“Wonderdully located, good value for money, free wifi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Magnificent city and the hotel is located with a forest in front of the breakfast area :-) Free wifi, but don't bother too much staying indoors - go outside !
Good breakfast, rooms are tidy but furniture looks old. It may fit in the whole city environment, but it's not too bad.
Parking a car in the basement might prove dangerous if you don't have very good skills - going out to the main road is done through a very narrow street with curves ! Better find parking outside.
Overall recommended !

Room Tip: get a room with a view to the castle ! it's fantastic.

Went there on a business trip requiring to stay near the hospitals, so it's location was perfect. I could just walk there. Nonetheless, it is not that close to city center.
It was easy to park outside the parking.
As for the hotel itself, it is a clean and nice hotel. Good and large room, comfortable beds and roomy bathroom.
Breakfast was good, even if it didn't had that much variety, and had lunch there and it was a good tasty meal.

I stayed here for 2 nights for business so I cannot comment on the value with regard to price. The room was spacious and clean with a decent free Wifi connection. I slept well on a firm bed. The breakfast was nice and free.

My husband and I spent one night at this hotel last 30December and was a good stay.
The room was very comfortable, despite the furniture was a little old fashioned.
The Wifi worked well and was free. The breakfast was very satisfatory, with fruits, breads, juices.
As we arrived late at night, we had a dinner at the same restaurant and the food was delicious: prove the sweet rice as desert, as well as the bacalhau, you won't regret.
The only downside is the location: it's near the major hospitals nice if you are a patient, but far from the city center, where there is the university, the Medieval Church, Se steps, etc.
I would stay here again!

The pros:
large and clean rooms with free WiFi
nice ample breakfast
the restaurant is good, try the octopuss in red wine
closed door parking (you can negotiate not paying for it)

The cons:
A little bit out the excitement part. It is at the top of the hill, which means a long way up to go back from the center.
No gym. They have two rooms with cardio machines next to the bed !!! I had never seen that before. You have to pay more for these rooms. There is no nice place for running around the hotel. It is all heavy traffic. The best is to run down to the river and run along it.
Hence, I found it a bit pricey for what it provides.

Room Tip: Get rooms at the back, it is much quieter. Best are corner ones at the end of the corridor.

Dear Sir,
Thank you for choosing Tryp Coimbra for your stay and for sharing your opinion. It help us to improve our services.
In fact we don´t have Gym. The reason why we have rooms with cardio machines is because it is a concept of Melia chain. If you go to another hotel of the chain you also have that offert. Those kind of rooms (Fitness or Premium rooms) are at client disposal with a supplement rate.
We hope to receive you again in our hotel and also that you may choose other hotels of our chain to your future stays.

Hotel Tryp Coimbra’s rooms look like they are from the 1970’s with an updated flat screen TV. The rooms are in good condition and the hotel is very well maintained. The free breakfast is simple but good, they have cereal, meats, fruits, juices and will make you eggs to order also the hotel comes with free Wifi, in Europe this is a big savings.
To conserve power and to let the desk know you’re out of the room there is a special keyslot in each room that turns on the room’s power, your room key activates the power , the hotel only gives 1 key per couple which makes things a little difficult especially if you want to charge something while you are out of the room.
My room didn’t have a view, I overlooked the front of the hotel which is on a main street, it does get a little noisy in the mornings but the traffic in Portugal is very minimal.
The dining room in the hotel is good and there are several restaurants in walking distance from the hotel.

I stopped at the Hotel on my way to Porto. The room was nice and ample. The Hotel is old fashioned, however, it is comfortable. the staff was attentive and friendly. It is a good option for one night.
No restaurants in a walk distance.
Only, I point as negative that I was able to heard the conversations from the room next to me due to the wall's thin
