“Seaside retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The hotel may have economy rooms but there is nothing economy about it, everything is well presented with very comfortable beds. The location is perfect for wandering around Ericeira with the beach out the door to the left and the main square to the right. The staff are happy to provide maps and hints about where to eat breakfast.

Room Tip: The triple room on the terrace level has a great courtyard nearby to have a drink in and is quieter...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Just spent a night here and was very pleasantly surprised by the loveliness of this guesthouse/hotel in the centre of Ericeira. Bruno, the manager, is professional, helpful and friendly.

We were 4 adults and spent the night in one of the family rooms - more an apartment than a room as it has a completely separate bedroom with a lounge area and kitchenette. The decoration is in very good taste - modern, minimal and bright and the whole apartment is pristinely clean.

Coffee shops and restaurants are available in the immediate vicinity and the centre of town is 2 minutes away by foot.

We’ll be back!

Upon inspection of the room after check-in we noticed that the sheets, under the bed spread, were teeming with bed bugs. We demanded a refund and left immediately. I regret not taking any photos but as you can imagine, we had no interest in staying any longer than need be. You've been warned!

We stayed in one of the apartments on Rua da Barocca and we were really happy with our choice! The apartment is done up really nicely and has a great location with all the amenities within walking distance. The kitchen is equipped with everything you'd need and theres even a dish washer and a washing machine to use for free.
All the staff and the owner (and in fact everyone we came in contact with from Ericeira) are very friendly. We would recommend this place to anyone. It's a lovely seaside town with lots to offer and the short distance to Lisbon makes the perfect alternative for not so sunny days!

What a gem of a find! Tucked away on a tiny, cobbled side street, just a stone's throw from the sea front, Casa das Aguarelas is perfect! If it's character you're after in a hotel and a break from oversized, charmless monstrosities, then this is the place for you!

With a view out over the terracotta roof tops of Ericeira from our spotless, stylish room, a tiny terrace hidden away up on the top floor with views out to sea and the magnificent sunsets, and an incredibly warm welcome, this was by far our favourite stop off on our trip around Portugal! Just wish we could have stayed for longer!

It's not big and amazingly cosy. The building itself looks very authentic. Rooms are modern and authentic at the same time. The hotel is few steps away from the ocean, you can hear it if you open a window. In 2 minutes walk you'll find the center of Ericeira with lots or cafe and restaurants, all of them work till late at night

We´ve booked this hotel for a short but pleasant period. Very well located, the rooms are kept very tidy every day, were recently furnitured and are very confortable. The staff is very kind and willing to help. An excellent choice!
