“Boutique without the price tag”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Great location, great value. Climb the stairs to Lucy in the Sky room for your own private rooftop balcony and best views of the city. Amazing! Great restaurant tips and sightseeing advice. Like, don't miss the wedding dress made out of cork at this little shop.

We stayed for one night here and it was a real treat. The room was very spacious and individually decorated. They common area is also quirky yet comfortable.

Breakfast is offered for 5€, and includes fresh local bread rolls, spreads, cheese, ham, cereals, fruit and yoghurt along with freshly brewed coffee and a selection of teas.

The staff here are just wonderful. They couldn't do enough for us. They shared their great local knowledge of shops and attractions to help us plan our trip. Upon collecting our bags for departure, they were sure to ask if we would like another coffee or some fruit for the journey.

Wifi is included and there is a network for each floor so the connection is reliable. The Inn is located very centrally, right on the main plaza but there was no problem with noise (note we were traveling in low season). The only thing we heard were church bells on Sunday morning, which was lovely.

The stairs might be problematic for some, the reception is on the second floor and there is no lift. Our only concern was the bathroom which was very poky and out of date. I managed to hit my head on the water service and to step out of the shower you have to negotiate around the toilet. There was also a bit of mould in the shower which lent a musty smell to the room.

Overall I would definitely recommend staying here. The prices are reasonable, the room was gorgeous and we would return just to see the staff again. Perhaps if more people stay they'll upgrade the bathrooms!

This spotless European style hotel is terrific. The doorway entrance is a little bit of a challenge to find and the third floor (by American standards) lobby is a bit of a hike but make the effort as the rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is fantastic. All of these positives along with a thoughtful and service oriented staff make this a perfect option when you visit Evora. If you are on a budget, I can't imagine a better option.

Our 1 night stay in Evora was funny also thanks to this hotel. In a perfect position (on the main place of the city) it is clean and managed by two really nice girls. The room were not the best in my life - little bit small and the bathroom was not awasome - but in general it was a nice stay.

Stayed here in a room on the top floor which for 50 Euros/night was a steal. Well decorated, clean room, good air conditioning and comfortable bed. Diana, Paula and their staff were very warm and welcoming and it felt like a proper b&b where you have time to chat and get to know a bit more about Evora. Breakfast was good and I appreciated the dining recommendations.

I was travelling with friends staying in another hotel, and we went to a down home local restaurant where we had a great rustic meal for about 7 Euros each! Evora is a charming town and I'd have liked to have more time to explore the area.

The only issue is that being in the centre of town, you will experience noise at night, especially if there's a football match involved!

Thank you for looking after me.

We discovered quite a lot design hotels and guest houses in Portugal and this was another beautifully renovated old house with contemporary design. The location is excellent, the room (it was a suite) was really big, with a little bit smaller bathroom, but good enough. The staff was very friendly and helpful, giving excellent advice on bars, restaurants and places to see and visit - everybody was very nice and welcoming. There was wi-fi in the rooms, the breakfast was simple, but good and fresh, and the lady helping with breakfast created a really nice and welcoming atmosphere there.

Room Tip: No lift, high ceilings, so no heavy luggage if you want a room upstairs :)

The service at this hotel is fantastic. They spent lots of time explaining the sights and hidden secrets of the city. We got great recommendations for restaurants etc. the rooms are spacious and nicely designed. Only disadvantage is it's a bit noisy from the street.
