... and it has saved me from loads of sore throats. It will double as a scarf if needed.
12 - Berghaus Tee - Nothing special to it, just a sports/outdoors tee, soft to the touch, quick dry.

... Lisbon, so I will just conclude with some overall comments and thoughts. First of all, the overnight train from Madrid to Lisbon was especially shoddy. For those of you who have experienced European train travel, this was certainly ...
Had one last look around Prauge yesterday before we left for Portugal. The metro was closed due to repair so we did not get to do as much walking around as we wanted because it took us twice as long to get back to the dorm. But it was getting quite hot so it was not so heartbreaking. I was sad to go but excited to move on to my next adventure. Got to the ...
In 1998 the World Expo was in Lisbon, and a whole new part of the city was born, still remains, and is growing all the time. None of this existed before the Expo. I guess it was old factories and useless buildings and empty lots that used to line this whole part of the river shore. They decided to vamp things up a bit when people from other countries decided to stop by, and now it's a ...
... stop was atop a lovely memorial park dedicated to the visit by Queen Elizabeth – a beautifully kept garden with views down to Lisbon city looking over the Tagus River.
We loved Estoril and were given time on our own to wander. We strolled along the boardwalk and enjoyed people watching – hundreds or probably thousands on the beaches as it is summer holiday time. The sea looked very inviting, but ...

A Good Hotel in Lisbon
Very good hotel. Not much character perhaps but great staff comfortable very clean rooms free internet good breakfast good location. Not too expensive. Will go back.
We booked this Hotel based on the two earlier reviews and are not sorry. Great find. Good standard, clean and very friendly service. Well located, within waking distance of centre and a metro very close by for those who prefer not to walk. Lisbon was lovely enjoyed the whole experience. Loved the transport system very reasonable and easy to get around - one day pass for all public transports only 3.30 covers all. Tram 15e to Belem - Get off at stop after Belem and then stroll back. Enjoyed Belem and those famous custard tarts. Ate in a nice little restraunt a few door away from the famous pastries shop. Very good value. Tram 28 took us up hills to St Georges Castle lovely views over the city and Sintra is a must what a lovely little place, fab to sit outside Cafe Paris and watch all the tourists. The trip on bus 434 is good and palace nice to see. Will go back and will stay at M De P Hotel again. As last review said - take taxi to airport - we took one from rank just outside hotel and it was E8. for the trip.
Very good hotel
very good hotel. nice and clean room with all comfort.very good breakfast.
I booked this hotel based on the one review on Tripadvisor and the photographs on the hotel's Website. It was the best decision ever. My mother, two aunts and I stayed at the hotel for 10 days. It was a great hit with my family - these ladies are very fussy when it comes to cleanliness!!!!! The hotel is very clean and modern. The sheets, towels, and shower curtains were changed every day. I stayed in a twin room which is not very big but just the right size with good closets and drawer space for two. The staff is top notch - very friendly yet professional. They were helpful with booking restaurants, recommending good places to eat, and calling taxis. The bar and restaurant are great - we dined in their restaurant on two occasions, and we always liked to have a drink in the bar at the end of the day. The breakfast servings are typical - breads, jams, cheese, ham, cereals, fruit, eggs, bacon, sausages, however, the coffee is really excellent - try a double espresso with hot milk!! As to location - perfect - close to the Metro stop called Marques do Pombal. The Metro system is very efficient. There is heavy traffic on the Avenue outside the hotel but not a sound gets through the windows. I was able to get a little off the price of the hotel through toursforyou.com - a tour group I used for a day trip to Obidos etc. Lisbon is a terrific place and the people are very friendly, and the Marques is just like Lisboa!!!
Very nice "unknown" hotel
My parents, myself, and son (2 1/2 years old) stayed at this hotel for 3 days 2 nights. The rooms were modern, nicely furnished and very clean. I found in my hotel research that most hotels do not allow 3 adults in the room or will charge for the extra person. Marques De Pombal did not charge us extra for a 3rd adult in the room and was very accomodating. We got to the hotel around 10am and they allowed us to check in early. The hotel is centrally located and has a subway stop in front of the hotel. Cab rides to sites in Lisbon were very inexpensive (5-7 euros). The breakfast was included with the room price and they had a nice assortment of both hot and cold breakfast foods. I definitely recommend this hotel.
