"Where land ends and the sea begins" is a line in a poem by Luís de Camôes describing Cabo de Roca, the westernmost point of Europe. Such is the poetic allure of Lisboa.

We made our way to the beach about 5pm give or take and lied on the beach listening to music and writing postcards until the sun became too low to contain much warmth.

It turns out they were on a commemorative trip honoring Mendes. The man was Jewish and had been saved by Mendes when he was just four. His family was living in Belgium and they were some of the lucky people who made it out of Europe via Portugal.
I shook his hand and asked for a photo. What an amazing story.

The pages rotate through each person until it ends up with the starter again. The stories end up being funny and usually really messed up because you only have a single sentence to base your paragraph from.

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Lisbon - Continental
Ich habe hier zusammen mit meiner Frau und meinem 16 Jahre alten Sohn gewohnt und wir fanden es alle sehr angenehm. Als wir ankamen, fanden wir heraus, dass man uns fälschlicherweise ein Doppelzimmer für 2 Personen zugewiesen hatte. Als ich aber durch unsere Reservierungsdurchschrift beweisen konnte, dass wir uns mit drei Personen angemeldet hatten, bekamen wir sofort eine komfortable Suite zugewiesen. Da hatten wir auch ein separates Zimmer für unseren Sohn dabei. Das Zimmer war Standard für das Holiday Inn, aber sehr sauber und geräumig. Die Lage war super, nur 2 Blöcke von der nächsten Metrostation entfernt. Die Angestellten waren freundlich und hilfsbereit und halfen uns gerne bei unseren Restaurantreservierungen. Schöne Unterkunft, guter Preis, wir würden wieder kommen.
Very nice modern hotel. Location isn't perfect, but this of course depends on where you want to go. It's a five minute easy walk to Campo Pequeno, a shopping center with a metro stop and several buses, including the airport shuttle.
Great hotel - would definitely stay again
We spent a week at the Holiday Inn Continental while attending a conference in Lisbon. The hotel was very clean, room decor was lovely, and the king-size bed was very comfortable. The water pressure in the bathroom was wonderful - I wanted to take the shower home with us:)))
Public areas (lobby, restaurant, coffee shop) were spacious and clean and the location was very close to the metro (about a block away). We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel and will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Lisbon. The room rate was an added bonus - only 80 Euros per night!
I can't say enough about this excellent hotel. A 14 day prepaid rate plus a Priority Gold upgrade made it a real deal. The rooms are huge, tastefully decorated, with large baths.The staff is friendly and could not have been more helpful. Both the buffet breakfast and room service menu made for a pleasant stay. While the hotel is located away from the city center the easy access by an efficient metro system made my hotel choice a very affordable trip.
Very Nic e Choice
My wife, 16 year old son and I stayed here and found it very accommodating. We arrived and found that we had erroneously given a room for two; when I provided the reservation form clearly requesting a room for three, we were immediately moved to a very comfortable executive suite, with a separate room for our son. The room itself was standard Holiday Inn, but very clean and spacious. Location was great - just two blocks from the Metro; the staff was pleasant and helpful with making restaurant reservations. Nice place, good price and we'd stay there again.
The Holiday Inn Continental Hotel Lisbon is an excellent property that was undergoing renovations during out visit in February 2006. We did not notice any disturbances from the work and we would have never known it was going on if not for information provided by the management.
We stayed at this hotel in June 2005. We had booked a triple room but when we got there we were told the triple room would be too small so they upgraded us to a suite which was even better! The suite was very nice...the decor was a little dark and heavy but still ok. The bathroom was lovely. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. We did have a run-in with one of the restaurant staff who was initially a bit rude which was partly caused by language difficulties but this was quickly rectified. We ate twice at the hotel restaurant downstairs out of pure convenience because there was nothing much else around the hotel area. The food was very nice but for what you were paying, it was a very small quantity. The location of the hotel is not too bad because it is about a 5 minute walk from the metro stop but otherwise there is not too much around. There is a small shopping street with a few restaurants etc on the way to the metro but nothing that special. A metro is needed to go anywhere. We also did a half day trip to Sintra and the Estoril Coast with the company Tours For You who were very professional. I would definitely recommend that too.
Expected nice Holiday Inn standard
Only hotel we stayed in in Spain and Portugal with a king sized bed instead of two twin beds pushed together. Good location close to a metro station and only 15 minutes from the historical centre. Prices made up for the distance and the room was great value. Nice room.
