Travel Blogs from Lisbon
... to have to do so in Lisbon. Our last day we took a day trip about 40mins from Lisbon to the town of Sintra. I had high expectations of fairy tale like scenery after what I had read online and I was not left unimpressed. Right away it looked like something out of a story book. High hills and mountains dotted with castles, monasteries and fortresses, small colourful old town buildings and winding streets made for a perfect day of exploration. We started ...
... over the past few years. There are many differences between Portugal and America and how our different classes interact, and I personally see a few reasons for that. As of late in the United States, there has been a war against the wealthy as the middle class eroded greatly during the recession and the wealthy became more defensive as the newly poor questioned their wealth. At the same time, Portugal experienced economic collapse but ...
... whole trip. Part of the Lisbon tour was through Fatima, a district with steep and narrow pathways. The Segway easily maneuvered up and through the narrow winding streets. Simone also took us to taste the famous Jinginha (a sweet port wine made from small cherries) plus some tapas, mostly made of cod fish which is the most popular fish here. There was a Moors temple nearby, the wood, tile and mosaic design reminded me a lot of what we saw in Morocco.
... The tapas are nothing to write home about (ha,ha, literally) but my sandwich is not something I have seen before. Two slices of bread full of ham, bacon and peppered sliced beef. The sandwich has then been covered with cheese and grilled. It sits in a deep dish surrounded with a hot spicy tomato soup. It's really good, but glad Kevin's tapas were only average, because I needed help to eat it. We wander for a little while, but I seem to have hit ...
... br> Our next plan was to get to the Castle of St. George (Castelo de São Jorge). After some difficulty we got there. This is a moorish castle on top of one of the seven hills of Lisbon. There was a museum in the castle which housed items which had been discovered on the site through archeological digs. These date back to about 48 BC. The castle itself is in reasonable shape and we could have walked most of the wall. It is basically empty ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Aviz Hotel Lisbon
A Top Lisbon Option...
We can highly recommend this Lisbon hotel, which has recently been refurbed. The main pluses were:
- The rooms: We were upgraded to the Frank Sinatra suite on arrival, and it was very comfortable!
- The price: Through nethotels we got a very competitive rate (EUR105 a night for a double) - although I imagine it will be more difficult to get such a discount in the future as the hotel becomes more popular.
- The location: A 10 minute walk to the city centre and right next to the Marques Pombal tube station
- The breakfast: A fantastic buffet!
All in all, a great stay in a top European destination.
Loved the Aviz
I and my husband stayed at the Aviz Hotel in Lisbon during a weekend break. The hotel location is great, within a walking distance from the very historical city centre. Just 10 minutes way from Chiado, Bairro Alto, Sé. The hotel staff was very friendly and helped with everything you might need: the car park, a map of the city and instructions. The room was very nice, not too big but very comfortable and pleasant decoration. The bathroom was big, very clean and new. The buffet breakfast was good with a wide selection. The hotel keeps a classic style of decoration and services, keeping the class of the "old days" (but brand new).
The days in Aviz were perfect and we will for sure return when again in Lisbon.
Fantastic stay at a fantastic hotel
We spent four nights at the Hotel Aviz in late November, 2006. We had a lovely signature suite on the fifth floor. The room was in perfect shape, and spotlessly clean. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. We had booked our stay through the internet at a very favorable price, about one-third the posted rate, but received royal treatment by everyone at the hotel.
We enjoyed a birthday dinner at the hotel one night. While the price was a bit high by Lisbon standards, the food was excellent and the restaurant staff was extremely attentive.
We loved our stay in Lisbon. The hotel was magnificent and we had had a fabulous time. We cannot wait to return for a longer stay.
Ganz neu, super Lage, Sauna, Internet, Parkplatz inclusive!! Hier buchen!!
Was braucht man mehr? schönes echtes 4 Sterne Boutique Hotel in ruhiger Seitenstrasse der Avenida Liberdade (U-Bahn Marques de Pompal um die Ecke) 2005 eröffnet. Geräumige Zimmer (meist Blick auf Nachbargebäude), stilvoll eingerichtet (Bilder, Stilmöbel, echter Parkettfussboden, Bad komplett Marmor, Design- Waschbecken), Klimaanlage (Schaltung im Zimmer!), Flatscreen TV, gratis Internet (Laptop erfoderlich) und vor allem: absolute Ruhe !
Frühstücksbüffet im angeschlossnenen (berühmten) Gourmetrestaurant "Aviz" lässt kaum Wünsche offen (bis 10:30) zur "rushhour" müssen Sie Wartezeiten einkalkulieren....
Parkplatz und Sauna/Dampfbad im 8ten Stock sind immer inclusive (viele Hotels in Portugal berechnen hierfür recht happige Extragebühren!!). Wir waren wohl unter den ersten, die die Sauna benutzten (max. 3-4 Personen)? Zum Ausruhen danach draussen auf der Dachterasse über den Dächern von Lisboa!!
Fazit: ein glänzender Stern unter den 150 Hotels in Lissabon mit bestem Preis-Leistungsverhältnis (Lage, Service, Preis) Einziger Nachteil: wegen des hohen Beliebheitgrades immer recht frühzeitig ausgebucht ;-))
Tip: buchen Sie rechtzeitig (!!) direkt beim Hotel per email oder fax (92 EUR)
We booked via Venere & read Tripadviser reviews first. Aviz was like walking into an Oasis after a long journey. The staff welcomed us, answered every single question with a smile & nothing seemed wastoo much trouble. Its a first class hotel without the price tag. The full breakfast were the best of our 5 week journey around Spain & Portugal. The rooms are so stunning that you'll want to replicate its decor. They are beautifully cleaned every day (5 nts) & a chocolate was left on our pillows. ALL the staff are the same - polite, well groomed & friendly. Its well-located 1 min. walk from Pombal metro.
Its hard to find any criticism however, I found the bed a little firm whereas my husband loved it.
My husband and I spent 3 nights at this wonderful Hotel. Our room was quite spacious and had a very comfortable king bed. It was also great to have an LCD TV, bathrobes and big bath towels. The lovely marble bathroom was quite roomy and had a powerful shower. Breakfast was included in our rate and was exceptional, everything from cereals, bacon & eggs to 'fresh' fruit and pastries and smoked salmon! Usually, this is a rarity in continental Europe!! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I also wish to compliment the barman who made me one of the best vodka martini's I have ever had! In fact I had two! The location was very central, about a 10 minute walk to the old town and a 2 minute walk to the metro station. We highly recommend this hotel, and would look no further than the Hotel Aviz when we return to Lisbon.
Date 20th June 2006
Spent 4 nights in the Hotel Aviz at the end of May. The room was beautiful with very comfortable beds. The bathroom was large with a very powerful shower. Our room was on the first floor and had no view but as we were out sightseeing most of the time this was no problem. There was a mini heatwave the weekend we were there and the air-conditioning in the room kept everything lovely and cool. The best bit was the complimentary breakfast which included everything you could possibly want(including smoked salmon!). The staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is seconds away from Marques de Pombal metro. There is a small, furnished terrace on the roof, which I didn't find until the morning we were leaving. We got a very good price for this hotel using the internet. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.
Beautiful new boutique hotel...
I stayed at the Aviz for 2 nights in June 2006 - I wish it was for longer, it is a wonderful hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was small but very nice, with a fantastic bathroom and an LCD television. This is a new boutique hotel that replaces the old hotel Aviz; Lisbon's first luxury hotel. The location is good, about 10 mins walk to downtown. The hotel is located on a quiet street. Highly recommended. 5* service for a 4* price.
