... of some type. Pretty labour intensive work! Not sure how they would be to walk on once wet, but given that no path is level and seems to slope and slant in gentle waves maybe this would given some traction not immediately obvious. But very quaint, constantly walking down little cobbled streets. Some road ways are also made the same way, but many are just the garden variety bitumen. It's a very pretty city with modern buildings mixed with the ...
... is too current. One can only imagine what these people are now saying during the current financial crisis both countries are facing.
After the museum we headed into a restaurant area of the old town for dinner, followed by a trip on the metro back to the hotel. At the beginning of the week we were walking this, but as the temperatures increased through the week the uphill trek was exhausting. We did not see anything of ...
Today I took the double-decker bus to Cascais and the coast of Lisbon. Breathtaking views. I sat on top of the bus and it got very chilly. I was glad I had bought a windbreaker with me. I would find out when I got back to the hotel that the sun really took a liking to my face. I know I should have bought sunscreen for my face but....well what can I say? The sunburn I received was worth the experience of seeing the ...
... and the Atlantic Ocean.
We followed this up with a couple of days of poking around the many squares, and churches in the old city. We also explored the waterfront area with its numerous bridges (the Vasco da Gama Bridge is so long (11 miles) that engineers had to factor in the curvature of the Earth during its construction), and historic sites including the famous Belem Tower (the starting point for many sea voyages of discovery, and for some of the sailors it ...
... 2 in a very close affair. We glad of the chance to prepare properly, bathed in the morning sun, drank fresh orange juice and stretched out the aching limbs. Our semi-final was bound to be a close affair with Marlborough having plenty of time to tactically prepare. Charlie was closely marked and after a tense goal less first half, Marlborough went deservedly 1-0 up, after a series of attacks and resulting short corners. Many sides would ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Britania Hotel Lisbon
We stayed here at the end of November 2005 for a 3 night stay. The city was rainy and unusually cool, but the staff at the hotel was warm, inviting and incredibly hospitable.
Great Hotel, Excellent Location
Stayed at the Britania for 2 nights at the end of a European vacation in September. We loved the decor of the hotel, the location couldn't be beat and the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. Excellent value for the cost - would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Lisbon.
Greatest Little Hotel in Lisbon
The Hotel Britania is the hotel of your dreams! Tucked away, one street off the main drag, this hotel while small, is cozy, quiet and extremely comfortable. The atmosphere is that of a private club. I'm sure the rooms would be considered suites in other hotels. If you like baths, the tubs not only are large, but be warned, they fill fast so don't leave the room whilest running the water! All the staff is friendly, helpful and eager to please. Located directly behind the Canadian Embassy, all the charms and sights of Lisbon are a short walk away. I am so looking forward to my next stay, that I wish I had more reasons to visit Lisbon. Hotel Britania is without a dought, deserves the title, "Greatest Little Hotel in Lisbon"!!
The Britania Hotel was excellent. Not hte largest hotel, but by far the largest hotel room I have ever had in Europe, it was enormous. The staff were extremely helpful with anything needed, and the bathroom was well appointed and stocked. No complaints at all, would defintely stay there again. If it wasn't for its size, this would be a 4 star hotel without question.
Nice Hotel, good location, pleasant service
This is a pleasant hotel to stay in and a good base from where to explore Portugal. It's comfortable, rooms are a decent size and nicely decorated, bathrooms are nice and service is attentive. It's located just off the main Avenida Liberdade which is the main city artery. There are nice shops around and you can get the tram to the Bairro Alto just a few minutes walk away. Definitely recommend this place for a mid-higher end range stay - it's not a hip happening place but it is a nice place to stay.
Hotel with a personal touch
What a breath of fresh air. This hotel is small enough to get you personal attention, but large enough to be anonymous if you want to. Do get to know the charming staff at this hotel who could never do enough to help. We were lucky enough to be there for their 40th birthday celebration and were rewarded with free flowing Moet champagne in their bar which goes a long way to show how appreciative the management are of their guests. The rooms are large, recently decorated in a modern art deco style and the street outside is quiet despite being one block back from the busy Liberdade. This hotel was a great find.
Wonderful experience in a beautiful city
I stayed here during the Euro 2004 tournament. It was a wonderful expereince from the moment I walked in the door. The front desk staff was very helpful and informative about ideas for touring Lisbon. The room was perfect. There was plenty of space, the beautiful furnishings, and the bathroom was almost too much, especially from what I was used to in other hotels over prior weeks.
If you stay at the hotel, there is no restaurant on-site. Howver, around the corner there is Restaurant Santa Marta which is staffed by very nice people and serves great food at very reasonable prices.
Art Deco delight!
Based on the recommendations I found on this site, we booked a two night post-cruise stay at this property. We were more than pleased with it - it's in a great location, there are several really nice restaurants nearby, the staff went over-board to assist us, etc. etc. Looking forward to a return trip in 11/04.
Loved the Britania and the Hotel Staff
We just loved this hotel. The rooms were lovely, spacious and had everything you could ask for. The hotel staff was wonderful, they anticipated your every need. Answsered all questions, and gave us their help for even the most minor question.
The restaurant was very good. The location is great, you are close to the bus that will take you anywhere in this lovely city. There is a lovely bar inside the hotel which the front staff will make sure you have everything you want and will allow you to sit back and relax. The value is great and I would recommend staying at this hotel.
Quiet & Charming
We spent 3 nights in August at the Britania and found the hotel lovely, the staff friendly, helpful, and fully english-speaking, and the location convenient on balance although not in the center of things. We had a newly renovated room (definitely request one of these) which was spacious and extremely comfortable--done in the hotel's signature art deco style. The breakfast buffet was good but keep in mind that there's no restaurant for lunch or dinner. We would recommend this hotel whole-heartedly.
