Lisboa has become our favourite citytrip destination, after we've been a number of times to Barcelona. To escape the dark days at the end of the year we decided to fly to Lisboa.
The Evidencia Astoria Creative Hotel came with a package deal my wife found, the deal included airline tickets and was absolutely affordable. Ofcourse we were warned by the reviews on Tripadvisor but it did not scare us.
Let's be serious the roomrate compared to the minus' should hold one from complaining.
The good stuff, extremely good bed and good choice breakfast buffet plus friendly staff, free wifi, and at very short walking from Pombal Square, the metro takes you from there in no time to the old centre, and many bus-lines stop on or about the square, including the airport bus.
Rather less important things were not ok, there was no heating in the bathroom, no safe at the room, limited storage capacity (we kept some items in our suitcase) a lamp in the room did not work and after we asked reception it still didn't (must have been more than the bulb).
After we talked to reception a broken lightbulk was replaced just outside our room, but electricity in Portugal must be extremely expensive because it was overall a dark place this hotel. We see no reason why we should not go back to this hotel. And dear reader again Lisboa is a great place to stay. We were lucky too, at the Corte Ingles the winter sales had started with discounts upto 60% on top of that foreigners can get a day-pass at the infopoint in the shop which entitles you to another 10% discount of all purchases. We nearly had to buy an extra suitcase :) The number of restaurants in Lisboa is very high we enjoyed a wonderfull Old to New at www.restaurante-olivier.com while the day before we had a perfect dinner at www.restaurante560.com Lisboa here we come (again).
