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, …
... interesting for me to observe and note that despite the end of Salazar’s dictatorship, the traditional values from that part of Portugal’s history still prevail. With this knowledge, it wasn't surprising to see the lack of western influence in Portugal. Even with the growing tourism of the country, especially in Lisbon, the only signs of America are in the sparsely seen McDonalds, Starbucks, and the Hard Rock Café in downtown ...
... appear from the artifacts saved and documented, that the site was part the original waterfront.
Trotted off to find accomodation, and were directed to what was termed a B&B in the old part of town. I'd be more inclined to call it a boarding house, as there were multiple floors, with about 5 to 6 rooms on each floor. Breakfast was included but no other meals available. Shame the internet access was only in the lobby, ...
... that we went to was called Comporta. We tasted five different wines here all of which were really nice. Armando took us for a quick detour to see a beautiful beach. Next stop was lunch at a local fish restaurant. Armando encouraged us to try new local foods, we agreed so he took charge of ordering for us, we had no idea what we were getting! We started with a tuna onion and tomato salad which was delicious. We then had fried squid, something which ...
... at the first three items we saw- a samosa, a spring roll and a meat pie. Somehow we never saw what the bakery is most well known for- pasteis, a type of custard tart. Although the snacks were tasty, I’m not sure they warrant special mention in a guidebook given to the pasteis.
The tower of Belem is just a short walk down the road from the monastery. It was built in 1515, on what was ...

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.
