This hotel is a real find right in the heart of Lisbon's historic old quarter. The views from the terrace are terrific. The room was nice, clean and modern. The young staff was knowledgeable and very helpful. There was a great breakfast buffet service. The lounge served a really good selection of tapas. I can't say enough about the Memmo Alfalma. We will definitely stay there again. I love this hotel.

Stayed for 10 days in Sept/Oct in a queen room. Apart from a couple of minor niggles, couldn't fault the hotel. The staff were welcoming, friendly whilst remaining professional, and very helpful. Hotel was spotlessly clean. Very good selection at breakfast - bacon, scrambled egg, sausage, fresh fruit, cereal cheese, meats etc etc. - have had much much worse at 5* hotels. Had read previous reviews about the hilly location and, as my partner has a degenerative back condition, we were slightly concerned, but this was easily overcome by using taxis, which were reasonably priced - a taxi to/from the hotel to the centre was only a few cents more than paying for two of us to use the bus/tram. We did have two minor issues - the hotel collects and then redelivers the kettle with fresh cups, tea, coffe supplies every day. Unfortunately the delivery time was always when we were having a snooze and we were interupted despite having the 'Do not disturb' sign on the door. This was remedied by speaking with reception & the tray was then left outside when we had the sign on the door. I now understand the reason for the low chairs on the room terrace (see previous reviews). They are low so you can't see over the not very high dividing wall between individual room terraces. They weren't suitable for my partner due to his back condition and we had to carry out the stool from the room for him to sit on. Privacy could be easily improved by installing wrought iron screens on the low wall.
Wonderful place (restored old mansion), tucked into the winding streets of old town. The rooms and food are top quality, lots of character, and lovely views across the water. The staff is amazing, very kind and interested, always helpful. They suggested a few excellent restaurants just up the street toward the Se church. I can't say enough good things about this place. I can't wait to stay there again.

"River-view rooms in the heart of historic Lisbon"
We were very happy with our stay in Sweet Lisbon. The rooms were very comfortable and had a great view of the river. The common kitchen was available for simple meal preparation. Breakfast is included. The bathrooms are shared, but both the men's and women's bathrooms have two shower stalls and two toilette stalls; so there were no line-ups.
Ah, memories! I felt like a traveling college student again in this “sweet Attic Apartment.” Right down to the reprimand we received for evidently being too loud, the attic accommodations that were dorm-like, and the cold showers. We didn’t have high expectations for $30/night, and I guess you get what you pay for.
When I booked this hostel for one night for 13 euro (breakfast included), my sister told me not to go there. It's suspiciously cheap. I didn't care, because it was only one night. Now I wish, it had been more! I spent a wonderful time in the hostel with openminded people from all over the world, just sitting in the garden that belongs to this hostel, ate a very good breakfast, relaxed before the long trip back home. I strongly recommend staying at the Go Hostel Lisbon!!!
