Access to the room had no light. The room was dark ace and the switch was not flagged. The TV did not work. I've been waiting 10 minutes for the hot water. The entire hotel was in darkness, and including the living room.

If you're looking for a typical hotel - look somewhere else. This is an old building, no wi-fi in the rooms, old furniture, creaky door, etc. But what an excellent place if you really want to get the feeling of an old town of Evora! Go there, enjoy a room almost like in an old inn, the beautiful terrace and... More

The hotel is in an old castle or very large estate with beautiful rooms, unique furniture, and amazing nooks and crannies everywhere that you can relax in. The place is like living in a museum. But, the bathrooms are modern and have all the conveniences one would want including large tubs. The breakfast is served in a lovely dining room... More

The location was great. However, the hotel had many flaws. There was black mold in the bathtub shower. The toilet seat was broken and despite requests to be fixed, it was not properly fixed and was broken again. The ceiling fan squeaked and our request that it be fixed was not answered. The air conditioning was ineffective. The locks on... More

If you're looking for wifi, updated rooms, and the latest in creature comforts, this isn't your place. But if you're looking for a dated but beautiful stay in a creaky and comfortable old building that feels a bit like home, look no further. The rooms are a bit sparse, the beds comfortable but no-frills. Everything works (with the exception of... More

Tricky to find the first time and to locate parking, the Monfalim is otherwise well placed for exploring little Evora. It is only a few short blocks from the main shopping street and center of town, yet quiet. Had the weather been better, we may have enjoyed the terrace - but it is a smoking area. The 30 steps up...

I booked through booking.com. The hotel info did not indicate that pre-payment is required anywhere in the booking. The hotel charged the total amount upon booking. I only learned when I checked my credit card balance. I have booked hotels at several cities for my trip and this is the only one that did this. When I was there, I... More

A good location but the interior, whilst having some wonderful old pieces inside is gloomy and the rooms need a bit of attention. The bathrooms were a bit mouldy but I suppose it is very old and it must take a lot of money to preserver the fabric of the property. A good location but staff are a bit slack.We... More

This hotel is in a great locationn in the city of Evora and the price is worth it. It's a but worn, but when your old your old. Don't expect a Holiday Inn,as it is not. It is old and comfortable with a family atmosphere. This is a family run operation and its like stepping into a big old Convent!... More

A lovely old building near all the main sights but it is a bit run down, though clean and with pleasant staff. Our room was definitely on the cold side, though the heating did come on in the evening: probably a much better bet in the summer when you'd be able to use the wide terrace at the front. Breakfast...
