Lisbon---In the City or Out?

Jump to last reply

We are going to Lisbon for a week at Easter, first trip for myself and my 9 year old daughter. 2nd trip for my husband, but that was years ago. We live in Germany and have travelled extensively throughout Europe.

Would you stay in the city? Or stay in Cais Cais? I have a friend who used to live in Cais Cais, but I am not sure we want to be too far from Lisbon, and we do not want to split up the hotel stays. Which would be better? We want to do day trips, we are not into late night partying or bar hopping at all. But we want to see the "sites".

Any suggestions, or parts of Lisbon to stay in are welcome, we want to spend between 100-150 euros per night, we do not want a loud hotel or one with thin walls. Been there and done that. We would like to have WIFI in the rooms, we would like good accessibility to trains/buses to see diff parts of the area.

Would love access to a pool, are the pools heater or not usually in April? Tennis and spa are a huge bonus.

Thanks,
