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.

Great Stay
For a 3 star hotel, I give it 10 out of 10. Room is spacious and functional. Staff is courteous and efficient. View from room is amazing. Breakfast is ample and good. It is across from the train station. Highly recommended.

Great location, friendly and helpful staff, would have got top marks if the air-con hadn't been turned off for the winter even though the temperature was in the mid to high twenties. Other than that, spot on.
