We arrived at the Pousada in the afternoon after driving up from the Sierra Estrella. After checking in we were served lunch on the balcony with magnificent view of the old town. The rooms are very large and the bathroom too. We dined at the restaurant in the evening and got a very good meal with interesting dishes and flavors.... More

This is a modernish pousada set high above the beautiful city of Braganca and is designed so that all the rooms have a view out over the town. Built in the 1950s or '60s it still has considerable charm and architectural interest. Rooms were large and comfortable and each had a balcony. The staff were extremely helpful. On arrival I... More

We stayed one night for a stopover on the way to Spain. This is not the "classical" Pousada one expects, i.e. an historic restored building, like you find in other areas of Portugal, but it is a modern property located on the other side of the river than the old town. All rooms offer a nice view of the Citadela... More

Nicely situated, great view over the city, hi lighting the castle in thé night. The food is acceptable and some staff professional. I didn't saw many reflection of the price and the status of Pousadas in this one, showing already some decadent symptoms of a not to healthy situation. I will not stay there again.

The hotel is good. Interior ok - rooms ok - swimming pool ok - staff is very friendly, helpfull and professional. The breakfast is mediocre and the price of food and services is expensive. The view from the hotel rooms and restaurant is very nice. We enjoyed our stay!

This Pousada is a modern structure located outside of Braganca with a beautiful view of Old Braganca , the castle. The Pousada is on one hill and the old town across on another hill. Great view from the pools. The rooms are spacious and modern overlooking the pools. Recommendation, book the room in advance. In the summer it tends to... More

Do not be put off as you arrive. As an earlier TA entry stated, it does look like you’ve arrived at a private clinic or fancy boarding school. Actually you are about to enter a step back in time to the 1950’s early 60’s. There was a time when it would be “dated”, but now there is a certain charm.... More

I visited Braganca in September 2012. The location of Pousada was the most convenient - for exploring the old part of the city and visiting the lower part. The hotel offers enough parking places. However entering the hotel and especially the room was quite disappointing. The furniture is old and looks totally different than on photos.

If you enter the parkingspot of this pousada it gives you more the idea of a private clinic or a fancy boarding school. It did not match with what most pousada's look like. The interior looks like late 60's or early 70's. Although everything looks spic and span the design (according to my view) could do with a facelift. The... More
