The Lamacaes in Braga, Portugal, offers spacious and comfortable accommodation in a modern style. While no longer newly built, the hotel oozes 70s splendour in a rather fashionable retro way and can make a delightful alternative to the super-modern or ultra-traditional alternatives on offer in the historic city of Braga.
The hotel is located centrally, close to the University of Minho, one of Portugal’s leading education and research establishments. It is just 200 metres from the Iberian Nanotechnology Centre and five minutes from the centre of the old town, with its shops, bars, restaurants and cultural attractions.
The Lamacaes Hotel offers guests a choice from 52 well-decorated rooms, mostly larger than the average thanks to its more modern building, and each with en-suite facilities. Four of the rooms are adapted for wheelchair users and those with reduced mobility and there are larger family rooms for families or small groups.
All rooms feature a safety deposit box, heating and air conditioning, en-suite bathroom, hair dryer, television and free internet access. Breakfast is available buffet style or via room service by request. A newspaper service is also available and guests can benefit from laundry, fax/photocopying service and business facilities.
Business guests have meeting and banqueting facilities at their disposal, making this a popular choice for sightseers and business guests alike. The event hall has been newly renovated and has a capacity for 200 guests.
There is an on-site bar at the Lamacaes Hotel, ideal for sharing an early evening drink with your travel companions and reflecting on the day’s adventures. With so much to see and do in and around Braga, there will be plenty of tales to keep you amused.
If you are travelling by car, there is free parking available on site, enabling you to take your car off with you to explore further afield, or leave it parked up safely while you navigate your way around Portugal’s oldest town on foot.
The Lamacaes Hotel is located in the Nogueiró district of Braga and provides easy access not just to the attractions of the city itself but also to the surrounding Minho area. The Peneda-Geres National Park is a wonderland of animals and unusual plant species and is one of the most important protected parklands in Portugal.
It is a popular destination for hiking, cycling, climbing and pony riding and is well worth taking the time to explore if you are in Braga for more than a couple of days.
