A friend and I spent one night at this historical and luxurious Pousada, and the only thing that we could find wrong with our stay was that it was not long enough. We were welcomed by a friendly and capable staff. Our room was a perfect size, and the bathroom was well appointed. Everything was sparkling clean. The location of... More

Located in the middle of the historic center, this is a fantastic hotel to stay in Evora. The staff is super nice, the building full of history and walk distance to the main attractions/restaurants. The breakfast (included) is pretty good - just missing some egg options. Dinner at the hotel is also highly recommended

Went there to know the region (Alentejo), since the city (Évora) stands exactly in the middle of it. The Pousada was a good surprise, because, although we already knew it was a reconverted ex-monastery, it was very cosy, quiet and classy. The rooms are well achieved and I have to headline the bath in old style that is perfect for... More

We stayed a night here and loved the hotel. First, it's just across the way from the Roman Temple and around the corner from the old Cathedral. You can't beat the locations. We really enjoyed just walking through the halls of the hotel. Because it was a convent at one time, you find nooks and crannies everywhere. The breakfast was... More

Beautiful building,friendly and helpful staff but the bedroom and bathroom were a bit depressing. Breakfast was a disaster.One pot of coffee on the table for about 20 people which kept running out and guests permanently waiting for items to be replaced.

WOW. This hotel is just plain stunning. From the moment you walk in, to the rooms, bar area, pool area, breakfast area and courtyard- this hotel is immaculate! Also very tastefully decorated in true to the time style. I was so impressed with all the elements of this hotel. The location is also just perfect. I highly recommend this hotel.
