The hotel's appearance is a bit outdated especially in the guest rooms but the staff was friendly (we had a fantastic bartender) and the room was comfortable.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.

They can cater for large tour groups. A most active and smiley porter with voluminous energy dragging and pulling heavy bags. I dragged ours! Receptionist was overwhelmed and as such not smiley!

We chose this hotel because of the free parking. The hotel has an old fashioned atmosphere with white lightings in room and in the hotel. Outdated decorations in the room but room was spacious. Cleanliness was average because I saw body hair in the bathroom. Because of its location, it provides a nice view over the city from our room.... More

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.
