A group of us stayed here in October. The hotel is quite nice with a competent and professional desk staff, although they don't often answer phone calls from the rooms. There are two computers for guests use in the lobby. There is also a bar in the lobby that looks to be just for show because there is another, much more active bar on the first floor. They have sandwiches for sale in the bar, but there is a small supermarket directly across the street where you can buy prepared foods and groceries. The breakfast room is on the second floor and is hopping with so many tour groups staying at the hotel. That said, the breakfast is good in taste and quantity. The hotel is quiet even though it is on a main street because it is set back off the road. I would stay again because of the location and value and they may have to most comfortable beds in Portugal.
