This is a converted monastery, with monumental entrance halls and other public areas. Our room was smallish, however, but very comfortable and perfectly adequate. The breakfast is very good — standard European things with a few Portuguese touches — and the pool area, which we visited once, is very nice indeed on a scorching hot day. (There are pool towels...

The huge height of the entrance hall takes you aback, but quickly you will find that the pousada is very cozy and comfortable and all around first rate. As is common in the Alentejo, service can be a bit slow for the taste of nervous Nordics, but that's actually a part of the charm. And it's friendly and dedicated. Room... More

Superb, very relaxing hotel in the heart of Beja, with lovely pool/gardens. The public areas are magnificent, as this is a converted convent that has been beautifully restored/converted. Bedrooms are very good, comfortable, quiet, and very clean and tidy

I was blossomed when arriving and figuring out I was about to sleep in an ancient Monastery. The traces on the architecture are simply genius. The service there is a top quality one and the food unique.

The key strength of this pousada is its authenticity, retaining a strong relationship with its historic origins. It's location places it within easy walking distance of Beja's significant buildings. Regrettably the town itself has suffered many years of neglect although work is in progress to rectify this. The task is not insignificant. For this reason we were not able to... More

The garden and outdoor pool environment is also very nice. Rooms are OK, although not very large. Rooms 101-106 have a good view to the garden / pool. Breakfast, included, is quite good.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Beja, Sao Francisco, is a hotel right in the centre of the city, in an old XIII century convent, the result of which is a majestic, impressionable architectural work, which represents religious and gothic architecture. The first registers of the convent date back to 10th November 1268, a date which marks the emergence of the S. Francisco Community in Beja under the initiative of the Captain General Lopo Esteves and the Councillors Diogo Fernandes and Vasco Martins. Opened in 1994, this historic luxury hotel in Beja has kept the original features of the old building, containing many spacious areas, high ceilings with predominating white walls and decor of local crafts and antiques, giving it a warm welcoming to visitors of the Pousada. In the old central nave, contemporary art expositions give life to the walls. The hallways, ample and stripped, connect the old monks' chambers which have been remodelled and transformed into welcoming bedrooms with an inviting view of the pool and garden. Nserted in the heart of Alentejo, the Pousada can help their guests plan a number of diverse activities including bicycle rides, horse treks and hikes. The Beja Castle is only 700 metres from the Pousada de Beja and the Queen Dona Leonor Museum is found a mere 300 metres away. The Pousada de Beja is a true oasis in the Alentejo plain. Come and relive these old memories, with almost 800 years of history, in a real haven in the Alentejo plain. ... more   less
