Very unique hotel, in an old monastery, which includes a beautiful church and cloisters. It is highly recommended to take the guided tour, explaining the history of the place which is quite significant. There are rooms in the historic wing and also in a new, modern wing. We stayed in a beautiful suite in the old wing, with a small... More

Beautiful hotel, well restored with quirky original features. Thoroughly enjoyed my excellent spa treatment and facilities. Wine tasting was offered daily which was enjoyable and informative. Taxis into evora were reasonable (about 6€ from memory) and it was a lovely location having views across countryside. Would definitely stay again and would recommend.

I had the pleasure of staying here last June. My wife and I were treating my Portuguese parents to a 60th wedding anniversary vacation and we hit Evora for 2 days. This hotel was outstanding; the service excellent. Knowing it was my parents anniversary, they had complementary champagne and pastries waiting for them. The church on the property is very... More

We rented a car in Lisbon and drove to Evora for an overnight stay. Booked a night at the Convento after reading about it in a NYT article about Evora--and was so glad we stayed there. Granted, we were there on a Tuesday night in the off-season (March), so it was SUPER quiet, with maybe ten other guests. We were... More

Friends stayed here while I chose to stay closer to the city center at another more affordable hotel. Trip was only one night and didn't see the value of spending much to simply sleep at the hotel and not enjoy the facilities during warmer weather. I was with them when they checked in and had a chance to see the... More

Assuming you have a car at your disposal, it is worth staying at Convento do Espinheiro, located out side the bounderies of historic Evora. The staff is helpful and efficient. The Monastery building, which can be visited in a daily tour, is amazing. The hotel provides extremely comfortable accommodation, spa service / heated pool and a fine breakfast selection. Do...

This hotel has it all. It's in a converted monastery but there is no scrimping on luxury here. The rooms are top notch with lovely amenities. My room has a small balcony overlooking the ground and it was a treat to sit out there, put my feet up after a long day of sightseeing and walking, and sip the welcoming... More

This hotel is in a converted monastery (although sometimes referred to as a convent). Somebody spent millions updating this impressive, historic monastery. We had a Deluxe Heritage room in the old part of the hotel and it was fabulous. The staff is wonderful and the building itself is fun to walk around. Take the 5 pm tour and enjoy the... More

Situated a few minutes outside of town, this convent-turned-hotel should be a destination in and of itself. The public spaces are breathtaking -- including the original chapel, which remains largely intact. The grounds have evolved from contemplative to indulgent; it's hard to imagine the nun's had such a nice pool. (Pools, actually.) A fantastic breakfast spread served in the vaulted... More
