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.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Pousada de Arraiolos, Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, is situated in a sixteenth century convent presenting itself as an example in the art of recovery of historical buildings which combine traditional features with the concepts of modern architecture. The union between tradition and modernisms is celebrated in this Pousada with innovated luxury. During the middle ages the convent served the local evangelistic population. With the restoration into Pousada, the austerity gave way to joy, the simplicity of comfort and to penance to life's pleasures. Staying at this Pousada is a fantastic pretext for getting to know the town of Arraiolos, whose cultural heritage is world renowned, through its carpets which are a true work of art of tapestry. Guests of the Arraiolos hotel park for free on location. The centre of Arraiolos is 1.2 Km from Pousada de Arraiolos, Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, and 25 km from Evora. ... more less
