We visited the top three hotels in Coimbra, and definitely this is the best. The rooms are nice and quiet, large and comfortable. Breakfast is very good with lots of choices. All staff are very friendly and willing to help and make your stay memorable. The facility is located 3 miles away from the city center, but a taxi would...

Although not a top hotel, it is quite nice and offers very good value for the services provided. Room was rather large, there was a mini bar with beverages, something that is becoming somehow rare in many 4 star hotels. Professional staff and a very good breakfast buffet (included in room rate)

New hotel in Coimbra with large rooms, 15 min walk to downtown area and a 5 min drive to the Forum shopping mall. Wifi is free in the lobby but not in the rooms - go figure! Average breakfast, toiletries of average quality, comfortable bed. I was on the second floor, which is supposed to be all non-smoking. However, the...

If you by any reason must stay in Coimbra, Vila Gale, must be the best place to be. I havent stayed in any other hotel in this small University-town, but I really liked Vila Gale. The rooms are new and quite large. Aircondition, minibar, flatscreen-tv, and great amenities. Its clean and well-kept. 24h room-service and actually quite reasonable prices. Great...

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.

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 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.
