“Terrible experience”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

This could be an isolated sewer problem but the bathroom was soo smelly that after waking at 5:00am we couldn't fell back asleep. Tried to open the room window but some guys were yelling down the street. So smelly that we didn't want to take the shower in the morning. Ran away as fast as we could.

Too bad, room was definitely very pretty and central. Staff is very nice too.

This is a comfortable B&B located right in the center of Evora. I stayed there only one night, mainly due to its location, reviews in Linkedin and pictures. It is fine just for one night. It has no lift. Wifi does not reach all the floors. Rooms are just fine if your expectations are not too high as they are not very wide and bathroom is small. Breakfast is poor in variety. It is located in the main square in Evora, so it is good to explore the city and its main atractions which are close to it. However, parking in the sorroundings is a nightmare. You will have to leave the car in a private parking or far from the hotel. The people running the hotel are very helpful and nice.

Great little hotel overlooking the main square. The room was large and nicely decorated, the common lounge was comfortable. The hotel doesnt have wifi, but there is free wifi in the square below!

We stayed here for one night in April. We arrived early - the room was not ready, but Elisa was very friendly and welcoming. She offered us coffee, let us hang around in the comfy lounge and gave us helpful hints on local places to eat etc. The room was cosy and comfortable... I hadn't booked it for the design as much as for its location (right at the main placa) and value (Euro 50) ... but the decor was certainly interesting!

They didn't have wifi when we were there in early April, although wired internet was available in the rooms and there was a computer for guest use in the lounge. Also, breakfast was not included (although available on payment) and it doesn't have a lift/elevator...

lovely designed rooms, friendly and helpfull people, the most comfortable bed I've slept in during my travels and located directly on the main square, but with closed windows you hartly hear the bustle in the streets. Evora is a lovely city, but our stay at this place made the visit even better.

We had high expectations of the only design hotel in town but it was definitely worth it. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed, were shown our room on the 3rd floor (3.4) and we allowed to come into the lounge at any time to check in.
The room was spacious and clean and the beds are just amazing. It was nice and quiet, we had a view at the cathedral and the shutters kept all the light outside.
The location is absolutely brilliant because it's right at the main square.
We also received some good tips on where to eat (Cafe Alentejo) and what to see in town.
Breakfast in the morning was good and also the lounge is a nice place to chill out and where you can pick up free wifi.
We can recommend this place to everyone!
