Which hotel

We are staying in Evora for a couple of nights in February enroute to the algarve and am torn between two hotels.....the Albergaria do Calvario or Pousada de Evora?

Has anyone had any experience of these hotels.

Thank you

I would choose pousadas over hotels. It's quite an experience!

In Evora the pousada is right in the center, the Albergaria is 10 min. away.

Thank you....that is a help. Have booked a Pousada in Porto which looks lovely but it was just the Albergaria gets such good reviews.

Februari is quiet and hotels are not full at all. If you have a couple of nights why don't you just book the 1st night. And then decide where you want to stay the remainder of your time?

Or have a look at the youtubes to get a feel for them:

Leith out a doubt Albergaria do Calvario! One of my all time favorite places!

Check with the hotel but as I recall there is no parking in the immediate area. There is a large public car park a couple of minutes walk out through the city gate. and a few places just inside the city gate.
