"Sleeping like the locals" Lisbon Hotel Tip by Maari

Lisbon Hotels: 393 reviews and 510 photos

Have a look at the classified section in your national travel magazines or local city magazines. That's how I found the offer of a woman who owns 4 appartments in Lisbon and rents them to travellers. We stayed in a small two room flat in Alfama next to the castle for 35 Euros/day. It was great.

Unique Qualities: I liked to stay in an old typical building, maybe as old as the Alfama itself. We were surrounded by a supermarket, a pharmacy, a bakery and an antique shop (all very tiny). It was just interesting to see these people, who they spend their days, what kind of community they had built up. All in all it was a very familiar atmosphere there.
