“A fantástic hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014

We stayed at Albergaria do Calvario from the 4th to the 6th of January and I must say it was fantástic. We went with our two dogs and they organize everything for us to feel as if we were at home. Everything was superb and specially the staff. We will return!!. I forgot the superb breakfast and the gin and tónic they prepared us everynight!!.

Room Tip: If you go with pets ask for the apartment. It is very comfortable with pets.

Like many other reviewers, we wished we could have stayed longer. Next time I will bypass Lisbon and base myself at Evora. There is so much to see and do but I'm not going to tell you anymore about this place as I don't want it overrun. But to do the owners and staff justice, suffice to stay this place is excellent.

By far one of the best experiences of our three week trip throughout Portugal.I was 'under the weather' when my husband and I arrived. We were escorted by some nuns because we were so thoroughly lost,the owner and staff treated us like old friends had arrived,went above and beyond any customer service I have ever experienced. The food was exceptional,lovely quiet rooms and walking distance to almost all the sites the more than knowledgeable staff recommended without any pressure. I could have stayed much longer than a few days and wanted to cry when we left . My advice .... Plan to stay longer !

Room Tip: Can't imagine any rooms not being delightful

Our stay at the Albergaria do Calvario was the best of all our stays in Portugal. We even stayed an extra night! We fell in love with Evora, the area and the people! From the moment we walked in on a warm August afternoon with fresh squeezed lemonade awaiting us, till the moment we left, we felt attended to! The staff was truly incredible, friendly, helpful and genuinely caring about our stay in Evora. The one common thing amongst the staff is you know they absolutely want to please the guests!! The staff will meet all your needs!! Albergaria do Calvario is situated just inside the city walls of the town. It has beautiful common areas and a wonderful breakfast! They feature organic products locally grown. We stayed in Room # 19, one flight up, which had a king bed and a lovely patio/balcony. We would sit outside at night and have a nice glass of wine and savoir the day and the area. Just the perfect relaxation to every busy day! Evora was the perfect home base to take side trips from... a day trip to Monsaraz was wonderful! We also stopped at Estremoz for lunch. One day we drove to the Megaliths and pre historic area. There was just so much to do in this area as well as thing to do within the walls of Evora.

I will absolutely return to this area and to this hotel. They made us outstanding dinner recommendations that were some of the best meals we had while visiting the country of Portugal. Be sure to buy a cork product from this area! Cork trees everywhere! I bought a few cork cosmetic bags to bring back home and they felt like leather!

The staff at Albergaria do Calvario truly take pride in their jobs. Please don't go anywhere else!!

Room Tip: Ask for the room one flight up with the patio,,,room #19 for that extra area to relax outside!

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.
