The Jardim is a lovely old building, facing the riverfront park right at the end of the nain street, a ten minute walk from the station. Quite atmospheric, antique furniture etc, a taste of old Portugal. Numerous restaurants close by, and Viana is an interesting and historic town. Only one small issue - the breakfast was disappointing - mas ha... More

This is a great little hotel with a nice bit of character. We had a back room on the third floor ( yes, there's an elevator ). The room had a view up to the Cathedral on the hilltop over the old town. The staff were very nice and helpful too. VdC is a charming old town. It was raining... More

Great location and they have a parking arrangement with the underground parking. Excellent English spoken and all three people we met made an effort to help us deciding what to do, where to eat etc. We were there only two nights. Beds a bit hard... We slept at the back, first floor. Rooms full of caracter, doors with shutters, wooden... More

It is a little 2 star hotel, in an old building. It is in a perfect location for the city center. Viana is a typical northern town with a nice city center and riverside. Personnel was fantastic, very friendly and keen to help. We had a race early in the morning so they did serve breakfast at 5 am. Don't... More

I just loved this old place whith its quirky combination of solid stone window surrounds, heavy dark wooden shutters and 1970s timewarp orange bathroom suite. Almost the whole rear wall of our bedroom at the back of the hotels 3rd floor opened out throughout large shabby chic Windows onto a narrow balcony with stunning views over Viana towards the Basilica....

You've just got to like this hotel. The location is fabulous with views of the river Lima (front of hotel) and views of the basilica (back of hotel). As other reviewers have said, Viana is a beautiful little town full of attractive buildings, restaurants and cafés - all in close proximity to the hotel. You can easily spend a few... More

Viana do Castelo is not a very remarkable town, but is great for Leisure, and the river front is very nice. Hotel Jardim must be the very best value for money in Portugal. Very friendly staff, spacious rooms, smartly decorated. Top breakfast! We will return some day, people!

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed it. Simple room with the greatest of views. Clean, good bath, all you need after a day of wonderful Viana. Kind and helpful people. Well situated and a very nice breakfast. Recommended for those who do not need luxury but opt for a friendly surroundings. Good for families. One tip for management:... More
