We couldn't find the hotel we were looking for in Coimbra, so we kept driving and found this gem in Lousa. Fantastic old hotel with modern facilities including a pool. We had dinner in the dining room and had a great meal. Friendly staff and pleasant village to use as a base to explore this region.

We spent two nights in the new wing in January so it was quiet for sleeping. The room was modern and quite well equipped though the television was very old (not a problem for us as we didn't switch it on). There is a problem with black mold around the windows which needs sorting out as it could affect people...

Dear Sir, Thank you so much for your preference and for your comments. They were attentively read and we are going to try to improve the issues - in particular the bitter coffee (nothing can be worst than this). We hope to welcome you back again in Lousã - in Spring or Summer. Kind regards, The General Manager

We stayed for two nights and one day, mainly to go walking in the hills behind the town. Our GPS took us straight to the hotel but we drove around the block twice before we realized we had arrived; the street is narrow and the hotel is not immediately obvious. There is ample off-street parking at the rear of the...

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your comments. Unfortunately as we are a protected building we cannot put outside indications of the hotel, and that is why sometimes our guests get confused and do not find immediatly the property. But we try to minimize this with service and a nice accommodation. Hopefully we understand that you enjoyed your stay...

We stayed three nights at Palacio da Lousa, in the old part of the hotel. The rooms and common areas in that part are very nice - it is a rather intimate size palace, very pleasant. Arriving at the hotel, the reception will direct you to their ample free parking around the back. Really enjoyed the large outdoor pool, nice...

Really an old palace! HUGE room, great breakfast, very nice and reasonably priced restaurant in the hotel. Lovely pool (or was a bit to cold in October). You can begin the amazing walk to the schist villages literally right outside the door. Great price for what you get; make sure to ask for the old part of the hotel.

Located in the centre of Louse, in a maze of narrow streets it didn't seem to have great access for cars, but we easily found an on street parking spot nearby.

We stayed at the palace for two nights in August 2016 while on our honeymoon. The fresh well laid out continental breakfast with an overwhelming assortment of local fruits, cheeses, honey, hams, buns and so much more was fabulous. We were treated like royalty, the standard of service was exceptional, no doubt as a result of the excellent leadership of...

This was a good value room. What we particularly liked was the variety of different areas to relax. Outside there was the pool, garden and patio areas, whilst indoors several lounges, so it was always easy to get some personal space. The room and bathroom was fine though the shower not the best. Breakfast was buffet was very good. I...

We stayed at the Palacio da Lousã for a wedding. We had a large charming room in the old part of the hotel that used to be a palace. I felt like a prince leaving in the 18th century. The staff was very accommodating and Paulo the manager did a great job making sure everything goes smoothly.
