  • Pousada Castelo de Obidos – Hotel Castelo

    The magnificent Pousada Obidos is a luxury hotel situated in a medieval Castle in the old walls of Obidos, a fortified town in the west of Portugal

    Description

    The town of Obidos is known as the ‘wedding present town’ as it was given by King Dinis to his bride, D. Isabel, on their wedding day in 1282. Since then, Obidos has been a place of refuge and relaxation for the Portuguese monarchy. Obidos is an excellent example of medieval architecture – its beautiful squares, narrow streets, walled fortress and castle are a popular tourist destination.

    This luxury Hotel in Obidos is housed within the town’s 12th century medieval castle, which is considered one of the 7 marvels of Portugal and is awaiting classification of ‘World Heritage’ by UNESCO.

    The Pousada of Obidos has 14 double rooms and 3 suites, 9 of which are located in the castle and 8 in a new wing. All rooms are named after Portugal’s Kings and Queens who have stayed in the town. They have en-suite bathroom, heating/air conditioning, safe, minibar, bathrobes, hairdryer, telephone, Cable TV and internet access.

    There are some good restaurants in Obidos but we recommend eating in the Pousada’s own restaurant which offers excellent regional and international cuisine.

    For more information the Hotel Castelo and the surrounding area please visit the Obidos page.

    6 testimonials for Pousada Castelo de Obidos – Hotel Castelo

    1. My husband enjoyed three nights in this glorious town and enchanting castle….we found all the staff to be most helpful and glad to assist with even the smallest things. The restaurant was so excellent that we took all our dinners there, imagining ourselves to be in a Shakespeare play, or. Something similar….
      Recommend it highly!

    2. The experience I had staying at the Castle was the best part of my trip to Portugal. The Castle is very beautiful and the rooms comfortable. The lady at the front desk was warm and welcoming. The young man who seemed to be doing everything from carrying bags to waiting tables was exceptional friendly and helpful. The town of Obidos is very charming. The road up to the Castle was an experience in itself, streets are very narrow, can be scary at times, so be very careful!!!! I enjoyed the town too at night when all the tourists were gone, it became quiet and even more enchanting!! I highly recommend this Pousada, and thank you to the staff for the great service!!!!

    3. Yes, the road to the castle was a challenge and yes, it was a tough climb up the stairs to get to the entrance but it’s a castle for crying out loud… enclosed in a walled-fortress. We thought it was wonderful. Our room overlooking the courtyard was beautiful. The service was very nice. The employees couldn’t have been more gracious. We loved Obidos. It was one of the best places we visited in Portugal. If you are looking for Las Vegas don’t come here. But if you want a warm castle experience stay at the Pousada in Obidos. And yes, we got the Golden Age discount.

    4. Great experience to stay in the castle. The service was very good, especially a pleasant woman who brought us breakfast on the terrace – very nice! The castle is stunning. We would have liked some information on the history – we got 2 conflicting answers when we asked 2 staff. All in all a wonderful experience that we have recommended to others. A highlight of our trip through Spain and Portugal.

    5. Our travel group of five arrived in Obidos and had some trouble finding the correct entrance through the wall up to the Pousada. Our receptionist was on the lookout for us and came out to take the car up the last incline. Our rooms were in the tower and also in the newer section. What a wonderful treat. One room even had a fireplace where we could go out on the balcony and watch the sight and light show on the local church (we were there during the Christmas holiday). We were given places to see and suggestions for walks. Our hosts at the pousada were outstanding and we enjoyed wonderful meals too. Thank you so much Scarlett Rehrig, USA

    6. We have much enjoyed our stay at this Pousada. We were greeted with the traditional drink and were allocated a nice unit. The restaurant is excellent though a bit expensive. Getting with a car is a challenge but with the stuff assistance we have parked safely. The town is lovely and worth spending at least a day in the small streets and around the old walls. You will enjoy!
