Score from 434 reviews Wonderful
Everything. Especially the comfort and cleanliness. Pool area is also very nice. Vila Viçosa is a very lovely Alentejo town.
Really nothing to complain about.
This hotel deserves its high ranking its modern rooms and interior in complete contrast to the original old and attractive exterior. If staying more than one night I would recommend the suites which are very spacious. I town itself is not too large to explore by foot, with many modestly priced bars and restaurants. We were very well treated in the restaurant located a little way down and almost opposite to the hotel. There was plenty of street parking but not necessarily outside the hotel
The breakfast itself was excellent with a large selection of various items but it was spoilt by the orange juice which was awful and tasted like it was made from diluting cheap squash.
friendly staff, excellent breakfast, well designed hotel
no dinner facilities
Great location in a wonderful alentejo town. Fantastic breakfast and very welcoming staff. Our second time there and we will be back. You must try the porco preto or bacalhau at Safari restaurant a few doors down.
The beds were a bit hard for me.
Very good breakfast, nice location and good value for money.
spacious, pleasant, spotless clean well decorated rooms; the breakfast was fantastic; the hotel (rennovated 18th century residence ??) is some 400m away from the Paço Ducal palace and offers a nice pool in an internal patio; could easily be rated 5-star; EXCELLENT VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY !!!!
Location is OK
Few personnel, hardly speaking english Cold breakfast room
Very cozy little hotel, ideal for a calm stay.
The hotel seems fantastic. We stayed there on the 10th of November (low season). Location is perfect (Vila Viçosa is samll but beautiful and under- explored on the Portuguese touristic map). We might have been the only tourists in Vila Viçosa these days! Restaurants nearby are excellent (recommend the safari restaurant a few steps ahead the hotel entrance).
A new multi-level building is hiding behind this old facade. The decoration is modern and colorful, with some antique touches. The bedroom was recently redecorated but the bathroom seemed aged. Still, this hotel was much more expensive than other better ones in Portugal.
There was a weird fried bacon smell throughout the whole hotel when we arrived in the evening. In the morning, we realized that we can actually smell whatever is cooking in the kitchen on the lower floor, so this time it smelled like someone was frying onions. Also the room might have been a smokers room, but after leaving the window open for a few hours at least that smell was gone.
The hotel is easy to find as Vila Vicosa is not a large place. The lady at reception was wonderful and even was patient enough to let us practice our Portuguese even though she spoke perfect English. Our room was fantastic and the modern, clean-designed interior of the hotel was great. Great pool and lounge area and since we were there in early October we almost had the place to ourselves. Great breakfast and many restaurants in close proximity for dinner. The staff typify the helpfulness and friendliness of the Portuguese people even in these hard times. The hotel is perfect as a base to explore the marble towns of Vila Vicosa, Borba and Estremoz and the amazing surrounding Alentejo wine region.
The only downside is that we only stayed one night at this wonderful hotel....
Smart, modern and well equipped rooms in attractive new building added onto an historic one. Helpful staff.
Noise carried up from bar/outside areas to room late at night. Some difficulty parking near by if two hotel spaces are taken
Staff extremely helpful, tasteful decoration, good range of food at breakfast, good access to all attractions of town, good value for money.
Breakfast was very good
Exceptional stay - receptionist warm, friendly and welcoming, room and facilities top class, pool, design, décor could not fault and breakfast best ever selection
friendly charming reception. english spoken. spacious room. clean good pool with stylish seating area and bar. quick free internet. excellent bathroom. central location in historic town,but very quiet. excellent breakfast. parking in the street no problem. useful base to visit the other "marble" towns
Simple, clean and modern design in the room and in the public areas of the hotel. There was a balcony in the room. The hotel was beautifully laid out and creates a very relaxed atmosphere.
Missed having a small fridge in the room. We stayed there for 4 nights and breakfast could have more variety. But we really did still like the hotel very much!
Hotel looks great and is very clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is quite good and has local products. Overall, it's one of the best hotels that I've ever stayed in.
It doesn't have an elevator and all the suites are on the first floor.
