The B & B is in the old city by the University. What they say in their advertisement is right. Coimbra is a city of steep hills. It is a great location but you must be ok to walk up steep hills and the B & B itself has many floors with many stairs. However, the stairs are comfortable to walk up and down, but you must walk up and down them.
The room was a double (two twins pushed together) and was clean. It is old, nothing spectacular, BUT it is clean and the women who run it are really nice and very helpful with where and what to see. One thing, is that you can really hear your neighbors in the room next to you. YOu can hear them cough, open their closets and talk. No one snored next to me but I can see that being a problem if it would happen.
Breakfast was ok, nothing special. Was the usual: hardboiled eggs, yogurt, coffee, cheese and meat slices. The cheese and meat are probably my least favorite as well as the eggs were too runny for me but you can have cereal or something else.
