This wonderful hotel is located in the mountain half way to the highest mountain peak in Portugal: Serra da Estrela. It is an old Sanatorium that has been restored in 2014 to serve as an hotel.

An excelent hotel, up the hill with a breathtaking view. The room was excelent as well as the indoor swiming pool. The restaurant is not bad, but is not excellent - could be a little bit better to meet the standards of all the rest. The staff is beyond great, really nice and totally available.

We had quite an adventure driving there, up some of the steepest city roads imaginable, but when we arrived in the clouds, it was like a blast from the past, an elegant old style hotel, shining in the peaks, the elevator and the hallways reminded me of movies from the thirties, it was immaculately clean and everything was fabulous

Quiet, peaceful and ideal for taking time off to relax. The view is amazing, the staff is very kind and friendly, the indoor pool is awesome after a freezing weather, and the room is reasonable. The bar has great toasts which is the ideal alternative to a very expensive restaurant. Having snow probably makes the hotel looking even better.

The Pousada is a beautiful building and the views are just stunning. Enjoy the large balconies on the middle floors with loungers in the sun. The stars at night are beautiful and the view in the morning as the sun comes up are breath taking. Lovely comfy beds, duvets and pillows. We stayed two nights and had a wonderful stay....

It kept its Spa function (swimming pool, sauna, Turkish bath, gymnasium and massage parlour). The rooms are well equipped but the decoration is a bit dull. Everywhere you...
