Situated a little far from the center of city, but with regular, charge free transfers from the hotel to the centre. Amazing panorama view on Coimbra. Restaurant with Michelin nomination 2014. Rooms large enough. Bathrooms clean but need to be renovate. Air condition and free internet. Really good place for one, two days to see this beautiful city.

It turned out to be extremely difficult to find a hotel with on-sight-parking in Coimbra. Most of the hotels are located in the old town or near the train station, only one of them offered free parking, and that one did not appeal to us. D. Luis turned out to be a great option. We booked a simple room through... More

Our room had a view to nowhere. Ask for the rooms with city orientation. That is also a downside of this hotel. You would have to drive with a car to see the city centre. It is too far to walk. The breakfast area is large and has a lot of products, but when we we're there after 9:00 a... More

An older hotel with rooms slightly dated but very large and excellent facilities. Also good dining room and breakfast and excellent value for money. Free wifi and good parking also free. Location overlooking Coimbra and the river - taxi about 5 euros to centre.

A bit disappointing on the cleanliness of the room - soap stains on sink and floor. Also, hand soap at sink was almost running out and by the end of the one day stay it was gone. Hotel staff not very welcoming. But large rooms with an awesome panoramic view of the city. Well-impressed by the restaurant service provided. Good... More

A slightly dated hotel with a wonderful view of the city. I never felt welcome. the bar wasn't manned; the staff seemed to ignore clients and whole place looked half closed. Food was very average and less choice than other hotels from the biuffet.

This dated hotel has seen better days. A bit depressing, out of the way (across the river from the town) hotel full of tour groups. The dinner was just OK and the breakfast was passable. If you want to get the flavor of Coimbra, do not choose this hotel. Having said that, it does have a very nice panoramic view... More

We live close to Coimbra and were invited to dinner here with friends. The staff are very agreeable, and it was lovely to sit in a good sized dining room with no TV on!!

Very nice hotel, great location with a spectacular view of the city of Coimbra. What I liked most was the breakfast, with a good variety of choices including English breakfast. What I liked least was the material already a little outdated. The people was very competent and nice. Very clean in all areas.
