  • Pousada de Cascais – Cidadela Historic Hotel and Art District

    This luxury Pousada Hotel is located in the lively coastal town of Cascais near Lisbon, Portugal’s vibrant capital city

    Description

    The Pousada of Cascais opened in Spring 2012 and is set within the walls of the 16th century Citadel in the centre of this delightful coastal town. The Citadel and the inner Fortress of Our Lady of Light (Nossa Senhora da Luz) were used between the 15th and 17th centuries for defending the Portuguese coast and the mouth of the River Tagus from French, English and Arab pirates. In the 19th century the Citadel was the summer residence of the royal family.

    Hotel Cascais

    This beautifully restored Hotel in Cascais perfectly combines the ancient with modern. With its sea views, swimming pool, luxury spa, central location and proximity to the capital it is a perfect base from which to discover the superb Lisbon coast of Portugal.

    The Hotel Fortaleza Da Cidadela, in the Lisbon area, has 126 rooms, including 18 suites. Many of the rooms are located in the former military barracks. Others, more modern, enjoy spectacular views to the sea or over the large internal courtyards. All rooms have en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, free internet access, minibar, hairdryer, safe, telephone and cable TV.

    The Pousada Cascais is situated in the centre of the cosmopolitan coastal town famous for its beaches, restaurants and elegant shops.

    Testimonials

    4 testimonials for Pousada de Cascais – Cidadela Historic Hotel and Art District

    1. We have just stayed at this wonderful hotel. Perfect location opposite the marina, nice view, fantastic architecture where ancient and modern elements melt together, even the standard rooms are very nice, great breakfast and last but not least: this place is already special but what really makes it to a very special hotel is the STAFF: outstandingly friendly and helpful at all times! The best ingredient is always the one you cannot see: it’s the love and enthusiam someone puts in!
      Only negative point; our stay was too short…

    2. We have just returned from a week’s stay at the pousada in Cascais. We enjoyed it so much we are seriously thinking of booking a further week here this September. Everyone, from the reception staff, waiters and the chambermaids were without exception polite and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. We were lucky to have a room overlooking the marina which had ceiling to floor and wall to wall sliding glass door which led to huge patio. There were fresh flowers in the room. We arrived late at night after Resteraunts in Cascais were closed but had a really nice bar meal at midnight and the waiters did not make us feel we were a nuisance – the perfect introduction to this relaxing, welcoming hotel.

    3. Could not fault our stay here. Best points are the amazing staff, who were polite, enthusiastic and welcoming at all times together with the location in beautiful Cascais. We would return.

    4. Excellent stay for three days. Enjoyed it immensely. I can only re-iterate the comments from other guests as above. I would agree about the late maid service and maybe that can be addressed. We wanted to dine in the separate restaurant on the opposite side of the courtyard but they couldn’t fit us in ( everyone stayed at the hotel that evening because it was too wet to go out !) which was a shame . WE would have liked to have dined there. All in all, it was a nice experience and we loved Cascais , particularly the cultural aspects of the town. Best wishes
