Our stay at Alfama5 by the castle was brilliant as so was the location. Apartment was very clean and nicely furnished with added extras like tea, coffee maker with pods, sugar, condiments, detergent for washing machine, etc. Thank you Mario for meeting us at the apartment on arrival and for being so helpful. There is a lift (elevator) a short walk from the castle that takes you down to a supermarket and lower level of Lisbon . From there you can turn left to walk to the river (Praca do Comercio) or right to Praca da Figuieira or Dom Pedro IV. Also the small bus, number 737 runs from Praca da Figueira to the castle. There is a little shop tucked around a corner near the apartment which has limited provisions but plenty of cheap, very good Portuguese wine.

This apartment is very convenient for visiting the castle and for exercising the legs for other interesting sites in Lisbon. The apartment contains an amazing kitchen (who else supplies garlic and herbs?)and othe facilities. It is quiet at night and the beds are warm.
Nice and bright place in front of a castle. Lively area at daytimes but very quietly at the nights. Easy to go enywhere, but need good legs in hilly streets.
