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

Hotel has own complimentary shuttle to/from town for guests - very helpful. Good restaurant - we had dinner 2 nights - try the bbq meat platter - excellent!. Good location... 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.

We stopped at this little hotel for lunch after touring the City sights. The hotel was comfortable and it looked a suitable hotel for short stays, nothing fancy but clean with good food and relatively cheap.

The rooms are ver spacious, and have a good Internet connection. The view from the Hotel is absolutely amazing. The Hotel is however not in walking distance from the city centre, nor from restaurants, you need to drive from there. The rooms are also not very modern, but comfortable enough.
