A nice hotel with old world charm. Well-maintained. The owner was very nice. My biggest complaints are that there was no fan or air-conditioner in the room. As a result I had to leave the terrace door open so the air didn't get stuffy but my room was facing the road coming off the bridge so the traffic sound was... More

I stumbled into the center of Viana do Castelo tired, wet and exhausted, while walking the Camino Portuguese. Hence I felt lucky to come upon this small, centrally located hotel. It was nothing large or fancy, but I felt comfortable and cared for. I also appreciated the building's interesting, faintly deco architecture, with its portholes and pretty yellow awnings. I've...

After walking the Camino de Santiago, we rented a car there and headed south into Portugal. We wanted to drink port in Porto. But, Porto was way too busy so we headed back north and stumbled into the port town of Viana do Castelo. It's a major fishing village where the river empties into the Atlantic and filled with great... More

I would like to contradict the review on April 4. The wifi works well, the rooms do not smell, there are restaurants within a 5 min walk and the man at the front desk was courteous, helpful and full of suggestions for authentic places to eat/drink (I can only assume the earlier contributor was directed to a food mall because...

The place smelled awful, the wifi they advertise would not work in our room. The restaurant was closed very early so we could not have dinner upon our arrival at 9 pm or so and the man at the front desk could only recommend a mall food court for us to go and eat at. The front desk is not... More

Arrived late in Viana from Oporto airport without booking. Immediately welcomed and made to feel at ease - received good urgent advice on a late meal venue. The room on the first floor was very basic, not that big, but clean. The hotel went to great lengths to heat room for unexpected guests! The breakfast was usual bland cheese and... More

We had a lovely room with a balcony, but the busy street and the proximity of the rail were not a problem. The traffic all but disappears after rush hour, and the trains do not run late. Very close to the beautiful, old downtown, with a pleasant breakfast included. We very much enjoyed our two nights at Calatrava

“Best view on west side of hotel, but noisy and hot from setting sun. East side quieter and cooler but lacking in view.”

“The main road is quiet from 11pm ish until about 7am. The rooms looking out at the front are double glazed. The rooms at the side are away from the road but are not double glazed. I would take the double glazed rooms at the front, which also have a balcony”
