equally rich in color, variety and taste. Strongly recommended.

I think it is fair to say that all of the reviews so far sum up this beautiful little hotel perfectly - it really is a hidden gem in the Alfama area of Lisbon.

Our taxi driver did struggle to find the hotel initially so do make sure you have all of the address details to hand. That said, the location is absolutely perfect as a base to explore this lovely city.

The hotel is comprised of several old buildings that have been restored and converted in to a fantastic little hotel. The views from the terrace area are truly breathtaking and I would like to return in the summer as I imagine the place will fast become one of Lisbons hot spots!

The staff at Memmo Alfama are probably the nicest, friendliest & most helpful I have ever encountered at a hotel. They really went above and beyond with their levels of customer service and the whole team excelled at their jobs. They all seemed like genuinely lovely people who enjoyed what what they were doing.

Rooms were well decorated and really comfortable. Not the largest rooms but perfect for a short break and pretty faultless. Some great views overlooking Alfama and the river too.

Breakfast was very nice and we enjoyed the whole setup in the living room. Only downside was that I could quite easily eat far too many of the mini Pastel de Nata!

Despite what other reviewers have said, there are some lovely little restaurants close to the hotel so you really don't have venture over to Chiado if you don't fancy it.

Overall, I loved Memmo Alfama & loved the location as it was an escape from the hustle & bustle of the other areas of Lisbon. Will definitely return.

Hotel is still relatively new so all furnishings are new and in good condition. Love the deco (it's a boutique hotel after all) and the al fresco dining area. Fantastic view of the coastline. Thoughtful gesture of complimentary champagne and 1 hr walking tour made our stay even more enjoyable. Staff were helpful in attending to our queries. Will definitely recommend to friends visiting Lisboa!

On Valentines Day my fiancé and I stayed in this hotel, and the experience was nothing short of spectacular! The views of Lisbon and the water are amazing, the wine bar and breakfast were fantastic, but the best part was the staff (especially Rita the manager). I proposed to my fiancé here, and the help and knowledge that was given to me made it perfect. Rita helped me pick out a fantastic restaurant and help me with my plan to surprise her with roses set up at the wine bar. Best of all she booked me in a beautiful room with a view (which she let me check into early) and surprised even me with candles and complimentary champagne, pastries, and strawberries when we arrived back to our room. Recommend staying here 100 times over! Rita and her staff made this special day even better than I thought it could be!

The design of the hotel is very special, with a great mix of modern and old Portuguese architecture. The location has some negative aspects (difficult to find) but overall is great, particularly for those visiting for tourism. There is a public area/restaurant/bar with a swimming pool and nice terrace with a great sea-view. The service has been consistently excellent during my stay. Abundant and sophisticated breakfast.

My only remarks are the room rates (not cheap) and the size of my room (very small, particularly for two people).

Overall, though, a great experience and I have already recommended it to my friends planning to visit Lisbon.
