Pension Viriato Rooms
From the airport I reached the metro station Martim Moniz, decorated with marble mosaics with pilgrims
And at the exit of the subway, in the square of Martim Moniz, I met the Portuguese cock, fashioned out of old Newspapers.
Then I went to Rua de Palma, a street North of the square.
The terrain was not impressed with Chinatown, which is the area.
Finally I got to the Viriato rooms Guesthouse (map), located in two hundred meters from the metro. Very small white three-storey house, located a little deep in the quarter, in a quiet courtyard, made a most favorable impression. The process of settlement cost without unnecessary formalities (it was enough to say the name), and I was taken to the second floor to show the apartment.
Floors made of natural wood (this is rare in the Pyrenees - almost everywhere ceramic tiles) and mats on them give the institution a homely atmosphere. My room was next through the door from the bathroom shared by two rooms. Someone may not like such facilities, but I am a lowly person and prefer to save a few euros a day. Note that for 4 days not once did not have to wait under the door-the bathroom was always free.
Outside my door the window is square, the internal courtyard is a well. The Windows are always open, so in the hallway walked a little wind and it was not hot.
Room, which cost me 80 euros for 4 nights (Photo, of course already lived-in rooms). Available wardrobe with a large mirror, Desk, chest of drawers, bedside table, fan, folding chair.
And another wonderful carved chair ," from the Palace".
From the window there was a view of the roofs of Alfama, at the top there were bastions of the castle of St. George. Under the window I found another useful thing - the clotheslines with clothespins.
