the hotel

The Meliá Castelo Branco is a 4-star hotel situated on top of a hill, next to the city’s castle, with magnificent panoramic views over Castelo Branco, the raia and the Serra da Estrela. Located a short distance from the A23 motorway exits and close to the city centre, the Meliá Castelo Branco allows you to explore the main points of interest in Beira Baixa.

The hotel was recently renovated, with the entire interior modernised and the rooms refurbished with a contemporary design inspired by the traditional Castelo Branco embroidery. The Meliá Castelo Branco offers all the comfort and service you need for a memorable stay.

The city of Castelo Branco is the gateway to a land of myths and legends, with magical corners to discover. Lose yourself in the nearby Historical Villages (Monsanto; Idanha-a-Velha), discover the Portas de Rodão, climb to the highest point in mainland Portugal (the Tower in Serra da Estrela) or the magic of the Barrocal Park.

The Meliá Castelo Branco has rooms with balconies, ideal for enjoying the fresh air, and several types to choose from, including a Presidential Suite with an in-room jacuzzi. You can also take advantage of the El Spa and Health club, where you can relax in our indoor pool, solarium, sauna, jacuzzi and Turkish bath, or take the opportunity to work out in the gym or play a game of tennis or squash. There is also the Cozinha do Castelo restaurant and the Colina bar, both of which offer magnificent views.

The hotel has chargers for electric cars, subject to availability and at an extra cost. The Hotel Meliã Castelo Branco is a 4-star hotel registered in the National Tourism Register under number 62.
