An amazing winding road up to the hotel above the stunning church and with breathtaking views of the coast. The reception staff gave us a warm welcome & offered a space to park our motorbike right under their desk window. Our room was large & elegant with dual aspect, the bathroom small but clean. A lack of plugs for charging...

Stayed here with two children in a superior family room. The room was smallish, but well appointed and had an extra bed for our 11yo and a crib for our 4mo. Service was excellent and the view was astonishing. Apparently National Geographic named it the third best hotel view in the world at one point. You can walk to the...

I visited here with my wife in February 2017 and it was absolutely fantastic. The staff were fabulous, the pousada was the best we had stayed at and the whole experience was simply wonderful. We liked it so much that we will be returning in the autumn.

We stayed for 2 nights in this Pousada. It sits on top of a hill with great views. There are also two sights worth going to see within walking distance of the Pousada. We dined in the restaurant here also which was very good!

As a regular costumer of Pousadas de Portugal, I need to say that this is one of the top 3 in Portugal! The view is considered by National Geographic as one of the most impressive panorama views ever! The food is amazing, as well as all the service. The park is free. This is an old hotel, from 1920, and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Viana do Castelo, Santa Luzia, built in 1918, is fruit of the remodelling of the old Santa Luzia Hotel, maintaining the impressive characteristics which set it apart with the high majestic granite walls and the wide archways. A few hundred metres from the city stands the Mount Santa Luzia, dominating the metropolis and the Lima estuary up to the Atlantic, where our eyes are fed by the luxurious panorama. There lies the Pousada de Viana do Castelo, offering its guests from the moment they arrive, a magnificent view of the city which according to history has been occupied since the remote Mesolithic times; testimonies state numerous archaeological findings from the pre-Roman citadel. Viana do Castelo offers a superb panoramic view. It's a tourist city for its excellence, where perfect harmony of progress and wealth meet, a true living museum of ethnography and folklore. The heritage of Minho has a unique richness, with striking landscapes, churches, convents and beautiful palaces. The feast in honour of Our Lady of Agony, which runs from the 17th through to the 20th of August, stands out as the most colourful of Portugal. Classic and refined, the Pousada de Viana do Castelo exalts luxury in every detail and depth, which will surely make a memorable experience. ... more   less
