Outside of the city centre, you find hotel Dom Luis. The drive towards the hotel through the garden is beautiful. Hotel is located on a hill with a fantastic view over the old city. There is plenty of parking space in front of the hotel. The hotel itself is very dated. Very dated, but clean. Nowadays people expect a bit... More

Hotel is outside Coimbra on a hill. We had some problems finding it by car. It's quite big. Rooms are comfortable. We had a big terrace with nice view on Coimbra. We thought we can easily walk to Coimbra, but better don't do that. It's partly walking on the highway (dangerous), and a really too long walk. Go by car,... More

Great hotel, with lovely views of Coimbra. Comfortable room. Pleasant reception. Didn't eat breakfast, so no comment. Free parking in a large parking area. Bar could do with an update, but good service. Would recommend this hotel and stay again.

Room clearly from the 80', beds old style, without any esthetic. Don't come unless you are ready for a chip style hotel at a high price. Obviously the managers stopped caring about updating the qualities and esthetic of the rooms, bathroom and all kind of furniture.
