Central location near the old city center, old building perfectly adapted to a high standard hotel. Very nice spacious room, fantastic bed and lining, well decorated. Very good and varied breakfast. A very good affordable place to stay for a couple of days.

This hotel was set-up in a very old stone hospital after renovation. The result is perfect. You have very comfortable rooms with a 5 star equipments. The buffet breakfast is very good with lots of Portuguese cakes. The architecture is wonderful. I did not experiment the pool as it was cold season.

An old hospital in the town of Viseu has been transformed in an upmarket hotel. The architects were inspired to transform the inner courtyard by covering it up with a see-through roof-four storys high! The echo is amazing! The rooms are monstrously big-you can get lost in them! The beds are enormous, there are lots of pillows, all comfortable and...

Really nice hotel live music at night piano and saxophone while we were there - the room was great with a view of the city. Lovely town centre stayed a couple of nights en-route. Found it hard to find anything else to see locally after a couple of nights though.

The pousada is located in a convenient location for walking to many attractions. It was easy to access and parking was free. The staff at the front desk were efficient and Ivan was especially helpful. The converted cloister was enormous with lots of seating. There was a bar in one corner and on a Friday night there were musicians playing....

This was one stop on a tour of seven Pousadas and Paradors. When we booked it, I was a little worried as I knew nothing about Viseu, we stayed two nights and by the time we left, we had fallen in love with the city and it’s people. The Pousada is magnificent, clearly a hospital at one time, even somehow,...

A wonderful place, the outside swimming pool is great. The buildings are large and rooms very comfortable. From the Spa, stairs lead you to a small indoor swimming pool and a gym room. The former pharmacy is now a bar with comfortable sofas. Everything was perfect, the staff is discreet and useful, I really enjoyed my stay here.

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
