Sapientia Boutique hotel it’s ideally situated to explore Coimbra’s university and town old quarters. Rooftop offers spectacular views over the town, the river and the not so distant hills. Even the nearby former Royal Palace sighting can be enjoyed. Great photo opportunity. Breakfast was delicious and generous. It was offered in strict time slots to keep social distance. Hot and cold, both Portuguese delicacies and continental/English options were made available. Spotless clean, facilities were ready to facilitate compliance with the strict COVID protocols in earnest. The staff was knowledgeable and extremely attentive. We occupied a huge, beautiful, well appointed suite, with a small kitchenette fully functional, a lounge, a good size bathroom, excellent bed linen and comfy mattress. The bedroom elevated from the lounge through few stairs, with very high ceilings, big windows and smart, modern decoration invited to relax in comfort. Highly recommended.

Top notch hotel. Perfect location. Very well trained staff who go out of their way to be helpful. Views that are stunning. Breakfast that was superb in every way. This should be a 5 star hotel BUT for some very simple things lacking. Shelves. Drawers. Places to store one’s clothes! Was forced to keep clothes in suitcase.

We stayed here 2 nights and loved it. Staff are top notch. location couldn’t be better. Spotlessly clean throughout. An oasis of relaxation in a busy town. We had a junior suite, which was very large, invluding a sofa, coffee maker, and mini kitchen. we had a large balcony with table and chairs, overlooking the courtyard and century-old walnut tree. We had no issues with noise. Bed and bathroom were great, though we wished for better lighting. Each evening we went up to their nice rooftop terrace and enjoyed the sunset. We ate both evenings at the courtyard restaurant and savored every mouthful. Coimbra was a delight to visit, and the Sapientia Boutique Hotel is the perfect place to dtay.

Great rooftop terrace with a view and creative room decor with references to writers and poets. Good size rooms. Parking on the street next to the city wall. Was a bit hard to find as we missed the turn into the alley and had to drive around several times. Great location near university. Staff is very friendly.

Great service and very nice room. Our room had a nice balcony with a view of the city. Breakfast had plenty of variety and was delivered to our room (because of Covid) so we were able to enjoy it on our balcony. We had a nice dinner at the restaurant as well.
