“Super value at moderate prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Super reception service, spacious corridors and rooms, good bath rooms, good sound insolation, excellent breakfast varieties, free underground video protected garage ( a few steps away). Just a few minutes walk away from the fascinating old town district. That´s where you should enjoy food and drinks, don´t count on the hotel bar for much choice and service.

Good hotel , great location.All tourist attractions just five minutes walking.The hotel itself is gorgeous and well maintained.Splendid interior design, very stylish.The decoration of the corridors is fantastic.
I stayed in Guimaraes only for one night, but it was very easy walking around .The room was spacious, with a splendid view.Wi-fi in every room.The bathroom was just probably amongst the best you can find.The size was amazing, black and white decorated.
Excellent breakfast, including many different types of cakes, fresh fruits, juices.
Friendly staff, professional service.
They practice decent prices for the rooms.Highly recommended.

We missed the glass façade of the hotel as it look like any office building along the main road and the hotel name is not prominently displayed. We were charmed by the modern interior and the friendly receptionist. Our standard double room came with a king-sized bed and necessary furniture though a larger rack for a big suitcase or two smaller ones would have been better considering that there is alot of space in the room. We were bowled over by the black and white bathroom with all the necessary toilettries and towels like a top class 4-star hotel. Wifi works well, good breakfast and free parking are included in the 50 euros per night we paid. We couldn't ask for more.

The Villa Hotel is located on a wide, busy street within easy walking of the city's historical centre - now a World Heritage Site. I wasn't won over by the glassy exterior but the interior is modern and spacious, with marble floors and wood-finish walls around an open atrium. Our suite was priced at €100 a night, which we thought good value. (Ditto €85 euros for a conventional room with bathroom.)

The rooms are exceptionally large, with split bathrooms in the suites (washing facilities one side, toilet facilities the other). The bathrooms came with a range of toiletries and cotton dressing gowns. We were happy to find BBC World on the TV menu, the wifi signal in the room was strong (wifi, like hotel parking, is free) and the air conditioning is effective. There's a bit of traffic noise but this isn't a bother if the double-glazed windows are closed.

Prepare for some quaint English in the hotel brochure. We were surprised to find no pillows on our king-sized bed when we arrived and a list of prices for the use of different kinds of pillows. However, reception confirmed that the 4 pillows in a cupboard were free for us to use, and we found them perfectly comfortable. There's a charge for the use of room safes but not for the use of safety deposit boxes at reception.

Breakfast was good and the 24-hour reception was helpful. There's a handy restaurant - €30 for a super dinner for two - 50 metres down the road. We'd stay here again.

Very well located, within walking distance to the historical centre of Guimarães (5 m walk). Nice and modern design and decoration, good size rooms. Good breakfast, friendly staff, free wi-fi. Own free parking.

A friend of mine, that lives in Guimarães, recommended me to stay in this hotel during my stay there. I must confess, that I did well in accepting his advice. First of all, the positive impression that its modern design and simple lines transmits. Secondly the location: though not central, it is located about 5 minutes walk from the historical centre of Guimarães. Finally, for the quality of the service provided: nice breakfast, friendly staff, free internet in the room. I recommend it to everyone who wants to go to Guimarães.
