Very simple and basic hotel. Nice people. The time stopped to go from the 80th besides the internet. typical simple breakfast. Good value for the money. very close to the forest. Not much to do in the village.

The house was very nice in the old typical portugueese house. The room was very clean and the area very calm. The localisation was good: near from the bus stop, from the therm, and the wood of Buçaco, eveything available by foot. They spoke also french. The owners were very polite. Breakfast was good, the swimming pool in the garden...

Spent 2 nights with our 12 year old son here. The ambience is castle-like, very calm and relaxing. Free parking right behond the hotel. Sweet and friendly old man speaking several languages. Wonderful pool area, lush and flowery and surprisingly with an bar adjacent. Perfectly located in Luso, 3 min walk to the best restaurants. Wifi free, but not working...

Very good value: trad decor, but the hotel has been well modernised. It has a marvelous position and beautiful gardens with pool, and the staff are friendly and informative. Handy for walking in the forest, and great for chilling out. We had a quick look at the other hotels in our 2 days here, and we reckon we made the...

This is rated by the tourist board as 2 star. This is accurate, unlike the description from the hotel on booking.com, as the room we had was not spacious and free wi/fi is only in the hallway, not everywhere as stated. While charming and clean it is an older building with a musty smell probably due to the dampness of...

We loved the Alegre. Manuel is the perfect host in this beautiful mansion turned hotel. Stayed for 5 nights and we loved every minute. Luso is lovely and I would not consider anywhere else to stay. Comforting and comfortable. Well kept, great breakfast and just old world lovely all around!

My wife and I arrived in Luso, with no preconceptions about where we would stay for a couple of days. After walking around the town - smaller than the guide books had led us to think (it took us 15 minutes see most of what there was) - we liked the look of the Hotel Alegre and booked in. The...

Although this is called an hotel, is actually a large villa converted to separate rooms. Great character. Very close to the centre of Luso, and not far from the lovely (if peculiar) Palace at Bussaco. Also only about 20 minute drive from Mealhada with its famous and unmissable Leitao restaurants. The price was very reasable and included an excellent breakfast....

The hotel is located 100m from the town centre, the building is an old refurbished house. The staff is extremely friendly, probably they won't speak fluent english but they'll try. The rooms are nice, with high ceilings and Classic furniture. It has a swimming pool with a nearby bar serving cold drinks and a small pool for kids. The breakfast...

We booked this hotel after reading the reviews, but we were very disappointed. The building is impressive and the swimming pool is pleasant, but the rest is rather disappointing. The rooms are quite old-fashioned, cheaply furnished and could do with a bit of cleaning (the smell of dust coming from the carpets is quite strong). The breakfast room is nice,...
