We spent two nights here whilst visiting the city of Braga. It has 6 parking spaces which is rare in central Braga. All the city centre attractions can be easily access from the hotel. Comfortable hotel, typical continental breakfast but awful coffee! Luckily we could get some decent coffee in many places in the city for not much more than... More

This is really good, has elevator, nice stairs but I would prefer elevator for our bags, after that, I would go elevator still and if case is out of order or something, we would use stairs :P Nice one! ;) We reserved this and we will be to sleep with your cute hotel!

This is a relatively small hotel, comfortable and very clean, located next to the Braga Cathedral. They only have six free parking spots but I was lucky to secure one (no reservations permitted). Nonetheless, they have a public parking like 500 meters from the hotel. They have a good buffet breakfast and the front desk staff is very helpful. It... More

If you want to be exactly in the middle of the town, this is the place to be! My room was nice, big and clean. The breakfast could be more variate but it was a good one. Overall i was very satisfied with this hotel and if i will return to Brague i will definitely book it one more time.

Lovely well-run hotel, centrally located. Easy to walk anywhere in Braga. Rooms dated, but very clean and quiet. Staff exceptionally professional and efficient. Charming view onto the square, with some parking. Wonderful breakfast! Highly recommended.

The room was very cute and bed comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful, especially Emanuelle. She gave us some history lessons, pointed us in the right direction and was so accommodating. The hotel was perfect location mid city and easy to find off main city square. Would go back in a heartbeat. Braga is so charming!

We visited Northern Portugal and made the Hotel Dona Sofia our home for a few nights, and it was wonderful! The staff treated us so well, gave us lots of information on places to go, maps, addresses of local restaurants to try and interesting tidbits of local information. They even gave up their own parking stalls so we could park!... More
