Sao Paulo e Alegria was by far the nicest stay I had on my trip through Portugal. The best value for money, best service and the best breakfast.
The studio was newly refurbished with all the necessary features to be a comfortable stay, but what really impressed me was the thoughtful way on which the decoration embraces and respects the history and the vintage spirit of the building.
The rooftop lounge was my favourite late afternoon wine spot. A place to relax, work and tan.
Breakfast is a most have in this place. The products are fresh, local and delicious... I could eat those jams and yogurt every day.
Last but not least, my biggest appreciation to the team that puts so much energy and joy in their work and run an extra mile if necessary just to make you feel at home. The reception is thoughtful and their level of english is really impressive. They provide all the information necessary and I mean literally ALL the information: from bus schedules, restaurants around the island, tours, weather, historical facts even portuguese wine pairing. You can really tell they love hospitality and for the first time I was in a place where that sense of service felt honest.
