“Beautiful hotel, best breakfast and friendly staffs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

We had a great stay at this hotel. The staffs were all so wonderful, nothing was too much. They parked our car, booked our restaurant, recommended sites around evora etc.. All with a smile. The room was big and lovely. Comfortable beds and beautiful bathroom. The breakfast was gorgeous. All organic free range and local. Great location inside the walls. The free glass of wine on arrival was a nice touch after a long day of driving. Free Wifi in the rooms and all over the hotel. Our only regret is not to have stayed an extra night as one night is too short. We would love to come again one day.

yes - the service is of a quality never previously experienced.
Yes - the breakfasts are amazing.
YES - the reviews are accurate (and our 'classic' room is much better than 'average').
Travel to Portugal just to experience this gem in a unique location.

Albergaria do Calvario is simply perfect.
People working there are smiling, helpful, always king and competent. They are ready to suggest you the places to visit and the restaurants where to eat.
The hotel is really clean, rooms are comfortable, and common places are wonderful. Wi Fi is free every where in the hotel.
Breakfast is simply delicious.
The position of the hotel is perfect within Evora walls closed to the best places of Evora.
Congratulation to the staff of Albergaria do Calvario!

Evora is beautiful and this hotel is sublime. The preparation that has gone into setting this hotel up and making guests feel welcome is unprecidented in my experience. Genuinely the best and friendliest hotel I have ever stayed in.

This hotel excels in many ways. The staff stand out as exceptionally friendly and helpful, knowledgeable and well, just make you fell very welcome. The location of the hotel is good as it is just inside the city walls and therefore easy to find. On site parking is a real plus. Rooms are clean and spacious and the general feel of the hotel relaxes you immediately. The breakfast was outstanding - certainly worth getting there early so you have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the fresh, high quality food. I cant think of anything I didn't like about this place.

Hotel Albergaria do Calvario is quite simply fantastic! The owners and staff could not be any friendlier nor more helpful, you are greeted with a welcome drink and a welcome book with suggestions of what to do during your stay. Everything is bio and homemade, which makes breakfast an experience worth a visit in itself. We have stayed there four times now and will continue to return.
