Reviewed January 16, 2013

We had 2 nights in this Pousada and enjoyed it so much. The location is fabulous, right beside Roman ruins and close to a museum and many cafes. We picked 2 superior rooms that were large with 2 seating areas. The rooms were very quiet. The only drawback was the cold bathroom. The heater kept our bedroom warm but the washroom had no heating so it was chilly. The reception area had a fireplace, couches and bar area that was lovely to relax in. The reception staff were helpful in making our stay comfortable. I would definitely try to spend a night or two here, Evora is a fabulous area to explore.

Room Tip: If you are traveling in winter season, pick a room with a bathroom beside the bedroom. Some rooms ha...

Nice location just opposite the Roman ruins. The building is great. Our rooms were quite small but nice. I would stay there again but would pick a larger room. Good breakfast in a very nice location. I will never forget the amazingly fresh and still warm pasteis de nata. A reason to wake up really early for breakfast.

Converted convent that is now a pousada (a sort of public-private partnership of hotels from natural and historic sites). It could not be in a better location. The ruins of the Roman forum are literally outside the door. Nice, clean room with a big European bathtub. It's not as spectacular as some of the other pousadas, but it's really nice. Good breakfast spread too.

Perfect location at the top of the old town, right next to the cathedral and the roman temple.in one direction there are stunning views of the surrounding countryside and on the other little cobbled streets fan out to the town. A large cool foyer hung with huge tapestries, a great stone staircase to the vaunted corridors leading to the rooms. The rooms are not huge but they are big enough and the bathrooms are stylish with roll top baths and huge was hand basins. Bed really comfortable with the highest quality linen and down pillows.
We ate posh ale trejo food in the cloisters. It was very good but not breathtaking. Sat round open fire with reasonably priced drinks in the large, comfortable lounge.breakfast superb. Staff friendly and attentive. Recommended

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are slightly bigger than others. If you care ask for a larger one.

We stayed in a suite with frescos on the walls. Thought that was the coolest, until we got to breakfast. The old cloister of this convent has been glassed in from the small orange grove garden, and is used as a restaurant. There was homemade quince marmalade, which I did not want to stop eating (but, alas, did) and pumpkin jam, which was suprisingly delicious.

The Pousada is located right in the center of Evora, next to the cathedral. They did a wonderful job refurbishing this old convent and everything was done in good taste. The bedrooms were evidently built in place of the cells of the monks and they are not luxury bedrooms, but they are comfortable, quiet and clean. The restaurant is located in the old cloister and the decor is beautiful, but the food is not outstanding and the service is somewhat hurried.

Overall it is a very good place to stay in Evora.

The building is quite nice, but our room at the second floor was of poor quality.
Someone expects such a room in a 2-star hotel, the room is adequate in size, but poorly furnished. The carpet is worn, even fraying.
The paint on the rabbets of the windows is peeling, there are even pieces out of the rabbets.
We saw ants walk from the roof into the room.
We suppose the rooms on the lower two levels are much better. Unfortunately we did not stay there.

Room Tip: If you intend to stay in this pousada then ask for a room at one of the two lower floors
