Nice hotel, especially if you are on a business trip. Very easy to reach by car, but quite far from the train station and city center. Very comfortable room and big bathroom. I must say that the wi-fi connection in room was very bad. My room was at the end of the corridor and this maybe the reason. Buffet breakfast...

Excellent breakfast,clean rooms and bathroom (although a bit gloomy and simple), very nice pool and the staff was kind and helpful. The architecture of the place is quite modern and in generl the hotel has lots of potential. Only 10 minutes away on foot from the town center.

Ideal for a budget stay. Apparently a favorite of large bus tour groups for its economy. With all the great cities in Portugal, we loved Porto, Lisbon, and Sintra, no need to visit this University town. We had the misfortune of being there for 1 evening with heavy rain, all the restaurants were closed, no place to park and after...

Nice modern hotel with an amazing lobby and bar. The receptionist stroke me with her extremely warm welcoming and her simplicity. She was so helpful and gave us good advice (Too bad i forgot her name). Rooms are simple yet modern with all necessary amenities. We had a view over the pool which was ok. The weather on that day...

This is a large modern hotel about 15 minutes' walk from the centre of Coimbra. It has the advantages of great leisure facilities and well-appointed bedrooms. Staff were helpful and knowledgeable. However on the nights we were there, the hotel was catering for large bus parties on overnight stays so the restaurant was packed in the evening and at breakfast....
