“Good cheap hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Central, close to the train station. Very quiet. Small rooms, but nice with old fashion furniture. Good value (at the least at the rates they offer offseason). I didn't stay for the breakfast because the only public transport to Bucaco/Luso in the morning is the 7:35 am bus (rural public transport is very poor in Portugal).

You can't go wrong with Hotel Domus, its a stone's throw from the train station, clean, quiet, safe. A lovely family run hotel in the center of the city. The room was very economical and much nicer then i expected for the price. Good breakfast too.
I would highly recommend this place.
Cheers!

Perfect location by the train station and within walking distance to everything. The owner was very nice and accommodating. Breakfast was adequate with bread, cereals, juices and coffee/tea (although with all the bakeries and cafes around, it's kind of disappointing not to get to eat something more special). My room was right next to the sign-in desk and there was a lot of noise in the middle of the night that woke me up. This is a great little pensione, but make sure to ask for a room that's not by the front desk.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the upper floors away from the front desk.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel in July 2013. Excellent location within the city, very close to Coimbra A train station. Good base for exploring the city. The staff was very nice. One of them even offered us some prunes one night! The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable, although our bed was a bit squeaky. A/C was working well. There was free wifi internet which was working well most of the time (sometimes not working in some areas of our room though).

The biggest problem is that the rooms are really not soundproof. Definitely avoid if you're sensitive to noise or a light sleeper. We were close to the lobby area and could hear everything that was being said outside our room. Luckily, the area is really quiet at night.

Room Tip: Ask to visit many rooms as they are all quite different (in terms of bathroom size/setup, decoration...

For budget travelers, this pension is perfect. It was very clean, quiet (courtyard room) and there was air conditioning. It was very hot so the air conditioning saved us. There was a light breakfast, bread, ham, cheese, and coffee. The location was near all the sights. We had a car so it was a bit difficult to find the place. Once we did, we parked in front of the hotel to unload and the reception told us where to park. Have your parking ticket stamped by the hotel before you pick up your car so you can get a reduced rate.

Stayed in a double room with two beds. The room was spacious for two adults and had a newly remodeled bathroom. Breakfast was provided (coffee, juice, yogurt and bread). Location was great with easy walking to all of Coimbra's main sites.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

We read a lot of reviews for accommodation in Coimbra and found that the better places were incredibly expensive while more affordably priced places generally had negative reviews. Residencial Domus was one of the few exceptions - while it's a more budget-conscious place with no frills, we were generally happy with our experience. The location is fantastic - a one minute walk from the train station, a few minutes away from the main sights in the city and close to restaurants and shops. The rooms were basic but clean and decently comfortable. The service was good - the staff was helpful and courteous. Breakfast was decent although not particularly diverse, although one wouldn't expect a wide range of options for breakfast at a budget-type place like this.

We only stayed one night, and Residencial Domus was good for a short stay. If we were staying in Coimbra for a few days, we might have wanted something a bit more upscale, but for a night or 2, I'd definitely recommend Residencial Domus.
