4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I looked at the hotel from the outside and thought, this can't be true: a bunch of old stones that made it appear as if the building was in dire need of a revamp. But then I opened the door and it's a completely different place. Basically the architect used whatever old stone walls happened to be there and built... More

A delightful, small, friendly hotel, this is a great place to stay in Guarda. The unique old building incorporates sections of the much older town wall and another, older, building. The interior has been completely remodelled – one half is on one side of the old town wall, and the other half on the other side, leading to some interesting... More

Spent three nights at this location. Centrally located in Guarda, this hotel is lovely and very clean. Wifi service worked very well. The owner or hotel manager Dona Clara was very welcoming and kind. Parking is tight, but D. Clara even helped to find parking in a location close to the hotel. Breakfast was plentiful with breads, different meats, cereals,... More

We spent one night in this lovely hotel full of character. It is neat and clean. The room was quite small for two adults and one child (we reserved a room for 3 adults) but it was ok for one night. The breakfast - included in the prize - was outstanding with plenty of bread rolls, toasts, croissants, joghurt, juices,... More

We stayed at this hotel on our way up to France from the Algarve. Hotel Santos is a lovely quirky hotel situated right in the centre of Guarda making exploring the old town really easy. The staff were friendly and the room was very clean and tidy. We (3 adults) shared a triple and there was plenty of room. The... More

In the center of Guarda, with the wall of the old city as part of the interior of the hotel, a warm welcome on a cold bitter day. The served breakfast, included in the price, was enough for 4. Hope to return at a warmer time.

Traveling from Spain and through Portugal during this trip and stumbled into this charming hotel which was a Resisential but now 1 star hotel. This should be a 3 star, as I have stayed in many that were inferior quality to this charming hotel. The posterior inside wall is the large stone wall of the city fortress and it is... More
