“Close to city, far from the crowd.”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I'm from Braga but I spent a night at this great hotel. From the design rooms with Bom Jesus sight to the great pool area, everything in this hotel is OK. The bar is very pleasant and the people friendly. However, the restaurant is not aligned with the rest of the hotel services: It serves just regular food, nothing to be fan of; this is the main reason for just my 4 stars rating and not 5.
I recommend the hotel for the general services and good quality rooms.

Room Tip: Ask with sights to Bom Jesus.

The hotel is very nice, modern, clean, and is located about 3 Km of downtown. Parking at the hotel is free. The breakfast is excellent and the hotel employees are extremelly kind. The only negative point is that the air conditioning was not working perfectly.

Great location and very nice personnel providing very good services. Room is with very nice modern minimalistic design, big enough and clean, big bath. The spa was really good. Very nice view from the window over the town. Close to the centre and to the University of Minho.

Everything was ok and I loved SPA - you can use swimming pools and different showers for free, and they are quite healing.
Room was big, clean and comfortable with huge windows.
Location is not so in the center, but it was not a problem.
You may have your relaxation there - for sure.

This hotel is impressive in some ways, of a high 4-star standard though not 5-star. There is lots of space, exemplary cleanliness, courteous staff and efficient service, and a first-rate breakfast. Outside it looks like an office block, and is located outside Braga beside a freeway, and is not convenient for anywhere except the nearby University. So what's curious? Well, the reception hall is huge and monumental and entirely clad in white, like a vast mausoleum, with some very strange seating. Perhaps the architect was persuaded against his better judgement to let loose an eccentric designer. Everything had an exploratory feel. I couldn't find the room numbers for a long time because they were on the floor of the corridor. Inside the bedroom I couldn't find the light switches because they were embedded within gleaming white panels flush with the furniture, like something out of a Kubrick film. And the faucet in the bathroom sink was something I have never in my whole life seen before, like a miniature Roman aqueduct where the water flows over the top through a square channel. Quite remarkable! The spirit of the Romans lives on in Braga...
