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.

    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.

    Interesting historical city with one of the oldest universities in the world. Old town on top of the hill is quite spectacular with two cathedrals and a myriad of historical buildings. On the other side of the hill there are well laid out Botanic gardens with tropical flora and great views. All this within 10 mins of city centre! Good transport links with rail and intercity express buses. 40 mins north by train takes you to coastal town of Aveiro which will be European city of culture for 2024. A minor Venice with canals and many beautiful buildings Canal trips by gondola and many interesting eating places.

    Coimbra was lovely and every meal that we had was excellent, unfortunately it rained for our whole visit which did impede what we were able to do. It was much more hilly than we had expected, but apart from that it was easy to get around and there is an excellent bus service.

    Coimbra is a beautiful old portuguese town.

    Coimbra is a beautiful old portuguese town. Full of charm and history, beautiful old buildings and extraordinary museum. Very nice to walk on both sides of the River Mondego. Some of the old an picturesque streets are a little steep, but awesome. Make sure you have dinner early, because restaurants close early too.

    Lovely BnB located really close to the old university in the center of Coimbra. Ideal location to easily reach by foot all the most famous tourist attractions of the city. At the check-in, the owner was very kind and helpful, recommending us places to visit and restaurants for dinner. The breakfast was excellent. A nice buffet was provided and it was possible also to ask for bacon to be cooked on the spot. I would recommend this cozy BnB to anyone who is stopping in Coimbra while on vacation in Portugal.

    Small hotel in the center of town. Hotel is in the lower part of town near the river; plenty of restaurants, stores and bars are nearby; and the historic university is about a 15-minute walk uphill. (Note: Hills are steep in Coimbra!) Hotel is family-owned, with pleasant owners. Bedroom and bathroom were clean, bed was comfortable, and daily housekeeping service was good. Bedroom had a small desk and chair, TV and wardrobe. WiFi service was acceptable. Price was reasonable, so the room was good value for money.

    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.

    The renovation of the casa was exceptional. Very modern touches while keeping the historic details. The mattress was the most comfortable yet in all of our Portugal stays. Great communication. Overall a very special stay. The host left a bottle of wine and there were a lot of spices, cooking supplies, coffee pods, etc. We appreciated the casa allowing dogs to stay. We will definitely come back again at some point the future. Overall, highly recommended.

    The location was quite good. There was a cafe Coimbra Doce across the road which served nice meals, with courteous staff, some speaking English. There was a launderette 3 minutes away, and a Continente supermarket two minutes away. A large post office one minute away. The town centre was within walking distance, and bus services in front of the hotel. Hot water was great. Electric kettle and fridge in the room was convenient. Breakfast was good too.

    There is probably no better location from which to explore Coimbra's major sites: the University, the Tower, the Library, the Palace. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of a slew of good restaurants. But you need to like to walk. The folks who run the hotel do everything in their power to make your stay enjoyable. I had my best night's sleep in Portugal in Coimbra. And the shower was the best I've seen anywhere -- I want one for home.

    The hotel is facing a cute little square on the edge of the town. My main purpose to visit Coimbra was to go to Conimbriga so I didn't want to stay on top of the hill near the university. So, for me, the location was perfect. You could still walk to the university (about 10 min walk) and it's only a few minutes walk from the town center. It's basic, nothing fancy, but it has everything you'd need. The staff was also very nice and helpful.

    A nice little old hotel with an updated air about it. Staff are professional. Parking is inconvenient - about 300 meters away and $10 a day, but it is a good walking neighborhood. We parked the rental car and didn't use it for the two days we were there Good restaurants and patisseries nearby. We did not take breakfast at the hotel as we enjoyed exploring the wide range of regional pastries for which Portugal is famous.

    The apartment has literally everything you need to live. Coffee machine, dishwasher, good set of dishes, TV, great internet I have never seen in Portugal, you name it you have it. Backyard and garden in front are definitely value added. The owner is very nice and helpful, however she does not speak English beyond the very basics. Parking is not a problem and location is OK if you are planning trips by car outside of Coimbra.

    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 have been to several "Pousadas das Juventude" all over Portugal, and in general you can expect overall pretty good standards and facilities. This specific one in Coimbra is clearly the worst I have been at. The Staff is nice though, but facilities are old and poor and below what is described. The space is mismanaged, lacking investment, cleaning could be better, no common areas to work/hangout, etc. Very disappointed

    Everything; especially the location. Situated near the old square, we were serenaded with smooth jazz in the morning. We could reach the market, the university, cathedral, and river bridge in easy walks. The hotel staff were very kind, especially helping us with parking and our bags. The roof top terrace above the Hotel Oslo was special too. We would stay there again.

    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!
