    The Bedrooms, hotel staff and location are great. Really easy to book a Taxi using the automated system in reception. The longest we waited was 2 or 3 mins.

    Location is humdrum, but you can easily walk to the historic part of Braga. Parking is extra, and so is breakfast. Modern business hotel, not appealing for tourism - but clean, efficient, and very friendly reception. No help offered with bags, but there are trolleys and elevators so no big deal.

    Comfortable modern hotel with more of a business than tourist feel. Location is rather nondescript and a bit depressing. But you can walk to the pedestrian precinct and historic part of Braga, which is very nice. Casa da Se is an excellent local restaurant, where we had perhaps the nicest meal of our 2 weeks in Portugal.

    My friend and I spent one night at this hotel in August, during our trip through Northern Portugal, and we were really pleased with the quality of the services provided. The hotel is very conveniently located, few minutes from down town Braga, its rooms are modern and spotless clean, with nice bathroom amenities (and we loved the shower there!) and all the confort you would expect from a four-star hotel. What is also very convenient is the parking, underground, with easy access in front of the hotel. Good breakfast too. Highly recommended, excellent value for money.
