Inside the walls of the city, so reasonably close to everything. We were put in an annex and had to climb two steep flights of stairs. Place was very quiet.

Kind Manager
Actually I did not stay--I booked 1 night in order to leave my luggage during sightseeing (was on the way from Lisbon to Estremoz--since there is no coin locker at the bus terminal). Convenient location. When the manager (?) found out that I am not staying overnight, he charged me only 5 Euro instead of 16.

2/5 Poor

Sad face IconDisliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The receptionist did not ask us for any identification when we checked in. He asked us to pay in cash upfront. Then he took us to a different building nearby, showed us to our room on the second floor. We had booked a TWIN BED room and was given a 4-bed dormitory room. It had no safe or decorations as it is being listed on this website obviously because it was not the room we had booked. On a different note breakfast was good and location was great. Very disappointed indeed.
