The Melia Braga Hotel and Spa is a recent addition to Braga’s accommodation options and is proving popular both with tourists and business visitors alike. Its modern building makes for an unexpected sight amongst the traditional architecture of Portugal’s oldest city, but the broad, glass panelled exterior sets off this five-star establishment to perfection.
The Melia Braga Hotel & Spa is located close to the university, just five minutes from the city centre and all its shopping and historical attractions. Guests have a choice of 182 different rooms and suites, all decorated in sleek, modern style and featuring the latest technology to ensure their comfort.
20 executive suites with kitchenette are ideal for families or those looking for more space, perhaps for a longer stay.
There is also an impressive presidential suite, and two rooms that are fully adapted to meet the needs of disabled guests.
All rooms are equipped with individually controlled air conditioning, LCD TV with digital channels, direct-dial telephones, broadband internet, mini bar and safety deposit box. Guests may take breakfast in their room, and room service can be ordered round the clock, whether for a snack or a full, three-course meal.
An impressive buffet breakfast is served in the Restaurant El Olivio, which seats 150 people. This is also a popular venue for guests, locals and other visitors for its high-quality Portuguese cuisine and “show cooking” events.
For a more relaxed environment, try the Bar Bracara for tapas, snacks and early evening cocktails, often to the accompaniment of live music and entertainment. The pool bar is also a popular choice during the day and early evening, especially during the warm summer season.
There is much to see in Braga, Portugal, and the Melia Braga Hotel & Spa is well located for guests to make the most of their visit.
However, if time permits or you are due to spend more than a day or two in Portugal’s historical northern city, do make time to enjoy the hotel’s leisure services, which include a heated outdoor pool, separate children’s pool, heated indoor pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, massage and therapy zone, and a fully equipped fitness centre.
The helpful staff, excellent modern facilities and central location make this a first choice for anyone looking for a hotel stay in Braga, Portugal.
