    Business Stay for either Airport or Expos

    by

    This hotel was recommended to me by some colleagues who come to the area frequently. It is convenient for the airport, the expo center area, as well as being a good staging point for early departures across the Vasco de Gama Bridge.

    The hotel was comfortable enough, but I was not particularly impressed. The hotel did not have any special features but I will say that the staff was helpful and courteous to my questions. The rooms are in need of a little attention. The carpets are worn and dirty.

    Being in a rather busy area, the back side faces the train station and the front side faces the main street and the river. Given the option, I'd recommend the front side.

    The hotel is a bit removed from the old historic center, but can be reached easily enough by metro. It is a good location for business travelers, airport commuters or people who don't care to stay out too late.

    Unique Quality: Breakfast buffet is included.
    Parking garage is available for 10Eur/day.
    WiFi is available for an additional fee.

    Directions: Immediately across from the Orient Train Station. About halfway between downtown center and the Vasco de Gama Bridge

    Tryp Oriente, close to Oriente Station

    by

    At first look the Tryp Oriente seems too far from downtown Lisbon and all the action that is common for tourists. But when you take a look at the METRO stations you will see that just a 2 minute walk from the Tryp Oriente is the Oriente Metro Station, giving you a very convenient transit point to downtown.
    This is a very good and fairly pricey hotel, but in April they apparently have deals for off season and we got the room for only 63Euro per night including breakfast (which was varied and filling by the way).
    A modern and spotless hotel, great for those who want everything to be perfect.
    The photos show the view from the direction of the shopping mall and CARLOS (jorgec25) who came to meet us at the hotel (he also gave us help after our car was broken into, thanks much Carlos for being a friend).

    Unique Quality: One of the surprises here at the Tryp Oriente was their ability to help us. We had just had our car broken into and all our phone, camera and other machine CHARGERS stolen. The Tryp Oriente came up with chargers for both our phones so we could keep in contact with home and friends in Portugal.
    They also provide a free shuttle (taxi) service from the hotel to the airport.
    The only slight drawback to the hotel is the noise (if this bothers you of course and it was not very bad, but I mention it because I have friends whom it would disturb), it is bracketed on one side by the metro/train station and on the other by a main 4 lane avenue which leads to the Vasco de Gama Mall, the largest in Portugal, thereby BUSY.
    I guess that the most important point is that the staff were all very helpful.

    The good and the bad

    by

    Our tournament was held at Atlantico – Pavilhao Muiltiusos de Lisboa
    Sala Tejo at Nations Parc (Old Expo), so we wanted to stay as close as possible and this hotel offered the best rates at the nearest location (75 euros per night w/o breakfast).
    It is a modern hotel, a block away from the Oriente TRain/Metro Stations and a mall right across. 10 minute walk to Sala Tejo at the Nations Park and the water front with a bunch of bars and the furnicular.
    Inside: They were short staffed; only 1 person in reception who wasn´t the friendliest person and 1 Bell man we saw once. Maybe they were short of staff because it was a Holiday weeekend?
    Our room: It was pretty big with a big bed and a bathrrom. No special decorations or anything special to talk about. Our bed was harder than the floor and the pillows were awful. But the worse was that our room faced the train station, so we could hear the trains all night long, as well as the announcent of a trains arrival or departure. So if you stay here, make sure you ask for a room on the other side of the building; our room was #804.

    Unique Quality: Close to the Parc of Nations, Oriente Station and Vasco Mall. Pretty modern room with a big bed, tv, hairdryer.

    Extra noisy room with extra hard bed and the worst pillows ever.

    Directions: From airport, take the #44 bus, make sure you take it on the right direction.
    It is a 6 euro ride (with suitcases) from airport.
    Just right off Oriente Station

Parque das Nações (ancient...

by J_Antunes

Parque das Nações (ancient place of Expo'98)
In 1998 Lisbon held the world wide exposition under the theme 'The oceans a heritage for the future'. Today this area is called Parque das Nações and it's easily reached either by subway or train (Oriente Station). Oriente station was built by Calatrava and is the main station of Lisbon with connections to train, bus lines, urban train Lines (Azambuja, Sintra) and buses. There are also rent a car and other services.
Another major transportation element is Vasco da Gama bridge in the north area of Parque das Nações that opened in 1998 and is one of the biggest of the world and the biggest car bridge in Europe (with 17,3 kms). It opened with one of the biggest meals of history when thousands ate a huge Feijoada (Portuguese and brazilian dish composed by beans meat and rice). It is also used to the marathon, half marathon, mini marathon of Portugal and to a bike tour done every year (www.meiamaratonadeportugal.com).

The area has a big mall (Vasco da Gama with cinemas, nice restaurants, 164 stores and a hypermarket, www.centrovascodagama.pt). In the north area opened recently the Supercor a supermarket from El Corte Inglès with quality products (www.elcorteingles.pt). There is also the famous store of Cristiano Ronaldo, that is probably incredibly expensive. The area has also plenty of restaurants, bars and other shops. At night the casino is the big star with its nice bar, expensive restaurants, live and free shows, the concert hall and more than 800 slot machines and 22 game tables (www.casinolisboa.pt).

In Expo you can also celebrate nature, walking by the river, taking the cable car, walking in the beautiful gardens. But the big star is the Oceanário (www.oceanario.pt). It is one of the biggest aquariums of the world (open from 10h-19h in winter and until 20h in summer, costs 11€/normal ticket) and it was designed by Peter Chermayeff. It includes environments of all the oceans of the earth. In the south area of the Parque das Nações there is a marina, that has been close for some years but will re-open soon. Tejo Bike rents bicycles to travel around the park (http://www.tejobike.pt). you can also use the cable car that cost 2,99€ and is normally open from 10h-20h at weekends and from 11h-19h at weekdays.

In FIL, the international fair of Lisbon, many events are held (www.fil.pt). The Atlantic pavillion (18.000 seats pavillion of multiple functions), held the masters of tennis, the indoor athletic world competition of 1999, the MTV Europe Music Awards, and is normally a stage of concerts (www.pavilhaoatlantico.pt). Outside looks like a huge spaceship inside like an inverted ship. In the south area of Parque das Nações there is teatro Camões that normally has dance shows (http://www.cnb.pt/) and is the headquarters of the portuguese dance company.

Parque das Nações has several hotels with nice views over the river (Tryp Oriente, Tivoli, Olissipo Oriente, VIP Executive Arts) and a youth hostel (in the north area). The former Tower of the north area of the park will be transformed into a hotel.

There are some interesting buildings such as the Portuguese pavillion by the architect Siza Vieira, the train station by Santiago Calatrava, the knowledge pavillion by Carrilho da Graça (today the science pavillion). There's also a free ciber cafe at the knowledge pavillion (just climb the big ramp). Punctually there might be some outdoors activities. In the new years eve there are normally celebrations in this part of town, there is to be also an international fireworks festival I think in June.

And remembering that before Expo 1998 this was the former hidroplanes airport (planes that crossed the atlantic and many stoped in Lisbon), an area of polluting and degradated industries and a slaughterhouse, and now is a fancy, nice district by the river.
In these clips you can see a bit of what was Expo 98, how was the area before the event and some ads: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GDPEYTtTEw.

You have the Tivoli Oriente Hotel (parque das nações).

Re: Going to Lisbon Aquarium ... hotel recommendations, in that area please!

by J_Antunes

Hello. I would recommend Hotel Olissipo Oriente a 4 stars hotel not far from the aquarium (walking distance). Go to booking.com where twin/double bed costs 194USD/night. I think Tivoli is much more expensive and this one is quite ok.

Have a nice trip!
