We recently spent 2 nights at the Pousada dos Loios. From the time we walked in the hotel to the time we checked out, the front desk and the entire staff were first class. Always there if there is any question or assistance needed.
The suite is spacious and very comfortable. The amenities, linen, furniture are quite adequate.
The location cannot be better. Right next to the temple of Diana. One can walk to town and sightseeing sites very easily.
Breakfast food was delicious , hot and plentiful. The breakfast room is very pleasant ,near the former monastery courtyard.
Will certainly stay there if we return to Evora.

Room Tip: For patrons with reduced mobility the suite by the reception is very convenient. Absolutely no noise due to the thick walls , near the lobby and the entrance.

Dear Guest,

They are words such as yours that actually encourage us and motivate us to continue and improve our work. Our main goal every day is to give each client a Memorable stay.

I am very happy to see that you have enjoyed our Restaurant and the overall service.

As you say, the location is perfect since the Pousada is located in the center of Évora right next to the Roman Temple of Diana.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you once again in the Pousada of Évora.

Kind regards,
André Freire

We stayed in the Pousada Dos Loios on our way home from the Algarve. It is a beautiful old building and we were welcomed warmly by the receptionist and a young man helped me to park my car, a service much appreciated as the parking is tight close to the Pousada.
The same young man insisted on carrying all our luggage to our room also, not an easy task, especially as there is no lift. The building was once a monastery and was full of antique furniture and fittings. Our room was once a Nuns cell but was fitted out luxurious and was Beautifully cool in the heat of the day.
In the late afternoon we enjoyed a excellent bottle of local Alentejo Rose wine out on the vine covered terrace.
In the evening we had our dinner in the Pousadas restaurant. It is wise to book a table in advance as it was very busy. We booked the table when we check in. We had the chef's suggestion which was the Regional Lamb with mint and potatoes which was excellent, we shared a board of local cheese for dessert and we had another bottle of the superb rose we had drunk early in the day. The restaurant is set up in what was once the cloister and was full of dinners, both visitors and locals. the centre of the cloister is full of orange trees, a delightful setting.
We really enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend a stay here for a bit of luxury and it is not overly expensive.

Dear Guest,

On my behalf and from the entire staff of Pousada de Évora we would like to thank you for your comments. They were much appreciated.

We try to do our best to make each guest feel welcome in our Pousada since it is for us a pleasure and an honor to receive guests.

The vine tree that we have in our Bar terrace is becoming already very pretty and full of green that allows to enjoyed a very good drink.

Our Restaurant is in the cloisters were the monks meditated and you can almost feel that ancient environment. As you said, it is better to make a reservation for the Restaurant. The Lamb is one of the most typical dishes from Évora.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you once again at the Pousada de Évora.

Kind regards,
André Freire

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.
