We stayed for one night on our way from Portimao to Santander to catch the Brittany Ferry home after 5weeks away. We are frequent users of Pousada`s and Parador`s on our way back and forth, but this was our first time here. It wont be our last though... We were attracted by its wonderful setting, the towns historical connection to... More

Lovely hotel in beautiful surroundings, beautiful view over Braganca and only a short walk (15 minutes) from the center. The hotel has a nice pool area. Try also the restaurant - lovely Portugisk food with a modern touch - great.

The building is a modern one bit a typical pousada but it lacks maintenance. The noise of the elevator can be listen in all the hotel. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms are clean and good size. The view to the castle and the city is very nice. Good parking. Friendly staff.

We stayed 2 nights in this Pousada and having spent the previous nights in a palace and 2 converted monasteries our initial impression was a little disappointing - it is a relatively modern building in the heart of Braganza. However our initial impression was quickly proved wrong. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with quite amazing views of the old... More

The hotel has a great view on the castle and that is a big treat. Nice to look out your room, great setting for dinner. The rooms are big, but the overall feel is very much from the time the hotel was build, namely 1959. But the air conditioning was functioning well. The biggest treat was the restaurant for dinner....

We stayed for one night. The hotel is relatively easy to find and has a great view of the castle from the public areas and also from our balcony/room. The public areas are nicely kept and very traditional. Our room was really big, had great air conditioning, a large bathroom and large balcony. The view was stunning. There is an... More

We were given a warm welcome at the hotel and had a room with balcony overlooking the castle. The view was stunning! It is worth staying here just for the food! We chose the set menu at €32:50 and were amazed at the quality and quantity of the dishes put before us! Haute cuisine at its best. The price also... More

Old building not updated. Too expensive for the offer. Big rooms but too old fashion. Large social areas with some (bad) repairs going on. Smell not good. Very expensive for the region as well as for the offer in the area.

The best qualities of this hotel aren't immediately apparent when you arrive but when we were shown to our enormous room and the curtains were drawn back for us to reveal the amazing view of the castle from our balcony I began to suspect that this might be a very special place to stay. From greeting to goodbye, the staff... More
