The hostel occupies a completely restored convent from the 16th century and comprises a total of 32 rooms. It is an example of the achievement of perfect harmony between the traditional and modern concepts of Portuguese architecture and a felicitous example of adapting the austerity of a convent to today's standards of comfort. Guests are welcomed in the lobby with 24-hour reception, currency exchange facility, a safe and lift access. Further facilities within the hotel include a bar, a restaurant and a TV room. It is also possible to make use of the public Internet terminal, the room service, or the parking facilities.
