4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Grao Vasco Hotel in Viseu is an older style hotel with atmosphere. There are some antiques on display on the stairwell landings. The Wi-Fi is in the lobby only, which is the only shortfall. The breakfast is good, but with limited fruit. The rooms were clean and serviceable.

Good clean conveniently located hotel. Reasonably priced and quiet. Parking is on site and the area has many restaurants. The staff are a little off hand t the rooms a excellent and if the double windows are closed, very quiet. Very good breakfast is included.

The hotel is conveniently located in Viseu downtown. There is a parking lot and nice breakfast. Staff is very friendly as well. Although we stayed only one night we really liked it. It is certainly worth it

There is nothing inherently wrong with this hotel. It’s well located to visit the old city centre, it is clean and tidy, the rooms are fine, they even have a swimming pool, and their prices are more than reasonable, it’s just a little tired. Well actually, it’s so tired it’s almost fast asleep. Music was playing during breakfast, provided by... More

I stayed at this hotel as a part of a grand tour of Portugal. Our guide warned us before getting to this hotel that we would have to "adjust our expectations" at this hotel, and he was certainly right on that score. The place is pretty tired and run down. The decor is dated. The beds sported old blankets. There... More

Good location and facilities are fine: basic, clean, pleasant view from room overlooking a garden, car parking available and staff friendly if approached. It seems somewhat overpriced for what you get. No wifi in rooms for a venue claiming to have 4stars is more than annoying. As there was a large tour group staying, breakfast was shambolic with insuffient space... More

This hotel met all of the basic requirements but was not anything special. The front desk staff was courteous when asked questions but nothing beyond that. When I checked in, my room smelled of sewer, really bad. When I complained, they immediately came and sprayed a deodorizer in the room. I had a friend whose room had an odor as... More

This hotel is well located in the center of town, just a short walk from the historic town center and various amenities such as shops and restaurants. It has an old world feel about it and a sort of courtly charm. It looks like an old hotel, with only a few floors and a garden with trees. Service wasn't very... More

We stayed one night on Trafalgar tour of Portugal. Good breakfast plenty of choice with decent coffee. HVAC worked well - cooled and not too noisy. Free WiFi only in lobby. Comfortable rooms - some adventure getting shower started but that seems to be normal in Portugal - lots of hot water.

An old one but still fairly good. The furniture is a bit dated but it is still as good hotel in a very well located area. My wife and I were travelling independently and our car was able to be parked free in car park. Be aware that this hotel caters for tour buses, We ate out at restaurants recommended... More
