Perfect business hotel
This is the perfect business hotel. It’s conveniently located right close by the city centre of Guimares and it has everything you need in terms of business trips needs: good rooms, breakfast and parking on location. It’s not the most good looking hotel from the outside and I would not go for a romantic getaway but it is great for business. Staff is caring and kind.
