    low cost


    It is a very simple accommodation with private bathroom, the rooms are normal spacious with a high ceiling.No TV in the room.It is cheap and has more privacy than a dormitory.
    excellent location and for lovers of simplicity.
    The hotel has 4 floors,the rooms are in a corridor from the lift/stairs.
    the rooms number 01/10 are near the lift and the rooms 06/07 are at the end of the corridor.There is some noise from the street car noise and rubbish collecting around 01 am.
    higher rooms,backside and far from the lift will be probably quieter rooms.
    the street rooms have fresh air and some view

    Unique Quality: excellent location near "baixa" rossio,cheap

    Directions: metro 'rossio','chiado' is also nearby

by nikobe

If you're looking for a mall try the Centro Vasco da Gama (link below). It's easily accessible via the subway.

It depends what you mean by 'good shopping'.

Lisbon is full of shops, of course (independent and chains), and shopping centres. But no more so than any other European city I have visited, Prices seemed a bit lower than in the UK, but not very much. If you have to exchange your currency to euro then you may find little or no difference.

It's a lovely city to visit, with much to explore and enjoy....I recommend it highly. Whether you think it good for shopping will depend entirely on your personal tastes and your budget.

Lisbon is a good shopping city. Besides the link give below to Vasco da Gama shopping, have a look at the VT pages about Lisbon - shopping. It lists various huge shopping centers. The biggest one is most likely "Colombo" close to the Benfica stadium.
Across the Tejo river is the Freeport outlet center in the town of Alcochete. Have a look at the Freeport web site ( It states that there are busses from Oriental train station in Lisbon to the center. By car it is approx. 30 min from the city center. The price level there is lower than in town (-30%) and many shops offer special sales, which makes it very attractive. We bought a lot of stuff there.
Enjoy your trip!

Re: shopping in lisbon


Colombo shopping mall in Lisbon is the largest in all of Europe. So you can start here.

Then there's Amoeiras shopping mall in the Estrella neighborhood (beyond Bairro Alto).

There's also the mega complex El Corte Engles, the Spanish-franchised stores located at the top of Parque Eduardo IV (best approached from the Avenida da Liberdade).

If you like smaller boutique-style shops, the Chiado area (next to the Baixa, the lower part of Lisbon)the Armazen do Chiado is a mall comprising many small shops as are the areas especially on Rua Garrett full of interesting and hip shops.

Walk a few step down to the Baixa and you have a gamut of little shops/stores especializing in leather goods, ceramics, carpets, wines, jewellery and of course more clothing.

Chiado is one of Lisbon's most popular districts for shopping and coffee. Its famous Cafe Brasileira attracts both locals and tourists, especially its statue of Fernando Pessoa, a famous Portuguese poet that used to write in this cafe.

Casa dos Bicos (House of Spikes)

by a2lopes

The Casa dos Bicos is one of the most emblematic buildings of the Portuguese Capital, not only because of its curious name, "House of Spikes", but also for its façade decoration, covered with diamond-shaped stones (a total of 1125).

Situated on the "Campo das Cebolas" (the "onion field", as the onion market was here once), actually on the Rua dos Bacalhoeiros, on the western side of the Praça do Comércio, this 16th century palace was built by the son of Afonso de Albuquerque, the Portuguese viceroy of India, maybe after this business man returned from a trip to Italy where he saw for the first time the Diamond Palace of Ferrara and some palaces of Venice. That’s why we can spot a quite unique architectonic style, marked by the Italian Renaissance, with an irregular distribution of the windows and doors, all in different shapes and dimensions. Nevertheless, the two upper floors have exuberant arched windows characteristic of the Portuguese Manueline style making the façade quite eclectic.

In 1755, the earthquake destroyed part of the building. The main façade was destroyed, and the two upper storeys of the façade facing the Bacalhoeiros street (the current main façade) came down. The house was kept in possession of the Albuquerque family until the 19th century, when it was acquired by a codfish trader. It was used for years as a storage house for codfish (Bacalhau). Around 1960 the house was acquired by the Lisbon Municipality. In the 1980s the house was restored and partially rebuilt according to pre-1755 drawings and paintings. It was then housing the Comissão dos Descobrimentos (Discoveries’ Commission) which among other things prepared the Expo 98.

Its interior is not usually open to the public, except when it hosts occasional special exhibitions. Nevertheless, it houses parts of the archaeological set discovered during the conservation works, including four Roman salting tanks, part of the Moorish defensive walls, part of a medieval tower and a piece of a mudejar pavement.
It is currently in the process of turning into the home of the Saramago Foundation, a space dedicated to the Nobel Prize-winning Portuguese writer. It will host special literary events and contain the author's library.

There are tourist shops in the vicinity as well as cheap restaurants known for their traditional grilled fish dishes.
Walk from Praça do Comércio (Comércio Square) where you have many buses.
Phone: 218823470
Only opens for temporary exhibitions.

I know they probably taste great here, but I don't like caracois (snails). Ricardo, my lisbonese friend, told me Portugueses love snails and even eat them as a summer snack.
Look at these hanging snails!!!!

Estoril Open

by J_Antunes

Want to see the major stars of the tennis world while in Lisbon. In here you can do. Estoril Open in Jamor, really close to the city of Lisbon, is the main tennis event in Portugal. Generally it happens in May and is a WTA and ATP clay court tournament. This tournament has attracted big names of this sport such as Muster, Moyà, Ferrero, Federer, Safin, Kuerten and others. The female side is much weaker in terms of stars it attracts.
This tournament is also a society highlight. Many of the Portuguese high society go to the court to see and be seen.
There is possibility than in future years the tournament will change place to a nearby location. Bring sunscreen and a hat since in the courts it can be really warm if it is sunny
