We kind of stumbled across this hotel after happily staying in a youth hostel but desiring a double (instead of a tiny twin) bed. The price was fair, $40eu for two. Private bath, and surprise to us private patio (with no view). This hotel is in the heart of the Bairro Alto district. Literally, blocks from the "view point" and art / night life / restaurant district. Best of all, they had no problem storing our bikes for 3 nights right in the front lobby...the staff was beyond nice (spoke English) and respectfully kept our room very tidy. The night receptionist was an older man...so kind, fun...we would recommend and stay here again.

Hello! Well, I survived my night train to Lisbon! At 3am, just after I had dozed off I had a large man and a flashlight in my face mumbling 'passport' at me.

The remainder of the night journey was restless, and I was pretty exhausted when I arrived in Lisbon. At the train station I was told my hostel was 'very far' but I brushed it ...
... up front. As it was, we were already running very late thanks to our tour companions and Mauricio was lurking in the shop reminding us it was time to go. The whole experience at Herdade do Esporao was very disappointing, especially considering we had driven so dang far to get there. With the two hour drive back to Lisbon we basically spent the whole day in the car.
That evening we asked the concierge for a restaurant recommendation, someplace outdoors and casual, so ...
... for them. It developed this sense of conformism which I have perfectly experienced by having family in Venezuela. It’s a feeling that arises when too much time passes by and you can no longer achieve, or do, what you want that you become “ok” with something you didn’t want. Where having what you don’t want is “fine”. Living under this for so long, the Portuguese ...
... the fish to perfection and being amiable. The warmth of everyone was plangent. We had asked Carla for the polite phrases and used them, it was important.
During the day we walked this steep section of Lisbon down to the river a number of times, half an hour or more, humid work and the city has art front and centre from beautiful ceramics to painting to design. We walked up and had a small lunch at a cheap spot. Carla, like all Portuguese, has both eyes on the ...
... absolutely fantastic. Going to be really hard to top next year.
In the evening we went to the Host Hospitality Night in what was termed the VIP Pavilion. We were to,d it was a 10 minute walk which was slightly understated and with very little, really no direction we initially got lost. David and Carolyn Cook who were with us were of no help. A good thing along the way ...
