Traditional and modern meet and merge to perfection at the Dona Sofia Hotel in Braga, Portugal. Set inside a large period building in the heart of Portugal’s oldest city, the Dona Sofia Hotel offers guests a beguiling mix of present-day comforts and old-world history.
The hotel is conveniently positioned close to all the city’s attractions, from Roman remains and Baroque cathedrals to bars, shops, restaurants and leisure venues that keep locals and visitors fed, watered, clothed and entertained 365 days a year. Much of central Braga is pedestrianised, making on-foot exploration from the Dona Sofia Hotel an easy and compelling option.
34 guest rooms provide ample choice for tourists and business visitors, whatever their reason for staying in Braga and whatever the length of their stay. The warm colours of the décor make for a welcoming ambience and the furnishings are comfortable, fresh and clean.
All rooms come with a music system, flat-screen television with land-based and satellite channels, direct-dial telephone, wireless internet access, air conditioning and mini bar. There is a laundry service via the room and some rooms are adapted for disabled access. All rooms come with en-suite private bathroom.
Elsewhere in the hotel, there is a comfortable lounge area with television service, as well as a bar where guests can relax with a drink after a long day’s sightseeing or business meetings. Business guests are well catered for at the Dona Sofia Hotel, with meeting and conference facilities on site.
The hotel is a popular choice for product launches and presentations, meetings, conferences, training sessions and workshops. Facilities available to business guests include a projector, video player, television, flip chart, printer, and of course wireless internet access.
The helpful hotel staff are on hand to provide information about local attractions and to assist with bookings should you require it. Exploration of the centre of this historic city is a must, with its ancient architecture and culture in evidence at every turn.
Outside Braga, there is plenty to explore in this delightful corner of northern Portugal. Travel to nearby Guimaraes, with its famous monuments, or head to the ancient Iron Age settlement at Citania de Briteiros.
Further afield the coastal city of Porto beckons, home of the delicious port wine, or for those with a sense of adventure and a taste for the outdoors, the Peneda-Geres National Park offers cycling, hiking and climbing for all abilities.
