Nice pool area and Garden with orange and lime trees. Basic room and very good breakfest, more than just bread and coffee! Good location easy to come by car. Elvas was tradional portugese village. Good view point From the chapel.

Very good location. Very good price/service. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. The room is clean and the bathroom too. The restaurant is only for breakfast and the choice is acceptable, with fresh bread and cofre and fruit!

Came here back in 2011 when is first heard it had been converted from a military hospital. I was brought up in the area and had always seen the very tall palm and had wanted to come and see it for myself. The hotel, as mentioned above, was converted from a medieval militarily hospital, and it's been done up beautifully,... More

We were passing between Evora and Caceres and we stayed at this hotel. It is stepping back in time a little to stay here. It is not a modern hotel but that is part of its charm. Charming it is, but there could be a lot of improvements to build it to a four star hotel it purports to be.... More

A nice local hotel in a historic building with good service from Luis, the Chief of Reception, who changed our booking to a better room for our family situation and arranged a couple of beers to be brought to the room as we arrived. Help with the luggage and direction to the room would of been appreciated. Room had all... More

The hotel is located in the restored Catholic Convent, inside the city walls, in the center of town. Our spacious room had a view of town's fortifications, also a comfy queen bed, wardrobe, sofa, desk, mini-bar, all in pleasant décor. Friendly staff, quite helpful. Buffet breakfast was included. Free Wi-Fi (weak) and private parking on site. Overall, a good value.

We stayed here for two nights in February 2015, the rooms are spacious with lovely refurbished bathrooms, decent warm water, plenty of towels and extra heaters in bathrooms.

This hotel is in a converted convent. The building and grounds cover a lot of territory. It is a wonderful maze of halls and passages and it is a bit like staying in a museum. The room we had was huge with a nice King bed. Not all romos are created equal. Some do not have windows to the outside... More

The hotel is perfectly located in Elvas which is a small city well worth a visit. A former monastery and then a hospital during the British Iberian campaign in the early 19th century, this hotel is built right on the city walls. Its tiled floors and high ceilinged rooms give it grandeur and the flowers and orange trees just off... More
