We stayed three nights at the Pousada de Viseu and enjoyed our trip. The place is beautiful and has a lot of history. It's been very nicely restored in a way that is luxurious but shows its history. Room was big and comfortable although television a bit small for a room of its size; in saying that, the channel selection... More

This is a comfortable and typically good Pousada which is a real credit to the chain. We stayed 3 nights in a standard room which was of a high level of furnishings with plenty of space. I personally found the bed a little hard but this did not spoil my sleeping. All areas of the hotel were comfortable & being... More

Perfect relaxing hotel with a very nice exterior pool and a very charming spa!! I had higher expectations regarding the restaurant that were not met regarding the food. Regarding the restaurant staff or the hotel it self, is at the level of the very best!!

On august 12th, A lady at the lobby (during the night shift) didnt allow me to come in to the restaurant, and she even asked me to leave the lobby!!!! And the only reason was that she couldnt find the name of one of my clients in her system. And The best thing was, that I had a reservation for... More

We found the hotel very welcoming and enjoyed the time we spent using the spa facilities. The hotel is a beautiful historic building with a quality breakfast. Very central with good parking. Nice outdoor pool. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Viseu is a charming small city with a nice center, but it is probably not one of the principal tourist attractions of Portugal. Our main reason for staying there was that we planned a break in the middle of an intense travel schedule through the country, and we chose the Pousada De Viseu as a refuge – after all it... More

Especially the view from the balconies in top floor rooms...modern on the inside while classic on the outside, the Pousada is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Viseu's old town...walking distance to the Cathedral yet light and breezy on a hill outside the narrow streets--excellent.

This seemed a great opportunity to stay in a Pousada, given that it is still relatively central and wasn't too expensive. The room was very nice, although no view to speak of and the hotel building itself is magnificent. The pool was nice and the breakfast was excellent. We also ate in the restaurant for lunch though and were fairly... More

This was my favorite Pousada for comfort and impeccable service. It used to be a hospital converted into a 5 star hotel, one of the more modern pousadas. We were given a huge suite with the most comfortable bed and a fruit basket upon arrival. The common areas are spectacular and well taken care of. The swimming pool looked inviting... More

Up to the standard you come to expect from Pousadas. Comfortable room. Comprehensive Breakfast selection. Dinner menu however somewhat predictable. We were however only there for 2 nights so not a problem.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Viseu is built on the old Sao Teotonio Hospital, one of the oldest hospitals of the Viseu city, having opened in 1842. The entrance to this eighteenth century majestic and impotent building is crowned by 3 statues - Faith, Hope and Charity - which look attentively over the fabulous landscape above the old city - the name given to the oldest part of the town which is located the Cathedral and the Cava Viriato. This hotel in Viseu was a project by the Portuguese architect Goncalo Byrne and opened to the public in 2009, offering a hotel Spa at the heart of the city. The Spa is situated in the old hospital chapel and offers sauna, Jacuzzi, Turkish baths, tropical showers, gym and an indoor pool heated for better relaxation. Its central location and private parking are an invitation to visit places of interest nearby, such as the green Fontelo Forest Park, Cava de Viriato, the Roman ruins and the Grao Vasco Museum of Renaissance paintings, the treasure of the Cathedral and the Home Museum of Almeida Moreira, which tells the story of a historic city. ... more   less
