Fabulous 8.6 From 139 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Beautiful view from the top floor buffet.
We were able to walk into the older part of town, but it is at least six blocks to reach the edge of the tourist area. The hotel has a free parking garage. The Wi-Fi was good. The breakfast buffet included lots of fruit choices.

Comfortable Stay at Hotel Fundador
Hotel Fundador is a very good place to stay, especially if you are driving. Unlike many parking facilities in Portugal, the parking garage is easy to get into & out of, and the individual parking spaces are quite large. The garage elevator can take you directly to your floor. The rooms are quite large, clean and well equipped with electric sockets. Breakfast was satisfactory, and the breakfast room on one of the upper floors offered a great view of the city. The hotel is located about a 20 to 30 minute walk from the historic center (uphill on the way back). It was not practical to walk back downtown for dinner, but there are two good restaurants within a five minute walk from the hotel. The restaurant directly across the street is superior. It offers creative and perfectly cooked meals at a reasonable price.

Great view
Hotel room was very large and clean with an amazing view. They love to keep the room very warm so turning down the thermostat is a must. Very convenient location for seeing the old section of town. Friendly staff. Only negative is the elevators are tiny and during "rush hour" (breakfast time) will take a long time to get to your floor and the Wifi was pretty bad.
