TRYP Covilha Dona Maria Hotel
Ranked #3 of 10 Hotels in Covilha
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Had a 5 day vacation with my wife and 2 month old child. Overall we had a nice time at the hotel. The room was suppose to be noiseless but it wasn't, probably wouldn't notice it if not for the feeding schedule of our little baby. Didn't really found out the cause/source of the noise, but did talk about it with the front desk, and they where as helpful as could be considering I couldn't pinpoint what was causing the noise or where exactly it was coming from.
If you like to workout during your vacation, I can honestly say this was the hotel with the best gym I have ever found. It's quit nice and let's you do a very reasonable workout .
One thing I didn't like, and found to be very poor was the wifi service provided by the hotel. I was in the 4th floor and had next to none Internet access. The signal was very poor, and most of the time nonexistent. Once again talked to the front desk, and promptly they tried to get it to work a bit better but with no luck to me.
The staff was most helpful. Overall, very nice stay.

Room Tip: There are only to possibilities, front view or rear view. Front view sees the lower part of Covilhã...

Stayed there just for one night, but had a pleasant experience. It was a very spacious room with a comfortable bed, warm and quiet. Breakfast was good. They have free wifi which is great, but I had trouble with the signal strenght - the internet service absolutely needs improvement. Overall, it's a great hotel for a cheap price.

Wife and I and a relative couple stayed here for a night. We felt that the hotel was excellent value, with nice, clean and spacious rooms. The receptionists were very friendly and printed off some google map pages for our next destination (Fatima). Their English standard was good. We used the restuarant for dinner and the food was good and not expensive. Parking was no problem at all (the main reason for choosing this hotel in the first palace), we just parked our car at one of the parking bay right in front of the hotel. Apparently there was a free underground car park too. Our rooms had a beautiful view of the mountains and even we were faced the front main road, it wasn't noisy at all. Free WIFI worked well. We didn't use the swimming pool.

As was highlighted in some previous reviews, our TomTom also had difficulty directing us to the hotel. We ended up on a side road with some buildings rather than turning right at the roundabout before reaching the hotel. The TRYP sign at the top of the hotel building was such that it was very difficult to tell it was TRYP. As it was raining, we had to asked the locals a couple of times to get to it. Perhaps the signage could be improved to help customers locating the hotel. LIDL supermarket is right next door and one could ask for that when lost, it could be easier?

This hotel is really of super value and highly recommended.

Stayed here for several nights while working in Covilha. Rooms are large, very clean and comfortable. Hotel has rooms at 32euros. Beds are a bit hard but rooms are comfortable, bathrooms are large, clean and good shower. Mini bar prices are reasonable. Hotel as a pool but it does not open until 10.am. Swimming caps must be worn and are available for 3 euros. Breakfast is self serve and there is a good choice although not a large range of hot food (just sausage, egg and bacon). Nice rolls/bread, croissant and home made preserves. Dinner is very good. Fish was great. Menu is very meaty but what would you expect in t he interior. Service is good, staff are helpful. It's a long walk up hill to town but buses are frequent and stop is near. Shopping Centre is across the road. Hotel was very quiet. Enjoyable stay.

A great hotel with friendly and chatty staff who could not be more helpful, telling where to go to in the old town for a good night out.

I think it’s a 3 and not 4 star hotel, but I can’t fault it in any way. Rooms are huge, as is the bathroom. You have to hunt for the pillows in the wardrobe for some reason! Free wi-fi and a fridge are handy. No tea/coffee making facilities.

The bed was comfortable and once I’d fond the pillows I had a good nights sleep.

It’s a good walk to the town centre (centre is lovely, try to pick up some local honey and cheese), maybe a taxi on the way home.

Breakfast was a good continental buffet style of cereals/yoghurts and pastries/breads, hot meats, bacon, eggs etc.

I’d stay again.
