Great location for exploring Braga
Posted May 30, 2014 on Hotels
We took the train from Porto to Braga and decided to stay at the Basic Braga Hotel because of its location next to the train station which would be convenient for the follow on train trip to Lisbon. The hotel is actually located behind the station and is accessible from inside the station. Did not notice this entrance until we left for the trip to Lisbon. This entrance actually leads into the hotel restaurant and from there to the lobby. If you walk around from the outside after exiting the train station, then turn left behind the taxi stand. The hotel is not marked very well. The entrance sits off in a corner and is marked by a large white Letter H. The hotel was clean with comfortable beds and reasonably priced and the location to town was perfect. It really is only a short walk to town. I was traveling with my daughter and we never felt unsafe, even when we returned in the dark. The breakfast buffet at the hotel was ok, but we preferred the small Cafe across the street. Internet avcess was good and there was a $2 charge per day for internet access.
