Our recent stay at this pousada left us with mixed feelings. The main building, which is a restored palace, is an interesting and elegant place. Although a little worn down in areas there is a definite charm. Getting to the building where the rooms are located next door in a converted flour factory felt like traveling through a maze because of the poor floor plan which could definitely be improved or better signed. Our actual room was a disappointment. It was located at street level so that if the curtains were open we could see any passerby – so naturally we kept the curtains drawn and since the room had dark ochre walls, it was like being in a cave. We were especially disappointed when we saw that the rooms facing the Douro River had a fabulous view and would have been much brighter. Service was non-descript, though it did seem as though staff was young and not very well trained.
