I stayed at the 'Evora Hotel' during a conference that could create a chaotic environment, but that was not the case.
The 'Evora Hotel' is located outside the historical center which makes it more distant from your day -to-day sight seeing, but grants you less confusion from other travellers.
The hotel is big: its size is visible from the outside as well as on the inside. Getting from the end of the hall to the closest elevator will take a bit of courage. However, extra interior and exterior space is not left to waste. There is a large outside pool (although the weather and time of year denied a chance of using it) and the lobby area is full of tables, sofas and places to have a talk, relax, work and have some fun.
The rooms - at least the one I stayed in - was spacious and had everything you need and expect. A double bed, television (mix of portuguese and spanish channels), a sofa, a 'table', your mini-bar, a safe; the bathroom also had your hygiene offerings. We were also able to grab a room with a view to the pool. The only problem with the room was the sound isolation. You could easily hear when others were taking a shower or leaving/entering their rooms (or talking in the hall).
Lastly, considering breakfast, it too had everything you would expect: cereals, eggs and bacon, fruit, cofee, toast, cake.
The personnel are polite and helpful and the value is acceptable (even though we got a special price because of the conference).
In general, while a bit out of the center, the spaciousness is worth the stay. It's a nice, big hotel.
