We stayed at this wonderful inn last night, and our only negative is that we spent only one night there. Peter and Nina (the owners) couldn't do enough for us. Their breakfast was the greatest - all organic with fresh fruit, along with home baked pastries and fresh squeezed orange juice. They even made bacon and eggs for us. Peter... More

Definetly one of the best places for Evora! Top location in the old city walls (free parking), nice building and cosy places to play chess and enjoy the evening. I'd give this hotel a avarage 3 Points here if there wasn't the very nice owner Nina and her well motivated staff! They make your stay absolutely unforgetable and help where... More

My wife and I stayed at the Albergaria one evening last week, and had a wonderful experience. The Inn is a handsome place that is quiet and immaculate. The staff were most helpful with such requests as dinner reservations, directions to sites in the city, and a taxi back to the train station.

My husband and I stayed at the Albergaria do Calvario last week and loved every minute from the warmly enthusiastic greetings from Rita and Hugo at the front desk to the send off from owners Nina and Peter two days later. THIS is how a hotel should be run. The staff was not only friendly, but efficient and helpful for... More

Great personal service by the owners (Nina & Peter) and staff (Rita & Hugo). They really make one feel as if we at home. They try to accomodate as best as possible all requests. Fantastic breakfast with fresh organic products. I´ve been to several 5 star hotels that never had the fresh orange juice that Nina and Peter have at... More

Excellent room, service, location and the price includes one of the best breakfast buffets we've seen. Owners Peter and Nina have obviously made their hotel a labor of love, and you'll love it too. Best value we've seen for the 105 euro price. Our only complaint is those [--] European half-size shower doors.....but that's true everywhere. Do yourself a favor... More

'struth, this has to be the place to stay, and we have travelled some, in Portugal. A truly enriching experience - accomodation, food, and the unique Proprietors. Ah, that would be to leave out the support cast e.g. Hugo and Rita. At home, one of us likes garlic in his scrambled eggs - they obliged. Infact, nothing was too much... More

This is truly an extraordinary hotel. It is a renovated olive oil mill which has become a modern accommodation with a traditional sensibility. The rooms are large, well appointed and immaculate. The public areas are inviting and comfortable. It was great to have free internet and American channels on the TV. The breakfast was definitely the best we have ever... More

In planning our trip to Portugal, we decided to visit Evora because of the stellar reviews we read about this hotel. We were not disappointed. Having visited other walled cities in Europe, it was remarkable to be able to drive just within the wall, turn into the hotel courtyard and then down into their underground garage. Nina and Peter, the... More
