I booked 2 nights in Hotel Sao Joao, but got an upgrade to this hotel. On top the Bom Jesu hill. Took a bit time to find by car, lots of 'sharp rights and sharp lefts' by gps. But when arrived: great location, beautiful panoramic view over Braga and surroundings. Hotel was good, clean, friendly staff, indoor swimming pool and... More

Much better than expected, high on a hillside, surrounded by historical structures, near funicular, quiet at night, really nice pool area. Ate at nearby hotel restaurant with incredible views. Worthwhile stop!

There are 4 hotels in the Area, and there is one that is better regarding accomodations, and the facilieties.The Hotel is rather an old house adapted to be a Hotle seems to me, but for the price you pay is decent. Please ask fro a room in the higher floor, viewwing the city of Braga. The Hotel has a swimng... More

Although location might be rather good, do not expect the quality matches its 4-star rate. Asking at the entrance for a double-bed bedroom instead a twin bedroom, me and my boyfriend were put in a moulded-smelled room with a huge spot of humidity on the wall. The thick humid air was not improved even after opening the only tiny window... More

We were put up here after our booking at another hotel directed us here. Fortunately, this was a decent hotel with good surroundings, most accessible to Bom Jesus. Access to this hotel is rather tricky. Be sure to have GPS if you're travelling by car!

This was the most unusually located hotel I have ever stayed in - on a mountain-top pilgrimage site (Bom Jesus de Monte) within the precincts of a cathedral overlooking Braga - quite beautiful. The room was comfortable and the service and breakfast very good. Dinner could be had in a second hotel across the cathedral square, with an even more... More

We stayed here for one night while visiting Braga. We decided to stay next to Bom Jesus do Monte instead of the center of Braga and were glad we did. Even though the rooms are a bit old-fashioned, they are very clean. But the best thing is the incredible view of the Bom Jesus church next door - not to... More

Hotel do Templo is very near the great cathedral at Bom Jesus do Monte, Braga. When I said "very near", I really meant it. It is just in the garden of it...... Especially at night it is a little bit frightening to be in there, you can really feel all those spirits around..... Since the location of the hotel is... More
