I stayed in room 115 as part of the Cosmos tour and found this hotel absolutely amazing. Sure it could be updated a bit as the carpets have seen better days but the breakfast buffet and the dinner buffet was brilliant. I am a vegan but could find adequate vegan options. The view from my hotel balcony was something else....

Hotel is clean but dated decor. Buffet style food when serving a large group. Unsure if you can order from the menu. On top of a hill so very nice views of the town and University. Large car park if you are driving.

This hotel located at the hill top, facing the river. The river view room offers spectacular view to the city. The nicely design and layout makes the room very comfortable, even the room size is less than 200 sq. ft. From our perspective, carpet flooring is the only inconvenience, as our preference is always wooden floor. Café for breakfast on...

The hotel's appearance is a bit outdated especially in the guest rooms but the staff was friendly (we had a fantastic bartender) and the room was comfortable. Somehow we lucked out with a room that had an amazing view of Coimbra which was worth the price of admission.

The hotel is located overlooking Coimbra (ask for a room with front view!). They have a free shuttle taking guests (even after check out) to/from the lower city. The room is standard and comfortable. Their restaurant is very good, and you can enjoy the view. Nice, overall.
