First of all, let me tell you that this is not a negative review of the Residencial Policarpo, but just a little note in order to avoid bad surprises.

We spent just 1 night with my family at the end of May. At the time of the reservation I was asked if I wanted 2 rooms with a view and said yes, just for a little "treat". The person was very nice and also made an exception as far is the arrival time and booking guarantee are concerned. I was very grateful and made sure I called on the way to Evora to confirm everything.

The residencial was very easy to find and the system in the whole town to indicate hotels & C is excellent. We arrived by car, so we could immediately park and forget all about the car! The building is very ancient but has certainly a lot of charm.

The staff was very friendly and spoke good English and Italian and we were given our room with a view. There was a view on the Alentejo plain, very nice, the rooms were simple but nicely decorated. The bathrooms need refurbishing and are not very nice, but they are clean, which is what matters.

The problem is that the side of the residencial that gives on the Alentejo is also exposed on the cobbled street and car pass all the time until late at night. People of my party could not really sleep because the noise was there despite of the double glazing.

Breakfast is correct but no more.

I suggest that you choose the rooms which give on the patio: they are far more silent and the patio is really charming. If you insist to admire the Alentejo from your double glazed window, make sure you bring your earplugs!

Gay couple who spent just 1 night here in June, 2005. This hotel was extremely hard to get to. Evora is a charming hilly city with narrow streets that all go only one way. The hotel's website doesn't provide a good set of directions, and trying to find a map that accurately reflects the warren of streets was impossible. It took about 45 minutes of driving around and around to find the place. We had trouble finding a way onto the street that the parking places are on. It was an adventure!

We had rooms with baths, and they were a reasonable size. Nothing fancy, just simple, clean furniture. We got a small terrace as well, which wasn't really functional for more than standing and taking a snapshot, but added some charm.

Breakfast was included, and it was serviceable. The best part about it was eating it on the outdoor terrace they have.

The hotel is very close to major sights, and was fairly quiet. The air conditioning (again) was not so great in the heat of summer.

We dealt with one desk staff person several times, and she was erratic to the point where we thought she had some sort of mood disorder! More than a little odd, to the point of rude sometimes, other times very friendly and helpful. strange.

Overall, a terrific place to stay for not very much money. Our room was 50e.

Last weekend we have been in Residential Policarpo in Évora. It is situated in the City Historic Center, 100 m far from «Praça do Giraldo», close to the Sé. The building is from the XVI century and the decoration, offers the taste of Alentejo.

ÉVORA, is the capital the province of «Alto Alentejo», and it was founded in the Celtic period and dignified as city and municipality by the Roman Emperors in the First Century A.D. It was then named «Liberalitas Julia». In 1165, during the reign of the first Portuguese King D. Afonso Henriques. ÉVORA was reconquered to the Arabs by Giraldo (“The without afraid”). Its military, religious and cultural history is vast and very rich.

ÉVORA was been classified as WORLD HERITAGE by UNESCO, with a medieval atmosphere and its fascinating monumental and historical buildings can be visit. We can put in relief the D. Manuel Palace and its magnificent garden, the S. Francisco Church and its Boone Chapel, the Diana temple (Roman Goddess), the Cathedral, the Cartuxa´s Convent or the Almendre´s prehistoric monumental stone in Guadalupe.

Close to Évora, we had visited Vila Viçosa, an Historical Village for centuries, where we could visit the National Palace, that was in time a Royal Residence.

In "Reguengos de Monsaraz" we could visit the "Herdade do Esporão" (famous wine producer) and observe all the process to produce the wine and also having a wine tasting.

In S. Pedro do Corval, a Typical Alentejo Village, very famous by its handicraft pottery.

Evoramonte is a Village with a high historical interest where we can visit the Castle as well the traditional handicraft.

Also we had experienced Bike ride, Motto 4, Land-vehicles as, well a Kart competition that is nearby.
In Residencial Policarpo we have a fantastic view to the city, only a few minutes we can reach the famous Praça do Giraldo, the Diana’s Temple, the Bonne Chapel and, all the wonderful places that Évora can present to us.
This is a very old establishment, located on the Historical Center of Évora.

We have been also in Monsaraz, a Very Old Historical Village built inside the walls of its Castle, and we could observe one cultural and artistic patrimony in high standard. Just five minutes away from Alqueva. Nearby Évora, Monsaraz enjoys a privileged view of Alqueva, new Alentejo'ss lagoon.
