Comfortable beds and decent shower and bathroom. AC worked well too. Great daily prices too and super location close to everything. Parking is across the street so very convenient. We really liked it and were glad we did not stay in a more expensive hotel.

We stayed in this lovely guest house overnight on our visit to Elvas with our four legged family member. He was very welcomed here and was made to feel like home. The guest house's host was friendly and helpful. It is a smalls guest house with nice cozy rooms. There is public parking across the street from the guesthouse. I absolutely recommend to stay here!

The accommodation is fine and the location very good with free parking just across the road. We have found the mattresses hard everywhere we have been in Portugal so far but here was ok. The staff member who provided us with the map was very enthusiastic, bordering on theatrical and went through the map highlighting a route for us to take. Really liked Elvas overall and could have filled two days here, though we only spent one, with the two big outlying forts. We only had chance to drive past.

One of the cheapest you can find for the quality. The room is small but enough for a couple to be for some days. Its in an excellent location inside Elvas walls and the staff is the most friendly. They gave us a map and clear directions for restaurants and sightseeing.

The hotel location is good, from bus terminal, walk 10 minutes, enter gates of Olivenca, turn left, you can find a yellow building, that is the hotel. This is a home operated hotel, only several rooms, the room is not large, but clean & comfortable. The is a small balcony, one can review the scenery. The onwer is a nice lady, who provided a town map, & told us how to find the sites. Elvas is a small town, one can walk all town on foot. There are two castles out the town. A small supermarket is in short distance, if you need more, walk 10 minutes can reach a large one near the bus terminal. We stayed one night, & feel it is very comfortable.
