“All right for a stopover”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

This hotel is in a newer part of town near a hill and yet at a walking distance to downtown Setubal. If you come here with a vehicle, there are spots for parking right in front of the main door. Otherwise, there is a large square in front of the hotel to park as well. The railroad station is not far too.
The hotel in itself is clean but is showing signs of aging and would need some lift-up to offer a better appearance. It boasts to be a 3-star accommodation but is only a 2-star standard. The room has all the usual amenities, including a small TV set. There is no special attention to decoration. The en suite bathroom has a turn-of-the-century look with a bathtub and a bidet.
This is a quiet area. The town has nothing much to offer to tourists. The hotel staff is friendly. Breakfast is included in the room rate and is just ok. No fresh orange juice (only colored water) and coffee is so so. Forget about any kind of eggs.
Nothing much to complain about because the rate offered is very good and I only stayed there overnight on my way back to Lisbon.

This is not a great hotel . Its all a bit dated . The staff were mostly helpful & the price isn't bad but breakfast wasn't very good & you had to pay extra for decent coffee or fruit juice . The location is ok close to station

The hotel is close to the train station and a few minutes walk from the old town and main tourist area. Breakfast is simple and the rooms clean and adequate. The caring and friendly staff are the highlight.

The most remarkable feature about the Hotel is the friendliness of its staff. They make an effort to make you feel welcome at the Hotel, and that makes a difference, inclunding the "home-made" style breakfast. The location is convenient, it is fast to get to from the highway, and close to the train station. A good place to explore the city and the surroundings. The free wi-fi in the bedroom is a strong advantage for the price they charge. The mattress is not very confortable though.

Room Tip: Rooms have thin walls, try to get a room with no "neighbours"

We were looking for a hotel - not too expensive) - near the old historical center of Setubal (and also near the hospital where we had to go the following day) and found the Arangues.

It is nothing special at all, but the room we had was quite big, the bathroom small, but sufficient.
The air condition / heater worked perfectly, the internet unfortunately not (yet). Changes ahead as promised.

The breakfast normal for Portuguese standard.

But what has to be said is that the hot staff was extremely polite and very pleasant, trying to please the guests, giving valuable information about Restaurants and places to visit around the Hotel.

On our next trip to Setubal we will choose again this Hotel.

We stayed here for a week and it was lovely. We went end of August/beginning of September. The room was spacious and clean, also had a nice view (we were on 3rd floor facing Palmela, the next city, and could see the castle lit up). Was a quiet and central area, good night sleep and felt safe, and close to city centre, restaurants, cafes and beaches. The staff were very friendly and helpful, all made us feel so welcomed from receptionist, cleaner to breakfast staff. Even when we overstayed by one night (I had a terrible cold), the staff were able to book us for another night without a problem and made sure I felt better.

The breakfast was perfect, bread rolls, croissants, jams, butter, ham and cheese, fruit, yogurt, cereal, coffee. We went in summer so didn't feel the need for any hot food as it was round 35-40 degrees! City centre just round the corner and beaches are close by too, you have option of 3 beaches, the city beach which at the end of the main Avenida Todi, or bus ride to Figueirinha (they had summer buses with no roofs which make a great ride through the hills to get to the beach, and third one is Troia which you can get a ferry to (but make sure you get the passenger ferry not the car ferry as otherwise you'll find yourself on the other side of Troia instead of the beach side!) Setubal was a bit quite, but in September started getting busier (guessing people were coming back from holidays and back to study). Palmela is a bus ride away and ha a wine festival which we went to and there was a seafood festival in Setubal.

The hotel also had a swimming pool and message services, but they did not seem to be frequently used, we had a look and there was no staff there at the time and it was closed. Also price is bit hefty to use gym and pool, think it was like 15 euros per day. It's a shame, they should make that price weekly at least, but then again you can go to the beach to swim. Also, not much choice for english tv unfortunately.

All in all, we had such a lovely experience here, we were quite sad to leave.
