i have a bit of a dilemma here and i could really use your opinions. i'll be in lisbon for 5 days (16-21 august, 2009) and I'm obviously looking for accommodation. following a pretty extensive search and after going through dozens of reviews, i face three options which meet my personal criteria (not too expensive, breakfast included, close to city centre and pretty easy access to/from airport): Olissippo Marques De Sa Hotel, Travel Park Hotel and HF Fenix Gnarde Hotel.
Under normal circumstances I would have picked the Olissippo; however, compared to the other two, its location is a bit further from the main tourist attractions (I have to say that I intend to visit Lisbon mainly by foot, and not use the public transportation unless really necessary; i love wandering around and that's what i intend to do). I wonder whether one of the other options would be better or not.
As far as the Travel park is concerned, it's the cheapest option of the three but it's the hotel that has some negative reviews (not too many, but compared to other too it has a couple of bad views).
Finally, the Fenix Garden looks as a very good option too - well placed, good reviews - but it's the most expensive of the three (again - not by much, but by enough to make me wonder about the other options).
So... what would be your pick?
