Lisbon is marvellous! We fell in love with this gorgeous city at first sight!
The same, unfortunately, cannot be said about Flamingo. When we first saw our room in this hotel ! was about to burst into tears.
It was our honeymoon first destination and the whole trip was planned at the travel agency. And that usually makes you expect the hotels of the highest rank to stay at. Flamingo was not one of them.
The room seemed a cell, or rather a cellar, being so small that our heavy suitcases prepared for a long trip were about to be place outside on a small balcoby (which, somehow, we never used). If the room was small, the bathroom was tiny: when one of us entered it (for there was no room for both), the door could not be closed. Thanks God we could do without privacy! And to add to the climax of the whole story the floor, which was covered by the carpet, was wet from one of the sides of the bed. And I still have not mentioned the breakfasts that were a morningmare!
But not everything was so hopeless. The city has such an outstanding splendour that we spent little time in our grey Flamingo cell. The staff were polite and the hotel location was really central and convenient (close to the Marques de Pombal metro).
But if you have a chance to choose, which we were deprived of this time, there are a lot of other hotels right about the corner. I do not think the difference of the prices is going to shock you, hoping still that the difference of the quality will.
Have a nice stay in Lisbon!
