If you have to stay in Coimbra, this is not a bad choice. There are not many choices in the area and although this hotel has some pretty dated decor, it is clean, the staff are friendly enough and the food is good too. Set on a hill overlooking the town, the hotel does command a great view. It is... More

A little way out of the city centre and on the opposite side of the river, this hotel is situated on the hills overlooking Coimbra. It won't win any prizes for architectural innovation but it's a short taxi ride from the centre which is important as there isn't much going on nearby. Nevertheless it is quiet, comfortable, clean and well... More

The hotel has a great view towards the city of Coimbra. It´s not really situated close to the (historic) city center, but a taxi ride shouldn´t take longer than 10 minutes. The breakfast buffet was great.

A very pleasant hotel on the outskirts of coimbra. Excellent English spoken by front desk staff. The room was well furnished and the bed was large and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was ample with all the usual items and a good choice of fresh fruit. Large car park.

The hotel is on the opposite side of the city with beautiful views across the river. The rooms were lovely but the breakfast was not so good.

The Hotel Don Luis is not modern. But, the staff were extremely gracious and the food was good. The hotel sits at the top of a hill overlooking Coimbra and the view is breathtaking. There is a seating area just outside the bar where you can sit and view the lights of the city below. It was charming.

Location of this hotel is outside the city on a hill with spectacular views to Coimbra. The hotel has a curtesy mini bus into the city, so parking is no objective. The rooms are a good size and the breakfast is really good with both cold and hot food. Good value for the money.
