Older style hotel, nicely located within walking distance to the historic town center. Easy parking.
Nice rooms with charming decoration. Clean and tidy.
The restaurant is very good. Attentive service and excellent local dishes.
Good breakfast
I will return if in the area again.
Only negative comment is that they really need to get rid of the old tv and replace it with a new one

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

We stayed here for one night while visiting Elvas. The hotel is very convenient for both the bus station (5 mins walk) and the old town (about 10 mins walk). Although it's not within the walls, it has a nice setting. The staff were very friendly and our room was lovely, with a huge bed, a view of the acqueduct and good bathroom. Breakfast was very good with a range of cereals, bread, ham, cheese, fruit, yogurt, cake etc. We also ate dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Charming hotel located outside of the walled old city.
Rooms are of average size, but are very comfortable. Some furniture pieces are hand painted and the bathrooms have beautiful painted tiles.
Friendly staff and a very good breakfast.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies.

This charming small hotel, once considered one of the best Pousadas in Portugal, now under a new administration, is again and finaly returning to to its past glory.
The new Owners are friendly and hard working people with lots of experience in the field, and are working towards replacing the good name the hotel was once known for.
The rooms are very confortable, with a warm and casual feeling, without the austerity that some of these places pose.
The food is excelente.....,being also the owner of one of the best restaurantes in Estremoz " Cadeia Quinhentista" could'nt be any other way...! Some of the original Conventual recipies are being replaced ...., Bacalhau Dourado ( golden Code ) very famous dish, being one of them...,and the wonderfull and famous deserts that this Region is known for. A great unexpected experience!.
