When I was in Evora, I stayed at Residencial Riviera. The hotel is very good, location is perfect, the beds are comfortable, the rooms are nicely decorated, the staff is friendly. The city is very hot and the air conditioning in the hotel worked very well. I thought the breakfast was poor and the dining room is small, causing queues...

We stayed in Evora, just for one night at the end of May and the Hotel Riviera was a great base. The room was of good quality and excellent value for money at €63. Breakfast was straightforward, but fresh and everything you needed. There is no lift, but the reception team carried our luggage upstairs without hesitation. They were courteous...

Our first night in Evora happened to coincide with some really rowdy student activities on the street right under our (1st floor) window. It was a bad night. The management moved us to a rear room (2nd floor) with a tiny balcony overlooking a teeny courtyard and some of the city sights. Slept great then, and the breakfast was *great*....

The booking agency (GoLisbon, not recommended) messed up the reservation, so we were told we had arrived on the wrong day. Despite the hotel being practically empty both the incorrectly booked night and the night we arrived, the management expected us to pay twice. Having been visiting Portugal regularly for more than 50 years, I have never encountered such mean...

I've been sleeping in this hotel several times and so far, I never got any reason to complain. Staff is very nice, location is excellent, rooms are spacious enough and very comfortable. I'm Portuguese but when I stay here, I feel that I'm staying in a true traditional house from Alentejo: the regional "Arraiolos" rugs on the floor, clay bricks...

Evora is well worth a visit, and this place was great. The hotel is almost dead center to the interesting part of town, yet quiet and old fashioned. The staff were so incredibly nice even when I had to cancel one night last minute, I'd recommend staying there just because of that, but the room was clean, had a very...

Located close to the cathedral and easy to find. Nice, large rooms that are tastefully decorated. The bathrooms are clean and well supplied. There are no elevators in the hotel and we had to lug our stuff 2 floors up on the stairs. The breakfast lacked variety. There is no parking with the hotel, but there are convenient public parks...

My Husband and I stayed in this hotel for one night in Evora on May 29, it was a Saturday. We drove into town in our rental car from the Algarve and had detailed directions, but as we found in every city, the streets are poorly marked BUT there are signs directing you to the RESIDENCIAL RIVIERA all over, so...

Good location and generally, a good hotel. Drawbacks include inability to park close to hotel which may be an issue if you have a lot of luggage. The hotel has wi-fi but the signal strength is very weak. I think my main issue was the cost which was a little high for what you get.

Nice city for 1 or two days stopover, The hotel is very convenient for anybody touring by means of buses.
