Directions to Hotel Alif

by nancynb

I have been successful using the Viamichelin site to get driving directions except for the directions from the Lisbon airport to Hotel Alif, at Campo Pequeno 51. (I know which bus to take but not how to actually drive there). Arriving on friday afternoon after overnight flights....Can anyone help?

Re: Directions to Hotel Alif

Your hotel should be near the bullring arena if my memory serves me right.

Re: Directions to Hotel Alif

by nancynb

Yes, that is the one. Will it be relatively simple to drive there from the airport? It says 10 minutes...but I assume that is 10 minutes of one knows the way!!

Re: Directions to Hotel Alif

by Maurizioago

I think you cant miss the bullring. It's big and you'll see it on your left side coming from the airport.

Write to me if you need any other info about Lisbon and Portugal.

Try this on ViaMichelin.

Departure: Lisboa Praca do Aeroporto.
Destination: 1000 Lisboa Campo Pequeno 51.

Distance from the airport: 3.5kms.
Time: 8 minutes (Good luck in Lisbon traffic)
The Hotel Alif is located right beside the Campo Pequeno Bullring.

From the airport, drive straight on towards the center of Lisbon, direction south.
Pass a roundabout with two viaducts spanning over, and continue straight on through Avenida Gago Coutinho. This avenue is sided by villas on both sides.
At the end of this road, there's a square with buildings with pink facades, called Praca Sa Carneiro.
From this square, take the 2nd street on the right - Av. Joao XXI. At the end of Av Joao XXI it's Campo Pequeno with the huge bullfight arena on the right bound. I think the hotel is just before Campo Pequeno.
I assume that you pick a car at the airport. If you're not sure of the way, quite easy though, ask the rent a car staff. Usually they give you maps and some infos.

Where do I stay? Help!

by jenlrobers

I am looking for a place full of character and charm. I will be staying 4 nights at the beginning of September. I would like the place to have a nice bedroom with a clean bathroom. I am willing to spend a little over 100 US dollars a night. It would be great if it was cheaper.

RE: Where do I stay? Help!


Here are two suggestions of charm with a VIEW:
Albergaria Senhora do Monte
(try also at:

Casa Costa do Castelo (this one belongs to friends of mine), also with great view:
the prices are within your limits.

I´d advise you to check for other hotels, too
They usually have good offers.
But need to know the dates.
Hotel Alif or Hotel Sana Reno for example have good prices for September on this site.

by diana_renou

Hi, does anyone know which is the best hostel in Lisbon: Pensao Portuguese, Residencial Florescente or Gran pensao Alcobia? I'm looking for an inexpensive room...but I want it to be clean, confortable bed, private bathroom an if it is posibleTV. jaja!! to much!!! I can pay no more than 70euros per night for a single room. (Sorry about my english) Diana

Re: which is the best hostel?

by pwlewis

For 70 euros, I would think that you could find even an inexpensive hotel. For comparison sake, you might want to try You might check Lonely Planet too.

Best of luck.

Re: which is the best hostel?

We stayed at Hotel Alif and were very pleased with it. We booked on and got the room for 58 Euros (that was a double). They are showing 66 E for a single this month. The hotel is very clean, right across from both the BullRing (where there are sometimes special shows), and more importantly across the street from both the hop-on-hop off bus and the local transit (easy to take bus from the airport also). Staff were friendly and breakfast (included) was decent. Second time we stayed there, we called the hotel directly to book, and they matched the rate , even though it was showing a higher rate on their website. We found it a great base for exploring Lisbon.

Re: which is the best hostel?


Travellers House is one of the most acclaimed hostels in Lisbon.
You'll spend a lot less than that. The only "con" will be shared bathrooms. But the place is lovely and could't be more centrally located in the historic heart of the city.
Have a look at:
where you can also check for other options.

Re: which is the best hostel?


Try also Dom Sancho I, at Avenida da Liberdade . It has private bathrooms. Subway station meters away. But you can perfectly walk to historic center (Baixa).

Travel Tips for Lisbon

Praça do Comércio Square

by a2lopes

Still known as Terreiro do Paço (the old Royal Palace was here 400 years until the big earthquake of 1755) this is the largest of Lisbon squares. Like a great amphitheater facing the river this is a vast space (112000 sq meters) lined on three sides by yellow buildings of uniform type, with high stone arches housing several public offices (ministries, etc), and a fourth side, which is the river Tejo itself, with a marble staircase with 2 columns, the Cais das Colunas (column quays’), where the caravels and trading vessels once docked.

In the center of the square stands the 14 meters bronze equestrian statue of King José I. This was the king that ruled the country when we were devastated by the big earthquake in 1755, and although the mentor of the rebuilding of the Baixa (downtown area) was its prime minister Sebastião José, known as Marquis de Pombal, the rebuilding of the town is depicted in the magnificent pedestal of this statue. This is a place full of story for Lisbonners, which celebrates many important events. Many kings were born here (on the palace) and the penultimate was assassinated -king Carlos in 1908. Prior to air traffic this was the place of arrival for the important guests (kings, queens, etc.) as they come from the sea.

On the right corner, close to the arch, is the famous Café Martinho da Arcada (see link), which has making Portuguese typical dishes and excellent pastries since 1782 (oldest restaurant in Lisbon), and where the poet Fernando Pessoa, one of the biggest Portuguese writers of all time, enjoyed the afternoons taking some aguardente (spirit, literally fire water).

Contrary to some well known plazas in other European towns, Praça do Comércio is not yet totally exploit as a recreation area in a daily basis, eg. with restaurants and esplanades, and is still a major traffic point in Lisbon. Hopefully this will change in the future since from 2008 they close traffic on Sundays and there are many activities promoted by the city hall entities (a program called “Sundays the Terreiro do Paço is for people”. Moreover, there are many benches around the plaza to relax and after 2010 the Cais das Colunas will be reopen as a promenade place -Passeio Ribeirinho (riverside walk).

This is also the place to be if you come to spend the New Years Eve in Lisbon and you enjoy a popular night. There are always rock/pop concerts and big fireworks around midnight. Bring your own bottle and join Lisbonners in this town event.

This area is served by several city bus lines, metro line, and of course by boats coming from the other side of the river. Also nearby we have 2 major train stations: to the west Cais do Sodré (suburban line to Cascais) and to the east Santa Apolónia (departure point to the north of the country and linking to Gare do Oriente).
From this square it is also possible to take some of the many tourist routes promoted by Carris either by tram or bus. Another nice option is to take the cruise along the Tejo (from April until October). There is also a tourist office, a wine taste point, and some exhibition halls.

For more information about the square please see here

NOTE: This square will be under reconstruction in 2009 as the water supply and the sewage systems are under renovation (according to the responsible companies “until June 2009” but you know about this type of announcements).

When you do get a car, take bridge over the Tagus

by Groentje

You might get stuck in traffic during the week if you arrive between 8.00h and 10.30h, but getting into the city via the Ponte de 25 Abril is really cool! When coming from the South, this is the way to get into Lisbon. All traffic coming into Lisbon has to pay entrance fees, all traffic going out does not. It's a good system, but it slows down traffic immensely.
During the weekend there should be no problem, as business people head out for other places around Lisbon.


by LysDor

One of the most beaufiful part of the city isParque Eduardo VII

It´s located at the end of Avenida sa Liberdade , which is the main street towards Baixa.
Most of the central hotels are also found in this area.

At Plaza Marques Pombal there was the nearest metro station (Rotunda) that we used to get to the centrum.

Cultural ???!?? I do not...

by mauro_pd

Cultural ???!?? I do not really think this is CULTURAL, anyhow ... strolling for few days in the very heart of Lisbon I've been 'enquired' several times by 'street vendors': same boring vendors like all over the world ??? Not at all: they offered me hascisc, maria (nickname for marijuana), undefined 'smoke', sunglasses, cameras ... so this is one of the ways it works in Lisbon: Funny !! If you don't want to 'buy' anything there's no risk at all: just say no and they do not insist with you ...
