Welcome to the genuine heart of Lisbon

The Pousada Alfama came about from the restoration of a historic building that exudes authenticity while combining the traditional with the contemporary. Right at the entrance you are welcomed by a work of urban art by the artist Bordallo II, ushering you into what will be a unique and innovative experience right in the heart of the Portuguese capital.

This hotel in Alfama is spread over 4 floors and has 43 rooms of different types, all of which offer you the comfort needed for spending unforgettable days in Lisbon. The hotel is located in a pedestrianised area dominated by Lisbon’s most typical and original delights, and from here, you can experience the city’s most breathtaking sunset.

The prominent location of this hotel in the historic centre of Lisbon puts it right opposite the viewing point of the Portas do Sol. This name comes from the old Porta do Sol, one of Lisbon’s medieval gates, which was part of the city’s Cerca Moura, destroyed in the 1755 earthquake.

The essence of Alfama is fado, popular saints and tradition and it’s also an excellent starting point for getting to know the authentic heart of Lisbon, its charming streets with distinctive Portuguese paving, the traditional courtyards and the famous number 28 tram. From the Pousada Alfama, you can easily reach, on foot, Lisbon’s Cathedral, St. George’s Castle, the Santa Justa lift and other famous Lisbon landmarks, such as the Praça do Comércio or the Baixa Pombalina.
