Wonderful Stay, Great Staff, Amazing Ambiance
Posted Mar 22, 2016
Upon entry to the hotel, the first view is of the wonderfully restored cloister . When we checked in at this hotel, the front desk man showed us to our room. The first room we passed through was immense with gorgeous antique furnishings. This led to a sitting room, again wonderfully furnished and finally to the hallways where the guest rooms were located. Fortunately for us, our room was the farthest room from the desk. This allowed us to be awed by the stunning beauty of this hotel each time we left our room. Just looking down the immense hallway with its 25 foot arched ceiling was breathtaking every time. Our room was located right next to a stone terrace (complete with fountain) overlooking the lush, sculptured gardens. Our room was lovely, a restored monk's cell complete with an alcove window. The restaurant was beautiful as was the lounge (complete with stone fireplace). The front deskman was fabulous. He was extremely proud of both the hotel (and well versed in it's history) and the city of Guimaraes. He bent over backwards to assist us in every possible way. My only regret was that we only stayed here 1 night. In hindsight, I would have stayed as long as possible! This hotel was an EXCELLENT value and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic ambiance.
