Located along the extensive centenarian oaks avenue, between the Shrine of Santa Maria Madalena and the Chapel of Santa Marta de Leão, place of ancient religious pilgrimage, the Hotel was built on the ruins of the Franciscan Convent of Santa Maria Madalena do Monte, built in the late eighteenth century ordered by Dom Miguel. This Convent was used in the past for the organization of important Events and to accommodate those who seek the perfect place to rest and ill from respiratory diseases, due to the fresh and pure air and the favorable microclimate. The remaining parts of the old Convent are still visible today inside the Hotel, not only by its decoration, with almost museological display of religious icons and through the usage of stone walls and indoor gardens, but also for the well preserved and beautiful Chapel of Santo António da Paz. Strategically located at 40km from Porto and at 5 minutes from the historic center of Braga and Shrines of Sameiro and Bom Jesus, we invite you

We were a party of twelve and booked six rooms for one night as we flew from UK to Portugal for a funeral. On arrival found reception staff to be rude and not welcoming or helpful. Completely ignored and they were only concerned to take our passport details and payment in advance. The rooms were basic with only sheets on the bed, no blankets. Carpets to rooms were stained and all rooms were dated and had an unclean smell. View from some of the rooms were on to an abandoned tennis court or on to a filthy outdoor swimming pool. TV remote did not work, when complained to reception I was told to find a switch at the back of the tv to switch on and then I could use the remote to change channels. Bathroom floor was sticky and killed two flees crawling on my leg. This hotel is rated as a 4**** but it does not even deserve 1*. Please avoid at all costs, the worst hotel I have ever experienced.

I actually have no words for what I experienced here. A 4 Star Hotel, Spa and Health Hotel suppose to be one of the best hotels in Braga in this. I usually do write positive reviews but this was simply shocking and disgraceful.

Dear Management of the hotel, please, use all the reviews to make this place nice for all the guests. Everything is written here. Only issues what cannot be solved by management is huge humidity level - water comes from mountains all around the hotel. But newertheless, we were there at november and we asked for simple electrical heater - we never got one. Then we asked for kettle - no. No hangers in the wardrobe, not very cleans sheets. Spa area was good for a resason that we were alone there, no other guests. Hammam is a disaster, sauna is more or less usable. However, this is a place with history. Churches around are just brilliant. Staff is nice. Management should try to manage to pay attention to all the comments, it does not cost millions to invent simple things what would make this place a gem!

Can I start with the cockroach in the bathroom at 3 a.m.? Or the intense smell of sewer at the pool area? When we arrived we noticed there as a towel that was stained, so we put in on the floor to be exchanged the next day by the cleaners. They picked it up, folded, and put it back as if nothing. The rooms are old, smelly, and the refrigerator made the loudeste noise making it impossible to sleep. Also I could hear everything in the next room. It looks like an abandoned hotel with no supervision , just standing there. Do not recommend, and will not come back ever.

If you can pay more money to stay somewhere else please do it. the hotel is outdated. you can hear people talking, taking a shower, music playing very loud at late night hours and the restaurant food is ok. I ordered a fish for my daughter for 7 euros somehow the waiter clamied she didnt understand what i order and upgraded her food to a 35 euro fish. I ended up paying for it but next time i will make sure i pick a better place. The rooms are old and the walls are dirty. save yourself a headache.

4 star hotel but very dated. The bed had springs sticking into our backs. The linen was old and stained. The card to open the door was faulty and noone was interested in fixing it. All up very disappointing.

The 4* rating is a work of fiction, to be 4* requires certain standards to be met, there are only 3 people on duty at night - a chef, waiter, and receptionist, no manager, no night porter, no barman, the waiter who is the barman, waiter, maitre d', cocktail waiter ,and I assume room service waiter as well, is run ragged. I felt too guilty on the second night to ask for drinks and got my own from my van. The manager was never present. When I requested to see him at 10pm he was in his bed, in the morning (apparently) in town fetching 'something'. The staff were very nice and they were professional, even though they were clearly under extreme pressure. The shower head leaked, the pool area is literally a health hazard with large hole in the paving around the pool and loose tiles, breakfast is diabolical, considering the 4* rating and the prices of food in Portugal. This is a beautiful location and could be a jewel in the hills of Falperra, but is seemingly destined to be ruined by poor management. I will be writing to the Golden Tulip group regarding this place and the Hotel rating authority. There are better staffed cafes in the town centre and it is unreasonable and inexcusable to work staff like this and try to claim a 4*credential, without providing a full service, basically a clean truck stop. Please don't cut and paste the usual apologetic reply, it means nothing. I've already explained my reasons for not addressing this fully during my stay at the hotel.

Whilst the hotel is situated outside of Braga, it benefits from being on a wooded hilltop, providing refreshing breezes from what can be quite stifling heat in the summer. The swimming pools are large, clean and safe, without being too busy. There is even a large children's paddling pool for the smaller members of the family. The hotel benefits from thick cooling walls, reducing the day time heat of mid summer, whilst I'm sure insulating in the winter (not confirmed as I was there in July!) The hotel is very well located for trips to the city, the Sameiro Sanctuary, or to Guimaraes (an absolute gem of a city)

Stayed here one night ,,the one member of staff on check in helpful and friendly ,the room was comfortable ,clean and very modern,,,the hotel has a swimming pool and other facilities ,which I didn't get to use ,,the bar menu did not live up to expectations, ordered A typical portuguese bifana ,received 2 oz of meat in a baguette,,,the staff were unattainable most of the time except for the check in guy who was the only one interested in working,a coach load of people arrived later on during the evening so maybe all HANDS were on deck for them ,,,breakfast and check out went smoothly,,,annoyed some people by starting my bike up ,and letting it run to warm up ,,tried to explain that I couldn't hear them due to the noise,,,,it's a historical place ,nice location,would return , With bike,,

We had the opportunity of staying at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Braga on September, 2017. This hotel is pleasantly located on a hill overlooking the city, approximately 15 minutes away from downtown. The beauty and serenity of the surrounding area, the starry nights, the friendly and efficient staff and good food, made our stay truly memorable. We would be delighted to choose this hotel again.
