    Everything was fine and according to what was expected.

    The room was very comfortable and with a great view of the nearby temple. The breakfast in the room was full of options and a great option!

    The place needs renovation to keep it in good shape, but as it was already mentioned in the previous comments it was not a surprise. Breakfast is ok, but could be a bit more quality products (e.g. fresh orange juice would be wonderful)

    The location is wonderful near nature and the Bom Jesus garden and statues just behind the window!

    • Leisure trip

    • Stayed 2 nights

    *Lots* of noise between rooms. Being upstairs from a crying baby and next to a noisy family was "awesome". Wi-Fi was so slow as to be useless. Room was too hot because the aircon would only heat up, not cool (even in the cool setting)—had to sleep with a window open. Sewage smell emanating from the bathroom, had to keep its door closed. Staff was very nice in person but wouldn't pick up the reception desk phone. Room was decently furnished but small.

    The location and facilities (breakfast, pool, and jacuzzi) were excellent. Staff was nice in person.

    The room was very cold, even though the heating was put on maximum. To get to the hotel you have to literally climb the mountain, by car or using the stairs. By car it’s aprox 5-6 km from the city center.

    Tranquility. In spring/summer the hotel surroundings are much nicer, but in winter we couldn’t enjoy it due to the rain and fog.

    hot tub not hot; was told could not have the special breakfast price because we prepaid for our night's stay; was not given a balcony room even though hotel was clearly not very busy that night

    comfortable bed and friendly staff; exceptional view from top of hill. it was a treat to get out early and see bom jesus grounds before everyone else arrives. Be aware that you do need to pay the euro to open the gate and go into the bom jesus ground area because that is where the hotel is: we were lost until we figured that out. You will not see the hotel sign if you arrive after dark.

    The room was a little disappointing. Quite dark, the beds were not super confortable and on the whole could have used some renovation to freshen it up.

    The pool, jacuzzi and terrace were really lovely. Also the location was wonderfully calm and quite unique - the hotel was right next to the famous Bom Jesus.

    See previous notes.

    The hotel was in a spectacular location with incredible views. The hotel however was tatty and tired. Our first room had no WIFI and a broken toilet seat. We were moved to another room with good WIFI but a cracked cistern and blocked sink. The rooms were basic. The advertised spa consisted of a nice pool but a Jacuzzi and steam room which were both non-functioning, a sundeck with wonderful views but broken chairs and decking.....it was generally neglected. The staff were pleasant. The breakfast was very good. I would not stay there again.

    This hotel is getting old and should have a renovation, even more because this is a 4 starts hotel. Even the furniture is very old. The food in the breakfast could have more variety. In terms of quality/value this is not the best option hotel.

    The hotel location is fantastic and the pool with view to the city is great.

    The decor was rather bland to us and although breakfast was advertised as 7:30 many dishes came out quite a bit later. Quite a way out of Braga so a taxi to station and buses.

    Beautiful grounds and view over the city of Braga. Pleasant walks in the park behind our hotel and a good sized swimming pool. Rooms clean and staff polite. Interesting old funicular.

    The receptionists are great and helped us a lot to sort out some serious car rental issues. The hotel's team is really client oriented and takes great care of their hosts. They were particularly kind with our baby. The location is great, within a wonderful park with a little lake. Calm place, perfect to relax and wander around, with an amazing view on Braga. 10 min by car from the center, the hotel is also close from another famous holy place called "Sameiro". The hotel has a warm pool (~30°) and jacuzzi (~37°) with a terrasse and panoramic view (free of charge, including towels!!!). Really good free wifi, efficient air conditioner, comfortable bed and nice bathroom. To sum up, best quality-price ratio hotel we've ever been! Perfect to discover North of Portugal and rest at the same time!

    There were some staff issues that caused the breakfast to be very sloppy one of the days - dirty tables, food and drinks missing, and so on... Looked like one of the staff members (the one responsible for the breakfast room) went MIA. Even without these issues (on the first day there) the breakfast wasn't all that great... The facilities need some better maintenance. Time has passed and I don't believe this hotel is worthy of the 4 stars it still has.

    The location is great. Our room had a great view directly to "Bom Jesus". The staff were mostly friendly.
