A very good value. My wife and I and two friends stayed here for one night in October 2013. The hotel is very centrally located, close to the Coimbra A train station and an easy (well, uphill) walk to old-town and the fascinating "old" (1290) university. What a vibrant college scene, thoroughly enjoyable! The hotel staff let us check in a bit early, and brought our luggage to the room, and we could pay by credit card. (Don't take that for granted in Portugal.) Clean, comfortable, relatively spacious room, quieter than I would have thought. The staff was helpful and friendly. Two big pluses: a rooftop bar terrace with an amazing view, and a fine (included) breakfast. Very reasonably priced. We were in Portugal for two weeks, and I wish we had spent more time in Coimbra. Don't miss Fado Central, on the way to the university and a superb evening of entertainment. And one of the best, and relatively inexpensive, meals we had in Portugal (and the most engaging waitress I have met in a very long time) was at A Cozinha da Maria, less than a 5 minute walk from hotel. PS. When we checked in, we were offered what seemed to be a reasonably priced upgrade to a "superior" room. We declined, because we knew that we would be out late and up early. I did meet a couple who took the upgrade and were delighted, so that might make a lot of sense if you're staying longer -- which we will next time. Coimbra is a real treasure.
