Located in the Alfama neighbourhood, right in the heart of historical Lisbon, ‘Stairway to Heaven’, is a safe haven for those who want to know hold Lisbon in the comfort of a modern apartment. With three balconies, you can enjoy either the view to Tagus River or to the roofs of Lisbon. 10 minutes’ walk to St Apolonia subway and train station.
Down town Lisbon is only a 20 minutes’ walk away. With a tram stop just nearby, you may also want to take the famous Tram 28.

The space

Children under 12 do not pay. Being in a historic district of Lisbon listening to church bells ringing, listening to a fado in the neighborhood or just drinking wine on the porch.
Completely modern and equipped house in the oldest district of the city.

Guest access

As a rule check-in and check-out are schedule for 15PM and 12AM respectively. Not interfering with other guests, these schedule may be adjusted to your needs.

Interaction with guests

I am always available to help guests whenever they ask: questions, concerns, general information.

Other things to note

The apartment is in the third and last floor of building but without elevator, so you should consider it to be handicap for guests with reduced mobility.

Located in a historic area only cars are allowed to permanent residents and taxis, so if you rather go by car, you may park in a nearby street or use one of the secure car park (8€/day) next to Santa Apolónia

Stairway to Heaven was a lovely haven in beautiful Alfama. Close to restaurants and tram lines but quiet and peaceful also with the sounds of Fado floating through the streets! The apartment is nicely decorated and very comfortable and Simone is a wonderful host. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay for anyone looking in Lisbon.

A fantastic find! You will struggle to find a more perfect apartment nor a more helpful host - she even picked us up from the airport. Beautifully clean, well equipped and perfectly placed in historic Alfama district. Simone promptly answered any queries we had about the flat before our visit, and we kept in touch via What's App during our stay. Excellent communication. It was 41 degrees while we were there - a scorching few days and Lisbon's thousands of steps means I am aware of muscles in my calves I didn't know I had. Don't hesitate - book it! You won't regret it!

We had an amazing stay at this apartment; Simone's amazing hospitality, the location in Alfama, and the balcony views are just a few of the reasons why you must stay here if you are planning a trip to Lisbon. Simone went out of her way to pick us up from the car rental station in Lisbon and drove us to the apartment to help us get settled in person, which was very sweet of her and unexpected. Simone is full of life and we had a great conversation en route to the apartment; even though we've lived in Lisbon before, she provided us with some fantastic recommendations and left a useful list for reference at the apartment, as well as two timeout magazines. Simone also picked up some fresh fruit and a welcome bottle of wine which was a really nice touch. Simone stayed in touch with us during our stay to answer our questions and messaged us on a few occasions when she thought of interesting things we could do. It was clear that she wanted us to make the most out of our stay - I have never experienced this kind of personalised service before on air b n b. As for the apartment, it's cosy, comfortable, newly renovated, clean and well equipped with everything we needed (coffee, tea, modern bathroom and cool interior design) There are three little balconies, so take your pick as they all have nice views! The location is in the heart of Alfama which is a great spot, centrally located from which it is easy to get around.

I came from northern Portugal to Lisbon 20 years ago. I love the city of Lisbon, life, friends and family. I love meeting other people, exchanging impressions and traveling. My favourite hobbie is writing, if I could I ll spend my life traveling and writing about people, places, food, Habits, ways of living and living, just as I had been for a while in Africa and I had a blog. For me to be host is the accomplishment of some of that. My house is your home and it will certainly be home to very happy stories.

Je viens du nord du Portugal à Lisbonne depuis 20 ans. J'adore la ville de Lisbonne, lumière, vie, amis et la famille.J'aime rencontrer d'autres personnes, d'échanger et de se déplacer. Mon passe-temps favori est d'écrire, si je pouvais passer ma vie à écrire sur les gens, les lieux, la nourriture, les habitudes, les coutumes, les manières de vivre et d'être, comme cela est arrivé quand j'étais pendant un certain temps en Afrique et j'ai eu un blog . Pour moi, être la maîtresse est la réalisation d'une partie de cela. Ma maison est votre maison et seront certainement des histoires maison très heureux.

O meu hobbie favorito é escrever, se eu pudesse passaria a minha vida a escrever sobre as pessoas, os sitios, comida, habitos, costumes, maneiras de viver e de estar, tal como aconteceu quando estive durante algum tempo em Africa e tive um blog. Para mim ser anfitria é a realizaçao de um pouco disso. A minha casa é a vossa casa e certamente vai ser a casa de historias muito felizes.
