“Wonderful”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

I liked this hotel a lot. Great location just down from the Praca do Giraldo on a quiet alley/street (do not try to drive to the front of the hotel!) Our room on the first floor overlooked the alley, was clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. It's a short walk to what was our favorite restaurant in Portugal - Adega do Alentejano on Rua Gabriel Victor de Monte Pereira.

Stayed here during a week-long conference at the University of Evora in mid-Sept. Double was spotless, nicely furnished, quiet, and comfortable. Looked newly redecorated. Queen-sized bed with lots of pillows. Free wi-fi, but connection was very unreliable for several days (almost useless) until fixed. Large breakfast buffet included, lots of choices, including fresh-squeezed orange juice. Location couldn't be better, unless there had been a view of the Praça do Giraldo. Close to shopping streets, restaurants, and cafes. Good value for the money.

We stayed here for 3 nights in April 2011. The hotel is very well located, just steps from Praça do Giraldo. Our room was clean, plainly furnished, and comfortable but tiny. The breakfast buffet included in the room rate was adequate, and we especially enjoyed the self-service station to make fresh-squeezed orange juice. The front desk staff were helpful, friendly and spoke very good English. Because of its great location and very good price, I'd stay here again

I stayed at this hotel for one week. It was well heated and the bathroom had plenty of hot water (very appreciated in November!). No tea/coffee facility within the room, though you can have some made at the bar (not free). Comfy bed with choice of pillows (there is a pillow menu!). Not a new hotel, but ok. Free wifi. Friendly staff. Breakfast: very good choice at the buffet, including the possibility to make fresh juices yourself; you can help yourself to fruits for snacking during the day; several choices of cereals, bread, cheese, etc. Some English French language channels on the bedroom's TV. You can walk to anywhere in town from this hotel. It is not easy to find by car as there are many one-way streets and, as the streets are quite close to each other, the GPS navigator struggles a bit. There are some parking spaces for hotel customers in the nearby street, but as the hotel gets fuller during the touristic season, they may all get taken by the time you want to park after a day out of town.

We had a very small car (Opel Corsa) but it's nearly impossible not to scratch it trying to make your way to the hotel which is nice but kind of very no frills, the breakfast especially is hardly edible. Best Westerns in US are much more upscale.

This hotel is ideally located in the heart of Evora, a few minutes walk from the main square, Praça de Giraldo. The service was efficient and there were some nice touches such as free WiFi access and the chance to squeeze your own fresh orange juice at breakfast.

However, these factors were overshadowed by the miniscule room we had. I am not exaggerating when I say that the beds took up about 90% of the space so it was impossible for two people to move without bumping into each other.

Strangely enough the single room I booked for another member of our group had a double bed while our double room had two single beds.

There was also no mini fridge so the bottle of water provided courtesy of the management matched the 35 degree Celsius temperature outside and was tepid.

I had expected better standards from a hotel within the Best Western group and was surprised to learn that Best Western is franchising its name. I intend raising this matter with Best Western as the name was the main reason I chose this hotel.

The place was OK for a night but I wouldn´t recommend it for a longer stay in Evora, a city which is a rare treat.
