“A very pleasant place”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

The Alegre is old and old-fashioned where that is nice (in the rooms, furniture and decorations) and modern where it matters (in the bathrooms and with excellent wi-fi). It has a very comfortable lounge with a fireplace (that was burning each evening during my visit), a nice small swimming pool, good private parking, a pleasant garden, and an excellent location between the town and the forest park. Best of all were the friendly and helpful people there. Breakfast is simple but adequate. I will be keen to stay there again.

Room Tip: I enjoyed a corner room, number 106, with views of the little garden and the town of Luzo.

Very simple and basic hotel. Nice people. The time stopped to go from the 80th besides the internet. typical simple breakfast. Good value for the money. very close to the forest. Not much to do in the village.

The house was very nice in the old typical portugueese house. The room was very clean and the area very calm. The localisation was good: near from the bus stop, from the therm, and the wood of Buçaco, eveything available by foot.
They spoke also french. The owners were very polite.
Breakfast was good, the swimming pool in the garden very nice, and calm. Perfect for a relaxing stay! ask for the bedroom with a terrasse!

Spent 2 nights with our 12 year old son here. The ambience is castle-like, very calm and relaxing. Free parking right behond the hotel. Sweet and friendly old man speaking several languages. Wonderful pool area, lush and flowery and surprisingly with an bar adjacent. Perfectly located in Luso, 3 min walk to the best restaurants. Wifi free, but not working in every room due to thick walls. Breakfast simple, and but still enjoyable since there were winderful fresh flowers on the tables and tje room classy. I would highly recommend this hotel. We paid 65 Euro for a three-bed room.

Very good value: trad decor, but the hotel has been well modernised. It has a marvelous position and beautiful gardens with pool, and the staff are friendly and informative. Handy for walking in the forest, and great for chilling out. We had a quick look at the other hotels in our 2 days here, and we reckon we made the best choice.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are beautiful.

This is rated by the tourist board as 2 star. This is accurate, unlike the description from the hotel on booking.com, as the room we had was not spacious and free wi/fi is only in the hallway, not everywhere as stated. While charming and clean it is an older building with a musty smell probably due to the dampness of the elevation. If it is warm enough to open the windows, then this would be ok. Breakfast is basic but enough, with fresh fruit. The advertised bar was closed - appeared to be under renovations. At 50€ per night it seems overpriced in comparison to the quality and prices of other places we stayed in Potugal.

We loved the Alegre. Manuel is the perfect host in this beautiful mansion turned hotel. Stayed for 5 nights and we loved every minute. Luso is lovely and I would not consider anywhere else to stay. Comforting and comfortable. Well kept, great breakfast and just old world lovely all around!
