We highly recommend this hotel. We had a wonderful stay in this comfortable, clean, lofty old home. The building is full of character and speaks to the long history of Luso. The staff and owners were happy, friendly and offered amazing advice on what to do in the area. They have a great understanding of the regional and national history... More

Our second time to Alegre Hotel gave us an opportunity to revisit the charm of a wonderful small town in the interior of Portugal and manor house full of "Old Portugal." We were not disappointed, nor were the guests who accompanied us on this current trip. The furniture, setting, and manners are classic Portuguese, so don't expect granite showers, big... More

This hotel is 85 years old and has been renovated but not changed since. Breakfast was so-so, bathroom very tiny and the bed was really too hard. But you get wonderful views, old furniture, high ceilings and very friendly staff. I wouldn't stay here for a week, but it's a fun place for night.

Luso is a nice quiet town. Because the reviews on tripadvisor were not too enthousiastic about the rooms in the Palace Hotel in Bussaco, we decided to stay in the Hotel Allegre, which is cheaper and looked good. We were not disappointed. We were greeted courteously by the owner, and the room and bed were stylish (though the bed was... More

Very comfortable, friendly hotel. The accommodation is as the websites describe. Plenty of history and antiques. Beautiful quality bed linen. Bathroom could do with updating but it was part of the charm. Lovely soft water. Enjoyed our stay and would return when visiting the area again.

Pleasant and a bit old fashioned, with very friendly staff. The man on reception was exceptionally nice, although his French was much better than his English, and we asked the waitress at breakfast to cook the eggs we had brought with us (my friends have food allergies) which they did very willingly. The 3 of us had a suite with... More

The Alegre is old and old-fashioned where that is nice (in the rooms, furniture and decorations) and modern where it matters (in the bathrooms and with excellent wi-fi). It has a very comfortable lounge with a fireplace (that was burning each evening during my visit), a nice small swimming pool, good private parking, a pleasant garden, and an excellent location...

The house was very nice in the old typical portugueese house. The room was very clean and the area very calm. The localisation was good: near from the bus stop, from the therm, and the wood of Buçaco, eveything available by foot. They spoke also french. The owners were very polite. Breakfast was good, the swimming pool in the garden... More
