Hotel in Lisbon

by anwen_morris

Hey fellow travellers!
My friend and I are off to Lisbon for a long weekend in June and I am looking for a fairly decent, well priced hotel in a very good convenient location. Flight was quite expensive and ideally dont want to spend a lot on hotel but dont want to ruin the weekend by staying in a horrible hotel. So suggestions welcome.

Thanks, Anwen

Re: Hotel in Lisbon


VT has tons of great suggestions/listings Anwen that can point to good accommodation bargains, good inexpensive hotels and pensaos right in Lisboa

Just do a search on Lisbon and look up and spend time on the many many VT members' pages with excellent pointers

My own favorite in this fantastic city is the charming turn-of-the-century B&B - the Pensao Londres located in Bairro Alto, an outstanding neighborhood to be at where bohemian happenings take place. Cruise thru the accommodation page I've provided and see it's to your liking

Ah, Lisboa, good choice indeed....happy trails

Lisboa is such a beautiful city, you'll love it. I agree that they are so many suggestions on vt for budget places to stay, the one I stayed is not budget nor near the center; I believe too that Bairo Alto, that was already mentioned, is a great area for a place to stay, if you do more research keep this in mind. Have a nice trip, you'll see, you'll love it :)

I took the advice the SOLODANCER, and he was 100% correct! I stayed at the Pensao Londres last month. It was a very affordable (65E) 2 star, but in a real, residential (not EuroDisney-like) area of Lisbon, with good, affordable restos within walking distance. Most rooms have private bath. I found it spotless, comfy, convenient, and the front desk was super-friendly and helpful. Small family-owned, non-corporate place.

Hello Anwen!
I would recommend to you and your friend to look here:
There are few very nice, small apartments. Located in the city center and not expensive at all!!
Please, let me know if it is going to be helpful :)
Good luck!

Travel Tips for Lisbon

Lisboa Card

by Mahieu

A very good deal if you plan on taking several means of transportation (tram, metro, bus, elevador, …) You can buy it for 24h, 48h or 72h. The card costs 27,50 euro for 72h, but it’s money well spent if you use public transportation a lot. The Lisboa Card also offers you free access or reductions in more than 20 museums or monuments.The trainride to Cascais and Sintra is also included in the price. You receive a brochure with all discounts when buying the card.
When you start using it, you have to write down the date, time and signature and tape it. From that moment on, it is valid for 24h/48h/72h.

Marriage to the River

by solopes

When I lived in Lisbon (I left in 1972) the city was divorced from the river. Ugly and dirty banks, abandoned buildings, dangerous territory!
With EXPO 98 Lisbon rediscovered the river, and now Tejo is not only the traditional theme for poems and fado, but also a well maintained resource, with lots of places where we can safely stroll, rest, or practice any kind of sport. I was not invited, but I do celebrate the second marriage of Lisbon to the river Tejo.

For wonderful views of the city, particularly the Castle, you must go up SANTA JUSTA LIFT or ELEVADOR DE SANTA JUSTA, also known as Carmo Lift, as it connects downtown streets with the uphill Carmo Square.
Located at Rua Aurea and Rua de Santa Justa, our VT Group got in line to enter a booth with a wooden interior, which accommodates 24 people - actually our whole VT group. Cost was 2,60 Euros per person.
Designed by Raul Mesner de Ponsard, an engineer born in Porto and an apprentice of Gustave Eiffel. Construciton began in 1900 and completed in 1902. Originally steam powered, it was converted to electrical in 1907. The Iron lift is 45 metres tall and is decorated in Neogothic style. The top story, the terrace, is reached by helicoidal staircases which were roped off during our visit.
The cage-like floor that we were on, still offered wonderful views of Lisbon Castle, Rossio Square and the Baixa neighbourhood.

Ginja is a cherry-like fruit, I don't know the name in English.
Ginjinha is the liquor made from this fruit and is a very famous Portuguese drink. Although it might not be a delicacy it is one of those traditions that are dying as young people seem not to enjoy it very much.
In the Rossio area there are still a few Ginjinha bars open (like the one on the photo in the Rua das Portas de S. Antão) and it is nice to walk in and see all the old men having their glass of the drink (which is usually served with a piece of fruit inside).
The most famous place is probably "Ginjinha do Rossio" (Largo S. Domingos, 8).

take very little...

if possible - and if flying out of Lisbon, bring only carry-on luggage. there's only one line where people queue up at the airport - meaning there are VERY long queues to check in your luggage. But with hand-luggage only there's a separate counter. bring comfortable walking shoes... you'll cover a lot of ground in Lisbon For once the Lisbon LP guide proved quite good - especially when it came down to recommending restaurants. It's possibly the first time I'm not totally disappointed with it
