It´s a cheap option in Braga and the location I must admit are great! But besides that, everything else is "poor"!

I stayed in this hotel several times, during the last years, becasue my company policy. So I met the hotel before and after the major refurbishments. I must admit that the refurbishment brought some significant improvements, but didn´t resolved everything.

The staff, with some exceptions, but need to be nicer and learn how to smile and make the guests to feel welcomed. Mainly in the breakfast room and bar.

The car park is terrible, small and tight, with just few parking spaces. In the area all the alternatives must be paid.

The breakfast are poor, offering a very limited selection.

The rooms are very small with dated decoration. I know we are talking about Ibis, but could be better.

Finaly I was able to convince my company to book a different hotel, far from the city center, but free car park with a lot of spaces, friendly staff and great rooms. I did not return to this ibis.

Room Tip: avoid rooms facing the entrance street, too noisy.

The hotel has a great location. It's only a few minutes on foot to the city center and also to the intercity bus station, where you can take the bus for Porto Airport. Our room was of ok size, quite clean and comfortable. I'd definitely recommend Ibis Braga to those who seek a budget place to stay.

As with all Ibis hotels we have stayed in, our hotel room was small, no-frills and very clean. It had new clean white bed linen and a comfortable bed. Free wifi in the room was also provided. We were very happy with our stay and pleased to find that it had been renovated since the tripadvisor pictures shown from 2007.

It is located very close to the old town and inter-city bus station and about 1km from the train station.

Not only is this Ibis steps from the old town but the room was large and very quiet. By the time we came to Braga we were tired of "charming", old hotels with hard beds, tiny bathrooms and barely functioning plumbing. This Ibis was a welcome change and we could walk to several wonderful bakeries for a great breakfast. Plus they have underground parking for 6 Euros/night! I would highly recommend it.

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at the Ibis Braga Centro at the end of April. We chose this hotel based on Tripadvisor recommendations and were not disappointed. This is a budget hotel, and quite compact - small lobby, elevators, hallways, but perfect for us as we were visiting Braga for the sightseeing. Our room was small but with a very nice balcony overlooking the street, a comfortable bed and nice bathroom. The front desk staff were positively charming with a far better command of English than mine of Portuguese. The hotel is located about three blocks from the historic center of Braga. We did not eat at the hotel as there are numerous cafes and restaurants within easy walking. We give it a top rating in all categories as a budget hotel. Of the three budget hotels at which we stayed in Portugal, this was the nicest.

When you stay at an Ibis you know you'll get clean, functional rooms. In Portugal they tend to be a bit better than in some other countries in my experience (UK, France, Germany, Austria). This hotel in Braga is hard to find if you don't know the city, due to the confusing street system. The location is quite close to the main attractions, although there is an ugly overgrown vacant lot almost opposite. The bed was very comfortable, but there was a noise of heating or some sort of machinery coming from the corridor all night. The heating actually in the room was noisy and couldn't be kept on. There was a good range of TV channels for a hotel of this type. The view was not too bad on the opposite side of the hotel to the entrance. The breakfast, however, is not worth the money. There is a good, spacious cafe called Maria Bolacha in the concrete square outside. You'll probably need to use the hotel parking as the city centre location means there isn't much parking nearby, but it wasn't overpriced.
