The Pousadas of Portugal are an admirable concept - the majority of properties have been converted from historical buildings to preserve what otherwise could have fallen into decay and ruin. This one is in the pretty town of Viseu and is within walking distance of the historical centre. While the building dates from the end of the 18th Century, the... More

Stumbled into this newish hotel on the internet and very happy to have found it. Although expensive by local standards it is outstanding in presentation and offerings.

We stayed here for four nights from 2 July. Conversion of this early 19th Century hospital was done very intelligently and provides an enjoyable ambience, and was only opened about 5 years ago. There are four floors in addition to the ground level, with the top floor constructed on the former roof, taking advantage of the balustrade to provide terraces... More

We recently took a coach tour of Portugal. Arranged by a well-known UK holiday company, it involved staying in 4 different pousadas. This one was the second. Although we did not eat here - apart from breakfast - this was my favourite of the four. And the reason.....I just loved the room! Our room was very spacious with rather plain... More

After 30 years of Portuguese travel, we finally arrived in Viseu. This is a completely undervalued Portuguese city, and well worth a detour from the normal tourist trail. The Pousada is a converted hospital, tastefully converted into a very comfortable hotel. Faith, Hope and Charity top the preserved façade, and the interior has been tastefully renovated with a covered central... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Viseu is built on the old Sao Teotonio Hospital, one of the oldest hospitals of the Viseu city, having opened in 1842. The entrance to this eighteenth century majestic and impotent building is crowned by 3 statues - Faith, Hope and Charity - which look attentively over the fabulous landscape above the old city - the name given to the oldest part of the town which is located the Cathedral and the Cava Viriato. This hotel in Viseu was a project by the Portuguese architect Goncalo Byrne and opened to the public in 2009, offering a hotel Spa at the heart of the city. The Spa is situated in the old hospital chapel and offers sauna, Jacuzzi, Turkish baths, tropical showers, gym and an indoor pool heated for better relaxation. Its central location and private parking are an invitation to visit places of interest nearby, such as the green Fontelo Forest Park, Cava de Viriato, the Roman ruins and the Grao Vasco Museum of Renaissance paintings, the treasure of the Cathedral and the Home Museum of Almeida Moreira, which tells the story of a historic city. ... more   less
