The room was large with a very high vaulted ceiling with a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside. The hotel itself was old and charming with lots of interesting architectural detail. The breakfast at 10 Euro per person was excellent. The only minor quibble was that we happened to be there during the month that the university students party late into the night and, because we slept with the window open it made for a less than peaceful sleep. Probably all the hotels in the heart of the city have this same issue so I do not fault this hotel in particular even though it is very close to the university.
As one if the first guests after the reopening, we had a wonderfull stay at The Nobel House for one night. The very friendly and competent staff did everything to make us feel comfortable, completing all pandemic rules, helping with restaurant reservation. The atmosphere in the historic building is beautiful, the rooms are modern with great views and the location is perfect.
We stayed two nights at this little gem of a hotel. Our bedroom overlooked the country side. The breakfast was delicious, the staff was incredibly warm and helpful, the room was luxurious and quiet. We were right inside the walls of the old city of Evora, walking distance to absolutely EVERYTHING. For parking, we found a good spot outside of the walls and left the car there for two days. Driving inside the walls of the city is difficult while walking is quite enjoyable.
Noble House is a good choice in Evora given the excellent location. The staff are great, it's very clean and the breakfasts are good. My only gripes are that car parking is advertised but limited and the rooms are a bit small.
Let me start by saying that I never write bad reviews but when booking I use these reviews as a benchmark and after the experience we have just had, I really think other travellers need to know just how bad this hotel really is. We have just got back from Evora, we had a lovely trip, went to the amazing Dona Maria vineyard and were looking forward to relaxing with our 4 other friends who were also staying in the hotel….this was not to be. We did our COVID tests in the reception as advised and were ushered off to our rooms. We were in the Garden Suite which is a strange name as it has no garden, just a dirty slab of concrete with some old rusty sun loungers and some weeds, no one would want to sit out there. It was situated on the bottom level of the hotel, right next to the carpaek which meant it had no view, in fact, the only window the room had was above the bed, very high up. The room had beautiful vaulted brick ceilings, but the damp and also the fact that no maintenance has been done for quite some time meant that bits of the brick were flaking off and dropping on the bed. The room was big, with a lovely big bathroom but the shower head wasn’t attached to the wall meaning you had to hold it whilst showering….I didn’t expect this in a supposedly 4 star Conde Naste hotel. Our friends stayed in the Cathedral Suite which was much nicer and as the hotel has no bar facilities we decided to sit on their terrace and have some wine.. the receptionist/night manager could not have been less helpful. We asked for a wine opener and we’re told they didn’t have one (after I complained, he managed to find one). We asked for some ice, he was well aware there were 6 of us and gave us a tiny bucket and when I asked did more, he told me they didn’t have any. I asked for restaurant recommendations nearby and was told, it’s Tuesday, most restaurants are closed!!! Breakfast was not great, cold scrambled eggs and bacon so tough even our small dog didn’t want it. The fresh fruit and ham and cheese were good if a Continental breakfast is your thing. I am not happy about leaving this review but I think people need to know what they are getting as at €155 a night, it isn’t cheap.…
