This was bit of a strange experience in a huge and mostly empty building which felt like it could have an Agatha Christie movie set in it...if it was done in a 1980's style! It's hard to explain why we were a bit underwhelmed by our stay as any issues were dealt with quickly and efficiently, the rooms were on... More

We stayed at Grand Hotel do Luso last week. The location is very convenient to visit places nearby (Bussaco –5 minutes; Mealhada – 15 minutes; Coimbra – 30 minutes; Figueira da Foz – 45 minutes). Free parking is available in the front of the hotel. Rooms were spacious and clean. There seemed to be an issue with toiletries and linen... More

Stayed there for one night but would have enjoyed staying longer. Spacious comfortable room, large bathroom, minibar in room, free parking, and an atmosphere of a "grand" hotel. Didn't try out the swimming pool or the spa, but if one is in Luso for a longer stay then this is definitely a good choice .

The Grande Hotel do Luso was one of my childhood hotels and my memories were of a grand, elegant and classic hotel a little bit lost in time, bringing back an old Portugal. All those feelings came back this month... I revisited the hotel to find it renovated, but still classic and elegant, but still from another time. I would... More

Very good remodeling, maintaining the old spirit of this grand hotel. The 50m swimming pool is still there and with wonderful refreshing water. The staff is magnificent and very polite. On the not so bright side, the breakfast should have more options, but is quite good.

I stayed in the hotel for five nights in August of 2013. The weather was perfect and the hotel is quite nice. They have renovated rather recently - they chose dark colors for the lobby and for the sitting room - kind of somber for a lobby - but it is clean and appealing. The staff at the front desk... More
