Very nice and interesting place
The hotel staff really does an effort to please the guests.
We did not like it, because the airco did not work. So we left after one night
Old world, good views. Associated with other hotels which are only 200 metres away and which have better/modern facilities (food, spa, bar etc)
Wonderful position! Magnificent views. Like being in a fairytale setting. Comfortable room-good breakfast. An absolute "must see" place.
Beautiful location and wonderfully quiet. Staff nice and welcoming. Very romantic Bed creaked !
Poor room service. Very very tired old furnishings.
the location of the hotel for the view over braga loading and unloading area for the customers (incline )
Execellent location. The grounds are well kept and there is lots to see around the hotel. The history is preserved in the whole complex. We had a very pleasent stay. Like most of the hotels in portugal and spain- no Iron or Air conditioning.
The staff were very helpful The area surrounding the hotel was restful and scenic
Very friendly, informative and helpful staff Limited dining facilities
A great hotel in a lovely setting by Bom Jesus Sanctuary. Quiet and restful. Very comfortable facilities. Extremely well maintained. Use of the Spa in the nearby hotel is a great bonus. Will stay here again.
Only the transport tools, since the last elvator close arround 8:00 PM. If there will be other main of transport it will be very fine.
The hotel is outside of the city, so you need a car to get in and out. Nice park around it, nice views, staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast is not a big deal, your room may face to a noisy street so beware of that. The wifi may not work in your room also.
Could use facilities at other hotels which were within walking distance. Staff very helpful & knowlegable of local area.
Good Location, Fresh look Tv set could be bigger and better tv channels
Staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel is new and so everything looks great and clean. The breakfast could be a little bit better. Its localization could be better pointed in the roads.
Nice locationon the mountain of Bom Jesus. Rooms were tidy and clean. Good variaty in breakfastbuffet.
The place interruption, on the cabo TV
Quiet hotel, located right in the Bom Jesus Park. Breakfast (American) was good, with cereal, fruit, yogurt and 2 types of bread. Restaurants right outside the hotel much better than others we found downtown.
Good parking. Easy to reach from highway by car. Counter staff helpful with map and directions on request, tho initially not welcoming. The door to room had previously been jemmied open or something which meant door was not reattched well -hanging off its hinges and big gaps. Breakfast was terrible, minimal and cheap products. Breakfast staff surly, insisted we move to a different table after we'd settled in, then put reserved sign on table we'd been forced to vacate. Why not do this from the start? No cutlery/crockery on table we were moved to, had to get this ourselves from another table. Sheets on bed were short for tall people.
Food excellent Map needed to show location. Road access instructions only available from the motorway.
limited choice on menu
Good price. Far away from downtown (about 5 kilometers). Internet is very expensive!
Value for money Good breakfast Location difficult if not traveling by car.
It was a nice experience overrall, the staff were excellent A phone call I made to another city in Portugal was a bit expensive
Easy access for drivers. Hotel clean and comfortable. Non-smoking and smoking areas should be carefully kept apart.
Hotel staff were very helpful.
It was a regular hotel for this grade.
We liked the courtesy of the staff, the internet fascility and our evening meal was excellent.
Very nicely situated over the city of Braga.
The location was great although finding the hotel proved challenging. The triple room was very spacious and clean. The staff, especially at the front desk were very friendly. We booked this spa hotel in anticipation of enjoying a massage after finishing the Camino de Santiago. We made appointments for the evening we arrived but then discovered that there was no one available to provide a massage that evening. The spa desk then suggested we use the Jacuzzi instead. Unfortunately after purchasing swim caps we discovered the Jacuzzi wasn't working. A big disappointment to say the least. Fortunately the hotel refunded the cost of the swim caps. Really would have liked a massage though.
Everything was just perfect
The location is excellent.
Wonderful views, excellent staff, great location. All in all an excellent hotel. Everyone in our party was impressed
The breakfast was delightful. The hotel was fairly quiet. Our room was located in a corner and we could see right into the window next to ours so we had to keep our curtains drawn - I would have liked to enjoy the view. The elevators were intimidating with the "jumps" they made. GPS coordinates would have helped to find the hotel.
Ambience and character of a converted convent Service in bar sporadic; breakfast solid but uninspired
The hotel staff was very friendly, good breakfast. The hotel was an antique convent, which makes an interesting environment. We did not use all of the facilities, which are plenty, only the pool and jacuzzi. Rooms could be updated, the furniture and bathroom are not modern, our closet was huge and next to the desk, blocking one of the doors. The TV is on the desk which leaves very little space for the use of a laptop, for example. The tv could be tuned better, the image was out of focus in some channels, although it had SporTV. Be aware of the garage doors in the indoor parking, they can be very tricky. The pool wasn't warm enough (for me, but that can be just me); the jacuzzi's water were somewhat not very clear (a little greenish), not very inviting, although it worked fine.
Particularly the pleasant, friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were excellent, the food in the dining room very good, and the outdoor pool was great. The hotel was generally very clean. Slightly disappointed by the indoor pool – too warm and the water seemed rather cloudy.
The location is excellent, and the tennis and soccer fields made me wish I was there longer Unfortunately it was a bit noisy at night due to cars racing in the hotel's vicinity. Nothing they can do about that, though, I assume.
Polite service, good size room. Convenient hotel close to the city centre.
Every amenity is literally on the doorstep. Continental breakfast is a continental breakfast and I personally am generally well satisfied with them
Excellent location, good all round comfortable accommodation There is no car parking, though there is a garage 200m away
Location rooms are too small, breakfast not fully satisfactory
Good size room, nicer than other hotels I stayed in. Walls weren't dirty. Liked that the internet ended up being free to use, even though it said 3euro for a hour. Terrific location. Elevator.
Central --good safe car park --very friendly staff.excellent value No complaints
close to the centre of Braga the shower broke, and the room was very very nosiey. barely slept all night.
Perfect location, right in the middle of old town, very quaint.
I chose this hotel to stay during a conference. Most of the time, I would be out, and I was looking for a place with internet and breakfast, just to recover from day activities. I actually got more than that. Staff was very friendly and location allowed nice walks through the center of Braga. However, if you have a car (I did not), well, parking will be a problem.
The location of the Hotel, at Bom Jesus, and overlooking Braga,was excellent The room was a little tired, and the paint on the balcony was flaking. The food was not of an acceptable standard. A lack of fresh food both at dinner and breakfast.
Only the location Your waiters are all very rude. They make you feel very unwelcome. We did not like your Christmas Lunch Menu as we don't eat goats, boiled octopus etc and asked for a toasted sandwich with salad instead. They refused to serve us. We starved for Christmas and could not find an open restaurant anywhere. Your hotel ruined our entire Christmas Holiday which cost us a lot of money!
Fantastic location Hotel staff was sad.
Excellent views from the room and the restaurant. Good restaurant food. Location. My room was next to the service lift for the restaurant that ran all evening until 1:00 AM and started again at 6:50 AM. Had some troulbe communicating with some staff and a little difficulty with my restaurant booking
Beautiful location, very unusual and pleasant
location, splendid view from room, size and cleanliness of the room, no parking problems we didn't like the breakfast, in particular cheese and ham
Central location, service. Can be loud if you are in the front rooms.
The attention I deserved from the owners No complain
The staff were very helpful, friendly and eager to make our stay here enjoyable
Staff were very friendly and helpful and it was fantastic value for money.
The hotel is 10 minutes away from the town center. That's probably because the town is pretty small. The hotel only has a few parking spots in front but there's enough space in the street. The breakfast is good enough. The internet connection is pretty slow.
Staff and Breakfast
Extremely courteous and helpful staff; rooms as promised, very clean and located well enough-fifteen minutes walk to the city centre.
Very friendly staff!
Location is easy to find No hairdryer and continental breakfast (no buffet)
I found the friendliness and service provided by the receptionist excellant, her local knowledge and advice most usefull. I expected to find tea/coffee facilities in the room and a hairdryer would be very handy.
Everything was great. It's a very modern new hotel and the staff are exceptionally attentive. Slow elevators, in the morning you have to wait a few minutes.
The rooms are amazing I thought the lights in the spa were too bright.
The room is very comfortable and the bathroom is well designed. The breakfast was great. Very friendly staff.
English-speaking, friendly staff. Lovely interior design and furnishings. Super Spa. Easy parking. Chocolates and grapes in the room when we arrived were a lovely surprise! Nowhere in the bedroom for me to use my own hairdryer or straightener in the room and be close to a mirror ! The bedroom was too dark to work with my lap-top and documents. Breakfast did not include any fish options (smoked salmon etc).
Amenities Weak internet in the room
The location of the hotel and the cleanliness of the room Do not ask for fast pressing services is 50% more expensive, just go to the mall: braga parque yourself.
wonderful location with fabulous views over the city and countryside very difficult to find from inadequate directions - had to stop and ask at another hotel
Location, facilities, good restaurant within walkng distance.
The beauty of this excellent site and the beautifully Portuguese looking building! Since this site is visited by many people, parking during the day, for hotel guests, might become a problem in the future, .
the location of the hotel, the breakfast, the hotel staff.
the location is superb. i was expecting a kettle,tea, coffee, milk, sugar in one corner so i could make a nice cup of ......when i get up in the morning. also there is no exhaust in the bathroom....so i have to open the window/door everytime we have a poooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (sorry but it is true)
Good shared facilities with the adjoining hotel
The indoor pool. You must drive or take a taxi to the citycenter.
The location, staff and breakfast Indoor Swimming pool was too cold in both days of our stay even after reporting it to the staff
Great location, right next to main sq. , very cheap asweell, good breakfast
Good location No
location was excellen. Twin room had two large beds and a very large and modern bathrom. N/A
Central position; helpfulness of staff; language not a barrier
in the city center small room with bathroom "in the room"(separé), no common space, breakfast poor, impossible to reach by car
the cleaner was superb
Simple but clean and functional. A real deal for the price. Central location for business and tourism, comprehensive breakfast, secure parking. With one word: can be recommended
Had a good stay at hotel.
Excelent cost/benefit relation. Not lux, but very good. Not much good on services.
Very convenient for the centre of Braga. Good sized room. Good Bathroom.
Hotel receptionist was very helpful in dealing with our travel problmes due to the Portuguese general strike. Nothing
the location is excellent, next to the train station and few minutes off the gate of the old town, making it very convenient for the short stays. the room i had was spacious, well equipped. staff was excellent (preparing me early breakfast on the departure day) and speaking excellent English. all in all - excellent value for money
The staff were excellent and very friendly. Paintwork on the wall of room needed work.
The room was very large and the bed was also big and confortable. It's really near to the train station and the city center.
the room had a balcony the breakfast room was badly light and very dark and unwelcoming
The view from the window was nice, the bathroom was good, breakfast served very early. It was just across the train station, convenient if catching an early train. One of the twin beds felt like covered with polythene. The hotel needs to be updated, the carpet was smelling when we entered the room, but it was ok when the balcony was opened.
Very helpful and friendly staff, clean comfortable room and bathroom. Close proximity to Minho University for conference attendance at affordable price.
Staff were very helpful and eager to help and acommodate guest preferences. A small fridge would be useful.
Pleasant and konwledgeable staff. Good internet access. Easy Motorway access. Contray to the hotel description smoking is allowed, on individual room balconys. No kettle in room. No fridge in room a "minibar" is not necessary but a fridge is an essential item in the local climate. The hotel is actually located on the opposite side of the road as shown on the "location" map.
The staff were very helpful. The bathroomj was luxurious and the room was comfortable and extremely clean. This hotel is slightly out of Braga and the surrounding area had only a few places to eat in walking distance. This is important as there is no restaurant at the hotel.
All staff was very helpful and nice. Room was clean and comfortable.
attended a conference at the university campus gualtar lack of fridge in room
Comfortable, modern room and bath, convenient to the university and with a very friendly, helpful staff. Quiet neighborhood with an excellent local restaurant across the road. The accommodation was fairly basic, and the wood floors and thin walls made it too easy to hear the neighbors. The breakfast was rather sparse, and a bus or taxi is needed to get to either the city centre or the Bom Jesus parks.
Breakfast choice was very limited.
The people running the hotel are extremely kind. Great place, the hotel is very pretty and located in a very calm zone, although very near from the big cities: Braga and Guimarães. The room sizes vary, you can end up in a smaller room It should be extremely hard to locate the hotel without a GPS. The breakfast room can get chilly.
hotel only opened(or refurbished not sure which) 8 months ago so clean and fresh.quiet setting, friendly staff although language was a barrier, did not feel touristy, relaxing except room was too hot. Difficult to find! Although parts of the hotel are finished to a high standard, there are some parts still to be completed. The main one is air conditioning in rooms, the machine was insitu in our room but not functional. We were informed A/C would be bought next year as it would cost 10000 Euros to put in for the whole hotel. There was an attractive bar/socialising area around pool complete with brand new (still in packaging) computerised til but nothing to buy in that part of hotel(i.e. no food or drinks!) If completed, this will be a very pleasant small hotel. despite all this we still enjoyed our stay but wouldn't have wanted to spend more than 1 night there.
Extremely friendly staff, despite a language barrier; they helped me find a store close by to buy a swimsuit to take advantage of their pool. When the wireless didn't work, they let us use their own computer. Very helpful. Beautiful pool, billiards table, facilities. Rooms are clean. Wireless didn't work. Air conditioning didn't quite work, though it didn't get too hot while we were there.
The value for our money was top-notch for this hotel. The staff were terrific, and the breakfast in the dining room was wonderful. The location of the hotel facing onto a centreal square and park, was exceptional.
Friendly staff, excellent location.
Excellent freindly service and value for money
friendly staff - delicious food ´superb breakfast - enjoyed pianist at dinner. liked garden space. no. beautiful building. family atmosphere.

The restaurant was superb; both in terms of food and ambience Unfortunately - and obviously not their fault and mainly because this was a walled city - the parking was difficult and expensive.
Great location for seeing Braga. Would have liked tea / coffee facilities in the room.
A professionally run hotel in a historical building; tastefully converted. A friendly welcomed from all staff. The rooms are light comfortable, and warm - with a welcoming pack of fruit and mineral water on arrival. Well stocked mini bar. The location is very central and the restaurant is very good. Breakfast is fantastic, caters for all tastes and even offers soya milk! Intensive positive experience for a short stay. This is a minor point: The furniture fittings are due for a refurb soon; but the bathroom fittings and fixtures were very effective and stylish. The restaurant could offer more vegetarian options.
The hotel was very nice. It was clean and the hotel was located in the centre of Braga. They had a small but nice bar area and the restaurant was very nice with a small outdoor sitting area in the back. No parking. We had to park across the park and drag our luggage up three flights of stairs, across the park and into the hotel. This was a major pain in the butt. Also, there was no discounted rate at the parking garage. It cost us 21 euro to park there for little over a day.
Excellent location. Good rooom quality and decoration. Buffet breaksfast good (except coffee). Staff pleasant helpful and had good English. Room walls too thin leading to a lot of noise from other rooms hence poor rating for comfort. For me this is a serious issue that ruins an otherwise good hotel. Breakfast coffee poor.
We had a big room, but mind you, not all room in this hotel are the same size. Location of the hotel is good: walking distance to downtown.
This is a Residential but is a very good one. The room was clean with a good bed and bathroom. Parking is availbe in a nearby carpark that is FOC and has a private entrance to the hotel. Well kept. Close to the old town (easy walking distance). Previous reference mentions a fire and smoke from this entering the whole of the place. The room I was in was not affected. There is a wood burning fire in the foyer which is a nice feature. The decoration is a little old fashioned. I imagine this being a very good hotel some time in the past.
The staff were very friendly and informative
very hospitable people and helpful
Clean rooms, comfortable. Friendly staff. Something hot at brewakfast would improve things eg eggs
The room was clean and spacious. Quiet location. WIFI is extra and fairly expensive
The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was fine. Unfortunately, there was street noise at night. The front of the hotel is near a beer-bar. While this may close at midnight, say, the drunks do not go home then but hang araound shouting, etc. one important point for me was that the hotel did offer a small discount to attendees of the conference I was at in braga, but could not honour this because booking was made through your site! So I lost a few euros over that.
Excellent location, wonderful combination of St-John's feast and World Cup Soccer; breakfast very good. Recommended.
We spent nearly a week at the hotel and found our stay very enjoyable. The staff were very helpful and eager to please
Helpful staff, calm atmosphere, nice art work on the walls. There's definitely a problem of noise isolation in the rooms; complicated internet access.
Nice hotel very close to the main squares and streets.
big room with an excellent view over the city the bathroom was quite primitive (but extremely clean), but most other hotels in Braga have design bathrooms
Eco-friendly The fact that don't present any vegan or even vegetarian options in the bar/restaurant, which means it's eco-friendly but not animal-friendly
