Another review of this hotel said if you want 5 star then pay for it. This hotel is incredibly good value. It's basic, but clean, good size rooms, the beds are very comfy with a choice of cushion. But the best thing about the hotel is the location. It's right by the Cathedral and a very short walk from all the main sights, restaurants and areas you would want to visit. There is free parking available which is rare in this small city and we were lucky enough to get one of the 5 spots. But there is lots of parking available around nearby which is not too expensive and this hotel has deal with the cat park in the liberty shopping centre for 10E for 24 hours, where you can go in and out s much as you want (go to the car park desk when you arrive to get it set up). The breakfast is good, shame there is no kettle on the room. The staff are so friendly and helpful and despite this not being a luxurious hotel and it is a bit dated, I couldn't recommend it highly enough for a short stay.

Wonderful location and easy to walk the city center. Room was very nice and windows opened to enjoy nice weather. Breakfast was usual for Europe. Needed to use business center to complete travel documents and it was pay for use. The computer was not working. Very nice desk service. Parking is limited.

Well so many people criticising this place! To start with my arrival. I had mistakenly booked my room for the next night. Not an issue. Problem fixed in a jiffy. Great service. The hotel is a bit old but if you are only staying a night or 2 what is the issue? Room was tidy and clean. Bed was reasonable. Might have been a bit softer. I had no noise issues. I was on second floor. Someone else mentioned a lack of drinking glasses. That i agree with! This place is very centrally located. Breakfast was fine, eggs but no bacon. I would stay here again

I was there this fall and fell in love with this great little city just about Porto Portugal about a 30 minute drive. Nestled in a great location was this clean and basic room with a combination bath/shower. What I really liked about it was out the front door you can walk anywhere in this city with hundreds of little shops and catherdals. I found the food a people. Wear comfortable shoes because you need to walk as the parking is away from the centre of town. When ordering food try the soups they are so tasty and always fresh and warm. I would recommend this place if your looking for a real European treat.

A small hotel with friendly, helpful staff. The complimentary breakfast is excellent. Quiet central location and nice atmosphere. Everything is within walking distance. Ask for a Map of Braga at reception. There is a cafeteria ('pastelaria Frigideiras do Cantinho') opposite which I thoroughly recommend.

Clean, cozy, with comfortable beds and satisfactory breakfast, and – of course – great location and free parking. If you want to discover the historic city and surroundings book this hotel and enjoy your Braga!
Small advice: around the corner there is a little bar. They serve wonderful Porto 😉

Perfect located in the center of Braga you probably cannot find a better place than Dona Sofia. The rates are fairly OK and the rooms are spacious and clean. People weighing over 70 kg. may find the mattresses too simple and thin ;-)
The breakfast is above average and the service at the reception is good. All in all a big 3-star experience!

Hotel Residencial Dona Sofia it’s a charming hotel in Braga City Center. The location is superb, near the historical center and streets with no cars and lots of stores good for shopping.
The hotel is an old building, functional, charming. The rooms are spacious, with many windows and “fresh” light.
All bedrooms have minibar, flat LCD TV and free wifi internet.
It has a free outside parking (on the street) for 4 or 5 cars.
A very good option to stay in Braga.

The pictures on their websites don't match the real rooms and breakfast is the worst! I contacted about parking place before booking, no problem they said but when we were there, absolutely no parking nearby! Also not happy about the service, especially the old woman at the reception
