Amenities Weak internet in the room
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.
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).
Easy access to the town. Quality choice of breakfast including bacon & eggs. A bit on the "neuvo style" hence lacking character. Overpriced when compared with IBIS and others equally close. Small TV.
No tea and coffee making in room
very nice place to stay short walk to town nothing to dislike
Face towels available - a rarity in Portugal Hard to operate card for power in room; plug in bathroom basin faulty and basin trendy but inadequate; both bedside lights on a single switch; room dark with slit window; no second chair in twin room; Room not really 4 star standard;hard to find by car if unfamiliar with town.
Kindness and attention of staff.
In terms of value for money i would say that this was one of the best hotels i have stayed in, it was clean, comfortable and the staff very helpfull
the hotel was very clean and offered big rooms, good breakfast (where you could ask for Portuguese coffee)
Lack of warm atmosphere
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.
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 location to downtown Braga, the staff. swiming pool should stay open longer.
location, confort nothing
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.
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 prices for the parking and rooms was good, location is exellent The rooms should be renovated, air conditioning is poor, breakfast was too simle
This hotel fairly well located, excellent staff we felt we were in 5 Star hotel.
The pool area was very nice it is a big hotel and therefore not so personal service
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.
Great location for seeing Braga. Would have liked tea / coffee facilities in the room.
friendly staff - delicious food ´superb breakfast - enjoyed pianist at dinner. liked garden space. no. beautiful building. family atmosphere.
Excellent freindly service and value for money
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 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.
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.
Friendly staff, excellent location.
Good location! Staff very helpful with car parking. Clean rooms but a little small.
Great views from spacious room. Includes a plentiful breakfast and garage parking. Very good location to where explore the town. Next to a train station. Room a bit stark.
The room was big and clean. The hotel stuff was friendly.
large rooms, nice view from the breakfast floor, friendly staff, restaurants nearby
I liked the fact that the hotel was close to the centre of Guimarães and the price. The room was also comfortable and clean. Breakfast was ok. I did not appreciate the look of the building, I mean, it's an old building I know but it could be renovated.
The stuff was quite helpfull. There was a free parking in the hotel's garage. The building itself is an unattractive monster, and is situated near railway.
The location, the staff and the size of the room. It needed a little more of insulation from both the inside and outside noise and also we got a very loud AC device, impossible to use during the evening.
view was great , close to historical centre , nice large rooms it was very plain inside , and no free access to wireless , just an slow old computer in the lobby
Location and sighseeing
Hotel was very central
Rooms were spacious and very clean. Desk staff helpful and cheerful.The position of the hotel is perfect for exploring the area on foot. No it is very comfortable.
Great location in centro with access for travelers with cars. Excellent friendly and helpful staff.
Excellent hotel, friendly staff, great location and descent breakfast. Located 10min walking from train station and on the main square. Great for tourism or business. The Internet connection is unsecured and connection reliability was very bad from my room, breaking mainly during internet telephony. A colleague had good connection from his room though.
Clean, comfortable and pleasant surroundings Nothing
very nice hotel highly recommaned to any goal, either city trip or romance cann't realy think about anything wrong
Very helpful and friendly staff. Waiter at breakfast was fantastic. Room was large and comfortable and far exceeded my expectations for the price.
The hotel is very well located, it is possible to walk from the bus station until there, it is in the historical center. The staff are very friendly and give lots of suggestion about where to go, what to see and so on.
good location. pleasant, helpful staff. comfortable , spacious room. good breakfast! for a 4 star hotel they could have run to fresh , rather than instant coffee at breakfast! Entrance to hotel was not clear.
Great location and very warm welcome. Staff were most helpful with recommendations for places to dine and drink. Breakfast was excellent with several choices and served at table by a very friendly waiter.
nice room.interesting design. comfort and clean.staff exraordinary helpfull and polite.
It is very impressive place to give you all you need and what beyond your imagination. Breakfast with comfort and relax, hall with leisure and elegant music on the background, plus beautiful view from the window and enjoyable TVShows, make this four-star hotel where you want to be. It sites near the centro of the Vila Flor, which makes it easy for you to have a visit to this historical town Guimarães, the place where Portugal was born. The speed of Wi-Fi is somehow low, which was provided by Vodafone. What's more, the internet access will be out-of-date by 12hours after your first successful login. So you must get another one at the recepção at the 0th floor, although, that is free.
The hotel is on a good location to visit the old town of Guimaraes. Ask for a room to the old town side if you do not want to hear too much traffic noise and a railway line. Breakfast buffet was OK with a good choice. Everything was OK.
The hotel stuff were friendly and helping. The room was very comfortable.
everything really, and the big room with a big view of the town...
Non smoking room on a non smoking floor.
The hotel was near to the railway station which was good as we travelled by train from Porto. Check in was quick and the room we had was very good with a view of the city from the window. Did not use the spar or pool was was told by other friends who did use it that it was very good. Breakfast was good with a choice of hot or cold food. Would use the hotel again if in area.
The swimming pool could only be used in combination with a complete health program.
Guimaraes is a charming medieval town with many attractions, good restaurants, tea rooms etc. Hotel de G is ten minutes easy walk from the centre and is very clean and comfortable. The staff are very welcoming, great buffet breakfast and good restaurant for evening meals.
The hotel was excellent, on arrival the gentleman on reception was friendly, efficient & had our rooms ready for us. The barman Gabriel Almeida was always there for drink & food, nothing was ever too much for him. The rooms were great as was the bathroom. I would definately stay at this hotel again. Nothing
On site parking available, a typical medium sized modern city hotel.
The widely-spaced layout of the different facility areas detracts from the ambience expected.
Lovely place, wonderful tiles, beautiful gardens. It's a bit out dated and far from Guimaraes. Food at the restaurant could be better.
The pousada had beautiful stone walls, marble floors, wonderful great open halls filled with portraits and antiques, and a wonderful eating area. Families were welcome. The beds were totally inadequate; hard beds!!!!
the magnificent setting and immaculate pousada
Huge, comfortable, and well-appointed room in an old monastery. Great bathroom. Nice view over the city. Easy parking. Dinner was very ordinary and not a good value. The hotel is very hard to find (even with a GPS), although reasonably convenient to Guimaraes itself.
Beautiful old building and setting. Helpful and friendly staff. Dreadful food served for dinner - inedible , grey, overcooked and reheated 'roast duck' as main course was appalling. Would not eat there again and would be wary of other pousadas for food.
Charming hotel. Hotel staff were decent as well as kind. Room furniture was enough and well renovated.
lovely cloister and pool. too large for my taste also, I was in the modern wing where rooms were not as attractive.
Staff is very, very friendly. Location is overwhelming, beautiful, one in a kind. Because of short-stay visitors (most guests stay only one, two or three days) the hotel only comes to life after 16:00. Nice and quite though !
the location of the hotel for the view over braga loading and unloading area for the customers (incline )
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 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
The staff were very helpful The area surrounding the hotel was restful and scenic
Poor room service. Very very tired old furnishings.
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.
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 !
Everything was just perfect
Ambience and character of a converted convent Service in bar sporadic; breakfast solid but uninspired
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.
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.
Wonderful views, excellent staff, great location. All in all an excellent hotel. Everyone in our party was impressed
The location is excellent.
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.
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.
Location rooms are too small, breakfast not fully satisfactory
close to the centre of Braga the shower broke, and the room was very very nosiey. barely slept all night.
Central --good safe car park --very friendly staff.excellent value No complaints
Excellent location, good all round comfortable accommodation There is no car parking, though there is a garage 200m away
Perfect location, right in the middle of old town, very quaint.
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
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.
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.
