    We were upset the restaurant was closed during our stay, we decided on this booking as it had a restaurant on site. Yes I appreciate we were staying out of season and I would never expect it to stay open for a few guests. We should have been advised of this when we booked. Wifi did not work in our room

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was quite large and comfortable, Would be a great place to stay in season when the restaurant and bar is open. We found the evenings long as there is nothing in the area open.

    Lack of light in the room photo shows just 1 bulb working. The plumbing and the drain smell. Lack of decent wifi. The bar was only open after 21:30 and was very smokey.

    Not much at all

    Great location near the Bom Jesus Sanctuarium. To get to Braga you have to take taxi (10 euro) or a bus. Fantastic view, stylish design. The option with a romantic stay meant champaigne, grapes, flowers and bathrobe. They have an imagination.

    Stayed here for 1 night on our way from Portugal to Spain. Staff excellent, lovely location with a bonus of a large balcony overlooking mountains. Parking wasn't easy as we arrived on a Sunday and the park was very busy, but managed to park at a local restaurant. Exceptional value for money.

    Great view from the rooms and breakfast terrace. Rooms were clean and in a somehow feudal style. Large breakfast buffet. We arrived rather late in the evening (after 10 pm), unfortunately all the restaurants in the vicinity already were closed, we just grabbed ham and cheese toasts in the bar next door.

    Bathroom could have been cleaner. Sheer curtains had visible mildew. Back deck was old, wood weathered and splintering. No coffee pot or kettle in room. No extra toiletries available as listed. Soaps supplied were low quality & packaged cheaply.

    Romantic package & breakfast service was excellent. Breakfast served in room and was nicely presented and excellent assortment. Tasty too. Location excellent. Staff helpful. Amazing view. Relatively quiet. Easy checking and out.

    Breakfast is rather limited and coffee not very good. But that was not important for us.

    The hotel has an exceptional location: although it is far from the centre of Braga, it is on a hill overlooking the entire valey. The rooms have nice terraces with wonderful views. It is very easy to get there by car. The cathedral of Bom Jesu is at 5 min walk through a beautiful park. The rooms are superclean. The best thing is the staff however: they are simply wonderful: very friendly, always smiling, willing to help, going the extra mile. We will really have very warm memories of them.

    Its hard when you stay 1 day to combine the check-in and sightseeing in the city. Except when you choose the hop on hop off bus (yellow buss) which also stops at the train station.

    The hotel is far away from the city-center of Braga but it has a perfect location for a vised to the bom jesus do monte church and the park behind it. But if you go there i would advise you to take bus 002 to bon jesus, from the train station or from the city center And than take the cable elevator to the top of the church platform. Bus Goes every half a hour. cabe train every 10 min. And then walk up the hill to the hotel. Or take bus 88 if you are in the city center. Goes directly to the street of the hotel but does not goes as frequently as bus 2. I slept there for one night with my girlfriend we had a nice time. The room had a stunning view. And there were a few restaurants around the hotel but no supermarket. Next to the hotel there was a bar that opens at 9. there you can drink some delicious cocktails. :D. It also was the only place to go out in bon jesus because I had not seen so much young people in that area. The hotel itself was a bit old and it looks and smells to a church. The room was good. And had a nice balcony I only missed a table. The hotel also offers a very good breakfast with different cakes and breads and a lot of variation. Photo of the view.
