“No frills but ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

The hotel seems better from outside than it is inside. The location is very quiet and peaceful, right in the middle of Bom Jesus Park, in front of a lake, but some 15 min away by car to Braga's city centre. The room was ok, nothing fancy, needing some renovation, but spacious enough, clean and confortable. The price was very good (45€ for a double with breakfast).
Staff was ok, friendly and always ready for providing information but without the elegance and the standard that a real Concierge should have.

We booked this hotel online with no problems, but when we arrived (after having difficulty finding it!), we were informed by a paper on the door that it was closed and directed us to call a phone number. This directed us to Hotel do Templo, which I will write a review for later. This hotel could have just disabled the availability on booking.com if it's closed.

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.
