... both of which I recommend: Ron Howard's Rush and Robert Redford's All is Lost On tv last night we found an english-speaking film (rare) an excellent sci-fi: Sourse Code What a hiking adventure today! Our goal was to hike to the beach, then head West along the shore to "Old Town" We were successful! It took about 2 hours, as we had to scale many cliffs, and occasionally get our feet wet (as you will see with the accompanying photos). As it was early Sunday afternoon, it was ...
... it started to rain to such an extent that we ran back to our hotel to collect our spray jackets. As we got there, the main receptionist told us that we could check in for real and make our way to our incredibly spacious apartment. As we were leaving, the rain halted, so we left our spray jackets behind. True to form, the rain came down, and 5 minutes later we had to run back to our room again to collect our spray jackets for real! This was most annoying.
We then had ...
... and loved it), and we still managed to visit a few desired sights. It just took us longer with our mint infused deviations.
Like every day spend in Lisbon, it was accompanied by wonderful food and wine! The meals were to die for and the wine was comparable in price to water!
Over all, I would rank Lisbon on my " favourite city" list. After falling in love with the city, we are both eager to discover Northern Portugal.
Today I took the Oriente Line on the double decker bus. I never would get around to doing the castle line. The Oriente Line combines older parts of Lisbon with the new and ultra modern parts which for some reason I did not know existed. The newer area sits along the Tejo River, actually some of the older part does too. These buildings are beautiful and the ...
... it's both educational and just plain beautiful. There are just a few select and exquisite works from each epoch". And it was free on Sunday! We got lost getting there, but ended up in the gardens of the museum grounds which wasn't a bad thing. There were some really beautiful things - the most amazing to me was an oriental embroidery piece of birds, about 8' x 8', the detail is awesome. Armando loved ...

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.
