Hotel Sao Joao de Deus is a gem. It's tough to find on a map because its just inside the city walls - when you drive inside the walls, turn right and the hotel is immediately on your right. Drive past the entrance through the tunnel and the parking lot is a sharp right turn just after the tunnel. Now... More

This hotel is outstanding value. Nestling just inside the main gate of Elvas and set on the fortified walls, the views from the upper rooms are stunning. The couryard with the orange trees is peaceful, beautiful and inviting. Corridors and rooms are intriguing with an air of old world charm and elegance. Breakfast is excellent and this hotel is well... More

Stayed here only one night before we crossed over into Spain. Elvas is a NEAT little walled city which we didn't expect. The hotel is inside the wall. Rooms are updated and beautiful. We had rooms facing the courtyard which has orange trees. Very nice breakfast included. Spent the day roaming thru the town looking at things. The price CANNOT... More

We stayed here one winter when driving through Portugal. Managed to get a room for less than half rack price. The tourst information office has a list of accomodation and their offers. Lovely huge room, very well decorated and friendly staff. Well stocked bar also. Breakfast was a good start to the day. Well worth a visit.

We spent one night here with twin and double rooms. The hotel feels like an old castle with wide grand staircases and wide hallways. The rooms are large (the largest we had on the trip, but not as large as their website). The bathrooms were modern and also large. We were on a quiet small corridor. Our room overlooked a... More

The setting is interesting. Used to be a barracks and fort defending the bridge into town. The hotel has been tastefully rebuilt, with good-sized en-suite rooms. Room arrangements vary due to the architecture. Ours were above the gate into town and had views of the small square and the unprepossessing hotel entrance. The hotel is very clean. Good furniture, comfortable... More

This hotel is a real gem, steeped in history. The hotel is the old military hospital built into the fortified walls of Elvas. The who place exudes tranquility and peace. The rooms on the top floor overlook the swimming pool (built into the ramparts), the beautiful patio and gardens. The services are limited, but you are on the doorstep of... More

Our only regret was that we visited during the 'off season'. The lovely pool was closed as was the in-hotel restaurant. Those were the only two negatives of our stay - other than we wished that we could have stayed longer! Wonderful hotel with Moorish influences. Our room had a bedroom, separate bath and a sitting room. Very large room,... More
