Rooms are large and well located right in the center of town. If only the breakfast was not so boring. Bread is not up to Portuguese quality and there are no eggs (other than cold hard boiled) at breakfast. They could so easily improve breakfast and then this would be a true 4 star hotel.

Lovely well-run hotel, centrally located. Easy to walk anywhere in Braga. Rooms dated, but very clean and quiet. Staff exceptionally professional and efficient. Charming view onto the square, with some parking. Wonderful breakfast! Highly recommended.
