Sweet Lisbon Guesthouse is definitely not an hotel, there is no concierge, no air-conditioning, no SPA, and we only have one television in the lounge; however we welcome you and treat you as a friend. we provide you with free tips, suggestions for your stay or for your travel plans, help you in anyway we can and we also prepare breakfast! You will also benefit from a highly desirable location in the most traditional Lisbon’s neighborhood: Alfama
Our adventure in tourism started in 2006 with a knee injury and the necessity of renting our own apartment. Little by little we have grown and in 2012 Sweet Lisbon Cosy Holidays was born. We have to offer you a Guesthouse with one of the most beautiful views over Tagus River and several holiday apartments located through out Lisbon’s historic centre.
Alfama is one of the most emblematic quarters and one of the most rewarding for walkers and photographers thanks to its medieval alleys and outstanding views. It is a village within a city made of narrow streets, tiny squares, churches, and whitewashed houses with wrought-iron balconies decorated with pots of flowers, drying laundry, and singing birds. Visiting Alfama is to visit the architecture, the sounds and the smells of old Lisbon. This is one of the most typical quarters of Lisbon. Put away your map and wander aimlessly through its alleys and small squares. Set in a visually stunning hill, this is Lisbon at its most picturesque and the very soul of the city. Walk down towards the river and you’re once again in modern times: old warehouses have been renovated and turned into some of the city’s coolest hotspots.
