Almost everything was excellent. We had a lovely room at the front in the modern section of the hotel. The room was spacious and had a large window with a view. The staff were helpful and the breakfast was adequate but not spectacular, gardens were beautiful and defiantly worth a look. The large lounge area had an inviting open fire...

Everything was just perfect, the historical building can be a destination on its own. There are many corners inside the building where you can just sit and relax or read and it feels like walking through a museum. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly with an excellent knowledge of English. The rooms are the former monk cells, and include...

This is a remarkable place to stay. Together, the grounds and the pousada are vast. Everywhere you have the impression of being rather lost in huge spaces and high ceilings. Nevertheless, it is a human space, brilliantly remodeled with a perfect harmony between history and a large degree of modernity and comfort. The grounds were certainly magnificent in their time,...

We truly loved our stay at the pousada, and wouldn't have changed a thing. The beauty extends far past the monastery itself. Stroll through the gardens and along the pathways to experience peace and tranquility. Our dining experiences were exceptional, and the staff was flawless in their attention to detail. Highly recommend.

This is also listed as the pousada mosterio when you are booking. We were very glad we had google maps to find this place as it entailed some narrow one way streets located outside the downtown centre of Guimaraes. Beautiful gardens and pool, great view over the city, huge public rooms with antiques. Actual bedroom (a superior room with a...

Up a windy road sits a magnificent monastery.The cloister adjoins a church and behind ,a sprawling garden with woods beyond. The views are superb. The pousada belongs to a chain and, thanks to lots of money and some clever architects,it is a good hotel. The rooms in the old wing really are cells, double cells as the walls have been...

The hotel setting is great historic building with amazing gardens. Breakfast was good. Didn't took dinner there since we found it expansive so we drove in town. The only downside for me was getting there. It's a bit tricky, with a uphill drive through narrow roads and sharp turns. I would strongly advice to get familiar with google before going...

Guimarães is a great place to visit! The hotel is an average hotel, with a great location, nice stuff, clean and children friendly. Price is also good. I would stay there again. Right beside, there is a meat restaurant called Migas, worth a visit!!!!

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days and treated ourselves to a suite. The addition of a small lounge was wonderful when other friends joined us for a pre dinner drink.
