    Didn’t cause a problem but the room decor was a little outdated with the striking red carpet. As we visited in the warmer months, the walk back from the city centre felt far, though it may have only been a 10-15 minute walk.

    Receptionist was very welcoming and their breakfast buffet was well supplied. It’s a small thing to note but I really appreciated them making us coffee and providing our own individual jugs of warm milk during breakfast service. Air conditioning unit was a big plus also.

    Room was a bit small. Also the bathroom was a bit outdated.

    Great Location! The staff was super nice and accommodating. They were very knowledgeable and friendly. The beds were comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious,they serve you hot coffee with hot milk and bring it freshly made to your table. Also parking is available which is a big plus if you're driving through Portugal. Overall would definitely recommend this hotel. Great price.

    The room was a little smelly and some of the furniture and the bathroom could be a little updated so to upgrade the hotel to a 4* The internet was somewhat slow and the breakfast could serve some warm dishes, e.g. eggs, bacon, sausages...

    I love the place. The room was nice and with a great little balcony. The staff friendly. In general was great.

    - Extremely old rooms, especially the bathroom is very dated. It's functional, but the fluorescent lighting made me want to get out of there as soon as possible - Hygiene could be better, there was quite a bit of dust here and there - Extremely thin-walled! You might have some trouble if you're not a deep sleeper. - Breakfast was very minimal, only bread, cereal and a bit of fruit - We reserved a parking spot but it was unavailable most of the time. Fortunately the staff was able to fix this quite fast and we got a parking spot somewhere else

    - Great location - Very friendly staff - TV has many channels

    Breakfast without vegetables and hot dishes. Parking availability - if you're lucky and the place will be free. No parking during the day.

    Old building and stylish equipment. A pleasant terrace with a view of the city. Not far from the old town. A funny place with a third bed - as for Harry Potter :)

    Walls are thin so noise transfer from road and other rooms a little annoying at first but I slept ok.

    I liked the early 20th century style with polished wooden floors and shutters on windows. I had a river mouth view from my room which was a pleasant surprise.

    It would be problem to find the place from the train station, I need to ask people a few times to get there. My experience would be to have full address and correct name of the hotel just in case to show people or taxi driver.

    Hotel is quite centrally located to bus terminal (20 minutes away if you are not lost), well organized and nice setup of desk and closet. Room size is adequate for solo traveller and very clean, comfortable bed and good internet. Tourist attractions are also within 20 minutes walk, since it is a small town, you have to venture beyond the town's limit to Mosteiro de Tibaes and Bom Jesus.

    Good location, about 4-500 metres from the main square. Cheap parking in an underground car park 150 metres around the corner, with a direct doorway link to the back of the hotel. Offered a choice of rooms on arrival. Satellite TV had UK channels. Breakfast included in the price represented very good value.

    The parking was a bit tricky, but manageable. Failed to notice that it was going to cost extra, but that was our fault.

    We had a good 2-night day here. The rooms were clean, had all that we needed and everything worked!! The location is good - a short walk to get to the historic centre of Braga.

    For the price we paid it would be unfair to complain about anything. Didn't expect 5 stars, and would prefer it stayed as it is, i.e. good price/quality ratio.

    Hotel was drab and dingy with lots of browns and dark browns. I've paid the same for a lot better. Room was very tired looking and in desperate need of refurbishment. Colony of ants marching around in the bathroom and at the breakfast table. Room overlooked a patio type area so I had to keep the curtains drawn all the time. I was cold in the night, but thrre was no extra blanket provided, so I froze!

    Breakfast was nice (continental), though the orange juice was actually orange squash. Staff at reception were helpful and polite. Secure (underground) parking available - but at a cost.
