How to Get There
Building with Gothic, Manueline and Renaissance styles, it was founded by the monk-knights of the Order of the Hospital, later known as the Order of Malta. It is a National Monument since 1910 and a Design Pousada since 1995. The building is from the 14th century, but the amenities are modern. It has 24 rooms. Very economic prices in the low season, one night stay for around 100€ per room. The rooms are spacious and confortable. Good bathrooms. There is a small Spa and an outdoor pool. Romantic rustic views. Front desk staff courteous, but not at all elegant to demand payment at check-in. Fair breakfast and you can wait to be served, like in the good old days. A pleasant and interesting experience.
We stayed here on a friend's recommendation and it was an excellent decision. The hotel / castle is incredible and my husband (a history buff) really liked the historical aspects. We stayed in a superior room that was very large and beautiful with windows that opened to a quiet rural view with sheep and roosters. We had a large balcony for stargazing. The only complaint we have is that the mattress was very hard (hence the average rating for sleep). There is nothing in Crato itself, but it was an amazing location for side trips - especially recommend Marvao and Monsaraz nearby. Great place!
We chose this pousada to be convenient to Marvao and Castelo de Vide, and the bonus was how wonderful it was while being remarkably inexpensive. We chose a tower room, and it was incredible, and the whole pousada was a gem to wander around and savor. We cannot recommend the pousada experience too highly
Knowledgeable and courteous receptionist, character building and very spacious ground with beautiful rustic views. The room was spacious and clean, the large balcony was a bonus and ideal for sundowners! The location is ideal for a peaceful and detoxing holiday.Very pleasant people.
I am travelling around Portugal for 30 days, visiting 12 Pousadas all over the country.
This Pousada optically is very fascinating, the buildings are stunning and my room was very big and comfortable. Two things were negative. The guy at reception was correct, but he did not transmit anyhing of Portuguese hospitality. No smile, no welcome. I had 3 suitcases/bags to carry. He joined me to the room but did not even mention to give me a hand with the luggage. It was BY FAR the less friendliest welcome I got in all the Pousadas. No hospitality here, they do not make you feel welcome. Another big issue is the location and position of this Pousada. Already when you arrive you can hear dozens of dogs making terrifying noise around you. This noise continued all night long, and in no other place in Portugal I slept so badly like here. This noise of all these dogs is a pure nightmare for people who like quiet and relaxing places. I would never come here again, although optically it is a very nice Pousada. But a place where it is just impossible to sleep (with your windows closed!) is a pure no go for me. Another thing that was a pity were the windows that were really dirty. Windows in a hotel absolutely must be clean, same as the fingernails of the staff. Dirty windows are a real lack of good house keeping.
