Pousada Dos Loios de Evora
We loved this Pousada. Great location in the centre of town. Evora is a walking town so we parked our car at the hotel and walked. A note on the parking. Their parking space is very limited. We were in Cell 122(name of the room) which is typical of the rooms. They were monk's cells so they were small but comfortable. Unfortunately we were too early to enjoy the pool. We enjoyed sangria in the outdoor patio but the one time we used the dining room we found the service lacking. Apparently the lamb was excellent.
Overall good value

Dos Loios might be one of the most beautiful pousadas in the group. The hotel is kept in immaculate condition.
We stayed in one of the suites which was most tastefully decorated. The bed was a bit too hard for my partner but good for me. The bathroom was not the latest design, but this is not what I'm looking for when staying in a historic pousada.
Wireless is free of charge, but doesn't work everywhere in the room due to the thick walls.
We appreciated the good food in the beautiful cloister, both in the morning and for dinner; and the always helpful and friendly staff. We will certainly return to this place.

Room Tip: Treat yourself with a suite

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.

This Pousada is a beautifully restored convent and exudes history and elegance. The building is stunning architecturally, beautifully situated right beside the ruins of the Roman temple of Diana and centrally located in Evora. Everything is walkable from the Pousada. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the place is immaculately clean. The dining area in the convent cloisters is charming and the breakfast excellent. Highly recommended!

Worth a visit because it's in a beautiful old building right next to the cathedral and temple of Diana.

Positives:
- building is beautiful,
- wonderful location
- public rooms tastefully and elegantly decorated
- beautiful setting for restaurant (old cloister)
- very helpful and friendly staff

Less positives:
- noise: the corridors retain their original tiled floors, which is good, but the lack of carpets and curtains here means that every single noise echoes and carries far; the cathedral bell bongs every quarter hour, even through the night ...)
- our room was acceptable, but spartan and cool; decor needed refreshing
- good bathroom
- no (free) wifi in rooms
- food was acceptable: solid, but not outstanding (maybe I'm comparing unfairly with Spanish paradores); quite a limited choice on the menu, and very expensive for Portugal; good wines, though; breakfast not exciting.
