Situated outside of the center, but as the town is small, a taxi should not cost much for getting up to the university. I arrived by car, and could find a free parking space outside the hotel. This is a very modern hotel. Everything was clean and the atmosphere was very nice. No complaints regarding the room. The lobby is... More

Excellent hotel in an unremarkable city. The junior suite is enormous and very comfortable. The breakfast was the best we had in Portugal with a multitude of choices including delicious breads and pastries, cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, fresh juice, and eggs cooked to order. Wifi is free but only in the lobby.

This hotel was in a great location just a short walk from the University. Once we parked our car we did not need to use it until we left Coimbra to continue our travels.

Can be a little tricky to find however as it is tucked back off the main road with no signage. Wifi only available in lobby also a downside but does not distract from the quality of the hotel.

We stayed only for 1 night as we passed through Coimbra. We had a car, so took the short drive to the nearby town centre, to try to get some food.
