First the hot water was out -then although I left the room at 9 in the morning it wasn't made up until at 4:30 after I asked that it be made up . The explanation - none. Sheer incompetence ! I take it the place has no manager.

Overall good hotel, 10 minute walking distance from the city center. The staff at the reception is unfriendly, didnt help us with parking issue and was pretty rude to other clients.

Their parking is a scam, go on the parking on the front, you pay 1/3 and staff there is friendly an flexible with tourists.

I stayed several nights in, unfortunately in the time of the student festivities and it was very noisy. Apart of that, it was clean and comfort. Location is great, central and it is easy to reach anything in the town. All the rooms accommodate 2 persons so it is great solution for two people who share the room in the relation price/quality.

Room Tip: for quieter room ask for the ones turned back from garden!

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.
