“Amazing hotel”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

We loved this hotel from the moment we were greeted by the super friendly staff with wine for us and hot chocolate for our son. David in particular (who is American ) made our stay so pleasant. The room was perfect comfortable bed nice and clean large bathroom and we were able to get a room with a door and smaller room attached for our son. There was parking and as it was close to the walls of the city it was very easy to drive in and out to visit nearby sights. The experience felt very personal and is the best hotel I have ever stayed as far as customer service all in a lovely building- fine to stay and hang out at the hotel -games and a bar with light fare menu. Oh and a superb breakfast !

Stayed December 2013

Wow what a special place Albergaria do Calvario is. It was like being welcomed home. The food, tapas at any time, or breakfasts,was all organic, locally sourced and cooked and really gave you the taste of Alentejo. Feeling poorly one night I asked for honey and lemon and in seconds a lovely pot was rustled up and brought to our room. All the hotel recommended restaurants were excellent, and different. Our trip to the Neolithic monuments was really good, Mario being full of information and passion about his subject and about Portugal. Big roomy sofas, an eclectic library, DVDs, games, good lighting, a bar open all night.......Brilliant. We were in a standard classic room, can't wait to go back and upgrade!

Too bad it was only one night. The staff was extremely friendly. I'd recommend and return. It was not luxury but very much cosy.
They have a internal parking and good tips in a Evora and around.
I've changed my trip fri Obidos to Evora and was a good choice.

We stayed here on Valentine's day which was the first day of our 10 day trip to Portugal. This has to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome, with a glass of wine and a run down on the area including possible places to eat. Having caught an early flight from London, we were hungry so they phoned a restaurant and got us in for a late lunch - perfect! We booked Suite 3 which had a huge bed and separate small sitting room. There was a complementary bottle of water in the fridge. Breakfast is amazing with all organic ingredients. We had a drink in the bar in the evening - the atmosphere is very calm and cosy with a well stocked library of books to choose from. Parking is free in the small underground car park. From start to finish this was a fabulous example of excellent customer service. Evora is a charming place - we will certainly come back again.

Room Tip: Suite 3 has a very wide bed with crisp linen- and a small separate sitting area, There is a TV in e...

Would do anything possible (legally I assume) to make your stay great. These folks have customer service the Ritz yearns for.
Breakfast as good as it gets. High quality fruit, pastries, cereal, meats, cheese PLUS they will make you omelets, eggs any style, pancakes...who knows what else.
Room comfortable, large, nice bathroom, fridge. Bed very comfortable.
Parking included and hotel well located.
Tapas, salads, soup, sandwiches and nice bar if you don't wish to go out for dinner.
What is not to love? Ok, not the least expensive place, but well worth the price whether you are rich or it is a splurge.

This is a really great find....deserves all the brilliant reviews.
We stayed here for two nights and we're immediately made to feel welcome...given a glass of wine while they explained all about the area.
We booked a premium room which was a good size with a balcony...shame about the weather.
The bed was extremely comfortable with crisp clean sheets. Breakfast was an absolute delight with all products being organic and plentiful...cooked breakfast as well as homemade pastries and the usual.
Every single member of staff went out of thir way to make us feel welcome...stay here and you won't be disappointed.

Very good place to stay in Evora. Inside the city wall, with everything in walking distance. The best restaurants in Evora are in 1 minute walk from the hotel. We had a big chaise lounge near the bed big enough for a nap. Breakfast very local, with organic and biological produts, everything very tasty. The staff is very nice and helpfull. Parkin is free. If you came to Evora this is were you need to stay.
