The present owners of this EX-hotel has placed the pics of the previous luxury at booking.com. Reality is awful. There is even no name of Albergaria Valbom at that building. Inside it looks like Young Pioneer camp in USSR or even worse. Old worn furniture, lamps without bulbs AND two separate taps (for cold and hot water) in the bath-room! I could not imagine that such rooms and service can be offered in Europe. And they still have a piece of paper at the door with "epitaph" that IT IS a 4**** Hotel! I think that it is some sort of illegal practice.
