Way Cool
The location inside a historic fort is way cool. Grounds and buildings well maintained and room clean and comfortable. Friendly and responsive staff that was a pleasure with which to interact. The best breakfast of all the hotels we stayed while in Portugal. Easy walking distance to the entire historic center of Chaves, but on the fringe so very quite at night. Excellent experience.

Beautiful place and excellent service and stay
We stayed at this place for one night and it was the best option. It is located in the city centre and it is a beautiful place to stay. This is a Forte with walls like a castle all around. It is worth visiting itself even if you are not staying. The rooms are very well decorated and very comfortable. The rooms have free WiFi, free car parking, there's a SPA and leisure areas with snooker, and different board games. Take some time to visit the leisure area because it is very nice. There's also a church inside the walls. The breakfast is very standard with different things but they don't take advantage of the region to offer local organic jams, fruits, etc. Overall the stay was excellent.
