Ibis Coimbra

Reviewed July 25, 2012

Coimbra is an excellent stop between Porto and Lisbon with lots of nice monuments such as the university. The Ibis Hotel of the French Accor group is an excellent place to stay for several reasons:
- nicely situated alongside the river
- a few steps to walk from the city center
- friendly and helpful staff at the reception
- and as most of the visitors are making the trip by car , they have a private parking under the hotel for a small fee per night. In fact I would suggest that arriving in Coimbra in the morning with a car you visit first the nice university area, which is uptown and the visit areas at the other side of the river and then check in, as the downtown historic center you walk. So you leave your car inside the hotel parking
Further you have the advantage that the price/quality ratio is good in Ibis. Don’t forget that this is a 2 star only. The rooms are clean and comfortable, reasonable size. The breakfast is honest buffet. (Note you have machines for pressing the fresh oranges!)
Free wifi at the reception area, and payable at small fee in your room…. however they are very flexible and you receive at least a code for an hour free of charge!
At least with the standards of hotel chain you know in advance that you will have an honest hotel, of course not a 5 star luxury palace.

Stayed just one night. It was very pricy, but has a very nice location. The rooms were clean, but dated. This was the most expensive hotel during our stay in Portugal, but was definitely not worth the money.

We chose to stay at the Ibis because of the very affordable rates and central location. The hotel is very easy to find and is well sign-posted. It is also a 5 minute walk from the old town which is very handy for sight-seeing. The hotel itself is pleasant and rooms are of the standard Ibis quality. Rooms are not very big but are clean and have a TV and hairdryer. The staff were friendly. Breakfast costs at extra 6 euro and so does parking in the basement garage. If you are looking for good quality, budget accommadation, this is a great place to stay.

As usual the Ibis delivers exactly what you expect for a great price. The only thing that lets this Ibis down a little is that the rooms are starting to look a bit warn.

It's a 2 star hotel so you just expect a small but clean room, with a regular bed. I got this but, i do consider bed to be reasonable confortable. The room is very small and bathroom even more. It's OK for 1 or 2 days when you want to travel with a limited budget (49€ per night). I had not have breakfast there (6€ extra). It's 2 minute walk from city center and just in front of Mondego River. The location is ok.
