  • Pousada Alfama

    Charming Hotel located in the authentic heart of historic Lisbon


    The Pousada in Alfama is the result of a superb conversion of an historic  building combining both classical and contemporary elements.

    Representing a collaboration of traditional and modern, the entrance of the Pousada is adorned with an urban piece of art by the Portuguese artist Bordalo II.

    The Pousada is located in Alfama one of the oldest districts in Lisbon, Portugal’s historic and fascinating capital city. The hotel is situated on one of the highest viewpoints of the city in front of the Portas do Sol. The name is derived from one of Lisbon’s ancient medieval gates.

    From the Pousada you can view one of Lisbon’s most stunning sunsets.

    The hotel has 43 rooms over 4 floors.  The bedrooms are beautifully furnished and decorated with the emphasis on comfort. The rooms offer a wide range of facilities.

    The Pousada’s ‘Manifesto Bar Lounge’ is a cosy and casual area where guests can enjoy breakfast whilst watching this fascinating city wake up. On the terrace, adjacent to the bar, guests can sample Portuguese wines, tapas and cocktails.

    Alfama is one of Lisbon’s oldest and most colourful neighbourhoods with its cobbled streets running from the Tagus River and St. George’s Castle. The best way to get to know this beautiful neighbourhood is by getting lost in its labyrinth of streets and alleys. From Pousada de Alfama you can easily visit some of Lisbon’s main monuments such as Sé Cathedral, St. George’s Castle, National Pantheon, St. Antonio’s Church or Praca do Comercio.

    One of Alfama’s highlights is Fado, a unique style of music and song characteristic of Portugal and particularly Lisbon.  In this area you can enjoy great food and wine and experience this cultural gem in one of the many restaurants or Fado clubs.
