This hotel is in the heart of the city, very clean and offer a nice breakfast, simple but good. The toilets are big and they have bathtub. The price is economic for a family. Its a nice place to stay and enjoy the city.

I've stayed only for a night and for my big surprise the meals at the bar aren't cooked in the hotel but in a nearby restaurant. That should be changed in my opinion. Besides that, the rooms need a new decoration and some small repairs.

Fundador seems to better with age. This time I got the room 607. That made a difference. Only the breakfast could improve significantly. Then it would appear as a realistic 4 stsrs, which it isn't. The best in Guimarães.

Stayed for one day to visit the medieval center of Guimaraes. The hotel was clean and the rooms were the expected from a typical 3 star hotel. Breakfast was average. The main advantages of this hotel were the convenient location, parking in the basement, the free wifi and helpful and guests oriented staff.

We stumbled upon Hotel Fundador late last night & what a pleasant surprise! Very friendly service, large clean rooms, close to town and excellent value - hard to fault (unless dated decor gets you down). €50 for a massive twin room (actually a queen + 2 singles) with parking & breakfast included. Oh, and WiFi in the room. Definitely worth...

This hotel is only a few hundred meters from the train station so you can walk there. For the price its a good hotel. The breakfast room has the most fantastic views. The rooms are big and clean, maybe slightly dated still but nothing bad. Its close to walk into the main centre so quite central to everything. Free wifi...
