We were staying in Lisbon for two weeks and decided to take a day trip on the bus from Lisbon to Evora. When we saw this Pousada we were so impressed by the hotel in this beautiful historical building that we decided to spend the night here even though we had no luggage with us. The hotel graciously gave us... More

We stayed at this Pousada for three nights and were very impressed with it. Our rooms, like everyone else's, were once the cells for the occupants of the convent. They were a little dark, but that's to be expected in a convent! When taking a shower, one had to be very careful to make sure that the shower curtain was... More

Want to stay in a cell used by monks? This Pousada is your place. It is located right next to the Roman Temple ruins and very close to everything in Evora. Great small bar and experienced bartenders who really made us enjoy the drinks. The restaurant is also good and the staff very helpful and friendly. I certainly would recommend... More

If traveling through this area of Portugal, be certain to stay in this lovely, quaint accommodation. The location is fabulous, roman ruins right beside property and just a short walk into town. The rooms are numbered as "cells" which I thought was very quaint and cute. Rooms are around a center courtyard, lovely. The rooms were quite large with separate... More

I loved how proud of this property the staff was! Many of them volunteered the history of the convent to us and explained the different rooms. We had a spectacular suite (101) with trompe l'oeil paintings on the walls. The bed was super comfortable and the bathroom (with a separate shower) was spacious and modern (although the HUGE castle key... More

A friend and I spent one night at this historical and luxurious Pousada, and the only thing that we could find wrong with our stay was that it was not long enough. We were welcomed by a friendly and capable staff. Our room was a perfect size, and the bathroom was well appointed. Everything was sparkling clean. The location of... More

Located in the middle of the historic center, this is a fantastic hotel to stay in Evora. The staff is super nice, the building full of history and walk distance to the main attractions/restaurants. The breakfast (included) is pretty good - just missing some egg options. Dinner at the hotel is also highly recommended

Went there to know the region (Alentejo), since the city (Évora) stands exactly in the middle of it. The Pousada was a good surprise, because, although we already knew it was a reconverted ex-monastery, it was very cosy, quiet and classy. The rooms are well achieved and I have to headline the bath in old style that is perfect for... More

We stayed a night here and loved the hotel. First, it's just across the way from the Roman Temple and around the corner from the old Cathedral. You can't beat the locations. We really enjoyed just walking through the halls of the hotel. Because it was a convent at one time, you find nooks and crannies everywhere. The breakfast was... More
