Måske verdens bedste beliggenhed!

De automatiske propper i håndvasken og i bidetet virkede ikke, ellers var der ingenting at klage over. Udsigten fra vinduet er simpelthen vidunderlig.

This hotel is in an amazing location with Bom Jesus cathedral a few meters away, as well as the steps, park, and all other good things to see in the area.

Magnifica ubicación

Posted Aug 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
Muy buen hotel. El servicio es como un *** español pero la ubicación y las vistas a la Iglesia compensan de largo. Buen desayuno y mal WiFi. El spa muy bien y gratuito. Llevad gorro de baño que es obligatorio y te cobran 5€... Repetiré.

lovely hotel and scenic area

Posted Oct 27, 2013
Pros: The people
Cons: The beds are very hard but the breakfast is nice.
This is a lovely hotel set in a scenic area. It's a bit far from town requiring a taxi but it's quiet and beautiful.

It's All About the View!

Posted Oct 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
If this hotel were located in the flats, you might rate it as upgraded Best Western. The rooms are clean and adequate. The lighting in the room and bathroom could be better. But that is not why you come. You come to be at the top of the mount. You come for the panoramic view of the Church, the city lights and the Garden and Steps. Be sure to ask for a room with a view before you get there and look at your room before you start opening your suitcases. The price for the room is very moderate when you consider the location. The view from our room was spectacular even though the room was just average. We didn't have a car but that did not stop us and it shouldn't stop you. Take a cab up, it is too much of a hassle to take a bus and then the funicular that doesn't run at all hours. But once you have dropped your suitcases at your room, you can easily take the funicular and the bus down to the town. Or you can get some fairly easy exercise and walk down the hill. Because we did not have a car, we chose to eat dinner at the only restaurant in the other hotel just steps from this one. For the two nights we ate there we had a fabulous view, very good food and good service. The experience is not inexpensive, high end moderate in price. (If you want to use the pool bring a cap for fe/male or you will have to purchase one for 5 E)

Outstanding setting for a relaxing break

Posted Sep 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel was everything I had hoped for: somewhere to relax and swim, and accessible from a nice town without a car. The rooms were exactly as portrayed online: large and comfortable with french windows opening onto a tiny balcony, overlooking the church, gardens and hills in the distance. The pool was nearly always quiet and kept spotlessly clean, with a view of wild flowers beside the sun deck outside. The decking, overlooking Braga, was great for relaxing after a swim late afternoon. We ate twice in the restaurant of the Hotel Elevador, just a minute's walk away. The food, wine, setting and service were fantastic (particularly the dessert buffet!). Transport services to the hotel are efficient and cheap - the water funicular runs frequently and they attempt to make connections with the bus into Braga. Taxis are also reliable and inexpensive. The only caution I would offer about this hotel is that the staff, although polite, were rather laid-back about service. There is no bar on the sun-deck, no-one staffing the small bar downstairs, and little information is forthcoming about Bom Jesus, transport, etc. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel and other options are limited - two outdoor cafes near the hotel. The setting is lovely but the service and menu aren't great at either. I would very happily stay here again. The setting is remarkable (it is a privilege to stay on this historic site) and the hotel is great value for money.
