The hotel is very nice and offers on-site parking. The staff at reception were very nice. The room was a decent size and the view nothing fantastic. Unfortunately we didn't get a very good night's sleep as the mattress was horrible.

Room Tip: Choose a room far away from the elevators

Stayed one night en route back to Spain. The Hotel was very comfortable, with a large room and adequate bathroom. There was Free parking in front of the hotel and a commercial area just across the. Road. We had a good buffet breakfast included in the price and also had dinner in the hotel's restaurant. We had the set menu, which was excellent value for money, but there were also a la carte options. We liked Viseu very much and wished we had booked for longer. The staff were excellent and we would certainly like to return in the future. This was our first visit to central Portugal and we would love to return to this area, as we thought it was beautiful.

stayed here as had car and hotel was close to motorway ,,arrived and we found the hotel quite easy ,,on check in the reception area was outdated and could do with a revamp ,,the receptionist was polite spoke good english and gave us another room as original room was not cleaned ..wifi worked very good in rooms and air conditioning was good also ,,the hotel is about 1.5 mile to city centre so we drove in as was late and hungry ,,had breakfast the next morning and was a buffet breakfast and enjoyed it ,again did nt spend much time in hotel but overall impression is that the hotel and rooms are outdated and could do with a renovation ,,

Room Tip: avoid rooms to the front as nosiy with traffic

I stayed twice at Hotel Durao. It is a good option for anyone looking for a place to stay in Viseu with easy parking and not far from the city center, at a reasonable price. It is a conventional business style hotel, but it is also well suited to a short leisure stay. Some rooms have extra beds, which may be a good option for someone travelling with young kids.

The hotel is somewhat dated but, nevertheless, the rooms and barroom are spacious and clean, have a good working AC and the bath is OK. Updating a concern of a previous commenter, all room locks are now fitted with a proximity-based RFID card reader that work great.

While there is outside parking space available, the hotel includes a internal private parking space, which is a convenient option to park safely a car or a bike. The start of the beautiful 50Km long bike path "Ecopista do Dao" is nearby, and therefore this is also an excellent base for a bike ride.

The breakfast buffet is good for the hotel ranking, and it includes all conventional options as well as eggs, bacon and sausage. Bread choices could be improved, but they fit well the minimum requirements.

In short, a good option at Viseu, with good parking facilities, at a reasonable price.
