It feel like taking a leap back 50 or more years, this hotel has a wonderful charme with its all wooden high rooms and creeking floors, even the elevator, though renovated for security standards, reminds of the past, Rooms are very spacious and quiet, clean. Breakfast extensive. Parking nearby. Staff friendly and helpful. Location very central. Great value for money!!!

The Staff is very friendly, location is great, but furniture, carpets and beds are very very old, seems as an hotel. Forget about fall asleep right away: very noisy inside due to thin walls and from the outside due some loud music around. There is no parking at all, even outside. We used the municipal parking across the road for... More

The good things about this hotel are: 500 metres from the train station, just around the corner from the main square and restaurants etc and opposite the river. Be warned, you cannot check in till 3pm, the reception staff are less than helpful, the hotel is grubby, tired and basic. The breakfast is presentable even if the service is non... More

Hotel is easy walking distance from the train station and the main street with lots of restaurants and cafes is just around the corner. Our room was comfortable, we had 2 single beds. Plenty of storage space throughout. Included a small enclosed balcony. We face the main street so there was a little bit of traffic noise and light shining... More

Stayed at the Astoria hotel, which has an old world charm with a modern approach, clean room and good Breakfast. Recommended I will certainly be going back. Close to the city centre (very) good views of the Mondego river close to restaurants and bars

Stayed in Astoria when visiting Coimbra for 2 days. Located at the edge of the Old Town, Main shopping street starts around the corner, restaurants at one / two minute walk. Covered car park is available at 200 meters at €15,- / 24 hrs (Avenida Fernao Magelhaes). Hotel is about 100 years old, partly modernized. Still there are cracking floors,... More

First off let me say that I enjoyed my stay in the Hotel Astoria, the breakfast was good the rooms were spacious and the location was just perfect. Having said that I have to warn you it is like stepping back in time. It's not a quaint hotel made to look old. It actually is a like walking into a... More

Spent five nights at this beautiful hotel. I read lots of reviews before staying and would say that if you want clean modern sleek lines in your hotel choice, this is not for you; however if you want beauty, charm and an elegance in your hotel, this is for you. Original furniture, wonderful colours. My room was on the 4th... More

This was my third time in Coimbra. I was glad that I'd chosen the Astoria to stay. The location of the hotel is central, next to the river and a couple minutes' walk to the train station. But most special is the charm exuded. The outside look is not deceiving, once you step inside you're transformed back in time. The... More

Nice hotel with perfect location. Frozen in time, which creates an atmosphere to the traveller, however at the price of little convenience in the rooms. The view (4th floor room overlooking the University hill) is fantastic. Breakfast was good, but no vegetables present. The service is also good and friendly. The best location in the city.
