Coimbra, Portugal's oldest university city is one not to miss. We stayed at the Best Western and were delighted with our room which had spectacular views of the city and river. Comfortable, clean. excellent breakfasts with the usual delightful Portuguese Staff this hotel is one we would stay in again.

This is a great hotel, easy to find, easy to park, and with a very good quality. The rooms are nice and clean (altough the selection of TV channels could be improved). Wifi can be a bit slow, but it's free. The view from the from rooms is amazing, with old Coimbra just in front of the window, on the... More

2 nights in a room with a view, including breakfast and free parking for €128. Good value and good location if you are driving in and out – 15-20 minutes to Conimbriga to see the Roman ruins, and a short drive to the “free” parking lot across the river from Coimbra. “Free” because you tip the guy €1 to help...

Unless you're driving, I strongly recommend this hotel. It's not in a walking distance to the city center, not possible to walk either and there isn't public transportation nearby. Other than that, the hotel has good service, very good rooms and wifi free.

Really helpful staff who speak English. Great buffet breakfast- fresh made pastries. Wifi and computers free. Short drive to free parking just across the bridge from old town, not an easy walk anywhere from hotel,

We had an overnight stop here at the beginning of our tour as we were traveling between Madrid and Lisbon. The hotel is on the outskirts of Coimbra so not really the best location if you want to be close to the town centre. Our room was a good size with a very nice view of the town, but it... More

We have been frequent guests so have a room at the back by choice as it is quieter. The hotel has stunning city views and free parking. Very good value. Come off the motorway at Condeixa sign. Then take Coimbra signs. This avoids going thru town.Tea and coffee facilities in bedrooms and free wifi. Enjoy your stay!

The hotel is located outside of Coimbra, off a roundabout on the ring road but with a great view over the city. It is very dated in both the decoration of rooms and public areas, and in the restaurant, which was a bizarre place to eat given what every other restaurant in Portugal is like. Still, it was cheap and... More

I like this hotel. It's what you can expect from a Best Western, good value for what you need. When you check in ask for a room with a city view. Coimbra looks nice at night. There's also free wifi and the breakfast buffet was to my satisfaction. Only downside is that the only way to and from downtown is... More

We stayed here as a base to look round the area. The hotel it's self is a little dated but has all the usual facilities and services you need. The hotel has a great position on the hillside opposite Coimbra city centre so make sure you get a room on this side so you can enjoy the views. The breakfast... More
