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.

Proximity to historic area and Coimbra university was terrific and it was close to the river and restaurants. I liked the historic nature of the hotel itself. Even though I don’t like elevators it was definitely a treat to ride in such an old fashioned one. The honour bar was nice to have and staff were helpful.

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.

    I had never heard of Coimbra, only went to watch the European Triathlon Championships to support my daughter and partner. What a beautiful town it is. At first it looks a bit run down, there is regeneration going on by the river. It had a real charm to it, a university town steeped in history at the top of the old town. Didn't realise it was the capital in the 12th century! Lovely cafe's in tiny squares with delicious food and drink at a very reasonable price. The people of Coimbra were so friendly and helpful. Fell in love with Porto Tonica! (a long drink of white port, tonic water). Worth a visit for a long weekend.

    Coimbra is an interesting city and in many ways is ldoesn’t realise how good it is.Incredible museum and university with entry fees kept at a minimum. If you do struggle with mobility it is very hilly and could present a problem.Trains are very cheap so city hopping is an option but be organised on the fast Trains which can only be taken from Coimbra B.Best find and possibly out of term time is the University cafe in the art department,the bargain of the trip!

    Coimbra is a charming small town.

    Coimbra is a charming small town. It has a long promenade along the riverbank and a main high street in the centre with cafés, bars and shops. There are many more hidden away along the side roads so it’s good to explore. It is however VERY hilly, take comfortable shoes suitable for walking up steep hills and steps! If, like us, your accommodation is high up there are many Uber rides available - they are quick and cheap. The locals are very friendly and helpful- some speak a little English but not all so translation apps came in useful.

    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.

    We were travelling through Spain and Portugal and wanted to stop somewhere that would allow us to chill, re-charge the batteries, enjoy a good meal and not have to pay an extortionate price. This hotel met every expectation for us. Great facilities, friendly service and a fantastic meal in the restaurant. Really easy to find just a few kilometres from the motorway.

    Loved our stay thanks Ana, beautifully presented room and the extra little touches made it special - the welcome drink with crackers and jam, the fruit bowl and to top it off the exquisitely presented breakfast basket. A balcony to eat meals on. Beds were comfortable. Everything was perfect. Would return if I'm back in Portugal.

    The charm and history of the building, the restaurant (one of the best in the region), the pool, and last but not least the staff. While hospitality is very good in Portugal, the team of Quinta das Lagrimas was simply the best on my trip. SO kind, helpful and professional. Bravo!
