“Internet in the bar/coffee area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We spent four nights here. I give it a big OK. Some of the staff were helpful, some were indifferent. We had a parking space on the street out front. Parking can be very difficult. I used my laptop in the coffee area every day. It was better than other hotels in Guimaraes that I have stayed at. But I might look around fo another next time. The big plus for this place was its location and I'm tired of the Ibis.

Modern decor, low prices, friendly and helpful staff. Very clean and really comfortable bed. Great location, easy walk to old city center, train station, and shopping mall. Internet works well and is inexpensive. Lobby bar is great but also quiet at night!

We don´t like big hotels , so we decided to book a room at Mestre de Avis .Despite being classified only 2 stars , we were impressed by the comfort of the rooms and the tasteful way the old building was decorated and transformed into a cosy and arty hotel . Located in the old centre of Guimaraes , the " cradle of Portugal " it is the ideal place to stay and visit this old town, European capital of culture in 2012 .
The staff are friendly and very helpful .

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor might be a problem for people with reduced mobility as there is no lift
