The hotel staffs were nice. Since it was my first visit to Braga the staffs helped (mapped out where and how to get to my destinations) me get around the city. The room was super clean and the bed was comfortable. I had breakfast there twice and both times it was great – no disappointment. The hotel was in the... More

When you chose to stay thrice in the same hotel, that means a lot. On my fourth visit to Braga, I was on a group tour so, I stayed in a different hotel. But the Lady in the front desk of Hotel Caranda recognized me when I happened to pass by. I was impressed because my last stay with them... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. The purpose of my visit was to see Braga versus Porto in the Potuguese League. I caught a taxi from the station to the hotel for 4 Euro. It is only 10 min stroll into the city centre and it took me 40 minutes to walk to the football stadium on the northern edge... More

Good value for money - €40/night incl. breakfast. Room was pretty basic, although clean and tidy - breakfast OK. Service at checkin was incredibly slow, with the checkin assistant flipping back and forth between customers. If they hadn't been friends also, I would have considered this quite rude. Would stay again, although only because there's nowhere much classier in Braga.

Went to Braga for a conference, they also recommended this hotel. The location is quite central and the room was quite a deal, compared to other cities in Europe. The rooms were o.k.; except for the price and location there was nothing really special about the place - but not really anything to complain either. The staff was generally friendly,... More

Caranda Hotel is placed on a very busy road in Braga, going "up" to the city enter. The location itself is good: 10 minutes walking to the heart of the city, near some very good restaurants, few minutes from a cheap supermarket and with different parking place around it. At arrival, I've been sent to park my car to the... More
