I think to stay in a historical walled in town that wreaks history that is UNESCO protected and is packed with tourists and groups during the day, has a wonderful feeling of exclusivity when by the evening the groups have gone and you have the place to yourself. This hotel is in the centre of the walled area and driving is challenging to get there. We parked outside the walls, walked in and explored before we found the hotel, checked in and sought driving instructions how to get our vehicle to the parking area outside the hotel's entrance. The nature of the old cobbled roads it not suitable for rolling your luggage!
This was a delightful hotel, very clean, comfortable and in a quiet location. The rooms are all named after past Portuguese Queens and our room on ground level offered a balcony. The welcome glass of Ginja sour cherry liqueur amenity was provided upon arrival which got us off to a great start. The bed was comfortable, we got a good night's sleep and the Wi-Fi was strong. The bathroom had a strong shower and the complimentary bottled water was a nice touch. We ate in the hotel Restaurant that evening and the food was excellent and homemade, authentically Portuguese. Breakfast offered an excellent buffet with hot and cold dishes. We stayed only one night as we were travelling through the region, but would definitely return the next time we're in Obidos.
