Things we loved: The friendliness, warmth and welcome staff gave us. Nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful spaces - bright weaving, beautiful cushions, carpets. Waking to birdsong in the morning. Play of lights: by day - sun and shadows in the courtyard, by night myriads of candles flickering in lovely shades Interesting selection of books to borrow Almond cakes at... More

We visited Evora and intended to stay in the Pousada however having seen the reviews for Albergaria Do Calvario we changed our kids and booked here instead. Great decision. I cannot add much to the reviews other than to say this was one of the nicest and most welcome hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff renumbered our names... More

Four of booked this hotel some months ago. We knew little about it except it was Evora. What a fantastic surprise - lovely rooms, elegant breakfast, exceptional parking within the walled city, and simply the kindest, most efficient and knowledgeable, most hospitable staff we encountered on our three visit to Portugal. If you decide to book a room, stay two... More

Everything was EXCELLENT Could not ask for more, from the moment of our arrival to our departure. Albergaria Do Calvário is a 4-star hotel housed in a 16th century olive oil mill. With an ideal location inside the walls of the historic city of Évora,Just stroll out of the hotel and enjoy all the City has to offer.

What makes this hotel so exceptional are the staff. They were all cheerful, helpful, welcoming and apparently genuinely concerned that their guests have a good time. Perhaps they should open a hotel training school as a side-line?! We stayed an extra night, so got to try out two rooms. Both very well-appointed with extremely comfortable beds. Breakfast is second on... More

My wife and I were in Portugal for several weeks this past February and decided to vist the wonderful town of Evora. Partly as a result of reading an excellent review of the ADC in a Rick Steves book, we decided on several nights in the hotel. We were not disappointed - the staff are friendly and very helpful, rooms... More

The exterior and rooms are beautiful and comfortable. Parking is available and free and they will even park your car in the garage. All the staff is fluent in English and extraordinarily friendly and helpful. The only negative I could possibly come up with is that you won't get to practice your Portuguese or your parking skills here.

Large room and bathroom. Clean. Outstanding breakfast selection. Baked goods are tantalizing. Hotel seems to be staffed by university students well schooled in customer service. Staff is courteous, helpful and well informed.
