NEW: Thanks to Peter Sinnott we have a google map with a lot of interesting points here. We will be adding more as we have time.

NEW: you can also stay in a universitary residence. It is cheaper, but does not include breakfast. Check UniversitaryResidence for more information, please. (Google Map)

NEW: We have also special prices for Hotel do Bom Jesus, Hotel do Elevador and Hotel do Templo.

The numbers shown are so that you can find them on this map of Braga. (some hotels not yet available on the map – Caution: 5MB PNG)

These are the three selected hotels for the conference (be sure to read the bottom of this page too):

The last two hotels belong to the same company, and are about 100 meters apart from each other.

Some reference points, also on the map:


An attempt to translate the text we were sent by Hotel Lamaçães regarding its conditions:

This 3 star hotel has 52 double rooms (4 of which are adapted for physical impaired people) with all the comodities of modern hotels, air conditioned, TV and internet connection in all bedrooms (we only have the connection, not the equipment) [I would also like to add that you have to pay to access the internet], private garage and others. We also have the possibility of having triple and quadruple bedrooms.


An attempt to translate the text we were sent by Hotel Carandá regarding its conditions:

The HOTEL RESIDENCIAL CARANDÁ is located in the centre of the city of Braga (100 meters from the Hotel Turismo). This 3 star hotel was completely remodeled in 2002.

It has 82 bedrooms (smoking and non-smoking), modernly decorated, living room with TV, breakfast room, 1 meeting/conference room and a private garage.

The 82 bedrooms, one of which adapted for phisycal impaired people, are equiped with satellite televition (44 channels + SPORT TV), direct telephone, air conditioned, complete bathroom, hairdrier and double glass windows.

Bar, restaurant and external pool in the Hotel Turismo de Braga.


An attempt to translate the text we were sent by Hotel Turismo regarding its conditions:

The HOTEL TURISMO DE BRAGA, an ample and confortable space, is located in the centre of the city of Braga. This 4 star hotel was completely remodeled in 2003. It has 132 bedrooms (smoking and non-smoking), underground parking facilities with capacity for 250 cars, restaurant, bar, external swimming pool with bar (open from May to September), living room and giant TV screen and 5 meeting/conference rooms with natural light, direct access to the internet and capacity of up to 250 people. [I think the "direct access to the internet" refers only to these meeting rooms]

The 132 bedrooms, among which 22 are junior suites, modernly decorated, are equiped with satellite television (44 channels + SPORT TV), direct telephone, air conditioned, mini-bar, complete bathroom and hairdried. The hotel also has two executive floors (40 bedrooms) with direct access to the internet [they claim it's direct access to the internet but, according to someone who called them and asked, they just have telephones].

Coming soon: Wireless in the reception, meeting rooms, bar, restaurant and living room.




In case you need to go to some other hotel, here's a list of others (with which we don't have any kind of agreement for special rates):











So basically we have three designated hotels (of which we've only heard good things so far, from people who have stayed in them) and a list of other hotels (just in case you need it).

If you want to, you can also consider Camping.

Another alternative is to stay at the UniversitaryResidence.
