“Easy Access”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2011

Good hotel in area for easy access by car or train. Parking is free if book on hotel internet site. Park in front of hotel, drop bags, check in, and car is parked in nearby garage by valet. Ask for upgraded room--spacious, comfortable, quiet with sliding doors kept closed and airconditioning kept on. Staff is extremely helpful. Good restaurants nearby. Access to town sites is nearby but uphill. Good value; breakfast included.

Nice staff, good location with a view. The rooms seemed shabby, not at all like the pictures. We had stayed at some really nice recommendations from trip advisor so we were surprised by the high ratings for this one. Very dirty Facade on building made us almost not check in.

Room Tip: ask for city view

Went to a wedding in Coimbra, this hotel is very close to the station.

Decor a bit dated but perfectly good condition.

Friendly staff

Main improvement would be on breakfast, which had limited selection. What was there - cheese,hams, breads were ok though

In the city center, next to railwaystation.Somewhat noisy street, but what would you expect? Hotel isn't brand new, but spotlessy clean. Friendly staff and I paid 55 euro's per night, which includes free wifi. If you're staying in Coimbra a couple of nights, Oslo is recommendable.

We were pleasantly surprised with Hotel Oslo. Great location and value. They valeted our rental car, not sure if that's standard or because it was raining, but we sue appreciated that.

Definitely recommend staying here and I did a lot of research prior to booking

The Oslo is your average value-for-money hotel. What moves it up from a three to a four is the free garage parking.

We spent two weeks traveling around Portugal. By far the biggest pain has been trying to find some place to park in town centres. We wasted hours navigating through mazes of one-way streets to find a place to leave the car within walking distance of the hotel.

The Oslo has free garage parking, plus a valet service. It was the most stress-free arrival of our trip. The hotel is located on a major street, so it's easy to find. We pulled up, took out our luggage and handed the keys to the receptionist. He parked it in the garage for us. Easy-peasy.

As for the hotel itself, it was clean, if a bit dated. The rooms were small (we had our choice of four), but adequate. The breakfast was above-average for this type of hotel. There's free wi-fi in the rooms.

Very good hotel. Free wifi in the lobby and in the room which is not frequent in Portugal. Decent breakfast! Perfect view of the old town. Clean and comfy room. Really worth it.
