Friendly manager and staff. Breakfast included in room price, modest, but all I personally needed. Rooms are relatively small, but modern, clean, with aircon (if needed), bathroom, small balcony.
Unique Quality: The location: it is situated right opposite the railway station, and a short 7 min walk to the city center.
Directions: Leave the railway station and have a look across the road: there it is!
I stayed only one night in Guimaraes and as it was my first night in Portugal on this trip I booked the accomodation in advance through http://www.booking.com/.
My single room was actually a double room with a TV and a small balcony facing the street. It cost only 27 Euro and the price included a basic buffet style breakfast.
The staff were very helpful and attentive although they almost didn't speak any English.
Directions: The Residencia Dom Joao IV is located only 3 minutes on foot from the train station, so it is the perfect accomodation when arriving by train. A walk to the historic city centre takes about 15 minutes.
