I wonder if we stayed at the same hotel as some of the other reviewers. We wanted to visit Bom Jesus and booked this hotel as it was reasonably priced, and had a restaurant. Parking was easy as we arrived at just the right time. In any case there is plenty of parking available. The staff were welcoming and very...

The amazing view from both the room and the restaurant is the best there is to see. The service is no good, during the breakfast staff was removing acne from her face in front of everyone. Also staff is very suspicious, I was asked twice for my room number and name before o got permission to get back to my...

It's located above the city, overlooking the Bom Jesus and Braga. Views are spectacular. Our room was well-appointed, clean and comfortably air-conditioned, but we had no beautiful view to the valley (as do most of the rooms), but to the street with many many tourists walking in front of our window. The cathedral across the plaza is currently under renovation...

We stayed here for one night in 1986 and loved it. Eventually, we've made it back and this time we stayed for eight nights. That was probably a mistake as, as others have said, it is very isolated with little to do in the evenings, and the drive to and from Braga involves narrow roads and numerous hair pin bends....

While attending a conference at the University of Minho in Braga, I selected the Hotel do Elevador partially because of its location and size. With fewer than 25 rooms, it proved to be an intimate experience. It is located above the city, overlooking the statuary on Bom Jesus... views are simply spectacular. The plaza/terrace outside the hotel has informal eating/bar/picnic...

The view is wonderful. Tool a walk through the park and listened to singers at the church the first night. After that there is nothing to do. There is no pool. The pool is shared and located one of the other 3 hotels on this park. It is small, hot, and indoors. You have to take a cab to go...

We stayed two nights here very comfortably. I think every room has a view over the valley. We ate here a couple of times, food was OK but not spectacular. There is no transport down to Braga town, so you have to take a taxi. It's a pretty location at the top of the funicular railway, which is powered by...

The area is very beautiful architecturally and has a privileged location, with wonderful surroundings - sitting in the restaurant giving an amazing view over the city of Braga. We stayed at Hotel do Templo but were asked to eat at Elevador Restaurant which is located just across the courtyard. The staff were very attentive helpful the meal was excellent complemented...

I stayed in Hotel do Elevador for five nights as a Prestige Travel client. It is very beautiful architectonically and has a privileged location, with wonderful surroundings and an amazing view over the city of Braga. Although the rooms are a bit small and the decoration is poor, in need of a room remodeling. The bathroom, on the other hand,...
