“Fantastic value and nice place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Located handily for main town, and a fairly easy walk uphill to the old city and university area. Excellent room and good breakfast. People were very helpful, although with limited English. The lady spoke to me in French, not sure why! Breakfast was included, and was quite good.

Without being particularly memorable, the Hotel Vitoria gave us a comfortable stay - our room seemed to be recently furnished, the staff were helpful even with something of a language barrier, and we were in a good spot for walking to restaurants and attractions (a must in Coimbra, where the narrow streets give driving a nightmarish quality.) Breakfast was particularly nice, self-service in the hotel's small restaurant where, while there was certainly enough space for the guests, there was a home-like atmosphere. Don't expect a decadent experience here, but if you want a good night's sleep the Hotel Vitoria definitely delivers.

I booked this hotel at the last moment due to a mix up with other hotel reservations and thus did not make very in depth researches. The hotel is simple and complete new, located in a very good position, close to the railway station and the commercial street. I think it was good value. I found breakfast rather poor, though.

We decided to stay at this hotel based on recommendations from tripAdvisor, and we're glad we did! This is a great little hotel located on a small street close to other small hotels. It is very conveniently located just a short distance from the main square, Largo da Portagem. It's within easy walking distance to the river and the university and next to one of the train stations. The staff was friendly; the room was clean and comfortable, and the included breakfast was good. As far as value and comfort, it was the best deal we had during our stay in Portugal

We stayed there for one week. It is located near the train station and a Comercial street as well as near the Mondego river and its gardens. Rooms are new, clean and well maintained. Shower OK. The owners are a sympathetic couple. Breakfast OK. Near there is an amazing bakery that I also reviewed. Although some noises can be heard quality of sleep is very good.

Very negative experience, I booked a room online communicating with the hotel managers in emails, they asked when I arrive, got a reply about time (about 10 pm, 22 in the evening) and confirmed the booking. Upon arrival they failed to find the printout of the booking and were not able to find a room for me. It was at least one more room in the hotel, which they kept reserved for another person (who could arrive later and had the booking form printed out fir the receptionist). Hopefully the lady at the reception found me a reasonable accomodation in a hotel nearby at the same price. Three day later I stayed in a better hotel in Lisbon with a lower price, just £32.50/night with edible breakfast and internet at the second floor. But I liked Portugal!
