What a magnificent setting to stay in! All the staff were pleasant and helpful. We dined in the covered cloister to the sound of a pianist. Magical! The conversion of the building has been done with such skill and taste. You will not be disappointed

The building, which used to be a hospital, is very tastefully converted and restored. Rooms are large and very comfortable. Breakfast is also extremely nice. Very close to the centre of Viseu, which is an interesting city, from an architectural and artistic point of view. Also the region around is very beautiful. Drawbacks: the inside pool is very small and... More

My partner and I attended a friend's wedding here in November '13 and the hotel was a wonderful location and a great place to stay. The wedding party had hired the whole place and the staff went truly out of their way to make the whole weekend enjoyable for the bride and groom and their guests. The rooms are well... More

Had a great time at Pousada de Viseu. The building was wonderfully rebuilt and the lobby is a welcoming invitation to peace. Comfortable room, good breakfast, very satisfying spa, especially the indoor pool.

A lovely pousada, but rooms are only average. Noise is a problem in this hotel. Sitting in the bar feels a bit weird - like in a concrete coutyard in semi-darkness. The restaurant was good and the waiter was most helpful, but the food was very salty. Breakfast was good, yet basic. We couldn't get any attention at the spa,... More

When we got there, it was a total surprise! If I didn't know it was a pousada, I would think it was a museam! Really beautiful outiside. Actually, it is an old hospital, now transformed in the pousada. The service is good, the rooms are beautiful, and the breakfest... the best ever. Just one thing, the spa is really expensive.

This hotel was formerly a hospital. The hospital was closed and the space was not used for about 10 years.  The building has been recently adapted and renovated. It  became a very comfortable and modern Pestana hotel. Breakfast is good. I can't tell about the restaurant. We stayed in a two-storey suite with a bedroom and ensuite bathroom on the... More

It is for sure the best hotel in Viseu. Stayed two times in the suite and special suite. Very comfortable and clean rooms, price is great as well as the service. Gym could be improved though and breakfast is average.

The pousadas are now privatised, and seem to have reduced prices to very reasonable rates. We stayed for a long weekend in winter. It was rainy nearly continuosly. But one can stay in the huge covered inner court (lounge and bar), side rooms or the well-furnished own hotel room. Climbing up and down the majestic 19th century stairs is a... More

Stayed here during a business trip to Porto. It's charming and is located in a restored hospital. The rooms are very spacious and the hotel is in excellent shape - however, be aware of snoring neighbors and don't take the room next to the lift, as the walls seem to be very narrow hence the noise level at night could...
