Located in the picturesque Alfama district and featuring both a typical Lisbon patio of yore and a beautiful whitewashed facade, the Memmo Alfama dates back to the 19th century. A work by Portuguese artist Vhils on one of the exterior walls sets the tone. The lounge area is cosy and the concierge is a fount of information about local sights and attractions.
There are many books and much documentation available in a small space dedicated to the history of Lisbon. Neutral tones (beige, taupe and white) and wood are featured in the rooms. Located on the first floor, the Memmo Terrace Alfama has a red-coloured pool in striking contrast to the blue of the river, and the wine bar is the ideal place for a drink facing the Tagus. An ideal spot to catch a glimpse of the Portuguese art of living.
