... Emma. It is so easy to keep in touch using the ship's satellite system although quite expensive. We were advised by the Bridge that we would pass by Gibraltar at about 3pm and true enough, almost on the dot of 3 the 'Rock' was visible in the haze but we were sailing much closer to the north coast of Africa than to Gibraltar itself. We took part in the afternoon dance class and the dance teachers are extremely good. Later that evening we met up with Jo and ...
... any of our questions, I do not think he even fully understood our flight story but he did dutifully start filling out a complaint form with us. About 20 minutes into the form he looked at our flight information again and stopped.
"You flew with SATA airlines?" he asked.
"No, we were supposed to but we missed that flight so we flew with USAIR to Italy," Jason explained.
"Which airline did ...

I then walked toward the waterfront which is on the TEJO RIVER. The river was very clear and a few boats lined the area. There was a cruise ship also.
I went back to the hotel and rested a while. I had walked so much, got lost about ten times, but finally found someone that pointed me in the direction of the hotel. My feet were killing me. ...
... a specific restaurant as recommended in the Lonely Planet Guide; but we got railroaded on route. We had a reasonable idea of where the place was but we weren't totally sure, we think we almost did make it, but just as we were about to make a turn up a laneway, we were confronted by a spruiker who promised us the best Fado in town with a good meal. We tried to politely escape his sales pitch, but he was good at ...
... few to survive a major earthquake in 1755. Its still populated by locals, evident by the hung laundry and small portraits of resident elders along its alleyways. For lunch, we settled in at a homey patio restaurant outside of the main tourist area. It was absolutely perfect - tasty olives, grilled cod & potatoes, cold crisp beer.

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.
