We stayed here for 2 nights exploring Batalha, Tomar, Alcobaça and Obidos. Not only it's a perfect location to explore the area, it's a perfect hotel in every regard. It's located across from Batalha Monastery, offers a wonderful restaurant with free buffet breakfast and delicious dinner, super comfortable rooms and free parking on site. All staff are very friendly and helpful as are store and restaurant owners in town. It's a true 4 star hotel that you would not find easily for EU 99.00 per night. It's perfect for a family holiday or a romanitc getaway. When we return I would not think twice about booking this hotel because, as I said so many times in this review, it's perfect.
