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.

0116 Eat your Heart out, Madrid… (Por 005, 08A -029)
Lisbon, February 23, 2008
Day 086: 6 hours, 12.7—total: 31.3
As soon as my bus reaches the magnificent suspension bridge that crosses the bay to Lisbon, I know that I’m on my way to an extraordinary city… From the bridge I got a great panoramic view of the steep hills with beautiful orange tiled rooftops crammed in between. And it seems that around ...
... after dinner show was particularly good tonight. We had a Welsh comedian, Mike Doyle, who had a world class tenor's voice. He was exceptional, finishing his show with the song usually sung by the well known Welsh tenor Pavarotti “Jones” (his joke not mine !) - Nessum Dorma. It put chills up your spine he was so good. He was a good comedian too – sticking it up the Yanks mercilessly and having a go at the Aussies too. ...
... the Portugese maritime explorers, such Vasco de Gama and Ferdinand Magellan, on the river at Belem (a must do day trip from the city centre). It is huge sandstone edifice, shaped like the prow of a ship, jutting out to the water. Along each side are carved the images of the explorers and their patron kings and queens, lead at the front by Henry the Navigator, If you are interested you can Google Padrao dos Descobrimentos. The viewpoint from the top ...
... and historic buildings. We are staying in the centre, at a hostel above a train station. (Yes, sister, it is quiet. Even though we are one storey above the trains, from the moment you open the door to the hostel, it is quiet and far removed from busyness outside.)
... from having such a jam packed weekend. We really didn't break much from the sightseeing. The bust arrived in Madrid this morning at 5:30am, and I was back to my apartment in Alcala by 7:30am. Class this morning at 10am was tough, but I snagged about an hour of sleep! Most importantly I left the weekend with no regrets, feel like I saw every thing I wanted to in Lisbon, and am utterly amazed at what must be one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
