    Perhaps the bar could be staffed, but I realise it does not seem to get used anyway.

    Newly refurbished rooms and public areas. Friendly helpful staff, decent enough 'continental' breakfast and in the centre of Fundao. Bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Have to ask for bar service at reception, but you can always get a drink. £31.00 a night!

    Unfortunately we had a terrible experience this time. Our room #206, had a drain blockage in the shower resulting in an unpleasant flooding experience with a subsequent bad smell. To top it up, the aircon didn’t work either and the bed was very uncomfortable. In summary a terrible experience. We won’t come back.

    Room 306 is a bit worn out and could be updated. Bathroom was decent, the bed was too soft. The elevator didn't work properly.

    Would have preferred a full size bed instead of two singles put together. But otherwise a nice room for the money.

    Clean, well located in the city center and friendly staff.

    There was nothing to dislike.

    Staff extremely helpful to the point they went out of their way to purchase soya milk, due to my allergy, so I could enjoy the inclusive breakfast. All staff we approached could speak good English. The room was lovely and spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this hotel on our travels through Portugal and highly recommend.

    Rooms were a bit dark. Friends air conditioning unit was a bit dubious. Think they were in the process of up-dating the bedrooms.

    Town centre hotel in a side street just off the main road. Don't know whether there was any private parking but we managed to park the motorbikes directly in front of the hotel reception. Corporate style hotel. Staff spoke good English. Huge comfy double bed- probably too big as it entailed rolling over several times to switch off both bed side lights! Good buffet breakfast with eating area bright and modern. Had a brilliant evening meal at restaurant Marisqueira Bocage a few doors down which served fantastic good value food- try the Picanaha.

    Nothing to 'not like'

    The staff were really friendly & helpful. There us a lot of refurbishment work taking place during the dasy which is to a good standard. Our room had already been completed. Spacious room (109), huge bed, good sized shower, air-con worked, central heating worked, 40+ channels on the TV if that's what you want. Center of Fundao, lots of Restaurants, Cafes, Shops, Museum, Arts, all nearby. Would recommend to anyone.
