Staying three nights March 16-18 in this amazing hotel was a wonderful treat. It is beautifully laid out and maintained. The place is like a work of art. Nothing was too much trouble. We accepted their offer to book evening meals for us and were glad we did. All tables had been reserved at two out of the three. And...

My husband and I used Evora as a base for exploring Alentejo's delights and the Albergaria do Calvario was perfectly situated for that -- they also have parking beneath the hotel. The star of the show is two fold: the super friendly and helpful staff (many of whom are college interns) and the great breakfast spread. Staff helped us make...

A full service hotel that far exceeded our expectations. It is located just inside the wall so you don't have to drive thru town to get to it. It also has an underground parking garage. The staff will park and retrieve your car if you ask, a good idea since the garage is very tight. We had room 19 which...

This "small" hotel in unique in that it is in a re-purposed olive press building (from the 1570's). Each room is therefor unique. We were fortunate to have gotten a room that was more like an apartment on a courtyard separate from the main building. Even though our room faced a local traffic street, it was very quiet. It is...

This was my fifth stay at the hotel and each time the service, food and ambience are spectacular. I always try to plan my vacation so that it includes a stop at this wonderful hotel. It is truly a wonderful place to relax and be looked after and enjoy amazing food. We will be back!!

Stayed here for just one night (unfortunately only one) during a recent visit to Portugal. Wonderful staff, so helpful and friendly, and very comfy room. Breakfast was delish. The staff was so kind to orient us well for our visit to Evora and we made the most of our short time. Would definitely return!

There really isn't much to add to the wonderful reviews. Tremendous staff, service, helpfulness, advice, breakfast, facilities, rooms and the city itself. Why would you stay anywhere else? Springtime is especially delightful in the Alentejo.

Terrific staff who can't do enough to help - the hotel is spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable - I would say "home from home" - but I think it's nicer than that!! The rooms are relaxing and quiet and the bed is super comfortable. Delicious breakfast with top quality ingredients - I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Evora...

Honestly, it was a very easy choice to stay at the Albergaria do Calvario because of all of the excellent (and extremely well deserved) reviews. I don't know if you will ever find friendlier or more helpful staff than at this hotel (Hugo was absolutely fantastic); not only will they make you feel so welcomed, they will also offer help...
