    The room is perfect!spacious,beautifully decorated!everything was very well designed. The breakfast was nice.the personnel was helpful and friendly!we recommend it definitely!

    In general it was very nice.the only thing is that we had to go down 2 floors by stairs which with our luggage was a bit difficult.

    This was one of our best accommodation in Portugal, sadly we stayed only 1 night. The rooms are super clean, comfortable, cozy and simply beautifully arranged. The staff was very friendly and helpful and breakfast excellent. Overall rating full 10 and hopefully we will come back one day!

    Clean. Good value. Good location not far from tourist sites and near restaurants. Breakfast has nice variety of cold foods (cereal, yogurt, rolls, fresh juice, meat, cheese). Nice staff.

    The bed was very firm - we prefer something a little less hard. The shower can spray over the top of the enclosure if you hang it up and it is on full force. Parking is on the street - we were there on a weekend so it was available and free but we do not know about other times. Note that the double room we had was on the top floor so the ceiling was slanted and the only windows were skylights.
