“Great value.”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

Very good place, excellent location, nice staff (all the hotel employees I have met have been extremely kind). Wi-fi connection works pretty well. Rooms are very charming. Breakfast is also good, but biscuits are really excellent.
I have noticed only one (minor) problem: if you need an hair dryer, you need to ask the receptionnist.
Highly recommended.

.This is a well run hotel situated on a quiet street in the heart of a medieval town. It is good value for money and the staff are helpful and welcoming. If you are driving, reserve one of the five hotel parking spaces. Parking otherwise is difficult.

The one criticism I would make is the noise from feral drinkers who disturb the streets below the bedrooms all through the night and I mean from 23.00 hours until 07.00 hours .... and we had two nights of this!

The hotel management have complained to the police who are seem powerless to prevent the shouts, screams and other loud noises made by mainly young men and girls. Take ear plugs, there are no rooms not affected in some way or another.

Room Tip: Take your chances!!

Residencial Riviera is a very smart choice for your stay in Evora, a beautiful university town with lots of nightly action.

The rooms at Riviera were nice, the bathroom clean, the breakfast tasty, and the location excellent.

The service and reception was perhaps not as warm as I was accustomed to in Portugal, but overall we were satisfied.

Residencial Riviera is a nice place to stay in Evora.

The location is excellent, just in the heart of the town. There are some reserved parking places 200m up the hill.

The hotel is clean, though not modern. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious. Breakfast is good.

Overall, just what you need with no specific highs or lows.

If we come to Evora again, we'll be back.

We had taken the bus to Evora and the local public transportation dropped us 50 metres from the front door of the hotel. The rooms were tasteful and very comfortable; we especially enjoyed the beautiful sitting room on our floor. We walked easily to all major attractions in Evora, which is a charming small city.

Historic hotel in the centre of historic Evora with 100 metre walk to Giraldo's Square with its outdoor restaurants, tourist office and shops. Hotel has character, particularly the unusual ceilings and spacious rooms. Be sure to request a quiet room as the quiet day time streets turn into loud party streets at night right through until 4.00 am in the morning. Friendly and helpful management. No lift and number of stairs up to the rooms. Easy walking access to all the sites. Evora a delightful town with its cobbled streets and restaurants hidden in the side streets.

Room Tip: Ensure you request a quiet room if you don't like loud street noise until dawn.

When I was in Evora, I stayed at Residencial Riviera. The hotel is very good, location is perfect, the beds are comfortable, the rooms are nicely decorated, the staff is friendly. The city is very hot and the air conditioning in the hotel worked very well. I thought the breakfast was poor and the dining room is small, causing queues at the busiest times.
