Booking.com guest review guidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).

눉We parked on the street which was easy at the time we arrived but could have been tricky later in the day. It was not easy to find a convenient place to exercise our dogs.
눇This hotel had no problem accomodating our two medium sized labradoodles and the 5 euro / dog charge is reasonable. Very good breakfast, the restaurant was not open for dinner, but we found a convenient alternative down the street.

눉Maybe the pool could be a little bigger :) the floor of the halls are a bit slippery when wearing flip flops
눇It has a clean new design look mixed with the preserved antique look of the property. The room was very clean and fresh. The breakfast had a quite variety and it always had fresh alentejano bread! The staff was extremely nice, helpful and attentive! They made the stay very family and homely like. Great location, with a 5 minute walk from the center, 2 minute walk from the palace and mostly 5 to 10 minute walk from all the main points and good restaurantes

눉I'm an experienced traveller and quite critical. This was one of the best accommodations I've stayed in.
눇Fantastic central and absolutely quiet located accommodation. Only one minute from the overwhelming Royal Palace. Very attentive service. I was welcomed through Karine. She is very kind and always available to help you with any question. I could choose the room by myself. A tasteful breakfast was already included, beside the information at Booking. The room price was unbeatable advantageous. I just plan to return with my family. Vila Vicosa is a beautiful historical town, spotless clean with bloom Orange trees everywhere. In my eyes on the same level as the famous old Tuscany towns. Great restaurants and very welcoming people. A real insider tip!

눉Nothing in particular. We just missed an elevator for accessing our room because we went with our baby and had a stroller.
눇We stayed in a suite and the hotel provided two extra beds for our kids without any extra charge, what was very kind. The room was very nice and the hotel atmosphere is great (it is an old building that was rebuilt recently). The staff is very kind and the breakfast is very good (variety and quality). Location is also great, just nearby the palace.

눉the hotel is located on the city center but has a night club (with loud music and open doors) on the other side of the (tiny) street. Me and my husband could not sleep the entire night (from 1Am to 5AM). The hotel staff ask the club to low the music volume (which the club didn't do) but it was (and is not going to be) not enough. There must be a strong action from the hotel to pressure the municipality to take action and make the club comply with the noise and sound laws.
눇location (near all the major sightseeings), breakfast.

눉The decoration is weird, especially in the colour scheme. Our room was all black and white, but the common areas like the reception and the hallways had red furniture, purple couches, cyan pieces. Almost like they decorated the hotel with stuff they got in an auction. Our zebra-room was spacious and clean, but we found the blacks and whites not very comfortable. Really rough sheets on the bed. They offer private parking for 5€ a day, but parking is free on the street, so you would not need it should you find a spot.
눇The hotel is well located within the village, very close to the Palácio Ducal and a short walk away from Praça da República. Many restaurants in the area. I enjoyed breakfast, it had good products. Staff was helpful.

눉The breakfast was not the best I've had, it contained many of the items you would expect in a Portuguese hotel, I decided to try the scrambled egg and sausage, the sausage seemed to be some kind of hot dog from a tin can, really horrible. We were instructed how to get back into the hotel late at night as nobody would be at the desk, this was no problem except when we got to the main door there was a group of drunk kids at the door, one of which was vomiting on the steps (there is a bar/nightclub across the road)
눇The location of the hotel is very good, I found it to be clean and comfortable, the wifi was reliable and easy to access (no password or login needed)
