Having stayed there for two nights in February, along with my two children, there are a few things worth mentioning. The location is great, set in the main avenue of Braga, within walking distance to major attractions (Bom Jesus excluded). However, the rooms are somewhat small for a four star hotel: mind you, the beds are great, linens and overall... More

I had a one night stay here in January 2015. It was late when I got in but the restaurant was still open and thank goodness it was. It was excellent. The food was superb and the staff were equally impressive. Very friendly, very helpful and very welcoming. Same experience next morning for breakfast. The room was modern, clean and... More

We arrived in Braga in pouring rain, and our GPS wasn't very helpful. I finally had my husband double-park so I could see if we could check in a bit early. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The owner even had her son go with my husband to retrieve our car from the garage to park in... More

I ditto all the comments about location, restaurant and staff attentiveness. We were also fortunate to secure one of the three reserved Hotel parking places on the Plaza. We arrived after a somewhat stressful day having had a minor but unsolvable problem with our rent-a-car. We mentioned this to the receptionist as we were checking in. A while later, SHE... More

What a great hotel. It is right on the Plaza de Republica, a pedestrian only area, located in a 14th Century building. It is right in the middle of where you want to be in Braga. The hotel staff is very helpful and welcoming. Rooms are comfortable, with nice beds and linens and a good shower. If everything goes perfectly,... More

The hotel is really good. Great location, nice staff, gorgeus premises and an amazing breakfast! But I couldnt sleep at all...in the smallest bed I have ever seen :( Sorry guys, but a 80cm wide bed is not enough for an adult.

This hotel us in a great location, 2 mins walk from the centre of Braga, a 20 min walk from the station and even only 50 mins walk to the Bom Jesus (although it is a little hilly!). Alternatively, you can get the bus from 2 mins away! We had the cheapest room, but it was all that's needed, modern... More

This is a very nice hotel with a perfect location for exploring the major sights in Braga and right on the pedestrian walk and plaza along Avenida Central. An easy 15-20 minute walk to the train station (although if you’re coming from the train station it is all uphill – we opted for a taxi instead, 6 Euro). The room... More

An absolute treat, a boutique hotel with atmosphere and history combined with service and a great location in the old town. We loved this hotel which is in walking distance to all the old town this hotel was restful and stylish. The Mediterranean garden under the window and the church bells and distant rooster made this a unique experience. Quiet... More

The reception has 24 hour service and there is an elevator. Rooms are comfortable, the bathroom is big, and beds are good. TV could be bigger, but we where... More
