Relaxing. Nice luxury
beautiful and interesting building, with small but comfortable rooms, in a wonderful location. insufficient front desk and dining room staff leading to delays.
rooms beautiful, great atmosphere, very clean. Need to mention front desk very helpful and pleasant.
The well preserved old architecture and good service. Fantastic spaces and displays.
Staff became friendlier during the stay. Experience was less than average. Too expensive for what is offered. Maintenance is poor. Service was average. Key chain makes a lot of noise when opening and bothers all neighbors. The place has so much potential. The building itself is amazing, perfect setting to do a great Posada.
The hotel is characterful. Our room was small but quaint, it used to be a monks cell. The restaurant was pricey but food was reasonaly good. Location is excellent for exploring within the city walls of Evora. Bar was seemingly open but left unstaffed .
We enjoyed the ambience. Last visit in 1974 during the revolution. Staff and surroundings were. excellent. Would definately recommend to others. The food was not as good as we thought it would be. Service excellent, but food fell short.
The location of the place, and the atmosphere. Relative small room, but as expected.
The quality of service and accommodation
convenient location helpful staff at front desk no elevator so bags had to be carried but front desk staff did assist us
situation and comfortt in the rooms the breakfast room is not isolated so too much noise in our room early in the morning
The location of this place can't be beat. It was in the old town, on an old cobbled street right above a main square in town. The street was too narrow for our taxi, but the walk was short from the main square. The walls were not thick so there were some street noises heard from our room. Also, shampoo came in little foil containers rather than bottles and there was no conditioner.
Very nice hotel. Great location and atmosphere Problem with the shower. The nozzle would not stay in the wall bracket as it was broken.
The hotel is lovely. The staff was great. Wonderful location. Good breakfast. No elevator
The room was small but comfortable. There was a bed already prepared for our baby, at no extra cost. The staff was nice and helpful. The bathroom was small, and the shower doors weren't properly attached to the walls. It has no lift and the parking is not closer to the hotel.
Location perfect. Staff helped with our luggage from the car park. Breakfast was excellent. Recommended restaurant, San Antao, was good value for good food. This is not about the hotel but it was a little difficult to find.
Location to historical attractions, friendly and quality service, authenicity of building structure with good updated amenities, quiet at night, extremely well maintained and clean
A little gem of a hotel, just off the main square. Gleaming clay-tiled floors, whitewashed walls, crisp white linen - a very traditional feel. Spotlessly clean.
I found the location of the hotel perfect, very close to both Praca do Giraldo and Se Catedral de Evora. The room was very clean and the hotel staff was helpful. The reasonable rate was an additional point that I liked the hotel. Nothing.
Small room but with a comfortable large bed. No noise at night. No mini-bar. Maybe the free park is a bit small, but we had luck and got a free parking space.
Staff friendly. Perfect hotel to use as base for driving and exploring the region. Had a problem one night with plumbing and they immediately provided new room. Could not complain about anything. Great breakfast for only €5.50. Short walk to town centre, which has lots of good restaurants. No hesitation in recommending to anyone. All good.
Hotel staff was friendly, free parking in front of the hotel Airco was not very good, and the room was very small
The hotel is cheap, very nice and in a strategic position for visiting the city. The principal coach station (buses to/from Lisbon and other major Portugat cities) is nearby. Rooms are clean and staff nice.
location was excellent in Evora room was a standard comfortable hotel room and staff were helpful
Location near to historical town There were no coffee/tea making factilites in room
Excellent location, nice staff. good breakfast. Bar open 24h. Breakfast is not included in the price:(
Very pleasant helpful receptionists,with excellent English.Good position just outside the walls of Evora,therefore parking easy. Obviously this is a chain hotel and perfectly adequate for an overnight stay,but having found many other far more individual/luxurious hotels for much the same price on Priceline during our month-long stay in Spain and Portugal we would only choose Ibis if other choices were not available.
location to town. the breakfast and staff.Good customer service
The relationship price-quality, the people were very nice and helpful, great location.
The swimming pool :-)
Beds were a little too firm
swimming pool there is a lot of noises during the night from pipes
cleanliness, welcoming, helpful staff. Log fire in the evening. Good food
The location is very good - an easy stroll into the old walled town. Big room, plenty of space. Breakfast buffet very good. Scrambled eggs were made of real eggs (see earlier review). The orange "juice" & "coffee" was not good though. Were able to find free parking spot right outside the hotel door. The hideous lumpy pillows. The management should replace them asap. The fridge in our room likewise needs replacing. It was far too noisy. Very limited tv channel options. No satellite tv channels as advertised. Bathroom a bit tired & tatty - chipped basin & tiles. Tiles need re- grouting. Corridor outside had rather dirty looking floor. Would recommend this hotel for it's location, but it's in need of a really good makeover
It was cheap at €35 a night - it was comfortable. A better internet connection would improve the place
Ideal location just outside city walls. Staff wonderful. Room perfect, clean, and spacious. Breakfast best we had anywhere on our month long trip.
Touring the area We felt the hotel although clean, was in need of a facelift. The whole place was very tired.
Peace and quiet of countryside, breaking only with dog's barking and cock's shouting, sunrise in olive trees grove, clear and cool air in the morning (beginning of October) coffee (like in other hotels in Portugal)))) should contain more coffee; old-fashioned bed is a bit high and narrow (afraid to fall down)))); other guest's shouting at 6 o'clock in the Sunday morning (probably after returning from night club)
Wonderful location, fantastic views and spotlessly clean Misled when told that hotel 1.5km from Evora, more like 4 to centre
Very new, courteous staff, beautiful location, nice place. Difficult to find but with located with good instructions by reception on the phone.
The room was growing mould,the bed was damp,I cannot remember a worse hotel and it is not a quinta,it is a smallholiday complex,no old house in sight. Zero out of ten
The hotel provided an excellent base for exploring the region, and we would have liked to try the swimming pool but the temperatures had dropped slightly. Would have liked coffee/tea maker in the room.
Very enjoyable stay, highly professional staff, wonderful rooms, clean and comfortable, great design touches, convenient location (but not right in the centre) extensive breakfast buffet, handy to access by car, including underground car parking. I thought the gym would be a bit bigger, I didnt use it it but it appeared adequate for cardio exercise.
We enjoyed everything. Restaurant Degust'Ar is a must . Good value for the money
The hotel design,general aspect, bathrooms, colour scmemes. gardens/patio. Not enough sun-beds for the no. of guests by the pool, not enough choice of sun or shade for the direction of the sun around the pool. Pool itself relatively small for the no. of families with children using it. The fact that the dining /breakfast room is almost entirely without daylight or view.
fantastic hotel . the room we have was with the garden and aqueduct view . the food at the restaurant was great and good price . it is a 5 stars hotel
Beautifull hotel with great rooms and relaxing options. Nicely located in Evora. Very modern en beautifull design. Unfortunately not enough beds in swimming area, so had to lie on the grass - for 5 star-hotel not acceptable.
I have nothing but the very best to say about the hotel. It was an excellenet hotel. It was by far the best of the five hotels we stayed at during our 9 day trip to portugal. The room was superb, the service was great and the food was outstanding. Evora is a fascinating city and it can be used as a base to discover sites like Marvao.
The outstanding architecture, the amazing staff, the restaurant and the general atmosphere of the hotel. The pool should be bigger and have more beds.
Service was excellent. Always prompt, informative and welcoming. Buffet Breakfast and Dinner was fantastic! The pool and sauna were very relaxing! We truly enjoyed this "jewel" in the heart of the historic side of Evora. Will definately stay again and will recommend this luxurious hotel to family and friends. Cannot think of anything negative to say about this hotel
I was surprised how nice it was once I got there, forgot what it was liked when I booked it. The rooms were so lovely and was a nice treat for my birthday. Pool was nice, but the spa was a bit more basic than what I thought. It is next to an amazing wall, the garden was beautiful. Very close walk into the main part. Children friendly which is a plus. I Loved Evora and if I got to go again, I would stay here for sure.
A delightful place for a few days. The staff were very helpful. Our bedroom - my wife is disabled - was perfect. One of the best hotels we have stayed in. Half board dinner menu doesn't change. Staying for three nights gives very limited choice.
Breakfast service/ entrance not expedite. Staff not fast enough despite the empty tables in the room.
Central to the area we wanted to explore High drinks prices
The overall facilities including the swimming pool. We would have liked tea/coffee facilities in the bedroom.
The helpfulness and friendlyness of the reception staff. The location, close to Evora but with its own private parking. The grounds where you could relax in the afternoon. The dining experience. Better visit restaurants in Evora if you want to experience good Portuguese cooking and hospitality.
Reception staff excellent, dinner buffet good value, location slightly out of town. Car parking on site. Evora is a walled city well worth a look
everything shut down after midnight
All staff were very friendy, room was clean and confortable. Long breackfast hours was very nice for a relaxing weekend.
everthing... i recommend it.
Excellent hotel. I recommend it to all the travellers Only the location is a bit far from the city center, but you can use the rented bikes.
Comfortable, nice, good breakfast, free car parking.
The design room is fantastic. The spa is great. The sauna wasn t working. The breakfast and the food from the room service is average considering the highest remarks i heard.
It's a very quite and relaxing hotel. The spa is very pleasant. The decoration is amazing. The rates are high.
The Convent and it's recent renovations the quietness of the surroundings and the Convent
simply perfect. Free internet. some shade on the terrace would be more than welcome
Room spacious, wonderful view, grounds interesting, excellent dining No
Excelent hotel, great stay, very relaxed enviroment. A perfect mix of modern with the ancient. One of the best hotels in Portugal
Facilities and architecture are excellent. Food is good, well presented but over priced for quality. Sommelier is excellent. Poor service from reception staff at arrival. No porter, no explanation of facilities and no welcome drink.
Divinus restaurant is a beautiful setting for a meal. Despite the staff's best efforts, the wireless internet wasn't working during my stay.
The setting of the hotel is superb and a great attention to detail in carrying out the refurbishment Service at times was slow
Interesting building full of character with friendly and helpful staff. Well presented breakfast. On site carparking and close to city centre. Very basic large suite but interesting! Heating is limited (we were there end of Dec). We asked for extra heating which was quickly provided.
Hospitality of staff, design and theme of hotel, local knowledge of staff, WiFi internet connection which is free
Location was central to main attractions, staff were extremely friendly and helpful and common areas of the hotel are comfortable and attractive.
Warm welcome, comfortable rooms/bed, wonderful conversion of 16C Olive Mill with lovely spaces to relax, fabulous organic breakfast, helpful staff, safe car park, free Internet.
This is a wonderful place, a 16th century olive oil mill turned into a hotel. Rustic but in good taste, extremely comfortable, spotless, and with a warm, helpful staff. Frankly, my stay in Evora was made even more pleasant on account of my staying at the Albergaria do Calvario.
The owners and staff were absolutely fantastic - very helpful and kind!
Hotel with great style, in the old town. The first night was double booked but the hotel found us an alternative prior to our arrival. Furthermore we were given a discount and the best room in the hotel. So in the end a good experience from a bad start.
I loved the breakfast. For the first time I got hot eggs for breakfast which was a lovely surprise. The hotel is designed very well and rooms are nice, a bit cold, but very clean. The lovely little lawn in front of the hotel is perfect for reading and chilling in the sun. The staff is very warm and beautiful and I found a special brown friend forever.
Phenomenal hotel tucked inside the old walled city of Evora. Everything within the walled part of the city is easily accessible by foot and the hotel staff is incredibly helpful with recommendations and making reservations to delicious local restaurants. The breakfast provided at the hotel is the best we've ever indulged in while on vacation in Europe. The room was first class and the price was very reasonable. Evora is an amazing place but this hotel in and of itself is worth the trip!
This is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed! Pete, Nina and their staff were so helpful and attentive. If you enjoy a really relaxed place to stay with big comfy sofas, and locally sourced products with a central location you need to stay here. In the year they have been in business Pete&Nina have made great stridescan't praise them enough We shall be returning!!! The place is a little hard to find due to Portuguese signs but thats all. Oh Peter needs to get some teapots for the English, you know how we love our tea!!
The location. It was near the train station and also by the seaside. It was very convenient to wonder around. In the night, it was noisy. My room was facing to the road and I heard many people passing through sometimes shouting.
Silence and rest No
Helpful staff, well situated hotel
Large balcony, ease of parking, good location to access town
good location, clean rooms, excellent breafast the beds were too hard for us
The front desk check-in person was very helpful..and answered all of our questions
Very plastic, and religious
It's a good location, the hotel and the room are very clean, the staff was very friendly and we had a great breakfast. Very satisfied. The room was small and a little noisy and the parking is not so big.
The beds were very uncomfortable -- hard mattresses.
I liked very much the room ( the colors are warm), the staff (people are kind and they are smiling all the time), it is very clean indead, and I liked the food.
Excellent hotel for the price with first class WiFi, shame we only stayed overnight. The breakfast was well thought out and presented. The receptionist spoke English like a native and was very helpful. Minor points only:- There is no lift to the rooms which are all on the first floor, but the staff offered to help us with the luggage. The shower was only warm unless you let it run for a good while which then ran lovely and hot.
Everything was perfect. Just few km from Evora. Nice room, nice restaurant, nice staff.
Clean, modern, good breakfast. This is a simple hotel, close to the high way, but for what it offers it is excellent.
Hotel is quite new - clean bright & airy. The bathroom had a large cubicle with a powerful & versatile shower and a very generous vanity shelf around the hand-basin gave plenty of space for toiletries, wash-bags etc. The outdoor pool & terrace had plenty of seating with pleasant views. There was ample parking to the front of the Hotel. Food & wine were good and not expensive.The staff were very helpful with hints and directions. We struggled to understand the Menu without an English version
Nice hotel, freindly very helpful staff, excellent brekfrest with a lot of choices, perfect cleaning of the rooms, if you stay there for more than day, don't miss to try the evening buffet.
Everything.staff w ere very helpfull and very good value for money .food was excellent A bit far from evora town
Hotel staff were effficient and spoke good English. Good breakfast. Big room with balcony and comfortable bed. You need a car to stay here as the hotel is out of town and on the highway, but noise was not a problem.
Basic hotel, but very clean, modern design and great location.
This hotel is the perfect choice in Evora. Great location near the main square, super clean and modern. As a boutique hotel, rooms are small, but quite fine. The beds are ridiculously comfortable. Ample garage parking for 5 euros per day. Location, parking, service, comfy beds.
We booked this hotel on a whim after deciding to leave Faro a day early. It was perfect. Easy to find, the front desk attendant was really helpful, the room was simple and clean. All in all a great value for the money.
Clean and new with free wifi Nothing
Quiet, comfortable, good location, plenty of character for the price. Initially wifi wasn't working and girl at reception insisted it was. Next morning I noticed there were no lights flashing on the router and the morning receptionist gave the plug a smack and it all came to life.
convenience of parking car even though we had to pay more money. We loved the atmosphere and the beautiful buidling and the convenience of the situation. The beds, of course, are Portuguese therefore unsuitable for larger and taller people... just not big enough for two people really. THis would have put me off staying longer there although I loved it.
Location & homely feel Parking fee
Staff very friendly smell of mildew in the bathroom ,shower and bath was in disrepair
The staff was friendly and helpful The beds were too hard and no tourist literature in English
A lovely old buiding in a great situation. Evora is amazing. Plain but comfortable rooms. Decent breakfast. Great staff.
The decor is delightful and this conveniently located hotel provided excellent ambience, value, location and facilities for our stay in the wonderful town of Evora. Having reception upstairs meant no 'welcome mat' on entry. But it is a lovely old building and no doubt the structure dictates its functionality.
The hotel has perfect location, easy was to park a car, the building was very old and interesting and special. The staff was extreamly helpful and nice The room was too small, the door and lock on the door didn´t look very safe. The safe in the room was too small for the laptop. Breakfast was usual continental breakfast but was advertised as homemade breakfast and I expected something more taste.
Great location with available car parking right in front of hotel, very friendly people, Evora is an historic old town and the hotel is right in the old town but easy to get to. not applicable
wonderful position in an old fashion palace
This hotel is has an excellent location and a very friendly and helpful staff. The owner went far out of his way to assist us. The facility is an old building full of amazing antiques. It has modern conveniences, spacious rooms, and is exceptionally well maintained. There is no elevator.
Wonderful 19th century atmosphere
Its central location
An interesting setting and atmosphere. Staff/owner friendly and helpful (at short notice he put up a friend of mine).
It was a very pleasant stay. The owner was very welcoming and made us feel at home. The hotel was a beautiful old home, but had wonderful bathroom amenities, good lighting, and a good breakfast
It is a wonderful place, clean, classy and near everything no, everything was fine.
Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. Place was beautiful - lots of very old things to look at.
it was a sort of a time travel experience
The house was in the center of the historic district, and itself was very atmospheric. There was an actual suit of armour in the hall and a sedan chair. Our suite was very interesting and the old fashioned bed comfortable. The breakfast was good. Was difficult to find, as I had not printed out the map.
Liked the personal service of the owner of this mansion. In fact, he was the only person running the place. However, the best thing was the location, It was smack in the centre of Evora. Undercover, security parking for an additional cost was good. The suite was spacious and quiet. Bright and sunny rooms. Starting to be a bit run down but made up for it with its ambience of a very old mansion seeped in history. Bed was too short in spite of one person only being 1.8 metres tall. Stairs steep and would be difficult for a non-agile person to negotiate especially if carrying heavy suitcases. There is no lift and the owner was unable to assist in carrying the suitcases.
The staff was extremely helpful, the building was lovely, good price, nice breakfast, very close to the university, very quiet, good location. Shortage of hot water.
Missing a heater in the room
The old-fashioned decor and the kindness and helpfulness (and excellent English) of staff. The wifi in my room didn't work too well... but there is a free computer that can be used upstairs.
the rooms and building are beautiful (restoration of a classic building) and very comfortable. Location in the center, with private parking, is very good too. breakfast was poor
I loved the design of the hotel and its proximity to the University of Evora. The offer of free internet and having breakfast included was great. Obviously the building is very old but the plumbing was not the best. a cold shower one morning and drains seemed to be a bit blocked.
