Suits and Conferences Don't Match

A travel blog entry by homeworkfilms


... the end of the week the weather was scorching hot and I went through a couple of shirts a day to keep cool. After the conclusion of the conference my colleagues and I found our way to a restaurant right out of the 60s where I went round 2 on the Francesinha before saying goodbye to everyone and heading to an early flight back to Frankfurt.

I was really fortunate to be given the opportunity to attend the event and to present. I met ...

... them! Caught a taxi home as it was so hot and there was a huge protest march happening right on our street because we are about 100 metres from Parliament House. Thousands of people! Andrew, Bruce and I went out to a local restaurant (Di not feeling so well) but I didn't enjoy it very much and by the end of the evening I was feeling quite unwell again. Perhaps I had over done it during the ...

Oporto..... gotta love this city!

A travel blog entry by livingthedream


Been so many times, but just continues to get better and better every time….no surprise it keeps winning tourism awards.
Take a step back in time and walk the cobblestone streets of this beautiful city. Let’s not forget the food!! Francesinhas, Bifana’s, Sardines, Frango and of course Natas (Portuguese tarts).


The Balancing Act of the Accidental Tourist

... vehicle (never mind two!). Of course we met a vehicle on our way up...thank goodness it was an ambulance (just in case anything happened!) We enjoyed happy hour near the town’s Jesus Statue where the views were incredible and teenagers of times past seemed to have set up a clothesline around the neck of JC...(perhaps to scale him during the off tourist hours?!) The town itself was a work of art. No matter where we went....we found magic.

Now, there are two other photos I have posted and they once again highlight although more recently there is the tendency to avoid " mentioning the war".

As mentioned elsewhere St James has two roles in the history and life of Spain. Although not physical present for either. He is seen as the Pilgrim par excellence and through his intercession responsible for the Reconquest- the victory over the Moors. In The role of Pilgrim we ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grande Hotel de Paris Porto

    Excellent - a bit difficult to find because of all the roadworks


    A great hotel and an excellent breakfast - unfortunetly the centre of porto is being dug up and new cobbles are beling laid all over the place. But the hotel was excellent.

    Amazing Olde World Glamour and historic atmosphere - 2 star heaven !


    If you like hotels full of history and original features and oozing with olde world charm and glamour then the Grande Hotel De Paris is right up your street !

    Unbeatable location and great value for money


    This hotel is a stones throw from the city centre and the airport shuttle stop is about 150 yards away.I found the staff very helpful and accommodating.I pre-arranged for them to allow me to leave my luggage prior to check in and all day on the day of check out and experienced no problems.I found the room to be comfortable enough and the bathroom facilities fuctional and the cold buffet breakfast was more than adequate.There was also a nice lounge area and also free internet access.The hotel is perhaps just a little dated and it might be as well to request a room that does not face the street,as I found my room that did face the street a little noisy.That said I must say that the £25.50 per night b&b rate that I got through totalstay represented blinding value and I would look no further than this hotel if I stayed in Porto again.

    Great Budget Hotel in the centre of Porto


    We stayed for 4 nights in this hotel, and would recommend it. It is well situated in the centre of Porto, bus stops, taxi ranks and the train station are all within 5

    minutes walk, the Metro about 10 minutes walk. It is ideal to explore tourist attractions, the Port lodges in Gaia, and the restaurants and cafes in the Ribeira.

    The hotel is clean and comfortable, and overs above average breakfasts (included in the price) for this type of hotel. The staff are excellent, and gave use details of how to get to places in Porto, and managed to book us transport on a river boat to the Lamego area (which was slightly different from the normal trips available).

    We paid 52 Euros a night for a twin room.

    Great value


    I stayed there for one night. It was pleasant stay. The location is really great, you can reach the historic sites by walking. The hotel is well maintained, the room is clean and quiet considering the location at the central Porto. What I like the most about the hotel is the ambience. Breakfast was good with people serving the food were efficient and friendly. And the last thing, the price for the quality was unbeatable.

    What value!


    The Hotel was perfect for seeing central Porto. It is near enough to absolutely everything without being loud or hectic. It still gives the impression of a once very proud "Grande" hotel but hasnt changed much. You would be very hard pushed to find a nicer place for such little money. Try it!!

    Great Deal


    I stayed there with some master degree students on a field trip to Oporto. We found the hotel perfect for a low budget. A lot better then you normaly find for the price and with an ancient charm to it. The staff was very polite and friendly, we had a great stay. Breakfast was very good, buffet with a variety of choices. The rooms were very spacious and had a small balcony. Everything was clean and in good taste. The rooms had been recently remodeled. It's different from the average low budget hotel because of it is a hotel with personality in a great location, just in central Oporto. The website was very acurate.

    Great deal


    We stayed for 3 nights in August 2003. We were really surprised about the comfort and the great ancient furniture (they even had a piano in the breakfast-room!)We just can recommend it to everybody travelling at low budget!Greetings from Austria

    Better Luck Next Time


    My boyfriend and I stayed one night at the Hotel de Paris on our way to the Algarve. The hotel was decorated very nicely and the rooms were accommodating for a one or two night stay. The only problem with the room that stood out, was the view from the windows that opened to a small terrace. The room backed onto a group of buildings that appeared to be condemned. The smell was very unpleasant and there was dog feces on the terrace. The prices were reasonable compared to many hotels in the area. However the service, as was the case throughout Portugal, was very disappointing. Staff did not make us feel welcome upon arrival. I would only recommend staying here if there is not a reasonable alternative available in the area.

    Great Hotel in the historic district of Porto


    My wife and I stayed at the Grand Hotel de Paris for 10 days last August. It is a thoroughly delightful hotel. It is located in the heart of the historic district of Porto -- one block off the Praca de Liberade. The rooms are modestly but very tastefully furnished. Each room has a small balcony (really nice). A simple breakfast is served each morning in the dining room. The hotel apparently had its "glory days" back in the 40s. There are traces of the old elegance, and the place has been updated very nicely.
