Hotel Palacio Dos Melos
Ranked #3 of 13 Hotels in Viseu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 11, 2012

It´s a small boutique hotel in a renovated old building just in the heart of Viseu's "centro histórico" (old town), close to the Sé (main church) and Museu Grão-Vasco.
Close by are several small bars and restaurant and it feels secure to wander by even late at night.
This hotel offers several small living rooms, tastefully decorated and has a small "patio" vith nice view. The hotel has a free but very small parking facility (not at all recommended for bad drivers as myself...) and its not easy to park in the nearby streets.

The hotel is very cosy and clean. It has several small living rooms, ancient style decorated. The room and bathroom are spacious, clean and well decorated. Breakfast was nice, could have a bit more variety, but the food was fresh and tasty. Had a problem with the internet, which is free, by cable in the rooms, or wireless in the living rooms. Despite the efforts made by the staff in the reception desk, neither one worked. It was an enjoyable stay and we will go back.

Well located, confortable room with bad pilows. TV with a very, very, very limited number of channels. If you want a 5* don't choose this hotel. Everything would be fine if the rating was 4*. For a 5* the breakfast is poor.

Helpful staff but too young and inexperienced. Parking is awful though the hotel location is excellent and the hotel is beautiful from the outside. Good architecture. Inside...well...the room we stayed in was dreadful in terms of decoration and the dinning room was shockingly pseudo-modern for an ancient bulding like that, showing lack of taste. Regular breakfast.

We stayed overnight on a trip through Northern Portugal. The hotel is an interesting renovation of an old building. A nice mix of old and new. It is really well located in the historic center of Viseu... making it very easy to see the main churches, the Grau Vasco museum , and other sights. The staff is quite helpful. I would return here.
