Residencial Bejense
Ranked #3 of 9 Hotels in Beja
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 26, 2012

I recently stayed at this charming hotel in Beja for two weeks while serving on a volunteer project with Global Volunteers (teaching English within the local schools). Clean, quiet, and very homey...Residencial Bejense was the perfect locale to learn about and explore the local community. Very friendly staff with a nice daily breakfast with strong, tasty and copious amounts of Portuguese coffee (!) allowed us to start off each day with a smile. The owners do a great job and really care about their guests...they treat you like family. Thanks for a great experience!

Charming historic hotel. We spent 2 days in a spacious room with a essential bathroom both very clean and nicely decorated. The pensiont is located in a perfect position of this beautiful little village. Breakfast was superb, the friendly staff served good coffee and an incredible choice of local food. Delightful stay.

This hotel is ideal in the centre of this town. |The rooms were smalish but that might be because it had one of the biggest beds I have ever slept in. The room was comfortable and resonably quiet. A couple of places to eat and one even next door sold good food at a reasonable price. The breakfasst was good and the host and the family were very helpful and polite. Would certainly recommend this one.

Found this place in Lonely Planet. Right in the center of town. Front desk staff very friendly. Got a very nice room, not large but with a small balcony facing the main street for E40. Parking is about a block away.

Beds were very comfortable, AC was nice to have. One flight of steps up to the room.

Breakfast was the usual European fare. One thing that was awful was the coffee. I am not all that picky, but I swear they put ground black pepper in it.

Beja is an ok place to stop on the way to or from the Algarve. Seemed a little depressed when we were there, but a very lively street scene nonetheless.

I booked for 1 night while on my way to the Algarve. It is located in the historic pedestrian part of town, so you have to walk with your luggage. Upon my arrival I was directed to my room facing the street. It was very quiet at night. When I reached my room I found the air-con already on so it was wonderfully cool. My room was spacious and well furnished. There was a small LCD TV with about 20+ channels. There was a fairly large bathroom although I found the shower cubicle rather small. Everything was very clean. I paid an extra €5 for a balcony. In fact I got two, but the air-con unit sits on one of them so not much room. Both were extremely narrow so no way to put a table out there although you can squeeze a stool onto it. Staff were very helpful and kind and the wifi worked well.
Breakfast was very basic, cold meats & cheese etc, and no fresh hot drinks either. Good choice of breads though. I thought that it was good value for money for one or two nights. I would happily stay there again.

The location of the hotel, personel, breakfast all good. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, the rooms of medium size (but that is predictable in a mansion-based hotel).
As we were travelling with kids, the biggest issue was the lack of an elevator and the baby cots were simply too small :). Still if travelling through Beja, do consider it for a stop.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this wonderful, historic pension with its quirky decor. Spacious well appointed room with a small bathroom. Extremely friendly and helpful service. Located right in the middle of this delightful, low key, historic town. Great local restaurant right next door and easy walking distance along the cobbled streets to historic sights. Delightful stay.
