The architecture is excellent and gives a sense of space like few places can give when travelling.
Spacious room, original but excelent location of bathroom: turned away from the bed. Attention to all details. Excelent restaurant. Access to indoor swimmingpool: no attendants to be found
Very nice reconstruction of the ancient hospital. Wonderful space. Good price value at this time in low season. The noise of the bathroom exaustion is a little boring for me that have dificulty to sleep with noise.
Extremely friendly reception staff; unobtrusive staff at breakfast, exceptionally comfortable room (really understated on website photos); great location, stunning lounge area - Viseu is a really nice, smart town - peaceful location, handy for Busaco military museum. Not at all. Others have said it was hard to find the hotel, and this is becauase it is brand new, and the town has not yet erected signs to the hotel and locals do not know it. It is worth asking locals for the rotunda com o Pingo Doce supermercado - then they'll know how to direct you.
The Pousada was a great place to stay and is located in the best spot. The shopping center is nearby and so is the city center and the historic district. The room was great the jacuzzi and spa was great everything was fantastic. I am of portuguese heritage and came to visit family about 1/2 hour away in the countryside nearby. I wish I would have found this place sooner. Even if I wasn't familiar with the area the staff and location of the hotel is a great value. I would recoomend this pousada for vistitors and portuguese alike. 5 stars! the central bar area could be somewhat more animated.
absolute top in portugal
The staff cordiality, the building, the room space, the overall elegance. The fact that a golf event was going on during that weekend and the common areas were a little crowded.
After two weeks of touring Portugal I appreciated the calm atmosphere of the pousada. The staff was extremely helpful.
Good service and nice view from room.
It's a really 5 stars hotel.
5-Star luxury at a very accessible price. We liked everything - the pool and spa were a reason for choosing this option. Hotel is in a quiet area within walking distance of town centre.
The staff at the Montebelo are exellent it makes your stay easier.
Friendly staff. Clean room. Good breakfast.
space, view, facilities not enough parking space
Excelent breakfast The windows where dirty and the bar by the pool is a mini cabana
Penthouse with indoor swimming pool, sauna and turkish bath; outdoor swimming pools; towels available for each activity; good breakfast; easy to park the car; Computers with free internet access Nothing to say..
Great hotel ! Nice facilities and good restaurant.
Second time that we reserved this hotel. Large confortable room with a nice view. Very good breakfast and possibile to take it outside. spa available including sauna, hammam, jacuzzi and indoor swimming pool. Design hotel with very good quality. To improve the cleaning of the jacuzzi and the hammam...
The stay was very pleasant and I can point out all the ambiance completed with the fire places
The hotel is an old style english hotel. Very nice. Has it's charm. Value for your money: A+ No internet in rooms and W-LAN in public area very expensive. Should be for free nowadays. The matrasses are as old as the furniture, which may be painfull, depending on the state of your back. For the ones who might be interested: There is a railway passing right next to the hotel. People with light sleep may have a problem with this. However, I don't.
We chose this hotel with out knowing anything about the place and were very suprised to find such a charming place which has the atmosphere of a pousada.The room was very spacious and had beautiful antic furniture.
The environment of the hotel is very pleasant, facilities are old but comfortable, so we feel like going back in time, staff is very nice, excelent option to relax!! Breakfast is poor, does not correspond to the expectations.
Excellent facilities. Beautiful and quiet location. Very friendly staff. Nothing.
Beautiful hotel with great surroundings.Great value for the money.
Building design and hotel restaurant Finding the hotel in the town by car
beautiful place in a very good location
Liked the atmosphere of the hotel, a completely restructured old building. Very well maintained, beautifull location and scenery, friendly staff. lots of comfort, very clean. We did not appreciate the coffee at the breakfast, from a machine, awfull taste. Other than that there is nothing to complain about the breakfast.
i liked the common rooms they were spacious and comfortable the bed was NOT 5 STAR, poor pillows and mattress. The service was also substandard. no one helped us with the luggage although there were plenty of people in the office ares. staff was very friendly but lacking in training. Also there was no business center to check my email.
The staff were very nice and helpful. They did everything to make our stay pleasant. Breakfast well served and delicious. Very good location. Viseu is quite a nice place to visit and shop. The mattresses on the beds were terrible!!!! But that was about it!
Central positon in City. Car parking facilities. Friendly staff. Excellent facilities in room. NO
Took us 45 minutes to find hotel. Stopped and asked for directions three different times.
The building and historical location Definitively the hotel has not a 5 stars standart
friendly staff, sitting room great space, choice of inexpensive and luxury rooms
Well, it's a 5 star hotel in an old palace, what can I say. Somehow I expected more from the room, though. It was very good, but like in any very good 3 or 4 star hotel, nothing really special. If you get a good rate, then it's OK because the building is impressive. But paying something like 100 for a double would not be worth.
it being so central room too small, dinner not so good
Superb position with easy pedestrian access to the old centre of Viseu. As with most of central Portugal the accommodation is somewhat old- fashioned, but the room was large, clean and totally workable. Friendly staff and on-site easy parking ( a real benefit).
Room clean and proper.nice breakfast. Atentive personnal. I find no errours
Good location, nice rooms, nice pool.
Reasonable price for offered services.
The hotel is in the center of the city and is very quite
location to old town, friendliness of front desk no bellhop to take our luggage to and from room.Breakfast did not start until 7:30 which was late and we left the hotel without coffee.
We found the hotel to be very welcoming, the personnel were very helpful, the food good and the rooms comfortable and very clean. The location is easy to find and well placed for visiting the shopping areas. The parking is also practical and easy to enter and leave. Nothing to report.
Friendly staff on front desk. Smoking. The smoke from the bar was filtering into our bedroom. The room was fogged with cigarette smoke. Smoking in alll communal areas.
The hotel is an old, beautiful family house. It's full of history and the guest can certainly breathe the history while walking throughthe very well restored and maintained facilities. The gardens are beautiful and very romantic. The service is good and attentious. Rooms and whole hotel is very clean and confortatble. Only minus is the location, since there's not much around, so it's a good option if you're looking for a getaway...
Very nice location and attractive ols style casa in the pictures, beautiful garden Hotel was empty , only one more room occupied , this did raise some concern
The staff were helpful. Facility was clean and comfortable. I would give it my best recommendation!
Friendly staff, very clean rooms, near some local shops, free car parking little expensive
great staff and very helping,clean and very nice hotel
Friendliness of the staff - and in primary - the restaurant on the hotel - perfekt service - We felt wellcome - !
Nice, clean, good value for money, the hotel staff, the cleanliness. The 'rush' for breakfast. Closed at 10 AM sharp... :-)
Staff always very helpful. Good sized clean rooms. Excellent Value
Central position, parking and clean No hair shampoo in bathroom!
Central location, but tucked away off the main road, so you wouldn't know you were in the centre of town. Had character, was clean & comfortable and value for money - and had internet access & pool Yes - the pool was closed for cleaning, which I did not know when I booked, or I might have looked for somewhere to stay closer to the place I was visiting. (I was on a dual break where I was partly on business and partly relaxing.) Fancy cleaning a pool in july! That's why I have marked down the facilities. Also breakfast culd include a few extras like eggs, etc
I liked the 24 hour reception duties. The breakfast was lovely and all of the staff were very attentitive. I thought that there could of been more lighting in our bathroom around the bath area as i almost slipped as it is very dark.
The food, the daily available free newspaper
The hotel is one of the best in Portugal. Despite it's location in the city center it has an open swimming pool, all day working restaurant and convenient parking lots. 3.60 euro/day Internet access in a room is suitable and better than in other Portuguese hotels. The staff is very friendly. The hotel exit is to the central narrow street. It took about 40 min to leave the hotel after check-out by car as the exit was blocked by two service trucks.
Quiteness, Cleanness and friendly approach of the staff, the environment was beautiful (direct hotel access to the riverside and within the boundaries there is a small waterfall as well) The hotel needs rennovation, all hotel furniture is old and out of date. Beds are not comfortable. Some advertised hotel facilities like indoor pool belongs to the spa facility which is not in the hotel and requires additional payment. (And actually the indoor pool is a hot therapy pool) The hotel environment needs more care, looks like they do not want to spend money for garden care at all.
Nature, tranquility. The Hotel has no comfort and the prices are very high.
It location very near to the thermal spa. There is still a revival of old days, when people dreessed up for dinner. The rooms were nice but not luxurios.
Location, Hotel architecture and decoration.
Beautiful settings for a beautiful hotel. Situated high in the mountains in a remote village and can be hard to find at night. Hotel decor and grounds are very nicely designed. Swiming pool is large and there are many lounge chairs in the shade and there is an outside hot tub as well. Food in the restaurant was very tasty and gourmet. Comfortable bed. Friendly staff - speaks English. we loved everything
The landscaping was beautiful with flowers everywhere. The view from our room looked out on the Serra Estrela with the wooded valley below. The staff were very friendly and helpful.Breakfast was very nice with fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal bread and jam but a a bit late so no coffee until 8:30 am. Except for the late breakfast there were no bad points as far as we are concerned.
Hotel is lovely, the location is good for exploring, the views are stunning, food was good. The breakfast was too basic, more variety please. The hotel closed early, so nt for those who like a late night, no bar! Also being very rural it would have been good to have satellite tv- news/ sport in english, there was only portugese tv available, which in this day and age isn't enough.
Unique location. Very friendly. Delicious food for normal price. It feels like comming home!! None
Nice atmosphere, clean rooms and surroundings (swimmingpool), nice owners, excellent food, great dogs! A welcome drink would be nice after a long drive; we heared the last night at dinner that walking paths are available! Would be nice when we were informed earlier during our stay.
Nicely decorated room with a fantastic view and friendly staff Fairly expensive. Bathroom was not up to the rooms standard and toilet smelled quite a lot... it should also have individual shampoo and shower gel bottles
Cosy hotel, very nice for romantic weekend's, view is excellent, staff is nice. Not to many attencion for details in cleanliness and guest service. Very small choice in the buffet breakfast, and the heating was not very strong.
Very friendly staff and hotel owners. Multilingual. Very romantic room. Excellent retaurant and very nice breakfast.
cosiness, comfort, good atmosphere
The appearance was very warm and welcoming. The staff was more then friendly and did their very best to find room for a little longer stay. We liked the lot.
Perfect relaxation and great value. The food was plentiful and beautifully presented and great care taken by all the staff.
The pool was a little far away from the hotel.
The sound insulation is terrible. The lack of a ramp in the main hall, made us carry the bags over a flight of 4 steps. We could hear the next door neighbour talking on the phone over the wall. It does not live up to its 4 star rating!
Location of hotel allowed easy access to Estrela mountains. Staff were as helpful as possible and nothing was too much trouble. Very accomodating.
Clean and comfortable rooms, great location, very nice stuff! There's no fault to be find!
Large, comfortable, pleasant room with balcony. Good location and decent breakfast. Chain hotel so rather impersonal. It took ten minutes to get my key from the rececptionist on one occasion as she was on the phone.
location comfortable staff friendly reasonably priced en suites a bit dated,maybe fixtures and fittings showing their age breakfast very limited
