During our many road trips through Portugal we had spent some time in Guimaraes in the past, but we never stayed overnight. This time we did and booked Hotel Mestre d'Avis after some internet searches for options and alternatives. It is located on a calm street walking distance to the historic city centre. We were very happy with our choice:... More

A small hotel near the historical Guimarães center. The hotel was clean and affordable. It seemed to have only two parking places (located on the street just outside the hotel), so you may want to reserve the place beforehand. There's no lift and the stairway had artwork, so you have to be a little careful when dragging your 55 kg... More

A very nice small boutique style hotel just outside the historic old town district of Guimaraes. All rooms are individually decorated and really quite quirky with all of the usual facilities one would expect. There is a small bar downstairs and a breakfast room. We had booked room only but in the end paid the 5 Euros pp extra for... More

Stayed for two nights in a top floor room with a balcony offering a view of the city. Location is very convenient-- 5-minute walk to Praca San Tiago and about 15-minute walk to the train station. Continental breakfast offered a variety of fresh options. Receptionist on check-in gave recommendations on good restaurants around the area. Another receptionist on check-out could... More

I stayed 7 nights in a single room to visit family in Guimaraes. The room was compact but perfectly comfortable, and great value. Staff are really friendly and helpful and as others have noted, the hotel has a very convenient location. Only one negative, voices from adjacent rooms can easily be heard.

I stayed in Mestre de Avis for two nights on one of the most crowded times, New Year's Eve. The hotel has a cosy and charming decoration and the rooms are very clean and spacious. The one I stayed in even had a lounge that made you feel "at home". The staff is incredibly friendly and super available. Definitely would... More

Excellent hotel, well located, very friendly staff, excellent room over street, quiet and clean. Wifi not so strong due to old, thick stone walls. Very room and comfy. Modern bathroom (door did not lock). Helpful staff - we had a car to park.

This hotel is located just a 5 minute walk from the historic center of Guimaraes. The staff are for the most part very friendly and obliging. Parking is difficult and because there is no lift, taking luggage from our car to the room on the 2nd floor was a little more demanding than I would have anticipated. Our upgraded "deluxe"... More
