“walking distance to the sanctuary”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

This is a new hotel, very efficient front desk, big room big bath room. The problem is the walls between the rooms are so thin that one can hear every thing that goes in the next door room, our next door guest decided to take a shower at five o'clock in the morning, we were sure that someone was using our bath room, not to mention the conversation he had with his wife! The food was average coffee was bad. The good thing is that the sanctuary is hardly five minutes walk and you can even hear the ceremony in your room.

We were here on pilgrimage, and the hotel is very convienent to the shrine. Good service at all hours, and the staff never seemed put out. Rooms larger than we expected, and the restaurant was excellent.

Reservation by phone was a snap. On arrival my GPS did not know that the traffic flow had been changed from prior visit; however, Fatima is not a huge city and we easily rerouted. Into nderground parking next to elevator and a rapid checkin.
As before, rooms were spotless; room staff pleasant and helpful; dining room staff attentive in spite of several tour bus loads there and the food was very pleasing. We took our breakfast and dinner at the hotel and were pleased with our decision; there are some good local restaurants now but eating at the hotel is still a good choice for us.
As others have noted, the Sanctuary is very close. By wheelchair to the Sanctuary might be a bit difficult since the Hotel is below the street level but we did see others getting up OK. Once up, the rest is OK.
We have stayed here several times now and have been very pleased with excellent value.

Room Tip: Front rooms have been good and rooms to left as you face hotel.

The hotel is very close to the Fatima Sanctuary. It is very new and well run. The breakfast was also good. Actually the bathroom was one of the best during our trip in Portugal (I did not flood the bathroom during my shower) :-))!!

Room Tip: It is about 12 minute walk (I timed it with luggage) from the bus station and not hilly. Take a righ...

This hotel was very close to the sanctuary so it was convenient when walking back from late night processions. Breakfast was included and it was good. Free wifi and air conditioning. I would stay here again

I travelled on the bus from Lisbon to Fatima. Although the hotel is a 10-15 minute walk from the bus terminal, I found it a bit tricky finding my way to the hotel having looked unsuccessfully online for a local map showing both the hotel address and the bus station. However I asked a shopkeeper for directions and she was most obliging. After finding the hotel it was a pleasure from there on. The lady at front desk gave me a different room so I could check in early. The hotel room was quiet and spacious with a large bathroom - all newly fitted out to good specifications. Other reviews I read described the hotel as sterile but I disagree, the room was uncluttered, calm and understated but this did not mean it was lacking at all with the requirements of a 4 star hotel, plus beautiful meaningful artwork and a simple bedside book giving details of the apparitions. The hotel itself is cleverly designed to make maximum use of natual light from above which made the interior feel open and serene. The Basilica is very close - only a few minutes walk away. The hotel dinning room was large and I compliment the way they place the tour groups together in a lower section. I travelled solo and in the past in hotels in places like Lourdes it can be overwhelming dining in a noisy dining room next to tour groups. The food was adequate and very reasonably priced (eg: 2 euro for a bowl of soup) although I only ate soup for dinner and the set breakfast so cannot comment on the rest of the menu. Overall I found the hotel calm and serene while still provinding all the comfort of a 4 star hotel. A special mention and thanks to the kind barman America Graca who made great hot chocolate after a cold evening candlelight procession.

This hotel is very close to the Sanctuary. I made an error with my booking and came a day late but staff at reception very helpful. Room and bathroom spacious very clean. I asked for a quiet room and away from lifts and this was honoured. Would recommend this hotel very highly and will certainly stay there again.
