Travellers' Choice
The Pousada de Viana do Castelo is located atop the Monte de Santa Luzia, in Viana do Castelo. Lofty and elegant, it further enhances the beauty of the city of Viana do Castelo. It features one of Portugal's most dazzling views of the mountain, the city, the Lima river, the Atlantic Ocean and the iconic Templo de Santa Luzia which, located just a few hundred metres from the hillside, frames and fills the landscape and the view. Inaugurated in 1921, this Pousada was born of the excellent restoration and remodelling of the Hotel de Santa Luzia, maintaining its stately features that make it so unique, such as its high granite walls and broad archways. During your stay, you can take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool and enjoy the view of the Serra de Santa Luzia, the city of Viana do Castelo, as well as the gorgeous Lima river and its mouth. If you would like to relax or rejuvenate yourself, schedule at massage at our Magic Spa. Feast on minhota cuisine at the Pousada's restaurant and enjoy the sophisticated and welcoming bar, with balconies and terraces for you to admire the view. The rooms offer free Wi-Fi and feature panoramic views over the estuary of the Lima river and the city.

Majestic, stunning views, lovely service from all staff, an entrance to die for, a terrace for your port and tonic, a restaurant with white tablecloths and overly lit. Old fashioned (in a positive sense) marble bathroom, terrace to view the town, sea and magnificent monument, wonky mirror and TV. Quite an eccentric feel to the place!

The Pousada is MAGICAL,top to bottom. The location has a world class view, the room (also with view) was spotless and perfectly appointed. The included breakfast covered all the bases and dinner was delightful. Oh, and yes, the service was perfect...gentleman Juan was remarkable! Do not miss this hotel!

The staff is incredible, nice and always available to improve ou experience. On the other hand the property is old and not well cleaned. Restaurant has a terrible menu with an even worse wine selection. Its said how the could manage to turn an incredible location into a bad product.

The Pousada is amazing, elegant and wonderful space in lounge, dining and gardens. Fabulous view of the Citadel and Viana dos Castelo. My score reflects poor sleep quality. The bedrooms have wonderful Egyptian cotton linen and heavy down duvet. The duvet would have been fine from end of October onwards but just too hot for September. The air conditioning works fine but my preference is not to have this on at night. On reflection we should have booked a room with balcony and I’d urge anyone to do that if they stay more than a night. Breakfast was excellent, everywhere was spotlessly clean , we had dinner in the restaurant on one night , I had birthday cake ( many thanks) , the menu was quite limited so guests may prefer to dine out if staying for a few days. Taxis to Viana are reasonably priced at 7.50 eu
