This old hospital, located just outside the old city center, is one of the most famous hotels in Viseu. The rooms are wide, cozy and modern. My girlfriend and I stayed in a suite, where we could also enjoy a terrace with beautiful views and a double bathroom. Pousada has an amazing, spaceous and natural lit atrium, where breakfast is...

The building is spectacular - a historic hospital - as is its transformation into a modern hotel. Somehow, the designers have managed to combine the historic features with a completely up-to-date hotel infrastructure in a way that is very seldom managed. Bedrooms have the proportions of a classical building, but are designed in a modern and very practical way, with... More

Luxery hotel and restaurant. The free use of the pool, sauna en jaccuzi is lovely. This was the first Pousada we visited and we want more! The old Hospital is transformed in to a wonderful place. The foto´s on the wall of the restauration are beautiful.

No doubt about it, this is a beautiful property inside but that is the best of this place. We got in around 7p on a cold night and thought it easier to just have dinner here. However, the restaurant did not open until 8, which is not unexpected, but the bar seemed closed too. Worse than that though, the restaurant... More

We all thoroughly enjoyed our two day stay - from the large, comfortable and well appointed rooms, to the accommodating spa staff and the wonderfully kind and helpful front desk, waiting and kitchen staff. The building has been beautifully renovated into an hotel which makes its guests feel really cherished!

The physical presence of this building and it's romantic, imposing interior do not match the spotty service and inedible food. How can a hotel be "5 star" with no fresh brewed coffee or table service at breakfast? On our first night, I sent one of the dishes back because I could not chew it, and the replacement meal was even... More

Fabulous hotel which has been converted from a derelict hospital. Excellent location, very comfortable with an enormous comfy bed. Amazing quadrangle in the centre. Excellent helpful friendly service with good restaurant and reasonably priced.

It was an amazing experience. Building and town was a very pleasant surprise but staff are the great asset. My wife did it! She presented me with two nights in Pousada de Viseu to celebrate my birthday. Both of us had an amazing massage followed by an amazing wine dinner.
