... he’ll be employed for very much longer.
After Lisbon we moved along the wild, beautiful, windy coast as it’s known, for a very good reason it is very bracing, We’d seen some of the coastline with Sean and Pat in the Burkemobil but now on our own again (ahh) after a great weekend! we moved further along, stopping a couple of nights in Ericeiras before settling in Peniche. With its white sandy dunes and turquoise sea, Peniche is popular ...
Tony and I were part of the Commuter experience in Portugal this morning. The sun was just coming over the hill as we headed to the Airport to pick up Mike and Debbie. The Rattler was covered with dew, each drop glistening in the sunshine. It is 7:30. It is a gorgeous morning.
Our timing was perfect. Tony pulled into a parking spot, I ran in to our meeting point at the airport and there they were, two ...
... about a 30 minute walk into downtown Lisbon, there is a bus and tram stop right outside the port terminal. We hopped on the first tram that came our way and within minutes we were in Belem admiring the Mosteiro dos Jeronimo, a monastery and church where Vasco da Gama (a Portuguese explorer that every South African student is familiar with) is entombed.

... there was a Fado show and dinner at the hotel in a few days (which I ended up booking). The staff at a 5 star hotel are amazing. They helped with everything and were happy to put it on my bill! In the following days I went on a river cruse, saw several Fado shows, took a bus tour, went to the Fado museum and the aquarium. Here is my original post which covers several days.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Turim Lisbon
Wir waren im April 2006 für zwei Nächte im Hotel Turim, vor einer Kreuzfahrt. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und wir hatten ein geräumiges Zimmer. Die Betten waren okay und das Zimmer ruhig. Gefallen hat mir vor allem das Personal an der Rezeption, das sehr hilfsbereit war. Das Frühstück war okay. Ich hatte per Direktanruf im Hotel einen besseren Preis für das Zimmer bekommen als auf der Webseite. Das Hotel liegt in der Nähe der Metro, die günstig und leicht benutzbar ist. Wenn Sie sich eine Tageskarte kaufen, dann können Sie damit auch die Straßenbahn und die Busse benutzen. Sie ist ihr Geld wert. Vorsicht aber vor den Taxifahrern am Flughafen. Wir hatten einen der "bösen", der versucht hat, uns den doppelten Preis abzuknöpfen und sich weigerte, sein Taxameter einzuschalten. Dieser lag versteckt unter einem Handtuch auf dem Beifahrersitz. Im Flughafen befindet sich ein Schalter, wo man Taxis für einen festen Preis buchen kann, aber draußen sind sie in der Regel günstiger. Aber checken Sie erst die Preise am Schalter.
We were delighted with this gem
We booked this Hotel for 3 nights in April and could not have been happier with our stay there. We had been in Lisbon 40 years before and it was wonderful to return. Room was superb and bed so comfortable. Breakfast was first class and the service in the dining room, at reception and of the cleaning staff could not be improved on. However, we made the mistake of not having dinner in the Hotel as the Restaurant and Menu looked so inviting. We hope that we will go back to the Turim.
Traveller from Edinburgh, Scotland
We were in the hotel Turim Lisbon during a very warm August.
I recently stayed in Lisbon for 8 nights. I stayed at the Turim Hotel. I booked the hotel online, based mostly on reviews I read online. I really enjoyed my stay in Lisbon and the Turim was exactly the type of hotel I was looking for.
We stayed at the Hotel Turim for two nights pre cruise in April 2006.
A nice sleepover
Needed a nice and comfy place to stay a night with my wife a kid after a 400 km car trip before returning home.
Room was clean and very satisfying. Quiet neighbourhood and parking for my rented car.
The continental breakfast was enough and very satisfactory.
Price was OK for one night.
Good hotel in quiet neighbourhood
I recently spent a weekend in lisbon at the turim europa hotel. I bought the trip on expedia. The hotel was not listed but I had a good feeling and I was right. It's near Marques de Pombla Square, close to the metro and 100mt away from the bus stop that goes to the airport (no 44 or 45). The Hotel is really nice and very clean, the room are small with no place to sit but you've all in it. The staff at the reception is very helpful especially the lady. The breakfast was quite good but not to "big".Nearby you have some really good resturant. I would go there again, five minutes metro and you're everywhere!!
Nice cozy little place
Stayed there for two nights in Sep 2005. The hotel is very nice and clean with excellent furniture. Great location, friendly service. Highly recommend to everyone.
