A room with a view

by Tayto about Sheraton Hotel Lisboa

The Sheraton is not the prettiest building you will ever see but it is one of the tallest in Lisbon and has great views of the city especially at night from the top floor bar / restaurant.

It has a nice gym and pool area....though if you are an averagely fit person you can feel a bit intimdated by Lisobn's body beautiful set who invade the gym from about 4pm onwards.

As a large hotel it has all the facilites you can expect and is only a short walk or taxi ride to Lisbon centre. Pool area is nice though not a great view just some ru down buildings nearby.

Good accommodation with all mod cons
Very close to the city centre

Great view from the top - worth the stay for this alone.....having a beer and wathcing the sun set over Lisbon or the night time skyline of the city. Even if you don't stay here go for a drink some night just for the view.

THE MOST BOMBED HOTEL IN EUROPE

by DAO about EUROPA HOTEL (BELFAST)


Thankfully today, the only thing that gets bombed in this hotel now are the guests in the bar. With 2 excellent bars, that’s easy to do. The Europa is THE hotel to stay in and be seen at. When Royalty and Diplomats come here, this is where they stay. In my case, my job was kind enough to let me stay. So what is the history? It was opened in July 1971 and was clearly THE luxury hotel in Belfast. The proletarian IRA saw this as just about everything they didn’t like and promptly started setting off bombs in, out and nearby the hotel. Over 30 times they forced redecorations. Fortunately that’s all they did.

Today it has been massively refurbished and redecorated, without any outside help, to a luxurious finish. The rooms are compact, but full of good things like supersoft beds, great monsoon showers and flat-screen TV’s. Yep, I have pictures of all that!

This 4-star hotel has 240 bedrooms, including the 56 Executive Suites. If you simply must work, you also get WiFi internet access.

Each room has:
International direct dial telephone
Room service available (7.00am - 2.00am)
Tea & coffee making facilities
Trouser presses or irons & ironing boards
Hair dryer
Laundry & dry-cleaning available
Fantastic soap & shampoos in your bathroom
Lots of huge fluffy white towels

Please note: The Gym facilities are elsewhere and keep short hours, ask for details


You get:
• A great nights sleep
• A fantastic buffet breakfast that will fill you up for the day
• You are in THE hotel!
• Great lounge bar that’s a real nightspot
• Free newspapers, magazines and maps in the lobby

Need an answer soon please!!

by Turska

My sister and her husband are at Cascais, and they are wondering if they could rent bikes and bike to Sintra. She asks me was the road too hard to bike, but we went by train from Lisbon, so I don´t remeber. At least Sintra was higher than Lisbon and Cascais.
They are really sporty (go to gym every day, run 15-20km a day) but they don´t bike so much. Need opinions soon, please, because they are going there tomorrow morning! If you think the road is bad for driving, would a scooter be o.k., or should they just rent a car?

Re: Need an answer soon please!!

by cachaseiro

There are good bikes for hire in Cascais, but it´s one heck of an uphill ride to Sintra and i would say that you should have some biking experience and a certain level of fitnaess to make it up there and back in a day.

Re: Need an answer soon please!!

by LoriPori

We were in Sintra last year, and yes it was quite hilly on the way there. Some of our group rented electric bicycles in Sintra and they loved it. If they cannot find electric bicycles to rent in Cascais, I would look into scooters. Even if sister and hubby are fit and sporty, the area would IMO be quite challenging.

Re: Need an answer soon please!!

by Turska

Thanks to you, I will tell them that. The road is safe anyway to go with scooter (all the way from cascais?) Tell you the truth, mys sister hates scooters, but her husband says he would love to use it.
They are most fit people I know well, but it might be boring to go up all the way.

Re: Need an answer soon please!!

by Durfun

It is SERIOUSLY hilly!! Even super-fit bikers would have to pedal odd-their-seats, and walk many sections!!

Re: Need an answer soon please!!

by LoriPori

How about taking the bus to Sintra - good connections in Cascais - then renting the electric bikes when arriving in Sintra. The Hills will probably be more fun that way and you can bike when you want and use the electric when tired,

Re: Need an answer soon please!!

by Turska

I will tell her the news. I don´t know why they didin´t talk about bus. Maybe because they never use it at home either-they are not used to public transport maybe :D

Re: Need an answer soon please!!

by suvanki

I'd take cachaseiro (The Biking Viking)!!! and Lori Poris sound advice!

Re: Need an answer soon please!!

by xymmot

The hills will kill, so get a scooter to drive along the coast. Cheers Tommy x

Re: Need an answer soon please!!

by Turska

O.k. I will send a sms once more, but I think they will soon be on their way. (if they are not at the hotel gym first :D I can´t understand why to go to gym, when they can do outdoor-sports there! The must be addicted to gym!)

Gyms in Europe

by CTnightowl

Hi, I am very active and will be backpacking Europe for 6 weeks. I know I will be walking 20 miles a day with a heavy pack but would like ot get some other exercise while I am there. Maybe hit a gym once a week during my trip. Are gyms pretty common in Europe? How much will it cost roughly for one days use? Thanks!

Re: Gyms in Europe

by Roadquill

I have always been able to find them but they have been expensive, 15 euro for a day pass. Madrid, San Sebastian, Paris, Pamplona. The staff in the hotel reception area are usually clueless, but I found if I asked at sporting goods departments, the young guys generally knew.

Re: Gyms in Europe

by rachel_sun

Yes they are common.They have them in Spain and France.Maybe slightly less common in Greece.Depends where you are I guess.Small Islands may not have them.They will be 2-3 Euros a day .

Re: Re: Gyms in Europe

by Suet

In France, try the Office de Tourisme in every town, they will have a list of the gyms, about 3 euros I think.

Gym Evasion in Amboise is very friendly!!! say hello to Pascale for me!

Re: Re: Gyms in Europe

by rachel_sun

Good point Suet.The local tourist offices will know where the gyms are.

Re: Gyms in Europe

by Sjalen

If you're in the Nordic countries, this is a gym you'll find in all countries:

Otherwise, why not book yourself into a hotel with a gym now and again - they are abundant, albeit maybe a bit expensive for a backpacker...
