Olá Portugal!

Portugal is a country that is steeped in history and has a rich culture, therefore making it a destination I’ve wanted to visit for quite some time. I finally got the chance to get a glimpse of this beautiful country last September, when I went there for a long weekend, and it is definitely a place that I would like to visit in the future, in more detail.

I flew to Lisbon with TAP Portugal, the national airline, and had quite a pleasant flight experience. TAP Portugal seems to be quite a reliable company. Just make sure you buy your tickets well in advance to benefit from cheaper rates.

The hotel I stayed at is the Hotel Sete Colinas, located at Avenida Almirante Reis, 67. It costs about 20 Euros to get to this hotel by taxi from the airport. This is a decent hotel that provides the bare essentials that every traveler expects: very clean rooms, good service, personable staff and the best of all, its superb location.



The metro station, Anjos, is right at the hotel’s doorstep, but you can also easily reach the main city centre in 5 minutes by foot. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone seeking simple, clean accommodation at an affordable price. You can check out the hotel’s website for more information:

I’ll be back with interesting information on Lisbon sightseeing in my next post!
