It’s been a few years that I’ve been staying at this hotel for one night (annually).
They continue to keep their standard and professional staff. Have tried several types of rooms so I can tell you they are nice and comfortable although they deserve a small revamp...!

This place looks a bit daunting from the outside but it’s a good, modern place with good facility and very lovely staff. The room is comfortable with all mod cons. Pillows could have perhaps been better quality for this level of hotel. Plenty of plugs, functional air con and internet, opening window and good modern bathroom with powerful shower.
The bar staff were extremely helpful and recommended some excellent wine for us. Breakfast was very good standard with charming polite staff and a large selection of high-quality fresh food. For this standard of breakfast, I would suggest an improvement would be to have yoghurt fresh in bowls as opposed to plastic pots. This would be positive as the yoghurts were not great. Also Early Grey tea and availability of tea pots would improve the offering. Lastly, rather than sliced packet bread, a selection of fresh-baked loaves would have been nice.
Outdoor pool: lovely! Please get more sun loungers though. A great place to be and plenty of space to swim.
Overall we had a great stay and I would recommend this hotel.

The hotel is very well located. You can walk to places of interest. Breakfast is nice. Rooms are ample and clean even though they look a little old. They were renewing the wall paper therefore the smell was too strong. They have a good parking lot. Overall is a nice place to stay.

Vila Gale, Coimbra is a corporate hotel with very nice rooms, good amenities, pleasant staff and good location within walking distance of old town. Our hotel rate included parking which is under the hotel. It is a bit tight getting into the parking but with a few back and forths we did it! Our room was on the fifth floor facing the pool with a balcony. The king sized bed had nice bedding and was very comfortable. A nice touch was the delivery of fresh green apples and bottled water at 5:00 each evening. We enjoyed the outdoor pool and indoor hot tub. Breakfast was yummy and service was good. They even made custom omelets! Staff recommended Dux Restaurant, which was an easy 5 minute walk, and it was very, very nice. We would recommend Vila Gale Coimbra!

I would say that it is an ok hotel. Above the average breakfast. Rooms need some remodeling (e.g. outdated carpet). Nevertheless, as per my researches I am not sure if it is easy to get something much better in Coimbra.
