Hotel Residencial Trovador
Ranked #4 of 9 Hotels in Tomar
Reviewed 13 June 2014

I have stayed at this family ran hotel 3 times now. The staff are always friendly & helpful. Rooms are basic but clean & represent excellent value for money. Buffet breakfast is good quality. Hotel is close to town & the Convent of Christ can be seen & accessed easily on foot. Close to the bus station & we took the bus to Fatima.

Good value for money, clean and the towels in the bathroom were changed daily.
Good location - 5 minutes walk to the town center and 15 minutes to the Convent of Christ.
Breakfast acceptable.
Acoustic isolation, not very good.
Free parking.

We were staying for the Festival do Zêzere Music Festival and although the hotel was a fair step from the Convento de Cristo, where most of the (magical) concerts took place, it is near both the bus and train stations, and the law courts (!)
Rooms are plain but clean and air conditioned, furniture adequate, and bathroom has a bidet and daily fresh towels. Tv is old but I found National Geographic in English (subtitled in Portuguese). Looked after by pleasant staff - but English is not a great strength!

Breakfast - local rolls, honey and fruit were good, and provision of cold water fountain. Horrible Nescafé machine, hot water for fruit and exotic teas (I like English Breakfast tea, made with boiling water). Cheese, denatured ham, flavoured yoghurts, jams, butter etc were all no more than adequate.
Good value and comfortable, but not luxurious.

First about advantages:
- good location (5 minutes by foot to the town centre, 15 minutes to Convent of Christ);
- free parking nearby;
- breakfast included (but it is really poor).
Disadvantages:
- poor breakfast (after having breakfast we went to the Delta cafe located next door and had second breakfast);
- old and tasteless furniture;
- there were ants in our room (we left a piece of cheese on the table and discovered an ants trail to it in the morning).
Resume: staying here could be reasonable only if you need a place just to spend one night and then leave.

You are in the city but away from all the downtown fuss. It's very easy (and free) to park near the hotel. The size of the twin bedded room was ok not to big neither that small. The towels were changed every day and the room cleaned also. The walls may be a bit thin but that wasn't a problem, noone was partying on the other side. The free breakfast was good, you have cakes, bread, croissants, you can also make your own cappucino or expresso. There's also free wifi everywhere, a vending machine near the reception, AC in the rooms, an elevator and town maps at the reception desk.

Just didn't like the bathrooms in the breakfast area, some people don't know how to close a door...

If I ever need a place to stay in Tomar I'll be back to Trovador!

Room Tip: I satyed in room 204 and enjoyed it

The rooms are clean and the breakfast is so so but I would not go back there. I am thinking that since it is close to the bus station that these are their cliental. There is no restaurant and breakfast is not good.

Trovador is a basic hotel in Tomar that is clean, provides free parking, breakfast, and a safe place to sleep.

The rooms are somewhat spartan, but the bed, furniture, linens, and bathroom are clean and a good value for the price.

A benefit to the Trovador is that it is across the street from the Train/Bus station, which means finding it is easy if you are driving, and if you're traveling by train, it is a short walk.

Breakfast was a standard european breakfast but definitely enough to fuel you for the the day before heading out to the sights!

Reception was basic and unremarkable.

This is an excellent hotel for travelers who spend their time outside sightseeing and use the hotel for a hot shower, good night sleep, and breakfast.

The only drawback was that the walls were a bit thin - we could hear several different guests taking showers/baths during the night and water flowing down pipes. This is something that can be easily remedied with earplugs, but travelers should keep it as a consideratino.
