Location and sighseeing
The room was big and clean. The hotel stuff was friendly.
view was great , close to historical centre , nice large rooms it was very plain inside , and no free access to wireless , just an slow old computer in the lobby
The location, the staff and the size of the room. It needed a little more of insulation from both the inside and outside noise and also we got a very loud AC device, impossible to use during the evening.
The stuff was quite helpfull. There was a free parking in the hotel's garage. The building itself is an unattractive monster, and is situated near railway.
Great views from spacious room. Includes a plentiful breakfast and garage parking. Very good location to where explore the town. Next to a train station. Room a bit stark.
Good location! Staff very helpful with car parking. Clean rooms but a little small.
Hotel was very central
large rooms, nice view from the breakfast floor, friendly staff, restaurants nearby
I liked the fact that the hotel was close to the centre of Guimarães and the price. The room was also comfortable and clean. Breakfast was ok. I did not appreciate the look of the building, I mean, it's an old building I know but it could be renovated.
We loved the people who are doing the most they can for their guests enjoyment, the they were very friendly and helpfull .We got great tips for travelling in the area and we want to thank them for that. And the hotel is great' it was the highlight of our trip. that we stayed their only one night
Beautifully set along the river in the centre of an old town. Very friendly service, good cuisine.
Beautiful views, very friendly and helpful staff. There were a lot of seating areas in which to relax. The bar staff had good memories and the restaurant was lovely. Great breakfast. Rooms extremely comfortable. Slightly difficult to find
Helpfulness & Friendliness of Staff. Food very good. The hairdryer
the village, staff, restaurant and service and the room
Attractive location. Great value for money, particularly with the room up-grade. Attentive and polite staff.
Large comfortable room and friendly staff.
Very good service, excellent location
The staff pretty much let you do things your way, and all extremely helpful when needed.
this hotel/chateau is stunning. located in a small town- wine country is a 30 min drive. very peaceful. rooms were very bright and large. great food by the pool. amazing morning breakfast we did the tasting menu at the restaurant - bit old fashioned for our tastes. they are rated- but not the best meal we had. breakfast and pool food were great. staff were very friendly and helpful. a real pleasure for us
Great location and very warm welcome. Staff were most helpful with recommendations for places to dine and drink. Breakfast was excellent with several choices and served at table by a very friendly waiter.
The hotel is very well located, it is possible to walk from the bus station until there, it is in the historical center. The staff are very friendly and give lots of suggestion about where to go, what to see and so on.
Clean, comfortable and pleasant surroundings Nothing
nice room.interesting design. comfort and clean.staff exraordinary helpfull and polite.
Great location in centro with access for travelers with cars. Excellent friendly and helpful staff.
good location. pleasant, helpful staff. comfortable , spacious room. good breakfast! for a 4 star hotel they could have run to fresh , rather than instant coffee at breakfast! Entrance to hotel was not clear.
Excellent hotel, friendly staff, great location and descent breakfast. Located 10min walking from train station and on the main square. Great for tourism or business. The Internet connection is unsecured and connection reliability was very bad from my room, breaking mainly during internet telephony. A colleague had good connection from his room though.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Waiter at breakfast was fantastic. Room was large and comfortable and far exceeded my expectations for the price.
Rooms were spacious and very clean. Desk staff helpful and cheerful.The position of the hotel is perfect for exploring the area on foot. No it is very comfortable.
very nice hotel highly recommaned to any goal, either city trip or romance cann't realy think about anything wrong
Charming hotel. Hotel staff were decent as well as kind. Room furniture was enough and well renovated.
lovely cloister and pool. too large for my taste also, I was in the modern wing where rooms were not as attractive.
the magnificent setting and immaculate pousada
The pousada had beautiful stone walls, marble floors, wonderful great open halls filled with portraits and antiques, and a wonderful eating area. Families were welcome. The beds were totally inadequate; hard beds!!!!
Beautiful old building and setting. Helpful and friendly staff. Dreadful food served for dinner - inedible , grey, overcooked and reheated 'roast duck' as main course was appalling. Would not eat there again and would be wary of other pousadas for food.
Lovely place, wonderful tiles, beautiful gardens. It's a bit out dated and far from Guimaraes. Food at the restaurant could be better.
Staff is very, very friendly. Location is overwhelming, beautiful, one in a kind. Because of short-stay visitors (most guests stay only one, two or three days) the hotel only comes to life after 16:00. Nice and quite though !
The widely-spaced layout of the different facility areas detracts from the ambience expected.
Huge, comfortable, and well-appointed room in an old monastery. Great bathroom. Nice view over the city. Easy parking. Dinner was very ordinary and not a good value. The hotel is very hard to find (even with a GPS), although reasonably convenient to Guimaraes itself.
Silence of the room. It should have an elevator to carry the luggage. Ok, only 3 floors but even still should have one.
the breakfast you need an elevator
Nice quiet hotel. I was treated with my breakfast iny room at no charge, nice! After breakfast I went down to the Spa where I enjoyed the relaxing jacuzzi, steam, and sauna. All included. The water in the bath was adequately warm however not hot and I like a hot bath. Also the towel warmer wasn't working, minor issue.
Comfortable room; good bathroom. Good service, particularly in restaurant. Our balcony faced due south and needed some shade; balcony furniture rather tired, as is the garden. Restaurant prices are 'sky high', gourmand rather than gourmet. The prices for wine are extortionate; we bought local vinho verde at 3.30, price for exact same in restaurant 17.50! Second night we met other guests also 'Dining out'. Mini-bar same comment.
Excellent staff - couldn't be more helpful or nice, wonderful views. Overall charming. Small bathroom with poor light, and some humidity in ceiling. We went on a promotion, if I had payed full price I'd say rooms should be better, but for the price we paid it was excellent.
went hiking in the national park, to see a beautiful waterfall and on the way we encountered "wild" horses! the breakfast was rather poor and unprofessional looking(for the usual standard for pousadas)also we had a room in the old part of the hotel were the wood furniture was in urgent need the be repainted!!
Great view. It is an excelent place to rest.
the quiet location the food in the restaurant was not very good and too expensive
The restaurant and bar was expensive for the offer
Peace and quiet
good buffet style breakfast, value for money lack of parking
The reception staff were excellent and spoke good English. The breakfast times were extensive. The hotel was well located for a short walk into the town centre..
Location very good - close to bus station & town centre. Rooms were a bit dated and dark. Alot of noise from surrounding building works from very early in the morning.
Feels dirty. Just waited for the night to be over.
well placed to tour porto, doura valley etc
The breakfast included was first class. The room was nicely furnished and clean. I would use the Navarras again and would recommend it to friends. No bad points. It was perfect.
The external appearance was not good being based in a scruffy shopping centre on the edge of the old town. The description of the balcony aspect was not accurate as you could not see the river at all from the balcony which was very scruffy and not worth having.
The hotel is very well located, near Sao Goncalo Church and the famous bridge. Very clean, modern rooms, great beds and a fabulous breakfast. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to visit Amarante.
Friendly helpful staff. Balcony/outside space. Breakfast selection. Proximity to town centre. Lovely fresh orange juice ! Massive long term road works right outside hotel and under our balcony. Dust, noise, some risk. We should have been informed of this prior to arrival. Ambiguous situation regarding car parking which I stressed was very important. This exacerbated by but not because of road works.
The location was central to all the sites in Amarante. You could walk to most everything. The starkness and drabness of the bulding and the dimly lit, chilly breakfast room.
Great hotel, but a little far from the town's historic centre. It is in the new part of the town up a very steep hill. Views from balcony rooms good. Staff were helpful.
The location was good. near to the exits of the town. The room and the bathroom was confortable. The reception clark was correct and helpfull The atmosphire was of an emty hotel. only few gests. We we alone most of the breakfasts. No minibar in the room.Th elevastor very poor
The hotel is very centrally located within easy walking distance of the old bridge.
convenient location with easy walking access to town. Free reasonably safe parking in street outside. Good breakfast.
Clean rooms. Shower was fine. Desk staff was friendly. Good location. Carpeting was stained and worn down a bit. Slight urine smell in bathroom probably from old pipes. Breakfast was merely fair. TV had no English channels. A little expensive at 60 euros/night.
Excelent value for money - the rooms, with balcony, and service were adequately comfortable for a few days or a week. The hotel was very close to two good restaurants and also the old town centre and river. Parking proved to be no problem in October. he hotel bar was closed.
The hotel has faded considerably since I stayed there 15 years ago. It's a bit dismal. Our room with balcony was comfortable and the breakfast was generous. Good value. The location is close to highways, but the hotel is at first difficult to reach due to one-way streets. There is a fee for parking, but there is no restriction on street parking.
Within walking distance of Michelin restaurant so quite convenient.
Location was very good. Amaranto Restaurant was excellent. Poor lighting in halls, lobby and rooms. Hotel too dark.
Friendly staff, room was perfectly adequate, nicely furnished & clean, but by no means plush. Temperature of the shower was a little variable
The room with attached bathroom was clean and the bacony overlooking the train station was nice and big. We could even dry our clothes in the balcony, when the sun was out. Nothing.
staff were friendly, hotel was excellent value,clean,modern, well appointed and furnished. the hotel is right by the train Station with a fifteen minute walk into Guimaeres Historic Centre, there is a friendly inexpensive restaurant around the corner on Rua Dom Alfonso Henreques. I only wish the tourist office in the centre was as welcoming.
Nice hotel. We had top floor room with good view on historical center (I also checked the other side of building. It is on railways and hill, but isn't terrible). Breakfast wasn't rich, but ok. Not far from center and close to station. Helpful staff.
The Hotel staff That i stayed only a night
staff was friendly and helpful. room was nice and acceptable, with balcony. small breakfast has quality. location is very convenient, nearby the railroad station. excellent quality/price
The location was within walking distance of most sites and restaurants. There was also a good restaurant next door. There was free parking in a small lot across the street and street parking in front of the hotel if you're there at the right time. The owner was at the reception desk when we arrived and he was very welcoming, friendly, and gave us a lot of good information about Guimaraes and surroundings.
Close to the center. kind people. Clean rooms.
clean,convenient for the old town and station,friendly staff breakfast could do with a bit more choice,cereals,fruit,yogurt etc
Good breakfast , calm hotel with very nice people.
In terms of value for money i would say that this was one of the best hotels i have stayed in, it was clean, comfortable and the staff very helpfull
very nice place to stay short walk to town nothing to dislike
the hotel was very clean and offered big rooms, good breakfast (where you could ask for Portuguese coffee)
No tea and coffee making in room
Lack of warm atmosphere
Easy access to the town. Quality choice of breakfast including bacon & eggs. A bit on the "neuvo style" hence lacking character. Overpriced when compared with IBIS and others equally close. Small TV.
Kindness and attention of staff.
Face towels available - a rarity in Portugal Hard to operate card for power in room; plug in bathroom basin faulty and basin trendy but inadequate; both bedside lights on a single switch; room dark with slit window; no second chair in twin room; Room not really 4 star standard;hard to find by car if unfamiliar with town.
