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.
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.
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.
The room is very comfortable and the bathroom is well designed. The breakfast was great. Very friendly staff.
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.
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).
The rooms are amazing I thought the lights in the spa were too bright.
Amenities Weak internet in the room
It is all about the staff. Sandra made the difference, she was great with the kids, we had over 15 kids under the age of 11 (soccer trip). She found an a local news article about our kids and sent the article to all the parents via email. For international visitors the staff can upgrade their English speaking skills
The prices for the parking and rooms was good, location is exellent The rooms should be renovated, air conditioning is poor, breakfast was too simle
well located, clean, quite a large room so comfortable
Just right. Excellent location. Very nice staff. Great, really great breakfast. I will definitely be back. Nothing. It was really fine.
location, confort nothing
Hotel, although in an ugly modern building, is very specious, rooms big, bright and comfortable. The situation is excellent, convenient for shopping, museums and restaurants. Hotel staff are efficient and pleasant. During our trip we stayed in all sorts of hotels, expensive and not and found this one particularly good for a relaxing evening/night after busy hours spent sightseeing with kids.
The limited staff were very helpfull I would rate the hotel 2-3 star and not 4 star. Disapointed because I was expecting more.
the location to downtown Braga, the staff. swiming pool should stay open longer.
The pool area was very nice it is a big hotel and therefore not so personal service
This hotel fairly well located, excellent staff we felt we were in 5 Star hotel.
Great location for seeing Braga. Would have liked tea / coffee facilities in the room.
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.
Friendly staff, excellent location.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 !
the location of the hotel for the view over braga loading and unloading area for the customers (incline )
Very nice and interesting place
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 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
Poor room service. Very very tired old furnishings.
The staff were very helpful The area surrounding the hotel was restful and scenic
Old world, good views. Associated with other hotels which are only 200 metres away and which have better/modern facilities (food, spa, bar etc)
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.
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.
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.
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.
Everything was just perfect
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.
Wonderful views, excellent staff, great location. All in all an excellent hotel. Everyone in our party was impressed
The location is excellent.
Ambience and character of a converted convent Service in bar sporadic; breakfast solid but uninspired
Perfect location, right in the middle of old town, very quaint.
Location rooms are too small, breakfast not fully satisfactory
Every amenity is literally on the doorstep. Continental breakfast is a continental breakfast and I personally am generally well satisfied with them
Polite service, good size room. Convenient hotel close to the city centre.
Excellent location, good all round comfortable accommodation There is no car parking, though there is a garage 200m away
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.
Central --good safe car park --very friendly staff.excellent value No complaints
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.
close to the centre of Braga the shower broke, and the room was very very nosiey. barely slept all night.
Very nice hotel, exelent hotel. Very nice views also. It is a bit far away from the city center, but the taxi is about 8 EUR and the park is very quiet, so you can relax.
Every thing;specially the kindness and hospitality of the staff and the owners, great people Abosultly nothing
Staff were very helpful A bit dated and right on a junction of 2 rather noisy roads. Were only there one night and it was a cool evening and the roads got quieter at night ; but would not enjoy it (and could not properly enjoy balcony) in warm weather
Everything was more than excellent. A suggestion: isolate the walls.
We got a fabulous suite for a very affordable price. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The photo of the hotel that appears in the website do not correspond to the actual hotel.
Personal welcome/service from owners who were friendly and very obliging. Excellent 3* hotel
We had a health problem during our stay and hotel staff went to an extraordinary length to assist us in getting medical assistance on a Sunday plus the appropriate medication.
Very friendly staff
Very helpful staff, large rooms (can fit 2 extra beds for children), excellent breakfast, very good price. A bit outdated and not many facilities, but okay for a 3* hotel and compensated by the size of the rooms. The restaurant is not great, the others next to the hotel are a lot better.
the room was really good and the view amazing it was a little out of town but the taxis were quite cheap you just need to factor that with the excellent value the hotel offers
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, .
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 indoor pool. You must drive or take a taxi to the citycenter.
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 location of the hotel, the breakfast, the hotel staff.
The location, staff and breakfast Indoor Swimming pool was too cold in both days of our stay even after reporting it to the staff
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.
the cleaner was superb
Very convenient for the centre of Braga. Good sized room. Good Bathroom.
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 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.
Hotel receptionist was very helpful in dealing with our travel problmes due to the Portuguese general strike. Nothing
The staff were excellent and very friendly. Paintwork on the wall of room needed work.
Excelent cost/benefit relation. Not lux, but very good. Not much good on services.
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
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.
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
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
All staff was very helpful and nice. Room was clean and comfortable.
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.
Very helpful and friendly staff, clean comfortable room and bathroom. Close proximity to Minho University for conference attendance at affordable price.
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.
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.
attended a conference at the university campus gualtar lack of fridge in room
Breakfast choice was very limited.
Staff were very helpful and eager to help and acommodate guest preferences. A small fridge would be useful.
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.
The place interruption, on the cabo TV
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.
Nice locationon the mountain of Bom Jesus. Rooms were tidy and clean. Good variaty in breakfastbuffet.
Could use facilities at other hotels which were within walking distance. Staff very helpful & knowlegable of local area.
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.
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.
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.
Very friendly, informative and helpful staff Limited dining facilities
Food excellent Map needed to show location. Road access instructions only available from the motorway.
It was a nice experience overrall, the staff were excellent A phone call I made to another city in Portugal was a bit expensive
limited choice on menu
Good price. Far away from downtown (about 5 kilometers). Internet is very expensive!
Hotel staff were very helpful.
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.
Easy access for drivers. Hotel clean and comfortable. Non-smoking and smoking areas should be carefully kept apart.
It was a regular hotel for this grade.
We liked the courtesy of the staff, the internet fascility and our evening meal was excellent.
Value for money Good breakfast Location difficult if not traveling by car.
Very relaxing and the food was excelent
beautifully located at the top of "monte do sameiro". Inside swimming pool and jacuzzi were nice, very warm and pleasent during winter. All the stuff was very nice people. breakfast could be have more variety, it was just a regular one. The sauna was closed due to a malfunction being repaired.
Excellent service. Very friendly staff and a superb price/comfort relation.
Excellent location, easy parking
Beautiful location (especially if you are religious) 3 chapels in the hotel special. Very good parking. Nice free Spa. Internet not working, only 40 minutes after power blackout.Staff is friendly but not professional, most of them no languages and no knowledge of the systems-wifi + tv-..Big party on saturdaynight until approx 04.00 with open windows, so we did not get much sleep. Rooms are very small.
the room is very clean, the staff was very helpful it was very hard to find the hotel
