Hotel Ibis Coimbra Centro, hotel in Coimbra

Hotel Ibis Coimbra Centro overlooks the Mondego River and is 984 feet from Coimbra A Train Station. The historical town center of Coimbra is 656 feet away. Free WiFi is available.

The location of the hotel is good; it is just a short walk to the center of the city. The room was "no frills", which I expect from the Ibis chain, but it was in good condition overall. The hotel staff was very nice and also very helpful.

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.

We spent two nights here and found the location perfect. It was so close to amazing restaurants, bars, cafes and shopping malls. The view to the river was beautiful and fun to watch activity on the streets. Reception staff were friendly and helpful, nothing seemed like too much trouble and we enjoyed the candy available there! The atmosphere and decor of this old hotel was like stepping back in time to a bygone era. We felt privileged to experience such a treasure of Coimbra. The lift was a highlight and we laughed every time we used it, watching ourselves sitting on the leather clad bench. Our room was huge with plenty of space and a small reception room upon entering with high ceilings.

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.

    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. 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.

    Five-minute walk from Coimbra A train station; online pix meant we knew exactly which building to look for. This is a charming and old-fashioned hotel that antique-lovers should really enjoy; it's like being on the set of a 1920s or earlier movie, and has an old-fashioned wood-lined elevator, complete with folding bench. We loved the place, but ... The one perturbing thing was the lack of in-room Wifi, but there are lots of comfortable spaces to connect on the main floor. For a couple of vacation days, though, this was not a big deal.

    Coimbra was an unexpected pleasure to visit.

    Coimbra was an unexpected pleasure to visit. We had great accommodation in an accessible (by car) area, but removed from the every day bustle. Interesting old town, enjoyable music/fado offerings, good walks along the river and excellent food were all recommended by our helpful and knowledgable host. Had trouble finding parking at first (it's not well signed IMO),

    We recently spent two weeks in Portugal travelling by train and we stayed in 7 hotels during that time. This was the most comfortable of all the hotels we stayed it. We upgraded to a room with a balcony on the 5th floor and it was so worth the money. Not only did we have some outside space and an amazing view but we were also close to the bar and the roof terrace which was lovely in the evening. The breakfast buffet was absolutely outstanding - a fantastic selection of high quality loveliness!

    The location was perfect and having two bathrooms was a big convenience. The apartment had everything we could possibly need. Ismael, the host was absolutely the best out of all of our Portugal stays. He made sure that everything was satisfactory and checked on us during our stay. Ismael not only picked us up from the bus station upon our arrival, but took us on a tour of Coimbra before taking us to the apartment. He also drove us to the train station for our departure.

    It has been out absolute favourite stay in Portugal. The apartment is in the perfect location. you couldn’t get any closer to the university and many of the main sights. The view from the apartment was unbeatable. On top of there was a lovely bottle of green wine and a snack to welcome us. This extra touch made us feel so welcome. I would recommend this apartment to anyone going to Coimbra. We wish we could’ve stayed longer.

    I can't say enough good things about this special spot. it's so different from an ordinary hotel, it's authentically Portuguese, and so much love and care has been put into it. also the rooms are completely modern and stylish and up-to-date, while the common spaces retain a touch of the antique and traditional, while still being clean and lovely! Luis was a perfect host. this might be the best place to stay in coimbra!

    Everything, Paula was an exceptional hostess with an keen eye for details not only on a great property but she took time to give me a history lesson on the area, excellent dining recommendation and was a joy to talk too. I stayed at 14 different properties on my 21 day moto odyssey through Portugal and Spain and her boutique hotel was one of the best experiences. On top of all that Breakfast was wonderful.

    The location is fantastic--just a few step down the cobblestoned hill to the main square and main shopping street of the old town. Near many cafes and restaurants. Also near the old church where the first king of Portugal is buried. These units are being entirely refurbished by the owners in marble and wood. Incredibly clean! The duvet and towels are new and of good quality.

    Since I visited Coimbra for work, I didn't spend much time in the hotel, but I really got a good sleep- room was nice and beds very comfortable. WiFi signal was very strong and breakfast was really tasty. You can get some snacks from the bar, Stuff was helpful, and the location was very good- 10 min from the center itself, 5 min from the river. Would recommend!
