Excellent hotel in an unremarkable city. The junior suite is enormous and very comfortable. The breakfast was the best we had in Portugal with a multitude of choices including delicious breads and pastries, cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, fresh juice, and eggs cooked to order. Wifi is free but only in the lobby.

Room Tip: Junior suite is huge and worth the upcharge.

This hotel was in a great location just a short walk from the University. Once we parked our car we did not need to use it until we left Coimbra to continue our travels. The hotel staff was very helpful and the room clean and the bed comfortable with a wrap-around balcony. The only problem we had was with the air conditioning when we first arrived in our room but we called the front desk and within 15 minutes a technician appeared and fixed the AC. That being said, I prefer a room that is a bit cooler that we could achieve with our AC. Soon after we settled in the room there was a knock on the door and hotel staff appeard with a couple of apples and bottles of water - a nice touch. The large lobby was a perfect place to have a drink with friends or use wifi. We enjoyed the buffet for dinner. There was a nice selection of appetizers, salads and desserts and the entree selections offered that evening were lasagna, grilled fish and Swedish meatball. The cost was around $20 per per person. High for Portugal but worth the price. Breakfast was served buffet style in the same dining room and was encluded in the price of the room.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room if you'd like a wrap around balcony.

This was a wonderful hotel, very clean, friendly staff, excellent restaurant with ala carte but has a terrific buffett as well. Can be a little tricky to find however as it is tucked back off the main road with no signage. Wifi only available in lobby also a downside but does not distract from the quality of the hotel. Beautiful outdoor pool too!

We stayed only for 1 night as we passed through Coimbra. We had a car, so took the short drive to the nearby town centre, to try to get some food. There isn't a great deal within close walking distance of this hotel, it would be maybe 10minute walk to city centre.

Initially we were given a room but when going inside someone was already in there. The staff seemed embarrassed when we went back, and said they would give us a "better" room, with river view.

The room was compact, but adequate, and certainly worth the price paid. It was clean and had good bathroom.

The breakfast included was quite good, a range of fruits, pastrys, cereals, juice, etc.

I would recommend this as a good hotel for "stopover" at Coimbra.

We stayed 2 nights with breakfast included. Room and bathroom was large and uninteresting. We had booked a double bed and were provided with two singles pushed next to each other with seperate sheets. The room had a large TV and plenty of hanging space. Outdoor pool was lovely but the water temperature was cold. The hotel is a short walk from the centre or only a 3 euro taxi ride. Breakfast had a wide selection but only american style coffee no espresso and fruit juices were from concerntrate and far too sweet. We used the spa(extra cost) downstairs and loved the steamroom, sauna, showers and heated pool. The hotel wasn't able to provide us with a decent map of the city. The map provided us was a colour copy of another map and had hardly any streets marked. For the price we paid the hotel was very good value.
