The garage arrangement. Steps from elevator to garage were difficult. Hallways were too dark. Food- dinner and breakfast is very poor. It did not taste fresh and was probally not as only 3 other people ate there. I have stayed in 5 hotels in Portugal and Pedras eubas was the worst.
Room was clean and tidy and very close to the airport No, it was o.k.
The location next to Porto Airport makes it very practical for staying overnight in connection with a flight. The staff was not able to speak German or Spanish.
No outdoor signs great difficalty in actually finding the hotel, Especially arriving in the dark
big room no airport shuttle early morning
nice big room and within walking distance of the arrivals hall at the porto airport.
The room was very generously sized and very modern. Because of the large amount of marble and wood used, the room was cold at times. Some rugs or artwork would have made it more pleasant.
lovely and comfort
We took this hotel before an early morning flight departure. All I can say is we wish we turned up earlier. The hotel room was beuatiful and a great big spa directly beside the bed. Also came with an absolutely beautiful cot for our baby- one of the nicest I have ever seen.
The bathroom/bedroom was spacious
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).
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.
Amenities Weak internet in the room
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
No tea and coffee making in room
Lack of warm atmosphere
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.
the hotel was very clean and offered big rooms, good breakfast (where you could ask for Portuguese coffee)
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.
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
well located, clean, quite a large room so comfortable
The limited staff were very helpfull I would rate the hotel 2-3 star and not 4 star. Disapointed because I was expecting more.
location, confort nothing
Just right. Excellent location. Very nice staff. Great, really great breakfast. I will definitely be back. Nothing. It was really fine.
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 location to downtown Braga, the staff. swiming pool should stay open longer.
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
Non smoking room on a non smoking floor.
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 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.
On site parking available, a typical medium sized modern city hotel.
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 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
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...
nice room.interesting design. comfort and clean.staff exraordinary helpfull and polite.
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.
very nice hotel highly recommaned to any goal, either city trip or romance cann't realy think about anything wrong
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 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.
Great location in centro with access for travelers with cars. Excellent friendly and helpful staff.
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.
Clean, comfortable and pleasant surroundings Nothing
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 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 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.

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.
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.
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.
Friendly staff, excellent location.
Great location for seeing Braga. Would have liked tea / coffee facilities in the room.
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.
the magnificent setting and immaculate pousada
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 !
lovely cloister and pool. too large for my taste also, I was in the modern wing where rooms were not as attractive.
The widely-spaced layout of the different facility areas detracts from the ambience expected.
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.
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!!!!
Charming hotel. Hotel staff were decent as well as kind. Room furniture was enough and well renovated.
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
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.
Good location! Staff very helpful with car parking. Clean rooms but a little small.
Location and sighseeing
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.
Hotel was very central
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.
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.
large rooms, nice view from the breakfast floor, friendly staff, restaurants nearby
The room was big and clean. The hotel stuff was friendly.
Services was very good.
They had a great breakfast; nice firm beds; good lighting; near tramway; and nice to have a hair-dryer. Very quite hotel.
Nice friendly staff, clean and tidy hotel throughout. Limited parking with little chance of using the garage if you have a large car due to difficult access.
Its very good value for money. Good rooms with good price for a very good price
The staff was very helpful and friendly, the breakfast was very good and with great variety, the room was very good with enough space to move around, as was the bathroom. The only thing that "bothered" me, although its probably like that on most hotels, is the shower has a bit too low flow for my taste. The access to the garage is quite difficult for big vehicles, however I got a parking spot right at the front of the hotel in its reserved spots. Besides this two places to park, they also provide parking on a private parking lot around 50m from the hotel, however it closes at midnight. If you go during the weekends you have lots of places to park around the hotel, during the weekdays the problem are the parking meters (during the weekdays you have to pay from 8h to 20h). However, I stress that I didn't have any problems with parking.
Very handy for the airport when you have an early flight and free parking outside hotel which is a bonus. Only minutes from a metro station where there are frequent trains to central Porto. Extremely comfortable beds and good breakfast.
Close to the airport and to the metro station Very few restaurant in the area
The hotel is very cosy and the staff is friendly. No free internet service available in the room.
It's a good business hotel in a town near Porto with a friendly staff. There's an excellent connection to Porto (5 minutes walk from the hotel). Maia itself is just a suburb with only a few restaurants.
All staff in the reception and the bar spoke very good English and were most helpful. Were asked to put our car in the hotel garage which has very difficult access, narrow, curved and steep and caused damage to car on exit. Would normally have left car in the road outside the hotel but during our stay the road was being dug up and we had to move car. Staff were excellent in trying overcome the problem.
Beautiful location and wonderfully quiet. Staff nice and welcoming. Very romantic Bed creaked !
Wonderful position! Magnificent views. Like being in a fairytale setting. Comfortable room-good breakfast. An absolute "must see" place.
The hotel staff really does an effort to please the guests.
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.
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
Very nice and interesting place
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)
Good four star hotel, with beautiful views, especially from restaurants, and service at a very high level
good service at reception, nice room, quiet
friendly staff ,easy to find bit expensive bar and restaurant at hotel
especially if you are fond of having caviar (though not real one) + champagne for breakfast. Disappointing only that 2 out of 4 machines in the fitness room did not work.
The friendly and helpful staff. The bar and restaurant with the best food we have had for a long time and the terrace to sit or take drinks and meals. The views were outstanding. The peaceful and calm feel of the hotel, and its excellent situation.The private and secure parking in the garage.
location, view from window, cakes at breakfast lift
Room's facilities, the fact that I can hear the clock from a church near by every 15 mins (kind of romantic), the view over the mountains, the restaurant and terace, the lilis on the loby. It has no wireless internet connection free of charge in the rooms. In my opinion, the free of charge internet connection in the room (wired / wireless) should become a must for all the hotels (like the soap and the towels are).
Close proximity to the airport. Rapid check-in and private parking. Comfortable rooms, bar and nice restaurant. Good breakfast.
Teras view no free internet
