Overall, we enjoyed our stay and everything went well. We also liked the bar service and were always well catered for. The location is very good as it is very close to the city center. We seriously recommend.

Very competent staff - very nice touch was a bottle of champagne delivered to our room, courtesy of the hotel, on the occasion... More

We enjoyed our stay and were happy with the quality of the hotel. I would recommend fridge in each room and provide complimentary bottle water. We like the location of the hotel as it was quiet and away from the central/shopping area. Nice walk to the main square.

We enjoyed our stay at the Vila Nova hotel. My husband found the bed very hard, otherwise we were happy with the hotel, front desk and location. We like to walk so the 20 min. walk or so to downtown was very nice.

Many small things add up to an overall negative impression of this hotel. The beds are knee-high and have some kind of mattress protector that crinkles every time you move. There were no tissues, shampoo, conditioner or bars of soap. The toaster in the breakfast room doesn't work. We were not expecting too much luxury as this was part of... More
