We spent two nights at the Pousada Sao Francisco and found it cool, calm and tranquil. The reception staff were extremely helpful when it turned out that we had inadvertently booked to stay the night in a different pousada (as part of the pousadas' five-night passport package), smoothing everything so that we could stay when we turned up. The room... More

The Pousada Sao Francisco is a beautifully converted former convent with cool cloisters and a very attractive dining room. The bedrooms are a little small and I'd say they were 3 star - the air conditioning was noisy and not terribly effective! But the staff were very friendly and helpful, the outdoor pool was lovely and we had a good... More

Second visit to hotel for short visit very peaceful and spacious hotel. There are plenty of good quality restaurants and bars in the area. People are helpful and friendly and driving in and around the town is not a problem.

Room was OK, clean and everything worked. Breakfast was all so OK...the setting gave it aomething extra and atmosferic... We are not very fond of bigger hotels, and this was a stop in our road trip, but if you like bigger hotels, this would be one to visit. Cleaners and waiters obviously are doing their best, but for us we... More

This was our first time in a Pousada and I can see why people get hooked - the history and atmosphere is fantastic, you really got a feeling for what it was like as a working convent - it was a little bit of a shame there wasnt any of the original 'cells' to see as that would have been... More

This Pousada has been restored beautifully. All of the gorgeous cloisters are white and sunny. There are lots of elegant public rooms for relaxing. The bedrooms are very nice. The town of Beja is fun and pretty to explore on foot And the Pousada is very well located.

Converted from a convent, large, well appointed room. Breakfast spread very generous and attended by polite efficient staff. Couple of drawbacks: check whether your room is double or twin, we were disappointed. Also the wifi was dodgy and only available in reception.

The Pousada was located in the former XIII century Franciscan convent in the heart of historic center of Beja. Our room was in the old monk's cell, with classic furnishings and modern conveniences like twin beds, A/C, table & chairs, cable TV, safe, minibar and bathroom. The staff was polite & helpful. Buffet breakfast was included with many choices. Excellent... More

It's a very charming place to stay in an old and historic building. Some things need an update but in general it's a good experience. The better option in the area, in my opinion. Beja is a cute town but with not that much to offer.

Friendly personnel at the reception. Nice room, clean and comfortable. Very rich breakfast. Have had dinner in the hotel. Was overall disappointing. Took a 3 course meal (menu). Quality below our standard. Personnel gave us clearly the idea that we had chosen the "poorman's" meal. We our confident that if you offer such a meal you should stick to your... More
