It was a bit difficult to find; one thinks it's on top of the hill where the castle is located, but it is secluded in a garden in the valley below. The church with it's azulejos , next to the convent that turns out to be the pousada, is great! Reception: excellent; nice surroundings, but the room a bit in... More

We spent two nights here for New Year and were very pleased with our choice. The hotel has all the modern commodities with every comfort and the staff are there to respond to every need of the guests. The rooms are reasonably sized and the bathroom is actually rather large. There was a small problem with the electrics of our... More

We mostly appreciated the successful combination of ancient elements of the decoration next to modern installations in this old convent. Very nice people. Very helpful in any situation. Nice, clean room, extremely calm at night. Natural environment. During summer time certainly very agreeable with its swimming pool and horse riding.

We traveled to Arraiolos hoping to relax during a couple of days and are delighted for having chosen this Pousada. As in other Pousadas, service and comfort are a priority and staff is friendly, helpful and makes you feel welcome. Breakfast is wonderful with a wide choice of food, but don't forget to try the regional/local meats such as "paio"... More

My wife returned recently from a holiday in Portugal staying at three Pousadas with a tour. Our first stop was here, at Arraiolos. It is a delightful pace to stay for a restful break in a beautiful location. It is a sixteenth-century convent that has been updated sympathetically and tastefully in a minimalist style and is really relaxing setting, The... More

A delightful setting in a beautiful 16th century convent sympathetically adapted to a comfortable hotel away from it all. It is a labyrinth of corridors, sitting areas, steps and stairs which makes it very mysterious and gives the urge to explore. At the same time it is very easy to get lost and the whole place would benefit from major... More

It's an hotel with an immediate presence in a lovely setting. From the rear terrace, it looks upwards in one direction to the castle and village of Arraiolos on the hillside and, in the other direction, takes your gaze across the vast, flat rural landscape that almost dissolves on the horizon. The conversion of the old convent into an hotel... More

Stayed here as part of a group in late September. Superb quiet pousada with good clean rooms. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice but as we were part of a large group there definetly no freshly squeezed orange juice. Unfortunately they were short staffed and although did their best the evening buffet meal was not up to standard. Would... More

A group of 14 of us stayed in this old convent. The decor has a nod to the convent and has been sensitively adapted into an hotel. Lovely place to stay even if the beds are a bit hard. Lots of small sitting rooms so you feel that you are the only ones there. Staff very helpful as well.
