Decent hotel. Very close to the railway station. We stayed for 6 days. Staff was very good and helpful. Good breakfast, but no restaurant. The hotel is close to some sightseeing places. Guimaraes is a very quaint little town. There is a cable car ride close to the hotel.

The hotel is almost in the city center, 2 minutes from train station. The breakfast is very good with large selection. One side of the hotel has great view to the Guimaraes city center. Personal is very nice.

We spent 2 nights here, our room is very big, lots of windows, very good air conditioning, good wifi, great bathroom, good water pressure, quiet. The hotel is walking distance from the historical centre, we found parking behind the hotel with no problem. The bed was comfortable. And it was reasonably priced.

This hotel is ideal for a few days stay. It is not too far from the local sights and there are some good restaurants near by. Parking can be tricky for larger vehicles. The rooms are clean and spacious with a nice bathroom and a travellers best friend - the kettle, and basic brew tackle on the desk by the...

Second time I've stayed here... this time on motorbikes so the secure car park was welcome. However, despite requesting rooms with a view if possible they put us on floor 2, with absolutely no view whatsoever... Also, the hot water was never really hot - just lukewarm and barely hot enough to shave - just about OK for a shower....

Very clean hotel, but the beds and pillows are terrible! So unconfortable... We barely slept because the bed was so unconfortable. The breakfast is ok... Nothing amazing; and because it doesnt have a kitchen they cant cook you anything. Not worth the price

This hotel is a very good choice in Guimaraes. It is just outside the old center, so you can easily park your car. (the hotel also has a parking garage). To the center is a 5 min walk. You can see that the hotel is rather new (2004). The rooms are spacious and clean. The bathroom is very beautiful, the...

The hotel is an easy walk from the train station and ten minutes from the medieval town centre of Guimaraes. Spotless rooms with lovely bathrooms and a good rate at €50 per night. The hotel is opposite a little cafe for morning coffee and croissants and next to a mini mall. The staff were very professional and helpful. Thoroughly recommended.

The hotel is around 10 minutes walking from the historical center. The hotel is fairly new, and the rooms were clean and modern. There is unsecured parking on a street behind the hotel, or paid parking in an underground lot. Good value.

This modern block was part of a shopping "mall" development building, and, according to the room literature, appears to have opened in 2004. It describes itself as having "Straight and nude aesthetics". Apparently hoping for conference trade, there were conference rooms, though generally it was pretty empty whilst we were there. The upper hallways, reached by lifts, were rather blank...
