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.

... clued up so just accepted the bread, cheese and choritzo and ordered one main to share instead of two which was well worth it anyway as it was huge.
Mamma wasn't cooking tonight so we went out to look for a nice romantic restaurant for dinner but instead we ended up with a really **** one with a really **** meal. Mine was not too bad, a massive salmon steak, but Kate ordered some german sausage which was just a frankfurter with cuts in it and ...
... imposing and awe inspiring at the same time. It is huge and the high roof is quite amazing. It is still being used for Masses but especially for weddings.
The next stop was the seaside town of Nazare, reminiscent of Surfer's Paradise or Santorini. The wide beach of almost white sand against the blue sky and houses sitting precariously on the edge of clifftop overhangs gave the immediate feeling of a holiday town - which is what this place ...
... the other end of the main street (the Rua Augusta) of the Baixa area is the 'Black Horse’ Praca do Comercio. This statue of a horse welcomes people to the district and links the river to the city.
Having walked around the older parts of the town for quite a while it was time to board the Funicular. Lisbon has a couple of large hills (it’s another city that was originally surrounded by seven hills) and the funicular is a form of ...
... He then replied, just don't tell them. Feeling a bit uncomfortable about this, I went to the receptionist and told her I would leave the money on the bar when I left. Then the old man went to chat to the receptionist. Upon his return he sat at the bar and started laughing. I then get told by the receptionist that my hotel bill will only be half the cost. This lovely old man that had entertained me for about ...
... a stewy rice dish with seafood did not disappoint! Also got to try the quintissential Lisbon drink, ginginha, a sweet cherry liquour (on the house).
Every guide book I read, 'Top 10, Lonely Planet and Rick Steves', mentions 'Tram 28' for good reason. The ride is exciting, reckless, chaotic and memorable, meandering through what seems like the seven hills of Lisbon, crossing neigbourhoods of Graca, Alfama, Baixa, Chiado, Bairo ...
