“Terrible experience.”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

The place was being refurbished at the time we stayed there, but nobody cared to inform us beforehand, even though we booked our rooms in advance. The kitchen was closed so despite booking a room with breakfast we were not able to have it there. We were given some money towards the breakfast, but I think it was around 2-3 Euros. And we only got that after we enquired about the breakfast, they were not really forthcoming with the information and offer...
The rooms were clean, but it did look like the time stopped there in the 70s. It was also quite cold and we were only given a small electric heater.
Will not be staying there again.

The price is good and the location is really good. Just in the center. On the one side there is a beautiful park, on the other it is main street of old Town. The lobby looks great, stuff is the most helpful (Only in five star hotel in Nazare I've met the same) I have met in Portuguese. The minuses of the hotel is that the rooms looked really creepy. They are not clean and needs to be refurbished. Only one of five lamps in the room were working. So it was quite dark. In the drawer I found an opened box of condoms.
Breakfast in the hotel was poor (one of the poorest I have ever eaten in the hotel).
The car parking place is free, but it is small, and only six cars can use it. If Your car is parked first, You have to move out other three cars, which are parked behind You, to get out (it takes time).
To sum up, I'd like to get back to this hotel only after it is refurbished.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same condition.

Really helpful friendly staff. The decor of the hotel was old world charm, large & clean. The bathroom was more modern & clean. Had a great view of the river & really close to all the city sites. Great Indian restaurant next door. For the price paid it is great value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for river view.

Near the shopping district and not far from the historic center of Coimbra, Avenida is a neat place to stay in. The location is great and it's not expensive compared to most of the other possibilities the city has to offer. The new management is trying hard to improve the place. We'll be back!

The place is in the heart of downtown. The commodities were good vs the price charged, and the team was 5*.
