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 4 star hotel is centrally situated at Jardim da Avenida Central. The restaurant, which serves the breakfast buffet, is at the ground floor, you can have lunch and dinner, too. 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

A small and very comfortable hotel. Free wifi. Excellent breakfast with natural orange juice. So tasty. Rooms are well furnished and hotel is on a large pedestrian section of a big avenue so there is no traffic noise. The building has been carefully modernised so that there is a feeling of old world charm coupled with first rate modern facilities.... More

Although not an extensive hotel, and not one you would pick for business, this is a charming building with a lot more history than a typical chain hotel. Situated in the main area of the town and close to restaurants and shopping (which admittedly is limited in Braga!), this hotel offered a completely European experience. I stayed during a conference... More

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 The rooms are very outdated, the linens fraying, the carpets grubby, the rooms smelly, shower curtain moldy.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
