A lovely and atmospheric hotel in a wonderful vill
The actual space, rooms of the hotel are so unique and atmospheric. Helpful staff, excellent breakfast - great value for money.
Not an issue for us, but there is no wifi throughout the hotel, but you need to go to specific hot spots if you want to access the internet via the hotel free wifi.
Location is perfect, but in such a small town, any place would be well located.. Great breakfast, with huge portion of scrambled eggs.. It's a pity though they refused to make fried eggs for me, even though they prepared fresh eggs for every person separately. Just scrambled eggs available apparently :)
It was difficult to breathe, especially when you just got in. It is an old place, and the air circulation is definitely not the best. It was the first place ever that I had problems breathing. Also, the whole hotel smells like varnish, due to something they use to clean the floors - whenever I smell such strong smell, I always think the staff of the hotel want to hide something. One more thing, the hotel was built to be a convent, but it never actually became one. I wanted to stay there because I've never slept in a convent, so I was a bit disappointed to hear the real story of this place. Oh, and I am incredibly suprised it is a 4-star hotel.
Conveniently located for Obidos and surrounding area
Large rooms. Wonderful history. Ideal location for seeing the castle and walled city.
A little difficult to find at first but that added to the fun.
Lovely facility in a great location!
It was close to Obidos, very clean and staff was friendly.
Credit card machine was not working and had to pay in cash
Very beautiful and classic hotel. Friendly staff.
There is no heater in our room. It could be very cold at night.
Overl style of the hotel was very good and the room felt rustic and beds very comfortable. Only down side was the smell of drains that wafted up through the bathroom over night but did confine itself to the bathroom. Breakfast very good value and the waiter (who speaks 7 lanuages and has worked over Europe for 17 yrs) was very good and friendly.
Smell of drains in the bathroom on the odd occasion.
Too many insects, flies and mosquitos.
This is a very special place. It is an old house well decorated in an old fashion but very nice and with avery nice ambient and relation with the personal.
No, no comi alli por lo que no puedo decir nada de la comida....
Beautiful rooms, good location, pleasant helpful staff.
