We chose the Pousada de Viseu to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary and had a lovely time there. The hotel is charming and beautiful and combines gracefully an historical building with all the modern comforts. The room we stayed in was very big and very clean, with modern decoration. The wi-fi works perfectly and the TV offers a wide range...

An old hospital has been converted into a Pousada with great results. Staff were welcoming and friendly. We had one of the superior rooms on the top floor, well worth the extra cost. Dinner was well presented but breakfast was somewhat disappointing as the choice was limited and the eggs were cold

This is an interesting place to stay as the rooms are around a central atrium with glass viewing windows surrounding each floor. The lobby has comfortable sofas and a piano entertainer in the evening. The dining room is small and the food not very varied but tasty. I could identify the vegetarian option although not very original. The rooms were...

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
