“Lovely hotel, and the best customer service we´ve ever had.”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We loved Evora and the whole region, as we came in early May, when the fields are full of wildflowers, and the temp is perfect. The hotel was, however, the best thing about this whole part of our trip. When we arrived, the staff was not only gracious and friendly, but Carla immediately sat down with us on the terrace with a glass of wine to find out our interests and needs and to introduce us to sites in the area, the facilities of the hotel, their favorite restaurants, etc. The exceptional level of service continued throughout our stay.. and we extended for 2 more nights just to enjoy the area, the hotel and the town.... and the food. The breakfast buffet is the best we´ve had so far (organic too..) and fresh baked goodies.

Room Tip: Get a superior room .. only a few euro more and worth it.

For us it was a perfect hotel, beautiful, comfortable and with great service - great design with books and games and lots of space in the general lounge area - staff who are friendly and attentive without being fawning - and a fabulous healthy home made breakfasts - fruit, freshly squeezed fruit juice (orange-strawberry was a favourite) - amazing cakes and muesli and eggs and bacon - you can tell I'm still salivating over their breakfasts. evora is a beautiful town and the Albergaria is the place to stay - and they go out of their way to help organize activities like an amazing biking trip that was perfect for the whole family along a 10k eco-trail. rooms were very comfortable and attractive, we had a suite with a separate room for our 5 yr old and a massive kingsize bed that we could have fit the cousins in as well. And if you have kids, evora is great as there is a beautiful park with a zip wire and fun little playground, there are go-carts for the older kids further out, and the great bike trail. the whole area around evora was stunning - if you like beautifully preserved hilltop towns and castles, rolling hills etc its highly recommended.

From the first minute walked in the hotel we were very welcomed by the hotel staff and
they gave us a very helpful orientation about the town of Evora, good restaurants etc..
I can see that all staff love working in this hotel and love
Evora very much. They speak also excellent English.
The room was a bit dark but quiet, clean and spacious.
Good bed and comfortable.
The bathroom is also very spacious and the amenity kit
is a great quality.
Breakfast.... so good!!! There are lots of local organic products.
The breakfast room has warm and bright atmosphere. Also the
staffs in the breakfast room are very friendly and efficient.
Made our day very good!
Relaxing and lovely hotel, good food and excellent staff team!!
Plus this hotel is located inside the center of Evora, so
you could reach everywhere quite easily by walk.
It is too bad that we stayed only one night.
I'll definitely go back again. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful stay at Albergaria do Calvario. You will never stay at a hotel where the staff is more friendly and helpful--not possible. All of our interactions were extremely pleasant. Carla and Carolina warrant special mention. Carla acted as if she was our personal hostess for the visit. Carolina checked us out and, in response to a question from me, offered to send some information about local pottery producers. Within a couple of hours she had emailed a wealth of helpful information.

The rooms are not luxurious but they are very nice. The common areas are very inviting, and you'll often see guests sitting in the lounge or courtyard and relaxing. The breakfasts were over the top--wonderful. Three kinds of fresh juices (try the carrot-strawberry mix), several choices of freshly baked breakfast cakes, eggs to order, gourmet hams, etc.

Whoever manages this hotel does a wonderful job.

We were greeted as we arrived by several members of the "Calvario" team. First, they were able to accommodate a last minute change that requested an additional night for a three person room. When we arrived, they parked our car for us, gave us a book of recommendations on things to see, visit, restaurants in Evora. The staff always had a smile for us and continually asked if we were enjoying ourselves and if they could do anything for us. The breakfast was outstanding! Not only a large buffet of very high quality items but would also make hot items to order for the guests. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. We would love to come back to Evora just to stay at the hotel!

What a welcome! Superb greeting by the young members of staff. Underground parking by a member of staff. We were allocated the 'apartment', which although much bigger than our needs for one night, was a lovely. Super breakfast choice and the added surprise of bottles of water on departure.
It is amazing what a difference a smile and a friendly gesture can make Other hotels could learn a lot from the enthusiastic crew at the Albergaria do Calvario. Well done and keep up the good work.
All this and just an easy walk into town, no need for the car!

Wish we could have stayed longer. The staff were great and very helpful; the room was lovely; the breakfast was one of the best we had on our trip (and considering the way the Portuguese hotels and inns put on breakfast that is saying a lot) -- lots of local produce and specialties, great selection, nice setting. One caution, it can be difficult to find if you aren't careful -- Evora is an old town with small, narrow streets and getting to the Albergaria was an adventure in itself! And definitely ask them for recommendations on local restaurants. They didn't steer us wrong!
