... personal with the bulls, but I really did **** myself when I saw them. My run lasted all of about 40 seconds, including a self inflicted stack onto the cobblestone, getting up, seeing bulls and realizing they were actually rather large, running a little further and bailing onto a fence. Whilst short, I would do it all again for the electric atmosphere and pure adrenaline rush of it all.

Anyways, after our breakfast, (we ended up with some shower issues, and I had to figure out how to get the hot water heater going again...), we headed off to Belém, to the west (?) of the city. It is far enough away, that we took the tram (we had bought the metro cards, and just topped up as needed). On the tram, there were quite a few old people!

So we got to the Barcelona airport no problem but it was about an hour journey. Got on the and off the flights easy peezy lemon squeazy. It was nice to fly for a change. We were both getting weary with the train rides. We rode the bus half way then walked the rest of the 45 minutes with our backpacks on in +38 heat to our hostel. It was difficult to find because the entrance as it at the back of a gift shop...we eventually found it. We had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Amazonia Lisboa Hotel Lisbon
Tolles Hotel. Lage Lage. Etwas von der Hauptstraße entfernt, aber nah genug in einer ruhigen Wohnstraße. Sauberes Zimmer von angenehmer Größe mit Badezimmer. Echter Föhn. Frühstück war super. Sehr hilfsbereites Personal. Alle Fahrten mit Abholservice vom Hotel. Metro 4 Blöcke weiter. Bus 2 Blöcke. Sehr schöner Park, 1 Block. McDonalds und gute Restaurants um die Ecke. Einziger Nachteil ist ein kleiner Hügel. Mit dem Taxi nach oben für weniger als 3 Euro. Übernachten Sie nicht direkt in der City und buchen Sie in diesem Hotel. Das Stadtzentrum ist ziemlich staubig und schmutzig. Sanierungsbedürftig. Es ist sehr schön, am Abend wieder hierherzukommen. Sehr sichere Gegend.
Es war unsere erste Reise nach Portugal und Lissabon, deshalb haben wir im Internet nach einem guten Hotel gesucht. Aus vielen Möglichkeiten haben wir uns für das Amazonia entschieden und haben es nie bereut. Wir hatten ein sehr schönes Doppelzimmer mit Balkon zur Rückseite des Hotels (Poolseite) und konnten jeden Morgen die Sonne genießen. Das Zimmer war ausgezeichnet, und der Reinigungs- und Zimmerservice genau richtig. Das Personal war sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich, und es herrschte eine gute Atmosphäre im Hotel. Das Frühstücksbüffet war gut mit einem vielseitigen Angebot für jeden Geschmack. Die Umgebung des Hotels war sehr ruhig und friedlich mit einem kleinen Park in der Nähe, einer Grünfläche, wo man über einer Tasse Kaffee die Kinder beim Spielen oder die Hunde und Tauben beim Baden im Springbrunnen beobachten konnte. Wenn man Hunger hat, stehen verschiedene Restaurants zur Auswahl, und wenn man nur eine Flasche Mineralwasser oder etwas Schokolade braucht, gibt es auch einen kleinen Lebensmittelladen. Das Zentrum von Lissabon ist nur eine halbe Stunde vom Hotel entfernt, die Avernida de Liberdade herunter, und für den Rückweg (bergauf) ist die U-Bahnstation Rato nur ca. 5 Gehminuten vom Hotel entfernt. Das Bairro Alto ist auch in der Nähe des Hotels, am Rato vorbei und die Rue da Escola Politécnica hinunter. Geht man weiter in diese Richtung, kommt man zum Fluss. Wir kommen ganz bestimmt wieder.
I've stayed in Amazonia Lisboa Hotel in May of 2005 for 4 nights.
It was our first trip to Portugal and Lissabon so we searched the net for a good hotel. Among a lot of possibilities we choosed the Amazonia and we never had to regret.
After reading the review and seeing that the hotel had a 3.5star rating decided to give it a go but was very dissappointed. Hotel reception is very nice and the people working there were very friendly and helpful however, once past reception it is a different story the hotel is very tired shabby and dirty not something that I expected. My room was like a jail cell with only one small window to let in light and a single hard bed that did not make for a good nights sleep. I found the pool area to also be in poor condition there doesn't appear to much upkeep there either. I stayed over a weekend and was rather supprised to find that they close the hotel restaurant over weekends! there is very little to eat locally unless you want Macdonalds each night not the best of situations.
great Hotel. Location Location. Just out of the main drag but close enough on quiet residential street. Clean, decent size rooms and bath. Real hair dryer. Breakfast was great. Very helpful staff. All tours pick up at hotel. Metro 4 blocks. Bus ,two blocks. Lovely park, one block. Mc Donalds and fine restaurants around the corner. Only negative is a slight hill. Taxi up hill, less than 3 Euros. Opt out of the center of town and choose this hotel. The town center is quite dusty and grubby. Needs renovation. It's a relief to return here at nite. Very safe area.
This hotel was definitely a pleasant surprise for my trip to Lisbon. I went there expecting an average 3* hotel. What I got was a hotel that in many ways is better than some 4* hotels I have visited. Where do I start from? First of all, the pictures I saw online do not do it justice. It is very spacious, especially the rooms. There was enough room for another two double beds in the bedroom. Extremely clean, comfortable, cosy... I felt welcome immediately. The hotel staff were very friendly and attentive (from opening doors to calling the lift). The breakfast was modest but complete. I didn't feel that there was anything essential missing from the buffet. The swimming pool was very clean and a refreshing change in the summer but don't expect anything big. The lounge was also very nice and spacious. The hotel is located within walking distance to the city centre, but for those who like the easy ride, the Rato metro station is a 3 minute walk from the hotel. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and the huge and modern Amoreiras shopping centre where you can find ANYTHING from cinemas to clothing to gelaterias. The ride between the airport and the hotel was more or less 20 minutes during day time and 15 minutes in the early hours. I recommend taking a taxi to the hotel from the airport due to the city's hilly structure (unless you're travelling extremely light). It costs 13 Euros per taxi using a voucher from the tourist information desk. My stay at the hotel was undoubtetly a great start to my visit in Lisbon. Definitely going back on my next trip to Lisbon.
Loved the staff and the hotel
We were very pleased with the quality of the hotel given the price range. The lobby was very attractive, and the rooms were good size by European standards. The entire hotel was kept neat and clean. It is also close to 2 Metro stops and numerous bus stops. The buffet breakfast was excellent with a good selection of foods. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. When we came back to the room the first day, we found out that the heater did not work. Five minutes after calling the front desk, we were in a new room. They also helped us navigate the city, arranged a car for us to rent, made reservations for us at restaurants, and confirmed our flight home. All of this was done promptly and cheerfully. We would gladly stay there again.
I basically booked this hotel blind at the last minute and struck lucky with price, standard and location. An easy and direct bus ride from the airport, near to a main metro hub and near to good bus routes the hotel was in a good location. A tip though; if you have heavy bags take a cab as the hotel is up a bit of a cobbled hill from the bus and metro stops.
