“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

My husband and I recently stayed at Albergaria do Calvario on our honeymoon. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the hotel beautifully decorated, and the food is absolutely delicious. Evora is an easy trip to make from Lisbon, and is definitely worth it. We had some of the best meals of our trip in this town, and are definitely planning to return on our next trip to Portugal!

We arrived nearing the end of a 2-week trip round the southern half of Portugal. The weather had been mostly awful (Atlantic storms late 2013) and continued to be awful for the day and night we were in Evora. We'd been to the town before so knew what to expect from the streets and town centre.

Luckily the hotel is just within the city walls (the streets in Evora are TIGHT even by Portuguese standards) and has its own parking. The friendly staff will park the car for you (the garage is TIGHT).

They make you so welcome you can forget the hell of a journey you've just had. They made us some tasty tapas food and they have a decent little bar. There are lounge areas well stocked with games and books of all kinds.

We had a lovely upgrade room. All in all it's a pity we were only here for a night.

We've also stayed in the pousada in Evora and I would definitely place Albergaria do Calvario above that.

We came here on our honeymoon on the recommendation of mother in law, the location is fantastic, the breakfast is to die for, all the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Lovely relaxing communal areas, with a lovely atmosphere.

We had two rooms during our recent visit--a suite and a standard room. Both were well arranged and comfortable. The suite included a separate sitting room which was comfortable and attractive. The hotel is located close to the city walls, which we found made it easier to find. It has its own garage, which is a terrific plus.
The public rooms, including the bar, breakfast room and library are particularly lovely. There are many books on the coffee table available for perusal and borrowing. We thought this would make a terrific base for travel in this interesting district, which includes many prehistoric remains as well as the sights of Evora.
Service is superb and extremely attentive. Highly recommended.

This B&B is one of the best we have ever stayed in across many years of international travel! Be sure to book directly through their website and note the posted advantages. Owners and staff are highly engaged making sure that every guest is greeted and all needs are met. The place is simply lovely in decor and so cozy in its large central lounging areas. We loved walking to the sites and coming back mid-afternoon to order a glass of wine or a hot drink and fresh bakery goods. The owners developed a wonderful guide to all kinds of activities in Evora and surrounding countryside. The food is exceptional, whether it's breakfast or evening light fare.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet and lovely. Hotel is centrally located but on a side street so there is no noise...

This hotel had one of the most helpful and friendly staffs we have ever encountered. They spent all the time we needed to help get to where we wanted to go.

The room was very adequate with a large choice of breakfast foods.

The walk to the main part of Evora is about five minutes or so.

The restaurants recommended were excellent.

The hotel is about 100 ft off the main street near one of the city wall gates.

Room Tip: I don't think any room would have noise as the hotel is back from the main street.

This will be my fourth time staying here for one night on our journey driving from the Algarve back to the UK - we love it and look forward to our stop here. It is modest but beautifully styled with little designer touches. It has a great courtyard for Al fresco dining and the breakfasts are fantastic with lots of locally sourced products and healthy organic touches. All this is good but the thing that makes this hotel so special is its wonderful staff. So friendly and helpful and now that I have stayed a few tomes I am greeted like a friend returning. This was a really great find and I would highly recommend it.
