We spent our second day in Lisboa exploring the neighborhoods and visiting cathedrals. The Portuguese tiles are beautiful and provide infinite inspiration for Zentangle patterns! The food is wonderful - so far all meals have been eaten outside! I understand now why so much time is spent talking about what you eat when you travel - not only is the …
... the Alfama, which is full of narrow passages and cobbled streets before eventually returning to the ship. Erica and I took refuge in the shade while others burned themselves to a crisp. We did cool off a few times in the pool which was lovely and refreshing.Some of our fellow passengers are the colour of mahogany. Although we were the first ship into Lisbon this morning we were not the first to leave. Ventura took leave first to a cacophony of noise from ...
... Then I got it! Ten years ago someone had the brilliant idea of using sardines as symbols for the feasts in Lisbon and they were so successful that they have remained ever since. Now an exhibition at the Millenium Art Gallery (rua Augusta - Baixa) is celebrating the most interesting ones. A sardinha was so successful that it sparked the creativity of famous designers from Portugal and from abroad, and every year ...
This weekend I checked out Lisbon, Portugal. Located on the far west coast of the Iberian Peninsula, it was a very beautiful city. With limited time, we spent half of our time site seeing, and the other half just kind of lounging around. Honestly, just lounging around is the more Iberian way to do things anyways. We were greeted into the city by the giant Christ the Redeemer statue, overlooking the Tejo River. Although this is not the Christ the Redeemer statue, it ...
... traditional dinner.
We went to a really cool old castle that held one of Leonardo Da Vinci's inventions. The invention was something made for the castle that showed an image of the entire city of Lisbon; like a projector or binoculars, but the first one ever made. Unfortunately, we went to the room that showed it 15 minutes after the closing time so we didn't get to see it. The rest of our time in Lisbon we just ...

Historical Traveler Reviews VIP Executive Suites Eden Lisbon
The best room that we could have asked for at this prince range, it is impossbile to find a room like this for this price in Paris or London. It was practically a 1bdr. apartment. The hotel is doors down from the train station, right across from the bus stops and a 10min walk to the Electrico. I stayed here for 5 nights, the suite was huge for Eroupe standards (full sized tiled bathroom +kitchenette:dishwasher, fridge, toaster, cooking range, microwave, utensils and glassware!) Kitchen is very nice to have when the stay is long! This hotel was great value. The room was relatively quiet and clean (but not spotless: the bathroom floors were not cleaned everyday and there were some crusty stains on the blankets and carpet-but sheets and towels were very clean). The staff all spoke english.
I stayed at the VIP Eden in late August and had a horrible expericence that prompted me to become a member of this site just to warn others. On the third day of my stay, my hotel room was burglarized in the afternoon while my friend and I were out sightseeing. We returned to the hotel at around 7:30pm to find our clothes all over the floor, my luggage slashed open (because it had been locked) and my friend's luggage missing altogether. The room was locked when we got back and did not show any signs of forced entry. I called the front desk immediately, the woman sounded sympathetic but said there was nothing she could do and there was no security guard I could talk to. She said the hotel can check the key card lock and see who entered the room at what time but not until the next day and recommened we file a report with the police.
VIP Eden Aparthotel - Lisbon - what a great gem in the heart of Lisbon.
Great gem in the heart of Lisbon. More than sadequete kitchen, good batroom and very good lounge/dining space
Highly recommend - will be back
Quite pleased with location and rate
I stayed at this hotel in February 2004. The staff was excellent and they upgraded me to a one bedroom apartment. It was incredibly great in terms of location to visit Lisbon and I had a nice view over the city (although the windows are small). Having a kitchen was excellent. The rooms are pretty utilitarian otherwise, but given the wonderful location and the gracious staff and the space with a kitchen, it is an extremely comfortable place to stay on a visit to Lisbon.
My wife and I made reservations through Hotelclub.com for 2 weekend nights at the VIP Eden in Lisbon for May 22 and 23, 2004. The cost was 89 euros per night. This hotel is pretty new, a recently remodeled theater. We read here that the 9th floor rooms had balconies but none were available, so our room was on the 3rd floor which gave us a view over the tropical rooftop garden that fronts onto the plaza and street.
This hotel looks very grand from the outside but more modest inside.
This hotel is a great stay at a very reasonable price. My room was very roomy and very clean. Staff is very helpful and most speak very good english. The view from the terrace gives you a taste of the hustle and bustle of one of Lisbon's busiest streets while still having a clear view of the Castelo de Sao Jorge. Lots of great restaurants just across the stret including one of the best hole-in-the-wall ginginha spots "Eduardinho". As well, the tourism office is right next door. As for the breakfast, it's convenient, but at 5 euros I'd hit one of the little cafes in the baixa area like the artsy "A Brasileira" for a little more variety and patio ambience.
We were introduced to the VIP Eden by our Lisbon guide. What a gem! We had a studio which had a double bed, kitchen table with two chairs, and upholstered chair all in one room. There was a small kitchen area with stove, refrigerator and sink. The room had a full bathroom including tub. Since we were on the 9th floor we also had a balcony with a table and a couple of rosin chairs as this is the only floor where the rooms have balconies.
