Everything was EXCELLENT Could not ask for more, from the moment of our arrival to our departure. Albergaria Do Calvário is a 4-star hotel housed in a 16th century olive oil mill. With an ideal location inside the walls of the historic city of Évora,Just stroll out of the hotel and enjoy all the City has to offer.

What makes this hotel so exceptional are the staff. They were all cheerful, helpful, welcoming and apparently genuinely concerned that their guests have a good time. Perhaps they should open a hotel training school as a side-line?! We stayed an extra night, so got to try out two rooms. Both very well-appointed with extremely comfortable beds. Breakfast is second on...

The exterior and rooms are beautiful and comfortable. Parking is available and free and they will even park your car in the garage. All the staff is fluent in English and extraordinarily friendly and helpful. The only negative I could possibly come up with is that you won't get to practice your Portuguese or your parking skills here.

Large room and bathroom. Clean. Outstanding breakfast selection. Baked goods are tantalizing. Hotel seems to be staffed by university students well schooled in customer service. Staff is courteous, helpful and well informed.
