For such a reasonable price, this was an excellently placed hotel in the centre of Tavira and two minutes (if that) away from all restaurants, coffee shops etc and historical Roman bridge. This is our third time in Tavira and probably not the last so we would use this hotel again as staff were also very polite and helpful. Hotel...

I would recommend this hotel, it's in a great location next to the river, with a great view of the Old town of Tavira. It's a modern bijou type hotel, very clean small rooms with balconies. The staff were great, helpful and informative about the area, restaurants etc. Also the breakfast had a good choice and plentiful.

The hotel was very conveniently located by the river in Tavira and had good quality working facilities. The receptionist went to some length to give us quite complicated directions on arrival that allowed us to locate the friends we were visiting in the town. With hindsight we should have tried to book a room at the front of the hotel...

We stayed here in October, excellent rating for this modern Hotel. Beautiful tranquil view of Rio Gilao. Walking distance to EVA bus terminal and train station. Across the river from the main tourist plaza.

Modern hotel with great staff. Nothing was to much bother to them. Wonderful views over the river and was very peaceful. Lift to all floors which was a boon considering my age. Breakfast was a good continental mix with toast as well. Lots of fresh fruit. Would return no bother.

Very central quiet hotel with brilliant views over the river to the town. Walking distance to everything. Very clean and reasonably priced. Would benefit from updating, but still very highly recommended.

Our two night stay at Princesa do Gilao was wonderful. Room 101 was clean, large by European standards with a large, comfortably firm almost king size bed and full-size bathroom that included a soaking tub/shower combination. Two sliding doors opened onto a great river view but I would recommend saving 10 euros per night and opting for a rear-facing and...

“ASk for a room that overlooks the river as against the quaint back streets of Tavira, due to early noise from the street behind.”
