This is our favourite Pousada. It never fails. It is so peaceful and a day or three here is brilliant for re-charging batteries. The rooms are spacious and the views stunning. The facilities are excellent. You do need a car! We highly recommend Flor da Rosa.

From the moment you approach this hotel your head says WOW. An imposing monastery in a rural location with a modern conversion. Set in a rural village with no facilities may put some people off but we loved it. It's a real get away from it place with lovely grounds, pool and gardens. Restaurants are available within a 10 min... More

We decided to spend 5 days driving around Portugal after our 3 days in Lisboa. One of the Pousadas on our itinerary was Crato. The drive from Oporto to Crato was very comfortable and once on the country roads, breathtaking. We rolled down our windows and smelled pine from the sparsely populated areas approaching Crato. The Crato hotel was outstanding.... More

what a wonderful place to go and relax, with lovely building with the old architecture mixed with modern facilities and services. We went there in the winter and it was very cold but inside the hotel, you felt like staying in a well protected castle. The room was wonderful and you could fell like a queen. Some of the outdoor...

A 4-star hotel in an old castle with a modern annex. Part of the rooms are in the old 13th century building. The rooms in the annex are spacious and agford a view of the countryside. It has a great restaurant and the breakfast buffet is a sight to behold. Absolutely recommendable.

I really wanted to stay at this hotel because it looked so beautiful. We booked a room for our honeymoon and when we got there they said that because so few people were staying they could upgrade us to a suite for a nominal fee and offered to show us both rooms. The first room was fine, in the castle... More

As part of a trip of one week, travelling from pousada to pousada, we stayed in the pousada of Crato, located in the adjacent quiet village Flor da Rosa. Staying in a castle is a great experience, and as we were able to obtain one of the special rooms in the tower at only a small supplement, we really felt... More

The Pousada is, I think, the nicest looking structure from outside among the pousadas -- with an impressive history to boot. It is a postcard pretty castle especially at night, I couldn't stop photographing the facade and the entrance areas to the pousada on the 3 days we were there. Note that I'm not including in this review my impressions... More

Having visited seven Pousadas to date, the Pousada at Flor da Rosa does not fail to match the excellent standards of this hotel chain. As with other Pousadas, this building is historically interesting and unique. It is well maintained, it is in a tranquil environment, the rooms are excellent and the hotel staff are friendly and welcoming. Wonderful for a... More
