A big shoutout to the wonderful and friendly staff at Montebelo Viseu Congress. This was our first visit to Portugal itself, but right from the planning stage the hotel was very helpful in arranging for a pickup from Porto airport, giving us details about the weather etc. Sandra, Patricia, Hugo: Thank you guys for all your help. The stay was fantastic, the view was awesome and the food was divine. We were a big group attending a wedding and the hotel made us feel right at home. The bar area is beautiful, overlooking the scenic views Viseu has to offer. The rooms were decent sized and well maintained. Breakfast was elaborate and the staff very courteous as well. They were very patient with our demands for our toddler ( and him running riot around the restaurant!!) The city center is walkable if you are adventurous (weather permitting), else a cab is just a call away and takes about 5 minutes to reach the downtown area. If you are planning a trip to Viseu, i think it is a no brainer that this is one of the best places to stay. Even if you are planning to be in Porto, do plan a trip to Viseu, it is well worth the drive.
we were staying here for a friends wedding -there was a large group of us.. rooms are very spacious and beds v comfy -we were on the 5th floor facing the pool and had a balcony which i def recommend asking for.. The staff were very friendly and helpful -really good breakfast, lots of choice... and we had super sunny weather which was perfect for the lovely outdoor pool.. The hotel is in a great location -15 min walk to bars/restaurants etc...would def retunr!!!
Nice hotel, well located in the city. As a 5 Star hotel, give you lot of facilites. The staff were very kind and helpfull. The breakfast is very generous and full of goog thing. The parking inside is an advantegous in the winter. Big room with space to work, as you need so. Of course the city have lot and lot of good restaurants also. A place to repeat every time I will have to work there.
During my stay it was all perfect, except the weather! On sunny days it´s just a best place to start a trekking in the nearby villages. If you have time, then you have to enjoy place. The place is easy to reach by car and the city of Coimbra is just 40 kilometers southwards.
My experience of this hotel is that it is very strange that they claim to have 5 stars, but when I compare to international 5 star hotels it can not live up to this. I write the positive things first: 1.The staff is very friendly and try to help You 2.The english knowledge is ok and You can communicate without a problem. 3. Breakfast is nice 4. WiFi is working and avceptable fast 5. The rooms are spacious The negative things are: 1.Every time I had to wait 40 minutes when making a meal order via room service this even though it is low season and not many guests in the hotel. 2.The maintenance is not ok in some areas, eg the mens sauna area is very dark due to that there are broken lamps (eady to detect and fix by by the maintenance department) but nobody was fixing the problem during my 4 days stay. During my first evening I asked them to turn on the sauna, but it was not working, this due to lack of maintenance 3.Generally the standard is quite old (even though it is nice), but some areas needs a refurbishment quite urgently, eg the mens sauna it looks quite old and not welcoming. 4.Wrong information (see photo), there are no restaurant closeby and in the hotel information they clearly write that they have room service in between 11-23. But when phoning the room service 18:00 they claim that they start serving as from 19:30, not 11-23 as stated. I have give a 3 rating anyway, this very much due to the staff in the reception is very supportive and tried to help me.
The rooms are very comfortable, the kids loved the indoor pool, Jacuzzi & saunas. The food at the restaurant was good and waited to high class. The breakfast was also good with a wide selection of breads and local goodies.
We enjoyed our stay here this December. The hotel atmosphere is beautiful. Our room (city-view; not the pool view) had a private balcony, and another window which opens up to the common bigger balcony. When you open both the window and door, you create a large circulation of cool air - which was fun! :) We were able to see some snow-capped mountains in the very far distance. Presumably the mountain range of Serra da Estrela. We enjoyed the dinner - both the food and the service. Decent price, and plenty of food to fill you up for the night. The outdoor pool was closed as this is winter. However, the small temperature-controlled indoor pool was nice, and next to the spa. Breakfast and access to spa, Turkish bath, sauna, and all were inclusive in the price - which was very reasonable for the price. Wish we stayed longer. Highly recommend.
Nice Conference hotel. In very good position and very good outside place. Very clean and confortable, the restaurant is very good and alo served breakfast is excellent. Maybe there is a leak in service at breakfast. Beautiful the ouside bar terrace.
The staff is very nice, the restaurant menu's choice is good, the pool and spa are very relaxing. The worst were the rooms. The AC was terribly loud and the pillows were just awful. I knew of this type of pillows from around fifty years ago, but I had never even thought of putting my head on one of them. I had the worst night sleep ever and my neck still hurts.
I stayed just one night while attending a work reunion and a was surprised for the room space, the view of the city! The room was clean and comfortable! Very good sleep quality! Breakfast was very good with a great variety of food and products of the region Certainly a place to return
