Location is good, like 2m from city center, room is spacious with comfortable beds and good views . Bathroom is nice, clean and modern. Free Wi-Fi, free parking, good breakfast with great views from the 11th floor. Price was OK, downside were the elevators, the hotel was packed with only one elevator working so you can imagine the chaos to... More

Stayed for one day to visit the medieval center of Guimaraes. The hotel was clean and the rooms were the expected from a typical 3 star hotel. Breakfast was average. The main advantages of this hotel were the convenient location, parking in the basement, the free wifi and helpful and guests oriented staff.

I stayed in Hotel FUndador Guimarães - 3 start - on September 15. The rooms are comfortable, very clean and modern. Wi fi connection is reasonably good. We arrive d around 10 pm and it was possible to have a light meal at upper floor bar - the service is very good!. I do recommend this hotel.

We stumbled upon Hotel Fundador late last night & what a pleasant surprise! Very friendly service, large clean rooms, close to town and excellent value - hard to fault (unless dated decor gets you down). €50 for a massive twin room (actually a queen + 2 singles) with parking & breakfast included. Oh, and WiFi in the room. Definitely worth... More

This hotel is only a few hundred meters from the train station so you can walk there. For the price its a good hotel. The breakfast room has the most fantastic views. The rooms are big and clean, maybe slightly dated still but nothing bad. Its close to walk into the main centre so quite central to everything. Free wifi... More

We booked this hotel for one night only but the bar at the top floor was a nice surprise for us. It has excellent panoramic view on the city. Location is also very convenient. The room was good and also with a view. Very good value for money.

With great height, the Hotel is rather intrusive on the local landscape but does provide wonderful views from the higher floors. Everything is generally fine here. Rooms were large, clean & everything worked. Plenty of hot water, internet super fast (with free voucher), bed was comfortable & small minibar. Downside - no room kettle, no room safe and no iron....

If book a high Floor above 6th floor you get a fantastic view over the city. The hotel has very large rooms, and covered parking included. Is a few minutes from the old town, a close in 100 m to the central arts and music auditorium. is a must in Guimaraes,

The Fundador is a ten minute walk from the city center-downhill into town, uphill back to the hotel. Our room was large, lots of room to stow luggage, good-sized bathroom. All very clean. The breakfast (included in the price) had good selection. There is on-site parking. Our room (eighth floor) had a wonderful view of the city. The hotel is... More
