L = Lisbon & my favs
My favourite place to stay is the Living Lounge Hostel is just off the pedestrian streets in the centre of Lisbon. This hostel has the feel of a very comfortable boutique hotel and, for a solo traveler; there is an option of a single room! Each room was designed and decorated by a different artist, many of whom are associated with the hostel. And they offer fantastic dinners for just a little extra. This is a great place to stay and close to many attractions and transit.
Want a trip back in time and a great view? Take the tram up to the Castelo de Sao Jorge. I loved walking through the castle and taking in the views.
The Santa Justa Elevator is a about a block away from the Living Lounge Hostel and is another great way to see the city. If it reminds you of the Eiffel Tower, it should because it was designed by an apprentice to Gustave Eiffel. It connects the central downtown area to the Bario Alto.
Here are a few of my favourite photos of Lisbon.
