We have just enjoyed 3 lovely days here in Lisbon,and tomorrow we go our seep rate ways - Catriona to Scotland and I will make my way back to "my villa" in Spain for the remaining week or so of the holiday
Lisbon has been great...could possibly spend another of couple of days here I think. We are staying in an Airbnb flat which is located right in the centre of the city,next to ...
... came across the start of the cable car ride along the river and having a spare 40 minutes we took a ride. Well worth it.
Still lost we sighted a bus taking people to the function and followed it to the venue. Once there we had a terrific night meeting many new friends and a few old ones too. Thankfully there were buses to take us home.
Overall a great day
... it ethically slaughtered, have it cooked and eat away. We opted for less messy but no doubt equally delicious grilled sea bass/sole with a spinach purée and baked potatoes and washed down by a great local house white.
The next day we visited Belem, a riverfront suburb about 6km west of Lisbon centre. It's famous for a couple of things. One is a patisserie called Patisserie de Belem thats been operating since 1837. The Lonely Planet reckons ...
... 5.45 am, and we were ready to go and get our bus in 25 minutes. Unfortunately the bus we wanted didn't start until 7am, so se sat enjoying the cool fresh air for 40 minutes until it turned up. By 7.20am we were in our hotel and by 7.30am we were in our beds as they had a room available - what a bonus after a 10 hour flight! In the afternoon we had a wander down to the city centre then sat down at the sea in the sunshine ...

I think I could live in Portugal. The people are lovely, it has summer 8 months a year and beautiful coast line. Could definitely see myself living there for a period of time.
On the way home from the trip we stopped in at the Roca Cape, which is the Western most point in the whole of Europe. It’s beautiful but my word it was windy. I was happy to jump over ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Miraparque Lisbon
Had a great time
just returned after 3 days in lisbon watching liverpool..this hotel was 1st class, from the bar to the bedrooms everything was spotlessly clean, nothing was too much trouble to any of the staff...wonderful location, other hotels had a load of roadworks going on, not this one, just off the main avenue+overlooking the park, if ever in lisbon would return to the miraparque!!!!
THis is a basic hotel, with basic rooms, but it is inexpensive and located steps away from a subway station so it works out well for exporing the city if you don't need to be right downtown.
If you are looking for more than a very basic room with some luxury look elsewhere. But if you just need a clean workable place which is inexpensive this place will work...
This is a budget hotel, which isn't spectacular, but is certainly value for money. The location is fine, very close to the bus link from the airport, close to other public transport links and overlooking a very lovely park.
Old fashioned formality
just spent three nights there. enjoyed our stay. staff pleasant helpful and english speaking. breakfast good, nice view, very clean, beds firm but after all that walking it doesnt matter. wear solid shoes, the pavements are awful.
6 nights in Lisboa
We stayed here during a recent trip to Lisbon. It was part of a very inexpensive package purchased on Expedia but I think it is a modestly priced hotel. Located across from Edward VII Park, street side rooms had nice views. The hotel is well-located and is near two metro stops. The rooms are adequate in size, the beds comfortable, the bathroom OK. Certainly not the Ritz but a nice play to stay. Lisbon is a great city.
What a Dump
Do not stay here. Old beat hotel, smells and out dated. Our room had linnens at least 20 years old and smelled like smoke and god knows what else. Smug service from the front desk. We booked through Expedia for 4 nights. Had enough after suffering through two. No refund offered from the hotel or Expedia for the other two nights. Location is weak, breakfast is fair. Go some where else.
A reasonable hotel which definitely wasn't worth the five star rating that other users seem to have given it. It had a great location next to the park and the walk into the town was lovely. However the room we stayed in had rather a dated feel and both it and the supposed double bed were tiny. All in all not bad but not great either....
Quiet, Great Location
excellent location by Edward VII park and easy walk down to river; also very near metro and AeroBus #91, very quiet; very good breakfast buffet too.
Phone calls were a bit expensive, but they can be made cheaply not too far away at Rossio Square (in the internet cafe).
Good basic and friendly hotel
We stayed at the Miraparque hotel for three nights, and found it good value for money. The location is good, as it is next to a metro station that gets you into the centre of town in about 10 minutes, or it is possible to walk into town in about half an hour. The hotel is in a quiet location, which is good when you want to sleep, but means that there are very few restaurants nearby. The hotel restaurant is good, if basic, and quite reasonable prices.
A Great Hotel and Staff!
I have visited Lisbon twice the passed year and have stayed at this hotel. The location across from the Edward VII Park puts you on a lovely secluded street. Don't think you location is out of the way it is the best..close to the shops and the Marques de Pombal where you can pick up various bus tours. The staff is terrific...after my first stay I sent them a box of Godiva chocolate in appreciation for their attention which they give to all their guests( I'm a Grandmother so it wasn't that I was a hot number). As a former airline employee now retired I've stayed in many properties but this by far was the nicest. If you tour operator doesn't have it listed ask..you will love it!
