Lisbon - Zenit Lisboa

Hey !

My friend and I are planning on going to Lisbon during the last week of April. We are active! We are thinking of staying at the Zenit Lisboa (on Ave 5 de Outubro). Is this a prime location?

We are going to 7 nights, any suggestions on what not miss while we are there. Any advice? precautions?

Thanx for your help. Any feedback will be helpful.

It's a brand new hotel, in Saldanha, which a is a great location 150 m away from Marques de Pombal.

From Saldanha, you have subway connection to almost everywhere, but if you like to walk, you can walk from your hotel to Downtown for some sightseeing (it should take you a couple of hours).

I suggest you have a look in other posts/reports for ideas on what to do. With 7 days, you can easily fit in a day trip to Sintra and/or Cascais.

Regarding restaurants and nightlife, Portugal doesn't have much of a spanish culture.

You'll find good restaurants not very expensive. There are a lot in Bairro Alto, for instance. I could suggest, SUL in R. do Norte, 13; or Sinal Vermelho in Rua das Gáveas, 89, but there are several there to try.

You can there have a drink in Bairro Alto, several good bars there: Maria Caxuxa, Arroz Doce, Sétimo Céu, Majong and near Bairro Alto, but not in Bairro Alto, Bicaense and Pavilhão Chinês (which is quite a place - http://www.fcsh.unl.pt/cadeiras/plataforma/foralinha/atelier/a/www/view.asp?edicao=09&artigo=355)

If you like to dress up to go out, you can go to the Santos/24 de Julho area and try Art, Kapital or BBC.

The classic of Lisbon nightlife is Lux - big lounge with a great view to the river. Amazing views of the sunrise.

Try this one: http://www.americadiamondshotel.com/hotel.php

Brand new, located in one of the main avenues you can use public transportation (underground) to reach Bairro Alto, Baixa e Alfama in 10 minutes
