Great location. Delightful helpful staff. My wife rated the breakfast with home made cakes, pastries, and local produce, the best she has ever had. Cannot recommend more highly. The host charming, helpful and informative.

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 children, ages 5 and 7. We were immediately helped with our car and the service just got better from there. The staff could not have been more gracious and helpful. The decor is lovely - gorgeous, really - but also very comfortable, very home-y. The location is perfect for exploring Evora and the included breakfast is absolutely fantastic. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was big and they were totally welcoming to the children. My only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer!

The perfect place to enjoy life. Every aspect is geared to the comfort and enjoyment of the guests. The staff seems to take pleasure in pleasing their guests. The rooms are large, we'll maintained and very inviting.
We enjoyed the common areas, where strangers gathered and friendships were made.
The breakfast, wow, was outstanding.

This charming hotel was in a perfect location within the walls of Evora, walking distance to all the sights, but also easy to drive to using our portable navigation, and with underground parking. The staff at the hotel really made the experience incredibly personal, with written recommendations for delicious local restaurants and the sights of the city. They recommended sights that weren't emphaized in our guide book that turned out to be some of the best stops of the trip. At breakfast, Peter the owner sat down with us to give some great restaurant and driving tips for our next stop in Seville. The room was spacious and artistically yet simply decorated. There was also great indoor and outdoor common areas for guests to enjoy. We would definitely return to the Albergaria!

Without exaggeration, it is true that the staff at the hotel are among the most genuine and helpful we have experienced in our travels.
We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and also appreciated the small touches like the welcoming glass of wine, restaurant suggestions and delicious, locally-sourced breakfast. The hotel booklet offering suggestions for activities, itineraries made the visit to Evora particularly enjoyable.
It is apparent from the moment you walk into the hotel that there is an emphasis on providing guests with exceptional customer service and we were certainly not disappointed.

Room Tip: Rooms farther from the neighbouring farm may be quieter.

Hotels are all about location and service.
We arrived outside and the staff offered to drive our car into the underground parking and take our luggage.
The front desk and breakfast-room staff are smiling, educated, intelligent and pleasant.
Gave touring suggestions. In addition the hotel supplies a maps and a local touring booklet.
Breakfast is superb - wide choice, beautifully presented.
Do not forget that Evora is well worth a visit, especially if you stay at the Albergaria do Calvario.

in addition to all the compliments written in the latest reviews below, with which i totally agree, i would like to add, actually, WE (my friend and I) would like to add, that from the minute we entered the premises of the hotel with our car we felt at home. a smiling man walked towards our car asking us is to get slowly out of the car, relax and whenever we will be ready to hear information he will be with us.
in the meantime he will park our car, bring our luggage to our room while we rest and relax from our drive with a glass of wine, or juice, or both, whatever we want.

until the minute we write this review, we feel that we couldn't have chosen a better "home" to stay while away from home.

Room Tip: haven't seen all the rooms, but judging by the warmth and service i believe all rooms are wonder...
