“Good location, Ibis quality for the rest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

Probably the best quality/price ratio you can get.
The staff was quite unpleasant on arrival. We were also surprised we had to pay 4.5€ everytime we entered their garage.
The location is great, less than 10 minutes away from the city historical center, but it was also a little noisy - exterior and from the adjacent rooms/corridor.
Breakfast was okay, but not really worth the price.

First time to Braga for my brother and I. Price at Ibis was great, but what a surprise. We had a room each , one of the biggest Ibis rooms I've stayed in, and I've stayed with them from London to Hong Kong and many in between. There was even a balcony. The big attraction was that the hotel was a short walk from the city centre and many of the attractions . We didnt know but it was the weekend of the Roman festival when we arrived, what a treat. The hotel staff was so helpful and kind , I can't thank them enough...The people of braga as well forgave my basic Portuguese and helped ...even one lady walked us to the bus stop to Bom Jesus...Not a lot of people may have Braga on the map when they visit Portugal, but do yourself a favor and put it on your list...and do stay at Ibis ...

Centrally located hotel with large, comfortable rooms. Great deal at 40 euros in the off-season. In my experience the staff at no-frills hotels are often disinterested and unhelpful but the staff at this Ibis were friendly and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.

The Ibis Hotel, Braga, is a mid-range, no frills, but comfortable and serviceable establishment. It is particularly well-placed, just off the main square and within very short walking distance of tony shops, as well as the city's major historical and cultural sights, and excellent restaurants. For 51 Euros we got the basics--comfortable and quiet room with a good bed, tv with a few English channels, a small balcony, usable bathroom, and excellent service from the front desk personnel. We also paid an additional 6 Euros for on-site parking. The only shortcoming was the absence of free wi-fi in the room. It was available in the lobby, which also had a computer for guest use. If you want to save money and stay in the best location in Braga, the Ibis Hotel is a great option.
