We stayed here as part of a lovely Titan Tour of Northern Portugal. This property is set in the countryside with lovely views & the sounds of goat bells tinkling! It is very tranquil. The rooms have wi-fi & are large with a beautiful, huge marble bathroom. We had water & fruit in the room on arrival after a welcome...

This pousada is situated at the bottom of a difficult track (road) away from Arraiolos but with a good view up to the 'castle'. Hard walking for anyone to reach. The hotel is split into two parts, those rooms in the original monastic building and those in the modern extention. We had a room in the old part which was...

The Pousada Convento de Arraiolos, dating from XIV century, is situated outside of Arraiolos, and the walk into the town is about a mile, and uphill! The pousada is very quiet and beautifully converted into a hotel. The original church, with it's wonderfully decorated interior of blue and white tiles depicting various scenes of saints and their miracles, is attached...

The Pousada is in an idyllic valley. Your approach takes you down a cobbled road trough fields with sheep, bells around their neck dinging. Lovely views all around and to the town and fort of Arraiolos. The view of the square church tower with 8 huge bells, huge carved church portal promises to make the stay memorable. Reception staff very...

Having read good reviews on Tripadvisor I was really looking forward to this visit. The pousada is in a beautiful location and has a lovely, historic, integral church. However, the place is a health and safety nightmare with no hand rails to the many stairs and steps, some of which you don't expect. Not a place to take your older...

This hotel has the potential to be great but unfortunately disappointed at every turn. Upon checking in we were given a twin rather than double room as requested.

Just a beautiful, historic place, like many pousadas. Great breakfast, very good service, always a pleasure. Pousadas are consistently good. This one has a beautiful view of the hill, a very pleasant pool, and an amazing little church covered with azulejos.

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
