Just a stone throw from Rossio central square, the hotel offers an excellent location. Furniture and bathrooms are quite old and in rooms opposite the traffic lights, like mine 102, there is a constant bip noise every 2 minutes to help the blind crossing the street. The problem is that it is very loud and only stops around midnight and starts again at 7.00 AM. This was very unpleasant and I know the hotel is not responsible but they should complain at the city hall to reduce the volume at least. Breakfast room is pleasant and the buffet is not bad, maybe more fruits and yogurt would be appreciated.

The hotel is nicely decorated, and has a lot of old world charm. There is a nice common area on each floor. Friendly staff, clean, safe, good location, good wifi, basic breakfast, reasonable price, everything you are looking for in a value hotel. Would stay there again.

Old world charm personified. Welcoming, warm, comfortable, great value. As you step out of the lift, you enter another world, another century, where service comes as standard. Highly recommended. Centrally located, the Avenida makes a great base for exploring Viseu.

An old fashion Hotel well located. Breakfast with little variety (and no staff appeared during all the breakfast time). In the rooms (old fashion), the taps has no mixers which causes more water loss, mainly on icy days like this time. Nice staff.

I visited the hotel and got a room for 3(2 beds) for 55euros. For the price, it is ok because everything is in big need of renovation. It looks like the hotal is exactly as built 40 years ago. That said, it was clean and we had plenty of hot water. No problem there. The location is central and downtown access is easy. Good value for the price. Free breakfast included.
