"O Laranjeira" Pensão Restaurante is uniquely situated in Viana do Castelo historical centre close by the emblematical Praça da Républica. This vintage building has a well-referenced traditional kitchen restaurant, 7 theme rooms and 5 apartments (future project).
The 3rdLaranjeira generation decided to refresh the image of the Pensão – the oldest commercial building in Viana – by telling their family story, reminiscing Viana’s traditions and folklore.
We wanted our rooms to be an unforgettable experience to our guests and created a cosy environment and still maintaining its historical legacy.
Each room has a different theme: "Traje à Vianesa", "Eiffel", "Filigrana", "Lethes", "Santa Luzia", "Tapetes" (flowers street decoration), "Traje à Vianesa" (traditional costume) e "Vinho Verde".
Mostly traditional Portuguese cuisine the Laranjeira’s Restaurant transmit its visitors traditional flavours a cosy service and family ambience. Like the good old days!
We asked and stayed in the St. Luzia room and in real life it's even more beautiful than on the pictures! It's very artistic, clean and cozy. Very detailed and it's clear that Helena really put a lot of effort in creating this room. The walls are very thin so you can hear your neighbours but the room and hotel itself will let you forget that in a second. The location is perfect. Viana Do Castelo is an ideal town to discover by foot, day and night, and the hotel is in the middle of everything, near the most populair praca of Viana. The only thing is that we received directions to park our car in a parking garage, while a few streets further it looked like there was free parking available, as we asked before making reservations. Still, a 24hour ticket for this garage is only €3.99 so that shouldn't be a dealbreaker;-) Helena was very fast in answering questions before and after booking and also during our stay she, or her family, were always available. It is so nice to see how this family works together and the respect they have for eachother and their guests. Very friendly and polite people and we felt honoured to meet the cute little baby. Helena and family, thanks again for our wonderful stay at O Laranjeira!
The location is excellent, in the middle of the city center and also close to the train station and lots of good restaurants. The hotel is newly renovated, the rooms are nicely decorated and clean but small and with thin walls. Breakfast ist good and Helena is a friendly person.
I felt very welcome and comfortable in this place. Is is close from train and bus station, situated in a very center of the town, the main square of the downtown.
All Laranjeira pension and it's restaurant makes great impression on me. I liked amazing atmosphere there. The history of several generations who worked there and left their imprint make this place very special. There is calm, clean and cosy. I liked the room very much: interesting, modern and functional design, wonderful view through the window, terrace, accuracy, high quality of bedding, there is really cosy. Downstairs there is a great restaurant: perfect food, quite atmosphere and excellent service. Helena is a great host warm and helpful. I got everything I needed very fast and I felt care from her and all the personal during all my stay.
I'm happy, because I already know the best place where to stay in Viana next time. I would highly recommend this place!
Helenas Hotel ist sehr gut im alten Stadtzentrum gelegen. Die Zimmer sind kreativ gestaltet, sauber und gut ausgestattet, einige mit Balkon und toller Aussicht. Helena war sehr Hilfsbereit und sehr nett. Auch das Frühstück ist gut und das Essen im Restaurant empfehlenswert.
Wir bedanken uns für eine wundervolle Zeit in Viana do Castelo.
Helena has a great little hotel to stay in the heart of the city. Close to all major points of interest and just on the other side of the street you will find the best bakery in the city. The room was really nice, clean and tidy. I strongly recommend.
The location was perfect for exploring the town by foot. Helena was very welcoming and always had a smile on her face when I saw her. I didn't realize when I booked that breakfast was included at the restaurant downstairs; an added bonus! The room was quiet and cleaned by the staff daily.
Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit bei Helena in Ihrem kleinen Hotel.Helena war sehr freundlich und hat uns alles gezeigt.Das Zimmer ist sehr klein,aber (website hidden) wurde jeden Tag gereinigt und Handtücher gewechselt.Das Frühstück war auch sehr lecker,alles vorhanden (Kuchen,Obst,Kaffee usw.)
Unser Zimmer ging zur Straße hinaus und war in der Nacht doch sehr laut,dadurch konnten wir nicht so gut schlafen.Die letzte Nacht von unseren Aufenthalt mussten wir das Zimmer wechseln und hatten ein Zimmer nach hinten raus.Dieses Zimmer war schön leise und wir hatten eine ruhige Nacht.Helena hat uns noch Frühsrück für den letzenTag vor die Tür gestellt,weil wir so zeitig zum Flieger mussten (vielen Dank ).

About the Host, Helena
Hi! My name is Helena, i'm a portuguese girl who decided to embrace a family business in 2010.
My project is a traditional restaurant with 7 rooms in the old house of my grand parents. Grandmother still alive and they are my inspiration! My father is the 2nd generation of this business and an expert in welcoming people and serving food in the restaurant. My mother is taking care of details :)
We love to welcome people and give them the best in town. Good food, good wine, good atmosphere!
Come meet the Laranjeira's family.
I love... food and good wine, good conversation, traveling, to dance and to practice yoga :)
