Ok, you gotta walk on the hill, but gosh, the world is made of hills, and Coimbra is on a hill. So, if in other reviews you read that the difficulty is the "geographical condition" of this place that is an evidence for the entire city. (of course, if you want to get bored you'd better go away from Protugal,...

Our stay in this B&B in the old town was great: Anja gave us a choice of rooms, and we opted for the one at the top of the house, with the view over the town from the bathroom. Her town map and advice were very welcome as our stay in Coimbra was short, and the breakfast was great, very...

This bed and breakfast has nine rooms and is located off the beaten track on a small side stree very close to the university. We took a taxi from the bus station to the house, and it cost 6 Euros. There is a steep hill leading to the inn, and you will be walking over cobblestone streets. We stayed in...

It's worth staying at the Casa Pombal to encounter her charming welcome, sound advice, and excellent breakfast. We left something important behind, and she ingeniously tracked us down and sent it on to us at a later stop. The Casa Pombal is unapologetically a budget lodging: steep stairs, small rooms, bad lighting, thin pillows. But the views are spectacular and...

We followed Casa Pombal's advice and took a taxi from the bus station - it was well worth the 5 euros. It is a very steep climb; after the first day we took the elevator which takes you from the market area to the corner just down the street from Casa Pombal - this allowed us to save our energy...

Be prepared for a STEEP climb to this B&B, which is in the town (most others are on the outskirts of Coimbra). But it's a lovely place: everything is clean, and (unusually for Portugal) there was a hairdryer in our bathroom, which was useful. The highlight here is the breakfast buffet. We had a choice of eggs, Dutch cheeses, chocolate...

We stayed in Coimbra for 2 nights and I booked Casa Pombal by looking at Tripadvisor. I think previous reviews are pretty accurate in that you may or may not like the place depending on your personality. It IS the only guest house in the old part and is quaint and quirky - lots of narrow internal staircases and fun...

After having traveled all across Spain and Portugal I can honestly say the lovely dutch ladies who run Casa Pombal were the most helpful wonderful patrons we encountered. They helped us make reservations at our next destination, gave us travel advice, and were very well informed on the local goings-on. The location is perfect for a walking tour of the...

A pleasant place, quaint and atmospheric. Very friendly owners with lots of helpful tips. Our room was not big, but spotlessly clean and the view from the top floor was great. The pillows could be more comfortable, but this is very subjective, of course. The breakfast was quite good and the Dutch people who miss their favourite pindakaas and hagelslag...

The place is in the middle of the old town, which is a 15 minute walk to the pedestrian street and most restaurants. It is a pleasant walk though. The room is small but functional. They cleaned my room everyday and even folded my own cloths! The decoration is corny, but it is funny! You have the feeling of sleeping...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa Pombal is a small bed & breakfast on the top of a hill in the historical heart of Coimbra.

All rooms have heating and most rooms have private bathrooms. Some rooms have a beautiful view over the city and the river Mondego. Breakfast is Included in the price. ... more   less
