Disappointing building, great view May 31, 2012
After an overall good impression of our overnight stays at the Paradores in Spain, we had high hopes for our hotel in Braganca, our only non Spanish location this holiday.

We booked the Pousada de Braganca "Sao Bartolomeu" well in advance.

The pousada is situated on the edge of Braganca halfway on the hill with the Saint Bartolomeus chapel overlooking the medieval walled town. From our balcony we had a truly wonderful view on the old town dominated by the (at night alluminated) castle tower and white church.

When arriving at the pousada there's enough space to park your car near the entrance. The building itself looks like a small hospital out of the 50's. After entering the building you go 20 years forward in time. The interior is very much 70's with much wood on the walls and long corridors with dito carpets. The bar has the same 70's atmosphere, but the cocktails taste very modern (luckily). The restaurant is OK with buffet breakfast and a la carte dinner. We liked to spend much time at a table on the long balcony of the restaurant, enjoying our drinks and delicious melon cocktail while having a gorgeous view on Braganca new and old town.

Our room was at the end of the long corridor. It was spacious with a large twin bed, a dated bath room and a nice balcony.

The staff was very friendly, though a bit basic in English.

We can recommend this hotel mainly because of the great view, but don't expect to stay in a historical building, which you normally expect when booking a parador or pousada.

Our room costed € 108 including breakfast and wooden wall paper...

Located in one of the most interesting medieval cities of Portugal, this charming hotel in Braganca combines perfectly its architecture, decoration and gastronomy with the regional culture.
