This was the best hotel we stayed in in Portugal in 13 days. Better even than 5 star hotel on our itinerary. We got a mini suite, great bed, plate with fruit and complimentary bottle of water. Very big bathroom with toiletries. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, but somewhat limited choices. Location outstanding. Overall a... More

This is the second time I stay in this great hotel. Nice rooms, clean, very kind reception. And below you find one of the best restaurant in Braga. The position is ideal, and it is very quite. Beds quite comfortable.

We liked this hotel and would recommend it to others. It was clean, comfortable and in a good central location. The downside is that the price is a little high for what you get, but if you are spending a day or two in Braga and don't want to search around too much for a decent place to stay I'd... More

Not sure how this property is four star. It's far from it. The rooms are very outdated, the linens fraying, the carpets grubby, the rooms smelly, shower curtain moldy. It's in real need of updating. The strangest thing is that all the pillows are stored in closests rather than on the beds. Not sure when the pillow cases were last... More

We chose to stay in this central location for the Festival of St John (23/24 June) so that we could celebrate and party and walk everywhere. We arrived by car on Saturday afternoon and parking or finding the hotel was no problem for our GPS. There is no parking fee in the area from Saturday lunchtime till Monday morning and... More

The breakfast of pastries, fresh fruit etc was really nice and we ate twice in the restaurant as it was so good' and you... More

We arrived by train to Braga and the taxi ride took about 10 minutes. Based on reviews we were expecting a fabulous modern boutique hotel. The location is excellent as other reviewers have noted. Our hotel room was more like a 2 star than a 4 star. We had a comfortable bed but the furniture was old and shabby. However,... More

We spent 2 days in Braga. The hotel is located in the very heart of the city and a parking place (free of charge) is right in front of the hotel. You can "forget" your car and discover the city on foot. The staff is super friendly, helpful and ready to offer any tip for restaurants, sightseens, etc. The breakfast... More

As previous posters have said, it can be very tricky to find the hotel even with sat nav because of the system of one way streets. However the effort is worth it in the end because this is a very nice hotel. We managed to park very close to the hotel but yes it took us some time actually reaching... More

Very hard to find even with GPS trying to send us wrong way down one way street. The other reviews of this hotel mare accurate. Clean, friendly and comfortable. Parking is a bit painful. But it's not too far away and is undercover in shopping mall car park. Restaurant at the hotel was good.
