Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Rainha D. Amélia

Rua de Santiago 15, Castelo Branco, Castelo Branco, 6000-179, Portugal

One of the only lodging choices in the center of Castelo Branco, Hotel Rainha D. Amélia makes sure you don't pass by its unassuming facade by writing its name in big letters down the sidewalk. It offers good-size guest rooms that are pleasant and airy. Public areas—including Varanda Real, a small restaurant with crisp white tablecloths and subtle lighting—are inviting. Because of its proximity to the Serra da Estrela, the Dona Amélia is busiest during the ski season between November and May.
