This Hotel sits up high on a promontory. It has very pretty plants and grounds, kept up immaculately. The beautiful Rossio tile intersection is nearby , As well as a lovely church that sits up very high too, providing nice views.

The front desk staff were not at all welcoming when we arrived - just complained about the heat! We saw them again an hour or so later, when they asked us to move out car out of the disabled parking space (where it was legitimately parked) to allow a coach to park. Then, come Saturday morning, we were woken up... More

We spent one night here with a tour group. We weren't in town much but the location was excellent as far as we could tell. The hotel is ageing (like me!) so could do with some TLC. Service was very good. Breakfast was very good. Wi-fi was very good.

We stayed in Grao Vasco hotel just one night during our trip around Portugal with Trafalgar. The hotel is very well-located downtown close to the Tourist centre and main attractions. There were lots of good restaurants around hotel area. At the same time, the hotel itself looked outdated. Our room was clean and had old furniture, very old and hardly... More

Nice hotel in the city. Enjoyed having free parking included and a lovely breakfast. Vanessa (Princessa Vanessa)who works at the front desk has a wonderful sense of humor and we enjoyed her company. She was very helpful in suggesting places to eat as well. We didn't spend a lot of time in Viseu as we were on our way up... More
