Summary of Day 2 In Lisbon

A travel blog entry by fiwigang

... Dubai and Lisbon places as 10 out of 10! I think I need some harder critics!
We had a reasonably early start with walking the streets at 8.30am looking for a place to eat. We found a lovely cosy cafe with the Chows and Fongs being the only customers, and a waitress that did not speak any English! We got what we wanted with lots of sign language and the coffee was to die for! The children and adults were happy and ...

Day 29 - Lisbon

... mid 15th century by the Augustinian monks. The best cloister we have ever seen...had a touch of Harry Potter about it. Could happily have spent the morning there.

Then a drive around Lisbon. A very busy capital city, lots of traffic, with parts that are fantastic and parts that are very ordinary. There are tram lines with people parked over them, construction work and we even saw ...

Waking up well and truly hanging we dragged ourselves to the Brick Cafe for breakfast. A strange combination of continental, fry-up and a cheese board but pretty good. The waiter gave us a copy of Timeout featuring the cafe, 'sorry mate didn't order a bowl of look how good our cafe is with my orange juice'.

By the time we got back the girls had arrived, and ...

... kidding me? Apparently not. He wanted to park the car at Mundial for us - not in your life buddy. So he put Mom in a taxi and we followed it to the "new" hotel. They are paying for all of our taxi's where ever we want to go, 2 rooms in a 5 Star Hotel - VIP Grand Lisboa, breakfast and lunch. You would think it would be more cost efficient not to overbook! After checking in - about 4:00 pm by now - we were starving - but none of the restaurants were open between 3 and 5! so ...

Shopping hazing and drumming

... the University kids moved into the Avenue and Rossio square to carry on with the hazings the first year kids. They had to sing in the streets and beg for donations. Now they are currently being 'baptisted' in the water fountain in the park. About a half block away there's an area where the older black men congregate and tell stories. Somehow a random drum session got going there which was awsome to ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Metropole Lisbon

    Charming hotel in a great location

    from

    This is a boutique hotel, with a charming ambiance.

    The staff was very helpful and the decoration is quite nice - they have furniture from the 1920's.

    The rooms with a balcony have a wonderful of the Praša do Rossio and the Castle of Saint George. The bathrooms also are very clean and comfortable.

    It is located at the very heart of Lisbon, at the main plaza of the city, amongst historical buildings. The subway and the train station are just a two-minute walk far from the hotel.

    Do not miss the wine called "Bušaco", which is one of the best Portuguese wines and is produced by the hotel's owner.

    Dirty hotel with an awful smell

    from

    Have stayed here for 3 nights in Sept 05. The hotel is very dirty, the carpets are filthy with lots of stains. There is a smell throughout the hotel that is quite sickening. The staff seem rude, haughty. Location is the only good thing about this hotel.

    Good choice

    from

    Great location, gorgous view, bath need improve but I love the location close to everywhere and good price.THe breakfast was nice.

    Great Location. OK Hotel

    from

    My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and loved the location for touring Lisbon. The rooms on the front of the hotel (with balcony) are a must for views of the Praca Roddio and the Castelo.

    Room was small (and they only had two single beds -- on our honeymoon!) but clean. Good value. Go for the location, not the accomodations.

    A great spot on the Praca Rossio

    from

    We stayed three nights at this lovely boutique european hotel in September 2003. We had a nice large room with a small balcony facing the square (praca). Great location in old Lisbon- can't be beat!

    Loved it

    from

    My husband and I stayed here for 5 days several years ago but still think about how much we loved it. Our charming room had a large terrace that overlooked the main square with an amazing view of the castle on the hill beyond the square. Great terrace to have a glass of port and watch the sunset. Hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of so much great shopping and so many restaurants. We loved it.

    Excellent hotel and location but....

    from

    check that you have a double bed when you book; they seem to ahve a fair number of twin rooms. Which we were allocated ?

    I don't know who recommended room 38....39 was much better (twin beds though).

    Hotel manager was extremely helpful in making alternative arrangements.

    Make sure you ask for a room overlooking the square

    Didn't like it.

    from

    I relied upon guidebooks and TripAdvisor for all of the hotels that we stayed in on our trip. The only hotel I would never stay in again is the Metropole. We had a hard time locating the hotel because it was just a small doorway in the building...you had to be upon it to read the Metrople sign over the door. The next surprise was to have to walk up two flights of stairs with your luggage. The man behind the reception desk for the two days that we were there had totally no personality. The next impression was of the ugly carpeting in the hallways...and in the room. The room and bathroom were actually quite nice...but you didn't notice because the carpeting was so ugly. There was trash outside the entrance door. I guess after Madrid and Barcelona which were so clean and lovely, that Lisbon was a shock. There were men and women (with babies) begging everywhere...when you wouldn't give them money, they would curse you. One man yelled at another man who gave him some money that it wasn't enough...apparently he was a beggar with a minimum of 2 Euros. Lisbon was worth seeing...but we were there two nights and a day, and that was plenty. We had an early morning flight and left the hotel at 3:30 a.m. and dragging those suitcases down those stairs at that hour was a very disagreeable experience. Next time I would stay at the Meridian.

    Excellent views

    from

    We have stayed in many Lisbon hotels, but this is probably the best 'all-rounder'. It's position couldn't be better, no dragging yourself up-hill after a long day sightseeing. The best rooms have views of the castle, so ask for those on the upper floor where not only is the view better, but it's quieter. The rooms are large and comfortable, the bathrooms are large and adequate. Breakfast is reasonable, but served in what is little more than an alcove. Public rooms (or should I say public room) are very tasteful, and the staff are pleasant. Recommended.

    Perfect location

    from

    The Metropole is an understated boutique hotel in the heart of Lisbon.

    The good size rooms facing the plaza are best because you can see all the way to the St Jorge castle. They greet you by name almost immediately...feels like coming home when you get back after a long day of walking. I love the place.
