The pousada is very well located so that you can see most of the sights on foot. We upgraded to a suite in order to have a little more room. (We had read that the standard rooms were on the small size.) The suites are on the ground floor, facing on to a small private courtyard, while the standard rooms are on the upper floors. Our suite was large and well equipped, although I think the bathroom could use a little modernization. Breakfast was served in the restaurant which is in the former cloister. Very atmospheric and the breakfast itself was good. Service was uniformly pleasant and helpful. One of the best features was coming back after dark and seeing the Roman Temple of Diana illuminated against the night sky, with no tourists about.
If you come by car, there is parking available. Drive right up to the door, taking a parking spot, if available. If not, temporarily leave the car in front of the main entrance and go into reception. They will take your luggage and have someone take your car to their other parking area.

Location in amazing and the staff very helpful. The room was not as nice, especially considering the price. Needs renovation. They don't have proper showers or hair dryers. Breakfast was average. It is a nice hotel but it is not a good value for the money.

The conversion from a 15th century monastery is superb and its location adjacent to the remains of the Roman temple of Diana ,a bonus, similar to one experienced on a trip to Arles,France with the Arenas,Colesseum opposite our balcony. Both stunning and grand in scope and experience.

This accommodation is elegant,set in the original cloisters and neo classical facade of the 18th century. The rooms are as quiet as a church and are very comfortable. i heard grumbling in the lobby from people hooked on WiFi complaining for lack of reception....perhaps they should close their laptops and savour the generosity and splendour of this location and its proximity to Diana and the town.

Breakfast is a grand buffet experience with fresh salads and the best eggs ,anywhere. The combination of jambon crue,cheeses and local breads were heavenly.

Why would anyone want to go to a historical city and stay in a modern hotel? This hotel is great! My wife, my 5 y/o and I were impressed with this place. The location is perfect for walking around the city, parking is free, the service is great.

The pool is not great but lets be honest, if you go to Evora the pool is not a requirement. It is decent but not great.

Breakfast is included and it is really good buffet.

The WiFi service is terrible. No signal in the rooms and hardly anywhere in the hotel, really like traveling to the past.

The building is beautiful and a museum on its own. Right next to the roman ruins, the cathedral and the university. Blocks away from every attraction in Evora.

I would return to this Hotel without thinking it twice.

Room Tip: If you are planning to stay only 1 or 2 nights, and have an extra 50 or 80 euros, you might want to upgrade to the main suite on the second floor, it is one amazing room. Your partner will be very impressed.

We recently spent 2 nights at the Pousada dos Loios. From the time we walked in the hotel to the time we checked out, the front desk and the entire staff were first class. Always there if there is any question or assistance needed.
The suite is spacious and very comfortable. The amenities, linen, furniture are quite adequate.
The location cannot be better. Right next to the temple of Diana. One can walk to town and sightseeing sites very easily.
Breakfast food was delicious , hot and plentiful. The breakfast room is very pleasant ,near the former monastery courtyard.
Will certainly stay there if we return to Evora.

Room Tip: For patrons with reduced mobility the suite by the reception is very convenient. Absolutely no noise due to the thick walls , near the lobby and the entrance.

Dear Guest,

They are words such as yours that actually encourage us and motivate us to continue and improve our work. Our main goal every day is to give each client a Memorable stay.

I am very happy to see that you have enjoyed our Restaurant and the overall service.

As you say, the location is perfect since the Pousada is located in the center of Évora right next to the Roman Temple of Diana.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you once again in the Pousada of Évora.

Kind regards,
André Freire
