Mercure Braga Centro

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A great place to stay conveniently located for the center of Braga a city which despite first impressions has a magical touch. Very nice reception, really proactive staff. The rooms are very comfortable and very well kept. A place where you really can unwind after a hard day. Only the breakfast could be better. Often the tables aren't cleaned and staff slow and unresponsive.

We visited the hotel in late August and picked mercure hotel because it was central to the shopping, restaurants and cafes and also because of its great reviews. The hotel seems recently updated which was really nice from the furniture and the big bathroom and beautiful view of downtown braga. The roof top pool was a bonus in looking for a hotel in downtown and the view from the top was breathtaking. It is about a 5-10 min walk to the centro and not far from the highways to get to Barcelos, geres and porto. The convince of the underground parking lot was great, if your staying for more than a few days they give you your own parking pass so you don't need to validate. Front desk staff were very helpful and very polite. Highly recommend the stay at this hotel because it has everything to offer.

What a charming place to stay... room extremely clean and well serviced. Reception staff go that step further to help you with all there needs. Restaurant could improve. Bar staff and swimming pool staff very friendly and polite. Good value and will stay again.

Stayed here on an overnight stop touring Spain/Portugal. Check in was very easy and secure underground parking right outside was perfect for the bikes. Room was clean and spacious. Straight up to the roof top pool for a drink and to cool down which was lovely. Wondered into the town which was only 5-10 minutes walk. Perfect location really to get to town without it being to load at the end of the night. Really enjoyed Braga with it's easy atmosphere and tapas bars. Morning breakfast was a good mix of continental, cooked or pastries. Plenty of options. Check out was just as easy. The staff where all polite, friendly and very helpful. Cannot fault the service, food, room or cleanliness.

Lovely hotel, everywhere was nice and clean, all the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful - a credit to the hotel. The hotel is in a good central location, walking distance to restaurants and bars etc. Only had breakfast in the hotel (2 days) but had everything we needed and then some - cold meats / cheeses, yoghurts etc as well as all the hot food you could ask for. Rooftop pool area was a bonus especially to catch the sunshine but the pool is not heated so bear this in mind as quite cold. Would definitely stay here again.

Very nice hotel, 5' walking from the city centre (restaurants, bar, ..), 5' driving from the Parque Shoppimg Centre. The room is spacious and very clean. Excellent bed quality, no noises and perfect sleeping. Very good breakfast Nice swimming pool on the roof top Laundry service very fast but could be improved the shirts' ironinig. Check in and out very quick

The hotel is indeed very simple, yet all pre-requisites of the Mercure standard list are there and nothing will be really missed! Location is prime, very near all points of interest in Braga, with facilities like ATMs, supermarket, restaurants and alike within no 200m away! Check-in was quick and uncomplicated, Margarida and her team are most welcoming! The suite is large and is not overfurnished, not to say a bit barren, but maybe it's better like that in a place like Braga - what chandeliers and vintage chairs for there? The room has a very potent AC but the constant breeze is enough with the terrace door open in the night - no, it's not at all noisy, only as of 7pm, but you'll be up by then! Breakfast has everything you may need, all in simple and plain presentation, you won't miss much. Parking costs 7 euros for hotel guests, you should just take the card and remember to validate it with the reception before going out each time.. The pool on the top floor is small but perfect for children; there is a covered area beside it for your comfort, and the view is amazing! Internet is fast and reliable, cleaning is impeccable, personnel is most friendly and attentive. A do-up into modern will be needed at some point and I am sure it's been taken into consideration by management. Anyway, a place to recommend with no second thoughts!

Just came and stayed here for couple of days of the feast. Very centrally located hotel . Rooms nice, clean and decent. Food needs lots of improvement. Otherwise worth recommending to fellow traveller when in Braga

Front reception staff are indifferent, not friendly or care about your day. No interaction when guests cross the lobby. Breakfast not worth the money, coffee is undrinkable and hot items are inedible. Go to a neighborhood cafe instead.

Really nicely located place, easily accessible. Good, modern rooms with well equipped bathroom (great, spacious shower). However I would not recommend the hotel's restaurant, food was mostly mediocre. Breakfast was low choice relatively speaking and dinners were hit or miss really. Be prepared to have to walk up to your room as the elevators break down pretty often.
