We walked past the hotel initially, as it doesn't have a big sign out of the front. The staff at the service desk were very friendly and helpful. I did get a big shock when I saw my single room at first, as it was extremely basic. There was a small single bed, very narrow room, but an enormous bathroom. The shower was on the floor level, which meant that water escaped under the shower curtain and went all over the tiles on the floor. However, I managed to cope with that. The room was clean and I didn't spend much time in there anyway. It would have been good to have had wifi in the bedrooms, but there are areas downstairs where you can acess it. The hotel is in a great location, with dozens of restaurants just down the street. It is also within easy walking distance of the main tourist attractions by the seaport. It is also close to trams, buses and trains. The price was low and did include a basic breakfast of bread, rolls, butter, jams and tea or coffee. It cost me less than 200 euros for 4 nights' accommodation, which is pretty good value.

... found the baggage check spot for Europa and checked our baggage. We were relieved to confirm our three checked bags all were under the 23 Kg maximum. We had beat the excess baggage rule! On our flight from Rome to Lisbon, the air line declared our two back packs were over size for check in. Excess baggage charge was $216 which doubled the cost of our flight!!!! In our travels, we purchased a large suite case for 36 Euros in Coimbra ...
The metro from Lisbon Oriente was only 3 stops away and I arrived at the airport at around 20:30 knowing two things, I had to find a place to sleep & that I had to check in by 4am for my 6am flight.
It was going to be a long and exhausting evening but whatever needs to be done to save a few pennies, i want to stretch the coin as much as i can obviously.
... snowy mountains and white Portugese churches! Not to be! Still we are in one of the oldest cities in the world and definitely the oldest city in Western Europe, older than London, Paris and Rome...by several hundred years! We had history, we lacked scenery....you can't have everything!
The castle itself was pretty good, with seven towers intact and linked by ramparts that you could access. In other words we went for a nice ...
... magpies – representative of chattering women we were told. One very fine room had the royal coat of arms at the centre of the domed ceiling and the coats of arms of other royal families around it – lots of gold. The walls were a series of blue and white tiles depicting scenes of leisure activities of the time – hunting, dancing, music. Christina told us there is a saying in Portuguese today “Gold over blue” which comes from this ...
... it was Spain v. Italy, in Brazil, and for as long as I noticed, the score was tied nil all. Spain won in the end, on a penalty kick. Finals are Sunday, if you are following the event. Back at the hostel, I showered and washed the clothes I had worn, so that I wouldn't have to open my suitcase in the morning. As I hung up my wet things, on a clothesline made of string I had taken with me on the Camino Santiago 6 ...
