The room was clean and comfortable , big bed , bath and good AC, the only thing was the TV sound level was low and would go above 25, but cant complain I have stayed several times now and will return again
I stayed in this hotel in the middle of a road trip. Do to Covid, Government made it mandatory that people couldn't travel for the weekend, so I stayed for 4days. From the outside it looks like the hotel looks like it needs a big refurbishment and you are going to enter a bad 60's hotel, however inside everything is shiny and new. The hotel is set on the outskirts of Guarda, not far from the centre, however Guarda centre is on top of a hill so if you are going without car be ready to get comfortable shoes and walk steep hills. From hotel to historical centre is 15m Climb. The best way is to walk the first street that enter the mall (yes!) and get on escalator to the top. Unfortunately I only found out this on the 2nd day.. The Room itself has a beautiful view to the hills, however not all rooms have views. TV is standard and the Wifi is open and works good as long as you don't want to watch Netflix or Twitch streams, though VPN open them easily. (For some reason these two websites were blocked, maybe more are, but these were the only ones I found blocked, Prime worked) The restaurant is very nice and breakfast has everything one would want with nice food. Dinner was very tasty as well, though the price is a little expensive. (better prices in town). The bar was really pleasant but they should have a bigger television for people to enjoy things as a group (covid and all) Staff was nice but could be better trained especially the housekeeping. Communication between reception and housekeeping was bad having had couple of issues with my room being cleaned and sheets being changed. Also doing check in was sent to a room that wasn't made. Other then that the woman receptionist and the skinny male receptionist were polite. The more strong male receptionist didn't know about the rules and recommended me a restaurant outside of the area I could travel (Good thing I checked). The best staff were all in the restaurant. Blonde waitress was very polite being there serving breakfast and also the barman who made a really good drink for me but also served me dinner in the bar and was a very good waiter. Last thing I want to comment is in this area there are some kind of beetles that are common to the area. They are not dangerous, (they squirt a smell if you attack them which is not toxic but those smell the room) they are very annoying though as they make noise when flying and will wake you up if you are a light sleeper. They don't scare easily and are very easy to kill however there are a lot of them. There wouldn't be such an issue if the hotel had a good outside. As they enter through under the window still. The hotel needs a big refurbishment on the outsides. Overall this hotel has many things to improve but still a good enough 3 star hotel.…
The hotel overlooks the valley and has fantastic views. Plenty of safe on street parking, but they do have an underground carpark, which was reasonably priced. It's not far from the town centre, but it is a stiff walk up a steep hill, or a steep scramble up the hill opposite the hotel. Check in was easy and the gentlemen spoke good english. The room was large with comfortable beds. Breakfast had a good selection of dishes, but there weren't enough tables made up for breakfast. Great little italian restaurant about a 5 minute walk from the hotel and cheap. It's a nice hotel, but a little dated
We stayed in this city primarily to break a longer journey. This hotel seems designed for the needs of a business traveller. It was one of the more basic hotels we stayed at. However it was clean and comfortable and the staff, who were at times struggling with English (not a criticism, just an observation) were keen to be of assistance. Parking was easily found just on the street - at no cost. and the views from the rear of the building were spectacular.
What an amazing Hotel from the distance. Perched up on the top of the hill. When you get to your room hopefully you will have one with the wonderful views. The room was very comfortable. We stayed for two nights. The meals, although set meals were very good, as was the breakfast. The staff were also very good.
