Reviewed yesterday NEW

Excellent centrally located in a former historic hospital with grandly appointed rooms sensitively modernised around the spacious central atrium and lounge. Great panoramic views of the city from the balconies of the fourth floor rooms. Excellent service and choice of food for breakfast and very reasonably priced meals and wines served in the restaurant. A great cultural stopover conveniently close...

Excellent location just a few minutes from the town centre yet the rooms are quiet and you certainly get a decent nights sleep. Rooms are spacious but are obviously designed by a man as there was lack of mirrors in the right places and our bathroom was too small, not enough room for toiletries and make up. The food was...

The pousada is well situated in the center of Viseu and fine for business as well as for a few days of holiday. The old Hospital is modernised and still keeps the overall architecture. The facilities are fine (indoor pool and spa area as well as outdoor pool). The bar and relaxing area is very nice in the courtyard. All...

This Pousada is in a former hospital very central to the town of Viseu and in common with other Pousada’s has been architect converted to create a modern hotel. Rooms are spacious and contemporary in décor and, we believe, all face outwards while the inner corridors wind round the courtyard which has been re-modelled to create a large atrium housing...

The hotel and staff were good and the room delightful and comfortable . The spa was very good with great facilities and a good masseuse. The bar was relaxing with comfy sofas in the main atrium with a good pianist . Breakfast was the only slight let down with a useless toaster and sad looking fruit salad which looked beyond...

The hotel is spectacular from a heritage and architectural point of view. Service is impeccable. Just two negatives on my latest (second) stay. The room this time was as large and well-designed as the last time, but suffered from an old-fashioned over-the-bathtub and not very efficient shower - strange in a recently opened hotel. And the coffee at breakfast in...

The Pousada is perfectly located in the central historic district. Our top floor bedroom was large, modern and comfortable. The dining room was rather cold and stark and way too brightly lit - an homage to hospital habitation I guess - sunglasses advised. Dining service was also stark - brisk and lacking any personal touch or attention. Prior to dinner...

Difficult to understand how a "Pousada" so beautiful and so well located has a restaurant so poor in quality and service. It's hard to say what's bad about that restaurant but in general terms, everything. The service sucks - there is no friendliness and the behaviors are not worthy of a Pousada's restaurant. The food is of poor quality and...

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
