It was my third stay in Rianha d Amelia. As usually very friendly reception staff, nice and clean room with air con, forty channels in TV and quick internet. Private parking with a lot of space. Simple but tasty breakfasts and great dinners. Hotel in the centre with easy access to any place of the city.

It must be said that this hotel is a little "faded", but the agreeable staff told us that upgrades were in the pipelines after having severed their links with Best Western at the start of the year. If you're considering staying here, set your expectations appropriately - this isn't 5-star luxury, but nor does it charge 5-star prices. So I...

This is a three stars hotel which doesn’t have anything special to point out neither any very negative aspect to underline. Although the prices are not very high considering the quality the hotel provides with more hotel competition in the city the prices would probably come down in some periods/months.

Nice, correct hotel in a lonely city in the middle of Portugal. There is not much choice in Castelo Branco, but it is ok to stop there. I spent one night, very cheap, very friendly people. Room a bit old fashioned, but ok. Breakfast was not of super quality. You can park the car for free in the hotel garage....
