This hotel has a good location which is just opposite to the bus station, nearby grocery shops and restaurants. 5mins walk to the Cathedral. Facilities are good. Good selection if breakfast. Great staff. Good value to your money.

It's a nice, not so big old-school hotel, maybe even better than it categorization of 3 stars would suggest. Had a room on the first floor overlooking entrance. Room was partially refurbished recently, including bathroom. Very clean and nicely situated just few steps from the sanctuary. There is also a souvenir shop in the lobby.

This hotel is situated in a quiet area of Fatima, in the shade of trees. His charm, staff and style, give a pleasant stay. I liked the rich breakfast buffet, as well as the friendly staff. Nearby there are nice restaurants and shops. The shrine is a 10-minute walk. I'd love to be back again.

Walking distance from bus station so you doing have to deal with your bag for long. Walking distance to everything, sanctuary, shops, restaurants. Clean, safe, comfortable rooms. Friendly staff that was more informative than the visitors office at sanctuary. Very pleased with the option.

I stayed at the Sao Jose the week of May 3 to May 9. I have no complaints about this hotel. It is just minutes from the Sanctuary. I purposely picked this week because there were going to be thousands of people there for the May 13th anniversary and I wanted to avoid that. The Hotel itself is in good...

This hotel has many good features. Close to the shrine and the bus terminal. Very pleasant staff, always willing to help, nice big room and bathroom. The food was not up to much, though. Breakfast was plain and boring, same every day and repetitive music playing. The whole area outside is undergoing extensive building works, so it is very dusty...

The hotel is very close to the sanctuary and easy to reach. The rooms are a bit "oldish", but fully acceptable and confortable. The bathroom is really spacious. The restaurant is good. I think this accommodation offers a really good quality/price ratio.

Within 5 minutes you'll be standing in front of the Sanctuary. The city of Fatima is queit when you're not visiting on the "holy" dates (12-13 of the months may untill october). Therefore there are not many restaurants open and you'll have to eat in the hotel. In case of Sao Jose it was not a problem, because it was...
