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.

Not bad - but not good.

Posted Jul 5, 2017 on Hotels
First offered room was very small. Long corridor into corner room that two suitcases did not fit into. Very basic and unacceptable as two nights planned. Replacement room was marginally larger although following feedback management contacted me and insisted some people prefer a tiny corner room. Whatever! Food at restaurant was good and reasonable selection. Our room after being out all day was only cleaned after we returned about 5:30pm. A second room we had booked for rest of family was not even done as cleaner came after 6pm. 4 star - sorry not with that service.

Dated room with nice bathroom but shabby neighborh

Posted Jul 3, 2017 on Hotels
I prepaid a high price for a superior single with river view, but the hotel insisted my booking is only a superior room. After a long argument, I was given an ordinary room with river view. The river/canal view was indeed in small prints when you browse the room types but did not show in hotels.com confirmation. Manager and reception lady sticked to their rules and would not trust my words. Unpleasant start! Room has a big balcony but no chair or table. No coffee or teamaker. River view is really not worth the extra bucks, especially with a big rundown building on the left. Carpet is a dark brown color and hides any uncleanness. Room is also dated, 3-star feeling except the nice bathroom and tub. Hotel is quite far from old city and isolated. Unsafe to walk back at night. Trivolio has much better rooms and is at the edge of old town. Do be aware: safe deposit box is placed right above the refrigerator. Heat generated from the frig almost damaged my Laptop computer. The hotel needs to immediately change this design and also move the small prints to the Type of ROOM, so that the right info shows in booking.
