I would say that a nice basic hotel, with good location in Braga next to the trainstation. Also a taxi station very close to the hotel, butvthe drivers were not so polite. The breakfast was quite limited, but ok compared to price. Staff nice, all did not speak english.

My stay at Basic Braga was wonderful. As the hotel is next to the train station and I both arrived and departed from Braga by train, the place was perfect. There are also urban buses that stop at the train station, which is near the historic centre.

This hotel is simple, but with everything you need. I payed 32 eur including breakfast and internet (otherwise is charged 2 eur/24h). It's clean and this is the most important and good location since it's attached to the railway station. I recommend it.

Good basic modern hotel. Basic Ikea style modern room. If used with the CP special promotion it can be as low as 25 euros per room breakfast included. If paid separately breakfast is definitively not worth it. Entrance to the hotel directly from lane 1 of the train station. Hotel is 15 mins walking to the centre (uphill). Hotel's restaurant...

I stayed 2 times in the hotel. First time was a good deal considering the low price paid...25€. But the price can change considering how full it is. On my last stay they charged near 50€, plus breakfast (almost 5)€.for this price you can get better options in the city. The hotel is very basic, don´t be expecting fancy things.... More

We are 2 middle age couples and we stayed in this hotel last weekend for just one night. It's modern and minimal (basic) in decoration. All you need for just one night. It's clean and cheap. The bedroom is small, specially the bathroom which is very, very small. One of my friends is 1,90mt high and had some problem moving... More

Yes it's basic but just as good as other hotels we've stayed in and paid a higher price. The rooms are clean ,the beds are comfortable enough for a night or two. The TV had lots of channels (in English) We paid 5 euros for breakfast, which was well worth it.

As it says it is basic but excellent value for a city break stop over. Not sure I would want to spend more than few nights there but that is just my opinion. Very clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Car park entrance next to roundabout near train station, Can be a bit busy and difficult to find. But... More

Hotel very clean and as the name said very basic but that is what you payed for. The best thing about this hotel is staff, kind , friendly & helpful. If I ever go to Braga again I know for sure where am I going to stay.
