Magical Evora

Posted Jul 13, 2015
Pros: The staff is top-notch; the location is excellent; common area facilities are great
Cons: The shower system in the bathroom needs to be replaced with an actual conventional shower inside the beautiful bathtub. The current system is clumsy.
Location: visit Roman ruins next door; visit church attached to hotel; shop in town
We very much enjoyed our stay here, especially the historical aspect of staying in buildings that have been lovingly restored and tended. The lobby, breakfast area, patio and common areas are stunning, but the room was very plain and somewhat cramped. Frankly we thought the room was somewhat overpriced for what it offered. The shower system needs to go; we found it very difficult and clumsy to use. Keep the beautiful bathtubs, but install an actual shower system instead. We only ate one meal (other than breakfast) here because of the high prices. The meal that we did have was excellent. This inn is probably more suited to adults than children.

Historic building

Posted Jun 14, 2015
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, understated and effective
Cons: It's an old fashioned building - if that's not what you want, go to a modern hotel
Location: Plenty of shopping, with a range of bars and restaurants - lots of nearby qantiquity
A beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting, this was a great experience. The staff were helpful and polite; the hotel was old fashioned but comfortable. The rooms were a bit cramped but had all that was necessary. The outdoor pool was very welcome and the restaurant was good quality.

Wonderful hotel near historical sites.

Posted Jun 3, 2015
Pros: Great spacious room; the location; the breakfast, probably the best of all breakfasts eaten in Portugal. Fatal for one's weight!
Cons: Nothing to my mind!
Location: Please, see above.
The location of the Pousada is wonderful, just by a church and the so-called Temple of Diana. We strolled along the narrow and steep streets. A pedestrianised street lined with shops selling souvenirs mostly of good quality. Thestreet ends in a large square where the tourist office is situated. The square was the venue of a paintings exhibition and was throbbing with people. The convent of San Francisco was fortunately or unfortunately under renovation but one. Oils see the vastness of the building and it's beautiful arches. The Chapel of Bones which is part of the convent is a must-see.

Perfection in Evora

Posted May 25, 2015
Pros: EVERYTHING!
Location: All the major sites of Evora are within a short walk of the hotel, as well as restaurants and shopping.
The site is steps from the major sites in Evora. The hotel is amazing to look at and stay in. The staff couldn't be more helpful. The breakfast buffet was substantial. I couldn't give a hotel a more glowing recommendation.

Cool historic hotel in the middle of Evora

Posted Apr 24, 2015
Pros: The history, the location, the staff.
We were pleasantly surprised to find this hotel's lcation is right in the middle of this ancient walled city. Very cool experience spending the night at such an old site. The room is small, but very clean, and the rest of the building was like stepping back in time. The staff was very friendly, and helpful. Therestaurant is set around a beautiful garden with local food and a peaceful setting.

Interesting hotel in historic location

Posted Mar 20, 2015
The Pousada Convento de Evora is a unique and interesting hotel within the walls of Evora. From an architectural or historical point of view it is certainly well worth visiting. Travellers looking for spacious rooms with state of the art plumbing may be disappointed. We certainly were disappointed with the evening meals provided in the dining room. The service was remarkably slow and the meals themselves quite mediocre. Indeed, one was so cold and unappetizing when it finally arrived that the maitre d' appropriately declined to charge us for it. We were grateful for that but still disappointed. In fairness, we must say that the breakfast was both plentiful and nicely presented. In short, we can recommend this pousada as an interesting place to stay in a historic location. However, we suggest you plan to eat at one of the neighbouring restaurants.

Un peu deçu.

Posted Mar 6, 2015 on Hotels
Nous avions reservé une suite mais celle qui nous a été attribuée au rez de chaussée était plus petite qu'une chambre standard avec une toute petite fenetre en hauteur donc très sombre et un petit salon separé mais sans fenetre et froid. Petite salle de bain avec baignoire pas très fonctionnelle, on met de l'eau partout quand on se douche et le porte douchette etait cassé. Bon petit dejeuner. Hotel un peu vieillissant. Personnel amaible.
