Reviewed 23 November 2013

I had the need for a night stop in Coimbra and found this option for the budget. Well located, nice clean rooms and all the things you need from a 4 star hotel. Very good & recommended. Large pool, good continental breakfast for additional 7 euro per pax. Booked thru an online site with a rate around 50€.

Stayed in this business-like hotel for my husbands work trip. It has a view of the river, but as other reviewers have said it is not near the downtown. I walked from the hotel to the main square which is closer to a mile away. The front desk staff speak very good English. Our room on the 2nd floor was...

Not in the historic center, but easy to find and to depart from if arriving by car. Modern, large, lacks some character. free wifi only in the public areas. Large, comfortable room and bed. Nice, varied breakfast, with sparkling wine! Nice for a short stay.

We stayed for one night on 22nd October whilst in transit through Portugal and Spain. The hotel was the usual standard I usually expect from Vila Gale Hotels but we never had a wink of sleep all night! During the day, we discovered, and watched, a traditional event throughout the town staged every year by Coimbra University students. (The oldest...

We added Coimbra at the last minute on our trip to Portugal. Picked the hotel because the rate was good, had parking and a gym. The location is not necessarily great for seeing the sites in Coimbra but if you have car the combination of parking and location works out well. It's only a 15 minute walk to the center....

Hotel with a good quality / cost relation. Most part of the rooms with view to Mondego river. Although near a train railway, no noise is listened. The breakfast is very complete and served in a long and beatiful room.

My first experience in this chain of hotels. It generally met my expectation and totally worth the room rates. It's walking distance to city center and close to the river.
