... of S. Jorge" it was huge. After that amazing tour. We stopped at a grocery store and bought bread lunch meat and cheese for our lunches for the week. It was about 35 euros, which is $47 USD. We went back to the hotel and had a ciesta (a short nap). Around 9 later that night we went to a free ...

As it was now mid afternoon, and with heavier drizzle becoming more prevalent, we decided to go walking around the city, before Conor discovered a Foot Locker shop that was actually open on a Sunday. Typically, Conor spent 25 minutes looking at things, none of which he actually bought, and decided it was time to leave. Conor has still not bought a pair of shoes this holiday, which is a miracle ...

It was supposed to rain today, but we woke up to sunshine. We went to Palm Sunday Mass at the church of Santo Domingo - this was the church that we had photos of earlier, that was partly destroyed in the 1755 earthquake, but the roof was rebuilt and the inside was left partly ruined to remind what nature can do.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Principe Lisboa Lisbon
I booked the Comfort Hotel Principe through an Expedia package, and arrived on a very early morning flight to Lisbon. Even though the check-in time is not until 4 p.m., the staff quickly ushered us to our room at 7:45 a.m., much to our relief. [Of course, we were visiting Lisbon in February, so this may be different during the high tourist season.] During check-in, the person at reception immediately took out a map and gave us all kinds of helpful information without us even asking. Throughout our stay, the staff was very helpful, polite and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable, and although it was not very big, there was plenty of closet space for storing our things and our luggage. Buffet breakfast was not extensive but perfectly adequate to get you started on your day without having to fuss around and find a place to eat, and the freshly brewed coffee was decent. When we booked a Gray Line bus tour, the tour company had no problem picking us up from the hotel. The hotel is also conveniently located right in between the Sao Sebastiao metro stop (blue line) and the Saldanha metro stop (yellow line), each only a five-minute walk from the hotel, and there is a pay phone right across from the hotel. Basically, particularly for such a great price, this hotel is an extraordinary value!
An excellent hotel for the price. We stayed there for 4 nights with 3 of us in one room. It's a clean, modern hotel with large rooms. The staff were very friendly and were always at hand to tell us the best areas to go.
It's under 5 mins walk from Sao Sebastoa metro station, which is on the main line for Baxia-Chiado (central lisbon). Taxi's to the main bars/clubs cost us 5-10 euros.
The continental breakfast was served from 6-10.30 which was great as we are not the earliest of starters.
We paid £15 a night per person and at that price you really can't go wrong.
After completing a walking tour in the Algarve (October 2004), I spent two days in Lisbon and stayted at the Comfort Principe hotel based on the reviews I read from travellers who stayed previously. Had it not been for the extraordinary hotel staff at the Comfort Principe (they were awesome!) and the fact that I was only staying in Lisbon for 2 days, I would have switched hotels. I stayed in a room on the 2nd floor that was extremely noisy. Extremely!! There was much street noise as well as noise from airplanes taking off from the Lisbon airport. I had to go to bed at night wearing earplugs. The hallway on the 2nd floor was either being rennovated or was just old and uncared for. Its missing paint and partial wall molding gave the hallway decor a "New York slum" effect. The toilet in my room made a constant dripping noise and the shower head was broken on my first day (subsequently fixed by day 2). The carpet in the room was old and spotted and the bed was on the hard side. But again, I decided to remain at this hotel because I was only staying 2 days and needed to be at the Lisbon airport very early on my day of departure. The Comfort Principe is fairly close to the airport. I also was very impressed with the hotel staff. They were amazingly friendly, helpful and spoke English very well. Had the staff been difficult to deal with or rude? I would left the hotel within seconds of arriving. I would love to know what floors the other people who submitted reviews of this hotel stayed on. My experience was obviously not as "shining" as theirs. The city of Lisbon has many very nice hotels. For my next visit? I would select another hotel. Not the Principe.
Very good value
We stayed for 4 days in Sept 2004. A good place to stay: close to Metro and shopping centre. The neighbourhood is quiet. The breakfast was better than average. The staff was friendly, professional and spoke some English. The room was not too small and was clean.
My only complaint (and it is pretty trivial) was that we wanted to watch the US Open tennis and the tv in the room was very small (maybe 13") and the German channel only showed games with German players (for the first few days).
Overall, very good value. 8+ out of 10.
Booked this hotel for my wife and I for 3 nights during Euro 2004 (23rd,24th and 25th June 2004),the whole city apart from this hotel seemed to be already booked up,so I had my doubts about the quality of this establishment before we arrived.Any concerns were soon dispelled upon entering the reception you imediately notice how clean everything is.The rooms are very spacious with modern furnishings and air conditioning,the bathroom is large with a shower/tub combination a toilet,bidet and wash hand bason.The staff were all very polite and could speak limited english but hey I'm in THEIR country so should not expect them to be fleunt in my language,when I can speak NONE of theirs.The whole building is kept spotlessly clean and the buffet breakfast is plenty good enough.The hotel is located between 2 metro stations each less than a 5 minute walk away so you are less than 10 minutes from just about any part of the city.There is a large shopping complex nearby that sells most things,food, gifts, clothes etc.This hotel is an absolute bargin,similar hotels are twice the price and I really can't fault anything about it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good quality 3 star hotel.
We stayed at the Hotel Comfort Principe May 29th through June 1st. Our first night in Lisbon was in a TINY hotel room, so we really appreciated the size of the Comfort Principe's room. We even had a couch to relax on, as well as a balcony. When we first arrived we were given a room on the second floor with a view of the roofs, so we asked to be moved. They quickly showed us a room on the 6th floor (smoking room) to see if we liked it. We loved it, and there was no odor of cigarettes at all.
