You cannot find a more perfect hotel location in Guarda. Less than one block from hotel is the famous (1390-1540) Se' huge granite Catherdral. Within a few feet of Hotel Santos is banking, shopping, Tourist Info Center, flower shop, wine & food markets, and tons of small family "restaurantes". Staff was extremely welcoming albeit with limited english. WiFi super strong...

Very nice interior to the hotel, but the room was a little too warm and we could not open the windows. Great central location for walkabouts. Plenty of good restaurants nearby and in-house breakfast was good, varied and plentiful. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only parking seems to be on the streets and while we were lucky to park very...

On our way down to Albufiera in January we spent one night in the Hotel Santos in Guarda, it was our first visit to Guarda. The hotel and the staff are excellent. The Hotel was part of the town’s fortifications. Guarda is an old fortified hilltop town, the highest town in Portugal. Much of the old stonework has been retained...

This hotel was so lovely in so many ways. The welcome we got was lovely and the sympathetic renovation of the property was refreshing. It was comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We are looking forward to a stay there in 2017.

Great family run hotel. Very relaxed. The hotel is incorporated into the city walls. Well worth a visit to see how some architects can have good ideas !!! Fast food can be eaten at Vivachi Shopping centre, a 5 min walk away.

I will have to be careful with this review of Hotel Santos, or readers will think I'm related to the owners, or a business partner... I'm not, in both counts, but what I have to say about it may give the wrong impression. The place is really a fantastic surprise in Guarda, a beautiful town in its own. The place...

Stayed just the one night while touring. Excellent from the word go. Staff friendly, polite, and very helpful - particularly as my Portuguese is poor. Incredible building that includes part of the old town wall as its rear. Very sympathetically and stylishly incorporated. Room spacious clean and modern. The town is mainly modern run of the mill concrete but the...

This was a pleasant surprise, an absolutely sweet hotel built into old city walls. Lovely rooms, very quiet and clean, and an absolutely AMAZING included breakfast- they just kept coming with more food and coffee! Family run by a lovely couple- HIGHLY recommend this if staying/passing through Guarda. Located right in the upper old town, not overrun with tourists. Free...
