Hotel Princesa Centro Lisboa

Hotel Princesa Centro Lisbon

The Hotel Princesa Centro Lisboa (formerly the Residencial Princesa Hotel) on Rua Gomes Freira is a low-budget accommodation option not far from the center of Lisbon.

Residencial Princesa Lisbon

The Hotel Princesa Centro is something of a mixed bag: helpful staff, a clean and pleasant breakfast area and certainly cheap. On the downside the rooms have seen better days, the doors may not fully open, the fire escape door might not have a key (climb out the window) and you could, if very unlucky, be sharing your 4th floor corridor with noisy, nay downright demented, Italian students.

Residencial Princesa Lisbon

Still there's wireless internet - intermittent at best - you are right on the #790 bus route to Rossio and Cais do Sodre and only 10 minutes walk from Anjos subway station.

Not a place to bring the wife and kids but more than adequate for cheap digs in Lisbon.

Lisbon Graffiti

Lisbon Graffiti

Much of downtown Lisbon is daubed in graffiti, especially the nightlife and bar area of Bairro Alto.

Lisbon Graffiti

More upscale areas such as Belem or Marques de Pombal escape fairly unscathed but Rossio, Alfama, Graca and Cais do Sodre are pretty much covered by the tag artist with his aerosol.

Lisbon Graffiti

Street art or a bloody mess, we'd like to hear your comments.
