Hotel Covilhã Jardim
This bright, modern family-run place sits on the quietest corner of the municipal gardens. All rooms have leafy views of the park or sweeping panoramas of the surrounding mountains (room 10 has both!), and one is wheelchair-accessible...
Convento Da Provenca
Mother Superior may not have approved of this luxury sleeping option, but we do. This renovated former convent has an austere white exterior, but its interior is another story...
Hotel Casa Da Calçada Relais & Chateaux
Oozing class and boasting every creature comfort, this 16th-century palace (rebuilt following Napoleon’s destructive campaign) rises royally above the Ponte de São Gonçalo...
Only one block from the praça (town square), this charming and well-renovated place has bright, stylish rooms with boveda (brick-arched) ceilings and carved bedheads. Bathrooms are gleamingly tiled. Prices are significantly less outside high season.
Pousada De Estremoz Rainha De Santa Isabel
In the restored former palace, this lavish pousada offers spacious rooms with antique furnishings and views over the Alentejo plains. There are lovely palace gardens, a pool with views and common areas set with museum-quality tapestries.
Albergaria Do Calvario
Elegant (yet unpretentious), friendly (yet not in your face), comfortable (but not awkwardly can't-put-your-feet-up-uberluxurious), this place has an ambience and je ne sais quoi that travellers adore...
Challet Fonte Nova Guest House
Set amid pretty gardens, this elegant and charming 19th-century chalet has grand common areas with gleaming wood floors, carpets and period furnishings...
Guesthouse Casa Pombal
Hidden down a narrow lane near the university, this winning, Dutch-run guest house squeezes tons of charm into a small space. The cosy wood-floored rooms are simple, fresh and brightly coloured, and a couple of attic eyries boast superb views...
Figueira da Foz
In an old, pink town house, this top-of-the-line hostel offers small, attractive rooms, plush quilts, free wi-fi, a great bar out back, and a nice shared kitchen and barbecue for self-caterers...
Vila Sao Vicente Boutique Hotel
This peaceful, classically decorated boutique-style hotel has handsome rooms with polished-wood floors. It’s a welcome relief from the town’s theme-park atmosphere.
Hotel Turismo Miranda
Miranda do Douro
Offering terrific comfort for a modest price, this newer place opposite the turismo features large, spotless rooms – most including a separate sitting room – with cable TV, minibars and marble bathrooms...
Hotel Santa Comba
On the main square, this smart place opened in 2004 and has clean rooms overlooking the square. There’s disabled access and a pleasant dining room.
Hotel Dos Terceiros
On a quiet pedestrian street near Praça da República, this guest house has great deals on recently repainted and updated rooms overlooking a small square. Most rooms have one full and twin bed each, and can sleep up to three people.
Hotel Da Nazare
Though it's in a modern high-rise, this place has more class than most of Nazaré's options, with tastefully appointed rooms, many with at least oblique views to the sea. Or wait until the morning - the top-floor breakfast room has panoramic vistas.
Hotel Grao Vasco
This handsome, modern granite hotel is set back in leafy grounds above the Rossio. Rooms are properly plush, though a little shy of luxurious.
Hotel Sao Joao De Deus
Spanish-owned and operated since 2004, this is Elvas’ grandest hotel. It’s a pleasant, although not always sympathetic, conversion of a 17th-century convent...
Boasting fine views of the Rio Corgo canyon, this central, modern, midrise business hotel has well-appointed if unexciting rooms, all with large verandahs.
Aguas Do Geres Hotel *** Termas & Spa
In a grand fin de siècle building, this slightly upmarket place has decent spacious, carpeted rooms with high ceilings and modern decor that don’t live up to the exterior. The hotel also runs the termas and offers special packages.
Hotel Mestre De Avis
Fronted by curlicue ironwork, this renovated town house has bright rooms on a quiet cobbled street in the town centre. Interiors are a strange mix of modern and antique, but it’s a solid-value option.
Rooms at this seafront hotel are brighter, frillier and airier than the musty and lugubrious halls might suggest. Bathrooms are clean and nicely tiled, and the two corner rooms (11 and 21) have little balconies with great ocean views.
With views of Covilhã’s main square, this grand pink hotel in the heart of town has spotless, high-ceilinged, old-style hotel rooms with bathtubs and good hot water...
Covilha Parque Hotel
Ten floors of uninspired but comfortable rooms enjoy nice city views in this modern apartment block next to the turismo. Internet is available but expensive.
