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. 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.
