The hotel is in a great location in town overlooking a section of the walled city. Truly wonderful views. While the hotel is a bit dated, it is comfortable enough. When you are out in the hinterlands, you have to understand that four star is different from a four star hotel in the city. T 022he rooms are plenty big,...

We visited Almeida as we have never visited a Portuguese Pousada. We still never have, as this charming hotel/restaurant is now no longer part of the Pousada chain. However, we were made very welcome and served a very tasty meal with a perfectly splendid bottle of Siria Wine. We arrived and were made very welcome indeed. By the time I...

The hotel is within the 'star fort' village and is comfortable if somewhat expensive and is showing signs of its age. The room was spacious and had all necessary facilities. The restaurant is somewhat formal and the food is good without being outstanding. There is no lift.

Great location. Great rooms. Great staff. Straightforward parking. Great food. Setting is in the middle of an 18th Century fortress which is nearly intact. Small bar. Outside terrace. Third time of staying over a 6 year period. Everything has remained as good as ever.

We really enjoyed the hotel, having spent there two nights. Besides a great room with all the amenities, a very good breakfast and a great staff. The Hotel is well located, inside the medieval fortress, allowing to visit all the fortifications and also to spend some quiet quality time.

We stayed here on a motorcycle trip, the hotel is located just inside the fortifications, so it's easy to walk round the town. The service was excellent with very helpful staff. There is a secure garage under the hotel so we had no worries about the bikes. We had room 215 which has a balcony and views of the fortifications,...

This is a Pleasant place where I made an overnight stop when I was driving from France to Figuera da Foz. This hotel was a former Pousada, the decoration is a bit outdated, but it is very quiet and very will located at the gates of Portugal.

Very interesting town with plenty of history but the hotel seems to have stood still. At one time it would have been very classy but is now quite dated. Good sized rooms, plenty of space to get around with large corridors and staircase and plenty of room inside and out to relax. Bar prices were high (4€ for a small...
