We booked to stay in room 3, the smallest room at Fortaleza, expecting a tiny boutique room after having read online reviews.
After a relaxed and welcoming check in, we opened the door to find a beautiful, stylish room. The one off furniture and four poster bed added to the luxurious feel, with nice touches such as fresh flowers and quirky books. The bathroom was modern and clean with a great rain shower. The room was spotless and well maintained.
Breakfast was fantastic with a nice selection of fresh and perfectly cooked dishes- the muesli with curd was delicious!
We ate at Fortaleza both nights, enjoying mezze, salads, homemade burgers and good wine. The menu is small but there is a specials board that is updated daily. Service was relaxed but attentive.
Overall a great place to stay in the Fort and we would defiantly stay here again.
