Sagres, Portugal
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

Very good location if you're staying with friends, it's next to the docs and the LX factory which are great for dining and partying. Nice rooms, didn't miss anything, good breakfast, we were 4 girlfriends so they provided interconnected rooms, the only thing is the lighting in the rooms and bathroom is poor (bad for makeup). Recommended.

This hotel is a great one for the accommodations : nice pool, nice restaurant, fitness room, bar... But I'm not sure the rooms deserved the 4**** status. The room is well-sized but doesn't look new, the double bed is turned into a 2 single beds, and the bathroom is not cleaned as it should !

Stayed for a 3-day business trip in October. The rooms were big, very nice and elegant. I requested a room looking at the river and got a side look which was again OK for me. The staff were very helpful as I had a couple of problem with my invoices. The breakfast at the hotel was perfect!!!

The Hotel is very elegant, clean and tasteful. The name "Vila Gale Opera" is adequate to the very nice decorations inside hotel. It's full of composer's portraits, old costumes used in opera performances, sheet music from Traviata on the wall and very nice pianos which create subtle, artistic atmosphere. Also each single room is named by names of famous musicians...

Good confortable room. Helpfull staff and nice public rooms. Location not great and a bit noisy although insulation in the hotel helped. Good value for short break and taxi to city centre were not expensive.

This Hotel has a very good price positioning... and no one can expect a five star service ! The staff is friendly and as helpful as possible , the quality of the food at the restaurant is more than acceptable. But the biggest drawback is the proximity of the trains and the bridge which make the hotel very very noisy...

In some ways eccentric. Having seen the reviews and being a little worried about the noise, yet needing to stay here for a business meeting, I contacted the hotel to ask for a quiet room. I was told to book a superior one, which cost about 20% more. Now imagine being able to book this without being asked for a...
