Occupying a hilltop overlooking the UNESCO-listed center of Guimarães, Fundador provides modern rooms with direct access to garage parking and free Wi-Fi, right by the town’s railway station.

Panoramic views of Guimarães can be admired from Fundador’s rooms with large windows. All rooms have wooden floors. Each is conveniently equipped with an LCD satellite TV, safe box and mini-bar. The bathrooms include a shower and all of our rooms are nonsmoking rooms.

The bar on the top-floor serves Portuguese wines and local spirits. Each morning it serves a buffet breakfast, which can also be delivered to the rooms. Traditional Minho food is served at several nearby restaurants.

The multilingual staff of the hotel can assist guests with planning trips into Hotel Fundador’s surroundings, such as to Guimarães Castle. The town center is a 10-minute walk from the hotel.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 8.8 for a two-person trip.
