Thank you for your kind words Santiago! Hope to see you soon! Safe travels :)


You really couldn't wish for a better location right in the center of Coimbra. It's a very beautiful monumental building which is well kept. The breakfast is quite decent and the sanitary facilities look quite good, though they weren't always very clean. The main gripe I had was that it was very quit. Nothing of note was going on and interacting with other guests didn't go very well. Also, there was little social interaction with the staff. Maybe it was the time of the year though.

Thank you for your words Meindert. During the low season we are not so busy and we understand your point. Come back during the Summer and you will experience a completely different atmosphere :) Safe travels :)


Very secure, great breakfast, its close to everything, although it was at the highest place of the city, so you have to walk up the hill a lot before getting there. But the staff at late afternoon/night wasn't friendly at all, and the internet wireless was very weak.

Thanks for your review Karine :) As you saw, Coimbra is the city of the hills! The internet conexion is already working in his maximum power. Safe travels!


We stayed for one night. Great stay, room was a good size and well set up with lighting, furniture, power sockets etc. Friendly staff, good breakfast, there was only one toilet and shower on our floor which wasn't a problem in the low season but could get busy in summer. Loved the way the building was decorated with reference to its former use. Location is very good in the centre near the university and museums, with parking a short walk up the hill. Would happily stay here again.
