Basic Braga by AXIS
Ranked #15 of 25 Hotels in Braga
Reviewed 16 October 2012

If you are looking for somewhere cheap and cheeful to stay for a night or two this is your place. Simple and clean rooms with private shower. The hotel is directly behind the train station, 2 minutes walk and about ten minute (maximum) walk to the centre of Braga.

Although directly behind the train station you are not disturbed by trains passing.

Hotel is located not close to the bus station, so if you have a weighty baggage, it is better for you to take a taxi. But train station is very near (150 meters away), with bus stop for the line 2 to famous Bom Jesus monastery. You can reach easily Braga historical center too - only 10 minutes by walk.
The rooms are small but comfortable and clean. They are decorated in quasi "high-tech" style. The staff is friendly and supplies readily the guests with city map and info about how to get to places of interest by foot or by public transport.

We had been in the hotel for 5 days within youth in action programme on democracy.

The reception team was helpful and the lady who works in the reception was very polite.

The housekeeping service is also nice.I had stayed in the room for 2 persons and also I was

freezing cause of different blanket like a pique.That's why I used other blanket on next to

bed.I saw that they put a blanket next day.Lovely attitude.

They could improve their food menu maybe but it's enough.Thank you for nice service.

Room Tip: They may choose a room on road side.

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.

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.
