This characteristic building in Guimarães city centre offers modern-style accommodation with free Internet access. Guest House Vimaranes is a 10-minute walk from Guimarães Castle and the train...

Situated in a 19th-century building within the lush Bom Jesus Natural Park and amongst romantic gardens, the recently renovated Hotel do Parque features a spa, a piano bar and modern rooms.
Score from 134 reviews Wonderful
Wonderfully restored 12th century monastery. Classy and tasteful throughout. Bedrooms are converted monks quarters so are not too large but very comfortable and well appointed. Apart from the beauty of the building, the gardens are absolutely fantastic. Staff are very helpful and friendly.
Breakfast was a little uninspired - juices from concentrates, poor selection of cereals, scrambled eggs and bacon not restocked. WiFi signal reaches the rooms but was impossible to connect to - probably just needed to be reset but nobody knew how to do it.
historical character of the biolding
Incredibly elegant hotel with palatial lounges, stunning historic features and magnificent gardens. You feel like you are walking through a stately home, beautifully restored. The breakfast choice was good and the staff friendly and helpful. Nothing stuffy at all.
The rooms need power-points on each side of the bed, not one on the far side of the large room.
The buildings are lovely and we stayed in the main older section. Our room was far to get to but the walk through was lovely as the building and halls are gorgeous. The room is small and quaint. It is more expensive than some in the country but the buildings around and the views are breathtaking. .Breakfast was excellent and nothing was missing. The gardens are lovely and worth a visit too.

We arrived end of day, about 6 PM as we were touring all day. We had booked our room 8 months in advance. We were told when we arrived and wanted to book for dinner that the dining room was full and there is nothing else around. We had looked forward to a meal and not having to drive as the Pousada is a little difficult to find - we had a GPS and were very happy of course. We were told that maybe by 8:30 there would be space - so we waited... Then it was clear that there would be no food for us and there was no offer for anything. It was the amazing waiter in the bar who offered us soup and a beef sandwich along with our wine and then suggested my husband get some dessert at the buffet. At least the waiter was considerate. Others did not seem to care. Surely, with a full house, there should be plans for meals..Too bad as it would have been a perfect stay like all other hotels we stayed in while visiting Portugal for 35 days.
The historic but comfortable atmosphere, the extraordinary friendly and srrvice minded staff, the beautiful position with the view over the city, the fairytale like gardens
The food in the restaurant was traditional but not as special as the pousada gives the impression....except for the impeccable and friendly waiters and delicious desserts - like everywhere in Portugal
Liked it all.
Diego and Antonio were awesome! They went out of their way to help us and make sure that we were comfortable. Hugo in the bar was also very helpful and provided great service! Do yourself a favor and explore this amazing hotel. It is absolutely beautiful and "takes you back in time"!
Great location, friendly staff, excellent restaurant, nice pool and gardens
Fabulous building - lovely lounge, dining room super. Pool area great and gardens very enjoyable.
Standard room very small 520. Bathroom needed updating. Disappointing when the rest if the building was so lovely.
Beautiful room and very Nice restaurant, bar and breakfastroom Friendly and polite staff Good food and service
The hotel was not easy to find, the way to get to the hotel was poorly indicated
Old monastery in a fabulous location a little bit outside of town. High quality of food and wine, notably the bar tender Eduardo was very attentive and helpful. In general staff was very supportive.
- location and the beautiful garden. Very quiet location - room was clean and included all you require for this class of hotel - good for one night, would not extend the stay
- breakfast choice is dull (instant coffee, limited choice of cheese etc.) in a chilly environment. Lots of room for improvement here to make breakfast an experience. - be ready to walk 20 minutes to town (and take a taxi on the way home)
Good choice if you want to experience something different - to dive in historical ambiance, feel the spirit of old Portuguese capital or just enjoy the fairy tale, interiors are impressive, the monastery as well.
Restaurant is nothing special. Better find something in town. We've been also the only persons below 70yo in this hotel.
Location. Old part of the hotel
New wing has a damp problem. The air in the room smelt terrible.
The Pousada is located in a really great location above the town and is a beautiful old monastery building with history dating back to the 12th century (and with several rebuilds). The day prior to arrival the Pousada emailed us some information on the Hotel, together with some city information and a map, including the GPS street address for our Sat Nav. Very helpful and a nice touch. The extensive gardens are really nice to wander around and there are numerous areas to sit and relax, including a courtyard adjacent to the bar. There are many rooms within the monastery that can also be explored. All in all a very nice place to stay although we were a little disappointed with the restaurant.
Our room (111) was located in the more modern wing; although the room was clean and comfortable, we didnt feel that it had the character or was in harmony with the old monastery and the rest of the building. We dined in the restaurant in the evening -we found it to be a rather dreary place with very creaky chairs. The restaurant menu was quite extensive - but also expensive. Euro 19.00 for 2 chicken drumsticks and rice with a watery sauce isn't good value and it certainly wasn't a memorable dish.
This historic pousada overlooking Guimaraes, the birthplace of Portugal, is a must stay for those in love with history, architecture, and gardens. Ask for a room on the uppermost floor, in the renovated monks cells, your choice of quiet garden views or panoramic valley views over the city. Make sure you make it all the way up to the top of the gardens to discover the mossey pool, and explore the grand rooms, cloisters, terrace, and logia. The church is run separately by the village, so is not always open. Great value.
Horrible re-constituted coffee and milk at breakfast from the Nescafe machine. Why fake coffee in a wonderful old place?
Nice place and good service. Correctly priced
remote from the town (long distance by foot)
Beautiful and well restored. Very good restaurant for traditional Portuguese food with a discrete modern touch. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Most of the rooms are in a side wing and of poor standard and Lack airing. Park could be fantastic but most of it is abandoned and unkept. Sorrounding area is a slum.
the building itself, beautiful old common rooms and the grounds
was given a room in the 'new' part of the building, which in fact was built in 1980s and had very bleak design. the whole point of staying in a monastery is to experience the historic 15th century building, instead I got a feeling of a very plain 3 star hotel... The breakfast was not good at all, terrible coffee!
I liked the building and the placement of the hotel.
The interior was sad and depressing. The food in the restaurant was not good.
THe Histoy bihind the building. The building is astonishing! The staff very very nice. The room is very clean. Breakfast with fresh and very good fruits. Nice cakes. Very good bread.
Noise on the ouiside, air conditioning?
A beautiful building with lovely gardens. Lovely breakfast, something for everybody incl. bacon and very delicious scrambled eggs!
Location, on top of a fairly steep hill and in not the most attractive area...not such a big problem if you drive down into the town. SATNAV doesn't really work for the address given. The hotel is aware of this, as apparently nearly everybody gets lost. Now is it just me...why don't they make mention of this on their website and spare their guests the inconvenience instead of just, "yes, everbody tells us this".... Room not very big, which we didn't mind to much, it was just so dark and gloomy. You wouldn't want to spend much time in there. A massive wardrobe is used to divide the room up a bit but it makes you feel quite claustrophobic.
beautiful hotel, beautiful pool
a fair walk from the center of town but therefore great views of Guimaraes. restaurant is pricey
Approach amazing, long drive of ancient trees to what resembled a Cathedral with wonderful gardens.Restaurant an event if a little expensive. walks in surrounding area wonderful. A great experience. Local town quaint with friendly people.
Every thing was great the staff were very helpfull
