Hotel review - Radisson Blu Hotel Lisbon, Portugal

The room was rather spacious, but the bed was rather uncomfortable and also the pillows. The walls between the rooms are very thin.

Paid public parking in front of the hotel and free wi-fi.

Good breakfast.

Trip to Toro, Spain

Small town, but lively. Perfect if you want to see how life is in a typical Spanish town, far from the tourist crowds.

An absolute must: the local chocolate "La Superlativa" - the wonderful taste from 20 years ago.
