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: great. Right next to the main street with shops, restaurants and such. A great walk to the famous Coimbra university. You can take a bus from the train station and it's a short 5 min walking distance. Room: Beautiful room - high ceiling, balcony with the view of the river and the main street. Still quiet when the window is closed; Breakfast: Eggs, caffe, breads/crossoint, pastries, fresh fruit. Very good espresso. Had tabasco sauce and black pepper. Other: the lounge downstairs is nice with the old-world decor and lighting although the sofa covers are falling apart. If visiting Coimbra again, I would stay here (but preferably in a different room due to the bathroom layout, see the negatives).

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.

    The town is beautiful.

    The town is beautiful. We did the tour of the university and the fado concert and both were outstanding. The people were really nice and the town is both quaint and inviting. I loved it more than the bigger cities of Porto and Lisbon. I guess it depends on what you like, but I found it to be a wonderful place to visit. Be prepared to walk up some steep hills. Not as slippery as Lisbon, but just as challenging. And still, really worth the hike up to the university area... The Convento de Santa Clara a Nova is a real gem on the opposite side of the river, close to where we stayed. The tour was fascinating and the views also were spectacular. No other tourists were there when we visited, and we were able to get a private tour from one of the guides. We really enjoyed it immensely.

    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.

    This is a boutique hotel located just below the University Library in central Coimbra. We stayed for one night as part of a one-week holiday in western Portugal. Limited free parking was available outside the hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable and on two levels with the bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor. The buffet breakfast was good. The price was high compared to some of the other hotels we stayed at in Portugal. All the staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to meet our needs.

    One of the nicest., homely properties we staying Portugal. Property has an interesting history and this is tastefully respected in decor and presentation. Everything was done to perfection, hosts could not be more helpful, staff top class and food, much of which was produced on-site, was lovely.

    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!

    Bed was comfy but the thin blanket kept me cold at night. I asked for an extra blanket and staff obliged so my other nights were snug and toasty. Best shower I’ve had in Portugal! Very nice staff. Location is close to train station and about 20 minute walk to bus station.
