What a beautiful place! This places oozes charm and history. The downside is that it has 20th century fittings so do not expect modern five star luxury, particularly so far as rooms/ bathrooms are concerned. But what modern glass palace of a hotel can compete with the massive common rooms and long high ceilinged and red carpeted corridors which you... More

I visited Pousada de Guimaraes Santa Marinha in Portugal in June 2015. This was the first of four Pousadas to be visited on a Saga Tour holiday which was most enjoyable. The accommodation at this Pousadas was excellent and luxurious. The history of Portugal's Pousadas is fascinating - each one is different and quite stunning. The accommodation is luxurious and...

Impressive hotel in old beautiful monastery. however it lacks an intimate and lively atmosphere which after two days is making you a bit dark minded. oke for the monks but not for tourists. woke for young children but not for the teenagers. nothing tot do.

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
