My wife and I have just got back from our fourth stay at the Evora Pousada and this time we spoiled ourselves by having a suite. Our visit did not disappoint. It was satisfactory in every way. All the staff bent over backwards to be helpful. The buffet breakfast in the cloister looking at the Manueline doorway of what must... More

We absolutely ADORED our stay at the Pousada. We were on a family trip to Alentejo and the Evora part was rendered unforgattable thanks to this place and the great staff. The rooms are cozy and well taken care of. The ancient convent is breathtaking, and the location could not be better. Breakfast was sumptuous! All in all the best... More

We booked a three day stay on the internet, got very good value. The rooms are former monks cells, we understand are all of different sizes. Ours (no. 107) was certainly one of the smallest, it would not hurt the Pousada to be a bit more generous when larger standard rooms are vacant. Proper wooden clothes hangers are now very... More

The Pousada is located in the heart of Evora's beautiful historic center, right next to the cathedral, palace, roman ruins and main pedestrian streets. The interior of the Pousada is warm and inviting. After a long day of exploring the town's many sights my husband and I loved curling up by the roaring fire with a glass of wine to... More

Our room and bathroom was big comfortable and extremely clean. The room was also very dark at night which made for a great night's sleep. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. We loved the old charm of the hotel and its furniture

I stayed there for one night last december. The common areas are beautiful, cozy and well decorated. Staff was amazing, really kind and helpful, specially in front desk during check in. The room was a little disappointing, with an old carpeted floor and kind of a dark bathroom. Also, ask for a room on the first floor. Mine was on... More

During our tour of Portugal and Spain we stayed in pousadas and paradours in most towns. This pousada in Evora was the most authentic representation of the original purpose of the building: a monastery. Even our room number was a tile stating “Cell 115.” This is not a glamorous upscale hotel but an extraordinary opportunity to experience history many centuries... More

This hotel is very well located near to the city center and a short walk to some monuments. Also, the rooms were very clean, the staff was kind, and the breakfast good. The bad thing was the price which I consider very high comparing to other offers.

Evora is a hidden gem of a town, like so many on the Iberian peninsula that sits on a mountain with incredible heritage, stunning architecture an all types of local specialities. The Pousada is a 15th century convent converted into a hotel so your accommodations have you living history and every room is a former monk's cell. The staff were... More
