extraordinary place to visit”
what a treasure ! the location, and gardens, and paths, though not well marked, are full of special moments. the structure is gorgeous--the rooms rather ordinary, but the common areas are delightful.

Fabulous experience the bussaco is a one off”
We have never stayed in a hotel as fabulous and interesting as the bussaco. It's absolutely fascinating and combined with friendly and professional staff this makes for an experience which we will not ever forget. The grounds and palace are a wonder in themselves....beautiful.

Shocking!”
Great position in wonderful wood. Building very interesting. Room (25) in shocking condition - pictures available from me. No hot water in wash basin; walls dirty, full of damp and mould in bathroom and neglected (desperately needs paint and cleanup) ; no full length mirror; electricity connections lying loose on the floor; only one weak reading lamp. Most definitely not five star and rate of Euro 147 per night totally unjustified. Our worst experience ever after travelling for many years in many countries. Will most definetely inform who ever we can. Salomon

Extreme Feelings”
location, palace, furniture
Our stay in Bussaco is a story of "extremes". We had been given the hint to go to Bussaco by a person that we totally trusted and that had been there in the past, and had a wonderful experience. We were quite hyped by this, because the tales of the hotel, the palace, the gardens were rather strong and we couldn't wait to see the place ourselves. Well the palace and the interiors are simply stunning, it's like stepping back in the early 1900, frescoes, azulejus, beautiful original furniture... WOW. This is where probably we should have considered that they stay was not going to be like the one that we thought it would have been. Bussaco Hotel (and the restaurant), is really like stepping back in the past, so despite the fact that it has 5 stars you cannot expect the services that we are used now in a 5 stars hotel. And this is where all falls apart. The room that we were given was spacey, but very old furniture, quite bare, no curtains blocking the light from the windows. The bathroom looked extremely old, rusty water running off the taps (only at first, then it was clear), chipped wood and wallpaper, stained carpets, bathrobes that were stiff and torn, bedding that was good 30 years ago... Not a great impression. Common rooms are furbished like in the past, but most of the stuffed chairs were dirty and torn, the smell of "old" was everywhere. Wifi nonexistant unfortunately, the signal was good only at ground floor. Dinner at the restaurant was hideously expensive and plain terrible, probably the worst part of the stay. A shame because it's presented in a great hall, with silver forks and a beautiful atmosphere. All in all it's a tale of extremes, because on one side you are struck by the beauty and uniqueness of the place, on the other the very low standards that they offer. Anyways, we did not like the experience, despite I can see some positives in staying in a place that once was the residence of a king.

You will not find a better hotel in the area...”
Location, Luxury & Romance
An excellent hotel, worth every Euro. You get to actually live in a palace. Also, for a 35 Euro dinner, you get a once in a lifetime experience- dinning like a king in an old castle with a forest view. The service was excellent though the reason for why I gave it the above grade (3), was due to the fact that there was lack in personnel. Only one person in the reception for doing check-in\out + showing people to their room, which caused a long wait... Other than that, it's an excellent hotel!!!

good stay; concierge could have been more helpful”
location, gardens, large room
We enjoyed our stay. the room is large, but has not been renovated in a long time...although maybe this is to be expected in an old monastery. the hotel itself is a fantastic property with beautiful historic tiles. unfortunately the beautiful gardens were hit by a major storm uprooting many of the old large trees. so it looked quite devastated as we attempted to navigate it in the rain. Maps are provided, in portuguese only, and there are no signs on the routes so you do not often end up being on the right track or even starting point. The restaurant has perhaps had better days. Great interiorbut the quality of the food was not quite to to match.

Heritage values, artwork, furniture, history, food, experience overall fascinating
i would recommend the bussaco palace hotel to any international visitors as a unique experience in portugal. the historical values, the gardens, the original convent, the restaurant - with exceptional food and service, and the comfortable and clean rooms is well worth a visit and the price. the manueline artchitecture is stunning and to sit with a drink al fresco on a warm afternoon looking out on the grounds and forest is indeed a pleasure.

True feelings of a royal treat
Best to request a room with a balcony. Dinner at the hotel restaurant is a must, fabulous experience from start to finish. The service was impeccable from the first step we walked into the hotel interiors until we checked out.

זוועה”
חוץ מהמבנה שהיה באמת יפה , כל השאר פשוט קטסטרופה , חדרים מיושנים חדר האמבטיה מתאים למלון לפני הריסה אין מיני בר, אין מזגן, קירות מתקלפים רמת תחזוקה הכי ירודה שפגשתי, כאילו לקחו מבנה ישן הביאו כמה אנשי צוות ויאללה בוא נעשה מלון, באמת נוראי, ארוחת הבוקר היתה בסדר גמור, הגנים בחוץ היו גם כן מאוד מוזנחים כאילו נתנו לגנן אחד לטפל בכל הגן העצום, רואים שיש ניצוצות של טיפול אבל ממש לא כמו שמוכרים לנו בתמונות, חבל, מבחינת מיקום ופוטנציאל יכל באמת להיות אחד המלונות היפים שיכולנו לבקש, בקיצור צילמנו למשפחה רק תמונות של המבנה מבחוץ, לא העזנו לספר איך שהתאכזבנו מהמתקנים והחדרים, לא ממליץ, חבל על הכסף, אפשר לבוא ולצלם רק מבחוץ
