After a long drive to Viseu from Santander we eventually found the pousada. Our sat-nav (Garmin) taking us around the outskirts and then trying to deliver us to an apartment block 100yds away. Although there are road-signs to the pousada our Garmin route didn't pass any. We were part of a large group of classic car owners and the hotel... More

Fantastic hotel,amazing refurbishment maintaining the history and character throughout while blending modern conveniences tastefully. Fabulous welcome on arrival, we were given a run down on the history of the building while a saxophonist played in the lobby, staff couldn't have been more efficient or friendly. Rooms were spacious and housekeeping was top notch, we stayed here for 3 nights and... More

We stayed here for two nights and loved it! Since it was only converted to a pousada in 2009, it has very modern rooms and conveniences. We were in room 306 and it was lovely.. We had a balcony, large room, nice amenities and a great bed. The pool area was very nice as was the spa. The restaurant was... More

I stayed at Pousada de Viseu, for two nights, at the beginning of May 2015, I don't remember the room number (220? 221?), but it was a suite. The Pousada is set in the extensively restored XIXth century Viseu Hospital, roughly 10 minutes walk to the city centre. You'd never guess this had been a hospital at some point in... More

We had never stayed at this Pousada before and enjoyed it very much, returning for a 2 night stay later in our trip. Our junior suite was very comfortable and the king size bed very welcome after our previous discomfort. The balcony had a wonderful view over the city and the bathroom well equipped with walk in shower as well... More

Part of an international group of hotels all located in buildings repurposed from times past. This one, an old hospital at the edge of city center, easily accessed from highway, quiet and with good view of the small city. Next door to a nice cemetery...

Excellent conversion with rooms arranged around the central atrium. Rooms really comfortable and breakfast good. We did not try the restaurant for dinner as there was so much choice in the city itself. Position within 10 minutes walk of the Old Town was surprisingly quiet. Reception staff not as helpful as they might have been when asked for directions within... More
