Lisbon is beautiful!
Abby, my friend from my freshman year at UT and I met at the Lisbon airport (me with baggage in hand, Abby, not so much.. :( ) and have had a good two days so far!
We are having a 9 year reunion in Portugal, Spain, and parts of Italy.
Abby's bags came this morning... and we headed out soon after that …
Had a beautiful first day in Lisbon. First, awoke with the sun desperately trying to peek through beautiful dark clouds. Our hotel room has a window that overlooks the river and we had quite the show this morning.
Breakfast at the hotel and then we headed down to the port to take a tram to Jeramias Monastery. Paul thought it was kinda "dead"--unlike some ...
... tour guide had recommended a Bacalhau dish in a white sauce, one of the 1000 Salted Cod recipes of Portugal. We found a pub and I had Piri Piri chicken, not like nandos but a chilli infused oil to put over the roasted chicken. The night came in with such a cold change that the staff were offering me a blanket to keep me warm outside, particularly as I had completely wrapped myself in my sarong.
... the Spanish one started and of course during that time the Jewish population expanded greatly with many leaving Spain for Portugal. Back to the bones and skulls – thought provoking - as it was meant to be.
Left the old town, had a quick drive around the outer part of the wall and headed back to Lisbon. This time we entered Lisbon from a different direction. The way out was over the bridge that looks like the San Francisco ...

The waterfront is newly renovated. It includes a stretch of concrete beach that disappears into the ocean. It's an awesome place to lounge around and enjoy the waves. The hilly scenery across the water reminds us of North Vancouver. Lying ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Residencial Florescente Lisbon
Perfect for Lisbon!
Florescente is the perfect base from which to see beautiful Lisbon. My boyfriend and I stayed there twice for three nights each time in August 2003. It was perfectly clean, bright, airy, colourful and comfortable.
The staff were very helpful, professional and generally pretty friendly despite the occasional display of surliness. The wide variety of rooms makes the place suitable for people on all budgets and the location is perfect! I would highly recommend this pensione.
I read the reviews on Florescente and booked it for six nights in october. The reviews are right, it's a wonderful place, very well situated in the middle of everything. We had a room on the first floor with the window facing the street - the street noise didn't disturb us.
Excellent value for a capital city
Low cost and excellent value hotel which is very well situated in the tourist area and close to many restaurants. Bedrooms are on the small side but are clean. Breakfast room is smart and breakfast itself good although I didn't like the coffee. Staff are friendly enough but don't seem to speak English. I would certainly use this hotel again.
What a FABULOUS & quaint place to stay!
This was the cutest most wonderful place I've ever stayed! Found the reviews on TripAdvisor.com, knew nothing about Portugal or where to stay, and this place turned out to be a DIAMOND in the Rough! It's on a quaint cobblestone road, where no cars can pass. There is a breakfast included in the price --we were there 9/1-9/3 and it was 60 Euro/night. It was such a great value...nice room, great private bath and terrific A/C! Awesome location and great places to eat right there on the same street as hotel. If you turn right out of hotel, eat at Bourjardin (i think that's what it's called) it was fabulous! They specialize in chicken, but I'm a vegetarian, and they had great choices for me too! LOVED IT and when I go back, I won't look anyplace else. This is where I'll stay!
Great little quaint hotel!
This hotel was so cute, I would stay here again in a heartbeat! The rooms and the bathrooms were VERY clean and spacious and I loved the cute little verandas in each room!! Breakfast was good as well and the staff was very friendly and accomadating. The residencial was in a terrific location!!
Great location, fine value
This is a fine value at a wonderful downtown location. I wouldn't look any further if you are seeking clean, affordable rooms within a moments walk of all major downtown locations. Be warned: our room and bed were SMALL; though it was located on on the quiet side of the building and we had virtually no extraneous noise. Breakfast was sufficient.
Additionally, we advise looking beyond the restaurants on that street for authentic Portuguese fare. We ate close to the hotel and found fried meats and fish that were over salted. If you can find "Resto", high up on the hill in the Alfama, you'll be greatly rewared! Enjoy Lisbon!
We had a new room on the 6th floor with a view of the castello.Paid 60 euros a night at the end of May2003. In the US this room would cost $200 a night. Probably should have a 3 star rating.
Stayed Sept / Oct 2002.SO glad I found this little hotel. Amazing value considering it's only rated 2 star. Couldn't get anything more central, being in a pedestrianised zone right beside Rossio Sq., and Restauradores Sq. and 10mins from Sta Apollonia Station. Rooms not spacious but for £25 per night in a capital city, superb value. Satellite TV and hair dryers very useful and excellent A/C! Looks a bit run down from the outside and they need a lift from Reception to 1st Floor where the lift actually starts! Heavy bags are awkward on the stairs. Need to eat? Restaurants all along the street outside. All equally good and reasonably priced. Good brekkie in the hotel too which is unusual for Portugal.Internet facility in the NW corner of Rossio Sq. Try to go when it opens at 0800 or after 6pm, as it's queueing at most other times. Not surprising as it's VERY cheap to use there and not limited.
Good choice of pensao / residencial
We stayed there in Sept. 2002
Most rooms have been renovated recently; however the staircase and outside of the house still need work. So don't get shocked at first sight.
Some rooms are smaller ones, so ask to see a choice before booking.
The place is very centrally located, but quite quiet for being in the center of town.
We will go back there and can recommend it for people trying to find a cheap but decent place to stay.
Great place--Residencial Florescente, Lisbon
We stayed at Residencial Florescente in October 2002. The hotel was clean; excellent breakfast included. Very decent size room and a huge recently renovated bathroom--by any hotel standards. Comfortable new beds. Very helpful concierge. Excellent central location (however, if you mind street noise, ask for a room facing back). Very-very nice place.
