Hotel Palacio Dos Melos
Ranked #3 of 13 Hotels in Viseu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 December 2017

The service and the room are good. The problem is the discotheque accros the street. It closes at 4.00! I am not able to sleep with the window closed because of claustrofobia and the hip hop bass of the bar is very loud since it is three meters away. The matras of the bed as well as the pillow are great but in this case no use.

Room Tip: Don´t take a room at the front of the hotel. Hopefully there are rooms at the back of the hotel.

What a really neat place to stay at. The hotel is built into the old walls of the city, is very clean with spacious rooms and large bathroom. The staff are very friendly, and the breakfast buffet was great. Right in the heart of the old city, with lots of good restaurants, bars, cafes, all within a few minutes walk. Also easy walking distance to some of the historical sites, and museums.
We had a bit of a hard job finding the hotel, but really glad we did, it was worth the search. Even our GPS lady was confused at one point!! There is a small car park, which is not easy to get in and out of.
To sum up. Would definitely stay here again, and can definitely recommend the hotel.

Our room and bathroom were very good and clean. The bed was great and the room was quite spacious. We loved breakfast with local products. The location was excellent, right in the middle of the historical area.

Right in the heart of the old city, quite near the historical sites and museums, this hotel offers a clean, comfortable and quiet stay. The internet is a bit slow but available throughout the hotel. Breakfast is good. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Average place, doesn't look like being 4 star hotel.

Very slow internet connection and dark rooms. Only one light bulb in the bathroom.

Customer service on the other hand was very nice and helpful. Great location and quiet overall.
