This is a lovely and unusual place, and the perfect base to explore Beja. It has a stunning interior, with vast, high ceilings and a huge entrance hall that make for an unforgettable first impression. The building has been carefully and stylishly restored, and the rooms, although a bit dark, are very comfortable. There's a lovely outdoor pool in the...

This converted convent right in the heart of Beja far exceeded our expectations (our third Pousada-Parador of the trip). Check-in was easy and because we were early, we were given a map to go explore. Beja is a great place with lots of history but wandering around this pousada, we felt the same. How many hotels have their own chapel?...

Superb restaurant, great food & staff. Nice room, bathroom a tad tired. Lovely gardens and pool with bar service. If we stay again, we will ask for garden view bedroom. Hallways and relaxing areas are very interesting. Reception staff very helpful and friendly. Pousada in a good location for sight seeing. Would stay longer next time

We stayed here for two nights and were given a warm welcome by the receptionist who spoke excellent English and showed us to our room. The room was comfortably furnished but I would not rate it as a five star hotel. We ate in the restaurant on our first night but we were disappointed by the standard of the food....

The Pousada de Beja exceeded our expectations. The hotel is fun to explore right in the heart of Beja. Our family of 4, 2 kids 10 & 14 stayed for one night in Late September. We relaxed by the beautiful pool and enjoyed discovering the old town of Beja. The evening meal was fine but probably over-priced for the quality....

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
