This is the worst Small Luxury Hotel of the world I have stayed in. Definitely not up to SLH’s usual standards. Rooms dark and tired with basic facilities, no atmosphere, lethargic staff, poor food. Better places to stay close by.

We hired a vehicle. I would suggest to arrange a driver or cab (be aware one of our Uber drivers in Losbon was impaired). Wonderful to walk the village. Visit the Roman ruins....fascinating!
