We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while traveling from Porto to Figuera da Foz. The hotel has a very good location and is in walking distance from a bakery and supermarket. It is only a 10 min walk to the city center of Braga. Another very positive thing is that the hotel offers free parking just in front of the entrance.
We payed very little for this accommodation and we were aware that this would be like the sing on the hotel says 'low cost'. The rooms were small and did seem nicer on the pictures you can find on the website. There are a minimum of amenities. There was a hairdryer and some soap as towels so the basic things were certainly there. The bed was really the only thing that made our stay here less comfortable. It is not a very good bed and it sounds and feels like you are sleeping on some sort of plastic cover, which is not very nice. Further there were only 2 channels that you could watch on tv. Although we did not come to watch tv it would be nice to have some more channels available.
It would also be nice if the staff in the hotel had better language skills. This is certainly not the only hotel this is the case but it would be a very positive thing if staff spoke better english for international guests.
To resume a practical, low cost nog fuss hotel.
