The hotel is ideally situated for seeing the Major attractions of Evora. The cathedral is next door. The front door looks out on the ruins of the Roman temple of Diana. And the shopping and churches are just a short walk away.
Located just a few blocks off the ring road that circles the Evora's city walls, the hotel is easy to find, with no narrow streets to navigate. Parking, though, was minimal.
The public areas are elegant and nicely decorated. The rooms, however, are small (after all, it was a monastery) and the white-painted built-in closets and desk are a throwback to the 1950s. The ensuite bathroom had a certain charm, but bathing with a hand-held shower in a wobbly claw-foot tub and no safety bar did present a challenge, as well as a wet floor. But the rooms were clean and there was a small candy bar on the bed each evening.
The staff were very pleasant and accommodating and even had a breakfast made up for us at 5:30 AM on the day we had a plane to catch.More
