Hotel Astoria, hotel in Coimbra

Set in a historic building that counts as one of Coimbra’s architectural landmarks, Hotel Astória overlooks the Mondego River in the historic Baixa district. It offers rooms with classic décor.

Location was great for visiting central Coimbra and the university. The hotel is of the Grand Old Style, and breakfast reflected that, a delightful classical dining room and settings, great service. The toaster was a bit erratic - first slice came out white, the next brown, the third on fire - but that added to the charrm!

FAQs about hotels in Coimbra







A Seat of Learning and Royalty

Portugal’s medieval capital, and a pioneer of fado music alongside its modern counterpart Lisbon, Coimbra is a vibrant university city with a good helping of historic sights.

The university is the country’s oldest and its attractive buildings cover a small hill overlooking the Mondego River. The institution has an excellent science museum, the ornate Joanina Library, and one of the world’s oldest botanical gardens which contributes to the lush landscape.

The midweek nightlife in the city’s bars and restaurants is popular with students, while shopping options range from the stores of the CoimbraShopping complex to smaller boutiques on cobbled streets in the historic Baixa district.

The medieval centre houses the museum of Coimbran sculptor Machado de Castro and the Old Cathedral, begun under the reign of the first Portuguese King, Afonso Henriques. He is buried in Santa Cruz Monastery, while the tomb of a later queen – Elizabeth of Aragon – is in the Monastery of Santa Clara-a-Nova. She founded this hilltop convent to replace flood-prone Santa Clara-a-Velha below. Between them is Portugal dos Pequenitos where Portugal’s main monuments are reproduced in miniature.

Nearby is Quinta das Lágrimas, a 19th-century mansion that is now a luxury hotel on Booking.com. Also available are cheap hostels and guest houses near the 2 main train stations.

    We were lucky enough to arrive during the last week of term for the university students, which made the town lively and interesting. The tour of the university , particularly the library, was fascinating. It was also lovely to walk through the old town, eat pastries, listen to music and absorb the atmosphere. Sitting in the Botanic gardens with a book in the afternoon sunshine was an opportunity to relax in otherwise busy days.

    Coimbra is a delightful town to visit.

    Coimbra is a delightful town to visit. The town is architecturally pleasing, with clean, safe, streets, and a refreshing lack of graffiti. There is a good choice of hotels and restaurants, and those that we patronized were of good quality, with helpful staff, all of whom, in our experience spoke good English. Recommended

    Coimbra is a great city to visit and use as base to explore other locations in central Portugal. Make sure you wear comfy shoes, the cobbles streets and walking is often up steep hills. The library is worth viewing at the university, but make sure you book in advance or get there early, as they have limited tickets and time slots. The parks are beautiful along the river and worth taking the time to visit. If adventuring out, highly recommend Obidos and the Buddha Eden garden, as well as Aveiro and Costa Nova.

    Coimbra has a lot to offer travelers.

    Coimbra has a lot to offer travelers. Centro (old part of town) is very lovely and has a lot to see. Many small interesting roads and pathways to walk around and see beautiful buildings, historical churchs, shops, cafes...Restaurants are reasonably priced and there is a variety of different cuisines to accommodate everyone. We stayed one night, but could have easily stayed another night.

    Appartment is located in the beautufull old center of Coimbra, in vicinity there are many cafes and restaurants and it is very easy to reach the University buildings from there. App is big enough, comfortable, clean and very nicely decorated, great view from the small balcony and hidden garden on the back side. I understand the same owner also runs nearby hotel Oslo, so you check in in the hotel and you can also store luggage there if needed. All personel is very kind and helpfull!

    Everything about this place is fantastic. Price. Value. Location. Staff. Rooftop! If you don’t show up to Coimbra with a plan, no problem. The front desk staff will set you up with an “itinerary” and a list of things to do. The 5th floor room with balcony and city view is more than worth the cost; however, the rooftop and the spectacular city is available to all guests regardless of room type. Bonus: free parking in the nearby underground parking garage. Muito obrigado Hotel Oslo!

    We had a very enjoyable experience staying here while visiting Coimbra. It was nice to have our own little apartment vs a hotel room, and we enjoyed breakfast at the table under the beautiful windows in the morning while we planned our day. The location is fantastic and is right next to the aqueduct, botanic gardens (must visit!!) and University of Coimbra. We found several nice restaurants and pubs nearby, too. We would not hesitate to stay here again!

    The owner and staff here were some of the friendliest folks we met during our ten days in Portugal. They're super welcoming and give you a concise rundown of what to see in Coimbra (including a map and walking instructions). There's a wonderful little courtyard to enjoy a little wine and snack. As others have mentioned, the breakfast was a phenomenal spread with fresh fruits, cheeses, pastries, meats, coffee, tea and fresh-squeezed juice.

    Best stay in Portugal, the location was amazing. The scenery is unmatched and the staff were extremely helpful. The place looked even better than the pictures posted, was absolutely delighted with this stay. Of course you need a car but was a 6min drive to the city centre, loads to do and see in the city centre although the university you have to get tickets for everything and the times weren’t ideal. So I’d advice booking in advance.

    Having this linked to Hotel Oslo was excellent as the staff were very accommodating in changing our room as we had expected a sofa bed as listed in the description (as we are friends traveling together & hoped not to share one bed). However, it was not a sofa bed but the staff were very helpful. The Rooftop lounge at Hotel Oslo was an exceptional view of Coimbra & a great way to enjoy your lovely Port! Great location, amenities.

    The property is well situated between the University and the old town. The building is from the 1800’s- so cool. Not sure if the stone walls are from the original building - awesome nevertheless. We thought it was great value. They brought us breakfast to the room- good variety of buns, scrambled eggs, yogurts and fruit. Great views of the city of Coimbra. Will definitely recommend this hotel.

    Hotel Vitoria is conveniently located, exceptionally clean but simple, the staff are really helpful and welcoming and more than willing to give us tips to enhance our time in Coimbra. For some reason, no doubt a fault of mine, only one room came with breakfast so we, in the double room, paid for our breakfast, which was varied and very good. I would recommend this hotel without condition.

    A top establishment. Right opposite Coimbra Town Railway Station yet we heard zero train noise. It is within walking distance of good restaurants and I highly recommend Tartufo Italian. The shower was the best we have had in Portugal! it is air conditioned however you can open the windows if you wish. The bar on the roof has good drinks a a nice view of the city, Highly recommended.

There was also an other activities room for kids. - The Breakfast was great and had a large variety of both savoury and sweet. - Can walk on river front from hotel to city centre - Had some discounts for sightseeing like "Portugal dos Pequenitos"

    The location ais great, very central! As Coimbra is quite small is a perfect place to stay for a weekend. The studio was cleaned, and has basic thing in the kitchen so enough to cook few basic meals. Perfect for a weekend or a pitstop while travelling trough Portugal. Also, there was an AC in the studio which helped a lot.
