Rob and I started the day by grabbing a wonderful breakfast at our hotel Zenit Lisboa at floor 00 and although we had to swallow the 20 Euro price tag, the breakfast was indeed "Rich". Breakfast included eggs, bacon, sausages, egg/potatoe/onion omelette, deli meats and cheeses, salmon locks, muffins, croissants, a variety of breads, …
... is thrown around very loosely. We didn't actually find out what a true tapa was until days later in Madrid. Without getting hung up on the words, this is what we experienced in these unique bars. Firstly we chose a less populated bar to be able to understand the concept of how to eat and order pincho/pintxos (spelt differently depending if you're Spanish or speak the local language of Basque). Each bar has a wide variety of about 30 different plates of hot and cold, Spanish ...
... trying to do the same. Merriment was had by all and The Grande let the rest know that we were "australiano" before his headwear was thieved by dutch/spanish wenches. Fortunately, it was recovered and attention turned to the cervesa-nator who wrangled with cervesas the size of his head, sometimes winning sometimes not. These were the nights, good music and good people dancing til the wee hours of the morning. The days on the other hand ...
... of the different regions we went through is very evident;
3. big similarity between the Spanish and French languages. If you knew one then the other would be quite easy to learn – certainly the basics of it;
4. Their artists and architects appear to be undervalued compared to the Italians and French;
5. A lot of investment has gone into their infrastructure and renewably energy production (solar energy and wind turbines).
We arrive back at the Hotel to find most of the conference guests have arrived. Lots of old faces (you can define old however you want and you'd be right) and some new. Our first function was cocktails and canapés at the pharmacy museum. (There appears to be a museum for everything in Portugal.) After the obligatory boring speeches and looking at old pharmacy paraphernalia we tried some local Portuguese wines and of course ports. They do cheese pretty well too! Some ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Zenit Lisboa Lisbon
Hôtel excellent !
Nous sommes descendus dans cet hôtel pour un week-end à Lisbonne, nous étions invités à un mariage et cet hôtel nous avait été recommandé. C'était génial, surtout vu son prix. Tout nouveau, avec une décoration moderne, une télé écran plat dans la chambre etc. On nous a accidentellement donné la chambre avec un accès handicapé donc elle était encore plus grande que les autres. La situation était bonne car l'hôtel est situé dans un quartier résidentiel, donc c'est plus calme, mais à quelques stations de métro du centre-ville. Il y a cependant pas mal de choses à faire dans le coin, comme les boutiques, les centres commerciaux etc. J'étais vraiment contente de mon séjour là-bas et je conseillerais cet hôtel à tous.
Hautement recommandé !
C'est un super hôtel au centre de Lisbonne proche du métro et des autres moyens de transports. Je n'ai payé que 98 euros par nuit ! Le petit déjeuner est assez bon. Tout dans cet hôtel est parfait, surtout à si bon marché ! Hautement recommandé !
Recently stayed at the Zenit Lisboa (Oct 5-9, 2006) and have to say that this was a really good value. The hotel is one block from the Saldanha Metro stop, which is two stops from the Marques do Pombal stop where you can transfer Metro lines or catch many of the main bus lines. My travelmate discovered that the local bus (Line 12) took us through local neighborhoods to the Feira das Ladros (the Tues/Sat flea market) in about 15 minutes, much more convenient than the conventional Metro then Tram 28 tourist route that most people take.
Great Hotel in the centre of Lisbon near metro and other transports.
I payed only 98 euros per night! Quite good breakfast. Everything is perfect in this Hotel especially for the small price! Highly recommended!
We stayed at this hotel for a weekend in Lisbon, we were invited to a wedding and someone suggested this hotel. It was great, especially for its price. Brand new, modern decoration, flat screen in the room etc. We also accidentally for the room with the handicap access so it was even larger than the other ones. The location is good because it is a residential area, so quieter but only a few stops from the downtown area. At the same time, there were also things to do around there, such as shops, malls etc. I was really happy we stayed there and I would recommended to anyone.
Dieses Hotel war fantastisch mit seinen modernen Zimmern und den neumodischen Einrichtungen, wie dem Flachbildschirmfernseher. Das Zimmer und Bad waren groß. Das Hotelpersonal war sehr hilfsbereit und äußerst freundlich.
