  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Close to the university well maintained and comfortable. A little hard to find even with the help of a friendly driver. Once there excellent accommodation although a little bit of a hike to the other parts of town.

Clean modern room in Coimbra University area. In an elevated area, my room was a multi-floor walkup. Place looks newly renovated with white melamine look popular at budget hotels in Portugal. Very helpful staff.
