This hotel must have been something during its heyday, 25-30 years ago. Solid wood doors and furniture and a gleaming glass and metal exterior. It is still satisfactory, but dimly lit and a bit musty if you are on a floor that is not in much use. The AC worked fine, the room is large but the carpets are in need of cleaning and the baths are older. It is very close, walking distance, to everything you want to see, 20 min. or so to the end of town, and there is a little trolley you can catch just inside the gate. The city is pretty and worth seeing. Try the restaurant just down the street in front of the hotel and station, Dois Amigos, Rua do Caires, 280. Got a great meal, which we split, wine and all for about 12 Euros for two, not each. Not a romantic getaway, but a good deal and the staff is very helpful. It was an overnight for us, so it is what I wanted, get in, park, see the city and sleep. The garage is tight to get out of, and you will need to pull up to the metal wall next to the entry door to get into the place, not much place to park. GPS took us past, but the place is just before the traffic circle at the station, on the right. Start looking when you see the station.
