Hotel do Lago
Ranked #16 of 25 Hotels in Braga
Reviewed 7 July 2012

This hotel is in an excellent position, being just 500 metres from Bom Jesus cathedral and in the Bom Jesus park. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. There is a spacious lounge on each floor. Free WiFi in public areas. The breakfast is a good continental. The hotel is very good value for money.

Very nice and modern hotel!
We had a wonderful stay in Braga, thanks to the helpful stuff (speaking nice spanish, by the way!) and to the nice hotel with the breakfast served every morning (a bit poor though, but acceptable!).
We didn't have the perfect weather all the weekend, but even though it was worth visiting. The main Bom Jesus Cathedral is beutiful!
The rooms were very clean (we got the nicest one on the 3d floor in the corner, it was half round and huge with a big bathroom!).
They don't have their own restaurant to have dinner, but there's another hotel near with a wonderful restaurant with spectacular views over the city! Try it out!
Location is not central at all, but there're like 10 min by car to get there.
They have a free parking area.
We've also tried the spa offered by another hotel (situated in the same area), but to be honest it was very poor! The turkish sauna was closed on reparation, the jacuzzi was with the cold water (!!!) and we basically could have used only the swimming pool, there're also 4 excercise machines in the gym. Maybe it wasn't a season, but the spa can't be called spa if it has only a small swimming pool...

Room Tip: the 3d floor ones have the best views over the mountains!

We spent a night here for our visit to Braga. We were most interested in the Bom Jesus Monte complex so looked for accommodation on the hill and not in downtown Braga and this was a great fit.
A simple, no-frills hotel at a GREAT price (less than 50Eu/room) in the park of Bom Jesus.
Rooms were very clean and spacious. Decor was simple. WiFi was available for free in the public areas with an option for paid WiFi in the rooms as well.
We went out for a night tour of downtown Braga (with the car) but spent most of our daytime on the mountain - a walking distance from the hotel.
Note that all other hotels on the mountain belong to the same chain.

We stayed for a weekend at this hotel in Bom Jesus, Braga and we had a great experience. Fantastic location, great value for money, good bedrooms and an excellent indoor pool(in a nearby hotel of the same group). Only down side was a little poor breakfast and no restaurant at the hotel. (There's a restaurant in other hotel but very expensive) Overall if you want to visit braga, this is an excellent option.

The only thing I have to point out is the temperature of the room... it was extremely hot, for me... for my partner, he loved it :)
The room had AC, and I turned it off, but even so the room kept hot (I would say 25ºC or more) .. I was too lazy to complain about this lol

This hotel is situated only a few minutes walk from the Bom Jesus sanctuary which sits on a hill outside Braga. The whole area is very peaceful although when we arrived at 6pm on a sunny Sunday chaos reigned with cars parked everywhere. However, as soon as the locals had gone home calm was restored for the rest of the week.
The hotel itself is modern with good facilities for guests although it does lack a restaurant (except for a good continental breakfast). For dinner, guests will be directed to a sister hotel, the Elevador (situated close-by) which has a well appointed restaurant with panoramic views over Braga. There they serve a 3 course dinner for 19 Euros. However, apart from a wonderful dessert table the food was nothing special. Just a short walk in the opposite direction from the Lago are several local restaurants which serve good food. The second one up the narrow road was particularly good and had English translations.
The rooms are basic but comfortable, clean and modern. The bath was very narrow so if you have a wide girth you might find it uncomfortable. One side of the hotel faces the mountain road which is not busy but is cobbled so if you want the window open at night (there is air conditioning) ask for a room on the entrance side. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Above all, for the price it was very good value.
