"This hotel is located to the side of the church at the famous religious sanctuary Bom Jesus de Monte. Balcony rooms have a pleasant view of the plaza and the city far below. The beds are comfortable and storage in an armoire is adequate, but the space is a bit tight. The shower is excellent with good pressure and the ability to choose your temperature. Serve-yourself reakfast is excellent with scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon; cold cuts & cheeses, a variety of bread and pastry, fruit, cereal, etc., and good capuccino. There is no restaurant here, but there is a very good one in a sister Hotel do Elevador across the plaza. The top of the mount is probably the most popular tourist site in Braga, but it is a bit isolated for evening activities. Sunset views from the plaza just outside the hotel are beautiful."
"4 stars? Don’t think so. It was a 2 nights stay, happy that wasn’t more than that. -first of all it is some fresh days and nights here, and the AC you can only put on cold air, and if you ask the reception they say that they can’t do nothing but if I want they can arrange a spare blanket... what?? -the mirror of my room the all 2 nights has the same dead butterfly even after the cleaning ladys had been here, and don’t look behind the TV. - speaking about the tv, the remote doesn’t work, and they didn’t arrange another one so you must control your tv like in the old days. -the phone sometimes they answer sometimes not at the reception, you have the number list that say to call 404 but actually you must call numb 9, so don’t call 404 nobody will answer. -there is no restaurant or some kind of snacks if you are hungry you must call some kind of delivery like uber eats - the bar there is nobody there. - the walls are very thin, you can listen people in other rooms going to the wc and there is a lot of noise and if you complain about nobody will do nothing. -breakfast is ok, but not enough variety for a 4stars hotel. There is a lot of wrong stuff there. I would give 1 or 2 stars, never a 4 stars hotel."
"Great location right by Bom Jesus itself. The room was fine, breakfast was good, we loved the heated pool and jacuzzi. The one thing we felt was odd was that on the 1st night we asked the receptionist to prepare us 2 glasses of Bailey's with ice from the bar in the corner of the guest lounge, which she did. 2nd evening there was a male receptionist and we made the same request. He claimed firstly that there was no bar (!) and secondly that he didn't know how to prepare a Bailey's. We found this quite strange. Otherwise a very positive experience at this hotel overall."
