A boutique hotel full of charm, with lots of space and a great historic vibe to it. Rooms are great and quiet with lots of light and the situation is great in this sweet city. Amazing staff, very helpful.

Historic manor right in the heart of Viseu. Cathedral, museums, restaurants and bars at your door step.Means it can be noisy outside (and inside too...). Confortable, modern and large room/bathroom. Breakfast is average. Parking lot small yet very convenient (if there's room for your car.).Matress too soft and stains on carpets are negative aspects that should be fixed soon

I guess if you are attracted to old historic centres you should expect some trouble if you bring a car! Finding the hotel was a trick and getting out of the very limited parking a bigger one! Place did not quite "gel" for me. Grand public rooms from yesteryear but room we had was small and a bit tired. Breakfast... More

The hotel is located in an old palace downtown Viseu, next to the Cathedral square. The building has been restored, but the work done is not top standard. The common areas are often dark, especially the entrance-reception, and furnished in anonomous style. My room was OK, with working HiFi. Beakfast OK but nothing memorable. A major problem is that the... More

The Hotel is amazing. He has a charming ambiance, the staff is very nice. Great Breakfast, it's very clean. Amazing for romantic stays and people who like patrimonial tryps. It's located in the Historique centre of Viseu. The only problem is to find a park for the car once it's very bustling.

HOTEL PALACIO DOS MELOS is a very central hotel in the heart of Viseu very close to restaurants and the vibrant cafes, bars and touristic points of interest. It´s a renovated historical building, confortable, with elegant rooms and a nice restaurant. Breakfast is quite good and varied.

Being a palace I was waiting for something more upscale. The common areas are nice but nothing special, the feeble bedrooms, simple, modern genre but already somewhat demodees. Regular bathroom.Breakfast buffet, just normal. But the worst is the parking. Located in the old town is good for those who have no car, for us that used the car several times... More

Palacio dos Melos sits up high in the historic heart of Viseu, close to the cathedral and tourist office. Spacious, spotless rooms overlooking the old city. Very helpful staff, good breakfast, good value. Parking and access by car might be tricky, but I walked from the bus station, a good 15 minute slog uphill. Viseu is, even by Portuguese standards,...
