    Exceptional 10.0
    Best option in Braga
    Great option for Braga and of you want to go to the Geres area.
    Oliver, gb1 night business trip
    Very good 8.0
    Good overall, attention to detail needed
    Stayed here for a wedding, the hotel is lovely and service at the restaurant is top notch. Some small issues - booking a taxi via to hotel is a bit inefficient, and the body wash in my room was already used / had not been replaced. The pillows aren’t feather pillows which you’d expect from a 5* hotel. There was a lightbulb burned out above the bathroom sink. Otherwise everything was good.

    Modern hotel but lacking quality. Not very practical position.

    Good 6.0
    Good enough but not a 5-star hotel
    It was a pleasant stay but for sure it’s not a 5-star hotel. Clearly they tick the boxes to qualify for a 5-star hotel. It was disappointing that we were not welcomed with at least two bottles of water in the room. Also the bed was good but not 5-star. Usually proper 5-star hotels care about all details.

    Enjoyable stay
    Very beautiful and comfortable hotel. Very good breakfast, but the dinner was very disappointing, although was very expensive

    Solid 4 star class hotel
    In my opinion it’s a four star (not 5) hotel by international standards, or compared to other options in Porto. The dining options and facilities should be thought of in that context. With that being said, the executive suites are a decent value and provide a comfortable stay for business trips. Plenty of space to avoid feeling trapped in your room, which is important because the location is a bit far away from the old town center. No major complaints, but I think they should add another dining option.

    Excellent 5 star hotel
    The hotel is fantastic. Very modern and stylish. The room was huge, with a seating area. The bathroom is separated from the bedroom by a curtain which is unusual but wasn’t a problem, and there is a large bathtub and separate shower. We had the buffet dinner which was delicious and not overpriced. Highly recommended hotel.

    Great place to spend some time.
    This is an amazing hotel. Recommend it to all my friends!

    Awesome hotel but hard beds
    I love this hotel and have stayed many times. Why I like it the most is for the pools, gym and spa. When we come to Portugal my husband is from here and takes off a lot so I like to spend time in the spa and gym. Also a nice hike up the hill to Bom Jesus. Also a 25 minute walk to a great shopping mall. One block away to a restaurant street with very reasonable lunch deals. Only rates the room poorly due to the extremely hard, uncomfortable beds.
