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, …

Under the large bridge in the wind, the flags on the Royal Princess flapping so hard they sounded like people clapping.

... the old wooden trams from the 30's but a great way to see the city and get up the hills!
We really enjoyed the castle as they let you climb and walk anywhere you wanted. We had fun exploring this old Moorish castle. It also had really great views of the city, as you can see from my pictures. We rode around on a couple of the other trams and metros, as they were free, and that way we could explore other parts ...
... about the idea of forking out loads of money for the nearby hotels. They were expensive!!! So I got an experience of what it might feel like to be homeless... just for a night. Sunday 17 March 2013: So I caught my early morning flight and landed in Porto, Portugal that morning and arrived at my hostel. And glad to announce that I had finally found out where Spring had been hiding all this time! Portugal was so nice and warm and I was able to get my legs out for the first time ...

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.
