Harriet, Victoria and Molly are here to help give you the inside track.

The nineteenth century property is housed in an ancient courtyard, with the architecture kept very much to its original roots despite extensive renovations.

All 42 bedrooms over look the river Tagus and Alfama, and are authentic and contemporary in style. The interiors of the hotel have been designed to provide a Portuguese home feeling, with a laid back ambience.

For wining and dining The Memmo Alfama Terrace wine bar and pool on the first floor serves a great selection of local Portuguese dishes and wines, and is also a great location to hear the buzz of the city and view the sights and Tagus River.

Memmo Alfama is a short distance from downtown Lisbon, which can be accessed by the famous yellow trams - a great way to discover the city.
