Travellers' Choice
Devoted to the history of convents and the founding of Portugal, this unit integrates the Collection concept, distinguished by its quality service. Vila Gale Collection Braga is born from the rehabilitation of the former Sao Marcos hospital, a building of public interest, dating from 1508 and built where there used to be a hermitage devoted to Sao Marcos, a hostel and a Templar convent. Respecting the building’s historical and architectural side, this hotel maintains the existing structure and recovers elements such as the original vaulted ceilings.

located in an old monastery, the rooms are modern and spacioius. reception is friendly and happy to help. breakfast was a bit disappointing since the waiters avoided us non portugese tourists - may be they were to shy. :-) - so we had by fortune a coffee and a croissant, but no butter oder jam. - then they were able to serve a juice but they never told us, what is on the breakfast menue. - no chance to know what to order. Also the lady at the spa was more interested in fixing the shape of her nails then in helping two potential guests.

Vila Gale´s location is perfect, right in the middle of the old town. Beautiful building, surrounded by other beautiful sights. Plenty to see around the hotel, within walking distance. Parking available. Friendly, very professional staff. Clean rooms, comfortable beds and good internet. Our bathroom was very small but thoroughly clean. Social distancing fully complied with and hand sanitizer available throughout the hotel. Breakfast was very tasty with plenty to choose from. Looking forward to going back.

Lovely hotel - building is beautiful rooms are good and spacious - fluffy white robes and slippers. Cleaned everyday - indoor pool was lovely to unwind after walking around and visiting Braga stadium. Gym small but useable. Location - excellent, would happily return.

It's the outside photograph of the hotel that will win you over, it did me. Part of the hotel is inside a 500 year old ex-Monastery. Rooms are adequate think a posh Travelodge, Box standard furniture with pretty poor bathrooms. Breakfast was buffet style and nothing to write home about. Staff were reasonably competent without being brilliant.I do like friendly welcoming reception staff but sadly they were not. Braga is a beautiful city but there must be a better hotel then this.

From the frontage I expected a relatively small and olde worldy hotel but nothing could be further from the truth. Actually quite a modern large hotel with all the benefits of a large brand. Staff were very helpful and friendly, rooms were large, well equipped and clean and well decorated. Would stay here again but not if I wanted quaint charm. Had the benefit of a spa and indoor and outdoor pools as well
