taxi Quarteira to Loule and hotel in Lisboa

What would be the cost of a taxi from Quarteira to train station in Loule. . There are 4 of us wanting to travel to Lisboa to spend day and overnight. (So little time alas) .... Any recommendation of a hotel close to train station? Also we would like to go to a Fado evening.

appreciate suggestions you might have .... many thanks ....

Diane

It will be around 10 euro for a one way.

What kind of hotel are you looking for in Lisbon? Near Oriente train station there's a new Ibis hotel tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g189158-i203-k7119…

For fado:

Tasca do Chico (Alfama)

Rua dos dos Remédios 83

The Dallas Restaurant, (situated on the main road through Quarteira, opposite bus station), hosts a Fado every Saturday evening (Out Of Season not sure).

Certainly our visit in May 2013 proved to be an interesting experience with an insight into the Classical side of Portuguese Culture.

Oriente station is several miles from the city centre, although it does have a metro connection.

The trains also stop at Lisbon Entrecampos station which is closer to the centre. There are a number of hotels in that area as it is mainly a business district. I often stay at the IBIS Saldanha, which is about 15 minutes walk or two stops on the metro. There are others closer.

Search Lisbon Campo Pequeno or Lisbon Saldanha for choices.

There is the recently opened IBIS Parque de Nações hotel about three blocks from Lisbon Gare Oriente Station and the recently opened Tryp Hotel at Lisbon Airport itself.

Near to Campo Pequeno, is Entrecampos station. We often stay at the VIP Zurch Hotel when going up to Lisbon. It is 3 minutes walk from the Station. One can take the Metro or taxi into the Baixa Area.

For Fado, have a look at the following, all of which recently jointly advertised in the February 2014 edition of the easyjet.com flight magazine promoting the heritage of Fado:

www.cafeluso.pt

www.timpanas.pt

www.adegamachado.pt

I haven't been back to the Adega Machado for over 40 years,(used to ge with my folks) although I've walked past it often. Must go back. However, it has recently been refurbished and it is one of the traditional fado centres in the Bairro Alto.

And as a little extra here's a video of Amalia performing at Adega do Machado in 1989.....
