Although not impressive from the outside, this Comfort Inn is a great bargain in a convenient location, with pleasant rooms and a friendly staff.
It is on the main business street, Rua de Fernao Magalhaes, about 10 minutes south of the bus station (look for the Neptune Café next to the entrance) and about 10 minutes north of the train station “A”. Near the train station is Largo (Plaza) Portagem, between the charming old town and the main bridge (Santa Clara).
For only 40 euros (about 52 USD) per night I got a comfortable room with two double beds and a balcony with distant views of the river. Best of all, the breakfast buffet was included and is quite extensive, including hot foods, fruit, cold foods, etc.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially the evening shift front desk clerk. There is a small mezzanine lounge with vending machines and a desk-top computer with free internet access for guests (in addition to the hotel’s wi-fi).
The façade of the hotel is a bit scruffy and the entry is somewhat hidden by shops, but this hotel offers everything you will need for a pleasant and very reasonably priced stay in enjoyable Coimbra.
I would happily stay here again. It was the best hotel value in my month-long vacation.
