Reviewed 31 August 2013

This was our first night crossing over from Spain into Portugal and this hotel was a stopover on the way to the Algarve. It was clean and comfortable. The pool area was a nice surprise and the setting was great. It is well placed for the old town and the views of the Roman aqueduct at night are gorgeous.
However, the lady on the desk was rude. I booked all of our stopovers en-route, once we liked the look of a place or got tired of driving. We arrived in Elvas at 2:00pm having just booked through Booking.com. The receptionist/manager seemed very put out that we had not booked with direct with the hotel and made a point of the 'special price' we had paid. She recorded both of our passports and swiped my credit card ' for security'. She then told us we were too early to check in -the cleaner saw what was happening and intervened telling us that a room was ready.
Other than this it was a decent stopover

This Modern hotel is well situated just outside the old city walls. It overlooks the aqueduct and within walking distance (uphill) to the centre. The hotel has good accommodation, a swimming pool and serves a decent breakfast. Overall a good place to stay when visiting Elvas.

After 21 years without visiting Elvas this was really a good choice to stay, big room, the buffet food was good specially the main course nice breakfast. The different areas of the hotel are spacious, such as the bar the smoking room, a bath at the swimming pool was good and made the difference from the heat of Alentejo.

This is a modern hotel which is 10 minutes walk from the very centre of Elvas and the room rate was very reasonable. It has the most fantastic views of the aqueduct which is almost within touching distance. A busy road passes right outside of the hotel but we did not notice the traffic at all and slept very well which we needed to having just come from Spain where hotels can be very noisy!
Buffet breakfast was very satisfactory. Staff were friendly, helpful and very courteous.

First of all I have to say that Elvas is small but very nice city.
The hotel is in a nice location easy to find (as most things in Elvas), has recently renovated rooms, but not 100% renovated. The closet deserves some new doors as the existing ones just do not close! Anyhow, the bathroom is clean and modern, the room has a nice decor and the price was very, but very good. The staff is very courteous and is always ready to help you. Breakfast is good. If you manage to get a low rate as 50,00 Euros, don't think twice!! It much wort it! There is a parking space outside

Only stayed one night, but we were impressed with the service and the value. The hotel is very easy to find and there was free parking right across the street. The reception staff was very helpful. The man on duty the night we checked in spoke 4 languages, but unfortunately for us English wasn't one of them. We were able to communiate well enough with my limited Spanish, and he was very patient. Breakfast was included and was very nice.
