This pousada was an old convent in the middle of the Alentejo with a view to the circular castle of Arraiolos. Now that it is an hotel designed by a good architect, you still get to experience the peace and the beauty of nature and architecture, that the convent was meant to help you experience. I just spent three days... More

Swimming at the sunset and enjoying the birds' music in the monastery beauty silence was a magnificent experience. And dinning at the restaurant by the pool, with candels, tasting the nice alentejo's food and delicious Portuguese wines was quite romantic.

The Poussada in Arraiolos is really the only choice when it comes to a decent hotel in Arraiolos. And for that, it serves its purpose. We've stayed here twice now. The first time we had full board, and regretted it. So this time we decided to not include lunch and dinner. The reason for this is that the lunch and... More

I stayed for three nights on a tour of Central and Northern Portugal with Titan Holidays. On arrival the Pousada looked very unique with a tiled chapel and a combination of traditional and modern architecture. After a speedy check in and a welcome drink the room was a good size, very modern with wooden flooring, flat screen television, minibar and... More

I stayed here for three nights as part of a group from 29th April. The reception staff were so polite and friendly, my room was delightful, as was breakfast and dinner. Outstanding views from the dining room, with a beautiful chapel at the side of the Pousada. A most relaxing and romantic place to stay, I would thoroughly recommend it.

The pousada is an old monestry complete with two intact cloisters, carvings on the walls, stone pillars and little wall seats everywhere, a gilded and tiled chapel, some beautiful carved relics and acres of space inside- loads of areas to sit, and chill. I cant imagine it ever feeling crowded. As it is such an old building the walls are... More

Disappointing restaurant : A wonderful environment with careless waiters and overpriced dishes Over the last three years we went quite a lot of times to the hotel restaurant for dining. It’s a quite nice place. However, already in my 2012 review, I pointed to a recurrent problem of slow service and lukewarm meals. Sunday evening, it came worse: Despite the... More

The hotel, as all Pousadas is very beautifull. The people is very kind but not enough for the service. For example, the bar have no people at 19h. It is necessary go to the restaurant to ask somebody to serve in the bar. I have used in the restaurant a voucher sold as the beautifull name "jantar gourmet" (gourmet dinner).... More

My wife and I were in Portugal last week scouting out hotels for a company retreat later this year. We drove all over Portugal staying in one nice hotel after another. In the end, we concluded that this Pousada was the best and most unique place we have stayed, not just in Portugal, possibly overall. The service and food was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Arraiolos, Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, is situated in a sixteenth century convent presenting itself as an example in the art of recovery of historical buildings which combine traditional features with the concepts of modern architecture. The union between tradition and modernisms is celebrated in this Pousada with innovated luxury. During the middle ages the convent served the local evangelistic population. With the restoration into Pousada, the austerity gave way to joy, the simplicity of comfort and to penance to life's pleasures. Staying at this Pousada is a fantastic pretext for getting to know the town of Arraiolos, whose cultural heritage is world renowned, through its carpets which are a true work of art of tapestry. Guests of the Arraiolos hotel park for free on location. The centre of Arraiolos is 1.2 Km from Pousada de Arraiolos, Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, and 25 km from Evora. ... more   less
