Travellers' Choice
The SL Hotel Santa Luzia was opened this year, and is situated in the building of the former Pousada de Elvas, which dates back to 1942." After some redecoration and restoration work, it is now a charming hotel aiming to combine the typical Alentejo architecture and the traditional Portuguese spirit of hospitality and it's ready to face the challenges that come with being located in Elvas, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2012. Featuring an elegant, yet typical, decor, the 25 hotel rooms have cable TV, minibar, telephone with exterior access, en suite bathroom and free Wi-Fi access, offering pool, garden and city views. Guests can enjoy the best of Alentejo cuisine in the restaurant where contemporary versions of classic dishes such as Bacalhau Dourado (Gold Codfish) or Borrego Assado no Forno (Roast Lamb) are served.The Bar serves cocktails and appetizers, and like the restaurant, have terraces with relaxing views to the swimming pool.The Hotel has two game rooms, tennis court and free parking (without surveillance).The Spanish city of Badajoz is 12 km far and the bus station is only 7 minutes walking distance from the Hotel.

This hotel was in the past a pusada and they have renovated it but they kept the authentic style. The hotel is near by the historic center and has a parking space in front of it. The hotel is really suitable for people who cannot walk stairs easily. All rooms are on the first floor and there is no elevator. Also you need to carry your own luggage to the first floor. Rooms are nice, but when it is hot outside (specially during the summer), the AC is not able to cool the room to a comfortable level. The swimming pool is big enough and nice to rest after a long walk in the city. The breakfast is enough to get started but not really special. Staff is very friendly and provide good instruction related to the covid rules.

Response from João Simões, Diretor-Geral at SL Hotel Santa Luzia, Elvas
Responded 13 Aug 2020
Dear Mr Frank, First of all, we would like to thank you for choosing the SL Hotel Santa Luzia for your stay in Elvas and for spending some time to review your experience with us. We are very pleased to hear that overall you appreciated the hotel and your time with us. Regarding the staircase, we would like to clarify that being a historical-listed building regrettably we are not able to alter the original structure and therefore to install a lift to access the first floor. Nevertheless, we always offer to carry your luggage to your room. We have checked directly with our reception team and it has been confirmed that such help was indeed offered to you but declined. The same offer remains valid at check-out time, when we encourage our guests to contact our reception team to collect the luggage from their rooms. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind Regards,

We stayed here one night on a cycling tour of Alentejo. The staff are very friendly at check in looking after our bikes no problem. The pool area is large and nice, but quite chilly water when we visited (late September). It’s an easy walk into the historic old town. The restaurant is very nice for dinner and the breakfast is good too. Well recommended.

Cosy and nostalgic atmosphere. Not entirely brand new but provides all you require. Loved the white table cloths in the restaurant, and the pink tiles in the bathroom. The pool is also pretty large with a relaxed atmosphere. Overall service was very good. At bit odd was the fact that the shower head was replaced by a newer one, which didn’t fit in holder attached to the wall, so you had to keep it in your hand while showering. The restaurant is cozy and service is good but a bit expensive for the quality of the food (we ordered two different salads which mostly consisted of lettuce). Very easy access into the old city.

Very nice hotel, clean and bright. The bedroom was a good size and clean, good size bathroom with robes and slippers. We did have lunch one day which was good, breakfast more continental but only opens at 8am. Staff friendly. Enjoyed our 2 night stay, good location lots of parking on site.
