We stayed 2 nights here and we were very satisfied with our visit. When we arrived we met the hotel owner at the reception and he provided us detailed information about the attractions that we wanted to visit. All the other staff members were very friendly too and answered to all our questions. Great service and super friendly owner. The... More

I really liked this hotel, the staff is very nice and the location is great to explore Serra do Gerês. The room was big and very clean, the bed was also pretty comfortable, the breakfast was above average. The hotel has free wifi and parking.

Mountain views from the rooms are worth the small extra price. Comfortable, relaxed environment. Quiet. Easy walking distance to small town with restaurants, etc. A great place to stay. Staff very helpful with advice on day activities.

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed our base at Hotel Moderna - just up the hill from the bus stop and the main street in Vila do Geres. Great value. Helpful staff provided some info on local walking routes and help planning onward travel. Big room and bathroom and balcony very clean. Very good breakfast.

Stayed here one night. The reception was a little hasty because the receptionist was also serving tables at lunch. The room was okay but a little old. The bed was quite small and was hard for me to sleep in. Breakfast was good. The information on where to go for a hike was a little unclear, but with a bit... More

The proprietor and his family are welcoming and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. We like hiking and an excellent hike was organized for us each day. Nice breakfast and we ate dinner there twice - simple, wholesome, filling and delicious and I highly recommend the Veal Moderna style. All-in-all, a thoroughly enjoyable three nights. Free on-site parking a bonus... More

We were given lots of help on things to see, drives and walks in the area. Private car park. Nice elevated postion above... More

We arrived to the hotel on the cold and rainy day. Rooms were heated nicely, and they stayed like this throughout our stay. Rooms were big enough and very clean. Bathroom was also very clean and nicely bright & refurbished. The owner, was wonderful! He gave us so much advice where to travel and what to see, the best routes... More
