Etnia is a very tastefully designed and furnished boutique hotel just off the Quadrado, Trancoso. Great rooms, great service, nice pool, very good restaurant. About 200m to the Quadrado and myriad other restaurants and shops. Off street parking. None of which is visible from the street-level entrance door.

Everyone here made this a great trip to Trancoso - loved the setting of the hotel and the pared down but lux feeling of the rooms. Massage on the balcony in the rain was a highlight :) I would love to go back

We loved our stay at Etnia. Staff are helpful, room was spacious (although be careful which room you get as not all are within reach of WiFi) and the pool is perfect for a morning dip. The only let down was the food. We paid 45 real for a microwaved mini quiche and a couple of lettuce leaves. But you’d be mad to eat there anyway when you have some of the finest restaurants right outside.

We stayed at Etnia for 3 days and really enjoyed our stay. We were in Ojule which had a kitchen and additional bathroom, so would have been perfect for a longer stay and/or with family or friends. We already had activities planned for each day of our stay so, if anything, we underutilised the hotel. Etnia is a short walk from the Quadrado but still near restaurants and shops. I'd recommend this hotel if you are looking to relax and with a bigger group, particularly if you are looking to stay on site and make use of the pool. The hotel is also opposite a gym and the police station, so very safe!

We wanted a quiet, romantic pousada to celebrate our anniversary and this was the perfect place. The owners and concierge were wonderful. We opted for dinner at the on site restaurant and lived the Rio do Barra. We would definitely stay here again.
