The staff were amazing and always ready to help, the hotel perfect with books at every corner. The food and wine were exquisite. We'll have to go back.
This place has a truly unique atmosphere. I loved the interior with books everywhere! It's a heaven for any bookworm. Excellent dinner in the hotel restaurant. What stole my heart were the books casually left in the hotel room! I let myself indulge into a good read about astronomics :)
The only disadvantage is curtain instead of a door to the bathroom in the rooms.
The decor was very unique
The pillows were too thin.
The books display idea is good The hotel's location within Obidos is nice, just walking distance and it is located in an old building making it a nice authentic experience. Breakfast was provided - some nicely cut fruit, 2-3 cold cuts, breads.
The hotel overall left us with an unmet expectation. Check-in At check-in the staff wasn't particularly friendly, not a smile, not a suggestion around what to do or see in the village or the area. Room The room was very very basic and the finishes were rough, low standard and much below expectation. We understand corky design and being modern and edgy, but this was not that. My biggest complaint that the room had a moist, musty and moldy smell. There was a wall-to-wall carpet that is impossible to keep clean, making me feel even more uncomfortable. The bathroom had no door just a curtain. Overall The entire experience felt low standard and poorly executed. The hotel's photos portray a much nicer, cleaner look&feel that is not reality.
This is such a lovely and comfortable hotel, and the literary theme makes it extra fun for book lovers like me. I enjoyed a great gin and tonic and the dinner was delicious. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The staff were very helpful. It was a short walk to explore Obidos within the city walls, so the location was perfect.
Our only complaint was that the bathroom on our second morning had a strong odor due to the typical (probably ancient) Portuguese plumbing, where odors waft up through the pipes. This happens in older properties sometimes and is not unique to this hotel. It might be helpful to provide some air freshening products in the bathrooms, or install electric extractor fans.
With a stay at The Literary Man in Obidos, you'll be within a 10-minute drive of Obidos Castle and Barata Feyo Museum. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk.
