This hotel, named after Roman term for Braga when it was capital of Galicia, occupies an old granite house. The suites are quite small, but well put and comfortable. Mine had a lot of natural light, always a plus. If weather allow, don't miss having breakfast on the patio. Also, try the bookstore next door. On the down side: very... More

The hotel is a lovely charming place in the center of town. Wonderful place to visit Braga from. Parking is a bit problematic, but the four free spots in front of the hotel can really help. The breakfast is absolutely legendary! I seriously considered staying longer because of the breakfast alone. The room (206) is somewhat bland and lacks a... More

On an extended Iberian tour with many different hotel stays, to find this individual, friendly, and comfortable hotel (even for only 1 night) was a delight. Comfortable beds, great location and very friendly and helpful staff complemented this boutique style hotel.

In a city of churches and pedestrian walks, this is an ideal location. Their reserved parking is convenient. Their restaurant is delicious. Enjoy the typical nottern Portugese cuisine. Try the fixd price lunch which can be included with your room reservation.

We stayed for one night in April. The hotel is friendly and beautifully located in the central area of Braga. Lovely room with a lovely big shower room. Outside garden to sit in and enjoy a glass of wine or two was delightful with a small water pool that I am sure will be just right for the hot summer.... More

We spent one night here. The hotel is perfectly located on the dee of the old city, on a pedestrianised area. Pall the main sights and shopping is within a few minutes' walk. The hotel building and gardens are beautiful. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet. We did not have dinner in the restaurant but we had drinks on... More

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
