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...

    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.

    Coimbra is a great city with very interesting historical sites and churches. Interesting shops and restaurants. the Igreja santo Christo is especially good to visit situated in a lovely square. The adjoining old cafe has a wonderful atmosphere with a performance of FADO (traditional Portuguese music ) every weekday from 6pm

    Five-minute walk from Coimbra A train station; online pix...

    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),

    The world heritage site of the University Library is good...

    The world heritage site of the University Library is good but not exceptional. You need to book for it and the booking place is nowhere near the Library. The ticket gets you into the Chemistry Building and main hall, both well worth seeing. The Art Museum in the monastery and above the Roman Forum was the best place in Coimbra for me. St Tiago was the best church, brilliant early interior. Cathedral good and unusual in that was plain. Good views from the opposite side of the river and a couple of good monasteries there. Loads of good churches to see.Roman Conimbriga an occasional bus journey away is the best Roman site in Portugal. Funicular railway and an Exhibition place near the base. This used to be a monastic refectory and photogenic fountains close by. Really good. I suspect hardly any tourists visit I had visited Coimbra in Septermber 1978, amazed how many people now visit. Take the Lonely Planet Book with you.

    The location of the hotel is excellent… very close to the University of Coimbra. The hotel is a refurbished old house that is beautiful and comfortable. we had two rooms with a shared common area with kitchenette and sofas. the staff was extremely friendly. They gave us great recommendations for lunch and dinner, they also welcomed us with a bottle of champagne and cake, and gave us cookies when we checked out. the rooms are small, but comfortable, and really nicely decorated.

    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.

    The location was ideal for walking and cycling in and around Coimbra. We were able to park at the hotel and conveniently access the car for side trips to Penacova and Luso. The breakfast included great coffee, espresso, yogurt, fruit, pastry, cereal, scrambled eggs, and much more. We had an amazing view of historic hill town. The management and staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. They loaned us two bikes and helped us choose routes on local rec trails.

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.

This is a great, efficient, professionally staffed small hotel with a very good breakfast, a very nice bar area (open til 1AM, offering late night snacks) with delightful views, excellent housekeeping and truly nice people who are kind and gracious. We had a lovely stay in a beautiful city.

    Hotel Tivoli is more like a business hotel than a tourist hotel, but our room was quite large and comfortable. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the center of Coimbra, and is located approximately mid-way between the Coimbra A and Coimbra B train stations. There's a good restaurant attached to the hotel.

    The service was first class and the grounds of this hotel are lovely to walk around. Coimbra is so small you really can't be in a bad location although this is across the water from the "downtown" area. The breakfast spread was extensive and included both hot and cold, savory and sweet options.
