The terrace rooms here are lovely and offer memorable views and comfort. The hotel thoughtfully offers various amenities to guests and is very helpful with questions. The terrace rooms were a highlight of our trip.

We had a first rate stay here...the hotel is located up in the old town...we did not want to drive through the small, narrow streets, so we were allowed to park at El Convento´s sister hotel (Hotel Los Olivos) down the hill, close to the plaza...the staff are extremely friendly & helpful...we were given room #6, which is famously named...

Stayed in this hotel as a part of the tour. Hotel had a great location and we could walk to the restaurants and church. The view from the balcony was great. Please note that many of the rooms were different from one another, so select one overlooking the valley. Hotel does not have a restaurant, though they do serve alcohol... More

If you stay in Arcos, stay here! Premo location on top of the hill with awesome views. Close to a couple of good bars and restaurants ( the Italian is the bomb!) Staff are friendly and helpful, they all spoke English. Breakfast on the terrace is a must people!

The balconies are what make this hotel special. Our room was very small and bathroom was teeny. Got to see other rooms and ours was definitely the smallest so ask for a bigger room. Breakfast was just ok but the staff is friendly and helpful.

The El Convento Hotel is in the old, central city area of beautiful Arcos. I believe all the rooms have terraces (balconies), which are begging visitors to sip coffee and gaze over the valley below - way below! Listen for the roosters yacking with each other in the morning! The rooms are large, including the bathroom. The location is fantastic... More
