Amabilidad y desayuno.
Clean, quiet and confortable rooms, helpful staff, fantastic view of the city, close to the train station
Good hotel ,with breakfast included its value for money.
Though it right opposite to the railway station its quite a walk to the center of town.
location is great. from the top you have a view, and from the bar you have a round panoramic view. breakfast was not bad. room was quite spacious. staff very friendly.
the windows were quite old so in cold weather there is some draft.
Service, Breakfast, Eleven Bar on the top floor! Everything and the end.
Great views over the town, very professional helpful staff, secure basement car parking. Although the hotel is a decent walk from the town centre, the walk does take you through some interesting areas that epitomise urban decay in Portugal. Some would call this confronting or seedy but we found it very educational and it gave us the full picture rather than the rosy glow of the tourist veneer. Other than that, the hotel represented good value and was a comfortable place to rest our worn out feet.
The braggadocio in the big black Audi who thought that parking his car across the entry to the basement lift was his god given right.
Very good relation quality/price Good location
improve the breakfest
They set up reservations for the 4 of us upon request. Very friendly
The location of the hotel, thervices provided and the readiness of the staff always to help, to give explanation how to find some place, what is interesting to be visited. I am very grateful to the staff for their perfect attitude to the visitors of the hotel. I shall be very happy if I have possibility to visit again the beautiful town Guimaraes and to stay in Hotel Fundador.
Location is very good
Excellent location, very good food, not expensive, very large and comfortable room and kind staffs
Quiet Average breakfast Nice views Close to train station
Very stuffy, smelly hotel, maybe due to air conditioning. Around the air conditioning vent the wall and ceiling were stained black. Dirty toilet brush and large rip in linoleum on bathroomfloor.
- Very well localized: 3 minutes on foot from the rail station and less than 10 minutes on foot from the historic center; - The breakfast is good and is served at the highest floor of the building, with a fantastic view of the city; -Friendly and helpful staff. Thumbs up!
Location near station and conférence centre.
No bar or lounge area. No pool. Very utilitarian. Horrible grey bathroom.
Thoroughly enjoyed our time there!
Very nice view from the restaurant on the last floor, quite convenient location close to the train station.
Very basic cleanliness, the bathtub was quite rusty. The bed and the pillow were not comfortable. In the lower floors, both the corridors and the rooms, there is some smell of smoking. That is not the case for the upper floors. Quite noisy because of proximity to train station and to main road.
Curtains let light in, in the morning, even when fully drawn.
The free car park. The toilet. The quite and spacious room. The facilities.
The room was very large and had very big windows; for sure you've got a wonderful panorama over the old city when the weather is good enough.
Even at the end of April, it was very cold ( 12°C ) and rainy outside. Unfortunately, in the room was cold, too. We've turned the AC on in order to heat the room, but we've noticed that it became even colder. And the explanation we've got was that the AC had been set on summer time and can't be reset even if the weather didn't look like summer at all. So, we turned the AC off and put all the blankets on while sleeping. Meanwhile, in the reception hall, it was abnormally warm.
bar not being open till 7pm, so no where to get drinks or snacks if you opted to stay in hotel
Location, very near the historic center. Also, easy car parking on the surroundings.
The bathroom was not very clean on arrival. There were some hair residues on the floor.
Good location. Centra heating. great views from our 6th floor room. Free parking - easy to access. Good breakfast. Value for money. Would stay there again
Difficult to shut the bathroom door.
the location was very good, very close to the station and only a couple of minutes from the center
the air condition was too noisy
