Hotel is well situated not far from railway, bus depot and old town. Very quiet area, university within walking distance. Breakfast is one of the best. Staff helpful, rooms very large. Great value. Would recommend.

This is a great and very neat hotel to stay if you're in Coimbra. The rooms are big and clean. You can open the room windows and the bathroom has a big space.The personnel are very welcoming and sympathetic. Didn't have breakfast, but if I'm not mistaken, it'd add 14€/night to the room price. From this area you'll easily reach...

Spent 2 nights there in a business meeting. Overall, the hotel is modern and elegant, with an overall dance theme. Friendly staff, and a nice room with a beautiful view over the river. It was clean and comfortable. I didn't have time to use the pool (and it was raining, anyway, most of the time), nonetheless it looked really inviting!...

I stayed here only 1 night in a business meeting. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. The room was big and nice with a enormous bathtub and very clean.

The staff is very helpful and accomodating. The location is very close to the bus station which was a plus for us but a little isolated at night so very quiet. The breakfast is very good and the pool area looks good although we didn't have a chance to use it. Very clean and neat.

A modern clean hotel, about a 20 minute walk into the centre of Coimbra. Breakfasts were excellent, but we did not dine at the hotel in the evening. Good facilities available for guest use, we used the outside sun loungers by the pool. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for a stay.

Situated outside of the center, but as the town is small, a taxi should not cost much for getting up to the university. I arrived by car, and could find a free parking space outside the hotel.

Excellent hotel in an unremarkable city. The junior suite is enormous and very comfortable. The breakfast was the best we had in Portugal with a multitude of choices including delicious breads and pastries, cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, fresh juice, and eggs cooked to order. Wifi is free but only in the lobby.
