    Atmosphere, location, ac worked well. Recommended.

    A bit hard to find on arrival. (Location turned out to be great after learning the city.) Slippery/dangerous plastic mat in shower.

    Walking distance to town. Our room looked over the square. Friendly staff spoke very good English, very helpful.

    Free parking was first come first served and cars blocking others in, if you went out you lost your place. Bed wasn't comfortable and pillows hard. We had an early start on leaving so disappointed to find no hot water to make tea.

    Clean, quiet hotel. Personel was helpful. Breakfast was simple but good (fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, cheese, meat, juice etc). Coffee was so-so. Good location in the middle of Braga. Rooms were simple but clean. Free, quick WIFI. I would go there again!

    Actually nothing.

    We had a large room overlooking a square. All the staff were charming and helpful. The location is very close to the main sights. However ...

    Despite having satnav we had great difficulty finding the hotel. Eventually we were helped out by a young couple who came in the car with us. Perhaps it was because we were their on the weekend of their big religious festival - an amazing sight !

    We booked and prepaid over the internet for a twin room and breakfast for 3 nights. Arrived at the train station and caught a taxi to the hotel Dona Sofia. The taxi could pull up in front of the hotel. A very efficient informative check in and we were allocated room 311. There is a lift servicing all floors, and very good English is spoken. A big thank you to Manuela for her helpful attitude in printing our onward train tickets, and the bus timetable and directions to Bom Jesus do Monte. All done with a smile. Our room overlooks the square. It's a spacious room, with everything in excellent working order. TV, efficient A/C system, mini bar and comfortable, if a little firm, beds. There is plenty of room for 2 people and their luggage,which is not always the case. The ensuite was larger by Portuguese standards with good water pressure for the shower over the bath. Minimal toiletries, but really I think most people prefer their own. Both windows in the ensuite and room are openable, which we like. Bottled water is not complementary. Wifi is free and fast. Breakfast is the basic continental type, laid out buffet style. There is cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit like apples and oranges, smoked meats and cheese, bread, rolls and some sweeter croissants. Cordial like orange juice. Jams and honey and butter in little packs on the tables. Tea and coffee as well, but not good quality as urns are used. The food is regularly replenished. The breakfast though is the low point in an otherwise excellent hotel. The location is excellent for exploring this vibrant city which is easily done on foot. Except Jesus Do Monte, which is accessible by local bus from the stop along Avenida da Liberade, so not far from that bus stop either. We think Hotel Dona Sofia represents good value and recommend it.

    The breakfast items, like juice being provided and not cordial and better tea and coffee would be appreciated

    Good location, sites are within walking distance. We were pleasantly surprised that there is an ongoing Roman festival which we enjoyed; it was nice that we just walked to and from the hotel. There are only a few parking spots in front of the hotel but there is a public parking garage close by. Breakfast was good, just enough variety.

    the location central to the historical, allowed us to come and go, to refresh ourselves. The atmosphere was relaxing, with a comfortable feel to it.

    Merely the minor point that the bathroom was cold, but then it was February, and we did not have the heat on for long

    Perfect location in a quiet area, in the very center of the city. Comfortable, large and quiet bedroom. The staff was ever so helpful and was happy to answer my many questions about Braga. Excellent value for money. Strongly recommended!
