This hotel has the potential to be great but unfortunately disappointed at every turn. Upon checking in we were given a twin rather than double room as requested. They explained due to a large group booking they couldn't provide a double room but would for the second night of our stay. The following morning we asked to change to a...

Just a beautiful, historic place, like many pousadas. Great breakfast, very good service, always a pleasure. Pousadas are consistently good. This one has a beautiful view of the hill, a very pleasant pool, and an amazing little church covered with azulejos.

Like a previous reviewer, was part of a Titan tour group. The Pousada, its standard of renovation and setting were all very good. No complaints about the room or other facilities.

If your itinerary includes exploring the villages of Portugal’s Alentejo region, the Pousada Convento de Arraiolos makes a convenient headquarters. Housed in a refurbished 16th Century convent, the pousada's pastoral setting offers a welcome change from the enjoyable but energetic ambiance of Lisbon. From the private terrace of a “superior room” in the 1996 addition at the back of the...

This former monastery combines the traditional with contemporary updates. The beds were gorgeous in a small but convenient room. The door to the bathroom opened the wrong way causing some discomfort when using it while others try to enter. The overall architecture is rather white and dull despite the laudatio we received from the travel agent on the architectural design....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Arraiolos, Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, is situated in a sixteenth century convent presenting itself as an example in the art of recovery of historical buildings which combine traditional features with the concepts of modern architecture. The union between tradition and modernisms is celebrated in this Pousada with innovated luxury. During the middle ages the convent served the local evangelistic population. With the restoration into Pousada, the austerity gave way to joy, the simplicity of comfort and to penance to life's pleasures. Staying at this Pousada is a fantastic pretext for getting to know the town of Arraiolos, whose cultural heritage is world renowned, through its carpets which are a true work of art of tapestry. Guests of the Arraiolos hotel park for free on location. The centre of Arraiolos is 1.2 Km from Pousada de Arraiolos, Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, and 25 km from Evora. ... more   less
