Its for me the best hotel in price and location and conditions that the five star hotel must have. Have a nice pool in the last floor and the breakfast its good for a five stars hotel. The only problem that i think its to park the car, but in the street its not very hard. The Internet is good.

Easy enough to find, car parking in garage below hotel for 6.50€ a night. It’s an old hotel which has been refurbished in the past couple of years, and done well. Spacious quiet room, excellent WiFi, bathroom with good quality fittings and thick towels. Ten minutes’ walk from the centre of the old town. Breakfast included in price was a... More

Arrived at the hotel just as the main parade of the Sao Joao festival was starting in the street below our balcony so we watched it for a while before unpacking. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel looked modern and clinical like most new hotels. Our room 407 was large and well appointed with a balcony overlooking... More

Reading the reviews on TA I decided to book this hotel for 4 nights. I'm glad I did, the hotel is very good, the rooms are large and well furnished with good beds and a large bathroom with a lovely shower. Breakfast was decent for the price. We wanted to use the swimmingpool but the weather wasn't too good, so... More

We enjoyed our 5 night stay here very much although it got off to a rough start. We started off in a large suite with a great view in the front of the hotel, but discovered that the A/C in the major sitting room wasn't working and that windows in the front of the hotel get sun most of the... More

We – a grown up couple - stayed there for two nights on Eastern vacation. Staff was very helpful and attentive to your need. The architecture and design were very clean and with a Scandinavian touch: open space with lot of light. The newly restored room we stayed in was large, clean and had separate sitting room and sleeping room,... More

This 4 star Hotel, because of its very recent renovation, gives one a 5 star experience – everything in the room was like new. We chose a suite which had a separate bedroom & lounge room each with their own individually controlled air-conditioning, which worked extremely well as the weather was very hot. The electronic safe was full size. This... More

This is a newly refurbished Mercure (formerly different name and ownership) and the renovation was very well done. We had a suite on the top floor which included a bedroom and a separate sitting room as well as a balcony—all for around $90 a night. We ate lunch once in the hotel and were the only dinners in the restaurant... More
