Hotel Mundial, Lisbon

Hotel Mundial, view from the Varanda de Lisboa Restaurant

Hotels.tv/Lisbon visited the Hotel Mundial located  in the heart of Lisbon, “Baixa Pombalina”, a few steps away from “Praça da Figueira” and “Rossio” squares. It was a surprise for us to find that from both the Roof Top Bar and the Varanda de Lisboa Restaurant one can enjoy a panoramic view of the 7 hills of Lisbon, including the St. Jorge Castle (Castelo São Jorge), the Tagus River, Convento do Carmo, Praça da Figueira, to mention a few.

The lobby, at our arrival, was very animated with people coming in and going out, in groups, alone or with kids, snapping pictures and with maps in hands to, what we guess, discover one more living quarter of this historic city or take the famous Tram Nr. 28, which starts its touristic route right in front of this hotel.

The Varanda de Lisboa Restaurant, at Hotel Mundial, offers, besides the spectacular view, a typical Portuguese cuisine menu having won the 1st prize for Portuguese Regional Dishes in 1992.

August in Lisbon – Lisbon in the streets “Com’Out Lisbon”

It’s summer, temperatures are really high and Lisbon is the perfect spot for a Vacation (and Business!). But why take a “lazy” vacation (weather on the beach or just visiting a city) or simply commute from the hotel to the office on a business meeting visit when one can have access to the best a lively city has to offer?

For one month, August, the city is going to revive, again (on what is becoming an annual tradition) squares, gardens, belvederes, bandstands and neighborhoods to accommodate, and bring to the streets, the most diverse arts and entertainment events: cinema, music, visual arts. The agenda is still on its ultimatum, but we can promise jazz, movies in the streets (in addition to the continuous show about Lisbon in the Castle of St. Jorge – Castelo de S. Jorge ), plays, classic music.
