My wife and I booked the Casa da Alta apartment when we attended a Wold Academic Congress in Coimbra.
We did have some difficulties finding the apartment due to the number of one way streets in the area. Once we found the apartment, we availed our selves to the on-street parking that was available right outside the apartment. there is no elevator, so be prepared to use the stairs.
Casa da Alta is located directly above the main downtown area and is a short 10 minute walk down to the many shops and sites. The facilities are easy to find once you have your bearings and the bus goes past the door.
Our room was on the second floor and was very elegantly appointed and offered everything we needed for our one week stay in Coimbra. This older building has been very tastefully renovated and restored. The bedroom was large and overlooked the street. A room over looking the garden would be preferred.
The bathroom was somewhat small but very functional as was the stting room. The kitchen facilities, which were 'all found' allowed us to have meals when we chose to do so, coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. A small welcome basket awaited us upon our arrival.The apartment was the perfect size for us and we enjoyed it immensely.
The staff were very, very helpful and provided us with all kinds of asssitance and guidance. Breakfast can also be had on-site; as can using the outdoor area for small parties and gatherings. A great place to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun goes down.
