Wonderfully situated hotel, on top of a hill overlooking Braga, right next to the beautiful Bom Jesus do Monte church and its magnificent Baroque stairway. There is (limited) free parking right in front of the building - you will get reimbursed for the 1 Euro you pay at the entrance to the parking lot a bit further down the hill.
The hotel is classy yet modern, with a minimalistic and well-kept interior. After a professional (yet somewhat lengthy) check-in by the receptionist, we entered our huge room. The bathroom area is integrated into it in a way that might make it a bit difficult for people seeking privacy, but for us it worked perfectly fine. The bed was large and comfy, the quiet surroundings made for a deep and undisturbed sleep (the church bells don’t ring during the night). We appreciated the chic furniture but needed some time to figure out how the many different light switches were connected to the actual lamps.
The only real downside was the breakfast: served in a not too inviting room, with unwelcoming staff not caring about COVID rules (allowing some guests to help themselves at the buffet without using the mandatory gloves). The selection of food was also mediocre at best, the quality even worse. A bummer in a hotel which we would otherwise wholeheartedly recommend.
