What a beautiful hotel, the grant cloister is a wonderful place to sit and read or while away the time waiting to meet friends. The hotel is clean and the staff friendly. It was also a blessing to stay here for the breakfast, beautiful fresh fruit (we had been missing this on our visit to Madrid earlier in the week).... More

Hotel Spa Convento Las Claras is a remarkably tranquil hotel in the heart of Penafiel. It's is friendly and accommodating and altogether professional. They will make reservations at the local attractions, they are on a first name basis with the attraction personnel. With a limited number of rooms, the cloister ambiance brings one to a simpler time. The breakfast consisting... More

The manager conspired with the receptionist to lie about the bill. We chose the hotel to spend a day catching up on business after a holiday. The wi-fi didn't work. We were drawn into the hotel's endless attempts to rectify the situation which cost us the four hours of our two night stay and proved fruitless. Finally, the receptionist offered... More

This is a nice hotel in a historic building, with picturesque interiors and views. But the restaurant experience was horrible, although judging by the looks of it, the hotel restaurant could have been the best one in town. Still, the rabo de toro was obviously defrosted, or rather, not defrosted enough for us to find a frozen layer in our... More

That' s a surprisingly nice place to stay.really pleasant place, with a nice view and remarkable facilities (from 17th century). Enjoyable SPA to relax and a good place to stay if you wish to visit wine production " bodegas" in the neighbour cities. Breakfast is good enough .
