As repeater customers we (2 of us) were delighted to visit this Pousada again, it belongs to our top 5 pousada favourites. It is a gem really for those who want to enjoy Alentejo atmosphere, wine and gastronomy in a historical setting. The hotel staff was very kind and helpful, so our stay was a most pleasant one.

We booked for a special occasion, 2nd April. The Pousada (a former convent - it's huge!) is central, walking distance to everywhere, and parking at the hotel was good, safe and convenient. The two staff at reception when we arrived at mid-day were helpful and friendly, though the place felt empty; all the ceilings in the public areas are very...

Beja town cycles were not available in April 2017 but we bought a walking guide at the Castle tourist office. The guide container detailed maps of a few walks and we completed one at nearby Quintos. Only lost our way once.

We stayed at the pousada for 3 nights and used it as base to explore the Alentejo region. It was ideal for our purposes. Lovely building, light and spacious, with a very relaxed feel. The room was very comfortable and the staff were excellent - very friendly and helpful. Couldn't have been better.

Stunning building, this old convent has been turned into a gorgeous and comfortable hotel, a few minutes away from the city center. Unfortunately the weather was not good enough to enjoy the nice swimming-pool in the garden. The breakfast room was gorgeous and the breakfast very good apart from one detail: the coffee was really terrible.

This place is pure class. The convent has been tastefully refurbished into a really good hotel. The rooms have all you need and the communal areas are nothing short of impressive. The food was excellent and the staff helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay here and would love to return someday.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Beja, Sao Francisco, is a hotel right in the centre of the city, in an old XIII century convent, the result of which is a majestic, impressionable architectural work, which represents religious and gothic architecture. The first registers of the convent date back to 10th November 1268, a date which marks the emergence of the S. Francisco Community in Beja under the initiative of the Captain General Lopo Esteves and the Councillors Diogo Fernandes and Vasco Martins. Opened in 1994, this historic luxury hotel in Beja has kept the original features of the old building, containing many spacious areas, high ceilings with predominating white walls and decor of local crafts and antiques, giving it a warm welcoming to visitors of the Pousada. In the old central nave, contemporary art expositions give life to the walls. The hallways, ample and stripped, connect the old monks' chambers which have been remodelled and transformed into welcoming bedrooms with an inviting view of the pool and garden. Nserted in the heart of Alentejo, the Pousada can help their guests plan a number of diverse activities including bicycle rides, horse treks and hikes. The Beja Castle is only 700 metres from the Pousada de Beja and the Queen Dona Leonor Museum is found a mere 300 metres away. The Pousada de Beja is a true oasis in the Alentejo plain. Come and relive these old memories, with almost 800 years of history, in a real haven in the Alentejo plain. ... more   less
