Basic Braga by AXIS
Ranked #14 of 25 Hotels in Braga
Reviewed 3 July 2012

The long corridor with lights which come on (or not) as you walk by was a bit off-putting but the room was a pleasant surprise: good size, nice and bright, clean. Wifi was only 2 euros for 24 hours but the connection was unreliable (possibly because I was on the 5th floor). Breakfast was VERY basic with such weak coffee I didn't bother after the first morning. There's a door from the lobby directly onto the platform for the trains to Lisbon.
The walk into town took around 10 minutes.

Modern, stylish hotel adjacent to train station. Bargain at 24euro and decent breakfast.

I booked this based on very good tripadvisor reviews but found the room (admittedly their cheapest and not a bad price) rather small and limited without internet included (1st place in Portugal apart from 1 pension that had no internet) - not as good as a couple of newish 2* hotels I had stayed at - maybe I had just done very well previously.

If you're looking for a no-frills hotel in Braga where one can have a good night sleep go no further. This is a place made for price conscious travelers who which to spend as little time as possible in the hotel.
The rooms are small and there is nothing except for a comfortable bed and a chair.
The toilet is cramped and the shower head is too small but good enough for its purpose.
Expect no sound proof rooms and the AC does not produce any cool air.
The rest of the premisses are dull and look like industrial design except for the lobby which looks modern and welcome.
Good location next to railway station and 5 m from the centre of town.

We stayed around Christmas and had no problems with staff, check-in/out, other guests or anything else. The room is small and the biggest con is that there is no closet space, but we managed fine. You have basic amenities and a clean, private room in a central location. This places sells on location and price, it's great if you are coming/leaving by train and the price is really the best you can find for such a clean and handy place. I wish all cities had one of these!

Room Tip: If you want a quieter room you should ACTUALLY ask for one that IS facing the station. There is a co...

It is very cheap, and well located. the Rooms are as simple as it can get, but you can get a good night sleep. This is a good concept, a cheap hotel where the rooms are kept to the minimum but well located.

Reception "Ikea style", but when u go upstairs... u feel like in hospital... grey sad corridors; small, grey, sad rooms... nothing against a "basic, clean, cheap hotel' concept.. but it is so easy also to put a little of fantasy and colours! Cheap and basic does not mean I've to feel a hospital customer instead of hotel customer. Breakfast less the average, wi-fi internet very fast but not free; reception staff very friendly. In general, the Basic Braga looks a " lost opportunity" to do something good with a good idea
