From the reviews I saw here my expectations were quite high, but I'm afraid this hotel is not as good as some people have described it. Yes the design is very nice, and the common areas do provide a great atmosphere, with a mix of traditional and contemporary that makes this place quite original and attractive. The location is also good, right in the center of Vila Viçosa. However, the details miss out on the excelence which is advertised: the beds are very uncomfortable, the room was not sound proof at all and we were awake as early as 7AM both by the bells in the nearby church as well as by the noises from the downstairs kitchen and doors being shut in our floor. The shower head was very old and looked like something that came from the early 80's and there was a bad smell coming from the sink. We had to turn off the AC because it was so noisy we could not sleep, and so we ended up with a very hot room. There are no elevators, so we had to walk up the stairs carrying out luggage, which was also not pleasant, and they don't have parking as well.The breakfast also lacks variatey, especially if you consider the regional products, which were not present at the breakfast buffet. Overall it's not a bad place to stay, but for the price probably there are better places.
