Perfect place loaded with history. the place is beautiful, with a cloister. we lodged in a standard room in a monk cell, nicely furnished, but quite small with no view (on trees). As in all pousadas we went to, the bathroom is old fashioned, small, and you do not really want to stay in there too long. Breakfast was good... More

Pousada De Guimaraes Santa Marinha was absolutely one of the most impressive hotels I have ever stayed. The hotel was situated on a hillside overlooking Guimaraes with a distance of two kilometers from the city center. The hotel was settled in a beautiful monastery dating back to 12th century.I spent several hours for just touring in the hotel and in... More

This hotel is in a beautiful setting in the hills above Guimaraes. The pousada has been tastefully converted from an old monastery. We paid a little extra for rooms in the original building - there is a modern extension housing more basic rooms. The pousada staff were very welcoming and always polite and eager to please. The old building is... More

If, like us, you booked the Pousada De Guimaraes then the first thing you need to do is forget the name. The direction signs in town, the local taxi drivers and the sign on the building all call it the Pousada de Santa Marinha - now it's quite easy to find. The hotel overlooks the town and is joined to... More

Pousada de Santa Marinha - Guimaraes We arrived in Guimaraes after an eventful trip from Viseu. The GPS could not find the hotel so we hired taxi to lead us up to the Pousada. When we arrived we were told that wifi would not work in our “traditional” room. As we had some scheduling issues and needed to work them... More

We’ve stayed at this hotel for two nights. The building is very impressive. Reception’s staff were very nice and helpful. The swimming pool and the garden behind the hotel are amazing. However, there were two things that we were not satisfied about. The first is the road to get out from this hotel. There are no clear signs and we... More

This pousada has everything going for it but it misses being great. The room is unattractive and is very bare. The hotel is cold. The location is a bit far from town. Breakfast, the garden and the swimming pool are up to standard for a Posada. I am saying basically that it is not good value for the high price... More

We were disappointed having booked the Pousada based on high TA ratings. We booked a superior historic room and were shown a somewhat austere, univiting room next to a noisy service room/elevator. Comfortable it was not - I would hate to have seen the inferior historic rooms! Having articulated our displeasure, we were shown one of the modern rooms which... More
