This posada is a diamond in disguise. From the outside and its town location you think the convent Sao Francisco posada will not be anything special. This posada is outstanding, from the moment you locate the parking lot in the back past the police parking lot, to the low key back entrance you are enter to discover that this posada... More

All in all, we stayed 4 nights at the Pousada in Beja and enjoyed our time throughout. It is a place to relax; we were on a three week journey from Porto to Faro - and the Pousada was the perfect place to just sit back and take a deep breath. The building is just great - convent and all... More

Beautiful setting in an old Franciscan Monastery in the centre of town, near great restaurants. Lovely big family room, cool and with views over the square. Perfect night's stop en route for the Algarve from Estremoz. Pool perfect!

Situated in Beja, in the Alentjo region there has been a convent on the site since 1268. The Pousada de s. Francisco is a beautiful restored building which offers a cool and calm oasis to the tired traveller. The huge airy public areas of the building are impressive and a welcomed relief from the heat of the town. We spent... More

We staid for 3 nights in a family suite. Good hotel, good value. The rooms are a bit dated, but very comfortable. The Pousada is spacious with a lot of open areas for guest to lounge.. The pool is clean and big enough.. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Maybe not the best Pousada, but considering the rates, it is... More

Pousada S. Francisco - Beja The third Pousada on our trip around Portugal was The Beja Pousada (Pousada S. Francisco). We arrived after a stop in Mertola, a must see if you like old castles. We parked in the police station parking space, but when we checked in we were told that they had their own lot in the back... More

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.
