Reviewed October 24, 2012

Enjoyed two nights here in October. 10 minute walk from the train staion. Not many services at the train station when we arrived on a Sunday so bring a basic map to help find your way or ask the helpful locals for directions. Tomar was a nice respite after the frantic pace of Lisbon. The hotel is on a pedestrian only walkway, with a nice sandwich place across the way and great restaurants nearby. The hotel clerk was kind and helpful and we felt very welcome here. Our room faced the walkway in the front of the building but we were not bothered by any noise and could see the castle and monastery out and to the right from our window. Bathroom was large,clean, modern and had a nice shower. Breakfast was an abundent buffet with many choices of bread, cheese, meats, fruit, pastries, tea, coffee etc. and kept us going all day!! The breakfast room is lovely!!! My only regret was that I couldn't stay here longer. Would definitely return here.

The pensao is on one of the main streets, a perfect point to start in any direction. I suppose it would be quite and calm, if there was no a festival and "millions" of people on the streets far after midnight. No elevator and the stairs are very narrow and steep. It is hard to pass with a big suitcase. Friendly staff on the reception. They place at our disposal an iron, when it was needed. Nice breakfast was included in the price of the room. The room was like the whole building, old with its own long history. The floor was covered with an old and dirty kind of rug or carpet, otherwise the room and the bathroom were spacious enough. The windows had window covers, which could save you from the street noise even if they can not close firmly, like in our case. The bed was comfortable. There was also a Wi-Fi included in the price.

We stayed two nights at this very lovely hotel. This is a great place to stay if you are on a budget. Our room was quite spacious with a large bathroom. There was no hairdryer (we had our own) and no closet, just a couple of hangers. I just loved the old style of this hotel. The staff is very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was good and the breakfast room is just lovely. Also, great location, right in the middle of the town center.

Room Tip: You may want to have a room not facing the main street, as it can get a bit noisy at night. We close...

The Residencial Uniao is an adorable little hotel with an amazing owner.
He is really helpful and nice.
The rooms are quite big and clean. The bed are comfortable and big.

The hotel is well located in Tomar. It is near the "shopping" street.

The only thing is that the breakfast that could be improved....

But really enjoyed my night there!!!

This hotel is very basic. It is almost a hostel. I would say it is mostly for student travelers. We were travelling with my mom (75 years old) and were not ready for that kind of place. There is a feeling that it “should be OK and clean” if you know what I mean. We travelled in April and it was much colder than normal. Temperature in the hotel room was barely 15oC. It is very cold! When we asked for heating, the clerk answered that the heating is off in April. That’s it!

The location is very good tough. It is situated on the central pedestrian street in the old town. For one night it is OK. Be aware, there is no parking around. If you will be lucky, you will find spot on the city parking. Sunday is free, so, Saturday night you can park with no charge if you got a spot.

Room Tip: I am not sure there is a difference between rooms...

We located this hotel easily and even got free car parking. The check in was great and we even had a pick of rooms and chose one with a double bed and single bed with a large bathroom. Wifi was included and so was breakfast. It is situated on a pedestrian mall and there was no road noise. Daniela was very helpful and even helped us with our luggage. The rate was favourable and good value

We loved Tomar and the Residencial Uniao. It is in the center of the historical district, a short distance from the train/bus station. It is an easy distance to walk. The staff was helpful. We decided to extend our stay because of the "quiet and peaceful" area. It was a useful base for us to take daily trips by bus to other sites in the area. The room was comfortable and clean.
