    It is like living within a museum. Excellent construction over an old monastery and fort. The archeological museum is steps ways. Nice views of the city and the river below. Ample parking.

    As is the case with many Pousadas, the Pousada Castelo de Alcacer do Sal is a destination in itself. It’s situated on a commanding hill site which has been inhabited since Paleolithic times. It was a Phoenician trading post before becoming the center of a flourishing Roman fortress city at the beginning of the Christian Era (which became a Moorish fortress after the Islamic conquest of present day Portugal and a Christian fortress during the “reconquest” of Portugal. A must-visit national archaeological museum, featuring both Roman and Islamic eras, is situated beneath the Pousada. The interior of the Pousada tastefully integrates its history and beautiful views of the distant countryside with modern and comfortable rooms. The

    Novel setting inside the walls of the castle and lovely views, although the interiors seemed a bit cold. The bar menu was a bit limited.

    Beautiful location

    Beautiful views over the river from the hotel if your room is on the right side. Good standard as expected. Not quite as interesting internally as I had expected. Rather “cold”.

    Have stayed in Pousadas in prior trips to Portugal and this one was just fabulous. The location gave us tremendous views of the surrounding area and town...and the ruins on the grounds was a wonderful bonus.

    A wonderful historic hotel in a cute village

    We were doing a self-guided bicycling trip across Central Portugal and had planned to stay here 1 night but like the hotel and area for biking so much we ended up staying 3 nights using the hotel as a base for long day rides to other nearby villages. We found it to be a very relaxing small country hotel in a charming old village. It was a medival castle turned 15th century convent that is now a boutique hotel that maintains its feeling as a castle. Many nice public sitting areas in the building and on the grounds (including a nice pool) to relax in with great views. Service was good... I had read many older reviews and was concerned but the staff was helpful in providing us with advice about where to ride in the area. The room was very clean and comfortable. The only downfall is no in-room internet and the free wifi in can be weak in some public areas.
