We stayed here on the 10th October using it as a stop off between Santander and the Silver Coast. What a fantastic hotel. Nothing was too much trouble. We were even offered an alternative room, if we didn't like the first one we were shown. We took the first one, which had amazing views over the counrtyside. The bedrooms are...

First class place in a very interesting fortress town. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Very nice, spacious room with a view. The whole place was very well maintained. Breakfast was good. Wi-Fi was sporadic in the room but strong in the lounge area. Don't miss the military museum down the hill for an interesting view of local history.

Very nice hotel with an owner who made her business to chat to all her guests and made us feel really welcome. The room was large and comfortable, with a corner balcony giving views over both village and fortifications, and the bathroom was as large as some hotel rooms I've stayed in! The hotel itself has an air of spaciousness,...

The hotel is located in a relatively modern building that contrasts a bit with the surrounding medieval village of Almeida. The interior is not modern but it's decorated vith a very good taste, I really loved the decoration of every corner, all the common rooms are spacious and furnished with old elegant furniture and beautiful artcrafts. We stopped there because...

This delightful hotel, formerly a Pousada, is just a short deviation from the main motorway route from Spain to Portugal and commands an elevated site within the old walls of this fortified town. The hotel itself is small enough to allow personal service with friendly and most helpful staff. The dining room serves a wonderful buffet breakfast and the evening...
