Pleasant, modern hotel on river

Posted Jul 9, 2017
Pros: Good value
Location: Enjoyed eating at Fangas, very good tapas style restaurant.
Hotel is a bit hard to drive to given all the one way streets in the vicinity. Thought parking was included, but we had to use street parking which was okay since no charge for this during night. We walked to city center, University. Not much in restaurants right near hotel. Coimbra does have hills. Hotel staff very helpful given I booked for wrong night. They didn't hassle us or make me feel dumb. Gave us the room rate we booked, no change fees. I greatly appreciate their flexibility and understanding. And I will be sure to note if calendar I am using starts on Sunday or on Monday...

Good hotel for the price with a nice view

Posted Jul 7, 2017
The hotel is good enough for the price, it is close to the city center and has a great view. The facilities look updated and the breakfast was a highlight, with a great choice of fruits, eggs, cereals, breads, etc.

Average hotel in Coimbra.

Posted Jun 27, 2017
Pros: This hotel is good value for money; however, the installations need updating. The hotel feels a bit tired and in need of improvements. Nice staff.
Cons: Some basic updating of the installations would be an improvement.
Location: About a 15-minute walk from the centre of the town in an area that is not terribly attractive.
This hotel is good value for money but its installations are only average in terms of quality and comfort. It is perfectly adequate for an overnight stay; just don't expect too much. The staff is very nice and helpful.

Nice comfortable hotel but a bit pricey

Posted Apr 28, 2017
All very good except breakfast selection which is just a bit limiting. Good to have more greens, salad and perhaps omelette. Mushrooms were salty.

Bad location, not close to old town or restaurants

Posted Mar 21, 2017
Pros: Staff is great, rooms nice with A/C and river views
Location: Bad location and not convenient to sites and old university and library.
It is a nice hotel with nice river views. A very large hotel primarily for tour buses. Great breakfast! A/C works in rooms but none in public spaces... The staff is wonderful!
