"Pousadas de Portugal" is a hotel chain originally started and managed by the Portuguese state in the 1940-ies. Nowadays it is run by the Pestana hotel group.
The main idea is hotels in renovated buildings with a historic past. As the minister who invented the Pousadas, António Ferro, said: "small hotels that doesn't look like hotels".
Castelo Alcacer do Sal is a typical example. But, being a former convent, it is not at all small - it is huge!
Tastefully renovated, keeping much of the old atmosphere and combined with modern deco.

We had a lovely experience with a large room (including a balcony/terrass), comfy beds, all amenities, great public areas, a good bar and a quite descent restaurant.
Staff extremely kind and helpful. We especially remember Felipo, who attended us with utmost care through our evening in the restaurant.
Not in any way expensive, this is a great way to spend some nights travelling in Portugal.
Highly recommended!

Brilliant Pousada with magnificient staff, location, very clean and quiet. Perfect to rest. The view from the Pousada is brilliant and near the center. Unique experience by sleaping on a Castle and visit the cripta with the history from Alcácer.

A room with a view of the castle walls, town and countryside, great interiors including several lounges, bar and restaurant, quite a lot of historic decor. 10 minutes walk to river with most of the shops and restaurants.

Very good breakfast (limited hot food but more than made up by the amazing cheeses and presunto, several cakes and selection of other produce.

Had a lovely rest after our flight from Canada to Lisbon. Room was very comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly. Restaurants and bar service was very disappointing. Breakfast was terrific but dinner had to be returned as the salmon was under cooked.

We were very impressed during our two night stay here. The staff are very welcoming, the rooms spacious and comfortable and the grounds make you feel like royalty.
We dined one evening and ate breakfast there both mornings. The dinner was one of our best meals in Portugal. The ambience and menu was fantastic!
It was our first stay at a Pousada but won't be our last.
