This "small" hotel in unique in that it is in a re-purposed olive press building (from the 1570's). Each room is therefor unique. We were fortunate to have gotten a room that was more like an apartment on a courtyard separate from the main building. Even though our room faced a local traffic street, it was very quiet. It is...

This was my fifth stay at the hotel and each time the service, food and ambience are spectacular. I always try to plan my vacation so that it includes a stop at this wonderful hotel. It is truly a wonderful place to relax and be looked after and enjoy amazing food. We will be back!!

Stayed here for just one night (unfortunately only one) during a recent visit to Portugal. Wonderful staff, so helpful and friendly, and very comfy room. Breakfast was delish. The staff was so kind to orient us well for our visit to Evora and we made the most of our short time. Would definitely return!

There really isn't much to add to the wonderful reviews. Tremendous staff, service, helpfulness, advice, breakfast, facilities, rooms and the city itself. Why would you stay anywhere else? Springtime is especially delightful in the Alentejo.

Terrific staff who can't do enough to help - the hotel is spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable - I would say "home from home" - but I think it's nicer than that!! The rooms are relaxing and quiet and the bed is super comfortable. Delicious breakfast with top quality ingredients - I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Evora...

Honestly, it was a very easy choice to stay at the Albergaria do Calvario because of all of the excellent (and extremely well deserved) reviews. I don't know if you will ever find friendlier or more helpful staff than at this hotel (Hugo was absolutely fantastic); not only will they make you feel so welcomed, they will also offer help...

We couldn't have wished for more: an excellent organic breakfast, great service and a spacious room. They make you feel at home! The restaurant recommendations in Evora are very helpful. The location is perfect.

Everything about this hotel, top to bottom, was fantastic: -The hotel is well located, with nice grounds and a beautiful setting (though everything inside the Evora wall is pretty well-located and beautiful); this hotel also has handy on-site parking. -Our room was very attractive and impeccably maintained, with a large comfortable bed. -The staff was incredibly friendly, generous, and intelligent...

From the moment we arrived we were very pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome by a staff that went out of its way to ensure our comfort. At check-in they helped us book a private tour to a winery for the next day. It was clear they put the customer first. The next morning at breakfast we found out why....

We made a bus trip from Lisbon to Evora and intended to rent a car, but we became ill and decided to stay in town. Hotel was bright, cheerful and quiet; staff was very helpful and the breakfast was a buffet of all local organic foods as well as the option of individually prepared foods and drinks for free.
