“Almost Perfect”
Reviewed January 2, 2010

Traveled with small infant and familiy for New Years Eve. Great location, nice and relaxing scenary, well dimensioned and confortable. This "pousada" or "inn" is a converted "convent", with its church and clausts.
Staff is professional and friendly. Suprised to see the amount of real art displayed. Great quality paitings and sculptures can be observed from several known portuguese artists.
The "almost" is due to the urgent maintenance that the hotel requires. Walls need to be repaired due to falling paint, room TV's are analogic, old and have bad signal. Missing a children's channel. Carpet corridor also require to be replaced. Rooms "key" holder was loose. Better climate control on areas near the restaurant (like the bathrooms) are really necessary.
In general quite happy with pousada and wish to go back.

The "Pousadas" is a group of lodgements in Portugal where you can stay in a very special way, very different from a ordinary hotel.
A "Pousada" is usually an historical building that is converted into a lodgment for tourists.
The Pousada of Arraiolos is an ancient Convent (it even has a chapel).
It's a very quiet and stilish place to stay. The Pousada it's a destination itself.
Unfortunatelly it's usually very expensive to stay in a Pousada (around Eur 150,00 a double room per night) but it's definitelly a beautiful place to relax and be in peace.

BMW Motoclube Portugal is traveling all year long having fun in Portugal. This year the proposal was the "Pousadas Itinerary". Each month the group discovers a different portuguese region and stays in a different Pousada. Arraiolos was the first month and Pousada. You know the feeling when you're sure you were wright? The option for the best portuguese touristic network was a perfect win from the first tour!
We arrived and were received by the professional and very polite Pousada staff. There are small things as a smile or a glass of a wonderful liquor ther prepare you for a wonderful weekend... This was only the check-in feeling. The rest of the weekend? Well, we sure know that it was perfect - every minute, thats the only reason why from january to july (because we don't ride during august - holidays) the majority of the club members have repeated and repeated the monthly trips and today we know seven more pousadas :-)
Concluding: the Pousada de Arraiolos staff is certainly one of Pousadas best assets. Not the only one. But to be fair we had to post this review recognising that it was the Pousada's best.
Thank you all.

This was our third Pousada in a short weekend break in Portugal and the best of them all.
The location is magnificent,the rooms comfortable and well sized,and the staff and breakfast buffet was great.We skipped dinner after 2 bad experiences with dinner at 2 previous Pousadas but everything else was magnificent.
Definitely reccomended in any trip to Portugal and just 1.5 hrs from Lisbon.

Found out about this place through www.pousada.com, and it was wonderful. Great staff, beautiful location, and in the town we found beautiful rugs to purchase (the famous "Arroiolos Tapetes").

The rooms were immaculate. Fun place!

This was our first trip with children in portugal, and we really looked forward to living in Pousadas. After two disappointing days at the Pousada in Santiago do Cacem, arriving in Arraiolos was an amazing experience for all senses! The beautiful architecture, the excellent lemonfresh smell of the hotel, the lovely pan flute background music and the wonderful peacful untouched nature around the pousada swept us off our feet! The hotel is elegant, luxurious yet keeping the strict feel of the original monastery. The staff was extremely competent, sweet and attentive. The pool was lovely, although not so big. All in all, paying 160 euros per night for a full suite with two extra beds was excellent value for money. Go!
